During the SFC “Relentless” 25th International Conference, I finally met Bro. Donnie Ray Aquino, a fellow member of PICPA Riyadh Toastmasters Club (PRTC), a passionate communicator, a dedicated brother in SFC and a very talented fellow OFW from Oman.
I never had a chance to mentor him in toastmaster and he was full of wit. His charisma speaks for her gift of gab – a natural charmer.
He was a prominent humoruos speaker.
He joined the famous game shows like Game Ka Na Ba and Pinoy Henyo.
Recently, he joined Tawag ng Tanghalan as one of the contenders from Mindanao. It was an uphill battle but he fought hard. He did not win but the experience taught him to never surrender.
I lauded his efforts to showcase his God-given talent whenever the opportunity arised.
Bro. Donnie, thank you for being fearless. Your self-confidence was an inspiration to many.
Win or lose, we are here for you. We are looking forward to your next endeavor. All the best!
Bro. Donnie’s confidence emanates from a place of truth.
Believing in yourself is the fire starter for success of almost any measure. But how do you develop that self-confidence?
According to the Dalai Lama, it’s simple: “Love brings self-confidence. Anger brings fear.”
Self-confidence, he says, comes from generosity, from thinking and caring about others.
If you live your life with a genuine concern for the well-being of others, you will feel better about yourself, and in turn, feel more confident.
This is who Bro. Donnie is.
Full of love and kindness, a true brother and a servant of God.
