Scene: Early morning somewhere in Cavite. A young warrior wakes up and staggers into the bathroom.
Elmot as a modern day warrior looks fierce. He’s psyching himself up. He intones loudly, “I am good. I am handsome. I am doing great. I am rich. Today is a beautiful day!”
He’s just facing the bathroom mirror, psyching himself up to conquer the world or the blogosphere – but first he must take a shower. His neighbors are used to by now to his loud early morning mantra of self-affirmation. His loud cries early in the morning don’t make their skin crawl anymore. No, he’s not crazy. He’s just being Elmot.
That’s irrepressible Elmot in his wonderful post on self-affirmation. Says he-
…man is still man who has the power to transcend and hold himself above all…cultural chains. Start saying “I am beautiful. I am good. I am happy. I am successful.” Paulo Coelho says that whatever you tell and command the world through your speech, the whole cosmos will conspire for your passion to be affirmed and completed.
Here’s the latest about Elmot. This young uber blogger’s dream of moving into self-hosted WordPress blog will become a reality later this week. That’s the power of self-affirmation.
But before we think of the many wonderful ways Elmot can dominate the blogosphere with his WP blog, let us first honor Elmot. This guy dominated my top commentator contest last month handily. That’s already twice this year, guys. For his feat, Elmot will receive P500 worth of airtime credits for his mobile phone. I thought he’d pick 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Just as well – Jena Isle will be pleased to have the book that Elmot passed up. Third place finisher is Roy. He’d get P300 worth of mobile airtime credits.
