In a typical experiment, Dr. Dweck takes young children into a room and asks them to solve a simple puzzle. Most do so with little difficulty. But then Dr. Dweck tells some, but not all, of the kids how very bright and capable they are. As it turns out, the children who are not told they’re smart are more motivated to tackle increasingly difficult puzzles. They also exhibit higher levels of confidence and show greater overall progress in puzzle-solving.

Our family has a lot to be thankful for this year!
-I passed the architect’s licensure examinations.
-My brother, Emmanuel, graduated with a degree in business administration- major in marketing.
- My youngest sister, Maria, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and is now taking up her Masters, also in Psychology.
-Our youngest, Sami, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Radiologic Technology and will soon be taking the licensure exams as well this December.
on the non-academic side:
-Até Steph is pregnant with her second baby, this time hopefully a girl- according to the couple.
Here’s a peek at the Celebration tarp we’ll be posting in front of our house this august for our in-house fiesta. woohooo!! :)
I remember being 10 years old and waiting with my family at the old Hong-Kong International Airport forour connecting flight to NAIA. A Fil-Am commuter asked my Dad, “Are all these children yours? How do you manage?” With a hearty smile my Dad replied, “By God’s grace, Sir. We get by.”Unexpectedly, the man snapped back saying(In Filipino),
“Ugh! Diyos,Diyos…yan ang dahilan kung bakit naghihirap ang Pilipinas eh. kaya ako nag-migrate sa states” [God, God…that’sthe reason life is hard the Philippines and so I migrated to the states.”]
My Dad just smiled back and repeated , “By God’s grace, Sir. We get by…” I remember being intimidated by the big man in his coat and tie. He , indeed, looked wealthy.He looked wealthy but he was travelling alone. I looked at my dad. He was wearing a tie too but his sleeves were rolled up comfortably while holding a stack of all our passports in his hand”. A simple scene but one of my first lessons about wealth.

Dad and us circa 1992. I still can’t believe that this picture is 20 years old… my ate(older sister) Roswitha’s missing in this shot.
I’m reading john maxwell’s “developing the leader within you” now and came across a quote: ” YOu can love a person without leading them but cannot lead a person without loving them.”
I thank God for my dad, though he isn’t perfect,but he modeled to us both love and leadership. Godbless you with long life, Pa. :)
(im the kid with the missing front teeth.) haha
