others boosts happiness. It increases life satisfaction, provides a sense of meaning, increases feelings
of competence, improves our mood and reduced stress. It can help to take our minds off our own

let us help build our home first before building others'.

to do his social responsibility.
Jose Rizal had known this, and for him, the people are duty-bound to be involved in the task
of good government. In one of his writings, he said: “Peoples and government are correlated and
complementary, an aimless government would be an anomaly among a righteous people, just as
corrupt people cannot exist under just rulers and wise laws. Whatever social and political
environments we are in are products of men’s deliberate choice.” As Rizal emphasized: “There are
no tyrants where there are no slaves.”
6. How can you do your share of “serving others”? Explain your answers fully.
We could help others everyday by doing simple things, it doesn’t need to be in a big way. Helping

greater things. We should always give a hand to the needy and ask for help if need. The greater the people
who are working the best the result.

Giving help to others should be the intention of our hearts that we wont be anticipating
something in return.

Fate can be renamed as predestination, fatalism, or resignation, which all denotes man’s
inability to do anything that, would change his course in life. Believers in “fate” feel that
God has ordained a specific thing to happen, and it is going to happen.
Faith is the ability to believe in something that is a concept, but you may not be able to se it

you won’t have the faith to see God’s Kingdom come not only in your life, but in the lives
of those around you.

Rizal believed in God, he pounded this belief in his letters to Fr. Pablo Pastells which goes:
“I believe firmly in the existence of God the Creator…I firmly believe in His wisdom, His
infinite power (my idea of the infinite is so limited), His goodness manifested in the
marvelous creation of the universe; in the order that reigns in His creation; His magnificence
that overwhelms my understanding; His greatness that enlightens and nourishes all. His
wisdom is so great that it humiliates human reason and makes me dizzy with vertigo for my
own reasoning is imperfect and confused. Many times my reasoning leads me to raise my
eyes to Him. I believe Him to be in the immense system of planets, in all the aggregation of
nebulae, that bewilders and stretches my imagination beyond my comprehension that I am
filled with dread, awe and bewilderment and leaves me dumb with wonder”
4. Suggest specific activities or programs that could help restore the Filipino’s pride in themselves.

Recollection, as understood in respect to the spiritual life, means attention to the presence of

is alone with God.

Activity 18: Win-win Attitude
Direction: Follow the instruction and write your answer in the space provided.
1. Differentiate win-win, lose-win, and lose-lose ending of negotiations involving two or more
-In a Win-Win scenario, both parties end up, at minimum, within their target ranges. This could simply be reaching a
fair middle ground that both parties benefit from, or it could mean finding a creative new solution that improves the
position of both parties. Frequently in a win-lose scenarios, both sides have attempted to win, without much regard
for the outcome of the other party. Both parties may have come into the the negotiation with a desired goal and a
"walk away" point. In a win-lose scenario, one party falls within this target range (or even exceeds it) and the other
party falls below their target range.
Notice that win-lose outcomes occur when the losing side can be pushed below their “walk away” point. This can
happen when the losing side doesn’t know what their best alternative is to reaching an outcome in the negotiation,
or where they keep negotiating against their own interest. Many other factors, like coercion and asymmetric
information can also lead to win-lose outcomes. In a Lose-Lose scenario either both parties concede bargaining
positions outside their target ranges. If the negotiators fail to reach an agreement, both parties may end up in worse
positions than when they started the negotiations, this is often included as a lose-lose outcome.

Activity 19: Leadership: A must for Nation-Building
Direction: Follow the instruction and write your answer on the space provided.
1. Define the term “leadership”
-Leadership has nothing to do with seniority or one’s position in the hierarchy of a
company. Too many talk about a company’s leadership referring to the senior most executives in the
organization. They are just that, senior executives. Leadership doesn’t automatically happen when you
reach a certain pay grade. Hopefully you find it there, but there are no guarantees.
Leadership has nothing to do with titles. Similar to the point above, just because you have a C-level
title, doesn’t automatically make you a “leader.” In all of my talks I stress the fact that you don’t need a
title to lead. In fact, you can be a leader in your place of worship, your neighborhood, in your family, all
without having a title.
Leadership has nothing to do with personal attributes . Say the word “leader” and most people
think of a domineering, take-charge charismatic individual. We often think of icons from history like
General Patton or President Lincoln. But leadership isn’t an adjective. We don’t need extroverted
charismatic traits to practice leadership. And those with charisma don’t automatically lead.

2. Enumerate the qualities of a good leader

-Honesty -Ability to delegate

Communication -Sense of humor
Confidence -Commitment
Positive attitude -Creativity
Ability to inspire -Intuition
