If you are on Facebook 24/7 you might have seen this two post about how Pinoys handle their money.
I am not promoting the books of Unleash International Corporation of Vic and Avelynn Garcia but their book is indeed an eye opener to the “masang Pinoy”. The two famous post that you see are from their book “Kontento ka na ba sa kaPERAhan mo?“
These two principles are the ones that are currently popular but the book is pack with more powerful principles that will help you rise up from your poverty mentality which if you follow the principles at heart will surely lead you out of such poverty.
Let me just explain in short terms these two principles.
Piso Yan principle is all about learning to value. The Philippine Peso is not just a mere Peso. The problem with most Pinoys these days is that we belittle the humble Peso thus we easily spend it. It may not have the same great buying power it once had due to inflation but no matter what we should value it and always think of ways to make it grow.
So don’t start saving your peso, after saving make sure to grow it by investing it with good returns.
On the other hand Kurot Principle is all about delaying of your gratification. We must learn how to separate wants from needs. In real life there is nothing we can do about our needs, they are essential for us to be alive and survive another day but wants on the other hand is well within our control.
Learn to tame your “Want Monster” in you. Only buy or satisfy your “Want” when your capacity to buy makes this “Want” of yours just a pinch of what you have already save and invested. Remember the amount of money to buy or spend for your want should be a “Kurot” or a pinch of your savings if it is not so make ways to make it so that you can buy your “Want”.
P.S. The book “Kontento ka na ba sa kaPERAhan mo?” is available at National Bookstores and Powerbooks. It is written by Vic & Avelynn Garcia under Unleash International Corporation.
