Nagsusuot ka ba ng fake?

DO YOU WEAR FAKE? THE THINGS YOU BUY REFLECTS WHAT YOU THINK OF YOURSELF.

Karaniwan sa atin ay galing sa simpleng pamilya kung saan hindi natin alam ang mga sikat na brands na Lacoste, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, etc. Nasanay tayo noon na bumili ng mga tinda sa palengke galing Baclaran o Divisoria na damit at gamit na mga walang tatak. Saka lamang natin nalalaman ang mga sikat na brands na ito nang tayo ay magkatrabaho at kumita ng pera.

Bumibili ka ba ng fake na Louis Vuitton o Rolex para lamang masabi ng tao na successful ka?

This branded products or signature clothes are expensive. It means success. Ibig sabihin na kung nakabili ka ng Rolex o ng branded things na mahal, narating mo na ang tagumpay o at least ang kakayahan na bumili nito dahil you are well-off. Nakabili ka ng mga branded and expensive things because pinagpaguran mo ito at pinagtrabahuhan mo ito.

Sabi ni Jeff Bezos, ang CEO ng Amazon.Com, "a brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well."

Sino ang niloloko mo if you buy and wear a fake? Deep down yourself, you know how much would an expensive branded product cost. Deep down in your heart, you know the difference between what is real and what is fake. Deep down yourself, alam mo na hindi ka nagpagod at nagsakripisyo para makabili ng tunay na produkto. Ang sinasabi mo sa sarili mo ang importante at kung nagpipilit ka na gumamit ng fake, as if you are saying to yourself, I am poor, mahirap ako, at hindi ako successful dahil hindi ko kayang bumili ng tunay na branded product. You buy a fake dahil ikaw ay fake sa sarili mo.

Kung gusto mo maging successful, be true to yourself. Huwag mo hayaan na linlangin mo ang sarili mo na successful ka by using fake products. Makukuha mo rin yan later on, through hardwork, sacrifice and desire to succeed. Success is reflected not only in the things you wear but more importantly what is inside your heart and mind. If you want to be successful, respect other people's brand. Producing fake products is stealing someone's brand and good name and buying fake products is also stealing because you are buying stolen goods. Sino ang makikipag deal o transaction sa isang tao na fake ay mga katulad niya rin na fake.

Sa librong Midas Touch ni Donald Trump at Robert Kiyosaki, Kiyosaki said that "your reputation is the foundation of your brand. Guard your reputation with your life. In business, your reputation is more than important than your business."

DON’T CONVINCE YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE SUCCESSFUL BY WEARING FAKE BECAUSE SUCCESS STARTS INSIDE BY BEING TRUE TO OUR HEART AND MIND. (Atty. Marlon Valderama)
