#LiveBrighter Series with Jonathan Yabut for SunLife PH


The very first time I met Jonathan Yabut was during a blogger’s event to help promote the reality show Apprentice Asia back in 2013, which was the asian version of its US original. He was with fellow contender Celine Le Neindre. The entire season was already pre-taped, including who won and I was very anxious who could have won?

During that event, I became an instant fan of Jonathan and felt deep within that this very smart and eloquent guy was going to be a finalist and en up in the Top 3 or 2 spots. And when the final episode came up, my hunch was correct and Jonathan made it to the Final 2 alongside his strongest opponent Singaporean Andrea Ern-Yu. But in the end, Air Asia’s Mr. Tony Fernandes declared Jonathan the grand winner and so our Philippine flag prevailed!

I had the chance to personally congratulate Jonathan during a post Apprentice Asia public event where some of the finalists flew here in town for a meet and a greet session at BGC. It was that time that I stayed in touch with him and Celine thro social media.

Fast forward to four year later, I had the privilege of attending a special #LiveBrighter series headed by Jonathan for SunLife Philippines that discussed from grit to great. He has left Air Asia and has put up his own consultancy firm and is an author of inspiring books on how to succeed. Jonathan also gets invited to a lot of talks and business seminars here and abroad.


According to Jonathan, there are scientists who have done studies on the most successful individuals, from employees, CEOs, and company moguls, and one common thing in all their stories is the way they stood up to failure. That is GRIT.
Grit is the ability to roll with the punches, to learn how to handle and deal with failures, and most importantly, the ability to be able to rise up no matter how many times one falls down.
He pointed out the importance of having a growth mindset instead of a fixed mindset; a person with a growth mindset has more room for success because they understand the importance of the expansion of the mind, which in turn leads to the expansion of skills, network, and opportunities, leading to a better life.

GRIT is also known as “passion and perseverance for a very long term goals.” Beauty, brains, and wealth will never get us there if we know how to handle ourselves out there. GRIT also refers to “traffic different egos and personality (emotional maturity),” how to execute plans and how to respond to failures and shortcomings. Surprise thought about GRIT is it doesn’t happen overnight. We have a responsibility and duty to play to get that GRIT in us. And we millennial should learn how to mold these characters.

 

SOCIAL PURPOSE
The most successful companies are aimed at making lives better. Tetrapak’s goal is to help prolong the shelf life of food in areas that don’t have access to refrigeration. Starbucks’ main business is to inspire people through their stores and it just so happened that they are selling coffee. In the Philippines, fashion brand Rags 2 Riches is an example: it is a social enterprise that employs men and women from the poorest communities in Manila, and provides them fair access to the market, equal profit, and business education.

Another speaker went onboard in the person of SunLife Financial Advisor and Unit Manager Mr JP Cruz who gave an inspiring testimonial on how he was able to attain his dreams of becoming successful and where he is now. The struggles and hardships he had to endure in the past motivated and pushed him to strive harder and build a better future for his family with the help of SunLife.

He encouraged everyone that when a goal is set, it is possible to reach it with the help of sheer determination and confidence and knowledge and faith.

Jonathan posted this photo and caption on his Facebook account a day after his talk and event with SunLife PH. May we be all inspired by him!

Shared my journey and lessons learned to becoming the first Apprentice Asia during the #LiveBrighter Session yesterday at Gallery A Space for Sun Life Financial Philippines. I also recount my experience on why I consulted a Sun Life Financial advisor and the importance of having one to my engaging audience composed of millennials, business owners, and Sun Life financial advisors. Thank you Sun Life Financial Philippines for this great opportunity and to all the attendees; go grab those dreams!

SunLife Financial Wants You to Be #Fit2LiveFree

P1220456

We were blessed to have been invited by a dear blogger friend to grace Digicon 2015 event featuring SunLife Financial’s Brighter Life #FIT2LiveFree program.

For many decades, SunLife Financial have proven they are a stable and trendsetting corporation when it comes to investing your hard earned money and making it really work in return.

It was nice to see CEO and President Ms. Riza Mantaring and Chief Marketing Officer Ms. Mylene Lopa once again in this event. I always see and chat with them during their regular and popular SunPiology run events.

Financial Independence Month activities

In order to address the situation and help Filipinos act on their financial concerns, Sun Life launched the #FIT2LiveFree campaign this Financial Independence Month. After all, Sun Life is here to empower Filipinos so they can truly enjoy a life that’s free from financial worries.
sunlifeTo inspire them to take care of both their wealth and health in a fun and interactive way, Sun Life will make available digital content to engage the public. Those who would like to determine their money mannerisms can take the Moneyrism Quiz on Facebook, while those who would like to share their fitness journey can join the conversation on Instagram with the hashtag #WellnessWednesday. By engaging with fellow wealth and health enthusiasts online, they get the chance to win minor prizes of FitBit wireless activity wristbands and a grand prize of a travel package to Seoul, South Korea.
P1220451“There seems to be a disconnect between the Filipinos priorities and concerns and the way they financially prepare for these. They are worried about their health and possible illness but they do not prepare financially. Most of them rely on their active income or on other people to fund their needs” said Sunlife President and CEO Riza Mantaring. ” What we need to remember is that wealth and health go hand in hand . By making sure that the right products are availed of to prepare for both wealth goals and health needs, Juan can be more fit to live free.”

After the related talks provided by invited guests SINAG winner and rising author Risa Fausto, SLAMCI President Riena Pama and SunLife’s Ms. Lopa, the Brighter Life Institute was at the same time launched for those wanting to go on an in-depth learning of personal finance, as modular lessons will also be offered on. Its initial offering is a five-module lesson for those starting their financial journey. This can be accessed at brighterlife.com.ph, where relevant articles are also shared regularly. The Brighter Life Institute is another pioneering financial literacy effort of Sun Life to reach out to more people online. Congratulations!
P1220463P1220465P1220460All these initiatives will help Filipinos determine the product solutions that will help them achieve the wealth and health goals that they have identified . To address their wealth goals, Sun Life offers the Sun Life Prosperity Funds, which will be promoted in a new TV spot called “Live Free” that
encourages Filipino to invest in their Financial freedom. For their health needs , Sun Life has Sun Life Assure and Sun Flexi Assist, to ensure that they have the funds to regain their health, should sickness occur.

“We’re here to empower Filipinos so they can truly enjoy a life that’s free from financial worries” Mantarang said. ” They deserve nothing less.”

That’s very true, Ms. Riza. The time is now to really invest our funds and reap its fruits when the need and time comes. If we don’t do it now…when?

Many thanks for the invite good friend Arnel Bautista. Until your next exciting and very noble events Ms. Riza and Mylene! More power to SunLife Financial and #FIT2LiveFree campaign.
