Beyond a woman’s beauty and fashion inclination rests this drive to carve a name for herself all on her own, creating a legacy that goes beyond just being a pretty face admired by most. As inspired by the world-class achievements of many Filipinas like Monique Lhuillier
, Anne Curtis-Smith
, Danica Magpantay
, Lea Salonga
, and lately Xyza Cruz Bacani
, we’ve joined Cream Silk
to pay tribute to the qualities that have truly made these women world-class.
From their achievements in fashion, beauty, theatre, and the arts, these women are not just pretty faces gracing the covers of magazines and features, but instead are also inspiring a new breed of women to follow in their footsteps to be confident, limitless, and unstoppable.
So to inspire you to achieve limitless possibilities as you make your own way into the world, here are 5 traits world-class Filipinas have in common.
Have A Vision
No matter what your goals are in life or what you aim to do in the future, you should always have a vision--whether it be something for the long-term or just for a few months down the road. If you love fashion design, you’re at least ten steps ahead of others by already setting your sights on building a fashion empire lauded the world over. Channel your inner Monique Lhuillier on your way to building an internationally recognized fashion house that dresses some of the world’s top celebrities.
Play To Your Strengths
Take time to discover what you are really good at. You may experience a few hits-and-misses along the way but you will eventually find that one thing that will make you feel like that is what you’re supposed to do. And onceyou’ve found it, start taking the necessary steps to hone your talent. Much like how Lea Salonga knew early on in life that she wanted to sing and took the time to truly hone her craft. Strive to be a little Lea Salonga in the making!
Never Give Up
Live by the life motto: “You never know until you try!” Live life with the attitude that it’s all about embracing risks and going out of your comfort zone to achieve your goals. Want to try your hand at modelling? Take the chance and try out for a number of modelling competitions, looking up to the likes of Supermodel Danica Magpantay who made it big after trying out for Ford Supermodel of the World International.
Go Beyond Your Limits
Even if you feel like you’ve already achieved a lot in your life, know that there will always be much more in life if your continuously go beyond your limits. Need an inspiration story? Look at actress, Anne Curtis, who has already carved out a lucrative career for herself in the entertainment industry in the Philippines. But instead of resting on her laurels, she set her sights on the international industry, eventually landing a leading role in “Blood Ransom,” an American indie film.
Think Outside The Box
Never settle for a dead-end job because no matter where you may be in life, you can always do more. All you have to do is think outside of the box. Life is all about the bigger picture. Know that your job is just one facet of your life and that there are so many other ways to fill your life with colour. Much like how Xyza Cruz Bacani, a domestic worker in HK who impressed the world with her photography. She has now just received a scholarship to study photography in New York City. Pretty cool for something that started out as just a hobby done after work.
