My Own Corporate 101 Learning 1

dscf2023.jpgSometimes, being in a management position at the age of 30 can cause you many great things, always be teaching you stuff in the corporate world. Some may be the good stuff while some can be the rough stuff. (Yes, clearly there are people who are younger than 30 and yet within the management team and who are doing really great, but believe me, sadly it’s not easy when you’re an expat and a Filipino. Or at least based on my experience)

But for one reason or another, regardless your age, never disregard the value of yourself just for the sake of keeping your so-called “designation”. Your self-value is not about the job title you hold. It’s how you are at work.

Being away from home for the past 8 years, having no one from my family with me has taught be a lot in life. From enduring your own physical pain, because you fear the expense of medical procedures or simply because you don’t want to make a big deal out of it. Or those times at work where political games are being played, yet you couldn’t speak up fearing to lose your job. Let’s not forget to mention the fact that you miss being with the family from time to time, after all, family is home.

Enough of the slight, back-story.

Let me share with you a recent learning.

You can show-off your full capacity and talents when you recently join your new company. One way or another, you can never be too sure if you will be appreciated or not. Let’s face it, sometimes, people tend to look into where you are from before they acknowledge the things you have done or will be able to do. In which we can never hide that there are a lot, and I mean a lot that will only rely on where you are from before they determine what you deserve in return of what you have laid down on the table.

True, there’s a million jobs for you out there. It may take some time for you to find what really is for you, but in whatever case, never let go of your own values in life and for yourself. No one will give importance to you in the corporate world unless you, yourself will do so.

 

If you forget everything, I’ll pop up out of nowhere. Like now. And I’ll hit on you. You won’t be able to turn me down. We’ll start anew every day. Like permanent dating

If someone we value so much forgets most of the things you’ve gone through. Why give up reminding them how much those times that you cherish so much? Those times that thought you a lot to be a person that you are by now.

In reality, it takes more than courage to face that certain challenge there is in this movie. In reality it takes

  • LOVE for your partner and for yourself to help you start.
  • FAITH in God & in the love you have for the other person to take risks
  • HOPE for the relationship to get up after each failure
  • PATIENCE in waiting for you to attain the goal you have set.
  • then comes the COURAGE not to show how much you’re hurting. not to show how all that is happening is breaking you into pieces
