How many times have you heard or said the statement: “the calm before the storm”. It’s a common phrase we say when things seem to be moving smoothly and without much problems. But that doesn’t last for long. This period may last from days to weeks and if you are lucky; a few months. We tend to focus our attention on the serene and comfort state we feel while in the back of our minds anticipating havoc. “It must be on its way,” we say. We know things aren’t Continue reading
How many times you catch yourself in situations, you wish you never found yourself in. How often had it happened over the course of your life, where you are stuck at a cross road. And you see both paths clearly. You know what you have to do, but almost paralyzed and having difficulty to do it. You know you have to take action before it gets out of hand. Continue reading
It’s a Saturday afternoon, the sun is shining through a beautiful sky and I am alone in an Asian country. Sitting on a bench on the side of a small square eating my grilled corn, observing my surroundings, listening to the activities around me; and I go in deep thoughts. Continue reading
In an earlier post, I briefly touched on this point as part of another subject. Let me elaborate further if I may. Who stops and asks himself this question?? How many people actually care about being remembered or even making an impact in this world? Have you ever thought to yourself; what is my legacy? Does my presence in this life even matter? Question after question because the answer is yet to be seen. It is not something you plan for and then get to see your result. It’s simply Continue reading
Some people find themselves in a place where they ask themselves: how did I get here? And why did I do this to myself? Did I do the right thing? And where do I go from here? These questions you ask yourself when you realize you have come at a cross road and you need answers to your current state. It’s not like you did not think things through. It’s simply a stage where you reassess your decisions and the path you have taken. You are not surprised one bit, when you find yourself doing the exact same thing, many others like you did. You escaped your reality that didn’t make you happy and you took refuge in chasing a mirage. That is called the sweetest escape.
“Do not be afraid to walk the path that you must go just because you cannot see the end. The path becomes clearer as you continue to go on.” ~ Tracy Allen
“There’s nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be…” ~ John Lennon
Have you ever woke up one morning and realized you are living in a fantasy? Have you ever felt that life is but a stage? Have you ever wondered: the things you have come to believe in, the people you have come to be attached to and the life you live; are all the mere thoughts and wishes you have in your mind – to make it all real? I wonder this sometimes. Continue reading
“We choose to go…not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organize the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win”
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy ~
I am inspired by this quotation. It is a good reminder for me every once in a while.
Those who know me, know very well that I live my life based on challenges. As a matter of fact, Challenge should be my middle name. My life Continue reading
What is a belief? How do we get to believe? Do we ever question those beliefs that do not make any sense? Why do we need to hold on to a belief system about almost anything in life? Do beliefs control us?? Better yet – do we BELIEVE or do we KNOW?? Do we know the difference? Continue reading
How do we measure success? Do we recognize all our successes? Why is success so important to every human being? Do we know how to capture momentum?
I can confidently say I know the meaning of success because I have lived it and continue to live it. It is very important to recognize your own success and be proud of it no matter how small it may seem. Even if no one else around you recognizes your success and even if you do not get the response you are hoping for. Feel good about yourself nonetheless, because ‘YOU DID IT!!’ Continue reading
