A self-made man.

He was born to extreme poverty, didn't have the means to education. He sought work menial way, starting out as a janitor. He ventured as extra in the movies and made a stint in radio broadcast, but he wasn't for that. Then he tried the food chain, where his natural affinity in serving earned him recognition. But his craft was further enhanced when he joined the supermarket. Years of dedication made him the store manager. Fifty-three years of his seventy plus age has given him more than the needed money he desired when he was young. His name is Mr. Kit Satukapo and he hails from Quezon City. The money is not of prime importance, because the zeroes keep pouring each day. What matters is sharing the positive outlook in life with the employees, and the love of his family before he retires at night.

Nope, he supermarket is his responsibility. But he owns a store of his own, managed by his wife, in his residential community.

@lovinangelsinstead21 True. Mr. Kit created a family home ambiance in the supermarket. The employees know each other like family.

Rags to riches stories are always fun to hear about. They are especially important for those who tend not to believe that riches can be achieved no matter how hard you strive to reach it. People get rich because they work hard, are good at what they do, always improve themselves, invest wisely and spend frugally, and simply don't stop trying to become richer.

That comment is thus far the most profound I have read in ages. Thank you very much for taking time to respond appropriately. So many good thoughts you have provided there, such as the fun in hearing rags to riches stories, the importance such stories may bring to indifferent people, and a sure recipe and instruction on how to get rich. Yay. Thank you. I did have an insight.

@eileenleyva Very much happy to provide it, especially when we live in a world where so many people simply do not appreciate the opportunity a lot of us have to make it.

@AbbyGreenhill Thank you for sharing that with us. I would say my father was a self-made man too.

Overall, that is a thing of importance as if you cannot share in and enjoy that in life no matter what you have, then what is important?

It is the love of life. When one realizes the beauty of life, no matter the dire circumstances, one strives to live.

I generally like people from all walks of life, but I have special affection for the deprived and deep admiration to those who rose from the bottom and made their lives meaningful.

It is because of his inspirational sharing that, I think, all the merchandisers of the store are as resourceful, with vision of better lives.
