Category Archives: Personal Growth and Development
MAD’s Workshop is the new name of my other YouTube channel, the same name I adopted for my Facebook page, websites, and other social media platforms I am using. A workshop is a place where artists and artisans go to either create or hone their skills. My YouTube channels and websites are my workshops.
This channel features my creative and academic works in English and Filipino. It is also one of the platforms I am using in sharing my expertise as a teacher as well as my experiences as an expat working and living in South Korea. I also post here videos of my lectures in subjects I teach and video recordings of my talks/speeches in seminars/conferences where I get invited as speaker/discussant/lecturer.
I have varied interests – language, literature, education, educational management, social sciences, research, and personal growth and development. I write stories, poems, essays, plays, academic and sports articles, movie reviews, and social commentaries. I also create videos for some of my written works in English and Filipino. They are the ones I publish on this channel. I also publish here the same videos I post on my other YouTube channel – “The Road to Self-improvement.”
THE ROAD TO SELF-IMPROVEMENT
After 365 days, my first YouTube channel – “The Road to Self-improvement” – attracted 366 subscribers only.. I would love to have more but my goal for putting up the channel is not to have as many subscribers as possible but to advance one of my advocacies – SELF-IMPROVEMENT.
My goal with this channel is to make an appeal to viewers to embrace self-improvement as a way of reaching their full potential. I do believe that people will achieve success, have good overall health, and find happiness only when they become the best version of themselves. To strive to be the best one can be is a perfect duty toward oneself, family, and country.
I strongly believe that self-improvement is a prerequisite for national development. Only when citizens succeed in their personal undertakings and professional endeavors that they can contribute to the betterment of their country. The goal in the pursuit of personal undertakings is achieving good health, success, and happiness. For professional endeavors, it is to succeed in either work or business… or both. When people achieve their goals in both their personal undertakings and professional endeavors, there is no way for a country to go but be peaceful and progressive.
Some of my videos are delivered in Filipino because I intend to reach out to more of my countrymen and help raise among them an awareness of the importance of self-improvement.
What Makes You Happy?
A lot has already been written about happiness. Much has been said about how to achieve it and where to find it. It is my hope that the things I shared in this video would give you additional insights on the topic.
