A situation that got you down? Feels like you have to step back a little bit and think through?

Does that ring a bell to you? This is one of many great discussions I had with Darwin (Founder of Paluto sa SG) in this interview.

Darwin Salonga, the Founder of Paluto sa SG,” is not only a humble, kind-hearted person with a simple and great intention to starting this community in Singapore, from sharing food to now having this community as a place where great opportunities began. Some initiatives include blood donation, charity donation, even matchmaker, and more. You’ll also get to know his entrepreneur side that leads to creating this helpful community page.



What is so inspiring about his story is that he always wanted to help and share, for example, food, knowledge, and anything valuable to people. Something that you will see from a character of a leader (in my opinion).

This interview was held back in late May this year, and due to other priorities – only till now, I’m able to publish it. Thank you so much for being so patient ❀️


       In this interview, you’ll learn:


  • Failure is part of the success
  • Rest and self-care are as important as part of achieving goals.
  • When you want to thrive, you have to deal with all the challenges.
  • It’s not about how often you fail, but how fast you get up when you get down.
  • Anything is possible when you believe in yourself.
  • The way to prosper in any community or project you want to work on is to provide more solutions.
  • We grow more when we help and support others.
  • To pray, seek God’s help (Creator, Universe – whoever you believe in)
  • How to Stay Optimistic

If you are in a place where you want to create a helpful community, learn how to take care of your emotions and well-being during these challenging moments, don’t miss this episode.

DEEP THINKING: We don’t know how long our current situation will be, what the future holds, but we certainly have the control or power over how we want to respond to it and continue pursuing our dreams. Spend time to reflect and think about your priorities in life, those things important to you, things or events that make you happy or productive, and write it all down. Learn to re-focus your lenses towards those things you wrote down and start to figure out how to take action. Remember; that small steps each day count, and enjoy the process.Β
