(5:26 PM) Mr. Bongco challenges universities on what their business is really about “It is not education because it does not matter what you teach them. But produce successful students, people will flock to them. If universities don’t realize that, the way they plan and implement will be off.”

(5:25 PM) Mr. Bongco: “We have to train people to be white wolves, to institutionalize everything. We have a complaint desk, but we have no appreciation desk. If we adopt it as a principle, which main goal is to appreciate the positive within, everyone would be excellent within.”


(5:22 PM) Ms. Balibay poses the question whether there is space for good news in the media. All guests agree.

Ms. Bea said, “Seed sown in goodness will bear better fruits. Good news is the news.”



(5:19 PM) “Many people, when invited to listen before a Filipino speaker usually ignore the Pinoy compared to if the speaker is foreign,” Cornel Bongco asks why. According to him, the uniqueness of the Banaue Rice Terraces is unique among Filipinos that mean Filipinos can.


(5:18 PM) The Unique Leadership series of Cornel Bongco aim to inspire.

(5:16 PM) Cornel Bongco calls the Certified Planner, a “miracle with pages.”

Beatrice Tesoro responds by saying, “We should be advocates of books, and should not be app-dependents.”


(5:14 PM) Certified Positive gathers positive responses from the public, evident in their Instagram where people comment about how positivity influenced their outlook in life. The planner has 365 inspirational quotes from everyday people, an advocacy telling us that all of us have nice and inspirational words to say.

“We in Certified Positive, we make sure we feature Filipino people. We know the Filipinos’ stories are something to be totally proud of. And we should support our own and at the same time be so proud that we have enormous talent in the Philippines.” – Beatrice Tesoro


(5:13 PM) On life visions, Cornel Bongco says, “I hope to be one who has reached the world with inspiration from the the Philippines to transform even their own organizations. We have a lot to share. And the Philippines has a lot of ancient wisdom that when we uncover will be our gift to the world.”

Cornel Bongco shares that Bea Tesoro is Salud Tesoro’s granddaughter, the “Mother of Handicraft in the Philippines.”

(5:11 PM) Sarah Olicia says her positive story of the day is being on radio, her first time being in a live radio show.

On what keeps her motivated, Sarah says, “It’s really God. The Positivity is found in Christ alone…We’re doing all these things all for the Lord.”

“When you are a wretched soul like me, and you’ve received forgiveness and you know that source is unending, you would be positive and you can’t go wrong,” adds Bongco.


Cornel Bongco talked about being positive about each new day, innovating every single day, celebrating everyday and went on to share secrets we can get from our Philippine national anthem about leadership. He said it is in the word “silanganan” that significantly means that there is tomorrow to look forward to, “seeing things in a different light,” the Significantologist way. When people see it his way, their views are transformed as the Transformentor mentors them to make their lives significant.


(5:08) Beatrice Tesoro shares her positive story of the day as Certified Positive recently partnered for a youth event for the February 14 Lovestruck Convergence at the Cuneta Astrodome, promoting the Certified Positive Book Planner on a Love-discount rate, in partnership with PCBS. Lovestruck will feature all about love, especially “biblical love.”
