Kamusta kayong lahat?
Sorry at hindi ako nakapagbigay ng column ko last week. Sobrang busy. Hindi talaga. Lima ang speaking engagement ko, at na overwhelm na ako sa pressure sa pag-prepare. At ayun nagkulang na ang oras. Pasensya na po sa mga readers ng ating column.
Pero sana you were able to think about what I wrote about Success Mindsets two weeks ago.
My speaking engagements last week were mostly about having the right mindset. My audiences were mostly employees and single working professionals. Kagaya siguro ninyo.
What I shared with them was this:
Kailangan natin bantayan ang ating pag-iisip. Dahil whatever we think about runs our life.
Sabi ng Biblia,
“Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.”
Proverbs 4:23 (NCV)
Sa tagalog, “Ingatan ang iyong iniisip, dahil ang iyong pag-iisip ang siyang magtatakbo ng iyong buhay.”
Alam mo ba ang law of “sowing and reaping”? Simple lang ito. It says, kung ano ang iyong itinanim ‘yan ang iyong aanh in. What you have planted, that you will harvest. So kung nag tanim kayo ng monggo, ang iyong aanhin ay…. Manga? Hindi ah! Monggo pa rin, hindi ba?
“Huwag ninyong akalaing madadaya ninyo ang Diyos. Kung ano ang itinanim ng tao, iyon din ang kanyang aanihin. Ang sumusunod sa nasa ng kanyang laman ay mag-aani ng kapahamakan. Ngunit ang sumusunod naman sa Espiritu ay mag-aani ng buhay na walang hanggan.” Mga Taga-Galatia 6:7-8 (Galatians 6:7-8)
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life” (Galatians 6:7-8).
“A man reaps what he sows.”
“Kung ano ang itinanim ng tao, iyon din ang kanyang aanihin.”
So if you plant negative thoughts in your mind, you will reap a negative life. Plant positive thoughts in your mind, you will reap a positive life.
Sabi ni Apostle Paul:
“Bilang pagtatapos, mga kapatid, dapat maging laman ng inyong isip ang mga bagay na karapat-dapat at kapuri-puri: mga bagay na totoo, marangal, matuwid, malinis, kaibig-ibig at kagalang-galang.” Taga-Filipos 4:8
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” –
Philippians 4:8 NIV
Wala ka bang trabaho?
Minsan ito ay dahil sa ating pag-iisip. Basahin natin ang sabi ng isang awtor at farmer-entrepreneur na si, Dodong Cacanando. (Bagama’t nasa ingles, basahin pa rin para maka-practise na rin tayo).
“Recently, the Philippine Star reported that there are 3 million jobless Filipinos in the country today. This number is alarming because the more jobless people we have, the more chances of unrest. But what bothered me more about this data is the fact that I have a lot of business friends who would often complain about how difficult it is to look for people to help them in their businesses. In addition, I am ‘disturbed’ because I see a lot of uncultivated farm lands all over the country. So I now wonder, do we really lack millions of jobs? Or do we just have a wrong appreciation of the opportunities around us?
The dictionary defines ‘job’ as the work we do to earn money in order to provide for our needs. To most Filipinos, a job means employment. While more and more have become entrepreneurs, employment is the primary choice for most of us. But what did I mean when I said we may have a wrong appreciation of the opportunities around us?
In one of our Semilya trainings around 5 years ago, there was a 24-year old boy who joined our 2-month long program. He joined because he said he had nothing to do. He said he could not land a job ever since he graduated from college 2 years back.
