PONDER: Be your own Hero

These are not my words. It’s something I want to share and keep here so I can read it whenever I need to be reminded.

Don’t stop being who you want to be – who you’re willing to become – just because people have a painting of who you’re mapped out to be. Focus on yourself. Challenge yourself. Become the person you know you can become. Don’t let anyone make decisions for how you’re going to be or where you’ll end up. It’s not their story you’re writing. It’s yours. Let change be your own. Let who you are be a cause for the kind of change you want in your life. You have the ability to make your own choices and the capability to lead your own life.

Be your own change. Be your own savior. And most of all, Be your own Hero.

EVERYDAY: 5 Habits I need to Start


  1. SAVE – A weekly act, which starts with Php 50 and an additional Php 50 for the second one. And hopefully, learn to invest intelligently.
  2. GRATITUITY BOTTLE – A daily act of writing anything to be thankful of during the day. – may it be for a perfect hair, a Php 10,000 deposit or a day with loved ones.
  3. AVOIDING JUNK – Because it’s too easy to give in to junkfood while watching your favorite TV series. And MCDO is just beside our office – sinful fries it is.
  4. SMILE – I don’t know what second year college handed to me. I became antisocial and avoided people. This time, I’ll assume and see everything good in a person.
  5. EXERCISE – I wanted to start doing exercises daily. But to keep it safe, at least do exercise thrice in a week.

LEARN: Confirmation Bias


Confirmation bias occurs when people filter out potentially useful facts and opinions that don’t coincide with their preconceived notions. It affects perceptions and decision making in all aspects of our lives and can cause us to make less-than-optimal choices. It explains why people tend to seek out information that confirms their existing opinions and overlook or ignore information that refutes their beliefs.

Seeking out people and publications with different opinions than our own can help us overcome confirmation bias and make better-informed decisions

UITF Certificate Day.

UITF Certificate Day.

I was definitely wrong about meeting these people. I requested for a transfer of date because I have a wedding on the date that this seminar was set. I was hesitant and aloof at first but boy was I wrong. BMs were very warm and kenkoy and funny. AH was very accommodating too! I know that it is not right to compare especially since i’ve only been with them for one day and a half, but they definitely do have more pleasing and light personality.
And Hey, I’m already certified to market Unit Investment Trust Fund! Yayy! and I gained new friends: BMs, BMOs and the AH. Hihi.
I’m declaring this: I will reach my target deposit and more in a shorter period of time. Power of The secret. 🙂
