My Life Purpose

During my training days in my first work back in 2005, our instructor asked us to choose which among the four principles in the “Fish! Philosophy” that would help improve our work skills. And I chose Be There. I didn’t think that it was the first step of determining my life purpose. I placed it in the left side of my study table (which I am still using up to now).




Some of you know or at least have an idea what companies I have worked for before. Some may asked, “San ka nanaman nagwowork ngayon?

I am not ashamed that before I become a Financial Advisor, I was once a Manager and Supervisor of quick service restaurant and international coffee shop respectively; and a Bank Products Officer handling credit cards/personal loans/deposits of an international bank and lastly, an Analyst of Collections department of a local bank. 

When I think about it now, I know all of them have purposes and reasons on its own. I am grateful and proud for all the experiences and learning that I have gained which I am utilizing in my present career. My bank-related work experiences that I have will be shared here in my blog. 

And I am thankful to our God that deep inside of me has accepted and realized the true meaning of everything--that everything is connected with each other. Most importantly, they brought me to where I am today. And I believe that won’t bring me to where I want to go. It will be a lot different. 

I stopped and smelled the roses

I don’t want to continue my life’s journey when I feel empty on the inside. So I really devoted my time to examine myself. Some of my friends whom I shared this with, they would laughed at me when I told them that I opened and browsed all my photo albums since I was born up to the present. 

For me to discover what are the things that I love doing and will make me happy including my accomplishments as a student. And also, there is one e-book titled How to know if your Dreams are God’s Dreams that really helped me discover my deepest desires and I want to share it with you. It has blessed me so much. It is written by my life, spiritual and financial mentor, Bro. Bo Sanchez. You can download the e-book by visiting his website.

Now, I am very much sure about my life purpose that every activity I have every day is an expression of it—which includes helping people to become financially independent through sharing what I have learned so far. There is also a symbol that will keep me focused every day. I hanged it underneath my clock. I love it especially I supported the “Mga Likha ni Inay” Foundation.
