Misjudged Generation

This generation has been misjudged by a lot of people, and it’s sad. This generation is a generation of dreamers. It’s a generation of people who aspire and believe for bigger things. And the data actually bears it out.

Six out of ten millennials here in the Philippines aspire for leadership positions compared to four out of ten in developed markets. So Filipinos want to become leaders more than people in the U.S., more than people in the EU. So that’s an amazing thing. So Filipinos are born to be leaders, Filipinos are nurtured to be leaders, Filipinos are nurtured to be great.

More than that, Filipinos, millennials specifically, also want to become entrepreneurs. In fact, it’s double the number of people compared to other markets. So us, we want to become entrepreneurs. We want to be in control of what we do.

We want to be in control of what it is that we want to do in business or in our careers in life. So it’s bigger compared to other developed markets. So this generation really is a generation of dreamers and people who want to be big, who want to become good. And it’s not something that’s actually bad, because if you consider the world that we’re born into today, optimism and the audacity to dream is something that we actually have.

Following Your Dreams

It’s the only thing we have left. If you take a look at salaries and opportunities that are there, those are the things that we have left, and those are the things that we need to be able to hold on to. Now the funny thing is, people always tell you to follow your dreams. People always tell you that you have to travel, that you have to experience the world.
