Top 10 Filipino Businessmen in 2021

 

“To be truly wealthy you have to have a motivation bigger than just making money.”

Vista Land & Lifescapes founder Mr. Manny Villar shared this inspiring quotation. Behind these powerful words are the experiences he gained through the years that taught him to achieve his dreams by coming up with his deep whys. The intention to be rich will end too quickly if it is being fueled by the desire to just earn lots of money because if the time comes that you did not get money in exchange for all your hardwork you will quit easily, but if you know your deep why from the beginning of your venture, there’s no way you will quit easily. As he stated, you got to have a motivation bigger than money, and that motivation will sustain you, keep you going, and see you through till you reach your goal.
