Trial Commitment and Love

What Did The Kite Taught Me About Relationship?

I want to share what did the kite taught me about the relationship. When I was a child during elementary days, I love to create my own kite. The only feeling I knew about flying kite was fun and I never knew that one day I could relate and understand more about the relationship. There is a quote about a kite that said “the kite fly against the wind” and that is very well known to us. It means that you get success in every problem that you face and solved.

Let us substitute the kite with some of the ingredients of the good relationship. The kite body stands for relationship status, the string is the commitment and the wind is love that must not stop in order to keep on flying. And both of us are holding on the string.

This is my story and I only want to share this because you might find the valuable lesson. I hope that you can also use my experience for uplifting taught.

Trust and Faith

I wouldn’t try to make my own do it yourself kite if I knew that it wouldn’t fly. Even it is my first time, I had a faith that once I followed all the instructions It will be efficient and all my effort to build that kite will become successful.

The trust and faith in kite making are just like how I enter the relationship. I believed good things happen and if I just follow my heart and then success will be waiting. I have to trust and have faith that my good intention and vision is coming. Success comes after trials and your faith must not be shaken to reach your goal. You must have the ability to wait with the right attitude. I am waiting for the windy day to come.

The worst case is if time isn’t in favor of you then you might wait for too long. It is not about being happy, it is about having faith. You can find happiness from within anyway.

Trials

I step on many trials from the making and flying kite. I need to find the best materials to assemble. To launch the kite, a body must be balance and the wind must be enough. I had to run when the wind was weak just to maintain its position, but how long I’ll be running? When the kite was about to crush down then I had to extend the rope to recover up. Sometimes I needed assistance to push up the kite up. If you don’t know how to fly a kite from the start then you will never know what kind of relationship you are having. Learn to avoid mistake!

Trials and courtship are alike. You must understand first how to fly or how to make a good relationship with your partner. If the wind is love, then don’t fly kite during the storm because won’t make it if the body is weak. If the love is weak then you have to put more effort and care. The love must be enough and not too much because your partner might not accommodate that kind of love. It sounds unfair but it happens to me. Adjustment is very important to recover up and build up. You must always have a vision of success to fly and make it trough trials.

Maintaining the kite above or making the relationship stable

Steady relationship means enough wind, balance body and strong string. In other words enough love, balance relationship and strong commitment that you are holding on.

The relationship goes down without love. You know what is the hard part? Your commitments are still there; it is like the string of the kite that you keep holding on. I will not fly without the wind or without love; I dare not to make a relationship without love.

Letting go of the relationship is also letting go of the string. Commitment is something that you agreed upon from the first start. Commitment should grow while the relationship is going higher. When love is pure your commitment can do whatever it takes to make it. The love in the air will be nothing if the string of commitment is cut. Your relationship will be falling out of nowhere and without a string attached it will be hard to be found and recover back. Just move on when you can’t find a way to go back.

When you are already contented

Satisfy and happy. At the end of the day before the wind change and before I get tired of holding on the string. I felt that I had enough. We all know that there is always time to rest and give thanks. To returning back from where we came and rest. To return to our creator is kind of rest. I had flown a kite and watched them in love, faith and hope. I had experienced the relationship with love, faith, and hope but it isn’t perfect. But I am proud, satisfy and contented for accepting God’s will.

What did happen to my past relationship? And what is next to come? Everything starts with trials, you have to learn a lot from the start and accept whatever it is. I don’t want to build a relationship without a good foundation. The commitment will grow along the way. Commitment is the reason why people stay and stick with you even the love is weak or fading.  Yes, commitment is more than a promise. Commitment is more than responsibility. Commitment is the home of unconditional love. When I say I love you, I mean it for a friend, my family, and my future wife. I don’t have any purpose without love and I will live to share my purpose in life.

What did you learn?

You learn that relationship must be balance.
You learn that if love is weak then you have to support and nurture it.
You learn that commitment is how you can do whatever it takes or let go.
You learn that trials are there to make you a better person and handle relationship.
You learn that nothing is permanent, so you better getting ready to accept and adjust for changes.

While the other are afraid with fears be brave to overcome yours

This story is about the the villager who act like a ninja and accidentally saved the princess. The villager had no idea what was happen and he had nothing to be afraid at the moment.

It was a fine day off for the princes to play near the swamp. She rode on the boat and the river pulls the boat to the middle of the crocodile circle. The princes was afraid and never had the idea how to get out. She waited for the help and rewarded the one who can save her.

The villagers informed the king about the conditions of his princess daughter. Everyone who tried to save the princess got swallowed and eaten by the crocodiles. No one in the village wanted to rescue the princes after seeing what could happen to those who tried. The king announced that there will be gold to reward and be able to visit his daughter anytime.

Why should I be afraid?

Something happens somewhere at the middle of the crowded people. There was a young man as quick as a ninja and as fast as the wind blows who went over the princess by jumping over the forehead of the crocodile. He manage to rescue the princess with the breath taking moment. With an effort to give as if it will be his last.

The villagers and the knights gave an outstanding salute to the man for his courage and bravery. They were very amazed how he did save the princess. Was it because of the rewards? Or he suddenly fall in love with the princess when he saw the princess at first sight.

The king asked the young man what was really happen during that time and a follow up question "What is your first request?" The accidental ninja says, “Bring me the man who pushed me when I only wanted to know what was going on here. I did not know how successful I am today if I did not try to survive. I still wanted to give my thanks to the man who believe and trust me that I can."

What did you learn?

Some people will trust you for the capability you have. They will push you hard because they believe that you can.
The accidental ninja could die if he thinks twice. Don’t stop until it is done.

Let’s make a difference.

While others are keeping their fears of doing things be brave to overcome yours and you will make a difference.
You will never know how successful you can be if you never try.
If you think you are tired then you are almost done, don’t quit.

The Turkey Learn To Fly

One day the leader eagle wanted to teach the turkey how to fly gracefully in the sky as they do. They get together at the top of the cliff and started the lesson. After teaching how to use their wings they began to flap it together and fly. To start with! They must jump off the cliff. The altitude is so high that the turkey must have too much courage to try. When learn something new, you have to apply it and the turkey did. Not all birds with wings can fly like an eagle and that is what the turkey wants to learn. Doubt and fear arise knowing that there is a big difference in physical capability and appearance, but it doesn’t matter because they really have to try and learn.

The leader eagle find out that the turkey is afraid to jump on the cliff; he knows that they can fly but they have to try. So he pushed the turkey on the cliff like what they do on their baby eagle.

You don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. – Bob Marley

The turkey is falling down so he must flap their wings to fly or else he will die. It was the great decision, you never know unless you try to do it. Just before he hit the ground he manages to fly and does what the leader eagles explain. It is a great success on the part of the turkey, he discovers that soaring above the skies is great and have much more places to discover. The lesson has ended and the turkey are so thankful to the leader eagles. Without your help leader eagle we can never fly high in the sky.

But! Then the turkey went home walking not realizing that he already know how to fly.

Goals Commitment Reason

There are reasons why the sun keeps on shining and not giving up on us. Like the sun, we must have the reason why we should wake up and do something. I am sharing you the short situation about goals, commitment and why we must have a deep reasons. Because reasons can power up your goals and commitment.

The rich man is giving his $10 Million to you. Both of you counted the money and smells it for the purpose of making a sense that it is already yours. The rich man said that you must dig a 10ft deep whole and bury this money at night while no one are watching, so that your the only one knows about the opportunity to get it when morning comes. No one knows that you are digging for the money of the rich man to be yours with that kind of conditions. When you are ready to start digging the money, you must not stop until you get it or else the money will just be given to others.

Your commitment is don't stop until you get it.

Your goal now is to get that money and your commitment is don't stop until you get it.

The morning comes and you have to start digging the money. The crowd started to notice what are you doing and they are asking what are you doing? Of course you might answer “I am digging my money” because you know that there is money ten feet below the ground. They will laugh but you will ignore them because you have a goal and commitment to get it. And the rain start falling and you can get sick from the rain but you must finished  digging because of your commitment.

And now after the hard work! you get your goals. You feel happy and tiredness is no room for you now because you get what you want to get.

Goals give vision and direction and commitment give energy to accomplished things, but sometimes it is not enough to rely on the two, it often fail when there is no reasons involve.

Reason can change everything. What if another man offers you the same amount just to stop what you have started or stop what your are doing. What will you do if you can instantly get the $10 Million goals? What happens now to your commitment? It is gone, changed and ends. You can still ignore that opportunity and continue what you’ve started if you have the reason why.

To make a strong goals and commitment you have to have a deep reason in order to accomplish the things that you want. $10 Million is just money that you can get and have in many ways but a reason will only comes within your decision making.

This time lets substitute the money with your love one, Isn’t that heavier than $10 Millions. Your love one is buried ten feet below the ground and you must get within an hour or else he or she will die. Then in the middle of what you are doing I will make $20 Million offer double than before. Will you stop and let your love one die? Even if the rich man did not offer the same value or same things.

When your reason is enough to perform your goals and commitment, it becomes strong and unfailing.

How much is that chicken?

One day we went from a business trip to meet our leaders to teach them how to leverage their time through others. We show them how rich people use the time of other people to gain more wealth. One example is the fast food chain like Jollibee and McDonald. The owners are not the one you see operating the business but instead the crews, staffs, and manager of the store. They make money out of the efforts of others and the more they are! the more they gain wealth.

Another example is like buying cigarettes. How many are buying cigarettes right now? If 10% of 95 million Filipinos are smoking, how can sell it to them at once or at the same time? Lucio Tan did it. He uses the channel of distribution to multiply himself, from factory to the warehouse, from warehouse to the wholesaler, and from the wholesaler to store or from the vendor where we can buy cigarettes.

They become rich using the Law of Leverage where they can multiply their time and effort through others. The training is good and the people learn something that can change their life if only they find a way to apply the Law of Leverage.

This is not a true story but it shows the reality how to value things that is lost.

After the training, we traveled back and along the road the vehicle accidentally hit the chicken that crosses the street. It’s a hen that lays eggs. When we ask the owner of that chicken, How much is that chicken? The owner pauses and calculates the price of the chicken. He valued so much the hen that only few know how expensive it is. He shows the price and I was shocked to see the amount of that chicken. It’s almost P1,000,000.00 and how could this be. The farmer said, well that hens lays an egg, and some become a hen and lays eggs too. In her tenth generation, that chicken can produce over a million of eggs and I only charge it for only P1.00 and you must be thankful that. Speechless that chicken applied with the law of leverage and the farmer is the mentor.

Boat Man Story

A professor went on a research to find what culture is in the island. He ride a boat to reach the island and it will journey for about an hour. The place was bored in silence when the professor ask question to the boat man.

Do you know about Philosophy? The professor asked. The boat man answered, I don’t know more about Philosophy but a little less. And the professor said that, Do you know that you miss one fourth of your life and continue to ask more questions.

Do you know about Science? The professor asked again. The boat man answered,  I don’t know more about Science but a little less.  The professor smile and said you miss again another one fourth of your life and continue to ask more questions.

Do you know more about Mathematics? The professor asked again. The boat man answered, I don’t know more about Mathematics but a little less. The professor are boastfully high to see himself that he know everything while in the middle of the ocean.

The boat man are now afraid that he already miss three fourth off his life and one more question from the professor will be a whole life to be miss.

The boat seems to be in trouble, it will sink in the middle and they have to swim on the sea shore. The boat man asked the professor. Do you know how to swim? If not, you miss your whole life here.

Teach me Kung-Fu

The old mates at age of 60’s are fishing on the river and on the other side a kung-fu student are practicing his lesson although he already master at his level. He is so proud that he is the strongest among all the students.

After the lesson ends, the students are watching old mates fishing while they find something unusual. One of the old mates went to crossover the river to urinate, they see the old man just running over the water to cross the river, and get back after. They saw another one to crossover the river and went back to fishing.

One pupil become boastful then he attempt to try and said that if the old man can do, I can do it too, and the boastful pupil tries to crossover the river. The students were panicking when they notice that their friend is drowning. They ask the old man to save the life of the classmate.

After the old man save him, the students were asking how they can easily crossover the river without drowning, and what kind of kung-fu is that. The old man laugh, There is no kung-fu technique, did you know that ten years ago there was a bridge over there, the bridge is gone but the pole are still there where we use to step to crossover the river. If you ask us first you probably crossover easily and not been drown.

Learning from the experience of others is the shortest way to success. Following the footsteps of successful people is the fastest way to become successful.

For One Who Works Hard

One morning I wasted nearly an hour watching a tiny ant carry a huge feather cross my back terrace. Several times it was confronted by obstacles in its path and after a momentary pause it would make the necessary detour.

For the one who works hard

At one point the ant had to negotiate a crack in the concrete about 10mm wide. After brief contemplation the ant laid the feather over the crack, walked across it and picked up the feather on the other side then continued on its way.

I was fascinated by the ingenuity of this ant, one of God's smallest creatures. It served to reinforce the miracle of creation. Here was a minute insect, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to reason, explore, discover and overcome. But this ant, like the two-legged co-residents of this planet, also shares human failings.

After some time the ant finally reached its destination - a flower bed at the end of the terrace and a small hole that was the entrance to its underground home. And it was here that the ant finally met its match. How could that large feather possibly fit down small hole?

Of course it couldn't. So the ant, after all this trouble and exercising great ingenuity, overcoming problems all along the way, just abandoned the feather and went home.

The ant had not thought the problem through before it began its epic journey and in the end the feather was nothing more than a burden.

Isn't OUR LIFE like that?

We worry about our family; we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work, about where we live, about all sorts of things. These are all burdens - the things we pick up along life's path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring, only to find that at the destination they are useless and we can't take them with us.
