“Hey ‘friend,’ can I borrow a couple thousand? I ‘promise’ to pay you back next week.” Do you find it hard to say no? Do you let people abuse you financially? Do you keep letting people borrow money from you even when you know they never pay you back? I’ve had to watch my own mother suffer through that during the early years of my life so when I saw Chinkee Tan’s video, I just HAD to write about it. Never let people take advantage of your kindness.
Sabi ni W. L. Bateman “Kapag ginagawa mo palagi ang nakasanayan mong gawin, ang makukuha mo lang ay ang palagi mong nakukuha.” Alam mo kung paano tinuturo palagi ng mga life coaches na kapag nanatili ka sa trabahong ayaw mo at hindi ka nagsikap para sa kinabukasan mo, hindi ka aasenso? Ang desisyon tungkol sa pagbabago ng career ay hindi madali, pero minsan kailangan mo talaga itong gawin.
Panahon na para sa Pagbabago
Nagtrabaho ako sa isang Business-process outsourcing (BPO) na kumpanya sa nakaraang anim na taon (January 2010 hanggang January 2016) at marami akong natutunan doon. Nagkaroon ako ng napakaraming kaibigan at masayang karanasan, pero ang mga pagbabago sa opisina noong nakaraang buwan ay hindi na tama para sa akin kaya naisipan ko nang umalis.
Bakit ako nagsulat tungkol dito? Kapag ikaw mismo ay hindi pa umaalis sa trabahong hindi mo gusto, baka mabigyan kita ng lakas ng loob para maghanap ng mas-mabuting daan sa buhay.
“Kapag nagdesisyon ka, ang mundo ay gagalaw para magkatotoo ang gusto mo.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
W. L. Bateman said “If you keep doing what you’ve always done, and you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got.” You know how life coaches often seem to keep teaching people that they’d get nowhere if they simply stay in that boring office job they hate instead of working on their dreams? The decision to change careers is not an easy one to make, but sometimes, you just have to take that leap of faith to make everything fall into place.
Time for a Change
I’ve worked at the same “Business-process outsourcing (BPO)”-type company for about six years now (January 2010 to January 2016) and I’ve learned a lot from all the experiences I’ve gained. I’ve made friends and had a ton of fun, but the latest changes in the office environment didn’t sit well with me and I realized that it was finally time to go.
Why did I choose to write about it? If you’re still having doubts about leaving a job you don’t like, then maybe reading this will give you the courage to take the leap and find a better path in life.
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hindi ka ba makatulog kapag may mahalagang desisyon kang kailangang gawin?
Nag-alala ka ba ng husto tungkol sa mga bagay na hindi mo pinili?
Nagsisi ka ba dahil sa oportunidad na nawala dahil hindi ka nakapag-desisyon agad?
Ako oo, at siguro naranasan mo na rin iyon. Buti na lang, may paraan para malunas ang pag-aalala at stress, at magmumula ito sa pag-iisip mo tungkol sa bawat desisyon mo sa buhay.
Have you ever had a sleepless night stressing about an important decision you need to make?
Have you ever spent entire afternoons wondering if the choice you didn’t take would have been better?
Have you ever regretted an opportunity that passed you by because you couldn’t make a decision?
I have, and you probably experienced it too. Thankfully, there’s a way to get rid of the anxiety and stress, and it lies in how you view your choices in every decision-making moment.
