What you'll do

Have you ever experience your day suddenly falls apart before it even begins? Feeling unmotivated, easily irritable, and lost for no reason?

I feel you.

My name is Syahidah and I have been representing Singapore in para-archery for 5 years. I love archery - it gives me joy and purpose.

But, I fell "hard" in 2018. The pressure from my (former) coach left me feeling stressed. It affected my sleep, mood, and sporting performance. I no longer enjoy archery as I used to. Ultimately, it led to a serious injury that almost made me give up archery for good.

For us athletes, we called this "the slump". Slumps happen because we lose control of our focus and concentration.

One way out: Explore Your Plans

By sharing my experiences as a national athlete, I hope that you too can "jumpstart" and take control of your day.

Our session will begin with sharing my journey as a national para-archer: from my beginnings to beating my slump that led me to become World Champion and Rank No.1 in World Archery.

Next, I will guide you through an interactive visioning and goal-setting exercise. This will get you started in planning your journey.

The session will be done in a sport-context. But, I believe the knowledge gained can be applied in your daily life.

Let's have fun and conquer these slumps!

Hi! I'm Syahidah Alim and I'm a Paralympic archer from Team Singapore. I'm also World and Asian Para Champion (2019) and I’m currently No. 1 in the World Archery World Rankings.

I've been representing Compound Archery for Singapore since 2015. Throughout my journey as an elite athlete, I've competed in ASEAN Para Games (2015, 2017), Asian Para Games (2018), and the Paralympic Games (2016).

Now, I'm all pumped up with my preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

By sharing the experiences of my journey, I hope to motivate and inspire everyone to get started on their own sporting journey.

To meet & listen to World Champion like Syahidah was an Experience one can cherish throughout his / her life after the session. Syahidah was extremely polite, gentle and answered all questions of the participants. She has built in a unique way to make this Experience very interesting by asking Guests to "draw" their visions & goals in life ! This Experience is highly recommended.

Syahidah was an amazing host. She told us about her personal experiences on how she dealt with the slump period in her professional career, and also how she balances her daily life. She made us take some interactive exercises, which involved the three types of goals to achieve our success. This was very thoughtful and inspiring for us. She also responded to our questions with simplicity and personal touch.
