How to get rich

Have you read the book entitled the science of getting rich by Wallace D. Wattles? I’ve read about this book two years ago and like every good book that I’ve read it remains in my memory. No I don’t own the book I’ve just read it in the house of my In-laws. During that time I don’t have a job and I’ve just given birth to my first child. I applied to business institutions and schools in our City and it took me about 6 months to get a job.
My primary concern is to get a job within the City only because I want to be near my baby and my husband. It took me about more than eight job interviews to get a job. So just imagine the rejections that I have experienced before getting the job that I have now. Anyway reading that book has in a way empowered me to go further or maybe I was born to think positively.

These are the points that I got from the book. It says that we must use our mind and imagine what we want. It is through imagining that things that we want that drives us to push farther. It also says to have a creative thought in using the formless substance around us. We must also think positively and surround ourselves with great things to achieve more. We must always be grateful with what we have and what we will have and become because all great things comes to those who are grateful. Never worry or think negatively because it blocks creative thought. We must also be efficient in everything we do and never hurry but take one step at a time.

If you fail don’t dwell on your failure but move on and forget about it. You might not realize that it happened for a purpose and that something much greater is coming your way. Never be competitive because it will block creative thought. What you do or sell should enrich the lives of people you deal with. Aspire to be rich and never ever accept that it cannot be done. It is only your will that can make you what you will become. Your will cannot be impose to other person because that is coercion and you can only impose it to yourself. Prayer can strengthen your faith but it is only you who can answer your prayer. Click here to get your free copy.

How I got my Job

I got my job two years ago and this is how it happened. One day my husband and I was just strolling and then we came by a new three story building of a financial institution and he said to me why don’t you try to ask if they are hiring? So we went inside and I asked an employee there if they are still hiring. She told me to submit an application to the manager and the next day I applied. After one month I was called and informed that there will be an examination. When the day of the examination arrived I was prepared because I reviewed on my own. I know that job examinations required basic skills such as IQ, abstracts, Grammar, clerical skills, mathematical equations and personality tests. The examination was hard because we were given minutes only to answer many questions. To top it all there were about fifty applicants taking the test and I know from experience that only the top ten passers will be interviewed. So there I was praying and hoping to pass the examination and eventually get hired.

A month after the test to my surprised I was called again for a panel interview and I was prepared. Thinking beforehand what are the supposed to be questions that might be asked from me and practicing what is my possible answers. There where about ten applicants that were interviewed including me. Weeks passed by and I was called again and informed that I was hired. My husband and I were very happy for the news because that would mean that we can already rent a house of our own. During that time we lived with my parents because his income could not suffice if we live on our own. I later found out that there were only two of us who got the job and thank god I was one of the two.

My friend comes home from Dubai

Finally I’ve found the right template for my two blogs from blogger buster and I’m finally satisfied with the lay out. Now that I have finalized the look of my blog I will have to concentrate more on posting and promoting. Yesterday my best friend arrived from Dubai and as usual she gave me a box of 400 grams of my favorite chocolate to my delight. She surprised me in the office and she asked for my help because she wanted to buy a house. She said that she will be coming back to Dubai after two weeks time to resume her job there and she will leave behind her two children here in the Philippines.

We have been friends since sixth grade and it’s true that friendship lingers on even if we don’t communicate often. Even if we have taken up different college degree in the past we went to the same school and still hang out often during our school days. After college we went our separate ways because of our career but our friendship is still there. When I think about it we have been friends for almost 18 years already. When we were still single we slept in each others house when we have time and it only stops when she got married. There was period of adjustment when she got married because she could not be with me most of the time, I know that family comes first. Now we both have two children and we don’t hang out anymore because she is working and living in Dubai. We have occasional emails and greet each other through yahoo messenger.

Trade shows is a must if you are starting a business

Practical things are needed if you are starting in the business. First of all your main concern is to let people know of the products that you are selling. One of the most important things that you can do is to participate in trade shows where you can showcase your products to the market. If you are selling food products then it is also necessary that you bring with you samples for free tasting. This method is the most effective in selling your food products even I can become one of your customers.

In your trade show booths you can display your products in a decorative manner so that you can attract buyers. You need pipe and drape on your booth and for added effect you might need banner stands and table skirts. Banner stand can also act as an advertising promotion.

Recycling a social responsibility to nature

Uncontrolled waste is one of the problems in our environment today. There are a number of things that we can do to help and the only answer is to recycle. In waste disposal we have to segregate the biodegradable from the non-biodegradable. Biodegradable wastes are garbage that is eco-friendly that eventually becomes part of the earth and soil. These are compost materials such as fruit and vegetable peels, paper and etc. When these wastes decomposed and mixed with soil it becomes quite useful in gardening because it can make the soil more productive. Non-biodegradable waste on the other hand is garbage that cannot possibly turn into dirt for a long period of time. These are waste such as grocery bags, plastic and Styrofoam. These non-biodegradable materials can be recycled to help our environment and to minimize our waste.

How about waste solutions? There are many companies that use solvent to create their finish products and it is also a known fact that the wastes are also harmful to the environment. There is such a thing as solvent recycle. The solvent recycler utilizes distillation to separate a process solvent from its contaminant for reuse. The process consists of heating the mixture until the solvent reaches its vaporization point. Once the solvent vaporizes, it enters a condenser unit and then it cools down into liquid form leaving the contaminant behind. What is so great in these solvent recyclers is the volume of usable solvent from the mixture will nearly approach 99.9% and reach purity levels equal to virgin product. It is cost effective and at the same time we are exercising our social responsibility to nature.

A thought to Ponder 2

It’s Friday again and it’s time to think spiritually. Today let’s think about a love of a parent to a child. As we all know we loved our children they are a miracle from God. We can just imagine how could a single cell become a person slowly and grows inside you for 9 months it’s really awesome just thinking about it. When I think about my child today I still can’t believe how she became what she is today so full of life. When I think about it I still can’t believe that my body could supply all the necessary nutrients to build her body when she was still inside of me. She and her brother are like angels sent from heaven and the source of my happiness. Like all parents before us we still have to think of the future ahead of us what will they be like in their teens and God forbid could they grow up to be rebellious like other sons and daughters?

How does one react when the child grows up to be rebellious? What would you do if you were in that situation in the future? Please post your comments on your blog and let me know thanks.

Our rage makes us just like the Incredible Hulk

My husband and I watch the movie entitled the incredible hulk 2. It stars Edward Norton and Liv Tyler. The movie was really fun to watch because of the action packed story. It never has any dull moments because Hulk is always on the run to avoid the soldiers who wanted to capture him. Anyway I have seen the first movie but this one is much better than the first. Aside from the visual effects the leading man and woman is much well known than the first installment.

The story focuses on this young scientist escape from his adversaries who wanted his invention for biological weaponry. His scientific discovery is altering the DNA of the person administered with the chemical making the person hundred times stronger, much faster and having unsurpassed agility. The bad thing is that aside from transforming into a monster he gets his strength from his uncontrolled rage which is actually dangerous to anyone who comes his way. This 2nd installment is actually fun to watch because he has an adversary who equaled with his strength and ugliness whom they called abomination. Anyway to make the story short in the end Hulk annihilated his opponent and escaped again.

Well like hulk our rage engulfs us and turns us into a monster enabling us to crush the heart of anyone who comes our way. Uncontrolled rage is also one of leading cause of murder in our society today. I for one have experienced it and even if I never murdered anyone I have hurt anyone’s feeling who comes my way. Even if tongue lashing does not hurt the person physically it does wound the heart and leaves a scar that they can remember as long as they live. That is why I hate fighting it brings out the worst in me and makes me do or say things that I later regret. There is always a moral way to settle arguments without bickering and that’s what I am trying to install into my character to prevent guilt from torturing me again. It is always a must to control our rage and let it all out in a civilized manner and the only thing that can make it happen is to talk to our opponent in a soft spoken manner so as not to provoke them as well.

A thought to ponder#1

It is very important to ponder on our life even once in a while because it is by thinking about it that we will come to realize whether we are in the right track or not. It is through reflection that we will appreciate the graces that came to us and also to recognize our faults and learn from our failures. It is also through it that we realize whether we are living the life we want and also to know if there is still something that we want to achieve.

Having time to sort out our mind and feelings are very beneficial for us because it will affect our choices in life. Our choices can make or break our present and future lifestyle. So I am making a post every Friday entitled a thought to ponder and I’m inviting my friends to comment and link on it.

So to start of here is our reflection for today. What makes Christianity different from all the other religion in the world? You can also read on Timothy 3:4-7 for guidance. I know religion is the subject of most heated debates but there is no wrong answer here and your comments are highly appreciated.

Will you buy a PlayStation online?

On my internet surfing I have stumbled upon This site sells anything and everything shoppers search online. One particular thing that catches my attention is the PlayStation3 by Sony. The machine has so many cool features such as it plays all PS2 and PlayStation games. It features 1080 p HDTV compatibility and plays DVD as well as Blu-Ray Discs and CD’s. You got to have Sony PlayStation 3 Blu-Ray remote control to play Blu-Ray discs on your HiDef – TV. This will definitely be a treat to those who love gaming and watching movies.

As a mother I often bring my child with me in the mall to play video games. It’s our bonding time together during weekends. Our favorite game is car racing. I push the pedal while he stirs the wheel. We had so much fun together. It would be great if we have our own PlayStation so that his dad will also play with us. He has a busy schedule that is why he cannot play with his son. I will definitely buy a PlayStation3 in the near future if resources permit.

A Halloween to remember

Last October 30, 2008, the company I worked with held a children’s Halloween party with jollibee in our office. It was really fun because there was also a Halloween decoration contest for every floor in our building. The decorations were ranging from spiders on the web, bats, hanging witch on a broom, different monsters and a wall filled with information on Halloween and creatures from Philippine Mythology.

We also have fun dressing our kids with a costume for their trick or treats because there was also a costume contest. I dressed my child with Chinese attire in the mano po movie because it suits him well because of his eyes that he inherited from my father. We had a Japanese blood in our veins on my father’s side of the family due to the Japanese occupation in the Philippines in the past.

It’s funny because I didn’t get my father’s eyes but my younger sister did and we don’t even look related. My sister and I don’t look alike at all. Although I get my fathers forehead and dimples I get most of my looks from my mom. This is also true to my son because he and his sister don’t look alike at all. My daughter gets most of her looks from me especially my eyes, nose and the shape of my face. So even when he was younger until now anyone who looks at my child ask me why he had those eyes and I always explained to them our lineage.

The party was so much fun because there were games and giveaways. At the end of the program the Jollibee mascot arrived and danced to the children’s delight. My child really likes Jollibee so he was very happy when Jollibee arrived that he pulled my hand to come nearer to the mascot. When the mascot finished his dance the children where ushered for a picture taking with him. So the mommies where very busy taking pictures with jollibee and their children. I shoot a picture of my child hugging Jollibee and it was a priceless sight looking at him smiling while looking at the mascot. After the party the children were lead to roam around the building clutching their goody bag for trick or treats. So there we were hiking from first floor to third floor leading our children to ask goodies to our colleagues. We had so much fun I hope next year’s Halloween will be as good as this.
