ABDOMINAL Exercise! 1 of 10

Wants to reduce your waistline? Tired of your beer belly that is protruding or bouncing? Follow this simple and easy steps to a flat and well toned stomach. No need to go to the gym, equipments can be improvised and you can try this at home by just following instructions. 

Warning!!! Consult your doctor before proceeding. 

                        Primary Muscle: Obliques
                        Secondary Muscles: Abdominals
                        Equipment Needed: Exercise Mat
                        Mechanics Type: Isolation

Proper Exercise Technique:

Lay flat on your back as if doing a crunch. Lift your legs up with the upper leg being parallel to the floor but not resting on it. Start the exercise just like a normal crunch whereby you lift your upper shoulders off the floor but in a twisting motion. Performa a "one shoulder at a time" crunch and in a bicycle fashion, bring the left knee and your right shoulder off the floor towards the centre of your body. Next repetition, switch your crunch so that your left shoulder and your right knee come closer together. 

Bicycle Abdominal Crunch Exercise:

Start Position

Finish Position
Remember to slowly but deliberately lift your shoulder off the floor and focus on the abdominal muscle doing the work. Don't aim to get your shoulder off the ground as much as possible but to feel the abdominal contraction. You should not focus on bringing the shoulder up with any other muscle group such as the neck and shoulder.

Up next! Exercise #2....


Love yourself... Love your life and have a lovelife.... Enjoy everyone!!!

7 Secrets of the Rich

by Dyan Ramos

The following are list of things that were probably not taught to many of us in childhood. Things that we regret not knowing from the start, yet we will appreciate once we start practising them now. I listed them down based on my experience mingling with businesspeople & experienced financial coaches themselves. Friends, enjoy the "7 Secrets of the Rich' :

1) Rich people believe failures are essential part of growth and success. 
It is not a few times when we have been conditioned not to make mistakes -- whether at home, school or work. Most of us grew up "afraid to fail" because we're used to have it accompanied by a punishment. The worst is people in our past used these failures and mistakes against us, that made us go for the safer sail. Notice therefore that 90% of Filipinos would go for job security (afraid to take risks) rather than aim for perfection in business . Because we're afraid of the unknown and the unfamiliar, we'd rather not talk about money and instead go on with our mediocre life expecting everyday to be the same at the office. Yet, when you think of the most successful and the wealthiest people on earth, none of them talked about a perfect journey while in the process of getting rich. Nanay Socorro of National Bookstore, Mr Henry Sy & Mr. John Gokongwei Jr. each had his/her own version of downfalls & failures before they made it to the top. The big secret therefore is to strengthen your tolerance to failure, and to get yourself educated to lower the risk especially in doing business and investing. In today's information age, almost all questions about life have their answers somewhere. Take advantage of the information technologies like the internet, wireless communication etc. to get answers and to pacify your doubts.

2) Rich people are not the smartest, they just have better money managemement habits. 
The wealthiest of men (most of them from childhood) practice proper handling of finances and allocating their income into different purposes (e.g. 50% of income goes to Necessities, 10% goes to Charity or Give Account). The discipline to stick to the habit is already within their being as they have been practising it for many years. They are also skilled in differentiating Assets from Liabilities, and in handling their Financial Statements. They know for instance that Assets are properties that put money INTO their pockets while Liabilities are things that take money OUT of their pockets. A house may be an Asset if it is being rented & you get monthly cashflow from your tenants, while it can also be a Liability if you are living on it & paying monthly dues for its mortgage. Same with a car, if you use it for business, it is an Asset; yet, if you bought it for personal use & leisure it becomes a Liability. The wealthy are skilled in updating their financial statements, means they're taking account of every peso & every centavo. For ordinary Filipinos to have access on how to start writing a financial statement, the rich recommend getting a mentor who can teach you the basics of personal & business finance. You'll discover that it really is just simple math, you don't need to be a wizard in order to become financially successful.

3) Rich people value the spirit & culture of sharing. 
In a world where most people think scarcity, the rich believe that resources are abundant and that the world is overflowing with opportunities. While the poor practice the infamous "crab mentality" habit (pulling down whoever's on top), the rich like the idea of seeing everyone succeed in business & life. You may have witnessed this among the circles of Chinese businessmen where they push each other to become richer because by then, their own businesses improve as well (i.e. they get more potential investors, people have more purchasing power, the economy gets stronger) . These Chinese businessmen protect themselves by protecting others first. The wealthy recommend an average person to practice sharing everyday -- share information, ideas, opportunities and resources to others so that once wealth is in his hands, he is ready to grow it. If one wants to be successful and truly wealthy, it is crucial that he gives up attachment to money and material wealth. The most valuable factor in your journey to becoming financially free is the mindset. It's not about how much you have now, but how ready you are for future wealth. Share what you have -- be a generous giver and an excellent receiver as well. Feel like you are already wealthy by having the "abundance mentality". The world is full of blessings & opportunities if you just look around & seek for them.

4) Rich people use the art and science of leverage in business. 
Leverage means using OPR or "Other People's Resouces" (i.e. time, money, talent, skills) to speed up one's growth in business and in life. It is indeed never new to the wealthy to define an authentic business as that with atleast 500 people working for the owner or with the owner as partners. It's just natural (a universal rule), nobody gets successful in life by doing it alone. That's why 90% of small business owners fail in the first 5 years due to mismanagement as backed up by DTI. Small businesses, specifically traditional ones, find it hard to expand with just a few workers because their income reaches a certain limit. The owner of a small business usually runs out of money or energy after a few years of operation. It lacks a system, and the power of leverage. Yet, take a look at what Mark Zuckerberg did with Facebook. As the youngest billionaire quoted by Forbes magazine, he reaches out to billions of Facebook users worldwide and leverage on them & and his system to earn $150 million annually from his advertisers. It means he can leave the business operation to his workers & the system while earning (a great example of "people & system working for him, and NOT him working for the business"). There are thousands and thousands of business ideas being created every hour at different places in the world. Yet, they are not being executed because of lack of knowledge on systems and the use of leverage.

5) Rich people think long-term. 
While the poor spend for their present lifestyle, the rich think long-term by buying Assets (e.g. real estate properties, businesses) that could generate passive income (income without work) and eventually give them time to enjoy their wealth. The reason most employees remain broke is that they buy Liabilities (e.g. a car, a house under years of mortgage) that take money out of their pocket. While the poor and middle class spend for now, the richest of people believe that the secret to long-term wealth is to "delay gratification" . Thus, they add more to their passive income generators (e.g. buy more properties, invest more on paper assets & businesses) so that in the future they could enjoy their wealth. They know for a fact that Financial Freedom means having not only the money but BOTH the money & the time. Lots of people nowadays may find excessive cash is not really that hard to earn, but how many of us can really enjoy these cash? How many can take vacations for the whole year & come back to find their income still flowing or even getting stronger? Not a lot I could guess. Like what my mentors would always say "better work your ass off for the first 5 years & enjoy wealth for the rest of your life THAN work easy all your life without ever having a chance to enjoy what you've worked for." Yet as crazy as it may sound, statistics show that most Filipinos would rather stick to job security than start a business full time. There must be something wrong somewhere with the way we were raised and the values that were instilled in most of us.

6) Rich people prioritize financial education. 
One of the biggest myths in business believed by many is that a huge capital (let's say, 20 million pesos) should be available before you can do business to enjoy the success of business tycoons like Mr. Henry Sy. Ofcourse capital plays a role in business, but it shouldn't be the first priority. If you talk to any of the wealthy people living today, they will tell you the same thing -- focus on your financial education first. Get yourself educated in matters of business. There are thousands of books written about leadership, success and getting rich (e.g. "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" by T. Harv Eker & "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" by Robert Kiyosaki are highly recommended). These authors gave us a chance to access the minds of the wealthy & what made them successful. There are also seminars & workshops being held by financial gurus & financial education advocates. Their aim is to make it available for ordinary people the secrets & the values practised by the wealthy. Take advantage of these opportunities. David Bach, an American author once said "financial education needs to become a part of our national curriculum and scoring systems so that it's not just the rich kids that learn about money... it's all of us."

7) Rich people find mentors that they could model and learn from. 
This is perhaps the most important of all the 7 secrets mentioned above. Because without a mentor, somebody won't know where & how to start. If you do not have a "rich dad" to model, the rich recommend that you search for virtual mentors (i.e famous authors & inspirational speakers) or find a group from which you could learn BOTH the mindset and the skill set to be able to make it successful in business. Remember to look for mentors who have the experience and a good track record that prove their success. 

One of the great things about having mentors & coaches is that you can leverage on their past failures & experiences. Means, you do not have to undergo the same trials & downfalls because what your mentors present to you is already the proven road. Friends, family members & colleagues who aren't experienced in business don't count.

Why listen to these people while deciding for something when they haven't even proven to be financially free themselves? This is insane, yet most Filipinos are guilty of this. Environment, no doubt, plays the most influence in a person's decision. If you want to get ahead of the business game & in life, surround yourself with people who can build you up & people you can model. True enough, if you want to learn yoga, you find a yoga coach. And if you want to learn business, you find a business coach. It's pure simple logic.

To learn more how to become financially free, and to meet other Filipinos with the same wealthy-mindset. ..

Unplog's note:
I highlighted the 7 key points for those who are not fond or reading long and winding post. Anyway most of the 7 points are self explanatory... I just have a few questions to ask:

1. For those rich people out there... I just want to know if this is really the same secret you have? Or you may want to add secrets to make it 8? 9? or make it 10 secrets maybe? (You can use anonymous mode to keep your profile private)

2.  For those who wanted to be rich, are you going to follow these 7 secrets or you have doubts and think it may not work for you? Then, how are you planning to become rich?

3. For those who wants to stay in their average financial condition... would it hurt you if for once in your lifetime dream of becoming a rich person? Or deep inside, you are now memorizing the 7 secrets... admit it!

4. And for those people out there who were desperate enough to be rich... do you honestly believe that following these 7 secrets will make you an instant millionaire?

I want to be rich!!!!!! Masama ba???

Sail Away!

Photowalk part 2...

After MOA, we set foot again on the road going to Baywalk area. This time, weather is good and the sun shines brightly towards the horizon. 

May nabasa akong quote and it goes a little something like this: "Walking becomes boring, when you learn how to fly..." Tama naman, but since I don't know how to fly yet, mag enjoy muna ako sa paglalakad. Along the way, may nadaaanan kaming point-point malapit na sa star City and since di pa kami nag breakfast, stop over muna to eat. (Nanibago ako, ang mura kasi ng bill namin)

At nagpatuloy kami sa paglalakad, till we reach Folk Arts Theater... buti na lang may bench sa gilid na pwedeng pahingahan, our second stop that day kasi umambon na naman uli. 

As we continue the journey, we found this place, a Dock area, a small pier, where you can see yachts parked on the bay side. Now I remember the quote about walking and flying... Why don't we try Sailing??? 

What do you think? Come with me and lets SAIL AWAY!!!   

What would it be like to own one like this? 


Parked! Waiting...

I smell something fishy...

Sails down...

MV... mv...

The Flock...

Good weather...


Fishing rod...


The Family...

Aye! Captain!

'till my next stop...
