Note: This momi attended a press conference inviting the young minds to have that successful mindset. None other than inspirational speaker Francis Kong and equally admirable speakers Eric Cruz and Ace Gapuz will be the day’s coach. Interested? Read on.
“Your failures do not define you. Not your mistakes, your disappointments nor your downfall. Because that’s what makes you become better every time you fall. It is all about how you can make things right after you got it all wrong. How you rediscover yourself after every downfall you have been through. And how you learn from your mistakes.”
– IEF Inc.
IEF (Ignite-Empower-Flourish Inc) is a company composed of young minds offering training, workshops, and coaching classes. Unlike other training and consultancy firms, IEF differs in a way that it aims to improve one’s personality and life through helping create a mindset for success and influence. The brains behind IEF have experienced mistakes, disappointments, and downfall. Their failure becomes their strength. And now, they share their strength with others as they also want them to succeed in life.
And to have a better understanding regarding success, IEF sponsors a symposium featuring Francis Kong. Dubbed as “Success: Ignite – Empower – Flourish,” the conference will also have Eric Cruz and Blogapalooza’s Ace Gapuz as special guest speakers. The event is slated on October 18 at 2pm at the AFP Theater in Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo, Quezon City. A portion of the proceeds is donated to World Vision. 10 young students in Zamboanga will be sent to school toward a brighter future. Because IEF has always believed in the potential of young Filipino children, the group will be supporting the education of those select children for a minimum of 12 months.
Toward a successful mindset
IEF made me understand and realize that indeed everything is a choice. The group chose World Vision as its beneficiary. I also chose to attend the press conference. Choice is the power that rests within us. And so is success. It is never luck.
What does IEF really push for is that success is a choice. And that choice is to do it now and make it better this time. Just like Jeric Cornejo, IEF Director, who was once broke and neck-level indebted. He learned from his mistakes and chose to live the life he wants. So he made a choice that moment and made it better. Now, he speaks of success and lives a successful life.
I got to understand as well that life never starts yesterday nor tomorrow. Life starts now. The now where everything is in my hands.
3 steps to a successful mindset
IGNITE that passion
Ignite your dream with awareness, hope, and ambition.
EMPOWER that dream
Empower your heart with purpose and direction.
FLOURISH with a purpose
Flourish your mind with wonder, passion, and handwork.
These are the same words that make up IEF. The company has the passion for sharing. It equips itself with the direction and flourishes with that purpose to share. Before Cornejo and the rest of IEF team became heroes to others, they were heroes to themselves first. And now, they want to give back and contribute to the world through IEF to make it a better place. Why? Simply because they do not want others to be left behind.
So be a hero to yourself first and choose to speak, smile, and think with a successful mindset.
But how do we define success?
Perhaps success means having your own house. Or a car. Or a stable job. Or simply having a good family relationship aside from the properties you have.
Or maybe, success is choosing to be happy and living a contented life. A happy man flourishes and gives back. And as he gives back, he gets more in the process. That is the life Cornejo is living. The same life Kristine Marcelo, IEF CEO, lives. And the life I am choosing to live.
Want to know more about success? Choose to listen to Francis Kong on October 18, 2pm at the AFP Theater. He will lead you how to ignite, empower and flourish that choice.
