What success means to you? is it wealth? fame?, for some people they know its a success if they finish the goal that they have or their business is growing. Success means achieving a certain goals in life and you achieve it because of diligence, perseverance, patience and determination that you can do what you do. It is good to hear the word success when it comes to hard work, it is the thing that you can be proud of others, that you have achieved because of your sacrifice and perseverance to reach the goal you have even though many trials have passed and tested you. You can say you have succeeded if all your hardships have been replaced by joy and hope. Nor can a person be successful without the help of others, rarely do people become successful alone, most of what I read and see that people who have been successful have an assistant in the development of their dream. It is true that you cannot be successful alone, if there is anyone who has been successful alone, I am sure that person has not experienced happiness while treading the path to success. Achieving success is not rushed, it takes patience, the right time and hardwork to achieve success, it is sad to think that there are people who give up easily just because of a little mistake in life. We can not blame such people because that is their characteristics. There are people with just a few mistakes and judgments from society that cause them to not continue with their dreams. Maybe their determination and belief that they will be successful, they may lack support from others and few believe in their ability.
On the other hand, there are also people who, no matter how much society judges and belittles them, they do not give up, they believe more in themselves and they want to show that one day they will be successful in what they do. I salute such people because no matter what trials come their way and even if they grow up in poverty, they have a mindset that one day they will be able to rise out of poverty and achieve happiness. Something can be called a real success when it comes to hard work but there are people who find it easy for them to achieve happiness because they were born luxurious, they do not have to go through hardships just to succeed because their name is will lead them to success, it hurts to think that the world in which some live in luxury while the others have to work hard to earn money to feed the family is unfair and unbalanced. I still believe more in people who have been successful because of diligence and perseverance than in people who have been successful just because they are rich, there is a parable that stuck in my mind while I was in junior high school, there is a successful person who said people who come out of hardship and become successful are not afraid to return to poverty because that is where they came from and they can rise again, but people who have been successful in something they did not work hard for and when the time of their fall comes, they can not cope to live in a world of poverty.
Here are some people who became successful due to hardwork, First on the List is Mariano Que today he owned 700 branches of Mercury Drug, but few know what he went through, during World War 2, Mariano used his knowledge of Pharmaceutical to made an Antibiotics, he sells it to people with poor social status and rides his Antibiotics inside the "cart" because of his perseverance and diligence now he is well known throughout the Philippines because he is the owner of Mercury Drug Store.
Our own Miss Universe 2o17, Pia Wurtzbach, despite of her success during miss Universe 2017 in which she became the Winner, I've watched here story on MMK it tells there that she experienced so many failures in life, once her father left them and her mommy is the only person who take care of her and also her mommy support her in every pagents she joined, but unfortunately she experienced so many looses in Binibining Pilipinas, she attempt many times to join in this prestigious pagents but she always failed, she almost loosing hope but her mommy always support her and boost her confidence, until she became what she right now, a beautiful women whose ready to show to the world the universe rather that she confidently beautiful with a heart.
Then the next one is our own type of McDonald, the Jollibee, the owner of this fast food restaurant is Tony Tan Caktiong, at his young age he help already at their restaurant being a helper, server of foods and he also help washing dishes because of his perseverance, finished the college with a degree of BS chemical Engineering, and he build his own business with the use of savings of their family. He named it as Magnolia Ice cream House but later on they decided to make it as burger restaurant that later on became Jollibee, today Jollibee is not the only leading restaurant in the Philippines but also around the world.
