We read or heard one or two definitions of success from different gurus. But let’s contextualize our understanding with these success quotes from Filipino Entrepreneurs
“Real entrepreneurs know success doesn’t happen to them; they make success happen. It’s about taking control of their future, otherwise, they wont have much of one.”
–JACKLYN LUTANCO-CHUA, Success 101
“Success is always there at the horizon. To get there, know how to chart the surest path, and follow it no matter what happens along the way.”
–RAFFY DAVID, Pilipinas Teleserv
“There is no such thing as overnight success or easy money. If you fail, do not be discouraged; try again. When you do well, do not change your ways. Success is not just good luck: it is a combination of hard work, good credit standing, opportunity, readiness and timing. Success will not last if you do not take care of it.”
–HENRY SY, SM Investments Corp.
“The more bitter the lesson, the greater the future success.”
–LUCIO TAN, Fortune Tobacco Corp.
“Success is not necessarily connections, or cutting corners, or chamba — the three Cs of bad business. Call it trite, but believe me: success can be achieved through hard work, frugality, integrity, responsiveness to change, and most of all, boldness of dream. These have never been easy slogans for me. I have lived by them.”
–JOHN GOKONGWEI JR., Robinsons Department Stores
“Be careful with your overhead. The success of a company depends on keeping your costs down.”
–GEORGE LORENZANA, Office Warehouse Inc.
