No Guts, No Glory

I’m so happy for my friend Melai as she was profiled to be a QSP Intern, the same position that was offered to me last month. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the guts to apply for the said position and I told my coach to just give the opportunity to others. Now, that my friend has her own chance, I told her not to let it pass and don’t commit the same mistakes I did before. I know it’s wrong, I know I need to grab all the opportunities that would be presented to me, unfortunately fear enveloped me. I don’t want to take risks and I really fear failure. I am afraid of what other people would say or would think of me if I fail such an easy to get position. I am afraid period. But I was enlightened by what Bro Bo Sanchez said on his weekly program in ABC 5 regarding Living The Life. He said that a certain survey company asked around 300 older people aging from 60 years old and above on what do they think their greatest regrets are and most of them answered almost the same thing. That they were not able to take enough risks in their lives. They are afraid of failure so they also had limited successes. Bro Bo said that the only way to success is failure. Thomas Edison failed a thousand times on his experiments but he was the one who invented the light bulb. It’s all about the mindset…being positive all the time knowing whatever happens and wherever life may lead you…God wants you to be on that very same spot where you are right now. It is all written and it already has a happy ending. We just need to enjoy the journey of life while we still can. I know I need to take risks, I know I need to take my chances and from now on…I am focusing only on my goals. Nobody can ever hinder me from being successful in everything I do because God is the one that’s leading the way. Amen.
