I believe that in this life, you have to be equipped with a set of skills for you to survive in our society. Living in this world means being competent in many aspects because there must be something that people sees in you for you to stand out and be recognized by others. That’s why, my Life Philosophy was SKILLS, BUILD, and ORIGINATE. These serves as my guideline and that is how I try to live my life. It’s very simple, and easy to understand. And these will allow me to be competent, and to have a fair yet happy life.
It is important for a person to have a set of skills because our industry demands more and more persons with skills. As the technology continues to advances, then the society will keep and continuously looking for those people that can keep up to the continuously changing technologies. But, how can someone ever tell that a person have skills? First, you have to prove yourself that you have such skills and then let all the people around you know that you are something special, that you are something worth hiring for, and that you are something worth keeping for.
If people knows that you have great set of skills, then people expects you to build something. First, you have to build a good reputation so that people won’t have any reasons to say something negative about you. A good reputation serves a key to open many doors of opportunity because who would have chosen to hire a person with a bad reputation, right? I think no one would ever hire someone with a bad reputation not unless it was meant to be an indecent proposal.
If you have skills, and you have built a good reputation of yourself, then originality comes in the way. You have to be creative; you have to present your own creative ideas and you have to keep in mind that plagiarism or copying the work of others is a big no! Make an impression of yourself to others. Give them reasons to remember your name and remember you as a person with dignity and worthy of respect.
