I have been blogging about achievers and their success, and I would like to add that such feat could generate the following:
Admiration from peers and strangers who have positive personalities, they who always see the positive side of things.
Satisfaction from people who are part of the achiever’s life, they who also sacrificed such as family members, relatives and some friends and even strangers who, in one way or another are instrumental for the achievement.
Envy from anybody, as evil is part of life.
There is no problem with the positive effects of achievements such as admiration and satisfaction. The problem is with envy, as it may result to:
Bashing in facebook and other blog sites even by friends supposedly using fictitious identity.
Jokes from envious friends such as anonymous and threatening messages sent through the cellphone and chat facility of the facebook.
Development of ill feeling towards the achiever.
Bashing and harmful jokes are the negative “gains” from the high technology that rules life today. Simply said, anybody can create hundreds of identity in the internet and use them for malicious intent, and SIM cards can be bought from sidewalk peddlers for as low as Php15, already with free text and calls to be used in sending anonymous messages or making calls to poor victims. On the other hand, the development of ill feeling towards the achiever occurs among selfish people who want everything in life at all cost. Their ego made them feel that only they are capable of succeeding in life.
Many successful lives have been ruined by the egoistic and selfish people who cannot stand the achievement of others…that is one of the reasons why the world is beset with disharmony. Man has no choice but to live with that reality. Meanwhile, what the achievers can do is thank the Lord for their success and restrain themselves from wishing bad karma for their detractors for it may just happen as dictated by the “Golden Rule”.
SOME PEOPLE PRESUME THAT WHAT THEY CANNOT DO, OTHERS CANNOT DO, AS WELL. THEY PRESUME THAT THE SHORTCOMINGS AND INSUFFICIENCIES THAT THEY HAVE, OTHERS HAVE, TOO…HENCE, THEY EXPECT OR EVEN WISH OTHERS TO FAIL, AS THEY DID. THEY ARE THE CRABS OF THE SOCIETY…THE NEGATIVE THINKERS.
INSTEAD OF BEING NEGATIVE, THEY SHOULD BE HAPPY FOR THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF OTHERS. AND, THOUGH, THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO COPY THEIR FEAT TO THE LAST EFFORT, IF THEY STRIVE HARDER, THEY MAY BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH OTHER THINGS BASED ON THEIR DISTINCT CAPABILITY AND CHARACTER. HUMANS DIFFER FROM EACH OTHER… UNLESS CLONED FROM ANOTHER.
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT MANAGERS, DIFFER FROM EACH OTHER ON HOW THEY RUN A COMPANY. LEADERS OF NATIONS HAVE DIFFERENG DIRECTION. SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMEN HAVE WELL-GUARDED TECHNIQUES OF THEIR OWN, ETC. WE CANNOT BE LIKE SOMEONE ELSE.
WHAT THE WORLD NEED IS COOPERATION. WE MUST PUSH AND PULL EACH OTHER TOWARDS OUR GOALS IN LIFE FOR THE COMMON GOOD OF ALL!
UPANG HINDI MAGING 100% ANG GALIT SA ISANG TAO, ALALAHANIN DIN ANG MGA MAGAGANDANG BAGAY NA KANYANG GINAWA. HINDI LANG IISANG UGALI MAYROON ANG TAO…MARAMI AT NAGKAKAIBA – MABUTI AT MASAMA. PERO KUNG SA TINGIN AY TALAGANG UMIIRAL ANG KASAMAAN NG ISANG TAO, UNAWAIN NA LANG, AT IWASAN UPANG WALANG GULO NA BAKA HUMANTONG PA SA SAKITAN.
PATI SI HESUS AY NAGMURA DIN AYON SA BIBLIYA. MATINDI ANG KAPANGYARIHAN NG KANYANG PAGMUMURA DAHIL NALANTA ANG PUNO NG PRUTAS NA HINDI NAGKAROON NG BUNGA, PALATANDAANG HINDI NITO GINAMPANAN ANG KANYANG PAPEL SA MUNDO. DAHIL SA PAGKA-INUTIL NG PUNO AY NAGING BIKTIMA RIN SI HESUS NA GUTOM NANG PANAHONG YON. KUNG ANG PAGMUMURA SIGURO NI DUTERTE AY MAY MATINDI RING KAPANGYARIHAN TULAD NG KAY HESUS, BAKA ANG MGA DRUG LORDS AY NALUSAW NA!
ANG DEMONYO AY MAY PAKINABANG NA NAI-AMBAG SA LAYUNIN NG DIYOS DAHIL GINAMIT SIYA NITO UPANG SUBUKAN SI HESUS. DAPAT TANDAANG HINDI MALALAMAN KUNG MABUTI ANG GINAGAWA NG ISANG TAO KUNG WALANG MASAMANG PAGBABATAYAN. LAHAT NG BAGAY SA MUNDO AY DAPAT IBATAY SA IBA PA UPANG MALAMAN KUNG ANONG URI SIYA. HINDI MALALAMAN NG ISANG TAO, HALIMBAWA, NA SIYA AY MATANGKAD KUNG WALANG PANDAK! WALANG MASASABING MABANGO KUNG HINDI ALAM KUNG ANO ANG AMOY NG MABAHO!
AYON PA RIN SA BIBLIYA, KAHIT PINATAY NI CAIN SI ABEL AY HINDI SIYA TULUYANG ITINAKWIL NG DIYOS, BAGKUS AY NILAGYAN SIYA NG TATAK UPANG HINDI KUYUGIN NG IBANG TAONG MASASALUBONG NIYA NA NAKAALAM NG KANYANG GINAWA. GANOON DIN ANG GINAWA KAY ADAN AT EBA, PATI ANG ULUPONG NA PINALAYAS NA LANG SA HARDIN NG GETSEMANE, AYON SA ALAMAT TUNGKOL SA PARAISO NA NAKASAAD SA BIBLIYA. PALAGAY KO, KUNG TINULUYANG PATAYIN NG DIYOS ANG ULUPONG AT HINDI BASTA NA LANG PINALAYAS, BAKA ANG UGALING TRAIDOR NG TAO AY HINDI UMIIRAL NGAYON!
SA PANAHON NAMAN NGAYON, KAHIT ANG MGA NAGING ADIK AT PUSHER AY MINSAN DIN NAMAN SIGURONG NAGING MABAIT NA ANAK O ASAWA AT NAAKAY LANG NG MGA MASASAMANG KAIBIGAN O NAITULAK NG MASIDHING PANGANGAILANGAN. NAMATAY SILA DAHIL NANLABAN SA UMAARESTO O PINATAY MISMO NG DATI NILANG MGA AMONG POLICE NINJA AT IBA PANG DRUG PUSHER NA AYAW MAITURO…KAYA HUWAG ITURO SINA DUTERTE AT DE LA ROSA NA MAY PAKANA NG LAHAT.
FINALLY, HINDI HININGI NG BAWA’T TAO NA SIYA AY IPANGANAK SA MUNDO. DAHIL DIYAN, GANOON NA LANG SIGURO ANG PAG-IYAK AT PAGPALAHAW NG BAGONG ISINILANG NA SANGGOL NANG MARAMDAMANG INILABAS SIYA SA MUNDO DAHIL NAAMOY NITO ANG MABANTOT NA MARUMING HANGIN, AT LALONG TUMINDI PA ANG KANYANG IYAK…PALUIN BA NAMAN SIYA GANOONG WALA NAMAN SIYANG KASALANAN AT KARARATING LANG NIYA SA MUNDONG MARUMI AT MAGULO!
Failed Expectation Breeds
Disappointment and Discouragement
…but we should move on
By Apolinario Villalobos
Honestly now, disappointment and discouragement can really result from failed expectations. However, this should not hold us from moving on. The failure should instead give us more impetus to go ahead, no matter what. It should serve as an inspiration and a lesson on which our next moves should be founded.
Many stories are told about great artists who suffered not only one or two but series of failures before finally, achieving fame. Inventors were even ridiculed when they presented their ideas. The same is true with many businessmen who suffered bankruptcies before finally achieving the recognition as business tycoons. These people showed that success in life is sweetest if achieved the hard way.
The most popular encouragement that we hear is, “….no pain, no glory”. Achievers who made use of such guidance should be thankful to whoever first said that. If we set our eyes towards a certain goal, we should expect trials along the way….and with those, we should also expect failures.
Now, if we do not want to get disappointed in life, we should restrain ourselves from having an ambition. We should be contented with we have at the moment. We should be prepared for a stagnant life, as well as, heartaches if we find ourselves left behind by others who struggle by all means to move up or ahead. On the other hand we deserve the heartaches because in the first place, it was our choice not to experience failures. Lastly, as a reminder, the fact is that, regrets always come at the end.
