Poverty elsewhere

Posted: April 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

Did you see a lot of “tambay” in your place? What do you think they are thinking about their situation? Do you feel any sympathy to them?

I know there is a lot of a questions forming in your mind saying that being poor is the product of government corruption and love for power and money. I guess that is the outset before, however when you look at our economy today we are moving on little by little. The reason for this transformation relies to our leader and his subordinates; ‘tuwid na daan’ is not a fantasy any more it’s become worthiness.        

   The famous financial adviser Robert Kiyosaki said “Skills make you rich, not theories”, I crave for his words of wisdom when it come to success, prosperity and to become a financial literate. Being an observant citizen of this country I thought there is a never-ending cycle between the rich and the poor. I am not against Manny Pangilinan,Jaime Zobel de Ayala, Henry Sy,Lance Gokongwei, Napoleon Nazareno and Tony Tan Caktiong who are the rich and famous in this county where we belong.

My friends, netizen, critique for change, different party list, youth and the millions of people accused the rich for not helping them I recommend the book EXTRAORDINARY: stories from aspiring leaders by Victor Magdarang and Nikki Dy-Liacco. If you ask me now if leader is born to be a leader I will say NO. Look at the mirror and tell yourself am I competent to become rich and to become leader of this nation?. Each of us were given 24 hours and 365 days a year to show what we’ve got, you can choose to become forever poor or forever rich.

As I watch news on T.V they tell the reporters that they can’t feel the affluence of our country. Same scenario in the past 10 years ago (unemployement, hunger, education, health etc.) they have many concerns and what they do is to wait…and wait…

Our government at present accomplish anti poverty projects like cash incentives, discount on hospitals, mass hiring, sometimes free medical and dental check-ups, livelihood projects and scholarships for the youth and relocations of families.

Most Filipinos says it is not enough, oh Jesus Christ what kind of help will uplift them. If they want total change make an effort to change the sloth of being a diligence person.

I believe my fellow Filipino’s are hardworking so let your mind and body moves and be the change you want to be. Set a goal and believe that you can survive, government are just offering a support method but still we are the one who is responsible for ourselves.
