Honesty is not for cheap people

Honesty is not for cheap people. This is what Warren Buffet said in one of his speeches. I agree. I have experienced how to be back stabbed by people. But then again, keeping Buffet's words of wisdom the pain that you will feel for those that you trusted but didn't take care of it, will simply be gone.

Bottom line, be at peace because you trusted someone. It is never your fault if they threw that trust away.

Pain is temporary

Life is a challenge.

It is like climbing Mt. Pulag - one of the highest peaks in the Philippines,  the trail is winding, there are ups and downs while you are trying to reach the peak. There are even instances that you will doubt yourself if you can reach the top. The cold winds are not helping to boost your confidence during this moment of doubt.

However, the doubts are just temporary. Upon reaching and resting at Camp 1, your spirit will be buoyed. Alas, Camp 2 is there, and it is time to rest. Your bones, maybe tired, but your heart and mind is so excited looking forward in reaching the top when daybreak comes.

When daybreak comes, and you reached the top, the sea of clouds will welcome you.

The ultimate reward for all your doubts and hardships.

Life is a challenge. It should be. Pain is temporary. After experiencing that pain, your sea of clouds awaits you.

You Cannot Stay in the Past

There are wonderful memories. They are magical, but if they are gone like the people you work with in the past you cannot do anything but to move forward.

You cannot stay in the past, others have moved on and so must you.

Life is about moving forward and continuing the journey.

The best thing you can do is just appreciate the people that came along your way, and be excited that new set of individuals are waiting to share your journey in work and in life.

Do Good is the Starting Point of Business

Aisa Mijeno immersed herself in Kalinga and saw the need for a sustainable and accessible electricity in a place where people need to walk for six hours to buy kerosene to power their lamps.

Seeing the need, Aisa Mijeno created a lamp that is powered by mixing salt and water - a saline solution.

As of the moment, her invention is winning her awards and adulation which she did not intend to have, all she wants is to do good.

Doing good is the starting point of a business. It is not profit. Profit only follows when people feel that you intend to make their lives better.

If you make the lives of the society better, you will get their support, you will get a generous support.

So do good, create something good and feel the blessings of what you have created.

You have Aisa Mijeno as a model, now it is your turn.

You need to because you have the power to do so.

Create because there is a need. Create because you have the gift to convert your ideas into reality.
Create because when you do, you are fulfilling your purpose.

Most importantly, create because when you do something positive comes out, that benefits you  and society that you live in.

Media Should Show Balance Presentation of APEC

Yes, there are traffic and rallies being staged, an effect of APEC - an event hosted by our country.

Traffic is not an excuse, people must not suffer because of the event, but traffic is part of our daily life in Metro Manila, we have been suffering from this problem even before APEC, only now it was heightened.

Rallies are symbols of democracy, so yes, we can tolerate that.

But what we cannot tolerate is the total disregard of the good things APEC is bringing to us. Hosting it means we can show our capabilities as a country, and we are very capable as evidence of how the event is turning into.

Add to the fact the following, the infrastructures and beautifications made in welcoming the guests, which after the event we will continue to use.

How about the positive tourism effect of the visitors that will be coming in, the last estimate is around 9,000 foreign delegates.

More so, the conferences organized to share knowledge and information. These are huge in terms of giving the Filipino attendees a deeper understanding of the Global Politics, Business and Success Stories of Entrepreneurship.

Lastly, the economic impact of the business and trade deals forged during the event.

APEC as an apple has two sides the good and the bad, can we present both sides.

From where I stand, all I hear are the rants from our traffic experiences and protest rallies.

So here is the challenge for all the media outlets covering the event,  strive to show the two sides of APEC, the yin and yang.

For all you know, the good sides farther outweighs the short moments of discomfort we have because of APEC.

Extremism Unmasked

Your belief  doesn't make you a better person, your behavior does.

The recent Paris Attack and other attacks that took place in other parts of the world to show devotion to a belief do not justify the barbaric behavior.

Why? Is the question that resides in the head of the people all over the world.

Once, somebody said at an event similar to the Paris Attack that what happened is a SENSELESS KILLING. Somebody quip, "Why is there a SENSIBLE KILLING".

Your belief  doesn't make you a better person, your behavior does.

I hope that our HUMANITY rules the world at the end of the day and that KILLINGS for the sake of forwarding our beliefs stop.
