January is both inspiring and disheartening. As people celebrate the beginning of a new year by trying new and better habits, most won’t have the discipline and inspiration to continue those positive changes. Others still don’t know what they want to do during the year. While we’ll each have a different idea on what’s the best new year’s resolution for us, these are 10 things that you might want to add this year. You don’t need to do them all at once, but as these are the classic tips of most self-improvement literature, you might want to give them a shot.
Ako, pangarap kong magkaroon ng masaganang bahay, malaking kita, kotse at motorsiklo, maging kilala dahil sa aking mga gawa (mga isinulat kong articles dito at mga librong isusulat ko), magkaroon ng mabuti at mapagmahal na pamilyang kayang makipag-sparring sa akin, maging dalubhasa at malakas para makapagsparring kasama ang aking pamilya, makapagpaasenso ng napakaraming tao, mag-iwan ng mabuting legacy, at marami pang iba. Sa ngayon, wala pa ako ng kahit alin doon (ngayong Dec. 26, 2016).
Gaya ng karamihan, pangarap kong maging “successful.” Malamang, may ganoon ka ring pangarap (bukod sa “martial arts at makipag-sparring sa pamilya”), pero kagaya ko, malamang hindi mo pa nakakamit ang lahat ng gusto mo. Ano ang kailangan nating gawin para makamit ang mga gusto natin? Napakaraming paraan para makamit ang tagumpay sa buhay, pero may isang NAPAKAHALAGANG simula para sa lahat ng ito. Kailangan alalahanin natin ito at alamin kung paano natin ito magagamit.
Personally, I want a nice house, a huge income, a car and a motorcycle, be famous for my works (my articles here and all the books I will soon write), have a nice and loving family who are skilled enough to spar with me, be skilled and healthy enough to spar on even terms with my family, enrich lives and leave a legacy, and more. So far, I have NONE of those (as of Dec. 26, 2016).
Like most people, I dream of becoming “successful.” You probably have similar dreams as I do (except for the whole “martial arts and sparring with the family” part), but like me, you likely don’t have everything you desire as of now. So what should we do to earn what we want? There are many ways to be successful in life, but there is one CRUCIAL starting point for all of them. We need to remember what that is and learn to use it to our advantage.
Sa pagtanda natin, natutunan natin na ang ilang masamang bisyo o bad habits ay nagdadala ng kasamaang palad at kailangan natin silang iwasan kahit anong mangyari. Natutunan natin na ang paninigarilyo ay pwedeng magbigay ng cancer, na ang sedentary lifestyle o pamumuhay na hindi aktibo at pagkain ng hindi masustansyang pagkain ay nagdudulot ng napakaraming sakit, at ang hindi mabuting paghawak ng pera ay nagdudulot ng problema sa pera. Bukod pa doon, may isa pang psychological habit na kasing sama nila. Kung nasanay kang magreklamo sa mga problema at abala sa bawat pagkakataon, baka patungo ka sa pagkabigo. Eto ang tatlong malaking dahilan kung bakit kailangan mong itigil ang bisyo ng pagrereklamo!
As we grew up, we learned that certain bad habits can bring disaster and that we should avoid them at all costs. We learned that smoking can cause cancer, that leading a sedentary lifestyle and eating unhealthy food brings all sorts of diseases, and that bad financial habits lead to money problems. Aside from those, there is one psychological habit that’s just as horrible. If you have a habit of complaining about problems and inconveniences every change you get, you could be setting yourself up for failure. Here are three BIG reasons why you should stop complaining as soon as possible!
