God is fair and he put great abilities and gifts in each of us to make us all competitive in life. We all have the potential to succeed, each in his own field. God didn't create anyone to fail forever. Yeah, learning from failures is vital key to real success but no one is doomed to fail all his or her life. That I can be sure of--a Choy's Cut you can count on.

The only problem is how to tap the hidden boldness in you, the daring to take risks and keep on until you succeed, no matter the times you failed. That boldness is often hidden deep inside, especially for those who were created with a quiet disposition and are meek and too patient. Some, on the other hand, are too pessimistic to believe--due to unfortunate experiences in life--and they can't see themselves achieving anything great in their lives.

Some get too confident and lose everything, all the while deluded into thinking what great successes they are.

We all have the capacity to be brave and daring--and succeed at it. But first, we have to do some things.

Believe it: It won't happen till we believe and grab it for ourselves. Imagine if you had a full resource of boldness and daring in you more than enough to succeed in life, just waiting to be discovered, but you never used it because you never believed you had it. You never tried. You should first believe it, see yourself in your mind actually wielding boldness, daring, and success.

Be ready to fail: Prepare to succeed but be ready to fail as well. Failures, aside from being stepping stones to success, are really powerful suctions that siphon off talents and potentials buried deep within you and put on the surface. You'll never know what you've got in you till you're tested through fire like pure gold. You transform and become tough material for great accomplishments.

Never give up: It's an overused cliche but we have to keep saying it--never give up! Even people close to you may discourage you out of sincere concern. But you know what you want. Don't let other people forfeit you of your unique success. As long as it's not sin and it's not against God's Word, pursue it to the end, even if no success seems visible at the moment.

Pursue your own success: God designed us for different purposes. Some people may have somewhat the same or connected purposes so they easily understand and compliment each other, but others are for purposes completely different. Sometimes even strange and seemingly foolish. If you know deep in your heart that God put that purpose in you, pursue it and succeed in it. You're a path finder hacking your way to new frontiers which others soon will follow.

One thing I must warn you about--never be arrogant, self-conceited, or self-centered. Success or its pursuit can destroy a person if he or she is not a good steward of life. Remain simple and meek, considering others better than yourself, as you tap the hidden boldness in you to pursue your true potentials.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
