Sa pagsisimula ng taon, karamihan sa atin ang New Year’s resolution ay mas ayusin ang paghahawak ng pera. Marami ang nais ang kung tawagin ay “financial independence” o ang sitwasyon sa buhay kung saan hindi natin pinuproblema ang pera at kung mababayaran ba o hindi ang mga bayarin.
Ilan sa atin ang maswerteng tila magnet raw ng pera o mas nakaka-attract ng wealth o yaman, pero ang totoo, simple lang naman ang ginagawa nila. Nais mo bang malaman ang kanilang sikreto? Read on to find out 5 easy steps in attracting wealth this year and the years to come.
1. Focus On What You Have Now
Imbes isipin kung ano ang wala o kung ano ang “sana”, focus on what you have now. Whether the money that you have is very little, or you have nothing at all—Focus on the Now. What can you do to improve your current money scenario. Kung may maliit kang hawak, focus on that now. Plan on how to spend and save. Plan on how you can make that small amount grow.
2. Believe You are Worthy of Happiness
You can truly be wealthy if you think you deserve to be. Kung tingin mo ay hindi ka “worthy”, your mindset will tell you at kasunod na riyan ang “action” and “mentality” mo towards that mindset. If you believe you are worthy of happiness and comfort in life, then you are. Start manifesting this in your life, then money will follow. Attract it, by thinking it.
3. Respect the Power of Money
Ang pera mo ay resulta ng pagod at trabaho mo. When you disrespect this, it means you disrespect yourself. Respecting money means keeping it organized. It means tracking it on a regular basis. Respecting money also means not using it as a temporary tool to boost self-esteem through unneeded spending.
4. Study Wealth
Like anything that you want to achieve such as you want to be a doctor or a teacher, you study before you can achieve it. The same thing goes with Money. If you want to achieve money, study it. Read about people who attract money and financial indepence. Kung aaralin mo ang mga tao who have true wealth, eto ang common denominator nila—they do not wear flashy jewelry, drive expensive cars or wear designer clothes. Majority of millionaires are meticulous budgeters who have created their wealth over the course of time.
5. Give Money Away
Good gestures bring good Karma. Money is a result of Good Karma. When we give money to those who are less fortunate, we are helping to replenish the human spirit –meaning, Good Karma. Do not hoard money or it will leave you. Instead, share your money. An example might be offering to pay for groceries in the checkout line for a struggling family in front of you. It could also mean donating your time, which is a form of money, to your favorite charity.
Bilang isang third world country at lalo na dahil sa pandemya, the Philippines remains to be one of the poorest countries in Asia. Ayon sa Economics Experts, Poverty incidence in the Philippines rose to 23.7% in 2021 which translated to 3.9 million more Filipinos living in poverty. Sa kabila ng statistics na ito, pwede nating ibahin ang sarili nating kapalaran pagdating sa usapang pera at maari rin tayong paunti-unting tumulong sa ating kapwa.
Pagpasok ng bagong taon, magandang balita ang hatid ng Angat Buhay flagship program ni Vice President Leni Robredo kung saan natulungan mai-angat ang buhay ng mahigit 622,000 families in 223 cities and municipalities sa buong bansa. Nakipag-partner ang Office of the Vice President sa 372 organizations para sa implementation ng poverty alleviation program. The OVP’s core program focused on uplifting the lives of Filipino families from poverty which also mirrors the vision of Robredo for the country in her presidential bid this upcoming elections.
Ayon kay VP Leni, “Meron na tayong vision na kapag tayo ay binigyan ng pagkakataon, ito ‘yung Pilipinas na inaasahan natin: na ‘yung mga naiiwan ay inaakay, ‘yung mga nadadapa, binibitbit. ‘Yung mga blessed ay sini-share yung blessing sa iba (We already have a vision if we are given a chance, this is the Philippines that we are hoping for: those left behind will be guided, those who fall will be carried. Those who are blessed will share their blessings with others).”
