Whether we like it or not, challenges are part of our everyday lives. We will encounter challenges no matter how good, smart and careful we are. It does not matter whether you are a child, a student, an employee, a housewife or an entrepreneur; you are not exempted. Everyone has to go through them on a daily basis.
Have you ever experienced being the best in a group? It is nice to have people look up to you. You feel good about yourself. It seems like you are on top of the world. That is until you are faced with a difficult challenge that is too much for you to handle. It is then that you realized that you have no one else to turn to. You have to come up with a solution to the the crisis on your own. You have to bear the responsibility for the whole group.
It all started with lechon manok (roasted chicken). Then, it was followed by shawarma, milk tea, donuts, cupcakes then frozen yogurts. These are just some of the food crazes that hit Manila by storm. A handful of people who invested in such crazes definitely cashed in some profits. Unfortunately, although there were a few gainers, there were more losers. Take shawarma for example, out of all those stores that proliferated in the country in the 80s, almost all already closed their businesses a long time ago.
Dear Present Me,
