Every Pilipino thinks of changing the Philippines, but no one thinks of changing

Every one of us we like change in our country . But we should begin to ourselves . Change in one country begin in one of the citizen. As a citizen of the Philippines we should not always see change in our government. It is better if we begin in ourselves and at home. The will spread to the smallest unit of the country .

Of course, we want to see changes! its about time we see a better Philippines. we dwell too long already, and i guess we deserve to feel a better country... improved... and the not so third world feeling. I would like to think that for the people who wants change, they too are starting with themselves. there are too much awareness now everywhere. I know we'd be better off with the president we have now and people did start the change by voting the best person they think for our leader. it should be a great start...

This is absolutely true. Imagine a Philippines where its citizens live peacefully and harmoniously. This would really be a great place. Let us start changing from the basics, from the simple following of traffic rules, to cleaning your own surroundings, to getting involved in your own community activities, etc.

I guess you are right. People should change first themselves then their family and friends. And to spread the change to other areas. I guess the saying " It is harder to do what you say" applies.

For the Philippines to be a better country, it's citizens should change their wicked ways. The citizens should not only rely on the government. They should also do their part in making the country a better place for everyone. And by saying a better place, it means improving all the aspects of nationhood, so that there would be a holistic development for all. Happy MyLotting!

It seems one helpful habit is to learn transferable skills. When things no longer work as they used to, we can use our transferable skills to find alternative solutions. For instance, we may opt to change our career and we can use new skills that may also apply. What do you think?

i agree on that.but what we have now is deeply embedded in us.it is very difficult to pry it out and change it with a new one.i really hate it when politicians puts on a speech on t.v.,beautifully crafted but lacks action.we have alot of rules and regulations but no-one is enforcing it.

If change is what you want, you should start with yourself. You can't expect your country to change the habits of a life time if you're not willing to change. Consider, though, if that change is for the best.

Most Filipino people dream of changing the Philippines for the better but to the extent that people rely everything for the government to initiate the big move. I think if we're very serious about it. Big Change comes to small packages.We must do the change in our own self and our own space, helping to build a better nation.
