Lessons We Can Learn From The Miss Universe 2015 Pageant

Ang Taong Tunay Na Nagsisi Ay Hindi Gumagawa Ng Dahilan

“And the 2015 Miss Universe is??? Miss Colombia!”

Sa loob-loob siguro natin nung una, “Ay, sayang!” Ano ba ang dapat gawin ni Miss Philippines para manalo

sa Miss Universe. She did everything right, especially sa last Q & A, siya ang may pinakamagandang sagot. I even made short video blog about her great performance but fell short of the crown. (http://on.fb.me/22oOVIR)

At least lagi na tayo napapabilang sa hanay ng mga beauty queens. Kung baga eh nakakahinayang man pero masaya at proud pa din.

Pero gaya nga sa mga pelikula, an unexpected twist happened sa Miss Universe pageant na ginanap sa Las Vegas recently, na alam na marahil ng buong mundo. This is a twist na bago sa paningin, na ikinagulat ng lahat, na pwede nating itago sa pangalang ‘Honest Mistake’.

Ano nga ba ang nangyari?

  • Ang host ng pageant na si Steve Harvey ay nagkamali sa pag-announce ng winner;
  • Nasabi niya na ang Miss Universe 2015 ay si Miss Colombia pero dapat ay Miss Philippines, base sa tunay na resulta;
  • Naipatong na kay Miss Colombia ang korona, nasabitan ng sash, at nakapaglakad sa crowd bago pa na-realize na may mali;
  • But the moment na nakuha na ni attention Steve Harvey ang attention ng mga manonood, agad agad siyang humingi ng paumanhin sa harap ng buong mundo at ipinakita ang cue card.

“Harvey admitted his mistake with grace and I bet he feels awful for playing with the emotions of the contestants. He completely owned up to it, showing the live audience the card, on it the words “Miss Universe Miss Philippines. We’re all human, and everyone makes mistakes, but damn, what a mistake.”

This is indeed an epic fail, but nevertheless, there is one good thing that came out of it and that is a lesson: HE TOOK THE RESPONSIBILITY and MADE NO EXCUSES.

Simple lang ang nangyari, he was man enough to face the issue without blaming anyone or anybody dahil alam niya sa sarili niya na since siya ang mali, dapat siya din ang accountable dito at wala ng iba.

Most people might see the mistake as just a mistake, but in a bigger picture, dito natin makikita ang kagandahan ng pagiging responsible and owning up to our own failures or flaws.

ANO ANG MGA ARAL NA MATUTUNAN NATIN DITO?

1. ALLOWS YOU TO LEARN
Kapag inamin mong mali ka, it gives you the opportunity to correct your mistake and learn from it para sa susunod, hindi mo na ito ulitin lalo na if it???s something major na kung saan maraming involved, merong natapakan, o nasaktan na tao.

2. IT MAKES YOU A BETTER PERSON
“Mali na nga, tapos it???ll make me into a better person pa?”

What you???ve done might be wrong but owning up to it makes you a much better person, because the TRUTH prevailed, kahit na meron kang takot sa mga consequences nito. You perfectly understand na ikaw ang dapat sumalo nito kaysa naman ang ibang tao na wala namang kinalaman.

If you take full responsibility, gagawa ka ng paraan para makabawi sa (mga) taong nasaktan mo o naagrabyado because of a decision or action that you???ve made— that???s where goodness comes in.

Tulad ng ginawa ni Steve Harvey, agad siya huminging paumanhin sa lahat at lalong lalo na kay Miss Columbia and Miss Philippines for unintentionally ???playing??? with their emotions. He even approached Pia to personally apologize.

3. GAIN THE TRUST OF PEOPLE
Steve Harvey lost the trust of people but was able to regain it in an instant because the sincerity was there. Oo nagkamali siya, pero the people saw how he handled it kaya mas dumami pa ang humanga at nagtiwala sa kakayanan niya bilang isang host.

Nandun kasi yung considerations na:

  • Mag-iingat na lalo yan sa susunod dahil sa nangyari;
  • Let???s give him another chance; or
  • Tao din yan na may pagkakataong magkamali at makabawi gaya natin

4. GIVES YOU PEACE
May mga nagalit, may mga nainis, at may mga taong nagbitaw ng masasakit na salita laban sayo pero kakayanin mo ito.

Kapag tinanggap at inamin mo kasing may mali kang nagawa, nakakatulog ka ng mahimbing at natatahimik ang kalooban mo kasi wala kang itinatago. Ang tanging inaatupag at iniisip mo nalang ay yung mga paraan kung paano ka makakabawi.

To Mr. Steve Harvey, my hats off to you for being courageous enough to admit and own up to your own mistake.

THINK. REFLECT. APPLY

May mga kasalanan ka bang nagawa na hindi mo pinanindigan?
Ano kaya ang dahilan? Takot? Kaba?
Papaano ka na-inspire ni Steve Harvey at paano mo ito balak i-apply sa buhay mo?
