I know that you have heard this words a thousand times and will keep on hearing it till the end of time. I challenge you to stop for a moment and think about this, “Has any change/s in your life had affected someone you know for the better?” if it does, then I would say that changes is a successful change.“People can both desire and fear change,” says motivational speaker Francis Kong. “What we need to do is to learn how to let go of our fear of change.” Kong adds, “If we want to consciously bring about change for the good, then that change has to be envisioned and planned.” “Change is not that hard to achieve,” says personal finance expert Randell Tiongson. “It’s really just a matter of adapting a system that works for you. We could be looking to accomplish personal, financial, professional, or social change. Keep in mind that change can be a positive force and that we need to actively take steps to make things happen.”
Hubert Young, owner of the UCC Coffee concept shops in the Philippines, decided to bring together the beacons of change to help him create that vision logbook. With the theme “Positive Change and Planning for Change,” the UCC Vision Logbook aims to impart the knowledge of change and practical information to bring about positive change throughout the year.“This vision logbook we came up with isn’t just a vision logbook,” says Young. “It is something useful for individuals who want to see change in themselves and in their social environment. It is innovative and relevant.”
The UCC Vision logbook includes 2011 and 2012 calendars and contains various useful modules such as a travel vision logbook, conversion tables, notes, and Francis Kong stories, tips, and quotations. This can be claimed after a UCC customer accumulates P 5,000 in UCC Coffee Concept Store receipts. Promo period (December 15, 2010, to February 28, 2011).
The good thing of all this changes is that 5% of the proceeds from the UCC Beacons of Change Vision Logbook program will be donated to Christ’s Commission Fellowship, a movement with outreaches for ethics and values formation for government, outreaches for prisoners, street children, cancer and substance abuse patients, and other sectors of society.
The program is a way for UCC to enable some of our country’s top beacons of change to help others become themselves beacons of change, one day at a time.
