Breadwinners are modern day heroes. They work very diligently to provide an abundant life to their families. They think about their loved ones’ needs before themselves. Pinoy breadwinners are often the least understood and least thought of.
Being a breadwinner is hard. If you resonate with any of these, we compiled 15 quotes that will inspire breadwinners working hard today.
Nothing worth having comes easy.
How much is your family’s dreams worth to you? How much is your children’s education worth to you? Remember this: nothing worth having comes easy. You always have to work for it. Even winning the lotto requires effort.
All roads that lead to success have to pass through hard work boulevard at some point.
There is no success without hard work. So, if you think that you are working hard now, keep going. But remember to work smart also. Working hard, paired with working smart, will make you closer to your dreams and goals faster. Be willing to get dirt on your hands.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. (Tim Notke)
Would you agree that not all talented people succeed in life? I believe in this. I have seen many Pinoy breadwinners who have average skills and talents but have succeeded in building their wealth. Their secret? Hard work. It pays off.
You can’t cheat the grind, it knows how much you have invested, it won’t give you anything you haven’t worked for.
You cannot grow a mango tree if you have not planted a seed to the ground. Same it goes for working hard, saving and investing. You will never experience the rewards of your hard work if you have not exerted the effort in the first place. Embrace the grind. It is a part of life.
Dream big, work hard, stay focused and surround yourself with good people.
How large is your dream for yourself? For your family? Think about it every time you are hustling and working. Stay focused on your goals. Do not be sidetracked by problems. Also, surround yourself with people who will push you to be stronger. Either you run away from hard work or you run towards it and come out stronger and wiser than before. You choose.
Be thankful for what you have. Work hard for what you don’t have.
I have heard many Pinoys said this before: “Kaya ako mahirap kasi mahirap ang pamilya namin.” Well, being born in a poor family is not your fault. But, it will be your fault if you die and leave your family still poor. You have all the power to change your situation.
Be grateful for the blessings you have now. Then work hard for the things you don’t have, especially if it is for your loved ones.
Hard work is what separates the winners from the losers.
There is a reason why you are called a breadwinner. You are a winner. Never settle becoming a loser. Work hard. You will amaze yourself one day.
Don’t give up. The beginning is always the hardest. Life rewards those who work hard at it.
Everything is hard at the start. But with pushing further and never quitting, you will be rewarded by life itself for your efforts. Keep going.
A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. (Colin Powell)
Do not be like Juan Tamad. Your dreams will not be served to you on a plate. Success is not gained by magic. So is saving, building your wealth and investing. Dreams require work. Be willing to work hard for them.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle. (Abraham Lincoln)
Do not just passively wait for opportunities to come to you. Go out. Seek for opportunities. Those who hustle smartly work their way to their goals faster than those passive dreamers.
