Three real life changers spilled their secrets in keeping the energy sustained to achieve their goal, as Pharmaton kicks off their latest endeavor, Pharmaton Life Changer’s Challenge
Sincerity and commitment are the two secret ingredients shared by Chef Rob Pengson, a culinary educator.“I believe it starts with sincerity, if you wanna make an impact on other people’s lives, you just really have to be sincere. Number 2 is commitment,” he expressed.
Sports advocate Peter “Futkalero Pedro” Amores said that being faithful on what he’s doing is the secret in sustaining the energy. He stated, “Believe in what you’re doing and knowing that you’re there for a purpose.”
Rags2Riches‘ founder and a social entrepreneur, Reese Fernandez-Ruiz, shared that people always have to remember the main reason why they are doing it as well as sustaining themselves so they will not burn out, which is something that could possibly affect the goals they have in line.
“Know your reason and stick to it, and second, take care of yourself, don’t forget that the person doing it is also very important,” said Ruiz.
Life Changers’ Challenge
Life Changer’s Challenge is an online video-driven competition nationwide looking for ‘exceptional Filipinos’ who produce positive change to the society.
Coming from the idea of Pharmaton’s campaign ‘The Life Changer’s Challenge: Success in numbers’, it is open to entrepreneurs, advocates, and other relevant groups of people wanting to turn their goals into reality.
“The core of the Life Changers campaign is really about bringing that energy on a positive level, how you’re going to use that energy for others and not just for yourself,” Pharmaton Senior Brand Manager Bernice Jalgalado stated.
Participants who are interested could be an individual or a group with maximum of three members that will submit a 2-minute video proposal explaining how their projects will be conducted, to the microsite that was said to be accessible soon.
On the selection process, the panel, including the Life Changers’ advocates, will evaluate and check the feasibility and impact of each proposal basing on the number of votes until they come up with the 10 finalist.
No age limit required, the proposal could be an existing project that participants want to expand or an idea that they want to work out as long as it can bring impact to other people’s lives.
During the evaluation, the panel will focus more on the context of the video proposal and not on the technological quality of the video.
Once the best proposal has been selected, it will receive a grant of Php 1M and will undergo two months of documented journey wherein the winner will be guided on how they will implement their project.
The finals night will be on June 30 of this year.
