My Journey to Financial Freedom

"Success is a journey, not a destination." - Ben Sweetland

Success is a process and truly not a destination. It is the process of becoming who we really are. Success, as Jim Rohn famously said, is something that we attract by becoming an attractive person.

Everyone has a unique journey towards their dream life.Today I want to share the things that I learned along the way in my journey towards my quest for financial freedom.

I Take Time to R E A C H my DREAMS!

Lesson # 1. Take Time to Reflect
                       Awareness is the first step to change. Without change there is no improvement.

Lesson # 2. Take Time to Educate Yourself
                       Learning time is a waiting time and it will never be a wasted time. Be the Master of your craft.

Lesson # 3. Take Time to Act upon your dream
                       Right Actions bring right results. Just do it.

Lesson # 4. Take Time to build Character
                        Commit to improve yourself. It takes time to build one's character and it takes commitment.

Lesson # 5. Take Time to Help other people reach their dreams too
                         Pay it forward. You can get what you want if you will just help enough people get what they want in life as Zig Ziglar said.

I will discuss with you each lesson in my next blogs. Hope I inspired you to dream and reach for it as I do.

To the good life and SUCCESS,

Emmanuel U. Galapon

The Significant 20 Hours Building your Wealth

We all have the same 24 hours a day but some use their time wisely to build their fortune and some just squander it to unproductive activities. Some working people want to invest time building side-line business but they feel that no more spare time left for them.But if one truly want to use time efficiently and use some 20 hours for wealth, then that would make some significance.

It is a great struggle on my part to use my time efficiently. One of my lesson in life is that if I have to achieve my dreams and build my fortune I have to be master of time and not only good manager of it.

Here is how you can overcome the NO TIME SYNDROME and have your significant 20 hours to build your fortune.



There are 168 hours in every week. If you spend it as below, then you
would have 20 hours left over at the end of the week.

Activity                      Time spent                         Time remaining each week
Sleep                   8 hours/day        56 hours/wk                       112 hours
Full time job         8 hours/day        40 hours/wk                       72 hours
Commuting           2 hours/day        10 hours/wk                       62 hours
Eating                  2 hours/day        14 hours/wk                       48 hours
Family and
Entertainment       2 hours/day        14 hours/wk                       34 hours
Miscellaneous       2 hours/day        14 hours/wk                     20 Hours

So where do the remaining 20 hours typically go?
What you do between 8:00am and 5:00pm will feed your family.
What you do between 5:00pm and 8:00am will

If you are willing to do what most people won't do today,
Then you will be able to do what most people can't do

Why not spend the extra 20 hours on your business

To the Good Life

What Makes a Winner that Separates from a Loser


Winner is always part of the answer;
Winner always has a program;
Winner says, "Let me do it for you";
Winner sees an answer for every problem;
Winner says, "It may be difficult but it is possible"; 
 When a Winner makes a mistake,he says, " I was wrong";
 Winner makes commitments;
 Winners have dreams;
 Winners say, "I must do something";
 Winners are a part of the team;
 Winners see the gain;
 Winners see possibilities;
 Winners believe in win/win;
 Winners see the potential;
 Winners are like a thermostat;
 Winners choose what they say;
 Winners use hard arguments, but soft words;
 Winners stand firm on values but compromise on petty things;
 Winners follow the philosophy of empathy:
        "Don't do to others what you don't want them to do to you";
 Winners make things happen;

Loser is always part of the problem.
Loser always has an excuse.
Loser says, "That's not my job."
Loser sees a problem for every answer.
Loser says, "It may be possible but it is too difficult."
When a Loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn't my fault."  
Loser makes promises.
Losers have schemes.
Losers say, "Something must be done."
Losers are apart from the team.
Losers see pain.
Losers see problems.
Losers believe for them to win someone has to lose.
Losers see the past.
Losers are like thermometers.
Losers say what they choose.
Losers use soft arguments, but hard words;
Losers follow the philosophy,
        "Do it to others before they do it to you."
Losers stand firm on petty things but compromise on values.
Losers just watch things happen.

So choose who you want to be.

To your good life,

The Winner's Creed

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win, but think you can't
It's almost certain, you won't. 
If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
Since out in our world we find
success begins with a person's will,
It's all in your state of mind. 
Life's battles don't always go
to the stronger or faster hand;
But sooner or later
the person who wins
is the one who thinks....."I CAN".

10 Amazing Life Lessons From Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein has long been considered a genius by the masses. He was a theoretical physicist, philosopher, author, and is perhaps the most influential scientists to ever live.

10 Amazing Life Lessons You Can Learn From Albert Einstein:

  1. Follow Your Curiosity

    "I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious."

    What piques your curiosity? I am curious as to what causes one person to succeed while another person fails; this is why I've spent years studying success. What are you most curious about? The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success.
  2. Perseverance is Priceless
    "It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay with problems longer."

    Through perseverance the turtle reached the ark. Are you willing to persevere until you get to your intended destination? They say the entire value of the postage stamp consist in its ability to stick to something until it gets there. Be like the postage stamp; finish the race that you've started!
  3. Focus on the Present

    "Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves."

    My father always says you cannot ride two horses at the same time. I like to say, you can do anything, but not everything. Learn to be present where you are; give your all to whatever you're currently doing.

    Focused energy is power, and it's the difference between success and failure.
  4. The Imagination is Powerful

    "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge."

    Are you using your imagination daily? Einstein said the imagination is more important than knowledge! Your imagination pre-plays your future. Einstein went on to say, "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination." Are you exercising your "imagination muscles" daily, don't let something as powerful as your imagination lie dormant.
  5. Make Mistakes

    "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."

    Never be afraid of making a mistake. A mistake is not a failure. Mistakes can make you better, smarter and faster, if you utilize them properly. Discover the power of making mistakes. I've said this before, and I'll say it again, if you want to succeed, triple the amount of mistakes that you make.
  6. Live in the Moment

    "I never think of the future - it comes soon enough."

    The only way to properly address your future is to be as present as possible "in the present."

    You cannot "presently" change yesterday or tomorrow, so it's of supreme importance that you dedicate all of your efforts to "right now." It's the only time that matters, it's the only time there is.
  7. Create Value

    "Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value."

    Don't waste your time trying to be successful, spend your time creating value. If you're valuable, then you will attract success.

    Discover the talents and gifts that you possess, learn how to offer those talents and gifts in a way that most benefits others.

    Labor to be valuable and success will chase you down.
  8. Don't Expect Different Results

    "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

    You can't keep doing the same thing everyday and expect different results. In other words, you can't keep doing the same workout routine and expect to look differently. In order for your life to change, you must change, to the degree that you change your actions and your thinking is to the degree that your life will change.
  9. Knowledge Comes From Experience

    "Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience."

    Knowledge comes from experience. You can discuss a task, but discussion will only give you a philosophical understanding of it; you must experience the task first hand to "know it." What's the lesson? Get experience! Don't spend your time hiding behind speculative information, go out there and do it, and you will have gained priceless knowledge.
  10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better

    "You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else."

    To put it all in simple terms, there are two things that you must do. The first thing you must do is to learn the rules of the game that you're playing. It doesn't sound exciting, but it's vital. Secondly, you must commit to play the game better than anyone else. If you can do these two things, success will be yours!

The Pursuit of Happyness

The inspiring, true-life story of a single dad who went from living on the streets to owning his own brokerage firm is brought to the big screen by superstar Will Smith, appearing for the first time opposite his real-life son Jaden Smith. Set in early-'80s San Francisco, the film charts the hard times and eventual comeback of Chris Gardner, a suddenly single salesman who has custody of his son, but finds that providing for the two of them is a challenge in the increasingly unstable economic climate. He struggles to work his way from unpaid intern at Dean Witter to something more substantial, even as life continues to offer him setbacks. I am so inspired with this movie because of similarities of experiences. No matter what life you have as of today I believe that your past and present don't equal with the life that you have in the future.  

To the good life!

In Quest for Financial Freedom

For the last 25 years of my life I've been struggling financially. Money is so hard for me. I keep wondering why some people live as if money flows like a river or rain into their pocket. I also wonder if they have the kind of a golden touch like King Midas.I really don't know why I always ended up broke no matter how hard I try to work and earn and save.
Little did I know that I was programmed to fail.I can't figure it out how to get out of this mess in my life. I read lots of books on financial success, attended every seminars I could see, get into small business but still I failed.
I envy those people who are happy living the lifestyles that I've been longing to have in my life. I envy those people who can afford to dine in restaurants where the elites are present.I got this question in my head. Am I born to fail?

But hope came to me when I read the classic book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. My journey to financial freedom started to change after reading this great book. I learned that I have to start finding who the real ME. In quest for financial freedom is to become the person who I need to be and do the things I need to do in order to achieve and have the success that I want in life.

If you find yourself having the same struggle just cheer up. You are not alone in this journey. This is the purpose that I want to offer my life into, to help people like you find the answer that you are looking for. Just like the answer that I found I believe you can have it too.

To the good life!
