12 reasons most Filipinos are poor

List of loser mentality and practices

  1. Belief that the destiny is up to God.
    1. Your destiny is in your hands, you have the power.
  2. Use salary to help parents, siblings and relatives before themselves.
    1. Love yourself. If you are rich, you can help others better.
  3. Never invest.
    1. A salary can only go so far, even if it is a big salary…
  4. Smoke and drink.
    1. Spending time, health, money. And damaging brain, taking worse decisions the next day and being less productive.
  5. Believing in luck.
    1. Results are about sweat, not magic!
  6. Gossiping.
    1. Envy and negativity attract more of that to yourself.
  7. Begging in the streets and online.
    1. Nobody likes a needy person. Everybody loves people who give. Be a giver and never beg.
  8. Believing someone will fix their life for them: President, Angels, Boss, rich husband…
    1. The only person to save you is You!
  9. Never mastering the English language.
    1. It is not funny that you have bad English. It’s so easy for a Filipino to brush up English, more than any other language, we grew up with English around!
  10. Playing video-games.
    1. Epidemic of young and not so young playing video-games in their spare time is alarming, unproductive and mind harming.
  11. Being lazy when the boss is not watching.
    1. Perfect reason to be fired because you are not productive for the company! Not sulit!
  12. Spending time and money patronizing the Catholic church.
    1. You can pray at home and save time and money going to the church.
    2. It is a religion who loves the poor and says it is hard for a rich person to go to heaven. Bad motivation.
    3. It makes people small and fearing an all mighty god. Makes you weak.

This are reasons I found after some years living in the Philippines as an employer and seeing many repeated practices that keep people in the mud forever.

The problem is not economic, it is mental. A change of mindset would change their pockets.

We have successful Filipino titans who came from zero to the top. It is possible for anyone.

I write this post not to put anyone down, but to awaken even if 1% of the people who read it. I am happy to take the bashing and the hate of 99% if I can save one Filipino by turning on the spark towards change, effort, success.

2018 achievements

It is good to celebrate all wins in life!

How to get laid more

Main motivation to do anything for many people is sex!

What do people find attractive from other people and make them want to get in bed with them…

  1. Sexiness: nice face and body.
  2. Power: fame or influence.
  3. Money: if you can provide their dreams they will lay with you too.
  4. Intelligence: if they admire your brain you can screw them.
  5. Talent: perform and touch their hearts.

The good news is that all these requirements can be built with effort.

You can decide to be pretty with make up, taking care, plastic surgery…

So you can see how you can look totally pretty of you want. And same goes for the body. You can lose weight and get fit with diet, gym and even plastic surgery. Even grandpas achieve this. It is your choice…

Want fame and influence power? Never been easier with social media! I can help you get where you want online. Send me a message through the FB page Here my plan to reach 1 Million followers myself with progress report. http://kuyamanzano.com/plan-to-get-1-million-followers-online/

Money is clearly possible to build up. How many cases have we seen of people going from rags to riches, right? Check the Henry Sy story…

Personally I set a goal to have a net worth of $1M in 10 years time. See the plan and progress here. And a personal tip I learned for building wealth in this video…

Intelligence… it is very relative. Look, if you can wow them knowing a lot more than them in anything they have interesting in learning, that can also put them in your bed. Become an expert in your field and many opportunities with sapiosexuals will come your way.

And as for talent… many people tell me they wanna be performers, that is their dream… I say if you are serious about it and want it badly. They take it as your main studies for a few years, get deep into it and then start performing. It is hard like any other profession.

So decide if you wanna do the effort and build any of these qualities.

Tip: miracles and magic don’t exist. Nothing comes free. You gotta pay the price!

Plan to get 1 Million USD

I set a goal to have net worth of 1 Million USD in 10 years time. Join me in the journey!

To make it easier I broke the amounts to achieve per year and make increments of 30% yearly more or less.

The purpose of writing and publishing it here is to visualize it, to be accountable to you, to inspire, to show the progress.

Yearly increments proposed…

  1. 50k by year 2019. DONE by June.
  2. 70k by year 2020. Progress 76%
  3. 100k by year 2021.
  4. 150k by year 2022.
  5. 200k by year 2023.
  6. 250k by year 2024.
  7. 350k by year 2025.
  8. 500k by year 2026.
  9. 700k by year 2027.
  10. 1 Million by year 2028.

Actions towards glory

  • Bought 2 apartments and a commercial space lot since 2002 and rented them out to pay for the mortgage. Loans of 120%, zero down. Results, lots of headaches and break even cash flow. Good side is the mortgage is being paid and contributing to the net worth every month.
  • Work as an actor and singer since 1998.
  • Work in many other tasks since 1998: waiter, farm boy, writer, social media manager, webmaster, software programmer, tour guide, language interpreter, language teacher, anything under the sun…
  • Operator for Uber / Grabcar in the Philippines
  • Created and running coffee shop in the Philippines called iChill Theater Cafe
  • Investor at Marzfuel gas stations in the Philippines

Progress and plans

  • We are ahead of target. Will create a mix of passive steady income and concrete one time only actions. Optimize also the ones we already have…
  • Reduce debt ahead of time so the income from real estate will give more profit each month and save tons in mortgage interest.
  • Claim pending amounts from different businesses that we are entitled to.
  • Sell feature film Changing Direction online.
  • Distribute films of other creators.
  • Accept new jobs be it performing or office work.
  • Turn the coffee shop into profits or sell the business


Hope this helps clarify, see it and pursue it more clearly. Do you have any tips or comments, reach me out through PM in any social media channel, I am omnipresent and check the PMs personally. Thank you for joining me in this adventure!

Binondo the musical subjective experience at Solaire theater

Congrats to the cast and crew of Binondo the musical closing tonight at Solaire Theater!

This is gonna be a very personal blog post of my very subjective trip. And will write in random order haha.

My Chinese friend Sam Tan enjoyed it more than the Lion King! And he is a musical theater connoisseur so that is a big compliment. Also being Chinoy it makes it very relatable.

Most Filipinos have some Chinese and some Spanish blood mix, so this is a musical for every Filipino to watch. Hope they can rerun it in the future.

Miss Rebecca Chuaunsu

Giant effort by Miss Rebecca Chuaunsu to produce, put together, give birth to the story of her uncle. This is a Herculean task. I have produced and directed before and I can relate of the incredible amount of effort that that can be. So thankful for her patronizing iChill Theater Cafe for her auditions and workshops.

I don’t speak Tagalog, I was hoping for subtitles for the Chinese or Tagalog lines hahaha. No luck. Tho I could follow the story line and I enjoyed seeing such talented artists on stage.

Actress: Tuesday Vargas

Surprised and amazed to see Tuesday Vargas on stage. Knew her from when I was invited as an actor to her TV serie Kano Luvs Pinay for TV5. Her performance in Binondo stands out. She really squeezes the juice out of her funny character. And that was a good lesson for me to watch. She is a star, an artist, a creator, and that shows!

Director: Joel Lamangan

Happy and honored to say hello again to director Joel Lamangan. We worked together in Enchanted Garden TV serie for TV5 many years ago and hadn’t seen him again since. Good job directing Binondo sir. A big cast, very different types of artists on stage (tv, dancers, musical theater actors) and a show born from scratch. It’s clean and understandable even for a non Tagalog speaker like me, so great direction!

Writer: Ricky Lee

Book by Mr Ricky Lee. Very loved in the industry personality. Mentor to many. Never worked together so far. Looking forward to it. Another big achievement because this is a 3 hour musical! And I could see how people enjoyed it and gave a final standing ovation.

Actress: Ima Castro

Big plus for me was to watch perform, for the first time in my life, Ima Castro. She was Kim in Miss Saigon London and that is a giant title that makes me bow. Great voice and acting.

Actress: Sheila Valderrama

Talking about great voice and acting we have to bow again for the leading lady Sheila Valderrama. Who is going to portray very soon the role of the Virgin Mary in Guadalupe the musical. So thankful to perform with her soon in that musical for the first time. I am a fan since I saw her perform in Noises Off for Repertory Philippines.

My childish mind was screaming seeing her kiss so much on stage with leading man Arman Ferrer, coz she is the Virgin Mary in the next play hahahahha. And because I know the husband in real life, actor Lorenz Martinez! Jooooke haha this is my ADHD mind doing it’s thing!

Actor: Arman Ferrer

Arman Ferrer had a great performance. He has kept on improving since we alternated the role of Ibarra in Noli me Tangere the Opera in 2011. And he has bulked up physically so he is a good romantic lead role candidate. For that reason probably director Baby Barredo chose him to star in Guadalupe the musical next.

Actor: Floyd Tena

Met Floyd Tena, who plays the role of Carlos, the love loser guy we could say? Now I gotta follow his career forward, he was solid on that stage.

Sayang they were not selling the CD coz my friend wanted to buy!

Many friends in the cast, all so talented!
