What Manny Pacquiao is to the Filipinos

DAYS AFTER THE People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao humbled Miguel Cotto in their encounter last November 15, 2009, the Philippines are still talking about the victory—how greatness the Pacman has become in ruling the 7th of world titles from different weight classes: from a midget flyweight to a fast hitting welterweight.

Truly he’s demonstrated the definition of greatness in boxing. He’s now being considered one of the elite fighters of all time, alongside Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Marvin Hagler.

Pacquiao chased the bigger guy in the late rounds while Cotto sprang backwards trying his best to elude the relentless battering. It was in the 12th round when referee Kenny Bayless decided to end the suffering of Cotto and declared Manny winner by TKO at 55 seconds left in the round.

That day was obviously a day of celebration for every Filipino-blooded human being. The mania felt by many was no different from the previous triumphs of Manny whenever he put his grand act on a theater called the boxing ring.

The entire Philippine archipelago sat silently and eyes glued to their TV sets. Movie houses became a portal for a ringside experience. Crimes went down to zero as expected. Even the anti-government forces rest their arms to watch Manny Pacquiao win.

From poor to the elite class, people from all walks of life talked and continue to speak about his victory, his rewards and his private life. Even his mother, Dionisia Pacquiao, and family came under the eyes of the observing public.

So what are they usually talking about Manny Pacquiao?

His millions of dollars share from ticket sales and pay-per-views. His loads of income from all sorts of advertisements: TV, radio, print and internet.

We usually see him make a comic act to sell to us milk, vinegar, shampoo, clothes, deodorant, food, drinks, alcohol, and many more. We get entertained and oftentimes encouraged to buy, while he gets richer and richer.

His concerts, song albums, his political inclinations, even showbiz—his rise to fame form part of the discussions a lot of people come into.

What most people often miss talking about is how Manny Pacquiao became the Pacman that he is today. He didn’t become a boxing champion overnight. For if he did, there would be millions of people like him. Would it still be exciting to watch millions of other ‘Manny Pacquiao’ clones fight everyday and getting the same results? I don’t think so!

Manny Pacquiao sweated blood and tears to reach his goals. I’m sure a lot of us know already his story, but let me restate some important events in his life. He was once a young boy of a bakery selling bread, like an ordinary Filipino. The streets he grew up were his first battleground where he began fighting for small money. And without his mother’s permission, he set off to Manila to push his plan of making it big in boxing. He took ACTION despite no guarantee of success, and pursued his plan and dreams without reservations.

In Manila, he worked odd jobs – which include a janitor, a construction worker – doing this while training in the gym. His efforts began to pay-off winning 11 straight matches until he received his first major failure – a boxer named Rustico Torrecampo floored Pacquiao and brought him his first loss. A person’s reaction - with a weak heart - would be to quit at the sight of a failure. But Pacquiao’s dream is bigger than his failure, so he shrugged off his failures, learned from them, trained harder every day, focused himself to his plans and eventually achieved his dreams.


He took ACTION despite no guarantee of success, and pursued his plan and dreams without reservations.


For some, Manny Pacquiao is fuel for inspiration. He personified an ordinary person’s journey to making it big and successful by BELIEVING his dreams and DOING everything he can – despite the failures he met along the way – to ACHIEVE his success.

The good news is, and I believe that, he is still the same ordinary man that he was – with a strong mindset and will.

I’m pretty sure not everyone has the skill and powerful left and right hands Pacquiao possesses Not everyone can do boxing – I myself wouldn’t subject my body to painful punching. But we have our own battles in life. And we can fight these battles and be successful with it as long as we DECLARE we can win it, PLAN it and EXECUTE it.

His many victories are reminders to everyone that the willingness to act on your goals and doing it will take you there. The question is, are you winning your own battles in life? Or you’ll just be one of the many who talks endlessly about his successes and remain wishing ‘I want to be like Manny’?

Reasons Why You Should Get Financial Education (Part 2)

[Note: As I put online the second half of the previous post, an Inquirer news report greeted the Philippines (Nov.11.2009)-- Almost a million jobs lost between October 2008 and March 2009. If you still think job security is the way to go, think again and analyze your employer, and your situation. Is it getting ahead financially? Is the business of your company riding the trends, and technology, or is it becoming obsolete? Getting financially educated at these hard times will open up new knowledge and information to you, and why you should be minding your own business, instead of others.]

Here's the second and last part of the 10 reasons why you should educate yourself financially:

6. Solve Problems
Successful entrepreneurs are the richest people on earth. Just look at Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Mark Zuckerberg, just to name a few. What is common with these guys is they solve problems (and continue doing it) for many people. In fact, millions of people.
Entrepreneurs are problem solvers. They see it as an opportunity to do good things and make money from it. They don't run away from problems but face it squarely and seriously.
They have a good financial wisdom trained from educating themselves financially by believing in their goals, acting on their plans and doing without reservations.

7. Fail
Yes! To gain financial education requires you to fail!
Tell me, did you learn to ride a bicycle without falling one time or another?
Mistakes are the best teachers. In your quest for financial success, you'll sure meet a lot of obstacles and failures. And the more mistakes you make, the more you learn and grow, and become closer to success as long as you don't quit.
Because winners never quit.

8. It's Only A Game
Believe it or not, rich people play the money game to win. And for them, making money is just a game.
They don't get personally attached to their products nor the business. Often times, that is hard to realize for someone having a poor mindset.

9. Achieve Your Dreams
There's a major difference between dreaming and achieving dreams. It's actually a two different worlds.
Dreams or goals will only remain as such, unless you act on it. And the good news is, most dreams can be realized by "choice". Financial education holds the key to this entirely new world full of abundance and choices.

10. Get Rich
Why get rich? There's obviously a ton of answers for that question. But whatever your purpose is, I'm sure living an abundant and rich life is rather preferred. Because with abundant and rich comes choice of doing whatever that can make us happy and joyful.
"ANYBODY can wish for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a burning desire for wealth, are the only dependable means of accumulating wealth." - Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich
Teach2Fish aims to spread financial education to share to other people .
The process is available to everyone, but only to those who have the willingness to change themselves, break the limits of their comfort zones and create BIG change not only to self, but for others as well.

Lots of love!

Reasons Why You Should Get Financial Education

You may ask, "why get financially educated?" Here are ten reasons why...

1. Get out of the 'Rat Race'
For the average Filipino, length of formal schooling averages about 16 years. Starting from the age of 6, and finishing college at 21 years old. The usual path for a graduate of academic education is into the harsh world of employment-- also known as 'rat race'.
Rat race is like a never ending journey to NOTHING!
Wikipedia defines the term, 'an endless, self-defeating or pointless pursuit.'
A rat racer's world lives from paycheck to paycheck, work an average of 9 hours daily, taking orders from someone else. He/she then gets paid on the hour. For some, saturdays and sundays are working days too. They usually work to pay the countless bills coming in without accomplishing anything... just like a rat race.

With financial education, it will help you understand the process of getting out of rat race, and into the fast track where rich people play the money game to win.

2. Job security

Just how secure is your job, really? 2008 will be best remembered as the year when crisis on credit shook the US and the rest of the world. Tagged as massive financial crisis since the Great Depression of 1930s, the effects span across the globe.
For the Filipinos, the year has shown a series of events with OFW's returning home due to closing of companies and factories.

Locally, we've seen companies do; freeze hiring, job cuts, lay-offs and retrenchments.

Job security is like a maximum prison cell. You are tied to the job. Financial education promotes freedom of choices.

3. Defy the financial crisis, current and coming
Financial education will teach you about the internal economy independent to the shortcomings of the external economy. Having an internal economy will shield you from the mistakes of outside investors.

4. Beat the greatest conspiracy
In his recent book originally released online, Robert Kiyosaki writes about the conspiracy of the rich in our education, banking, etc.

With the right financial education, you can rise above the current economic problems and defy these system-rooted conspiracies, through change of mindset and taking action.

5. Service to others
True service to others entails sacrifice. Being an employee, you get to help yourself only too much. You can't sacrifice your time because if you swap your working hours to help other people, chances are you'll end up needing help too. You can only share a finite amount of your income since you yourself need help when it comes to finances. 

Simply put, you can't give what you don't have. And rich people have both the time and money to spend for service to others.

To be continued...

If you would like to take the first step to your financial freedom, please let me know by leaving your comment in the posts. We, at Create Abundance 2020 business community, take to our hearts the mission in sharing financial education to fellow Filipinos, to realize our vision of a First World Philippines. I’ll see you soon... JERVIS =)
