Week 19: Act "As If"

"Begin with the end in mind"
"Things are created twice"

Those are the lines from Stephen Covey's popular book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" that my mother will always say when she conducted a seminar for personal growth or alike. In order for us to realize our dream we first create it in our mind, from then we are guided on what to do, meet people that will help achieve our plans and eventually reach the goals that we've been planning. In the said book, Stephen encourages his readers to create their mission statement - our blueprint.

Since when I was a child, I have seen so many people struggling to meet their daily needs. We are not rich, but I witness a lot of people coming into our house asking for financial help, and it happens almost everyday. It breaks my heart seeing them dying without even experiencing a luxurious life even for a day or at least eat three times a day and go to bed without worrying what to eat the following day. With that, it's been rooted in my mind to alleviate myself financially. It's been my mission to help other people. 

Coming here in Canada is a blessing, I've helped some of my love ones and friends. But once again I am facing a challenge. In two months time my contract will end because of the changes of the immigration policies. My only hope is my application for residency but the chance is so slim to get it. Even though I have savings, I know it will only vanish if I don't manage it well. It worries me because I am going home jobless. How could I continue with my vision?

But again,  I am reminded not to loose hope and that wherever I go with God's guidance he will be with me. Recently, amidst all the anxieties I feel, I was able to create my vision. To build an empire, a business, a group of companies that will provide job especially to my relatives who are in need of job. I would like to see them being freed from poverty. 

My vision is big, but I claim that I will achieve it. It's my way of realizing my mission of helping other people

Week 18: Dream Really BIG

I've been going through some emotional turmoil in life and and feel like I have no direction to go. Then I realized I have to act and never stop dreaming though the  future seems to vague at this time.

I recreated my dreams, my goals, and my vision in life through illustrations. I know I can simply cut picture of my dreams and have it pasted in my goal book (which I did for my other goals), but drawing makes me internalize more the goals in my life that I want  to achieve. 

I believe visualization your dream will make it more achievable. It will conspire all the positive energies in the universe to make all these goals in life into a reality.

Duties of a Paralegal

Working as a paralegal often means that you are behind the scenes in the attorney's office, but you are still an integral part of the legal system. One of the things that you should know how to do as a New York paralegal is typing. You also need to be able to organize notes and keep up with all of the cases for the attorney.

 Your key function as a paralegal will be to do research on the cases so that the attorney can prepare for court. You will need to look up information about statutes and possible defenses that can be used in the case. Make sure the facts that you find are written down correctly, and if you find something that is helpful as the case gets started, you need to make sure the information is revealed. Another important part of the job is interviewing clients. You will find out about why they need an attorney and direct them as to how the attorney can help. While in the office, you will draft documents, type notes that are taken in court and file papers for later use by the attorney. Answering phone calls and making appointments for clients is also part of the job.
