Limang Aral sa Buhay mula sa Parkour Training

English Version (Click Here)

“Think you are weak, think you lack what it takes, think you will lose, think you are second class – think this way and you are doomed to mediocrity.” – David J. Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big

(Isipin mong mahina ka, na ika’y may pagkukulang, na ika’y matatalo, na ika’y second class lamang – mag-isip kang ganito at ikaw ay isusumpa sa pagiging mababang uri ng tao.)

Mga dalawang linggo na ang nakalipas, inimbita ako ng kaibigan ko sa Ninja Academy sa Las Pinas para magpractice ng parkour. Kung hindi mo alam kung ano iyon, isipin mo kung paano tumatakbo ang mga tao para umiwas sa mga obstacles o hadlang sa mga action movies. Panoorin mo saglit itong video na ito para malaman mo kung ano ang itsura noon:

Hindi lang astig na kakayahan, marami ka ring ibang matututunan sa parkour (at ibang sports) kapag ikaw ay nag-isip ng mabuti. Ito ang ilan sa mga aral na matututunan mo mula sa ilang oras ng pagsasanay:

Sampung Paraan para HINDI Makatulong (“The Ten Cannots” ni William J. H. Boetcker)

English Version (Click Here)

Bawasan ang unemployment, tumulong sa mga nangangailangan, ubusin ang kahirapan at nagugutom sa mundo. Ang mga iyon ang mga layuning karapat-dapat gawin. Kailangan nga lang nating mag-ingat dahil ang ibang solusyon ay higit na nakakasama kaysa makatulong. Basahin mo ang mga babalang ito mula sa “The Ten Cannots” ni William J. H. Boetcker.

“The Ten Cannots” (Sampung Hindi Pwede) ni William J. H. Boetcker
  • Hindi mo mapapalaganap ang kasaganaan sa pagtutol sa pagtitipid.
  • Hindi mo mapapalakas ang mahihina sa pagpapahina ng mga malalakas.
  • Hindi mo matutulungan ang mga karaniwang tao sa pagpupuna sa mga nagsikap.
  • Hindi mo mapapaasenso ang sumusuweldo sa pagpapababa sa nagbabayad ng sweldo.
  • Hindi mo matutulungan ang mahihirap sa paninira sa mga mayayaman.
  • Hindi ka makakagawa ng seguridad sa buhay gamit ang pangungutang.
  • Hindi mo matutulungan ang sangkatauhan sa pagpapalaganap ng galit sa kapwa.
  • Hindi ka makakalaya sa sakuna sa pagwawalgas ng higit sa iyong kinikita.
  • Hindi mo mabubuo ang mabuting pagkatao at lakas ng loob ng ibang tao sa paninira ng kanilang pagkukusa at tiwala sa sarili.
  • At hindi ka makakatulong sa iba sa paggawa ng mga bagay na kaya at nararapat nilang gawin ng kusa.

10 Ways to NOT Help People (William J. H. Boetcker’s “The Ten Cannots”)

Tagalog Version (Click Here)

Reduce unemployment, help the needy, eliminate poverty and world hunger. Those are all noble goals worth pursuing. We have to be careful though as some solutions do more harm than good. Take these warnings from William J. H. Boetcker’s “The Ten Cannots.”

“The Ten Cannots” by William J. H. Boetcker
  • You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
  • You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  • You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.
  • You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
  • You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  • You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.
  • You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
  • You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
  • You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence.
  • And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

Sisirain ba ng Pagmamalasakit at Pag-Asenso mo ang iyong Pamilya?

English Version (Click Here)

“Bakit kami magsisikap kung bibigyan mo pa rin naman kami ng libre?” Ihanda mo muna ang sarili mo dahil baka masakit ang aral na ito kapag ikaw umasenso na sa buhay (o aasenso pa lang). Kahit ang kayamanan at pag asenso ay magbibigay sa iyo ng kakayanang makatulong sa iba (sa kamag-anak, kaibigan, at pulubi), ang sobra sobrang pagtulong ay nakakasama. Imbis na bigyan mo sila ng pakpak para makalipad, baka pinapaasa mo lamang sila sa iyong limos.

“In general, I am opposed to giveaways and handouts. They take away initiative and responsibility from people. If people know that things can be received ‘free,’ they tend to spend their energy and skill chasing the ‘free’ things rather than using the same energy and skill to accomplish things on their own. Handouts encourage dependence rather than self-help and self-confidence.” – Muhammad Yunus, Creating a World Without Poverty

(Madalas, umaayaw ako sa pagbibigay ng limos. Inaalis nito ang pagkukusa at responsibilidad ng mga tao. Kung alam nila na ang ilang bagay ay makukuha ng ‘libre,’ madalas gagamitin nila ang lakas at galing nila sa paghahanap ng mga ‘libreng’ bagay kaysa gamitin ang parehong lakas at galing para makamit ang mga gusto nila gamit ang sarili nilang pagsisikap. Ang limos ay humihimok ng pagpapasustento kaysa sa pagtulong sa sarili at pagpapalakas ng loob.)

Will your Kindness and Financial Success destroy your family?

Tagalog Version (Click Here)

“Why should we work hard when you’ll give us free stuff anyway?” Buckle down for a moment as this might be a painful lesson if you’re already financially successful (or on the way there). Even though wealth and financial success allows you to help others (family, friends, and beggars) more easily, too much of it can backfire. Instead of giving them wings to fly, you might make them dependent on your handouts.

“In general, I am opposed to giveaways and handouts. They take away initiative and responsibility from people. If people know that things can be received ‘free,’ they tend to spend their energy and skill chasing the ‘free’ things rather than using the same energy and skill to accomplish things on their own. Handouts encourage dependence rather than self-help and self-confidence.” – Muhammad Yunus, Creating a World Without Poverty

Paano Yumaman? (Higit sa Stocks, Bonds, at Mutual Funds)

*Ang post na ito ay naglalaman ng mga affiliate links.

English Version (Click Here)

Malamang itinanong na natin sa ating sarili kung paano yumaman at naghanap tayo ng mga libro at articles para sa sagot. Malamang, nahanap natin ang “mag-ipon ng kaunting pera at mag-invest” at kung paano ang pag-invest sa mga stocks, bonds, at mutual funds sa mahabang panahon ay makakapagpayaman sa atin balang araw (itinuturo ko iyon sa iba kong articles). Ang kailangang itanong naman natin ngayon ay iyon lang ba ang dapat nating pagpuhunan?

Ituloy pa natin ang ideang ito. Ang karamihan ba ng mga mayayaman yumaman dahil doon lamang? Sabi ng isang bestselling author at researcher na nagsurvey at naginterview ng ilang-daang milyonaryo, hindi.

How can I get Rich? (Beyond just Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds)

*This post contains affiliate links.

Tagalog Version (Click Here)

We’ve all asked ourselves “how can I get rich?” and started searching books and articles for answers. Most likely, we found “save a little money every paycheck and invest it” and how investing in stocks, bonds, and mutual funds over time can someday make you wealthy (I teach that in several of my articles as well). The question now however, is that are those the only things you can or should invest on?

To take things further, did most, if not all wealthy people earn their wealth through them alone? Well, one bestselling author and researcher who surveyed and interviewed hundreds of millionaires say they didn’t.
