Vice Ganda said that there is nothing wrong in thinking about yourself and not just other people
Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda has this advice for people who want to improve their lives financially or get rich.
Vice has come a long way from being a stand-up comedian in sing-along bars. He is now one of the most famous comedians in showbiz and one of the richest celebrities in the Philippines.
The It’s Showtime host has been very open about his rags-to-riches story. He came from a humble beginning and was able to find success through his talent and hard work. With all of his achievements, the comedian-host said in a previous interview that his “yaman” is already immeasurable and this is not just all material things.
In a recent episode of the Kapamilya noontime show, based on the article in Bandera, Vice Ganda shared his thoughts on people who want to “yumaman.”
A contest in Tawag ng Tanghalan shared the struggles of being poor. Vice said that he went through that face in life and so he does not want to go back to that again.
The contestant said that all the hard work is for the family. With this, the comedian said that there is nothing wrong in thinking of yourself as well. He said that it is a common thing for people to say that they are working hard for their family, loved ones, or kids.
However, Vice pointed out that it is seldom to hear that a person is working for herself or himself.
“Pero bihirang bihira kong marinig na ‘Para sa sarili ko’. Bakit hindi kayo magsimula sa mga sarili ninyo kasi mas madali ‘yun e. Mas madali ‘yung bakit mo ito ginagawa kasi ‘gusto ko, para sa sarili ko’. Kung gusto mong yumaman para sa pamilya mo, kung gusto mo yumaman para sa anak mo, paano kung mawala ‘yung pamilya mo, mawalan ka ng anak? Hindi mo na ba gugustuhing yumaman?” Vice Ganda stressed.
He added that you need to help yourself first in order to help other people. With this, he encouraged the Madlang People to prioritize their financial gain first before sharing what they earned with the people they love.
