Everyone has their own dreams. There are those who want to have a big business to earn a lot of money. Others want to be successful at work and there are also some who just want to have a simple life.
Whatever dream that each of us has, the most important thing is that we take steps to reach it gradually. As what other people say, there is no shortcut to success, there are many challenges you’ll have to face to reach your goals.
There are so many ways to earn and make money. There is also no work to be ashamed of as long as did your job legally and honorably without deceiving other people.
An inspiring success story was shared by a netizen on Facebook where the old house that they had before turns into a mansion-like house. Due to being an online seller of ukay-ukay, Catherine Aman has made their home look new and very beautiful.
Catherine wrote on her post,
“Salamat Ukay Ukay. Lord, salamat hindi ko alam kung bakit mo ‘to pinaparanas sakin, pero sobrang nagapapasalamat po ako dahil nagbunga na po lahat ng paghihirap namin. Salamat po sa binigay niyo saakin na kalakasan ng loob. Sobrang dami niyo sakin pinaranas pero ito pala ang plano mo. Maraming salamat Lord. Kaya pala pinaransan mo saakin dati ang buhay na walang wala para magsumikap ako. Salamat Lord kasi naging stepping stone ko ang pagtitinda ng ukay. Salamat kasi pinakilala mo sakin ang ukay ukay.”
Many people may not use ukay-ukay clothing, bags, shoes, and other stuff. But it was a noble job and many people also enjoyed it so Catherine saved a lot of money which is the reason for her to fulfill one of her dreams, to build their dream house.
“Mga panahong nauulanan ako, nagkakasakit ako sa kakahanap ng kalakal (retail days), sobrang hirap dati pero nagtiis ako nag tiyaga ako, naging motivation ko ang anak ko dahil mahirap ako at gusto ko masuportahan ang anak ko sa lahat ng pangangailangan niya. Sabi ko dati sa Diyos pang gatas lang sapat na. Pero sobra sobra naman ‘to. Kaya sobrang thankfuk ko talaga. Grabe naiiyak ako hanang tina-type ko ‘to. Pero yun nga, kung nasaan man kayong linya ng pagnenegosyo tandaan niyo na walang mahirap sa taong mahirap na nagsisikap. Wag kayo susuko, bangon lang, kilos lang, wag mawawalan ng pag asa kapit lang. Sa negosyo, hindi ka kikita kung hindi mo sisipagan at hindi mo malalaman kung hindi mo susubukan.”
Catherine wants to give inspiration to a lot of people so she decided to shares her achievements because of her ukay-ukay online business. With the hard work and perseverance and the belief that you will succeed, nothing is impossible in life.
