The Impact of Jose Rizal in My Life: How His Principles and Dreams Influenced Me

Most Filipinos know Jose Rizal as our national hero in our one-peso coin. In history, students and enthusiasts know how he fought for the Philippines’ independence against the Spaniard colonizers. 

As for me, the VoiceMaster, I see Jose Rizal as my idol. He is my inspiration and his life influenced me in different positive ways. Let me share how he has impacted me in different ways.

Rizal is nationalistic. He always found ways to serve the country even if he needed to risk his life. We are fortunate that we live in the time that we are free. In this freedom of choice, I want to live and serve further the Filipinos. Even if I got the chance to live in a greener pasture in the United States as I pursue my voice acting career, I realized my heart belongs in the Philippines.

I came back here to the country to start my own company. I failed and lost P3M in my first business after 6 months of operations. The second company is CreatiVoices Productions which became the home of the Philippine Center for Voice Acting. This is the training ground of different aspiring voice artists whom I and Mr. Danny “Ama” Mandia wants to help. Looking back, I never regretted my decision to return to the Philippines as I help more Filipinos to reach their dreams.

Just like Rizal who never stopped learning and achieving new milestones, I also became disruptive and innovative. I hate monotony. I don’t want to be stuck with the same old cycle and pattern no matter how convenient it is for me. I never stop creating new ideas and bringing them to life with the desire to support more people in taking actions for their personal goals and career.

Excellence is a mantra I am living in my life too---because Rizal never settled for mediocrity. He committed to doing things with the best of his ability, time, and resources. This is my principle too as a motivational speaker, CEO of CreatiVoices Productions, Go Negosyo speaker and mentor, author, and founder of different organizations including The Microphone Club, Philippine Association of Public Speakers, and Voice of the Youth Network.

I believe that, in one way or another, I am the present-day Rizal. Amidst all those obstacles, I still pursue the fulfillment of my dreams.

As a tribute to my idol, I have taken pictures with more than 300 monuments of Rizal in 50 provinces. The farthest in the country I reached is in Batanes and Lamitan, Basilan. I also went to the monuments of Rizal in Hawaii and Singapore. This year, I will go to Europe and visit the monuments of Rizal.

Rizal is the only person who has monuments in other countries, approximately 40 monuments. Even former president George Washington doesn't have monuments outside the United States.
