It has been warm over the past couple of weeks. FB messenger inboxes are filled with holiday greetings and wishes. Everyone’s Facebook timeline is flooded with Christmas greetings and New Year wishes, not to mention the chain messages like the flashy, colorful, blinking “Happy New Year” that have circulated our inboxes.
It feels good to see friends and relatives wishing you to have a PROSPEROUS new year. It makes us feel loved and excited for the coming year. It makes us hope for a better life as another year starts.
Wishing, Dreaming, Hoping is good but let me bring in a little bit of a Reality Check
Here’s A Fact
After the New Year hang over, only a few number of people, a tiny percentage of those who are dreaming now of having a better year will experience a PROSPEROUS 2019.
Not because they’re smarter than everyone else, but they do things differently.
How To Rewrite Your Financial Life Differently
According to Lloyd Labso, MD The founder of digitalstartuptoolkit, to have different results, you should start doing things differently because by doing things differently, successful people get different results.
These are the 3 things that you can start doing differently: learn, apply, copy.
Let’s see below how these work.
1.LEARN – Invest in your own education
One thing successful people love to do is they invest in their own education through books, courses, online programs, and even seminars.
Unfortunately, most people will not even spend P500 for a book. But they’ll spend thousands of pesos to have a nice pair of shoes, or new hand bag, a mobile phone.
Locke’s theory of Tabula Rasa said we are born with a blank slate mind. Therefore, no one is born with the knowledge of how to get rich. This knowledge is accumulated in our brain depending on what we keep feeding it our entire life.
Walang ipinanganak na magaling nang mag-tipid, mag-invest, at magnegosyo.
And this is what most people couldn’t get.
Wealth is not being air dropped or is being rationed. It has to be the result of what we have worked for.
2.APPLY – Apply what you’ve learned
The most successful people keep on educating themselves and applying what they’ve learned.
We are often enveloped with FEAR.
We fear to fail and to be ridiculed. We fear to lose.
One of the many reasons why my students don’t speak in class is the fear that their answers are wrong, the fear that their pronunciation might not be right and their classmates will laugh at them.
One of the many reasons why you aren’t investing yet is the fear to lose your money, the fear that you don’t know what you’re doing. But if you start applying what you’ve learned one step at a time, you’ll eventually get there.
The thing that most people cannot get is, the more errors you make the more ‘eureka’ you will take.
When I started investing, I did several wrong investing decisions. Did I lose money? Yes, I did lose a tiny percentage of my stock portfolio but by losing, I have gained. By following my role model, I have gained even more.
3. COPY – Choose A Role Model
There are already so many successful people ahead of us that we can follow. So, you basically, copy what other successful people do.
But sometimes PRIDE gets in the way so we don’t ask for help thinking that we can figure things on our own and we are better than those who have already succeeded.
While that may be true, how long will it take you to figure things out on your own?
Every successful people I know have their own role model, and most of them asked mentorship from their role models. They do these through reading their books, following their blogs, attending their seminars and copying their worthwhile habits.

3.Make a monthly budget and include financial education
