64 Inspiring Real-life Success Stories from ABS-CBN News

In Eric Barker’s blog 8 Things The World’s Most Successful People All Have In Commonhe cited 8 characteristics that sum up the remarkable traits of the world’s most successful people:

  1. Stay Busy
  2. Just Say No
  3. Know What You Are
  4. Build Networks
  5. Create Good Luck
  6. Have Grit
  7. Make Awesome Mistakes
  8. Find Mentors

True enough, if you look at the lives of key Filipino businessmen featured in The Billionaire Series of this blog, you might observe that most if not all the traits mentioned above are inherent in these people.

I was wishing to bookmark all these articles found at the ABS-CBN news portal, most of which are featured in its business show My Puhunan (check out related post why you should watch this show) which features success stories of Filipinos and as means of paying forward, a fellow struggling kababayan is being assisted by a real millionaire. 

So I came up with a blogpost which you and I can bookmark for easy read. What I love about these millionaires is their humility and how they look back at their beginnings – from being a struggling vendor or janitor, to now a multi-millionaire. Their faith in God has remained firm, they look back with tears in their eyes as they recount stories of hardships and sweat. 
Let me say thank you to ABS-CBN news for coming up with informative and inspiring articles such as these below, hoping you could feature more as I know there are a number of untold stories of success in the country. And let me say thank you too to these millionaires who are now serving as our inspiration to achieve our financial goals at its optimum.
May we find ourselves in this state too, where our wealth speaks of blood, sweat and tears.
Someday, it will be my honor to feature my dear blog readers as success stories =) 
Someday, I’ll also speak of my rags-to-riches story and bless the world with inspiration and action =)

I cannot contain this burning fire anymore in my heart..

Friends, after reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo, I want to tell everyone to find your Personal Legend..
That someday, you will be standing in front of people sharing about your success story..
That someday, you will bless a lot of people because you can pay it forward to the community, to the needy..
That someday, you will become a success story, or you are now on your way to becoming one.
God has given us immense talents and possibilities.. Do not let Him down..
I am a dreamer and this fire in my heart has been unleashing me to my limits.. And I realize that God has called me to fight and work hard for these dreams He has planted in my heart..
So to all blog readers and members of the humble group Filipino Financial Freedom Forum, I urge you to find your Personal Legend and become the best you are designed to be..
You haven’t seen the best of you yet.. The best is yet to come.
