"MOTIVATION"

" You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. However, you may have to work for it. In everything you do, always give a hundred percent and you'll never have to second guess yourself. Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it. Apply yourself. Get all the education you can, but by then do something."

As a manager, my main goal is to always enhance skills and mindset of my team. I don't tend to micro-manage, but values are things I make sure that I'm hands on with. I value the word HARDWORKING since I also started from humble beginnings in this (call center) industry. It was 99% hard work, perseverance, diligence, willingness to learn more, and 1% luck. I always teach my team that we can't get from point A to point B if we don't lift a finger. We should trust ourselves to be able to make things happen or commit mistakes along the way, but learn from it in the process. With this, we are sure of success.

" You see the heart is a strange part of the body. It knows no end when searching for that goal in my mind, that special person or even that dream beyond ourselves. Even if the mind gives up, the heart will continue to beat on and continue to search even long after we say to ourselves, we give up. Use the heart. For it will give you strength, when you have none, the will, to remind you why you started and love for what you are doing when passion is not enough. As long as we are breathing, the heart beats on. If it refuses to give up...then why should we?"
