For a Better Way to Live

Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts. Never fret at any imperfections that you fear may impede you progress. Remind yourself, as often as necessary, that you are a creature of God and have the power to achieve any dream by lifting up your thoughts. You can fly when you decide that you can. Never consider defeat again. Let the vision in your heart be in your life's blueprint. Smile!

Ever wonder why Helen Keller despite of being blind and deaf has been so successful in life plus the fact the she moved life is one of the greatest achievement she had offer to the world? If a blind and impaired like her made a splash to humanity, why can't you? I have also been asking myself about this every day.

Yeah, why can't I?

Who's stopping me?

Nobody else – but me!

Hundreds and even thousands of great thinkers dead or alive have been saying that “what you are is the result of your own thoughts.” You are what you think.

One preacher I heard said that we are actually swimming in the oceans of blessings everyday we're just insensitive about them.

Yeah, true!

In fact, mourning about your problem is an unnecessary action for it to be solved because after all what do you get in return – more problems, right!

What do you do? Confront it as soon as you can, face it as bold as you can.

How do you do it? First, be thankful that you're still alive despite the problems; you still have the chance to solve it. Be thankful for all your blessings every day. Just by waking up in the morning is a great opportunity nobody else in this world could give – but God alone.

Second, again more often than not, you cannot solve your problems alone – in fact somewhere else in the world someone might be willing to take your place to solve your problem – unfortunately most of them are dead.

Tune yourself to always be receptive to everyday blessings – even if it's raining. There is always a seed of good in everything that's going on here.

If you were living in war or even post war at the time of Henry Sy perhaps all you will see is the war itself and be immobilized by it. But Henry looks the other side of the coin – opportunities.

His SM malls are one big solid evidences of his brilliance under pressures. Henry went on supplying shoes for American GIs at the time of war – and that is where his ever awed business came.

Hey, where in the world would you find business in times of war? But he did.
