Have you ever found yourself doing nonsense things such as leaving crumpled papers on your desk, looking yourself at the mirror for so long, sleeping while your cell phone is still charging, disobeying traffic rules, abusing the benefits of your credit card until you found yourself in deep debt, wasting your energy thinking about your enemies and many more? To be honest, me too is doing some of stupid things that are not helping me in my life. I always find myself switching to another task when the other one is not yet finished. This ugly behavior causes me a lot of stress and it decreases my productivity. I always ask myself why do I keep on doing that even if I know from the beginning that it will not help me at all. I guess most of us do this just to relieve stress for a while, we tend to do stupid things just to forget or relieve the emotional stress that we are experiencing at the moment. What we do not know is that it will add a heavier burden once the effect is already there. Nobody is perfect but we can lessen the imperfections. To avoid being trapped in a more difficult situations, we must learn to how accept our ugly behavior and learn how to eliminate at least 75% of them, like what I’ve said nobody is perfect so in reality we cannot remove all those ugly behaviors that causing us so much trouble but we can lessen them so we can live in a healthier and better life.

As a motivator I also have some troubles defeating the demons in my life. I got lazy when I finally take home my dream car. I thought I am already the best, I thought that I can already have everything that I want. Starting from October last year my life was full of celebration. Drinking here, drinking there and drinking everywhere have been my lifestyle. I feel that when January 2012 comes then everything will be fine again. I am wrong, so much wrong. I started to build a habit that was not right for achieving higher goals. I become so lazy, watching TV has been my favorite past time. Sleeping for more than 12 hours a day was encoded in my system. I feel that there is so much money remaining on my bank account so there is no need to worry. I become so complacent relaxed and I take every second for granted. Good thing there is still enough breathing room for change and getting back to my old self. There is really no right time for changing, I wait for January 2012 but it is almost February till I finally awake. I am still thankful that it is not too late to go back to my old self again. I am very sorry to all my clients that I turned down. To all my followers that I kept waiting, starting from today new article will be posted everyday.

When I was a kid at 10 years of age all I want is to have a bike, I always pray and wish that one day my parents will buy me a bike, I always envy my friends who have bike because they can go to any places that they want and I am always left alone. For some reasons my parents don’t want to buy me a bicycle, they always have excuses it is either we don’t have money or it is not good for us. I don’t understand them and I felt bad because I cannot join my playmates that have bikes. As I grew up that dream was already forgotten and I think I don’t need that anymore. My dream got bigger, I was dreaming of having my own car. I know my parents cannot give me this dream, not even anyone. I told myself that I am going to have my own car this 2011 no matter what happened. I even told my father who was about to leave us and go back to his work at abroad that I will be the one who will pick him up at the airport the moment he went back to the Philippines. He and my mom were laughing and they think that I am joking, they don’t know that I am so serious about this thing. The first time I saw the Mazda 3 car I knew that this is the car that I want, I knew that I am going to have this regardless of its specifications and price. Everytime I saw a Mazda 3 car running or parking anywhere, I cannot take away my eyes from it. I always told myself that one day I am also going to have it. I am visualizing everyday that I am driving a Mazda 3 car. In order to have this I work hard everyday, push my mind and body to the limits, defeat all the obstacles that come on my way until one day I got to the point where I have enough money to bring this car into our home. Time was so fast, everybody was shocked they cannot believe that I did it. I too cannot even believe that I am holding my dream car, driving it and parking it anywhere. There were so many challenges that I have to pass before having this car like difficulties in driving lessons, getting student permit, transaction with the right bank and many more but those difficulties didn’t bother me at all. I was so focused on making this dream happened and my hard work pays off. Those sleepless nights, those grinds, those sacrifices are not wasted. Yes this is just an instalment car but I already have it and my next goal is to have it fully paid at the end of the year 2012. Many eyebrows will be raised again and they will tell me that I cannot do it but they also told me this before and I proved them wrong. This car is the evidence that once we set our minds into something nothing is impossible.

I don’t know if our Christmas Tree this year was surrounded by more gifts than last year. All I know is our family has provided enough gifts for special people in our lives this Christmas. Sorry because my post is a little too late because I really needed extra days for Christmas vacation, I really enjoy the season. I am really thankful for the blessings that we have this year, I am not saying that we really have so much. Even if we have no gifts in our Christmas Tree I will still be happy, whatever life brings to us I will proudly embrace it because that is the reflection of our work ethic. Our Christmas tree is not abundant with expensive gifts but for me these blessings are worth sharing to others.
