His good interpersonal relationship skills deep understanding of the Bhutanese culture brought him a lot of clients.

His first client, Mr. Birju Sunwar, whom he met back in January 2009,still contacts him if there are clients who are looking for a training in the Philippines,

“Mr. Regie Boquio, my best buddy, is such a wonderful gentleman. His assistance towards me and the people I introduced him to is immeasurable, in regards to any matter. He is the most trustworthy, selfless and reliable person.  He never lets us down while availing training in Philippines. I must say he is our “Bhutanese Ambassador in the Philippines.

In the industry that he is working with, it is very important to know and be familiar with the client, especially their culture, tradition, and preferences, and Regie already knows about the Bhutanese, which makes him very loved by them.

When asked how he manages to arrange different training for clients, “I have spent years working in a corporate setting and I must say that that has contributed greatly to the development of my work performance. It is very important that one loves his work, I mean, you must not be after the money (but of course, that’s part of it), but you must be after the purpose of your work delivered in an efficient manner, not doing the work just for the sake of doing it, quality is the key. One may do work in a short period of time but in a not-so satisfying manner. But others do work in a slow pace but you are sure that they did their work efficiently. The secret is, you do both. Do work efficiently in a reasonable period of time. But most importantly, aim to provide for the specific need/s of your client. Just love what you’re doing and all will go smoothly. Compassion and hard work will make your work, whatever it may be, effective.”

Origin of Valentine’s Day

Origin of Valentine’s Day

romance

People exchange cards, love letters, gifts, candies, chocolates and flowers during 14th of February.  Valentine’s Day is the day of romance and showing affection for another person. It is to give honor to Saint Valentine.

valentinus

It started in the 3rd century with an oppressive Roman emperor named Claudius II and Christian Martyr named Valentinus. Emperor Claudius banned marriage because he thought unmarried men made better soldiers while married men made bad soldiers. Valentinus broke the rules and secretly arranged marriage because he thought that the emperor was unfair. He was caught and thrown in the jail. He was even sentenced to death on February 14. But before he was taken to be killed, he sent a love letter to the jailer’s daughter whom he felt in love with.  The letter was signed with “form your valentine”.

lupercalia

Celebrating the romance day originated from Roman festival called ‘Lupercalia’ in the middle of February. It was a pagan fertility and heath festival during 13th to 15th of February. During this gathering, boys drew names of girls from a box and they will be boyfriend and girlfriend for that day. They can also be married.

st-valentine

Time passed by, the festival was turned into a Christian celebration by Pope Gelasius to remember St. Valentine. Today, it is special day to express love for important people in one’s life. It could be our mother, father, grandparents, siblings, teacher or a special someone.

Choosing the Right Career

Choosing the Right Career

Career Concept

Find out what career is fit for you truly matters. To be able to do it, you should know talents, interests, values and personality.  Keep in mind what you’re good at and use it to decide a specific career for you. If the career fits these criteria, you will be satisfied with your work.

Have own decision and preference in your career. Ignore people who tell you what work you should do.

selfass

What you need to do is to assess yourself. Online resources can help you choosing which career you should choose. Also, better choice is made with the advice of career development professional. Have a list of careers you are interested and learn about it. Through research, you can have enough basic information with what kind of work is involved in varied careers.

interview

Once you eliminate careers you don’t want to pursue any further, you can conduct informational interviews with people who have knowledge about career you consider.

Many people change their minds about their career. It is normal to quit when you know you’re in the wrong spot. This is to continuously find your right spot. So better think several times until you are satisfied. Also, know your short and long-term goal. Apply an internship with the career you want for so long so that you will know if you’re really happy about it. Having real-life experience in the work environment where you think you want to work can help make up your mind.

passion

Consider time and know where you will enjoy fulfilling your aspirations in life. Your passion with what you’re doing is the most important thing to keep you contented even through tough times of your career.

Developing Self-Trust

Developing Self-Trust

“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.” ― Michel de Montaigne

Trusting yourself will get you anywhere because you can achieve anything. One must stop pleasing others and just learn to appreciate the potential in you.

selftrust

We develop self-trust by honoring our own selves, instead of bringing ourselves when we commit mistakes.

undermine

With this, it is also essential that we learn to choose the people who can help us and we distance ourselves from people who undermine our self-trust. Stick with the people who will help you identify your unloved parts and veer away from the toxic people.

Self-trust can be developed by nurturing our innermost thoughts. It is a duly established fact that we cannot control all the things happening around us, so the way to deal with them is to acquaint our minds to optimism.

honor

We develop self-trust by honoring every facet of our being, regardless of whether we approve or disapprove of that part of us.

To gain self-trust is to listen to our innermost guidance, rather than be dictated by the never-ending negative thoughts.

golda

Just as Golda Meir said, “Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”
