how to move on, Today's Word -

TODAY’S WORD God never promised that life would always be fair. In fact, He warns us of just the opposite! People aren’t perfect; we all make mistakes and bad decisions. You may have been hurt by others in the past, but what’s most important is how you choose to deal with that hurt. When you harbor hurts and offenses, it keeps you stuck in the past. It only causes harm in your life. If you want to move forward in joy and peace, you have to choose forgiveness. Yes, forgiveness is a choice, and it has nothing to do with the person who hurt you. Forgiveness is the choice to hand your hurts over to God and let Him make up the difference. When we choose to extend forgiveness, that’s when we choose to receive His forgiveness! Today, choose God’s way, choose forgiveness, and choose to move forward in the blessing and victory He has prepared for you! TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.” Mark 11:26, NASB PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, thank You for the gift of forgiveness. Today I open my heart and mind to You. I ask that You help me understand Your truth about forgiveness so that I can be set free. I love You and bless You today in Jesus’ name! Amen.

Blog, Junrix Monter, Love Yourself, Self -

Be yourself.  Trying to be anyone else is a waste of the person you are.  Embrace that individual inside you that has ideas, strengths and beauty like no one else.  Be the person you know yourself to be – the best version of you – on your terms.  And above all, be true to YOU – if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. Starting today… Get your priorities straight. Twenty years from now it won’t really matter what shoes you wore today, how your hair looked, or what brand of jeans you bought.  What will matter is how you loved, what you learned and how you applied this knowledge. Take full responsibility for your goals. If you really want good things in your life to happen, you have to make them happen yourself.  You can’t sit around and hope that somebody else will help you; you have to make your own future and not think that your destiny is tied to the actions and choices of others. Know your worth. When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation.  Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do.  Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you.  It’s not pride – it’s self-respect.  Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people.  Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life.  Know your value and what you have to offer, and never settle for anything less than what you deserve. Choose the right perspective. Perspective is everything.  When faced with long check-out lines, traffic jams, or waiting an hour past your appointment time, you have two choices:  You can get frustrated and enraged, or you can view it as life’s way of giving you a guilt-free breather from rushing, and spend that time daydreaming, conversing, or watching the clouds.  The first choice will raise your blood pressure.  The second choice will raise your consciousness. Don’t let your old problems punish your dreams. Learn to let go of things you can’t control.  The next time you’re tempted to rant about a situation that you think ended unfairly, remind yourself of this:  You’ll never kill off your anger by beating the story to death.  So close your mouth, unclench your fists, and redirect your thoughts.  When left untended, the anger will slowly wither, and you’ll be left to live in peace as you grow toward a better future. Choose the things that truly matter. Some things just don’t matter much – like the kind of car you drive.  How big of a deal is that in the grand scheme of life?  Not a big at all.  But lifting a person’s heart?  Now, that matters.  The whole problem with most people is, they KNOW what matters, but they don’t CHOOSE it.  They get distracted.  They don’t put first things first.  The hardest and smartest way to live is choosing what truly matters, and pursuing it passionately. Love YOU. Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are.  Yes, let someone love you despite all of this; and let that someone be YOU. Accept your strengths and weaknesses. Be confident being YOU.  We often waste too much time comparing ourselves to others, and wishing to be something we’re not.  Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when we accept everything we are, and aren’t, that we are able to become who we are capable of being. Stand up for YOU. You were born to be real, not to be perfect.  You’re here to be YOU, not to be what someone else wants you to be.  Stand up for yourself, look them in the eye, and say, “Don’t judge me until you know me, don’t underestimate me until you challenge me, and don’t talk about me until you’ve talked to me.” Learn from others, and move on when you must. You can’t expect to change people.  Either you accept who they are, or you start living your life without them.  And just because something ends, doesn’t mean it never should have been.  You lived, you learned, you grew, and you moved on.  Some people come into your life as blessings; others come into your life as lessons. Be honest in your relationships. Don’t cheat!  If you’re not happy, be honest, and move on if you must.  When you’re truly in love, being faithful isn’t a sacrifice, it’s a joy. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Life as we know it can change in a blink of an eye.  Unlikely friendships can blossom, important careers can be tossed aside and a long lost hope can be rekindled.  It might feel a little uncomfortable at times, but know that life begins at the end of your comfort zone.  So if you’re feeling uncomfortable right now, know that the change taking place in your life is not an ending, but a new beginning. Be who you were born to be. Don’t get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.  When it comes to living as a passionate, inspired human being, the only challenge greater than learning to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, is learning to walk a lifetime comfortably in your own.  Follow your heart, and take your brain with you.  When you are truly comfortable in your own skin, not everyone will like you, but you won’t care about it one bit. Never give up on YOU. This is your life; shape it, or someone else will.  Strength shows not only in the ability to hold on, but in the ability to start over when you must.  It is never too late to become what you might have been.  Keep learning, adapting, and growing.  You may not be there yet, but you are closer than you were yesterday.

Blog, Job advice, Jobs -

Are you the kind of person who panics at a job interview when the interviewer asks ‘Do you have any questions you’d like to ask me?’ You might be thinking ‘Oh no, what if I ask a stupid question’, or ‘If I have questions, they might think I didn’t do my research’, and you keep quiet and ask no questions at all. When you’re given the opportunity to ask questions at a job interview, seize it. It’s the perfect time for you to show that you’re interested in the job, to find out if the company vibe is the right fit for you, and to make sure that they don’t have doubts about you and your abilities. Keep these objectives in mind when you ask your questions. But what should you ask? Let us help you out by giving you six questions to ask during a job interview: 1. If hired, what would you expect from me this month, in three months, and in a year? Jerome Ternynck, writing for Inc., recommends that you ask this question to find out what career trajectory your employer wants for your position. This way, you know what kind of development and deliverables they’ll be expecting from you, and you can gauge for yourself whether it’s a pace you’re comfortable with, or if you’d be better served with employment elsewhere. 2. Who succeeds in this position? “This question gives you ‘insider information’ about the position and the interviewer’s perspective on the organization,” says Katharine S. Brooks, the executive director of the Office of Personal and Career Development at Wake Forest University, in an interview with Business Insider. If you ask this, the interviewer will tell you about the skills that help someone succeed in the position (including “soft skills” like communication and diplomacy that don’t usually show up on job listings), priority areas for the job, as well as other information you wouldn’t get from other sources. Basically, they’ll be telling you how to sell yourself to meet their needs. 3. Can you tell me about the team I’ll be working with? Joe Konop, writing for Forbes, says “Notice how the question is phrased; it assumes you will get the job.” This confidence might play well with the employer; if you don’t think it will, rephrase it to something like “can you tell me about the team I’d be working with?” Asking your interviewer this question will tell you about your potential new coworkers, so pay attention see whether you can work within their dynamic, and whether you’ll get be able to work together productively. 4. What do you enjoy most about working here? This is an easy question to ask, and lets the interviewer share their feelings about the work, and you can connect on a more personal level with them. If they’re enthusiastic about the workplace and have ready answers, it’s a good sign. If they have a hard time coming up with an answer, it could be a red flag. 5. Do you have any concerns about my qualifications and their fit for this job? This is a ballsy question to ask, but it’s an important one. By asking this, you show that you’re confident in your abilities. It also allows you to learn what their doubts about you are, so you can address them immediately. You can explain any gaps in your résumé they might be concerned about, or prove your interest in the position, or assuage any of their hesitations about you. You’ll leave the interview knowing that they’ll have fewer doubts about you than if you hadn’t asked it, so make sure to do so. 6. What’s the next step in the process? Always end with this question. This way you’ll know exactly what to expect, instead of waiting around for a phone call that never arrives. You should also use this question to reiterate your interest in the position, having considered their answers to your questions. If the employer is enthusiastic about you, they’ll be detailed about the next steps, and might even tell you how many more interviews they have to do and you’ll get an idea of how many you’re still up against. Some of these questions may be answered during the course of the interview. But listen intently to their responses; new questions may come up that you’d like to ask. And whatever you do, finish the interview strong. Show the employer that you’re more than capable of delivering results, that you’re excited about the opportunity, and that you’d be an asset to their team. Are there other questions you should ask interviewers that we missed out on? Let us know in the comments below! Source : iMoney.ph
