Life Is A Matter Of Choices (An Open Letter To My Treasured Teammates)

(Disclaimer: To my old readers, pardon today’s post as this post is primarily intended for my former officemates and thus, I decided to write this in “Tag-lish” (Tagalog – English).)

I wrote this article on the night of February 11, 2018, the night I told the team that I was already rendering for my resignation and that my last day is already on February 14. Natatawa ako sa sarili ko sa totoo lang.. natatawa na naiinis. at the same time naiiyak.. labo no? Because I realized on this night why I wanted to keep my resignation a secret.

 

1st, ayokong makarinig ng negative things like…

 

“paresign na yan, iba na focus”…

“pachill-chill na yan kasi pa-alis na”…

“yun ohh. wala na yang pakealam sa stats”..

..atbp.

 

akala ko yun ang main reason ko… pero narealize ko talaga ngayon bakit ayokong sabihin ang pag-alis ko, and it’s because… if I heard or saw your reactions earlier, baka hindi ko na ituloy ang resignation ko..

..grabe ka JP traydor! -gab

..totoo? badtrip to… kelan ka nagpasa? -tim

.. Weeeee seryoso, cge, pasok ako para kay master JP? -roge

..talaga JP? lagi pa naman kitang inaaway :’( -noie

..pero ang sipag mo aahh, kasi nagrereview ka pa din kahit paalis ka na –gelai

..di nga mamimiss ko yan e matinde yan si JP malaking kabawasan yan tol –bibe

..Ok lng anak ng duke. Sige hndi ako aabsent nun.. binigla mo kmi –chao

.. kelan last day mo? sa 14… sakto anjan ako, ambag ako 500. –boss pete

..and marami pang iba…

 

On this night, sobrang na-iisip kong iretract nalang ang resignation ko, because I realized how much I felt at home with everyone especially with the ITX morning team. You guys wouldn’t know how thankful and happy I am for being part of this amazing team. – Shoutout din sa management lalo na kay boss Grace G. for conducting the company team building, nag-enjoy talaga ako dun kaya lahat ng activities hype na hype ako. lalo na rapelling and wall climbing.. 🙂

 

Minsan na-iisip ko, ang weird ko.. ang ayos na ng buhay ko sa corporate world. Maayos ang sahod, manageable naman ang workload, mayroon naman career path in the company such as becoming a coach, a manager or a trainor… tapos masaya pa ako sa mga teammates ko (Special mention sa mga MASTER BITTERS – walang sinabe ang mga Hypebeast mga lodi! hahaha)

 

…pero despite all these, I still would want to spread the advocacy of educating people on how to become financially free and chose to pursue a career in sales once again, kahit mukhang wala akong talent sa pagbebenta at hindi stable ang income dun. (walang allowance and pure commission basis kasi ang income ng financial advisor).

In the end, I guess, I would still choose to become a failure at something I love than become a success at something else… —-parang ibang topic na to aahh.. magbasa na lang kayo dito sa blog ko (www.skydivetosuccess.com) ng mga life lessons and buy/read my book “Skydive To Success: Time to redefine your success!” For only 250php. (nagmarket pa. char!).

 

Hopefully makagala/ labas pa tayo kahit resigned na ako.. flexible naman sched ko in the upcoming months and hopefully the rest of my life na.. lol. Pero magbudget tayo ahh… unstable muna kasi income ko nyan… though ibang usapan kung kukuha lahat kayo policy sakin comes april or may once totally licensed nako ulit magbenta ng insurance… (sorry noie aahh- ssales talk ko muna sila… Joke lang! 😀 )

 

So that’s it for the intro of this letter and now let’s get to its main point/ message na…

I simply want you guys to think deeply on why you work as a fraud analyst. One thing that I realized with my stay in the company, is that being a fraud analyst is really a noble profession. Yes, minsan nakakaumay, lalo na pag nag-o-OT. Pero think about it on the bigger picture, as fraud analyst we guys help customers receive their orders on time. Isipin nyo na lang pag-umoorder tayo online tapos ang tagal dumating, nakakainis diba..

We help mitigate fraud and help the company earn more revenue. We are detectives and investigators. We investigate if there is a possibility of fraud and prevent it from happening, imaginin mo na lang if ever sa account mo mangyari yun, beastmode ka sigurado diba…

Since the company earns, we get paid/ continue to earn our salary. (kahit sabihin mong minsan kulang– nasa pagbubudget na natin kasi talaga yun ee..) isipin mo na lang yung iba na walang trabaho, or yung mga bluecollar job employees na manual labor talaga like construction workers na nakababad sa araw or even factory workers… mas swerte ka pa rin kesa sakanila (naka-aircon ka na sa office and sure ako mas maayos sahod mo kumpara sakanila)..

Since we get paid, we are able to provide for our love ones. We get to buy our needs and wants. Nagagawa natin yung mga travel goals natin, and I think it all boils down on how you will look at the circumstances. Will you get stressed about the workload? Or will you strive and appreciate the rewards of your hard work in the end?

Lastly, since our main job description is more on decision making… Aaccept ko ba to o irerect? – We get to incorporate it on our daily lives. “Because life is a matter of choices, who you are now is based on the decisions that you’ve made in the past.” As fraud analyst, you get to enhance your decision making skills and naniniwala ako na malaking tulong yun when it comes to MAKING BIG LIFE DECISIONS as well. 🙂

 

and that’s it, I wish the best of luck to all and I hope everyone gets to realize the “BIG WHY” of what you are doing. Because knowing that “WHY” will be your motivation to become more successful as a Fraud analyst or to whatever career that you will be pursuing in the future… 😀

 

“Life is about choices. Some we regret, some we’re proud of. Some will haunt us forever. The message: we are what we chose to be.” —Graham Brown

P.S. some of the pointers here are written on my book— “Skydive To Success: Time to redefine your success!” so I hope you’ll be curious enough to buy it…. yes, minamarket ko po talaga siya kaya order na kayo. 🙂
