I have thoroughly analyzed a story of a success worth sharing. Without biases, sugarcoating and fictions. And I start to try counting. And I was overwhelmed with so many great success, I have targeted and aimed. From little to big ambitions. Its just that I least appreciate them, now that I already have them, because of more bad emotions, I choose to feel, rather than choosing to be grateful. But now when I look back, the feeling I had then, when I wanted to achieved them, there's so much perseverance through it. And that was an amazing feeling. My story maybe will look like a little to you, but its my story, my feeling, mine!

Let me tell you a story about the farm girl Meyzee.

Had I told you that, we live nearby the rice fields and my grandmother own, about, 6 units of rice field lots, which was divided amongst her 6 children, one of the 6 was assigned to my father, let says its about 60meters x 40meters in area. And My Aunts 2units was also managed by my father.

Yearly,we would plant rice twice and harvest twice. And yes, when I started my high-school and upto college days, during my summer I am also helping my parents harvesting the rice grains and planting during rainy days. And every time me and my sister helps into the the field, we are rewarded for the successful, and bounty harvest, of a coke and bread. Sometimes, Ice cream. We are very much, happy then, after a long tiring day, back pain, muds all over our body, sun drying our throats and we see a tall number of rice grain in sacks, I feel like we could live more than a decade with them. And always, the first set of rice we cooked on the harvest, it was all delicious and I don't know why! Haha.

Anyway, if we'll race in planting rice today, I'll ace. ๐Ÿ˜œ You don't wanna cry losing! Charot! Also, I had one scar on my hand caused by my first harvesting. First blood. Lol. I almost lose my sanity!

Today, as my parents cannot really handle the sun anymore, we pay for people who are willing to do the job. And now, thats another success! We used to talked about not letting my parents do the work again, because, thats a very tough job to do, I know, I have been there. Its a very simple yet I call them a success. Having been able to reduced the work my parents had done before, it is indeed a success story.

Let me tell you one of my project that I finished.

Photo taken by me

When in comes to choosing, I made sure I won't regret it I did all my best, and this is one of the proof of one of the best decision I have made. Handling people and a project or doing it alone and live comfortably?

In my first job I am a Quality Control and Assurance Engineer, in Finishing and Fit outs in a 54 storey tower. And after a year and 8 months, I become bored, my work then revolves from checking and looking if there is a mistake, defective materials, identifying wavy walls of paints, tiles alignment and making assurance that everything is on the right track and will produce a good come out, it was just too tiring. And I thought it is not what I studied. So when I applied for my second job I choose Site Engineer where I made sure I would handle people, I should have a project that I will finish. And there, my Boss sent me to Antipolo, at first I am afraid. I do not know anything, handling people, requesting of materials and equipments, quantity taking of, its all on me. Take note, I don't know anything, school didn't teach anything about it, just computation and management. Lol. All I know was, I need to finished it.

Though I have subcontractors, foreman that guided me to familiarize all, I still have so much to learn. Everyday, was tiring, from foundation to finishes. I have overcome it. I am really hands on I stay awake on concrete pouring there are some cases I am awake 24/7 and I would still go to work during sundays, because I am the one calling and deciding for the concrete orders, from rebar requests, to gravel sand to paints to tiles to roof. I am all alone. And I was able to finished this in six months! And as of today from turn over, the schools is not yet contacting me for any damages, or if there is. No leaks, no cracks report and I call it more than a success!

As of today, I have finished more projects, but this one, it leave marks. It will always be my stepping ground. It will always be my one success story.

I thought before, you need to be rich, just to be a successful person, you need to own a yacht and drink more tequila, a beach resort, wore quality and costly dresses everyday, a mansion, a swimming pool, a lamborghini, a helicopter and a vault of money.

But I realized, just having to shit on your work place's comfort room, without causing chaos, it is more than a success! Lol.

For me, it is really a success when somebody notice your actions and you are rewarded. It is a success when all the work I have done has been acknowledged. Success when you aim for it and finished it. It is a success when I climb the coconut tree and gathered free juices. I feel successful everyday I live without harming others, and publishing an article about me without getting shy and timid. Success is not relying on my parents financially and I am able to buy food for myself. Success depends on the way you perceive things and emotionally handle them. It depends on the weight you put on your goals small, big, light and heavy.

Success is big when you aim for big. Therefore your effort must equate to the result you aim to gain. But along the way, failures are always there wavering your perseverance. So you need to be strong! And you know, overcoming fears, failures are also success.

How about you what is your success story?

Oh wow indeed that is a great story about success. Our grandparents also had farms before... I think. And they had other people plant rice on the land too. I dunno what happened to those though. Was too young to know. Sadly I have never experienced being in the field. We were only taught to till the land in school and plant vegetables. Hehe.

And it's nice to know you are now an engineer. That's something to be proud of, being able to manage a project, and a school at that! Nice work!!! Congratulations!

Yong kaalaman na napasaya natin ang parents natin tru small things, a big success na yan. Paramg nong ako, nong nag birthday si Mommy, ang mura mura nong binigau ko sa kanya na regalo pero yong reaksyon nya paramg binigyan ko sya ng isang milyon. And that for me is already a big achievement, SUCCESS!!.

Nakakatuwa story mo Meyzee, sana lang may magawa naman akong mejo big for them. Pero grabi din talagang hirap ng work mo dzai. Parang sayo nakasalalay ang safety ng lahat jan sa building na iyan, aguyy.
