The Passion And The Obligation

September 12, 2010

I have not visited this blog for quite a long time already. For the past few months, I have been immersing myself to the bulks of work that I am obliged to do. While writing, really, is my passion, I still have to make sure that I have something to share and can take pride of day after day. What, then, would be the use of all these stuffs that I have written to satisfy my passion if I am not earning something from it? That may seem an ironic argument but that is the truth, the convicted-to-the-core truth of looking for something that would ever complete our day and the days ahead.

To tell you, I always feel alone whenever I don’t get the chance to write. It enables loneliness and the most radical part inside me to come to the surface and gain some ground. Most of the times, I try to get a piece of paper or hit the keys of my laptop whenever anger lurches notably closer inside. For all those times though, I feel like writing is almost always my way to get out. Perhaps, what has been created inside me is this propaganda that I can only feel at ease with my self if I can express my thoughts. And so far, I am getting savvy about perceiving it right because it never looked like a failed strategy at all.

I have also noticed that whenever I seem unable to effect anything close to a desired outcome, writing always comes to the rescue. It exposes all the deterrent factors I had inside out to the open. After exposing the same, there’s this casual sign which says, “Hey you’re back after drifting a little somewhere!”. But it truly exposes far more, it made me realize that there is something in writing that enables me pull myself out from any hole I am stuck in. With this, I have always made myself stand on guard before things could dreadfully get off the mark.

Life, nevertheless, brings us into a place where even words can never describe what it is made of. This is a juncture in our lives that even our skills and talents cannot fully quantify. It makes us fall into a deep stupor from the reality. As I describe it, this place is where God wants to convey something to us. This place is where He wanted us to look at ourselves and find something good within that we can share. And we come conscious. What is shocking and saddening after this is we just don’t do something about it. His call only received a sparse response.

As you noticed at the outset of this article, I have told you that I was out to do something I am obligated to. That was the time when I heard His call. It was awakening and instead of diluting my attention at my passion, what I did was otherwise. Instead of fanning the flames of my devotion to write, I went out to carry a commitment to serve and I have, in fact, started serving. I now feel the most rewarding kind of feeling and although I have still long way to go, I am happy to have started this and I am excited to see the most exhilarating ending anyone could ever imagine.

You have been working like there is no tomorrow. On your mind, these gnawing questions grow: “How could I have made myself work this way?” “Why have my tries went in vain?” “Do I deserve to live this way?” “Am I really out of options now?” Probably you have already stagnated yourself while watching your dreams grow sour day after day. I am going to say this straightforwardly, “Accept it, stand up and dust yourself off.”

You may have made choices which are off beam. You are but human and being so, you should stop blaming yourself and stop asking about the fairness or unfairness of what has befallen to you. All you need to do now is pull your head out from the cocoon and check on where you are heading to.  Cowering in fear is not a good idea for you to take. Life has saved something for you and together we shall uncover it as we move on.

Do not say that the fate of your business cannot be trusted to somebody. Quite a number of business tycoons grow their business merely by seeing at how people work for them. When problem comes to surface, they do not insist on their ideas. They rely on what others have to say and give much weight on them. Their task is only to put the problem at the center and simply cure the drawbacks through the insights of others. Give yourself a shot and be amazed. Outsource!

At times, people succeed after allowing themselves to stride in a trial-and-error fashion. As and advice, you must negotiate in that unfamiliar territory without any doubt on the results. Optimism is a big factor here. This is also true in respect to hiring your men. You don’t need to hire persons from an office which offers shiny nameplates or a highbrow education in order to succeed in here. Let us put it just this way, as long as you hold vise grip on the other end of the rope, you can always direct others as they grope on their way.

If you are unfortunate enough, you may experience drawbacks. Let this not dissuade you from going further. When you fail, always have the luxury of looking back so that you can analyze well what lies behind such failure. Problems may have its own intricacy but it can surely be reduced into comprehensible terms. Start from there. Sometimes, we can draw confidence from unpleasant aspects of failure. As hackneyed as it may sound, if you can survive and succeed at one occasion, the better able you can be to survive and succeed in the next coming episodes.

Finally and most importantly, show to your men some compassion. Do not give them the lowest pay for the job because like you, they have families of their own who depends on them for support. They are the ones who spend more hours in the work than you do. You may not have seen them when they work but in their hearts grow some worries in trying to do everything within their control so they may not upset you. You might wonder why I know this. Actually, my experience taught me so because like other enthusiastic Filipinos, I am selling my service too.

More information: Advantages of Outsourcing


Be like them and hate yourself

February 21, 2010

There are people who can be characterized as loner by choice and not by circumstance. Each day, options knock at your door. You may have with you the best idea that can bring your business to the plinth that it aspires to reach. You may also have the best product for your business. But why is it that you’ve been far left behind by those whom you competed shoulder to shoulder as you begin? Maybe the reason is that the option has already left you before you sway the door open.

In the internet business, you need a few good men to help you in the intensely gung ho business arena you are hooked on. If outsourcing comes to your mind right at this very moment, I must tell you upfront that you got me right. You may, at the outset, create in your mind some doubts and hesitations. You need to start clearing this seemingly vague area of your mind as it can only bring you nowhere as you go on with your business day after grinding day. You now must learn the first lesson and that is, act rather than hesitate.

I have learnt a couple of months ago that replacemyself.com gives a revealing idea on how many internet enthusiasts went into a craze on hiring Filipino workers to replace their place and stead. They wanted to free themselves from the common worries that bugged them in the past. In the beginning, the men they hired almost knew nothing about how to get a task done. They have willingly taught them and without a doubt, their men and women in the Philippines have learnt even the core functions of their businesses. Now, they’re on towering heights and mind you, they are earning more than what has been thought upon at the start.

The destructive nagging idea lurking on the mind which says, “I, alone, know this” finds no room in the internet world. You are immersing yourself in a fiercely competitive market. By competition, you need to pick up your pace. Being alone, however, does not give you a good pay-off. You don’t need to be a specialist nor do you need to hire one in order to succeed. An idea which can bring you from here to a certain point may be all that you need and with the help of other minds, you’re on your way!

In due time, you can make the efforts of others multiply for you. There are others who have now traversed a well-enjoyed course. You are no less than them and you deserve to have that same course they have taken. Before my talk would bring further, however, I must remind you that in replacemyself.com, they get prospects from the Philippines. Yes, you have read that right, Philippines. The skills and talents of ordinary Filipinos indeed transcend boundaries. They are archetype of industry and hard work. While working within the confines of their own homes, they can definitely be relied upon and many can actually vouch for that.

Today, the internet is flooded with reviews and testimonies on the facts I previously laid down. They can tell you stories on how their Filipino counterparts have saved them from worrying much as they lie in wait for the next coming day. Surprisingly enough, some of them don’t even know the nitty-gritty of outsourcing. Probably you are just like them or, in order not to upset you, probably a little better than they are.  Again, with the few good men with you, you can seize the opportunity as soon as they get apparent.

I have given you an option and I have in fact knocked at your door. Yes, you may just be new to this and I understand your plight. At some point in our lives we may need to negotiate in an unfamiliar turf and begin the task of discovering our potential to succeed in other people. Once we begin to thrive on their efforts, our confidence starts to grow from there. Others have chosen to be loners, we cannot blame them. I cannot blame you either. But think again, whether you choose to be like them or not, you are still going to make a choice anyway. To end, I am going raise a red flag here, if you choose to be a loner, you’re going to hate yourself – that’s for certain!
