Do you know who is the richest Filipino for 2012? Maybe you already know. Yes, it is Henry Sy based on the annual ranking published by Forbes Magazine. Henry Sy is still the richest Pinoy for several years in a row.

I think you already know why he’s on the top. It’s obvious, look at the shopping malls in the Philippines. Most of them are owned by SM which is led by Henry Sy and family.

What I have noticed among the richest people in 2012 is they didn’t accumulate their wealth in just a short period of time. It took them many years or decades before they reached what they have now. I believe it is the best way to become rich, you become rich slowly but consistently. Not by get-rich-quick method which is only temporary and short-lived.

Another thing, they accumulated their wealth through the business they have built over the time. If you are building your own business now, take heart, you could be one of the richest people in ten or twenty years from now.
