Pay It Forward

I was checking on my facebook friends' favorite movies and came across with the movie Pay It Forward so I checked the reviews, downloaded it and finally watched it.

In Pay It Forward, a 7th grade teacher gives his students a class project. And that is to "think of an idea to change our world and put it into action."

Lessons From Trees

Excerpts from an article entitled “All I Need To Know About Life I Learned From Trees” by an unknown author which gives some wonderful lessons:

• It’s important to have roots.

• In today’s complex world, it pays to branch out.

• If you really believe in something, don’t be afraid to go out on a limb.

• Be flexible so you don’t break when a harsh wind blows.

• Sometimes you have to shed your old bark in order to grow.

The 40+ Formula

Excerpts from the book Success Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires by Brian Tracy.

This formula says that you work 40 hours per week for survival. Everything over 40 hours is for success. If you only work 40 hours, all you will ever do is survive. You'll never get ahead. You'll never be a big financial success. You will always  be mediocre if you just work the basic 40-hour week.

P3.0 Million, The Price of A Child

This is just too good not to pass on to all. Something absolutely positive for a change. I have heard recently over the radio the breakdown of the cost of raising a child, and I've realized the rewards in this way.

It's nice. The RJ told that the government recently calculated the cost of raising a child from birth to 18 and came up with P3.0 Million for a middle income family. Talk about sticker shock! That doesn't even touch college tuition. But P3.0 Million isn't so bad if you break it down.

It translates into an average of:
     -  P166,666.67 a year
     -  P13,888.89 a month
     -  P3,472.22 a week
     -  that's a mere P496.03 a day!
     -  just over P20 an hour.

I Believe

I believe that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and, you must forgive them for that.

I believe that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I believe that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I am rich and wealthy, I am happy, I am healthy, I am full of energy. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
