Apprentice Asia first ever winner Jonathan Yabut was tapped to give a talk to inspire digital influencers and aspiring financial advisor last May 24 at A space Greenbelt. Attendance was full to the brim as he engages everyone by sharing what he learned throughout his journey from a heartbroken nobody to the celebrity status that he is known now.
Quoting several excerpts from his book “From Grit to Great”, Jonathan walks us through his sentiments and how he was able to overcome the hurdles he went through while growing up until he landed a stint on the reality show to his tenure at Air Asia all the way to his current business JY Consultancy & Ventures. He pointed out work principles that he lives by in order to achieve his current status.
Yabut quoted Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset theory research on whether individuals attributed success in tasks that required intelligent behavior to having sufficient natural ability as opposed to having practiced a skill and improving performance through learned experience.
