Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Never give up. There is no such thing as an ending, just a new beginning.
What Is Life?
Life is a gift from God, accept it. It is an adventure, dare it. It is a mystery, unfold it. It is a puzzle, solve it. It is a game, play it. It can be a struggle, face it. It is beauty, praise it. It is an opportunity, take it.
The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow.
I read the book A Young Man's Manual To A Successful Life by JPaul Hernandez. The book is for the everyday guy who needs to remember his real worth as a man. To all women, you can give or share this book to your brothers, father, husband or even to your boyfriend. It will help them understand what great men do and what mistakes to avoid to help them become a better man.
I would like to share some learnings on how to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. I am sure it will help you a lot, especially to all gentlemen readers.
Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged.
Are You Afraid?
When you feel afraid, I encourage you to tell yourself what God told Joshua: "Be strong and courageous!" God is with you and He wants you to be the man He designed you to be. Mark Twain once said: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
4 Easy Steps To Have A Meaningful Life
Free To Live
Stop waiting for tomorrow, or when you get older, or when life becomes easier. Stop blaming other people. Stop procrastinating. You are free to live your best life today.
Free To Forgive
Forgive that one person you said you could never forgive. When you do that, you'll realize that you set yourself free more than the other person.
Free To Find Something Worth Fighting For
Think about what excited you and made you feel alive.
Free To Make Mistakes (Until You Find What You're Looking For)
Believe that you can have that life you dream of. Work on digging out that treasure inside you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid.
Fear Of Failure
The fear of failing is a different kind of poison because it won't kill you immediately. It slowly numbs your feelings, then it blocks your motor functions until you don't function anymore and you die.
6 Areas In Your Life That You Need To Win
Remember the acronym for it is DREAMS.
Find your passion, do what you love and find a way to make money from doing what you love.
They say that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. So review your friends also. Do they help you become a better person? If not, I suggest that you spend more time with people who do.
Find a community that can help you have a deeper relationship with God. A good prayer group will help you become the man God designed you to be.
Free yourself from limiting beliefs, from addiction and other things that hinder you from being the best person you can be. Develop an attitude of gratitude.
Money is neither good nor bad. It just magnifies a person's character. The truth is we will always need money. Think about having different income streams. Start investing. Start saving more also.
Successful people are not boring people. Enjoy life and cherish every moment.
