“What on Earth am I here for?”
If you happen to have read the book Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren, you probably have read that question.
I honestly admit that I have not finished reading the book yet, but that simple question has sounded loud on me. It keep me thinking over the years, “What on Earth am I here for?”
Being an introvert or maybe because I’m working from home and there’s no one to talk with that prompted me to instead write what I think. At age 39, I found myself still single with no real companion in life but my mother.
I was born to a family of small entrepreneurs and farmers here in the rural area of the Philippines.
My parents owned a farm and a wholesale grocery store, and most of their time were spent in business. They got no other choice but to work very hard to earn money, to send us 7 siblings to school.
Three of our siblings finished their study and unfortunately I belonged to the 4 others who didn’t make it. I dropped out of college at age 20 and took a job in a local pharmaceutical company, a work that’s quite related to my course.
After a few stints in sales, I returned home and decided to just start my own business—a community pharmacy business. And that started it all, all of my struggles.
I should have worked a job first and save money before starting my own business. Borrowing money from lenders at high interest rate was my biggest mistake, and was hounding me up to now.
Fortunately, I love reading books and because of reading Robert Kiyosaki’s books, I have learned maintaining a proper perspective. If it weren’t for those books, and of course the guidance of the Almighty, I would have been downed totally.
With my new perspective, I know that when you’re in trouble, it too will come to pass. And even if you’re broke, because of the rich ideas you have acquired, you are actually a rich person.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
To most people, the word “help” means only one thing: Financial help.
Although I do not close my mind to someday I will be able to help others financially like lend money, my mind is focused now on the higher level of helping which is empowering others on the right things they should do.
I read somewhere a quote that goes like this…
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Do you agree with the thought in this quote?
If I give you money and did not empower you of what to do, chances are you will be here again coming to me asking again for money. And that’s odd.
So, that means, no matter how much money you give to a person, if you did not empower him on how to properly use the money, he will always end up poor. What makes a person rich by having the right mindset—the mindset of the rich.
“Let money work for you.”
THE GOAL OF THIS SITE
Success is a poor teacher. Failure teaches you better.
There are three groups of people in the business world:
- The Poor
- The Middle Class
- The Rich & The Wealthy
If it weren’t for the failures that I got, I might have ended up as a contented middle class.
There’s nothing wrong with that, and the Scripture has plenty of lessons about being contented. But for a person like me who have acquired enough knowledge on how to become rich or wealthy, I must put the knowledge to work.
Become wealthy in a way that’s acceptable to Heaven.
Like what this book to the right teaches. Becoming a millionaire God’s way.
And like I said, here’s an introvert person with no other outlet to express his thoughts but to blog online. As a struggle to build a successful business, as I struggle to eliminate the debts and get to the next level of acquiring wealth, I publish my thoughts online as blog posts.
Blogging online to express my ideas and hopefully inspire/guide others.
The primary goal of this site is to inspire others. Secondary goal is to provide guidance, and that includes leading people to legitimate opportunities in business and investing as part of this site’s monetization system.
To summarize it all, I want to help others.
It is said, “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
Thanks for reading and if you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
