I have been working since my high school years to earn money to finish my studies. Although, I am lucky to have an employer who cares for her employees but to tell you honestly it was not satisfying but I have no choice considering that my father could not afford to give me an education.
But one thing that benefits me from it is, it changes my prospective in life. I have learn to value education and help me realize that I have to love my work.
Upon reading Mr. Armand Bengco of Colayco Foundation for Education, Inc. article from a Week by Week interview at Entrepbuff , I have learned so many insights about how one should properly use his/her talent. I was impressed by his determination and hardworking abilities that helps him to achieve his dreams.
Now, I realize that it is not just your talent that will lead your success but your ability to make it happen by working hard and most of all loving your work. I am a government worker as well and just like what Mr. Bengco says, working in the government gives you a limited chance of growing as a whole, because your just confine in your position.
I believe that there are lots of things that can help me be a better person and my current job although it was financially stable, it would not enhance my talents or a place to show my creativity but then just like Mr. Bengco said, if you want to be happy, be happy with work.”
I really salute his determination and talents too. One of his words that inspires me a lot is when he said that, “There are 24 hours in a day, so even if you have your day job, use the rest of your time for your passionate pursuits.” That is why, i have ventured into blogging, i felt that in this way, i can express myself more and I have the freedom to say and do whatever I wanted. It also helps me to become a better person as a wife, mother and a friend.
