YOU, IKAW at wala ng iba pa!


Ikaw na! No, Tito Boy, Ikaw na! The popular line of Boy Abunda and his guest in the end of the interview.

IKAW. YOU, are the only one who holds your future. You are here in your present situation because of the past decisions and  all the things that you did.

You may already heard this story about the wise old man and a little boy.

A little boy is holding a bird in his hands which he is hiding in his back.

He saw the wise old man passed by and asked: “Can you guess if the bird in my hands is dead or alive?

“The wise old man answered: “The answer to that question lays in YOUR hands, young boy!”

I guess you may already explain the answer, right?

I remember the time when I graduated in  high school.

My father told me that its up to me if I will continue to go to college or look for a job already.

I got stunned because I don’t know if I can find a good job back then.

So, I decided to continue my study in college even if some of my friends already stopped their studies. Fortunately, because of that action I got a good job and comfortable living.

My friend, you are the only who can make your dreams a reality. STOP BLAMING OTHERS, COMPLAINING AND MAKING EXCUSES.

-You are poor because your parents are poor.

-You don’t have your own house because you are unlucky.

-You hate your job and think no other company that will hire you.

-You blame the government because of the traffic that cause you stress.

Its ENDLESS. Even if Duterte or other presidentiables won, nothing will change in your life unless you change your self and thinking.

So, get up and plan your goals on how to achieve your dreams. Have a positive attitude and take small steps everyday until you succeed in life.



To your financial success,
