"Be your own competition."

     Don't compare yourself to other people. They have different sets of skills, dreams, sour moments, and motivations than you do. You must create your own armor. Their armors were specially designed for their own battles. You have your own sets of battle so you better create an armor that suits your needs. Strive to be the best version of yourself by competing against yourself.

Ready to See Your Future?

     Let me ask you a question. If given a chance to see your future... your [entire] future, would you want to see it? You may answer me with a quick “yes” for the very reason that you want to be prepared facing your day-to-days. You may also answer me with a quick “no” simply because you don’t want to be consumed with worries and fears for you’ll know where and when you’ll expire.

     Both answers can be true for all of us. We may want to see the future for the benefit of today where redirections and repairs can still be made in order to alter the future. Or we may not want to see our future at all because reality can be frightening and may affect our current self in dealing with hopes and aspirations. It’s normal to be in doubt when confronted with this type of question.

     But why am I asking this question? I assume you are aware of this popular quote that says: 

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That’s why it’s 
called the present.”

,which suggests that we just have to enjoy today; instead of clinging on our past, move forward; and instead of worrying about our future, just be productive.
     The reason for me asking this question has something to do with assurance and security [financially].  Yes, we must enjoy today to the fullest but I would also want you to realize that time is moving forward at a fast pace. Before we even notice it, our future has arrived and there’s no turning back. Time becomes our enemy. 

     But instead of treating time as an enemy - whom we should be afraid of, let’s treat time as a friend - whom we can rely on. Instead of running against time, run with time. That’s how it should be. Time is an infinite progression. All things progress with time. We progress with time - from a cell into becoming dusts. Investments also progress with time - it grows with interests and eventually matures.

     There’s nothing wrong with having fun. What’s wrong is if you’re just having fun at the moment without having the luxury of being responsible for your future self and future family. Make this day an opportunity to become the hero that your future self deserves. It’s time to invest.

     This is Matt, and this post serves as my introduction to future financial-related posts. Let’s help each other. Let’s educate ourselves and become the future we can be proud of.

     "Start with a dream in mind."

     Dreams aren’t just wishful thinking where we just fantasize for something we can’t achieve. Dreams are those tiny sparks, which cause the motivation burning. Want something? Dream of it. Let that dream condition your spirit. Start with a dream.

"The road may be far, yet it becomes nearer
the moment you start your step."

     Long-term goals may be unachievable nor overwhelming the first time you draft them. Just keep in mind that goals will only be reachable the moment you start acting on it.

"Despite all odds, learn to stand."

     Whatever difficulties and challenges you are facing at this point, keep in mind to always stand up. Life may hit you hard several times, yet you need to stand up and be still. Show the world that your hopes and dreams are worth fighting for.

"Disturb the calm water. Create ripples."

     It's not bad to be the first to pick a stone and throe it to a calm lake. Be the first to disturb the usual calmness and create ripples. Change is something that we must seek. At first, you'll be criticized by many for such audacity. But things will go well when they are beginning to see and feel the impact of the change you've created. Go on, pick up that stone and start disturbing the atmosphere.
