In this series, Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao focuses on looking into one’s self to find their place in the world, holding onto hope in the face of challenges, and drawing strength from one’s love for God, country, and others as a source of a clear mind, clean heart, and a generous capacity for service.


In our work with the public sector, we continue to draw inspiration from the idea that our desire to build a better country is driven by a desire to become better persons. We advertise the concept that the success of any institutional governance program rests on the efforts of individuals, and we do our best to guide those individuals in carrying out their aspirations towards personal improvement.

The author, Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, puts this material forward not as a prescription of beliefs, but as an illustrative example—a Filipino’s way of sharing with other Filipinos an experience in personal governance in the hope of encouraging them to look deeply into their own convictions and to find their place in the world.
