The Other Side of Tears

Hi friends! It's been quite some time that we haven't talk. I woke up early this morning. Actually it's just 3am and i stumbled upon an article coming from my idol "you know who...".  I bet this one will make you burst into laughter or smile at the least.  It has a title of "Learn from your Tears".  I had some "Tears" of joy as I was reading it.  So, without further adieu, let me share it with you...

Learn From Your Tears  

I was in Grade Five.

One of my teachers was young and pretty, and I thought she liked me too.  Why did she look at me every time I looked at her?

       After extensive research in the faculty room, I found out that she was only twenty-four.  Aha!  Can she wait for me until I grew older?  I was only eleven, but what was thirteen years if our fierce love would conquer all that stood between us?

       She still had problems remembering my name, but I figured this tiny problem would be solved once my name was inscribed on her wedding ring.

       But later on, I realized it was rather silly for me to fall in love with a teacher. 

Especially if she kept giving me low grades.

       That was when I met Cedz and Dina…

       Cedz was nice.  She was the brightest in our class, and she had the cutest dimples. 

And Dina giggled a lot, and had the longest eyelashes in the world.

       Now the big question: Whom should I marry?  Dimples or lashes?

       Well, my problem was finally solved when I met Tintin.

       Oh yes, I was wrong the last time.  I was young then.  Those were childish crushes.  But now, this was true love.  I was fifteen now.  Tintin and I were totally meant for each other.  How did I know?  I loved the way she covered her mouth when she laughed…

       Through the years, I’ve had a thousand other crushes with other dimples, lashes, braces, smiles, giggles, hair-clips, winks, laughs, scents, teeth…

       I had my first girlfriend at 17.

       We broke up, made up, broke up again, made up again…
Please repeat sequence 3000 times.

       (Note: That’s why I’m one of those freaks that encourage young people to have boyfriends or girlfriends only after their college graduation.  Their time and energy can be spent in more life-expanding activities than breaking up and making up for 3000 times.)

I courted another young woman when I was 25—and waited for her yes.

I gave her roses, chocolates, and serenaded her with love songs.  I really had a super-duper fantastic time.  Except for one slight tiny problem: She didn’t like me.
On that fateful night when she finally told me in the nicest, sweetest, most loving way, “Bo, get out of my life,” I cried buckets of tears.

       But I wondered, “What is the lesson here?  Can my tears be used for good?”

Because of the water shortage, I used my bucket of tears to flush the toilet.

The waiting continued—and it was excruciating.

What did God want me to do with my life?

At the age of 28, I met a beautiful young woman at my office—applying for work.

But at that time, I was seriously considering becoming a priest—or becoming a celibate layman—waiting for God’s go signal.
So I brushed romantic thoughts aside and decided to look at her the way I looked at a piece of furniture.  So to me, she was one of the monobloc chairs in the office.

This strategy worked. 

But sometimes, I found myself secretly gazing at this monobloc chair for no apparent reason.

I gave myself two years to discern if celibacy was my call.  So no dating.  No romantic actuations.   No girlfriends. 

At age 30, I went to a retreat on a mountaintop with no one else but God, my Bible, and a wise Jesuit priest, to finally decide what I wanted to do with my life.

One week later, I went down from the mountain with a mandate from the Almighty to get married.

And so I remembered that lovely monobloc chair in the office.

So I courted her.

I begged.  I pleaded.  I stalked her like a predator.  

And when all that didn’t work, I quietly said,  “I’m your boss. I’ll fire you if you don’t agree to my proposal.”  She called my bluff and submitted her resignation papers the next day.  In desperation, I closed my eyes and stretched my hands towards her and shouted, “IN JESUS NAME, you will fall in love with me!  Shalalalala….”

Okay, that’s not how it exactly happened either.

The important thing is that at age 32, I married her—and it’s been an amazing journey.

       Yes, life is a journey with lots and lots and lots of waiting.
And it seems as if nothing is happening right now.
We need to enjoy that journey—to relish, taste, celebrate, and breathe in all the waiting, all the detours, all the craziness, all the misfires and failures and bruises.
And I have also realized that everything that happens in life are lessons.

In other words, put your bucket of tears to good use.

No, I wasn’t serious about flushing the toilet.

Use your tears to make you more mature.  Stronger. Wiser.

       Always ask yourself the question, “What is this experience teaching me?”

       Friends, learn all you can.

       May your dreams come true,

       Bo Sanchez

Hi there.  My Idol Bro. Bo, never fails to inspire me.  He encourages us to BE GRATEFUL IN TIMES OF TROUBLE... Do you believe that?  That's kinda weird right? That was my initial reaction when I glanced at his article.  But as I read further, I found out that it has biblical truth in it  and realized also that.... IT IS DURING TROUBLESOME TIMES, the we GROW THE MOST.  I also learned that we cannot get away with troubles.  God allows it because He Wants us to Grow.  We cannot get away with it.  It's a part of life.  Hmmn..Trouble could make a NICE t-shirt slogan - "TROUBLE:  Get Used to It."  When troubles come our way, there are two things that we can do:  We can Grumble or We can be Thankful.  Did I hear you said "Why?"   Here's why:

      Once upon a time, in one of the islands of the Philippines, there was a young tree. It was the only tree in that island. 
This lovely tree had long branches with leaves too many to count.
       It was a happy tree. It liked looking at the green plains below and the blue sea surrounding the island.
       But one day, the tree noticed that one of its leaves was turning brown. What was going on? This was the first time it happened. It never experienced it before. The tree began to panic.
Soon, more leaves became brown.
And then the impossible happened: One brown leaf snapped off its twig and fell to the ground.
The horrors!
Soon, more leaves fell. He counted them. Gasp! He couldn’t believe it. In one day, 6 leaves fell off from his branches. The next day, another 9 fell. The day after that, 12 more fell. On and on they kept falling.
He was losing so many leaves each day, he blurted out, “I’m dying!”   Everyday, with great anxiety, he stared on the growing mound of brown leaves gathering around His roots. 
He began to lose hope and wanted to end his life.
       That was when a bird flew by…
Three Messages From The Bird
The feathered creature perched onto one of the tree’s branches. The bird asked, “What’s wrong? Why are you so sad?”
       The tree said, “I’m dying.”
“Why do you say that?” the bird asked.
“I’m losing all my leaves! I’ve lost 94 already…”
        The bird was taken aback. “You don’t know do you?” He looked around and realized why. “You haven’t seen another tree in your life. You’re all alone here. My dear friend, what you’re experiencing is something that every other tree in the world experiences.”
The bird smiled and said, “ I want to give you three messages today.”
“I’m listening,” the tree answered.
1) More Blessings Than Problems
“First, you say you’ve already lost 94 leaves. You count the number of leaves that you’ve lost. Count now the number of leaves that are still on your branches…”
The tree went about counting. “1, 2, 3, 4….” When he reached 300, he said, “I can’t count them. I have too many leaves!” The tree wasn’t crying anymore.
“Then you’re learning a very important truth. Remember that you’ll always have more blessings than problems. Problems seem more because you count them, you measure them, and you analyze them everyday. But when you count your blessings, you’ll realize that your blessings will outnumber your problems. Always!”
May I interrupt this story by another story?
I was reading about Roger Crawford. When he was born, he had a genetic defect. He was born without two hands and without a left leg. 
But despite his disability, he became a professional Tennis player in America. He became a champion?
How could he play Tennis without two hands and a left leg? I don’t know. But he did.
You see, Roger never complained, “Lord, why don’t I have hands and a left leg?” Instead, he said, “Lord, thank you for what I have. I have arms and I have one leg. What will you do with what I have?”
Roger didn’t bother counting the leaves that fell off his branches. He celebrated the many leaves that remained in his branches.
Let’s go back to my story…
2) More Space For New Blessings
The bird said, “Here’s my second message. I want you to look at your branches. Specifically, at the empty space where your leaves fell from. Do you see them?”
“Are they really empty.”
“Yes, they’re empty. A leaf was there before…”
“Look closer,” said the bird, “because it’s not really empty…”
That was when the tree said, “Well, I see tiny leaves sprouting in the same place where my old leaves fell from.”
The bird nodded, “If your old leaves didn’t fall, there wouldn’t have been space for new leaves to sprout in your branches. If you want better things to happen in your life, some older things will have to go first.”
“I now understand,” the tree smiled.
Let me interrupt this story again and tell you that this is how life works.
Thank God for empty spaces in your life.
Perhaps a relationship ended this year. Perhaps a boyfriend left you. Thank God and believe that someone new, someone better, will be walking into your life.
Perhaps you lost your job this year. Perhaps your company folded up. Perhaps you were retrenched. Thank God and believe that you’ll get a better job and company very soon!
I remember two women whose husbands left them. Both of their husbands found another woman and walked out of their lives.
       Both were devastated.
       But both had a very different attitude. One followed the grumbling path and the other followed the grateful path.
       One woman cried, “My husband left me. My life is now over.”
       But the other woman said, “My husband left me. My life is just beginning…”
       Like this woman, don’t ever give up. Don’t say, “My life is over.” Say instead, “My life is about to begin.” Because new growth happens only if there are empty spaces in your life.
3) More Nourishment From Your Growth
The bird chirped, “And now for my last message. Do you notice what happens to your brown leaves?” the bird asked.
“They rot,” the tree shrugged, looking at the mound of brown leaves around its roots.
“Yes they do, but for a purpose,” said the bird, “because in due time, these rotting leaves will become part of the soil. These leaves will enrich you. Your roots will drink their nourishment. Causing you to grow and sprout more leaves…”
You Need Trouble To Grow
“Bo, I can’t be grateful for 2011. This was the year my husband left me.”
Or “This was the year our house burned down.”
Or “This was the year I learned I had cancer.”
Or “This was the year my father died.”
I understand. But the Bible says, Give thanks in all circumstances. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Yesterday, I was looking back at the year that passed.
I realized something very important. I realized that I grew the most not during the times when everything was smooth. Or the times when everything was going my way. I realized that I grew the most during the times when there was intense trouble. Intense pain. I grew the most when I was attacked from all directions and I couldn’t breathe anymore.
That’s when God stretched me.
I have one word for you about trouble: Get used to it.
Because trouble is the birthplace for your greatest growth.
       Be grateful for the blessings behind your trials.

NOW YOU KNOW WHY.  And perhaps, you too could start loving troubles just like me.  :)   See you next blog... Ciao.....

Bro Bo is also my Financial Mentor

Hi there, I'm excited to tell you that I joined Bro. Bo's Truly Rich Club.  It's all about taking charge of your financial future and receiving  no nonsense tips about financial literacy.  The bonus materials such as e-books and audio books are awesome.  It's truly value for money.  Speaking of Tips, let me share to a taste of Bro. Bo's Truly Rich Club:

The Secret Of Retiring Rich:

 “Money Cost Averaging”
             Just a short letter from me today.
          Let me tell you a story.
One day last year, I talked to my 80+ employees.
          From managers to janitors.
          I loved it.  
Because I don’t see them often.  
You see, I’m a lazy boss. More importantly, I also have a fantastic team of leaders in the office.  So I get out of their way as much as I can.
 Obviously, my staff was wondering why I was meeting them.
            I took the microphone and announced, “I’m here to make sure that when you retire, you retire as multi-millionaires.”
            You should have seen their faces.   Some were probably thinking if someone spiked my breakfast with shabu.
            For the whole morning, I taught them how to invest in the Stock Market.
            Janitors. Messengers. Clerks. Managers. Everyone.
            I also was able to answer their questions.
  I’m sharing some of my answers to you below.
  Because they might be your questions too.
Question: “My father lost money in the Stocks. How can I be sure I won’t lose my money too?”
Bo: Your father is normal. Statistics say that 85% of people lose their money in the Stock Market. Because they were trading. Most likely, your father was trading. But today, I’m not talking about trading the Stock Market. Trading means buying and selling stocks constantly, trying to “time” the market. That should be left to experts. I’m talking about long-term investing. Ten or twenty years. This is the right away of investing, and I’ll teach you how to do that.
Question: “Will my Stocks grow at 20% every year?”
Bo: No, it won’t.  For example: One year, your investments will fall by 20%.   The following year, it will rise by 30%. The next year, it falls by 10%. And so on. It’ll be a roller coaster ride. But if you put tiny amounts of money every month over a ten or twenty year period, the average growth will most likely be 20% per year IF—and that’s a big IF—you follow the simple money-cost-averaging strategy I’ll teach you.
Question: “Is that realistic? 20% average growth?”
Bo: Stock Market Analysts didn’t pull this figure out of thin air. They base this projected growth on past history. They backtracked 20 years ago. This is what they found out: If a person invested small amounts of money every month in top-notch, solid, great companies, the average yearly growth was 20%. That’s the power of money-cost-averaging.
Question: “What is money-cost-averaging again?”
Bo: Investing small amounts of money each month over a period of ten to twenty years.   Only in great companies.  Money-cost-averaging is the secret of the wealthy.
Question: “You tell me to invest in great companies. But I’m not an expert. I don’t know if a company is great or not.”
Bo: I’ll tell you what these great companies are.   Stock Market Analysts study all the companies in the Stock Market. That’s all they do the whole day. Through my TrulyRichClub, I’ll give you the current Stocks that I invest in.
Question: “But don’t great companies also go bankrupt?”
Bo: Rarely, yes.   But that’s why analysts watch these companies like a hawk.   If you’re a member of my TrulyRichClub, I’ll warn you if we see something fishy.   Through my Stocks Update newsletter, I’ll tell you if you need to stop investing in a particular company, sell your shares there, and invest in another company.
A Company Of Multi-Millionaires
After my talk, it was pretty noisy.
Everyone was talking, asking questions, and filling out application forms.
My 80+ employees were filling out their Citiseconline application forms, asking help from one another.  (Note: Citiseconline is our preferred online broker. They have a “missionary” goal of helping “smaller” people learn to invest.)
I also instructed Weng, my Chief Accountant, to offer the entire staff “automatic salary deduction” each month—so they won’t forget.   This is voluntary of course. But many took the offer.
I thank God I’m the boss. I can do things like this.
I told them, “When you retire from this company, you’ll get the usual retirement pay employees get. But don’t depend on it. Because it’s very small. It won’t last. But if you invest the way I’m telling you to invest, you’re creating your very own Retirement Fund. Even if you just invest P2500 a month, you may end up having P5M in 20 years.”
            That day, my 80+ employees went back to their work happy. Very happy.
            Because they’re taking charge of their financial future.
            That was last year.
            After one year, most of them are doing very well in their investments.
            My drivers. My messengers. My janitors. My clerks. It’s amazing.
            Today, when I enter the office, I see a happy bunch of people.
I notice a bright hope in people’s eyes.
            Now here’s my question: Are you ready to have the same hope in your eyes too?
            I pray so.

What's your expertise?

 "Times are really hard lately in terms of cost of living and it seems that things are getting more difficult day by day.."

That's from what I've been hearing from my colleagues... including myself sometimes... :D I'm just curious... I'd like to ask you today what field are you expert in?.. or let me rephrase that. would you want to be known as "Problems Expert?"... that sounds good, right? Before you answer that, let me share to you what my idol (Bro. Bo) has to say about it:

"The extraordinary person is someone who can see big blessings within small blessings."

Let me tell you a story I love sharing to people.

Do You Want Big Money?
Start With Small Money

Early last year, I taught my maids to invest in the Stock Market. They started by saving P2000 a month.
A few friends laughed at me. Someone asked me, “What can happen with their P2000 a month? That’s so small.”
But that’s why people remain poor. They don’t see the big money in the small money.
Today, one of my maids has P72,286 in her Stock Market account. The other one has P88,069 in her account. These amounts may mean nothing to you, but to them, they feel very rich.
They started with a small amount. Just P2000 a month. But when they discovered how investing worked, they were hooked. So when I gave them a raise or gave them a bonus, they didn’t spend it. They invested it.
Here’s my fearless forecast: I have no doubt that in less than 10 years, my maids will be millionaires.
Huwag mo smallin ang maliit na blessing. Lalaki rin yan!
My point? Unless you see the big blessings in the small blessings, you’ll never receive the big blessings. Because every small blessing has a big blessing waiting to come out

Be A Blessing Expert

My friend is a bird expert.
He can spot a bird from far away, tell you its breed, its lineage, its migratory timetable… (I told him I only know 2 kinds of birds. Small bird and Big Bird. Yes, the one who lives in Sesame Street.)
I have another friend who is a plant expert.
She can spot a plant a mile away, and tell you its scent, and its scientific name. She won’t just say, “Sampaguita”. She’ll say, “Sampaguitatious Beinte Pesosis” or something like that.
I have another friend who is a Star expert.
Not the astronomical stars. But the showbiz stars. She can spot an artista (actress) a mile away. When she does, she’ll tell you the star’s latest movie, latest song, latest boyfriend, latest liposuction treatment…
Me? I’m a Blessing Expert.
I can spot a blessing a mile away. I know a blessing’s shape, smell, color, sound… Because of this, I see blessings everywhere.
Blessing Experts are happy people.

But I know people who are Problem Experts.
Believe me, you don’t want to hang out with them. To them, everything is a problem. Including you. They’re miserable people and they’ll make everyone else miserable.

When you’re a Blessing Expert, you see more blessings. And thus, you receive more blessings.
Athletes call this the power of visualization.


Now, let me ask you again....  would you still want to be called "Problem Experts?"

See you next blog.. :)

Are you Selfish or Selfless?

“Me First!”

       Let me tell you a story.
One day, while Mommy was cooking pancakes, her two small boys were fighting over who would eat the first pancake Mommy would cook.
       Both of them said, “Me first! Me first!”
       Their mother shook her head and said, “Boys, boys, if Jesus were here, he would say, ‘Mommy, let my brother eat the pancake first.’
       Paolo, the 5-year old, told his younger brother, “Michael, you be Jesus.”

The above story really amazed me because that is exactly what is happening most of time in our daily journey of life.  Many of us are like little Paolo.  It was kinda "cute" scenario for me because honestly, I can relate to the story.  However, when I read the story below.. I had experienced a different feeling.  It made me think a little more deeply....  Here's it is:

What Happens When You Don’t Care

A dear friend sent this story to me.
It’s such a powerful tale that mirrors reality so well.

One day, a mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package.  “What food might this contain?”  The mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.
       Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed this warning: “There is a mousetrap in the house!  There is a mousetrap in the house!”
The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.” 
The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house!  There is a mousetrap in the house!”
       The pig sympathized, but said, “I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it
but pray.  Be assured you are in my prayers.”
       The mouse turned to the cow and said, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”
The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”
So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap. Alone. . .
That very night a sound was heard throughout the house – the sound Of a mousetrap catching its prey.
       The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught.  In the darkness, she did not see it.  It was a venomous snake whose tail was caught in the trap. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital. When she returned home she still had a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup. So the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient: Chicken! 
But his wife’s sickness continued.  Friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock.  To feed them, the farmer butchered (who else?) the pig.
But, alas, the farmer’s wife did not get well… She died.
        So many people came for her funeral that the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them for the funeral luncheon.
And the mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.
       So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and you think it doesn’t concern you, remember–When one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.
Each of us is a vital thread in another person’s tapestry. Our lives are woven together for a reason.

 So there you have it, guys..  Do you wanna be Selfish or Selfless? 
See you next blog. :)

How do you respond to Fire (Life's Difficulties)?

One day, a young woman came to her grandfather and cried on his shoulder. She told him of her many problems. She felt so overwhelmed by them. It seemed like everything in her life was going wrong.

       After she wept many tears, the old man told her, “Let’s go to the kitchen. I have something to show you.”

       In the kitchen, the grandfather prepared three pots of water on the cooking range. On the first pot, he placed carrots.   On the second pot, he placed eggs. On the third pot, he placed coffee beans. And he lit the fire beneath each of them.

       For twenty minutes, they sat in silence as the fire heated the pots. After twenty minutes, the grandfather said, “If you notice, the fire underneath the pots are the same. Same heat. Same temperature. Yet you’ll notice how different things react to the fire.”

       He fished out the carrots and placed it in a bowl. He made his granddaughter touch it. 

“It’s soft,” she said.

       He got an egg, broke it, and gave it to her. 

“Hard boiled,” she said.

       Finally, he opened the coffee pot—its fragrance filling the room. He poured a cup for her. She took a sip.

       “That’s nice,” she said, “thanks, grandpa. But what does this all mean?”

       He said, “Child, you’re going through fire. You’re going through trials. Everybody does. But how are you reacting? Are you like the carrot who thought it was hard and strong, but when the fire came, it became weak and lost all its strength? Or are you like the egg that had a malleable spirit and a tender heart, but when trials came, hardened its heart? Or are you like the coffee bean? The fire released its flavor and aroma. Your trials can release your gifts and dreams. Your trials can set you free. So tell me, are you a carrot, an egg, or coffee beans?”

Your Trials Can Set You Free

       Did your boyfriend leave you for another girl? You’re now free to find a better man who’ll be faithful to you.

       Were you laid off at work? You’re now free to get a better job at a better company or become an entrepreneur.

       Are you sick right now? This is a wake up call. Your body is telling you, “It’s high time to care for me.” You’re now free to become the healthiest person you can become.

When Faced with trials, BE LIKE THE COFFEE BEANS that spread its wonderful flavor and  aroma in the midst of the heat of Life's DIFFICULTIES... and that includes your LOVELIFE also..:)

See you next blog.

Serve to Prosper

        ".. if you want to prosper, you need to BELIEVE that you can prosper. But what is faith without works? The Bible says it’s dead. So if you want to prosper, you need to express your faith through action.
       And for me, action is SERVICE..."

     To borrow the lines of one of the Pilipinas Got Talent panel of judges, I'd say: "That's a big YES for me!"  God loves us so much that he has given us all the things we need in order to prosper and one of them is SERVICE. .Everyone has a chance to prosper by serving others.  No one is too poor to say that he cannot serve other people. We need not spend a single dime in order to do so.   Service is like a skill.  The more we serve, the better we become in serving, then we'll have lots of satisfied people we've serve and no need to say what happens next... you know what's next if service and satisfaction meets.... it's EXCELLENCE which will lead you to PROSPERITY.  That is the very reason why BIG CORPORATION strives for EXCELLENCE...  They demand excellence for every employee because they know that excellence brings satisfied customers and satisfied customers will translate eventually to MORE MONEY coming in for the company.  And that my friend is called PROSPERITY...

       The richest people in the world are businessmen.  Let's take the case of Bill Gates, Henry Ford, John Gokongwei, Henry Sy and many others.  They have become rich because they serve people everyday - Millions of People!!!  Every "Rugs to Riches" story of successful people in this planet,  involves one common element. That is they have become rich because they SERVE people one way or the other.

Same goes true with employees.  According to Bro. Bo, employees need to think like Entreprenueurs wherein they should strive to attain Excellence thru quality service to customers.  Normally excellent employees got promoted.  Do not worry if the boss does not recognize you for all your efforts.  Keep practicing Excellence (service with quality) and one day, your skills will be developed.  If not your current boss, other people will hear about your great skill and will want to pay for huge amount of  money in exchange for your SERVICE - and that's what you call - PROSPERITY.

There you have it.  LET'S SERVE OTHER PEOPLE IF WE WANT TO PROSPER IN LIFE.  God will always find a way to bless us in return if we do that constantly.
