Gotchar attention, didn’t I?
I didn’t mean to write that on purpose. I am just beaming with positive energy at the moment and I couldn’t get my fingers to type the expression correctly.
I love this saying. I used to hear that from Ogie Diaz on their morning show day in and day out and it made me smile every time because it did make sense, and it still does!
“Every gising is a blessing!” only means “Every waking day is a blessing!“.
There aren’t a lot of good things happening in the world today as Toni’s husband, Paul said in one of her interviews (particularly Bianca’s PBT show), “Life has it’s way of putting you down“.
Yesterday, I wasn’t in a very good position as I couldn’t really get to one of my targets ever since I started working for this current company, and it’s hard especially since I’m letting myself and those around me down.
What’s tougher is that some of those I count on in times like this, whom I have also constantly supported in their lowest points couldn’t do the same for me. It hurt me a lot, although I have to understand that they too are going through a lot.
Anyway, I went home all down and mad as bad vibes were apparently unleashed all in one day and that day was yesterday.
I woke up not feeling any better. I was looking for a way to turn things around and in prayer, I have found my solace. Thank God. -> always!
I am also grateful for Bianca Gonzalez-Intal‘s “Paano Ba ‘To?!“, which is sort of a mini online show to help those in need of solicited advice. Sort of like the Joe the Mango show of our times, except that this one goes beyond love problems.
If you have seen her series of interviews with these amazing people, good on ya! If not, you HAVE to!
So I have seen most if not all of her PBT videos, but the first and the topic I could relate to the most was this:
So, how to deal with difficult or toxic people as per Piolo Pascual himself? Putting yourself in the person’s shoes, do the sandwich technique, pray for the person and forget about pride raw. How to do all those things po?
Another favorite from this series is her interview with Anthony Pangilinan:
I loved this because I love learning from counselors, career advisers, life coaches etc. They have all these techniques that are applicable to businesses and life in general.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned from this 7-minute interview is “Never separate the word purpose from opportunity” which Anthony quoted from Peter Drucker, the father of management. Any opportunity that isn’t connected with your purpose is considered a DISTRACTION. Cool eh?
and I know I should also include her interview with Karen Davila but I’m way past my fresh grad years and I could relate more to the concern of Mr. Kulang sa Kumpiyansa, a.k.a her interview with Iza Calzado.
I like her tips which I really have figured out before, but I just don’t always do:
- Always bring something to the table and must keep up with the times. – contribute to the conversation
- Everyone makes mistakes. – this one I have not really figured out yet, but thanks to Iza for reminding us.
So that’s it! I guess you could tell by my PBT choices how old I am, with the concerns I am focusing more on. Haha!
Oh, this just in, I also love her interview with Atom Araullo, a.k.a. the eternal question: Practical Job or Dream Job?
And his advice? I know I have heard this one before, ehem ehem paging NIN!!
“Have a stable job to support your passion!” and lots of other things like “finding your passion in the job that you have” –which may not be as applicable to my line of work, but what the heck, it’s still pretty true.
P.S. this just made me realize, I’m still lucky I have a day job to support my passion and for me to be able to still do what I love on the side. 🙂
