A person’s philosophy will vary depending on one’s life experience. I believe that no two people will have seen life in the same way. There would be many people that have similar philosophy on life but none of them would be exactly the same. I will share my ideas and thoughts on what is my philosophy of life. The way that I have experienced life has made me change my way of thinking more than once, am sure it will change again. What is my purpose in life? What is anybody’s purpose in life?

That he has chosen it for before we were ever born, and that part of the reason is to be here for someone else. If I would have asked this questions three four years ago I would have answered with, I have no idea. Back then I really had known idea why am here, or what am supposed to be doing. It seemed that all I cared about was materialized through conviction and faith. I prayed and it seemed to happen. Likewise, I worked hard to reach my goals. I would live with the philosophy of, live one day at a time (cited from the book entitled: Happiness Now by: Andrew Matthews).Rushing of reaching your goals would be dangerous. Since then I have not worried of getting old because I know things would happen one day at a time. Taking my master’s degree was just a mere dream of mine 8 years ago. One of the reasons is I cannot support my sibling for his education if I take mastered unit. Now, that he is already graduated from college I have confidence to take this step as well as to profound my knowledge and be a bona fide guidance counselor. Still I know that I have to surpass many trials and temptation to be a counselor.
Secondly, I would borrow from David J. Schwartz, Ph. D. the book entitled “The Magic of Thinking Big” which says the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you may have....
