How Inang encouraged Direk Cathy to be where she is now

Director Cathy Garcia-Molina is one of the best directors that we have today and never did she shy away from acknowledging that behind her success are great mentors, a major one of them being acclaimed director Olivia M. Lamasan.

In her "Magandang Buhay" interview last Wednesday, February 22, Direk Cathy revealed how Inang pushed her to continue her passion and be where she is now.

"Inang is my mother, my friend, my boss, my mentor. Lahat na rolled into one," she happily shared.

She added, "Si Inang 'di ko makakalimutan, kasi sabi ko nga sa inyo, nade-depress na 'ko no'n kasi 'yung mga kasabayan ko lahat direktor na, meron nang sariling shows. Mga ano pa, junior pa sa'kin.

"So tinatanong ko... 'Bakit ganun, Inang?' Sabi ko, 'Bakit po napag-iiwanan na 'ko? Bakit lahat sila andoon na?'"

Direk Cathy then shared the inspiring words Direk Olive gave her.

"Sabi niya sa akin, 'Anak, never compare your success with others. Trabaho ka lang, subsob mo sarili mo sa trabaho. Subsob lang. Isang araw pag-angat ng mata mo, wala na sila sa harap mo. Pagtingin mo sa gilid mo, wala na sila. Paglingon mo, ang layo mo na pala sa kanila.'"

And these were the words that kept Direk Cathy going.

"Oo nga, bakit nga ba ang success mo kinukumpara mo lagi sa iba? Hayaan mo sila, they have their own time. You will have your own time," she stressed.

In the end, Direk Cathy imparted encouraging words to people who are on their road to success.

"Trabaho ka lang, galingan mo lang. And one day, it will pay off," she said with a smile.

Direk Cathy's newest film "My Ex and Whys" starring Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano is definitely a blockbuster hit, having earned P31.5 million on its first day of screening and P200 million in just one week.

The "Most Beautiful Valentine" film is showing in 200 cinemas nationwide!
