Sun Life Live Brighter Session Inspires to Pursue Your Dreams

The way to success does not always begin on a paved road. In most of the autobiography and biography of successful financial gurus I’ve read, there are incidences in their life where hardship and obstacles were in their way and they manage to overcome them.

During the Sun Life #LiveBrighter session I attended three days ago, I was amazed to listen to two people with humble beginnings and how they turned success around in their personal journey. Looking at Apprentice Asia winner’s Jonathan Yabut and Sun Life Financial Advisor’s JP Cruz, you would have thought that it is easier for success to find them, they look so confident and assured but each have a story to tell and wisdom to impart.

Overall, the session is an eye-opener. Yabut said that work principles has brought him to where he is now. After winning at Apprentice Asia, he worked for Tony Fernandes’ Air Asia. Fernandes is one of the world’s most successful people, a Malaysian business mogul whose work ethics is admired by everyone. Yabut also emphasized on the importance of serving a social purpose and this is what will keep you inspired to keep on improving your work. The same goes for JP Cruz whose motivation to success stemmed from a personal reason.  His ex-girlfriend won’t marry him because she had doubts whether he will be able to feed and support her should they get married. He found a deeper reason to pursue success and now he fined this reason to help people in in achieving lifetime financial security with his work as Sun Life Financial advisor.

Session like Sun Life #LiveBrighter is an inspiration. Sun Life Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager Fin Bernardo is right when she said, “There is so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session, between Jonathan and JP’s stories. I’m sure that the bloggers who joined us found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve. We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can also enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It is a career that’s definitely meaningful, and the same time financially rewarding.”

After the session it made me think, what is my purpose in life? What do I really want? Nowadays, millennial is getting a bad rep. People think they are cruising through life easy and everything is just a lark. They live their life in a way that it look like as if there is a short-cut to success. Maybe there is or there is not but one thing is clear after the session. Do something you love and be good at it and if you are getting paid for something you love doing and you are helping others also achieve their dreams, then it’s good.

“Live Brighter Session” are set to be held in Cebu and Davao. For more details, follow @sunlifeph on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Should you be interested to become a Sun Life Financial Advisor you can visit to learn more.
