Interpretation of the painting:

Behind the story of this painting is a representation of the autumn season and the magic of color, wherein the leaves changes their colors according to the season.  This painting shows how the simple beauty of the leaves changes in a tree.  “I painted this artistic output because it shows the wonder of vibrant striking colors of the natural beauty of the leaves which are depicted in the art canvas” according to Jesse Esplana.

One Million Challenge of “I Love Success Book”

 

By Elmer Rioflorido Esplana, Economist Blogger

 

There is an ongoing one million challenge for the book entitled “I Love Success, Milestone of Leaders. A journey of an ordinary QC Government Employee doing extraordinary works to help and inspire others to success.” The book was authored by Dr. Bert L. Olivar. Dr. Olivar graduated his Doctor of Veterinary Science and Medicine from the Central Luzon State University. He is currently working as Veterinarian at the Quezon City Veterinary Services Department.

In an interview, Dr. Olivar said that his book “I Love Success” is an inspirational book published by the Central Books Supply Inc. located at 927 Phoenix Bldg., Quezon Avenue, Quezon City. The book has 182 pages and it is soft bound.  It was registered with the National Library.  The book is currently being circulated in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao through the six book retail outlets of Central Books Supply Inc.

According to Dr. Olivar, the vision of the book is “to believe, trust and serve God” by promoting and distributing his book. He said, “I am not selling book, I am selling hope for the future.”

His mission for his book is “for it to become an instrument in changing the world into a beautiful, peaceful, and prosperous New World.”  Although, being a Filipino,  the Philippines is one of his main focus which he believed that by sharing his book, “it will make the Philippines great!”

He said that my advocacy in my life is “Love of God, Love of Family and Love of People.”

As part of promoting the positive values of love for the country, he also included in the back page of the book the words of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte which says “I Love My Country!”

According to Dr. Olivar the “I Love Success” book has four components namely: first, Great Power = Man + Great Minds; second, Great Spirit = A Fertile Mind + God’s Word;  third, Great Leader = Man + Value, Character, Principle; fourth and lastly, Great Wealth = Man + Tithing.

Great power from the words of Rudolph W. Guilliani said that each one had to surround himself/herself with great people. He further said that “have beliefs and communicate them.”  See things for yourself.  Set an example. Stand up for bullies. Deal with first things first.  Loyalty is a vital virtue.  Prepare relentlessly.  Under promise and over deliver. Don’t assume a damn thing.

Great spirit from Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Great leader is service.  By giving great services to others, life becomes more meaningful.

Great wealth is tithing. By giving what is due to God, the more we are given. There is a spiritual law that the more we give, the more we receive.

In terms of the importance of his book, first, Dr. Olivar stressed that his book is a year-round guide for everyone to build mental reserves to be used during trial times. Second, his book provides his readers with anchor in stormy life.  Third, his book makes people resilient in time of failures. Lastly, his book is like a software that makes our mind strong when faces with difficulties along the roads of life.

Dr. Olivar’s “One Million Challenge” for his book “I Love Success, Milestone of Leaders” is based on his dream and desire to generate funds, so he can support helping students who are not able to go to school, to be able to study and have a tool to achieve success in life.

The favorite words of Dr. Bert L. Olivar which he usually say “I said Yes to Success.”
