Psalms 62: I wait quietly before God, for my victory comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.
I once read an article saying that a person will average 5-7 career changes throughout his lifetime. My question then was will they finally be successful going thru all those career changes? Perhaps... perhaps not. Fortunately for me I only had to go thru 3
Since I was a kid in my heart already I will become successful someday I just didn’t know how but I am certain why I wanted to and that is to provide an abundant life for my family. I had hopes and dreams to be a successful flight attendant and travel the world in style. I took up BS Tourism in college after which I applied in an airline company which eventually rejected me. Though looking back, that rejection turned out to be a blessing. Thereafter, I worked in a BPO company for five (5) years to earn a living, I wasn't happy of my job and I remember coming home tired and stressed. Later, my sister encouraged me to enroll in Nursing so I can work in the States and stay with them.
Because I was desperate to find a better job I started processing my papers. After receiving my license as a nurse I was so happy thinking that this was the answer to my prayer. I always thought that working abroad will give me more opportunities to grow and earn. The same way that my loving and responsible father did when he worked for thirty-five (35) long years as a merchant marine officer overseas. he was a good provider.
Little did I know God has other plans and He was working behind the scenes. One day I got a text message from a friend who would like to do a product demonstration to my Mom – since we were so busy, I declined her offer twice. But praise God she was very persistent to call and text me, so on the nth time, I finally said Yes to the demo in behalf of my mom. That product demonstration led me to this opportunity called Nu skin and opened doors for significant life changes.
the first time I tried the products I instantly fell in love with its demonstrable difference. Moreover, I was introduced to the Freedom plan of the business after the demo. In the beginning, I really didn’t understand it and I didn’t take it seriously, but when I met several successful people and one of them was my mentor Rhea Gudani for the first time in one of the spa parties I attended, on one of her presentations she said “would it be okay for you to work for the next 5 years and never have to work again.” I was shocked, ang nasabi ko sa sarili ko meron palang ganun. Her lifestyle attracted me the most and sealed the deal. I forgot about Nursing! and slowly pursued Nu skin head strong.
I realized, “Where else can I find a Superior line of anti-aging products with a Global Compensation Plan that allows you to work from home, hotels and coffee shops?” This opportunity made me realize that the world is my playground and I don't need to go abroad to earn a lot. I can earn here while enjoying what I love to do that is beautifying men and women in all walks and seasons of their life.
The lack of business background, feeling of incompetence and insecurity about my skin did not hinder me from taking the big leap in this business. Powered by my faith in God and the desire to bless others, I passionately used and shared the products of Nu Skin. The saying “do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life” is exactly what I experience in doing this business. It is all about passionately doing it every single day because it is worth it. I am certain that through consistent hard work, commitment and resilience, possibilities are limitless. In fact, I took my business on a different level when I embrace Social Media Marketing last year. This allowed me to expand my borders and break territories. Nu Beauty Official -my Nu Skin page is only less than a year old but it has given me the opportunity to widen my network and meet more people. It also allowed me to connect with hundreds of OFW's around the globe who is as passionate as I am to beautify this world one family at a time and to be able to bring them home close to their families for good. I'm happy to know that because of my decision few years ago, many lives were transformed, many families were restored especially the OFW's and more people became the best version of themselves.
The part that I love the most in this business is that I know in every step and in every effort that I give, it's leading me to reaching my dreams. And that I'm no longer working for someone else's dreams. I have derived a much greater sense of satisfaction from good relationships with my clients and my partners, and having a sense of purpose and meaning in my life. I love sharing and recommending new products that really works. I like seeing users get great results and finding ways to solve their financial problems. I like helping people.
Fast forward today, my Mondays is never the same again. I would never have to go through the working on a shift and being controlled by an alarm clock. I now have a full control of my life and can spend quality time with my loved ones while enjoying the passive income I have built along the way. I also took several trips to visit my sisters in the states and I love the fact that I can go abroad not as a worker but as a tourist
To top it all, this business has allowed me to travel the world every year and the best part of it all bring my loved one with me. Just last year I brought my mom with me to see London, Paris and Belgium, now she fulfilled her dream to see the Eiffel tower in Paris - all-expense paid! I'm finally fulfilling my first goal and that is to see the world in style without spending a dime and this is through Nu Skin incentive trips.
One of the greatest blessing in this business is the friends and business partners I made along the way who are now my second family. Working alongside with driven, dynamic and Godly partners is what I treasure the most.
Today as I embrace the Blue Diamond milestone, I can say everything was orchestrated by God, it is and continues to be a meaningful and wonderful journey for me. More than the money and the travels, I have found my life’s true purpose and that is to be a Salt and Light in this world.
O Lord, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them. Isaiah 25:1 NLT
At this point I want to take this opportunity to honor the people who played a significant role in this journey –
To my Mama and Papa, I would like to honor you both with my success. you are the reason why I did not give up. You have been my great source of inspiration. Thank you for your generosity and guidance. You have filled my life with so much love and goodness. Thank you for teaching me the values in life that allowed me to be where I am now. I’ll forever be grateful for having you as my parents. Thank you for the unconditional love and support I receive from my siblings, Ate Sheila, Ate Sharon and Nikko. I love you all beyond words. I’ll see you both very soon!
To all my business partners and to all my customers, thank you for giving me the reason to wake up every day, for bringing out the best in me as a leader, you are all God's blessing to me. I treasure each one of you, you are my family and I love you.
Allain and Mike, my Blue Diamond uplines, this journey became more memorable because I have the two of you. Thank you for praying for me and supporting me. I praise God for your lives.
To Sandy Martinez. thank you for your amazing leadership. Your vision allowed me to embrace and dream bigger. Thank you for creating an organization that helps us discover our fullest potential until we reach that pinnacle of success.
JP Villegas, thank you for your words of wisdom, your faith in the Lord blessed me. Thank you for your constant reminder to finish this race. I am indeed blessed to have you.
To Ryan and Rhea, Thank you for your Christ-like Leadership. I cannot thank you enough for your mentorship over the years. Your life is worthy of emulation and I’m proud to be able to learn from you. From my weakness to strength, from nothing to something. The wisdom you have imparted to me has been a great asset throughout my leadership. Thank you for always believing in me even if there are times I doubted myself. You have been such an integral part of my career. Rhea, you are my superhero! Thank you and I love you!
And most of all, I would like to thank my Almighty Father. My savior and my creator. I have found the one true God that truly satisfies my soul. He is the reason why I am here today. This milestone will always remind me that God is alive and he is involved in every detail of our lives. His ways and His plans are undoubtedly perfect for each one of us. I give back all the glory, to my creator, to Jesus Christ the lover of my soul.
As mentioned in Matthew 6:33 “Seek ye first His kingdom and His righteousness and everything will be given unto you”.
In life, there will always be fears and uncertainties, but if you are willing to take that step of faith, success is no mystery. All we must do is surrender to our Lord and allow Him to work on our life.
It takes a dream to get started, a desire to keep going and courage to finish the race.
Be courageous and finish strong!
