On May 17, 2016, Insular Life’s Million-Dollar Roundtable (MDRT) 2016 held its first monthly assembly at the Insular Life Corporate Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Over 40 MDRT qualifiers and aspirants gathered to meet and greet their respective buddy for the MDRT Mentoring Program.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales was invited as the motivational speaker for the assembly. In his talk entitled “Make It Happen: Creating the Future Now,” the VoiceMaster shared his humble beginnings, and how his persistence and dedication to his vision enabled him to overcome obstacles and lead him to where he is today. He shared his life principles about achieving success, setting goals, and making most out of the present moment.
The VoiceMaster also talked about time management, which he equated to “life management.” According to him, time is not something you manage, as everyone has 24 hours, and what we really manage are our priorities and tasks. He emphasized the importance of taking action, and on acting on one’s ideas, skills and passions.
The VoiceMaster shared the stage with Ada Cuaresma, one of Pochology Academy’s trainers. In her short talk, Ada discussed the importance of consciously creating positive habits that contribute to one’s long-term success. She shared the “7 Microhabits of Highly Successful People,” which consists of 7 small activities that one can do every morning to start their day right.
The Insular Life Million-Dollar Roundtable is comprised of insurance agents who belong to the top percentile of the company in terms of their sales performance. During the mentoring program, MDRT qualifiers act as mentors to the aspirants to help them achieve their goals.
