Today is Chinese New Year and I can only be amazed with them because apart from the Jan. 1, there’s no other New Year celebration than the Chinese. More than than their largest population in this world, I guess it’s their success stories which we should pay attention.
Here in our country, most of the big business establishments are owned by Chinese. The largest store which is owned by the wealthiest Filipino (who recently passed away at the age of 94), was born of Chinese parents. Henry Sy was relentless, hard working and determined. All his efforts paid off. His family must have been sitting pretty for all these years.
One noteworthy attitude with the Chinese is their being frugal and futuristic. They can sacrifice their wants just as long as they can save money in order to realize their bold and ambitious dreams.
Collectively, they’re taking over the globe. China is the fastest growing economy of the world. Sooner than we think, US will be way behind. As it’s been said, “God made the world and everything else is by China.” Hehehe!
My wife works in the biggest hardware store in Cebu owned by the Chinese. She’s been influenced by their practice of Feng Shui. One belief is having money, egg, rice, sweets, fruits and candle on the table as this will attract good luck on the start of the year. Well, let’s see…
With or without Feng Shui, Astrology or Numerology, I think anyone can be successful if we just have focus on one goal and work hard for it without relenting.
I used to affirm words to myself in order to create reality I want to happen. I wasn’t just consistent. Let me do it again but this time it’s focused coupled with unrelenting hard work.
I affirm: “2019 is my year. I’m gonna be rich, successful and blessed with intelligence and good health. Thank God. Amen.”
Gong hei fat choy, everyone!
