Hmm, sounds familiar?
I am sure we are very familiar.
Naging parte na ng buhay natin
ang mga produkto ng kanyang kumpanya
whether it’s food, travel, real estate, or utilities pa ‘yan.
At ang man behind these successful businesses?
No other than Mr. John Gokongwei Jr.
Did you know that at 13 years old, namatay
na ang kanyang ama kaya he had to work
para makalabas sa utang.
At an early age, he started selling peanuts
sa kanyang classmates in Cebu then later on
he added other products to sell tulad ng
sabon, sinulid, at kandila and eventually ventured into
selling it to a bigger market.
Then the rest is history.
Just like a lot of us, he was just an
ordinary person na naka-experienced din na
malubog sa utang. Rags to riches, ika nga.
Ano ang naging sikreto niya?
Let’s find out through his life lessons
na kanyang pinaniniwalaan.
“WORK HARD. IF YOU DON’T WORK, YOU DON’T EAT.” gokongwei
For him he believes that money is
earned and not given.
Yes, okay lang to give money to our children
from time to time but we should allow them
na pagtrabahuhan ang pera.
Same thing with us adults, hindi lang basta basta
nalalaglag ang pera at asenso,
maraming kailangang pagdaanan.
No other way but to push ourselves,
or else, we won’t survive.
“THE DINNER TABLE IS A PLACE FOR IDEAS.” gokongwei
Be home early. Make sure that we meet
our family at least every night na kung saan
pwede tayo kumain ng sabay-sabay,
at mag share ng mga ideas and opinions.
This is where ideas starts kasi we
tend to learn from each other.
Use this as an opportunity to just talk.
Bitawan muna ang mga gadgets.
“ASK FOR ADVICE.” gokongwei
No matter how successful we are,
we will always need an advice
kasi meron silang alam na hindi natin alam.
Meron din silang na experienced na
hindi pa natin napagdaanan.
And through them, we learn.
Never stop asking because asking for an advice
is not a sign of weakness but a sign of humility.
“WOMEN ARE JUST AS SMART AND AS STRONG AS MEN ARE, MAYBE EVEN MORE.”
Guys, ‘wag nating ismolin ang mga kababaihan
dahil kung ano ang ginagawa natin,
sabi nga ni John Gokongwei Jr, eh
kayang kaya nila or baka BETTER pa.
Wala dapat yung:
“Baka hindi niya kayanin ah”
“Huh? Kaya ba niya ‘yan?”
We are all capable of working,
coming up with new ideas, and
producing great output so
all must receive equal opportunity.
“THANK THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED YOU ALONG THE WAY AND GIVE BACK.”
Ako paulit-ulit kong pasasalamatan
ang aking mentor na si Francis Kong.
Kung hindi dahil sa kanya, masasabi kong
walang Chink Positive ngayon.
And as my way of giving back,
I am sharing my knowledge to people
on how to become wealthy and debt free.
Because you see, no matter where
we are right now or how far
we’ve become, dahil ito sa mga
taong tumulong sa atin along the way.
At para hindi masayang ang biyayang binigay sa atin,
give back so we can be a blessing to others too
and make a difference in this world.
“LIVE SIMPLY BUT SPEND ON EXPERIENCES.”
Don’t spend too much on things that
are only temporary.
Ang dapat natin pinagkakagastusan
ay yung mga bagay that will expand
our knowledge and equip us with new ideas
so we can further develop our skills.
Read books, attend seminars, or
enroll on a specific course.
“DECIDING ON THE ONE YOU MARRY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION YOU’LL EVER MAKE.”
Our spouses serve as our cheerleaders.
They will be the one to motivate us and
encourage us especially during the times that we fail.
Pray for that someone who has the same belief
and principles so that we are both on the same page.
Gaya sa business, real men will
work hard to win that special person.
So ladies, pray for the right one.
