As Jim Rohn said “You are always the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” People around you affects your mentality, actions and decisions in life. They can make you or brake you. If you’re that serious about making it to the top, you should make wise decisions in life and choose the people you’ll be with. I have listed some common people and behaviors that makes them. I hope i don’t offend anybody and this serves as lesson for everyone.

Social climber friends – They were the masters on how to spend great amounts of money, and doesn’t know how to make it. Most of them were famous over the internet but broke in real life. They choose to lose money over losing a follower. So you think 500x before you make friends with them.

The Royal blood – they were those tambay, tamad, pabebe. They live like kings, and make their parents as slave. They don’t want to work because they think work is not for them.  They were the burden of the family, but they think otherwise. They stick to their vices and bad habits. So sooner than you think, they will be counted among the poorest of the poors.

Shopping buddy – this is almost identical to Social climbers but they are those keen and knowledgeable for the new trends, may it be in fashion, techs or even newly opened shops! they always wanna try it! Most of the paper bills on their wallet is color orange-y and purples, but this will not stop their shopping spree madness. 15th and 30th were the days marked on their calendar, when the payslip was delayed they get mad like hulk, because they missed the on-going sale of an expensive brand.

Coffee buddy – a friend from the past, a colleague that you met only once in your life or some batchmate that you didn’t even know! they will ask you for a drink on the nearest Starbucks or coffeeshop, oh so gentle of them! But here’s the catch. You will be presented with a presentation on how you can get ‘moar-money’ like them and talk to you on how success works, how to get riches and wealth. Suddenly they became your financial advisor. But they themselves don’t have it. Talk about ‘exits’ here boys.

Mr/Ms. Kuh Ri Pot – They were not chinese. But they act like them! they always want ‘libre’ . But dont want to treat you back. they always choose the cheapest food in the menu. And yet, they don’t have any savings and always talk of being broke <come on bro?> They can be considered as the epitome of living a frugal life, and yet still poor.

Reality is harsh. Filipino’s were naturally born giver i think. They give all their sweldo away to attain that “i look Rich” status of Society. We all make an effort to please the everyone around us, and what does it make us? Poor. Our pride makes us go broke in exchange of lust that goes old and rust.

How rich are you in terms of giving?

How rich are you in terms of giving? I’m making this post not to brag. I’m making this post to urge everyone to extend their hands to every being in this world who needs help. You don’t have to die like Jose Rizal to be a hero. nor be crucified to touch lives.

We might often see post like this during our facebook sessions. Some people pity them and share, some disregard and think it’s just another Modus. This post was made by me, on a side-project im working on. It was shared a hundred times by hundred other users, but only few messaged me to extend their help.

If you have a big house, you are Rich. If you have a nice car, you are Rich. If you can afford classy restaurants, you are Rich. But, How rich are you in terms of giving? Honestly, i am a 22 year old man. I don’t have pocket full of money, nor a savings account that looked like phone number. I worked hard for my money and earn a decent amount. But your money doesn’t have anything to do with helping and giving out. Surely, a Billionaire can give out millions that easy. Because millions doesn’t affect his wealth that much. But was it an excuse for you? Always remember whatever you give to the poor people, will be appreciated much. because Poor people appreciate small things BIG. while rich people appreciate big things SMALL.

It breaks my heart when i meet the boy’s mother to hand out my little help. She was very grateful and thankful, texting me over and over to give thanks. And after i went home. the boy’s father called me over the phome, I can depict with his voice that he’s almost bursting in tears. My heart breaks at that point. I can feel that certain joy, that sublime feeling inside of me, that i can feel the joy of someones soul, touched by my little act of help. Truly we are blessed. And i hope you can brighten up someones life too, soon.

May we always be used by God to make good things unto others!
