My 2012 in review

Things to be grateful for this 2012:

 - Graduating from Ateneo for the second time!

 - Being part of failed attempts to change the world in The Spark Book Project, GreenSpace, and many more.

 - Being part of successful attempts to found MagisSolutions, the Crust, Produkto, and a little more.

 - Getting hired in my first job ever.

 - Quitting from my first job ever (after 3 days) (link)

 - Getting hired in my second job ever.

 - Earning a certificate on Social Entrepreneurship 

 - Meeting my girlfriend

This year had the most successes, but only because it also had the most failures. They say successful people create their own luck. The saying “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” is kind of true. I shot and shot and shot this 2012. I’ve missed a lot. But I’ve got real treasures out of it as well.

Reality of fear:

You’re not scared of the dark
-You’re scared of what’s in it.
You’re not afraid of heights.
-You’re afraid of falling.
You’re not afraid of people around you.
-You’re just afraid of being rejected.
You’re not afraid to love.
-You’re just afraid of not being loved back.
You’re not afraid to let go.
-You’re just afraid to accept the reality of them being gone.
You’re not afraid to try again.
-You’re just afraid of getting hurt for the same reason.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.

Jar of Mayonnaise and 2 Cups of Coffee

When things in your life seem, almost too much to handle,
When 24 Hours in a day is not enough,
Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class 
and had some items in front of him.
When the class began, wordlessly,
He picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
And proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students, if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open Areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.
Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
