Standing up after a great fall is one of the hardest thing to do in life. This often happen when you’re in the business world. Being an entrepreneur requires us to take risks. And sometimes, things don’t happen and work according to what we have planned.

 

Naniniwala ako that everyone of us, at some point in our lives experience the painful word “FAILURE”, yung may mga  sleepless nights, anxiety attacks and so much more, let me tell you that “I -Feel- You”.

 

I’ve failed many times, in small simple decisions in life and of course a couple of times in business ventures.. And it is true “Ang mahal matuto sa life and lalo na sa business”

Then.. One day, God tapped my back and said “Anak, you were born to succeed, you have My DNA, you have the right and power to achieve and be victorious, I have given you the abilities and talents to succeed in life. Move on! Move!”

And YES! Its a wake-up call! As always, God is always on-time, Those words were what I exactly needed to hear, I tend to be stagnant and stuck, full of excuses… Then that word “MOVE!” alarmed me.
