A friend of mine asked me to answer these questions that I think are the current issues nowadays so just wanna share my thoughts to you.😇
1. My biggest concern for the future is…
..is when the time comes that Filipino Values will be totally forgotten by the people. The values that made us distinct from the other. Technology and social media are getting more influential that sometimes we tend to follow the trends and lifestyle of other liberated countries.
2.Real learning doesn’t occur in a classroom.
Classroom is just one of the places where we can gain a lot of knowledge.Learning is everywhere. Real learning is on how we keep the lessons that we get from the environment, from our experiences and from the people we meet in every single minute of our day.
3. What would you rather be – wise or intelligent?
I’d rather be wise than intelligent. When you are wise you know how to nurture and use your skills and talents, thus, it will lead you more than beyond the success of an intelligent person.
4. The media controls how and what we think.
Media is very influential. We should know how and when to use it. We should use it wisely and with limitations.
5.What is the biggest effect of the internet?
Internet makes our lives easier. With just only one click we get what we are looking for. Lives are more convenient in this time because almost everything will be served by the internet.
6. Why is voting important?
Voting is important because it is our right and we are voting someone for our ownselves and our places’ welfare.If you don’t want any harm then vote for someone who can take good care of you and your place. That is why you need to vote.
7. The current tax system harms the working middle class.
Many Filipinos will say that train law is just in favor for the rich people. The tax rates are all increasing leading to an increase of the prices of goods. Working middle class are just earning enough money to provide for their needs but we cannot absolutely say that the current tax system is harming them because we are still on the stage of adapting the new system and on the shock switched of tax rates. I believe that the govt is working to be fair to all and provide the progressive tax system that would be beneficial for everybody. I just hope that people will work harder to earn money not just being dependent on the assistance given by the govt because what harms the most to people is their ownselves.
8. Why churches shouldn’t have to pay taxes.
Churches are offering public service.It would be hard to identify the profit of the church since it is a non profit organization. Those who are working at the church are already submitting their individual tax return. The donations received by the church should be use for the goods and services offered to the public instead of paying taxes.
9. Three things I’d change if I ruled the world.
First, I will limit the use of technology because we can not deny the fact that it has many negative effects to people.
Second, I will impose a law that will automatically put into jail those who are not taking care of our mother nature like those who are littering and usinh plastics excessively. Lastly, I will mandatorily passed that everyone should have a savings bank account. The government will offer for free the opening of bank account already with compensating balance instead of giving it directly like financial assistance (ex.4ps) so as to encourage them to save and manage their money.
10. The need for effective cyber security protocols.
Confidentiality is something to be protected. Technology nowadays is fast rising and there are already a lot of ways to manipulate our data and information. Thus, the govt should impose immediately an effective cyber security prtocol.
11. The world is a smaller place these days.
Technology serves as an open door to everyone. You can connect with your love ones even if they are far away from you. You can visit many places even if you are just sitting in your sala. You can shop in many malls around the world even when you are in bed. You can find friends easily. You can show to them your success. These days, world is like a round dinner table because of technology. Everything is in the table you just need to spin it. Technology makes the world smaller.
12. The more we communicate, the less we really say.
The more we talk to someone and get connected with them, the lesser we say something against and judge them because communication is the key to deeply know their struggles in life and understand why they are just the way they are.
13. The most important lesson of my life so far…
..is when I realize that God’s will is better than what I have planned for myself. I learned that everything I do should be done according to His will because it is for a greater purpose. There were times I felt frustrated when I did not get what I want but at the end I just knew that it was better enough.
14. Intelligence is not enough.
Everyone is born intelligent but sometimes our attitudes ruin it. We should know how to use our minds and nurture our God-given talents. Trust yourself and know you can. Intelligence will help you but actions will lead you to sweet essence of succes.
15. Poverty is a state of mind.
If you think you are poor and weak then you are truly is. But if you think that you can surpass all the challenges of life and level up your status in the society then you will truly rise from poverty. It is only you who are making your lives miserable. You should think positively and act confidently.
16. What characteristics make an ideal hero and why?
A hero is brave and a saviour. A true hero will lend a hand to those who are in need and help them carry their burdens. An ideal hero is someone who is willing to fight for what is right.
17. What and who is an average person?
An average person is someone who will just settle for where he is now and what he has. He is not willing to try something new and do some extraordinary things despite of his qualifications. He is not intelligent and rich nor a moron and poor. He is just contented with the things he gets from the simple acts he did.
18. In what situation is lying a good idea?
Lying will never be a good idea but sometimes we need to do it for a better outcome. We have to do it to defend ourselves. We are doing it becoz we don’t want to hurt someone.
19. Does money make the world go round?
Yes, because it drives everything. We go to school thinking that we will get a high paying job in the future. We are working to have plenty of money. Some are even willing to do illegal things and worst is to kill someone just to have it. You will live if you have money, you will die if you haven’t because people nowadays believe that you can only function well if you have the money.
20. What human quality do we need more of and why?
For me a quality that we need more is RESPECT. If each one of us will value the word respect we will surely live in a harmonious world because all other good qualities will just follow then. Respect is a way of showing admiration or importance and an action of honoring someone or something. Respect brings forth conscience and fear from our God.
