Success doesn't happen overnight. It's the small success achieved day by day that build a company. So don't be impatient or focused on immediate financial records.
According to John Gokongwei, owner of Gokongwie holdings company, To build a successful business we're not afraid of change but we're in fact excited by it. Globalization can be your greatest enemy. It will be your downfall if you are too afraid and too weak to fight it out. But it can be your biggest ally' he said.
Jobs are what allow people to feel useful and build their self-esteem. Jobs make people productive members of the community. Jobs make people feel they are worthy citizens and jobs make a country worthy players in the world market.
In that order of things, it's the entrepreneurs who have the power to harness the creativity and talents of other.
Go on business, this is the greatest challenge of today's generation, be entrepreneur and soar high for your success. (PIA) [top]
