03 FACTORS THAT RUIN YOUR SAVINGS

Oktubre 12, 2018

Saving is easy to say than
done and here is the 3 factors
that ruin your saving plan…

FOOD

Whether this is coffee
or not, all of what
you eat are mostly
what ruins your budget.

If you will monitor
you’re expenses you’ll
notice that food
is one that ruin
your plan, it could
be a small thing but
if you summed it up
you’ll be overwhelmed
the amount you spend
to mere food itself.

Reason is because we
human either wants
pleasure or some sort
of comfort and one
of the source for that
is food. Also when
we wanted to celebrate
something whether it is
small or big occasion
we all do celebrate
by buying food, thru
food we express how
special the day is…

CLOTHS/SHOES

Another factor that ruins
your saving is buying cloths
that you really don’t need,
especially when we are being trap
to buy one when there is a
“sale” as we are having the
mentality of out smarting
the future, where we convince
ourselves that we must
buy now or else we will
miss the opportunity to take
advantage of this sale but
eventually you’ll realize
that the “sale” promo is
the one took advantage on
your purse.

Although it could also
be correct that in some
point of your life you
really need to buy a clothes
or a fair of shoes but
according to my experience
it happened to me very
rare and if I will buy
a cloths or shoes I’d prepare
to buy the high quality
brands because it is more
durable and will last longer
than the cheaper brands, now
there is an argument that
what if the particular
“high quality” brand is
on sale, do you think that
is a smart move to buy it?

For me personally I would
not, base to my own experience
most of the time that
high quality cloth that
is in promo sale that you
bought will most likely
end-up sitting into your
closet, waiting for that
right time to be summoned
and guess what most of
the time it is not getting
summoned because of your
need of replacement but
for you to send it as a
gift to someone.

Just like foods, cloths
give’s us pleasure, it
gives us that sense of
being relevant or outstanding
reason why shopping itself
has a potential to be
addictive and if you
don’t do something about
it this will definitely
ruined your saving strategy
plan.

GADGETS

For me you cannot
actually blame the
people who wants to
have latest, fastest
and/or advance gadget
be it phone, gaming
gears etc. because
in the tech world
advancement is really
fast and being the
person who’s on
the latest trend really
need to pay the price.

To some being in touch
to the latest trend
is necessary in order
for them to catch-up
or be ahead to their game
while others are just
catching-up for the sake
of pride and ego.

Which ever side you are
please do take note
that sometimes the
features of a particular
gear’s advancement are
manageable and still
the human skill is
still not yet irreplaceable
by today’s technology
so I would say skill
over your gears still
matter much.

Weighing your technical
advancement versus to your
financial income
must be put into
microscope in order for
you to decide where you’ll
draw the line of limitation
when and where you must
consider your spending.

On the final note, Please
dont make a mistake to
think that “Pleasure” is
bad.

We all do need pleasure
in life.

In fact this is
our birthright.

The thing
is that the way we
end up is also our
responsibility,
so indulging on so
much pleasure that will
put us on poor situation
is much like digging
your own grave and this
must not be the scenario.

Although to many it
already happened and
to some their on the verge
of it, please don’t
put yourself on that situation.

But also I will not shy away
to tell you that extravagant
pleasure are not for all too,
because for this to enjoy you
need to work for it which is
most of the time for people like
me the service of grand and simple
pleasure has the same taste
if you’ll think it through.

WINNING LIFE IS WHEN YOU FIND MEANING FROM SUFFERING

Hulyo 8, 2018

From one of my all time
favorite Film the Rocky VI
I quote when Balboa says
something like this…

“Nobody can hit harder
than life, but it is not
how hard you hit but how
hard you can take the hit
and keep moving forward,
its not how hard you hit
but how you take a hit and
keep moving forward”

As we think of it its true.
Its not the amount of taking
a score but how much pain we
can take and in somehow we
manage to live life and move
forward… Easy to say than
done but question is how?

Some amount of great upset,
failure, humiliation etc.
is truly unbearable and difficult
to manage and question is
what we need to do to handle
all of this and be able
to “move forward” or to live?

the answer is simply to
find meaning…

Find the meaning of your
suffering whether it is lost,
failure, disappointment, tragedy
or whatever that pain is about…

you got to find the meaning, you
got to find what is the message
to you… From there you can then
find the answer, the purpose,
the strength, the hope, the
reason and all of the above
in order for you to move forward
and keep on living.

When you keep on living or
go forward that is the definition
of winning in life.

Find a place for you and yourself,
listen to yourself, ask and find
the meaning as you find it you
find the light that will lead
you to ease and make suffering bearable.

 


SA PANAHON NGAYON LAHAT TAYO MAY “SAY”

Nobyembre 1, 2017

Tulad ng sabi ng marami iba na
ang panahon ngayon, lahat tayo
may SAY

Ibig kung sabihin lahat tayo
may kakayahan at kalayaan ng magpahiwatig
ng ating opinyon o damdamin
sa madla, na hindi na nangangailangan
na magpunta sa anumang estasyon
ng TV o Radyo, kailangan mo lang
ay isang telepono na may
kamera at matinong signal ng internet
at voila! isa ka ng instant
reporter, artista o komentarista.

Kung gusto mo nga gumawa
ka ng sarili mong pelikula
gamit ang cellphone cam
ay pu-pwede, may mga gumagawa
na ng ganyan, mga short films
gamit ang cellphone cam at
syempre pag nagawa mo iyon
may karapatan ka ng mag-dala
ng titulo bilang Director o Aktor.

Maaring di sumang-ayon ang iba
na tila ba parang insulto ito
sa mga nag-tuon ng mahabang oras
at panahon para sa pag-gawa ng
pelikula at pag-arte pero
pasensya na po, ganun talaga
ang buhay. Di ba noon bago
tayo magkaroon ng ideya sa isang
partikular na paksa kelangan
pa nating pumunta ng library?
Kapag may gusto tayong maintindihang
salita binubuklat natin
ang dictionary? pero ngayon
kailangan mo lang telepono at
internet at 95% makukuha mo
ang gusto mong malaman. Di na
kelangan gaano magpunta sa library
pwera nalang kung talagang
masyadong extra-ordinaryo yung
paksang sinasaliksik mo.

Dati kapag may naramdaman
kang masakit sa katawan mo
at gusto mo malaman ang dahilan
kailangan mo pang pumunta sa
doctor para mag-pa check-up na
kung saan maaring ang sabihin
sa iyo ay kung anu-anong dahilan
at nakakalungkot pa nito may
mga doktor na peperahan ka lang,
yun bang simpleng sakit pinalalaki
pa pero ngayon i-google mo lang
may ideya ka na at kung minsan
mas marami ka pang alam
sa mismong doctor.

Kulang nalang sa mga tao ngayon
ay lakas ng loob at maintindihan
niya kung alin at ano sa mga
nalalaman niya ang may kalidad
at makakatulong sa kanyang kapwa
na malaman, matapos nito madali
nalang ang lahat.

Babala lang po na kapag
isina-publiko mo ang iyong
opinyon laging may magka-pares
na balik iyan, isang maganda
at pangit na kumento at nasa
sa inyo na kung papaano ito
dadalhin o titignan.

Lahat na po tayo ngayon
may say basta ingat-ingat lang.

 


DENIALS

Oktubre 20, 2017

I just want to focus on one
of the greatest topic that
all ages must face whatever
or wherever phase of their
lives they are now.

Denials is a initial reaction
of everyone, denial is part
of our defense system, there
is nothing wrong to deny something
but please understand
that it is only okay to deny
for the purpose of creating
a space for you to deal the
issue.

There are events
in our lives that on our
initial understanding it
seems we need to know something
more about it, not because
we want to gather information
to revise the truth and
manipulate it so we’ll look
good in the end but we just
need to reach that level
of satisfaction on understanding
the situation.

its hard to accept something that you
dont understand because eventually
doubt could ruin your peace of mind
it is just right to know the
events, the issue or whatever that
complicated topic of your life
is before you say you accept it
because thru truly understanding it
you can only switch-on the
positive vibe and from understanding
you’ll learn naturally how to
embrace it and you’ll effortlessly
realize the silver linings and
lessons that really brought you
to learn.

Denial or denials is just
like a quick fix and a
first aid at the same time.

It is never a cure or a
permanent solution.

You still need to go
through medication
or if the problem is
that seriouse you could
undergo to some operations
as well.

Denials has the potential
to create a massive pain
like cancer into our life,
because denials has
that power to convince
you that everything is
alright or you are
doing the right thing
but you know and you
can hear your conscience
shouting at you out loud
that you’re not…

But if it is being
use in appropriate
manner denial is a
very friendly companion
to secure your pride
and temporarily create
a space to embrace the
truth gracefully…

 


SOCIAL ROBOTS

Abril 15, 2017

I say this is what
our society looks like
these days…

Humans are the reference
of robots but eventually
it looks like that
some of us are degrading
themselves and leveling
to the robot consciousnes 🙂

We use our fellowmen
just like a tool
and most of the time
we miss the fact that
they are human and
some of us ask why?
On this modern day
I say empathising
is a luxuirious thing
to do because as we
are programmed to
be in haste, chasing
dreams that are actually
fauxy even though
we are aware on that
but due to strong
codes that is ingrained
in our mind we are
just auto-piloting and
just going to the
flow… a flow where
we actually dont want
to go thru.

But the special features
of human is that we
can “choose” we can
be independent, we
can fix ourselves
far better than robots.

Even how it may be complicated
the errors and faults in
our mind, how mess up the
connections and relations
of beliefs, principles
and/or values, it can
still be fix by us, that
is the truth but it may
not sound as easy as that
but the bright side is
it is sure thing posible
that this can be fix.

This is nice thing to
know as individual but
talking a society of robots
that’s different story
but still theres a hope
because as what they said
it all start from individual
first.

 


LUCK is the short word to ACT OF GOD

Mayo 8, 2016

IMG_2692_Fotor

 

Be it a good or bad it is
a undenying fact that it
is coming from the higher power.

Call it to the name that comforts
you. But in the end my point
is whatever happen it is because
of that energy, that inteligent
creator orchestrating the
moments by moments of our lives
that eventually if you
look back deeply it will
shape a picture of beauty
and elegance.

At first this is hard to
accept. In any phases of
life I would like to agree
that stage 1 is always the
confusing, mind buggling
or hard part. Because you
dont know anything, your new
and trying to learn the basics
but once you move on you
come to know that there
are tracks that leads you
to move on until you
finally reach the destination
or you finally decide where
you’ll end your journey.

 

 


ANG PINAKA IMPORTANTE SA BUHAY AY ANG KABIGUAN

Mayo 18, 2015

 

Sawa na kasi akong mabasa o marinig
na ANG PINAKA IMPORTANTE DAW SA BUHAY
AY “MASAYA” KA!

Pero kidding aside after
many years right now
I am confident to say
that FAILURE IS THE SECRET…

Secret for happines
Success
Strenght
Wisdom
etsetera etsetera etsetera…

Mula sa failures o mga Kabiguan
dito tayo natututo… Dito
tayo sumusubok ng bago, mula
sa kabiguan nagsisikap tayo
umasenso mapa physical, pinansyal
mental o espiritual…

Tulad ng lagi kung sinasabi
hindi ko nirerekumendang
sadyain o puntiryahin mong
mabigo ka dahil isang malaking
kalokohan ito… Ang ninanais
kung ipunto ay huwag  mong
hayaang maging balakid ang
ideya ng kabiguan sa mga gusto
mo sa buhay…

Halimbawa nalang sa pagsubok
sa bagong larangan o pagpasok
sa bagong relasyon maaring
nangangamba ka na hindi “mag-work-out”
ang ideya pero sa kabilang
banda naniniwala ka na may pag-asang
magtagumpay ang plano mo, kumbaga
ang sitwasyon nahahati sa dalawa
ang isip mo, isa sa gusto at isa
ay ayaw dahil napipigilan ka
ng ideya tungkol sa “kabiguan”
sa ganitong sitwasyon pumapasok
ang gusto ko ipunto… LET YOURSELF
FAIL!

Ituloy mo ang plano mo o gusto
at kung mag-work-out edi masaya!
kung hindi naman at least magkaroon
ka ng ideya kung bakit hindi
nangyari ang pinlano mo…

Hindi kapintasan ang magkaroon
ka ng loss sa record mo. Kumbaga
sa boxing aanhin mo yung zero loss
ka at 100 ang wins mo pero alam naman
ng mga tao na yung mga 100 na iyon
eh kung tutuusin hindi mo ka-level?

Parang lumalabas eh niloloko mo
lang ang sarili mo nun di ba?

Pero baligtarin natin ang sitwasyon
at ibahin ng kaunti ang istorya
paano kung yung isang boksingero
na maraming talo tapos isang laban
niya tinalo niya yung Champion? o
isang boksingero na malakas at mabilis?
Ano masasabi mo dun? Wow di ba?

Kahit sabihin mo na kakaunti lang
ang panalong nakatala sa record
mo pero yung mga panalo naman na
iyon ay big time mas maganda pakingan
yun di ba?

Ang totoo nito lahat tayo matatalo
at matatalo ng matatalo kahit
ba manalo na tayo ay dadating
parin ang oras na makakatikim tayo
ng kabiguan… Dahil habang
buhay tayo ay hindi tayo titigil
matuto at mula sa kabiguan dito
tayo natututo, dito natin nakikita
kung ano yung tama, mali, sobra
o kakaunti…

Sabi nga ni Sylvester Stallone
sa Rocky VI

“Nobody can hit harder than
life, but it aint about hitting
but being hit and keep moving forward.
Being Hit and keep moving forward”

Ito pagkakatanda kung sinabi niya…

Good day!
