1. “I Don’t Know Where to Start”
Just because you don’t know where to start doesn’t mean you can’t start.
You may want to read that sentence again.
What I’m pointing to is the fact that if you feel inspired, or drawn, to do something, you can always take the next step. The only thing holding you back is a thought that you believe in.
2. “I Have Too Many Interests”
Most people are multi-passionate. We all have buckets and buckets of ideas, interests, and passions.
The problem is thinking that you have to choose the right one. Or even thinking that you can choose the right one.
Your job isn’t to predict the future, or make sure things go well. Your job is to test the idea you’re most drawn to, and see what happens.
Instead of being a seer with a crystal ball, look at yourself as an experimenter with questions.
3. “I’m Not Good Enough”
Not being good enough is a thought that you entertain.
Having the thought doesn’t make it so. If you have the thought of not being good enough, it doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough.
The same holds true when you think that you don’t have anything special to offer the world. What matters is what you feel drawn to do. What your heart calls you to do.
If you feel drawn to write, write.
If you want to paint, then paint.
You may not be the best in the world, but then again, that’s another sign to start. How are you going to learn unless you start?
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announces that 1,107 out of 5,540 passed the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination given by the Board of Accountancy in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan De Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo and Legazpi last July 2014. The results were released in three (3) working days after the last day of examination.
The National passing rate is 19.98%.
First Takers: 591 (or 20%) passed out of 2,830 examinees
Repeaters: 516 (or 19%) passed out of 2,710
Total Passers: 1,107 (19.98%) passed out of 5,540
Simply stated, 2 out 10 takers passed the board exam.
What would this low passing rate mean?
Is the relatively low passing rate due to new set of Board of Accountancy?
Professional Regulatory Board of Accountancy was composed & headed by Joel L. Tan-Torres as Chairman, together with the board of members; Gerard B. Sanvivtores, Betty C. Siy-yap, and Eliseo A. Aurellado. All of the new members of the BOA have been part of the largest professional services firm in the country, SGV & Co. (a member practice of EY). Aside from Gerard B. Sanvictores, who is currently a partner at SGV & Co., all had part way from SGV & Co. and already have their own role in various companies.
Some said that BOA is trying to make a statement on the first exam they conducted. Perhaps, BOA wants to convey that they will become stricter as to CPA Board Examinations and they are pretty much serious in producing top notch CPAs for the country. Or are they trying to impress the public that the CPA board exam is still the one of the hardest licensure examination in the country?
Back to the old days
Could this mean that the passing rates will be back to 10-20 percent? Back to the old days, this 19.98% passing rate is considerably high already. Almost 20% passing rate was already considered a generous number. During the recent years, the national passing rate did not fall below 30%. Back to 90s, only 12-15% of the takers passed the board exam. Would this become a new trend for passing rates? This has yet to be seen on the next examinations.
queued, at a sleepover!
They say the war was terrible. That the rest of the world was destroyed. Our founders built the wall to keep us safe, and they divided us into five groups - factions - to keep the peace.
Sooner or later, almost everyone is hit by some type of tragedy. That includes people who seem to have everything. The question, then, is not whether you will face adversity but how you will react when you do. For instance:
I. What if you lost all your possessions in a natural disaster?
- Try to focus on what you still have rather than on what you lost.
(“Even when a person has an abundance, his life does not result from the things he possesses." -Luke 12:15)
- Rather than become self-absorbed, use your experience to comfort others.
(“There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving." - Acts 20:35)
- Pray to God for practical wisdom to deal with your circumstances.
(“Pay attention to the prayer of the destitute.” -Psalm 102:17)
II. What if you were diagnosed with a life-threatening illness?
- Maintain a positive viewpoint.
(“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit saps one’s strength." -Proverbs 17:22)
- Build hope in order to endure
- Recognize God’s concern for you as an individual.
(“Do not be afraid, for I am with you." -1 Peter 5:7)
III. What if you lost a loved one in death?
- Grieve over your loss.
(“There is a time to weep." - Ecclesiastes 3:1,4)
- Avoid isolating yourself.
- Remain calm if someone says painful words. These might includes expression such as “It was for good”.
(“Do not take to heart every word that people say." - Ecclesiastes 7:21)
- Learn the truth about the condition of the dead.
(“Dead are not suffering." - Ecclesiastes 9:5)
