Let Your Light Shine

It's common to feel shy especially when you are in a crowd of unfamiliar people. Mixed feelings occurs. 

"Should I do this or that..."

Many years ago I was assigned to be a script writer. Honestly, I didn't know where to start. Back then, internet wasn't available so I have to rely with books, recommendation and pure confidence. 

It wasn't easy because the words will be the key to the success of the play. 

And it's not just an ordinary one. 

It was Romeo & Juliet. 

That was a turning point for me. And never knew I had it. Yet I did. 

Friends, the light within is one of the magical powers that needs to be out. 

It can bring confidence, especially if it is for a cause. 

Be shy. 

But don't let that stop you.

Challenging oneself

As we get along with so many things to do, it feels good to have a sense of control over our lives. 

Schedule runs smoothly. 

Finances are checked. 

Surrounded by good people. 

An so on. 

Then came boredom. 

It's perfectly fine to feel bored when you know that you shouldn't. It's in our nature to feel unchallenged. 

It's like being a champion. You always feel the need to have a challenger. 

For me, its simple. 

I think the best approach is to first accept the fact that when you consistently do the same effective routine with positve results then celebrate as if you have won the next thing. 

Be patient and ready to meet any challenge that you will face. 

After all, life is an everyday battle. 😉

Great Things Starts from Imagination

 When I was a kid, I always fantasize being a hero. Fighting bad guys. Coming through tough situations. Losing. Winning in the name of justice. 

Fast forward. 

Along the way that imaginative behavior slowly fade. 

It is quite common because as we get old, reality weigh more than fantasy. 

Yet if you look back to our history books, most or maybe all successful men & women started their plans from imaginations. 

No one ever thought that a person with an early speech delay could have conceived the relatively theory. 

A businessman who have been turned down by a local drug store is now a multi billionaire, owning a huge chain of malls. 

A simple housewife became a national leader. 

All because of a single behavior that we share. 


Impossibilities became possibilities.

The Art of Slowness

Do you ever have that feeling of constantly repeating when you hurry up?

I do. 

It happens when I had too many cups of coffee. 

A lot of things race on my mind, instead of being focused. 

End up repeating things unnecessarily. 

Who can blame a person who is excited to get things done. 

Well, a little art of slowness is all we need. 

Viewed as a procrastinating behavior, slowness has been demonized by many as an act of counter cooperation. 

As if you're not doing it with enthusiasm. 

Time has changed our perspective of time itself. 

We want it fast, hot, and now. 


But we're not computers. 

We think we can but we're not. 

We have emotions, and we need to take care of it. Like no has cooked an exceptional meal within seconds. 

Art can't be rush. 

Easy way

A lot of new great things happened to me and my wife lately that sometimes I can't thank enough. 

Some of the things that we have wished for are now happening. 

It is not perfect. 

It's worth the wait. 

When you plan important things in your life, no matter how big or small, what pushes you matters more than the goal. 

It's the undying resiliency. 

I have to admit that I have waited, for a long time to achieve great things. 

There more times that I give up rather than carry on. 

It's because I want the easy way. 


Not knowing that shortcuts are dangerous. 

It gives immediate gratification yet at the has a great deal of suffering at the end.

Name, Not Fame

Are you willing to put your name to shame for fame?

It has been done over and over throughout history that both men and women chose fame. 

Who can blame them? It feels good, to be RICH and famous. 

You have friends. Family loves you. You're the go to guy. Literally, attention is centered to you. 

I have to admit that I myself wish to have everything. Because I have my reasons. 

Convenience. Security. Most of all, to provide. 

Yet, at what cost?

An example, the late President Marcos, who had everything. 

Power. Respect. Fame. 

But now he is being rembered as the most hated dictator. 

Are you willing  to trade your name for shame?
