The Rise Of The Pinoy: How To Become A World-Class Filipino

 

All races have the capacity to be great. But it is far more different when a race, like us Filipinos, from a third-world country, prove themselves to be world-class and are able to metamorphose the Philippines as a first-world country in our lifetime. And there is a testament that we can do it–a testament to Filipino resilience from a POV of a foreigner by heart–“The Rise of the Pinoy.

I consider The Rise of the Pinoy: 7 Powerful Lessons of Success from 21 World-Class Filipinos a nationalism fully realized through a book from a point of view of Mike Grogan. I closely relate it to what our national hero, Jose Rizal, did with his novels of arousing the minds of the Filipinos and fighting by the use of the might of a pen.

 

Mike Grogan is an Irish Motivational Speaker and Leadership Coach who fell in love with the Philippines. After travelling in over 30 countries, Mike decided to make the Philippines his home and commit himself to serving its people. He believes in the extraordinary potential of the Filipino, and he is convinced that this is the generation that will see the First World Philippines in our lifetime.

 

I met Mike last year for a seminar called “Best Of You: Creating Habits That Will Transform Your Life.” I was one of the lucky bloggers who was able to join the event and experience first hand what this man’s made of to inspire people. Eight months later, his love for our country and his belief in the greatness of the Filipinos has been collated to a book that will always have a place in my heart, to all Filipinos, and especially for the OFWs to which Mike is dedicating his book.

Mike and I last November 2015. This was the first time I met him and the first day that I subjected myself to the 40-day challenge. My challenge was to be fit by trimming down my rice intake from 3 cups of rice/meal to only 1 cup. I was 97 kg that time.

 

Let’s admit it, the “Filipino Pride” or “Pinoy Pride” have been overly used when a Filipino boxer wins a boxing match, a beautiful Filipina is crowned as Miss Universe, or a not-so-well-known sister group in the Philippines made it big in UK’s “The X Factor.” We would even dominate Twitterverse with hashtags #FilipinoPride, #ProudToBePinoy, and/or #PinoyPride in many occasions when a Filipino emerge supreme. But it is quite different when such pride is not imposed by us but by other people far from the bias that we have.

 

More so, our callings may be different from one another. And our successes are different from those who have achieved immense victories in life. We cannot all be boxers, beauty queens, or showbiz personalities to measure success. But we can all be world-class Filipinos in our own respect and with our own callings in life. This is what the book is trying to give us.

 

“The definition of success is making the difference. It’s not about money, it’s not about material things, but how we inspire people, how we help them, how we can touch them, what we can do for them.” – Rebecca Bustamante

 

Hence, with the 21 world-class Filipinos’ stories that were featured in this book, we will, in one way or another, find ourselves in one of their shoes. We can either be in the shoes of a social entrepreneur, a blogger, a mother, a father, a son, or simply a gay guy who would like to remove the stigma of the people to the LGBT community and spread HIV awareness.

What will get from the book?

Aside from being inspired by the 21 world-class Filipinos and their stories, one will also learn the 7 powerful lessons of success.

 

  1. Find your inspiration.
  2. Your unique assignment.
  3. Discover your motivation.
  4. Your greatest enemy.
  5. Embrace your pain.
  6. Your daily victory.
  7. You were born for greatness.

 

Moreover, one will also learn and be guided with the 40-day challenge that I was to continue not just for 40 straight days but for  238 days. And to tell you quite honestly, this is one of the best things that I have learned from Mike and that I am sharing with friends who are asking me about it. You, too, can apply it to your life.

Mike and I during his very successful book launch last June 11, 2016, at Fully Booked, BGC. And that’s me on my 225th day of my supposed to be an only 40-day challenge and down to 87 kg.

The 40-day Challenge Result. The photo taken in 2014 has always been my weight for the longest time. But after the 40-day challenge, I was able to lose weight. It is more than the appearance that I needed to be particular with but also the health that has been a primary concern now moving forward.
