I planned to repost a speech I gave in a class about making plans. However, since I already lost the file, I will just tell you the crux of the point here: I am silent with my plans, and will be silent with them, telling them only to the most important people in my life, and that is my family.
I’m successful when I do not tell my plans. If I announce my plans, I never succeed.
My application with AEV. Nobody exactly knew where I was applying. All of them were thinking I’d be in a newspaper. Ako ra, ug ako ra gyod ang nasayod asa ko padulong. If there are significant people who knew I’d be going there, then that’s my family.
When asked, I only tell them, “wa pay klaro lagi asa ko”. These people get surprised na lang when they find out nga I’ve been accepted already.
This is also true with the Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit last year. I only told my family, and just one friend about the application. I succeeded.
Even in matters such as love life, I never told anyone I was courting somebody. When I started telling people that I’m wooing a girl, I never succeeded in claiming the girl. However, when I was silent about wooing the girl, I always succeeded. I wonder.
Now, this is the lesson I am gonna hold dearly: I won’t broach the subject if not asked.
