Investment is something that is not so famous amongst Filipinos. It could probably be attributed to the history of the Philippines. For a long time, the Philippines was under the Spaniards who ruled the country and dictates the lives of its citizens, where the common job or position that Filipinos can get in the society is being a “muchacha” or helpers.

Unless you belong to the upper class and were able to attend school then you could have a better chance of getting a good job. Because of this mindset, Filipinos have dreamed of going to school not to make innovations to make their living a pleasant one but rather just get a better job someday.

Even at present, we often hear parents telling their children to finish their studies so that they can get a good job. Only few parents are telling their children to study well so that you can be an entrepreneur or investors someday. We may be a country that is rich in the natural resources but all of that is just wasted because of the mindset we possess. Could there be any hope for the Philippines for business and investment in the future?

The first thing that Filipinos should do think is to change their mindset and start thinking about investment to improve their lives.
