Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
I want you to take three seconds and think…(Close your eyes and think!)
When is the last time you put something off that you dreamed about doing?
Maybe you want to write a book, hike a mountain, or start a side business and every time you think about doing it you get excited.
But then, you said "I can't, maybe tomorrow?" and then months later you still did...NOTHING.
Many people spend a great deal of energy arguing for their own limitations; "I can't do that," "I can't help it, I've always been that way," and thousands of other negative and self-defeating statements.
Our minds are powerful instruments. When we decide that something is true or beyond our reach, it's very difficult to pierce through this self-created hurdle. When we argue for our position, it's nearly impossible. Suppose, for example, you tell yourself, "I can't write." You'll look for examples to prove your position. You'll fill your head with limitations that will frighten you from trying. In order to become a writer or anything else, the first step is to silence your greatest critic—YOU!
It's important to keep the promises you make to yourself because it's directly correlated with your confidence and how much you value yourself.
Start taking on challenges that are difficult for you to do. But be careful.
Do not lose focus on what you are trying to do. If you do, you’ll grow your negative thoughts and they will start to control your future behaviors.
If you choose to believe negative thoughts you’ll slowly start to devalue yourself and your dreams. You’ll never get started.
Those thoughts are very powerful. But there’s one thing that will help build confidence and breakdown resistance...ACTION.
So if you plan to write a book, hike a mountain, or start a business...START!
It doesn’t matter if you feel like it, you won’t. It doesn’t matter if it’s as good as you envision it to be, it’s not.
But over time, it will get better and easier.
Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.
Remember, all the hard work. All the sacrifices. All the sleepless nights, struggles, downfalls, it all pays off. Your small sacrifices go along the way.
Chase your dreams and goals in life! As long as you're breathing, there's still hope! Pray, always ask God for wisdom, direction and guidance! Fighting! You can do it! We can do it!
