The sweeter the success. This is one of the new quotes I learned this year. Here's why. My phone rang yesterday while I was busy updating my website so I ran to pick it up. My office mate and team mate was on the other line. She asked me if I already knew the latest news. What news? “We passed the examination!” she exclaimed. That was a good news indeed! I remember the pain that we felt when we were not able to make it during the first try. Our mistake, not following instruction. I was not able to deliver what is being asked of me. I was not asked about the what but what I should do about a certain situation. The how. All those who failed have a common mistake. We were so lucky to be given a second chance. This time I know what to do. I tried to concentrate on what is being asked of me. And this is the result. Our several months of training was not wasted after all. Have a nice day everyone!

Everyday is a learning process. It is called life long learning. It is good to hear that you passed your examination. Your family will be very proud of you. Keep up your good work and I believe you will excel in everything you do as you got a very positive attitude.

Yes, we continuously learn as we journey this life. We learn from our mistakes too. However, I would prefer to learn from the mistakes of others but I think this time, I've learned from my own mistakes. Anyway, the result was just great and I am happy about it. This could be use for my promotion. Hopefully, he he. Thank you for sharing your precious time with us. Have a nice day!

Yeah! At last! After all the struggles. I just never thought that the year would end this happy! This is indeed a great year for me. Although only the second best year because I considered 2010 as my best year because that was the year that I was able to enter government service. I know with constant evaluation of our previous actions, we could be able to find which part we have gone wrong and with this, we could be able to identify the right strategy in order to make things right. Thank you for sharing!

ah that is such awesome news I'm really glad that you and everyone else passed and that saying is true. Even in business those who never have to work hard for success never get to enjoy it when they get to it, but those who have to go through a bitter struggle have the better feeling when they are successful. Hard Work truly does pay off. Peace.

Hi teabwoi! Yes, that is true. We cannot appreciate more of a thing that we have if we did not work hard for it. I know the feeling of success because of the hardship we encounter during the training. That if ever we did not pass the examination, I don't think I can be able to pass the same process again. Thank you for sharing!

Sometimes it's good to learn from your mistakes. I think winning is better, if you win you will learn what you've done well.

Shh! Learning from our mistakes is good but learning from the mistake of others is better. Well, anyway I am thankful that I've passed the examination considering that it is one of the most difficult examination I had taken. Thank you for sharing!

I also felt the same because we took our exam in TESDA and then we do a lot of stuff there like installing an OS, Cabling, etc. That was pretty hard because the training was a bit different from the actual test. Then after the test, our professor congratulates us for passing the exam! We're so happy that time and I thank God for being there at the time that we struggle. That was a happy experience. :)
