For me, there has always been something special about people living their dreams. They have this enthusiastic, positive spark of pure happiness and energy around them. Doing things in a very inspiring way. With wonderful accomplishments. Living in great gratitude and inspired to give back. To share and to support others.
For me, these are the kind of people that I admire. A special breed. Since young age, I was wanting to be like them. Trying to create a picture of my own dreams. I did that A LOT! The picture was always clear. But I believed myself to be too small for these big dreams. I always gave up when the moment arrived for things to become real.
The biggest question in the world may be “why are we here?” or “ why am I here?”. This is a deep question. Questioning our very existence. Many people break their head answering it. Others tend to forget to think about it, simply don’t care or have a clue. People also tend not to look within themselves for the answer.
There are moments in our lives that leave great impact in our memories. We remember times in our childhood that describe what being a child is about. Times when we can be pleased easily with simple things like ice cream, candies and praises from our parents. And then the big space where we used to live in becomes smaller as we grow older. Family is no longer the only people that we know. We meet other people, see other places and discover how big the world is. We are excited to grow up and experience the best part of the teenage years. With first love. First heartbreak. First job. Or consider a lot first lessons learned in life. But we are subconcious that those will only be the first few parts of our life's story.

I recently took a test of "The five Love Languages of Love". Although I already know myself what I am mostly using which I learned few years back, it was such a good way to see written facts about myself and understand why people tend to misunderstood each other. This test is taken from Gary Chapman's "The 5 Languages of Love, The secret to love that lasts". Many couples everywhere happen to have some issues sometimes not being addressed the way it should. But if only people know what love language their partner speaks it would be easier to solve things.
As defined in Chapman's online test, the five languages of love are as follows:
Finding a job is perhaps one of the hardest step to do when building up your career. You graduated from university, created your CV, and applied for jobs online or maybe even looked somewhere else. But it's not just you. There are lots of fresh graduates each year. And even experienced workers do that to either look for better offers or change their career paths. It doesn't sound easy, is it? But it pays to be prepared and have the right skills before you start your job hunting. Be competitive! I have listed below some of the skills you need to learn to get that job.
I learned how important it is to start your day with a positive thinking. I do have a lot of intentions to think of but the subconscious mind always leads us to what we truly desire. I have listed some lessons I learned just for the past weeks with just simple but pure intentions of being grateful each day, being an inspiration, and expressing love.
"Love is such a powerful feeling that it can make us strong if handled carefully or make us weak if we lose control."
Your goal as a person should be to grow as an individual. But the problem with some or most of us is we tend to forget it when we fail to prioritize things because of love. Love is such a powerful feeling that it can make us strong if handled carefully or make us weak if we lose control. I attended a seminar in 2003 that is called Foundations of Leadership Excellence. We did an activity to measure our love, career and health. The secret is that all must be given equal importance to make you strong and grow as a person. I've had relationships in the past that were only focused on love alone. What about health? And career? And other things? And so I was not content and kept looking for solutions to fulfill my happiness. The balance was not there and I lost control and stability to stand on my own that affected other areas of myself as person.
Many years ago blogging has become a trend for its usefulness to media. And now it's becoming more popular as you can find almost everything online through people's blogs. In 2010 I attempted to start a blog because I wanted to document my life virtually. But I was not savvy enough to manage a website, so I thought it was just a waste of time. I also didn't feel that confident enough with my writing skills. I continued writing in my journal like I always do.
This essay was created in response to my professor's requirement for our Career Professionalism seminar.
What I have learned in Career Professionalism and how this will help me in my future jobs.
We all have our own dreams to fulfill our lives. But the big question is how are we going to achieve it? I have heard about people setting goals, making plans and taking steps to achieve it. With all the many strategies people have, the results of their actions may differ from one way to the others. Some people may succeed, others may change plans, but the worst thing is some people may actually fail. Specially if they lack the right attitude to chase success. I have learned that one major factor that people may be disregarding is being professional. Let me share what I have learned in Career Professionalism and understand how this will help me in my future jobs.
