The Bestest Gift

“He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)

Jesus Christ is the true essence of Christmas. And because of Him, we have received the bestest gift: Himself. And this Christmas, what gift would you give to Jesus?

Merry, Merry Christmas, everyone! 
Happy Birthday, Jesus!

Cheers to 2012!

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. 
I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
-Neil Gaiman

Dear Advocates, say Hello to 2012 :D

It’s My Birthday and I have a Gift for You!

Today marks my twenty-seven years of wonderful existence. 9th day of August is my favorite not because it is the day that I was born but also the day that I can get anything that I wished for as if there is a genie granting all my wishes. 

I can ask my sister to buy me cake, my mom to purchase a filing cabinet, my kuya to give me a shirt and the list goes on because it is my birthday. I only wish for simple things for myself. I believe many of you do the same thing on your birthday, too. ^_^

And since, it’s my birthday, I am giving you a gift. Open it and surprise..

A gift of Financial Wisdom.

I believe this is the best gift that I can give you. The best gift that you can give to yourself. You, my readers, friends, clients and loved ones are the reason why I keep on learning more about financial planning and investments, why this blog is created. It is because of you! 

I am just a simple girl who dreams that all of us, Filipinos, will be financially successful.   All of us will do the things we love doing and to live the life that we truly desire and deserve. That's why I'd like to share with you what I have learned so far. Friends, all you have to do is to have an open mind and an open heart. 

Would you like to open my gift for you?

If yes, Cheers to our financial success!

My Life Purpose

During my training days in my first work back in 2005, our instructor asked us to choose which among the four principles in the “Fish! Philosophy” that would help improve our work skills. And I chose Be There. I didn’t think that it was the first step of determining my life purpose. I placed it in the left side of my study table (which I am still using up to now).

Some of you know or at least have an idea what companies I have worked for before. Some may asked, “San ka nanaman nagwowork ngayon?

I am not ashamed that before I become a Financial Advisor, I was once a Manager and Supervisor of quick service restaurant and international coffee shop respectively; and a Bank Products Officer handling credit cards/personal loans/deposits of an international bank and lastly, an Analyst of Collections department of a local bank. 

When I think about it now, I know all of them have purposes and reasons on its own. I am grateful and proud for all the experiences and learning that I have gained which I am utilizing in my present career. My bank-related work experiences that I have will be shared here in my blog. 

And I am thankful to our God that deep inside of me has accepted and realized the true meaning of everything--that everything is connected with each other. Most importantly, they brought me to where I am today. And I believe that won’t bring me to where I want to go. It will be a lot different. 

I stopped and smelled the roses

I don’t want to continue my life’s journey when I feel empty on the inside. So I really devoted my time to examine myself. Some of my friends whom I shared this with, they would laughed at me when I told them that I opened and browsed all my photo albums since I was born up to the present. 

For me to discover what are the things that I love doing and will make me happy including my accomplishments as a student. And also, there is one e-book titled How to know if your Dreams are God’s Dreams that really helped me discover my deepest desires and I want to share it with you. It has blessed me so much. It is written by my life, spiritual and financial mentor, Bro. Bo Sanchez. You can download the e-book by visiting his website.

Now, I am very much sure about my life purpose that every activity I have every day is an expression of it—which includes helping people to become financially independent through sharing what I have learned so far. There is also a symbol that will keep me focused every day. I hanged it underneath my clock. I love it especially I supported the “Mga Likha ni Inay” Foundation.
