In May, Guadalajara, Mexico-based businessman, Gome Gomez, hosted a private virtual fundraiser to secure indispensable personal protective equipment for frontline healthcare workers in his home state of Jalisco. Gomez, who holds leadership positions within various companies, understood the importance of helping protect medical personnel so they could safeguard public health. Local business executives Francisco Padilla and Roberto Romero aided Gomez with key activities in organizing the event. Gerardo Zamora, a Mexican talent manager, helped coordinate several artist performances. Their efforts helped ensure safer working environments in various clinics and hospitals.

The charity event entailed DJ sets by talented performers from around the world: Diplo, Ten Walls, Sharam Jey, and Iñigo Vontier, among other artists. Attendees were asked to contribute $40 or more towards the Ahora Te Cuido Yo (Now I Look After You) NGO. Gomez offered to cover the cost for potential attendees who could not donate at the time due to the pandemic. For weeks following the event, the donation link remained live, and the event raised a total of more than $35,000 for the initiative.

“Despite the pandemic being a global problem that stresses resources everywhere, we had guests from around the world, ranging from LA to Qatar, donating to help healthcare workers in Mexico. I was touched by the generosity of so many friends and acquaintances.”

Gomez asked Ahora Te Cuido Yo, the organization in charge of purchasing the medical gear and delivering it to the different public hospitals, that his personal donation of $10,000 go to help the secluded Native American area in the Northern part of Jalisco, which is one of the few places in México where the Wixárika people reside. Wixaritari is known in Mexico and abroad for producing intricate artistic depictions of their worldview using beadwork, yarn, and other mediums. Gomez’s family has a history of working with and supporting this ethnic group, both through Arte Kuu and through Fundación Wérika, two organizations started by Gomez’s mother, Martha Collignon.

After the Secretary of Health Jalisco, in coordination with Ahora Te Cuido Yo, dispersed the grant to vulnerable regions of the state, including the Wixárika communities in the North, the positive impact of Gomez’s fundraising did not go unnoticed. This month, Dr. Guillermo Islahuaca, the General Director of the Sanitation Region 1 Colotlán of the state of Jalisco, reached out to thank Gomez to represent the Wixárika villages that received aid. In an official letter, Gomez was thanked for the medical equipment that maintained healthcare workers’ safety while serving 853 COVID-19 patients across 28 rural clinics thus far.

Gomez’s selfless act helped medical staff respond quickly to patient surges. However, he does not plan to stop contributing to public health causes:

“Region 1 Sanitaria Colotlán has been proactive in working closely with the community. It serves to mitigate the virus’s spread and provide acute medical care for individuals who have already contracted the disease. Recently, they airlifted an 82-year-old woman with COVID out of this remote area to get treatment at a larger hospital. She thankfully made a quick recovery! I will personally continue supporting Dr. Islahuaca, Dr. Itzel Aguilar (founder of Ahora te Cuido Yo), and others who are doing their part in the COVID-19 battle. For now, I am told that Región 1 Sanitaria Colotlán feels well equipped regarding protective gear as we go into the colder months.”

The unreasonably common notion of success shaming has dominantly started to enter in our society where ridiculing and berating someone for their success based on assumptions and envious guilt has practically become habitual. The current usual mindset of shaming someone with a thought of “singling out” their opinions with criticism is rife. The surprising fact is, that, sometimes one is unaware of that guilt and envy in them, which has overshadowed their true sides. The one who casually comments, “I despise how easy it was for her to get money without working hard” would never deny the money won by the lottery.

Global Celebrity Life Coach, Myke Celis, popularly known as the Unicorn behind the highly popular international coaching brand, #BestMeEver,  talks about how success shaming and has unknowingly become a part of life. Myke says, “Nowadays with the rise in social media usage, people tend to be more critical about others as they continuously compare themselves and their space. On that note, even if a person posts about an achievement or a personal milestone in his life with good intentions, others are quick to judge and make that person feel bad for actually thriving in his space, based on how they perceive their space and the status quo.”

Celis as a professional, Certified Global Master Coach for Life Coaching, Neuro-Linguistic Programming & Timeline Therapy is currently thriving as a global expert in self-empowerment to help people be comfortable with themselves and their success. As he focuses on the current issues of online bullying and success shaming, he mentions how it has drastically evoked changes in self-confidence where he strives to illuminate others with his experiences and mentoring to lead them to their own #BestMeEver. He says, “Don’t ever feel guilty for being successful because you deserve that success. The greatest disrespect you can do to yourself is to believe when others say that you are not deserving or that it shouldn’t be done. Your success and happiness are what matters most at the end of the day. It’s all about you.”

Currently, Myke has numerous coachees and mentees under his stable who are composed of celebrities, highly successful people and top executives from various parts of the world. With his experiential journey in coaching and mentoring countless people of different genders, age, cultures and races, he highlights the most common age group who strangle themselves with the idea of success shaming are teenagers who are constantly in the quest to secure high standards of swanky online life. Celis, the international best selling author of 5 inspirational titles explains, “Every single time I would give a talk to high school students, this issue comes out. Evidently, they are pressured because of what they see or notice in their usual surroundings. I always tell them to just focus on their journey,  redefine what success means to them and commit to themselves accordingly.

Myke Celis, who’s now making waves worldwide with his numerous speaking and coaching engagements,  believes celebrating success or accomplishments should not be a source of shame; in fact, it is the people who “choose” to see things with insecure perspectives who should rethink their ways. He further emphasizes the idea of self-empowerment as, “I think people should learn how to mindfully appreciate the success of others while working on their own without comparing negatively. That’s the way every story, from everyone in this world, becomes inspiringly empowering.”

Seen to be the next big name in life coaching from Asia, Myke Celis continues to grow his influence worldwide inspiring people globally to embark on their journey to self-empowerment and allow them to be comfortable with their success, no matter what other people may say or how they may react towards it. “Own your success because you fully deserve it. Don’t let others make you feel otherwise.”

As an International Subject Matter Expert, Celis has this to say to put a stop to success shaming in general:

“Instead of finding faults in the success of others, focus on finding ways you can uplift yourself. Understand what can you learn from them, what can you apply, what can you do differently so that you can celebrate your own success alongside those who have been successful before you. The world becomes a better, happier place to live in as we support each other”
