Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

>>Yes, Filipinos can achieve a quality life. Everyone of us are endowed with God given talents, aside from that He gve us the ability to think and the capability to do things. If we are going to use that gift we can have a quality life. We have different oppurtunities to have a better or quality life. We might say that we don't have that good education but look at others who did not achieve high education but are now famous in their chosen fields and are being looked at as successful people. This people have "sipag at tiyaga" and that is one of the requirements to have a better life. Aside from that, is they don't give up easily they try until they reach their goals..they use their heads and apply their hearts and centered God in their lives. I can say problems in life, studies, finances...etc...hinders us from growing us a person because we feel down and we don't want to do things anymore because problems will rise from the problems already there. Its as if there are no more solutions for it. We are encouraged to be dependent on other people whom we know will help us or even the one who will solve the problem..we are not given the chance to use our minds in finding the solution..we are not maturing..

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven yes, the filipinos achieve quality life by having a faith in our God and by working hard on their jobs and doing good things. I think that having a quality life means that you live a happy life, you do not have foes but friends who supports you; and your family who are always there for you no matter what. Most Filipinos are Catholics and being a catholic, we are always putting God as the first thing that is important. We always pray to him to say thank you for all the blessing that He gave us and to say sorry for all the sins that we had done. Filipinos are hardworking to achieve what they want in life or their goals in life. I think that the things that hinder the growth of a person is the unfaithfulness to God. Sometimes when people are experiencing hardships they tend to question God ; why He is permitting it to happen?; why He is not helping me? But for me everything that we experience in life is the will of God. I can say that we are growing as a person when you are learning from your mistakes and try not to do it again and always have faith in God. Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

...yes Filipinos can achieve a quality life because Filipinos have different "diskarte" when it comes to surviving. We have different ways to achieve a quality life. Education is one of the best ways we can do because earning a degree can help us find a better jobs in the future which will help us to achieve a quality life. We can also use our talents and skills in making money. Money is one of the most important thing if we want to have a quality life because we need money to purchase our basic needs.For me the reasons that hinder our growth as a person is because sometimes we doesn't have enough courage to face the real world and we are afraid to try something new that can help us gain more knowledge and skills. We should learn how to face the real world and work hard to achieve a quality life.

..Well, in my own opinion I believe that Filipinos can achieve quality life because Filipino can progress in different manners/ways. We can achieve it through the help of our very own foundation which is God followed by building our destiny and picking up the life that we want to. As the saying says “Nasa Diyos ang awa nasa tao ang gawa” and Kapag gusto maraming paraan, kapag ayaw maraming dahilan.” so it only means that the quality of life that all of us wishes to have is in our hands. It is a matter of choice if we want to live life too its fullest with quality life. We decide for ourselves and if we really want to have a better and quality life we should do something. We may be having a lot of conflicts that hinders us to achieve the quality of life that we are longing for but God is always there to help us and we should just believe in Him. Most of us do have their own initiative to elevate their existence.
..For me we should be the one who is controlling ourselves but most of the time we let other people control our lives and that is one of the hindrance of our growth as a person. We become incapable of doing things because we are afraid of taking risks and that’s why some people are just being manipulated by other. Other factor is the poverty and lack of education of a person. Some often complain that education is only for the person who can afford it but we don’t even realize that education is not about money, you should have the determination and guts to lift up yourself and achieve what you want to. It’s about setting up your goals to achieve everything step by step.
..All in all I can only say that we Filipinos can really achieve the quality life we are wishing for if it’s in our will and through the help of God nothing is impossible.
Very Happy

Yes, Filipino can achieve quality life. If we just get up and empower ourselves by skill through education. Education converts the mind into a living fountain. It occurs both in and outside the classroom, and provides the means to learn how to live. Educations thus liberating and a revolutionary force that last a lifetime.It forms character , increases the strength of mind , expands the intellect , help promote harmonious relationships between an individual and the environment.

Formation is in the heart of education , and is grounded on the pedagogy of experience , reflection ,and action that promotes thinking ,and social skills.
Nowadays youth sing , dance ,and tap their feet when they hear filmy songs .But classroom stuff ,however important , leaves them cold and disinterested.

It is a fact that education tends to be frivolous .Today young boys and girls are being sucked into vortex of all kinds of corrupting stuff which leads them to believe that it is the “ in thing” .They supposed to the ill effects if the sex laden media with numerous facets , and avenues: the allurements of the ad-world with its lurid advertisements ,newspaper articles which seem to focus mainly on frivolity and pointless fun, on spicy gossip , and sex scandals , easily accessible porn web-sites , readily available ,and cheaply priced pornographic material ,the disco club culture all contribute to the decline of youth formation. Indeed, modern society hardly contributes anything to youth formations .Parents ,and educators should first of all set a good example more than giving advices.

Life constantly encounters obstacles , unexpected problems or setbacks . To face this problems , we must be equipped with resourcefulness .WE need clear mind calm nerves , logic thinking ,and sound reasoning lest we freeze up with a mental black.

WE need to remain cool , unexcited , yet leaping into action on high tension , reaching for the right decision , then acting on it. “STAY IN TOUCH WITH THE REALITY” . Every day we are battered by the reality of life.We are only sure of today with its joy and pain, with this duties and leisure.

Life is full of ups and downs .The WISDOM is to enjoy the up , and to have courage during the downs.

Life is for real.Success comes only with toil .It is going , climbing , building, creating ,and so much more .A successful man is one who has tried ,and work , not dodged; who has shouldered responsibility not evaded it.Work with a plan , and a clear goal be realistic in setting goals.

Guide your everyday actions toward positive outcomes.

“Time is like a stream.As it flows , it moves away .Be wise in its use.Lost time is never be found again”

Opinion

Post  rhen07 on Thu Jul 09, 2009 3:21 am

Maybe....
Perceived and how much progress is achieved reflects resources and values, choices and traditions, and the complexities of the economics and politics governing societies while optimism remains at a respectable level considering that 47 percent, or almost one in two, of the survey respondents said their quality of life worsened in the past 12 months.

Only 19 percent said their lives had improved.

The gap, however, between the number of “losers” or those whose quality of life worsened and the “gainers” eased by six points from the previous quarter.

Further, some 157,400 poor families have since enjoyed the eventual ownership of the lots they occupy, no longer illegal
dwellers.
Millions of youth, women and members of the urban poor have also been benefiting from the government social amelioration and poverty alleviation programs under the administration.
The youth who have dropped from schools were given emergency jobs. About 10,000 have been given trainings on
skills and livelihood and another 10,000 are nearing completion of their training program.
The government has also opened loan windows worth some P1.447 billion ($29 million) to 316,637 women-borrowers
for livelihood projects.
The elders have become recipients of half-priced medicines, reasonable transportation and food discounts and other
benefits befitting senior citizens.
----Just my opinion...
----Its all up to us now if we can brought it all in and change our own pace for our life...

WANTED: Quality Life

Post  jcespedido on Thu Jul 09, 2009 6:00 am

We often point a finger to our government officials; we usually talk about somebody's faults, but actually we never look at the mirror- for us to see ourselves. Series of people power revolutions, sudden transition of presidency, and a trend of civil unrest did not solve anything and did not make our lives even better. Filipinos are somewhat impulsive yet so passive. We continuously blaming the ones in the positions but didn't we realize that we were the ones that voted for them?

The quality of life of the Filipinos does not really revolve in government officials, but in our own selves. This is a question not of the number of jobs or opportunities and even the lack of good government officials but of a personal decision to make our lives better. Our lives are governed not by officials but our personal decisions. There is no such thing as destiny or chance, only choice. We are here in our very state because it is actually our choice. We cannot say that there are no opportunities for us to make our life better, but ask yourself, are you looking at the right place? WE must not blame others why we cannot find job to earn a living for our 12 children, in the first place it is you who decided to have 12 children. We must not blame others if we are living in a squatters area, it is you who chose to live in a city not knowing what will happen to you.

What we must do is to muster all our skills and potentials and use them with all our effort to experience a little "quality life." No opportunities? Make one. It is your life. Who are the captain of it. You can move it forward, park it forever in a dump site, or move backward and die in misery blaming others. Nothing to eat? Plant. Don't know how? Learn how to. Opportunities lies everywhere. We must really know how to find one fitted for us and not for others. Don't be envious. Don't be lazy. To see the beauty of the forest we must not stay and hug just a single tree...

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

Post  dutchezkat™ on Thu Jul 09, 2009 6:20 am

Yes, every Filipino can achieve a quality and better life, it depends on our actions and decisionss that we will make. Decision making is really hard to do it requires time to think about the topic that we will make decision with. How?we need to have our dream and make it come true by doing our goals in life. In the near future, we need to find a great job that suits our interest in life so that we can work easily and we can relate to it. Reasons that hinder our growth as a person first is God and Family, our family is our life we cannot live without them. They are the one who make us what we are now. They are the one who make us as a better person. They are the one who give us support, love and care. The love of a family is priceless. Friends is also one of the reasons because they are the second best thing next to God and our family. Friends are the one who comfort us when we have problems. They also supports us and always at our side. We need to find the best friend that we can share our experience and thoughts. In order for us to growth as a person we need have love, understanding and respect to others.

Post  maricon villamiel on Thu Jul 09, 2009 6:45 am

cheersYes!
for me...
we, Filipinos still have the chance to live a quality of life as long as we deserve it.
thus, how will we know if we deserve to have that quality life...?
there's a quote by Aristotle,
“The quality of life is determined by its activities.”
if we want something, then we must do something...
we Filipinos must exert full effort so that we will be deserving for the quality of life we are dreaming of.
one of the characteristics of Filipinos are seen in our most used expression---"bahala na!" and another is "may bukas pa!"
if we really want to achieve our goals, we must delete those in our minds and maximize our time in fulfilling our tasks.
"we are our choices..." (Sartre) it is our choice...

we can do it guys...
just believe you can... do your best... then we'll get it...
cheers

Filipinos can definitely achieve quality life. as far as i know we pinoys can easily adapt to the rapid change in the different field that there is. facing things and struggles is never new to us. as long as there is tomorrow and there is still hope, achievement of quality life wont be possible. cause that's the way it is.

Yes!. we Filipinos can achieve quality life..HOW? is the big question..

What's happening in our country is that, we are experiencing so much problems like poverty and unemployment. For us to achieve quality in life we must believe in ourselves and also to God who created us...We must not be pessimistic thinker or else our life will be miserable.. All of us have problems in life but it doesn't mean we can commit suicide or give up just because we cannot carry or solve our hardships...We are the one who make our choices in life and the one to make a quality life..

Just remember, the same as a spectacular Vogue magazine, remember that no matter how close you follow the jumps: Continued on page whatever. No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That's how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice. None of this matters. We're just warming up.”

The current economic downturn has many people searching for ways to improve their quality of life and attract abundance and prosperity. The daily media reports of gloom and doom financial conditions, deadly flu viruses, and the everyday discussed increase in unemployment has millions of Americans completely terrified. In a recent conversation with one of my coaching students she told me of a conversation that she had with her daughter regarding how to improve her quality of life. She told me that her daughter had been completely overwhelmed by the negative media blitz and how she is consumed by fear of debt, sickness, foreclosure, and crime and doesn't see anyway that her life can get better.

When I heard this I thought to myself "How many others don't know how to improve their quality of life?". This question really weighed on my mind and it inspired me to really go deep into what it takes to improve your quality of life and attract abundance and prosperity to live you best life now. Our quality of life is a direct reflection of how we think or view our lives and our self, if you believe yourself to be a loser and have a low self esteem your life will certainly mirror these types of thoughts. The same is true if you believe that anything is possible and you can be whatever you want to be then your life experience will mirror that too.

Do you know anyone that seems to succeed at everything they do and they live a lifestyle that others only dream of? What type of attitude do they have? These people generally are very positive and have an optimistic outlook on life. The same is true on the other hand, I'm sure you've met the grouch who is negative everyday and looks for any reason to rain on someone else's parade because they're unhappy with their life. Thses people are truly good people and are naturally positive people who have not discovered the formula for success to improve their quality of life.

To improve your quality of life to attract wealth, happiness, success, abundance and prosperity requires us to do a few things to manifest our birthright lifestyle of tremendous success here are a few steps to begin your journey on the Pathway to Prosperity.
Meditate to bring your mind and soul into balance. Spend time with your thoughts, clear your mind from clutter and reaching down deep into your soul. Listen to what your body tells you. You will not only find yourself in deeper harmony, but free to open your mind to everything the world offers.
Set aside time to be productive and time simply to relax. Although people say it may take days or weeks to get a task done, most people spend time dealing with distractions. Set aside time simply to be productive and deal with nothing else other than the task at hand. You will find that not only do you have more time to do things you enjoy, but you can accomplish much more than you ever did before.
Spend time with children, people a generation or two older than you and those less fortunate. They almost certainly have a different perspective than you do on several issues and it's wonderful to open your heart and mind to the way others see things in the world. By spending your time with them, not only do you give them the sense of value and importance, but you also become a better person in return.
Look around at nature and the world that you live in and try to experience scenery that's different from what you normally surround yourself. City, country, mountains, oceans or wherever you live, you can find beauty everywhere if you just stop to notice it.
Take time to learn something new everyday. Enroll in a college course, pick up a book from the library or listen to a lecture. These are all good ways to expand your mind and continuously be an active learner. Remember that there's no such thing as too much knowledge.

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

Post  jeremy may on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:23 am

Yes, we can!!!! We, Filipino people can achieve a quality life. Even we already have an economic crisis that almost routine in every generation, centennials Filipino people still a challenger of life. Yes, not all Filipino people giving a chance or opportunities specially in education the cause of high quality competition now a days. Many of the old Filipino people that not completely attend colleges or high school but they given a chance to the position that they desire because one of the specialty of a person is what we called "ability/skills/diskarte" and they reached the quality of life they want to be. For me quality of life is not only by education, money, status in life, range of income, numbers of houses, numbers of business etc!!! I always look for the happiness of one person of one family, specially in filipino people that we all known the tradition we have for taking care of our lolo's and lola's we have a good image of a family. Quality of life for me is putting God at the center of our life, the center of our family, in the center of our relationships, just only having a simple home that full of faith in God, respect in each other, responsible person and of course the love. Living in a simple life that compose of full of attention and care, love of the parents is a fulfilling quality of life, because I believe that the growth of a person starts with the family.

Yes we can, Filipinos are achiever, intelligent and exceptional, and there is no stopping that we can reach a quality life, We may experience hardships and challenges in life but we Filipinos are used to it, We are tough and strong, We should put our hands together and hope for the best at the same time we should take an action and start living that dream today, Let's look for a greener pasture. Let's not point our finger into only one person, Let's discipline ourselves to be a better citizen into our country.

I think reasons that hinder our growth as a person is being dependent sometimes and being selfish sometimes, We should learn to take an action by holding our hands, not being selfish and not being dependent, We should act like a TEAM and there is no letter "I" in the word TEAM.

Let's start living our dream today.=)

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

Post  rica on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:48 am

for me i think yes most of the Filipino achieve quality life in a way of having talents,they loving family, friends and most specially having a beautiful and wonderful "life". Every one of us have a talent...talent that we have to use and share to other people which is one of the reason why we have a quality of life. Many Filipino have a quality education and studying in the good and expensive schools. in this way they were having a quality of life because not all the children giving this chance to go to school because of the financial problem.

like me base on my experience i achieve a quality life because my family is there to give all my needs they send me to school, gives my daily needs and the comport which is the most important as a teenager. and i grew up as a good person, I'm satisfied on what i am now. But I know that this is not enough to say that I achieve a quality life because i do nothing to help my beloved country and the people around me, i don't have a lot of experience that i can give to other who need the advice but i think that the time will come that i can say that i totally achieve the quality life.

but in my observation in our country some of them doesn't achieve/have a quality of life because there's so many pilipino that is poor, they don't have a money, shelter, foods etc. this is a one reason why they said that they don't achieve quality life. they dont have enough education and work. But for me it is not a good reason to said that we didnt achieve a quality life. as much as we are alive and happy we are experiencing the quality life. Even though we have a problem it is not the reason to say "walang kwenta ang buhay" always remember that God is always there to help and guide us. never lose hope. Just enjoy life and always satisfied on what you are and what you have.. You will achieve the "quality of life"

i think the reasons that hinder our growth as a persons is we do not have a self-confidence and trust in our self and most specially trust in our lord Jesus Christ. we are always look in the bad things that happen in our life.

Post  fherlyn roquino on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:52 am

...yes,of course, i think Filipinos can achieve quality life because Filipinos have great talents and they are very resourceful. Filipinos are very hardworking and dedicated,say, for example, the OFW's who worked abroad. They sacrifice just to earn money and be able to raise their children that are here in the Philippines..

..how can they achieve quality life??well,simply just to finish their studies for them to find a good and profitable job in the future. Also, they should have the determination to continue their dreams--be focus--hardwork is also necessary. Parents are also a means to achieve a quality life. They should provide their children their neccessaries in life and give education. They should guide them so that they won't loose their way--be in drugs, early pregnancy, vices, drop-outs. Also, social life is important because it will boost our self-esteem..

..the reasons that hinder us to achieve quality life are "kahirapan". Most kids can't go to school because they don't have money..
..another is the government--the corrupt officials--that used the money that is supposed to be for the countrymen..
..no proper guidance is also a reason..some teens neglect their studies because they don't see any reason why they need to study..

..this should be solve,..especially with our government..so we can have progress and eventually every Filipino will achieve their own quality life..

Post  "BAD" on Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:05 am

YES, Of course, every Filipino has a chance to achieve quality life. Every Filipino has different ways how to deal in their lives for a quality life that they want. It is how they treat the society as it is. Their abilities and skills are needed to perform their jobs. To have a persistent effort in doing a task that is needed to work. Prayer and fear to the Lord help us to achieve quality life. Prayer is the most powerful weapon in anything that we do. Education is an advantage to have a quality life. It doesn’t mean that if you are not educated you can’t achieve a quality life. There are people achieve quality life because of their “kasipagan” that lead them to a successful life. The reasons that hinder our growth as a persons are the negative characteristics that we have, the situation in life, the problems and conflicts, and the environment that we live. Environment has an important role to hinder our growth as persons. Sometimes, we are shy to what we are doing and it could lead to disappointment. We have to do something to grow as a person. We have to deal with other person. We have to be optimistic. To take a hopeful and positive view of future outcome.

Of course we can achieve a quality life by simply living with no regrets in our lives. With nothing to stop us from seeking our hopes and dreams. The only reason that I can think of that can hinder our growth is the environment. If only there were less corruption, if only there were unity in this country of ours. As I learned, other countries admired us for the "EDSA Revolution" because with our unity we changed the corrupt system that we had.

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?


Yes, we Filipinos can achieve quality life by means of being grateful for what we have but working hard or harder to achieve more. I did not use the term “content” nor “satisfaction” for we all know that we would always want more. The phrase “being grateful for what we have” means that no matter how much or how little we have, it would be of no value if we are not grateful for it. As a concrete example, I can say that a poor family who finds happiness and joy in what little things it has a life of more quality than a very rich family who is always fighting and arguing about business matters. The phrase “working hard to achieve more” means that being happy with what little you have is not enough. You must always work and aim for something better.


In my opinion, the only reason that hinders our growth as persons is us. Many will say that poverty, politics, discrimination, etcetera, and etcetera are factors that hinder our personal growth. For me, those are not factors but excuses. We all know stories of a man who experienced poverty and is now a very rich and successful person. We all know of a certain someone who was discriminated his whole life and is now living his dream. My point is that if use these reasons as excuses, then we will never grow as persons because we let ourselves limit our integrity, our capabilities and most of all, our personality.

yes we can..Quality of life issues are of growing concern to communities around the world. Movements toward greater environmental quality, sustainable development, and healthy communities . At the same time, citizens have started to expect from public programs the kinds of results and performance to which they have grown accustomed in our consumer-oriented society.if we want a changes it should began in our selves.

I was walking along the corridor of Quezon Avenue and staring the different expressions of people I saw when there came a question on my mind, "what is real happiness and what do make these people satisfy their life as a human being". Do they have the same principle as I have? Do they take life as a battlefield? How do they achieve a quality life?

Different people have different perceptions towards a good life. Some people prefer money as their measurement for intensity of their hapiness. Others don't feel a complete family and this makes them motivating factor to create their own. Where are many other need spirituality, social and moral responsibility to add quality to their life.

In other words, they expect to find that particular person of the opposite sex who will make them content for life and with whom they can share the delight of parenthood in a home of their own. All of these opportunities seem so normal, easy and reasonable, that it may be difficult to believe that young individuals of other times and other backgrounds have repeatedly felt rather differently.

Some People see life in money terms. They believe that money makes the world go round. Haha... It sounds funny, isn't it? It is!

As what is being said,"life is beautiful and yet life is not a bed of roses. Though it is full of ups and downs it has facets of blessings and successes.

To some people, life is hard, cruel and merciless. These set of people see life as punishment throughout their entire lives. They therefore resigned themselves to fate, believing all is finished. To them, nothing that they do can ever be good. They take delight in committing crimes and maiming others to avenge their ill-fortune. They lost every sense of direction and most times, some of them go as far as committing suicide, just to escape the injustice life has meted out to them.

But there are those who see life as a challenge, a channel of discovery and innovation, a prospect for success and a gateway to wealth. To them life is sweet, colourful and kind. No matter the situation these people find themselves, they keep pressing on, believing in a cause, a cause to succeed and get the most out of life. No wonder an adage says, “Where there is life, there is hope.”

The will to succeed or fail lies within an individual jurisdiction. You can live life to the fullest with utmost satisfaction and fulfillment if you determine with all your mind, body and soul to succeed. On the other hand, life can be miserable to you if you take everything for granted and wait on fate to play itself out.

Setting of goals and strategic plans that will strive no matter the odds which may move against you is one of the basic things needed to get the best out of life. These goals which must be result oriented, should be followed up consistently even if things seem blurred or unyielding at first.

There are hindrances to happiness particularly in the Philippines. What are those? Let me cite 3 examples. Number one is Poverty. Number two is envious and the last is great want to have an enormous area of power.

The poverty in the Philippines is so obvious. This pushes the Filipino people to commit crimes. Why do they Do ThaT? It is because they need to survive. Due to unemployment hike, lack of education and crisis in the economy, they tend to go robbing to feed for the stomach of their family. Yeah, filipino people are so family loving as they do sacrifice for their loved ones.

The second one is envious. This evil thinking pushes people to look superior than others.

The great want to have an enormous power pushes the filipino people to do evil even though they can hurt others. An example is during campaign. Some candidates pay people in order to vote for them. The greatest evil act is to kill their opponent running politician. It is so abnormal, isn't is? It is obviously yes!!!

For me, life is what we make it and doing good to others make a quality life.

Life is a challenge. And for anyone to succeed in life, he must be ready to show the stuff he is made of. He must be ready to sacrifice his time and build up his mind frame toward success. What is happening in our environment should not influence or affect us in our daily quest for success in life. Instead, we should control the happenings around us.

Life is so easy, yet many people rush and miss what they want to achieve in life. Don’t rush in life. Take one step at a time. Each step should be properly planned before being launched. Steady, balance, mark and shoot. And before you know it, the sky will become the beginning of your success.

All the great men of today, has one way or the other tasted the other side of life but they did not cower. Instead, they were renewed to redefine their goals; they ride on with faith, believing in their potentials, focusing their mind on something, knowing fully well that in every black cloud there is always a silver lining.

I take life to be very simple and do you know what? Life is to be enjoyed. What about you?

Can Filipinos achieve quality life? How? And what are the reasons that hinder our growth as persons?

Post  nhie on Thu Jul 09, 2009 6:59 pm

of course, all filipinos can achieve quality life. By taking a step by step improvement because a common flaw of filipinos is impatience. Many plans a "get rich quick scheme" but who usually achieves quality life? Those who wait and start at zero. all of us have his/her own "forte" as we say. Some in arts, math, science, etc. we just don't make good use of our abilities which hinders our road to glory. One great factor that slows our growth is "GOAL". why do we work? just for fun? no! its because we have a goal which drives us to do better and aim for the best which make us closer to our dreams. Goal and Patience are related, because you can't achieve you're goal in an instant you have to sow before you can reap.

clown clown clown yes,quality life can achieve by filipinos. By means of considering the important factors that can help us filipinos to have a quality of life. The first ting is our faith to our God ,and the to our self as being a individual. The knowledge that we have can make us to grow as a person. We should need to consider as being a individual the things that has a greater factor that affecting our lives. Especially we should be helping each other and treat them as one of us. Caring with each other and the loved that should be always in our heart.We should be start first to our self . We think first the thing that we had to our self. And if we find the things that are wrong try to change it .So that it is important the change first to our self ,,because if the other see you what you are ,,you can easily influence them. Because you are the one who had those kind of values.



But as being part of our life there are come a time s that we do not expected the tragedy,sickness, and problems that may happen to our life. That those kind of problem can easily affects as a being a individual. That could damaged our mind for those happening right now. It is important that now a days we should maximize our time and make all the good things that we can do to our family or love one . Because it is liked on the road ,,you didn't know what or whose persons that you can meet for every way........But we should be always strong and put to our heart and mind that our God would never let us fall....and He is always there to guide us every way.
