The Most Successful People in the World

3:10 AM gem 0 Comments

In one of the I Lead Trainings that I have attended, our facilitator Jopet Pedroso said that the most successful people in the world are none other than the kids- Its because they always get what they want. 

Yeah. I could not agree more. Kids are very persistent. They wouldn't stop even if their parents tell them the big NO. They will continue crying, and give tantrums until they get what they want. But other than that, they make life easier to live in. Children do not have issues, they do not create issues. They do not have suspicion and do not hold grudges. And more to that, kids are always happy. They might cry because you didn't buy them a balloon but if you point them to another toy- they'll immediately shift their mood and be happy again. 

If kids are the most successful people in the world, then don't you think all of us should look back and check these qualities that I have mentioned and then maybe, we'll get close to achieving our most desired goals. 



When I was 8 years old, I have this favorite song that I have memorized by word, tune and by heart. I can vividly remember myself listening to this song on auto repeat while I sing and dance at the same time. Me and my sisters, and my cousins would dance to this song every Sunday, which was our reunion day. I happen to, out of the blue, hear this song in Youtube again. And then, it hit me. Wasn't it nice to remember how we all were as kids? I recall previous blog entries of mine complaining about life and how it was easier to be a child. But listening to this song brought me back to how I was when life was easier. And that is how I should be if I want to enjoy life. 

To be successful, we must go back to our child-like qualities. And my decision to pursue what I want is a big step. This song says it all- about being a child at heart; about doing what you want in life no matter what. Its in the 80's era right- but we're talking about music here and the message it conveys. Thus, I am so thankful to Debbie Gibson for this song. You inspired me again to be who I really am, pursue what I want.

"They say my hopes will not come true, but I'm taking a chance because we only live once..."

"There are no guarantees but if it means there's even a possibility. Then I'll give up whatever it takes..."

"If you say jump, I'll say how high?
If you say run, I'd run and fly
Just for the chance, just for the moment should the moment pass us by."

Put your childhood mode on and hopefully this song will also remind you to go for what you want- be happy and let's live a stress free life. All we need to change is our outlook and our response to events and all will be fine. 



Debbie Gibson We Could be Together Lyrics:
[Verse 1:] 
If I were an only child
I would be a lonely child
but baby we´ve got nothing to lose
I´m standing tall in my own shoes
I´ll take this chance
I´ll make this choice
I´ll right this wrong
I´ll raise my voice
if it means
We'll be together
for a while

[Verse 2:] 
I have never had a doubt
But for you I´ll take time out
I´ll push his love far away from me
and then I´ll be completely free
I´ll give up my security
for just the possibility
that we could be together
for a while

[Chorus:] 
If you said
"Jump!" I´d
say "How
high?"
If you said
"Run!" I´d run
and fly
Just for the chance
Just for the moment
Should the moment pass us by
and if you ask once
I´ll tell you twice
I´ll ignore the world's advice
if we could be together
for a while

[Verse 3:] 
I am taken by your strength
I´ve thought about it at great length
I thought that I was happy now
but there are things that I found out
Happiness means greater things
I´ll sit here 'til that
telephone rings
then we could be together
for a while

[Chorus] 

[Bridge:] 
Wait'll I tell my guy
(wait'll I tell)
Wait'll I tell my other friends
They'll all think I´m crazy-
and ya know what?
That depends...
'cause I´m crazy in love
with you
and everyone's best won't do
They'll say my hopes
will not come true
But I´m taking the chance
Because you only live once-
Only live once (only live once)

And...

If you said
"Jump!" I´d
say "How
high?"
If you said
"Run!" You know
I´d fly
Just for the chance
Just for the moment
Should the moment pass us by
and if you ask once
I´ll tell you twice
I´ll ignore the world's advice
if we could be together
for a while

[Bridge:] 
There are no guarantees
but if it means
there´s even a possibility
then I´ll give up whatever it takes
I know I´ve made some mistakes before
It may be just another closed door
But we could be together
for a while

If you said
"Jump!" I´d
say "How
high?"
If you said
"Run!" I´d run
and fly
Just for the chance
Just for the moment
Should the moment pass us by
Ask me once I´ll tell you twice,
You know I´ll ignore
the world's advice
if we could be together
for a while

[Chorus] 

Don´t you know that we
could be together
for a while.
