We should all take a leaf out of Henry Sy's book, the man who tops the Forbes Philippines' rich list for nine years in a row. Not just him, but those who are among the top 10 richest in the country. Here's the list released by Forbes Philippines just last month:

  1. Henry Sy and family
    The richest person in the Philippines until this day who owns retailers and real estate throughout the country. Mostly known for SM malls and their partnership with Singaporean e-commerce company Lazada that was announced this year.

  2. John Gokongwei, Jr.
    The founder of JG Summit, one of the biggest conglomerates in the country with interests in banking, food, hotel, air transportation, real estate, chemicals and telecommunications. When you hear the name Gokongwei, Robinson's and Universal Robina Corp isn't far behind.

  3. Aboitiz family
    The Aboitiz family controls the Aboitiz Equity Ventures and has major stakes in operations of LaFarge in the Philippines.

  4. Lucio Tan and family
    Lucio Tan's LT Group is in banking, tobacco, property development and spirits.

  5. George Ty and family
    George Ty of GT Capital Holdings is more famous for Metrobank, Grand Hyatt and the Marco Polo hotels.

  6. Tony Tan Caktiong and family
    Tony Tan Caktiong and his family own the empire that is Jollibee.

  7. Jaime Zobel de Ayala and family
    Ayala Corp

  8. Enrique Razon, Jr.

  9. David Consunji
    The founder of the construction company DMCI.

  10. Andrew Tan

These men and their family's accomplishments are truly admirable, when we're talking finance, that is. You know you want to be any of them, I'm no hypocrite, so I admit that I do as well! When you dream, dream big is what they say! So be inspired by them, these rich Pinoys! Who knows, you might just be one to top the Forbes list in the future!

Hint: These men are all entrepreneurs, so we better get rid of the employee mindset we've been conditioned in since our school days to achieve this dream!
