Karen Davila's Secrets to Success
"It's not how much you make but what you set aside consistently to grow that matters more."
"My lifestyle did not change much even when my salary went up. I started saving around 30 percent of my salary even when it was very small. Today, I am saving 60-70 percent of what I earn. What matters is that you develop a habit that will not be easy to break."
"Wealth is not just about money. Always check the condition of the heart."
"It is not how much you have but what you do with money. It's either you are in control or money controls you. This is when the guidance of the Lord comes in."
These are just few of the wisdom which Karen Davila shared during the Truly Rich Club's Wealth Summit 2015. Her values is anchored on a strong faith and deep personal relationship with the Lord which she started to nurture during the later part of her college days.
In these times of teleseryes and video games, we need role models who inspire us to excel and be the best that we can be so that we can be a blessing to more people like Karen Davila. I must admit that on the day of the Wealth Summit, Karen won my heart. I was teary-eyed as she delivered overflowing wisdom with all the difficult challenges that she went through as it resonates with my own experiences and struggles. And as Bro Bo Sanchez pointed out, he saw many who are in tears because her story resonates to many of us in the audience.
Thank you Ms. Karen Davila for being such an inspiration and role model. Thank you for the wisdom and practical tips you shared, not only about money but life in general.
