MANILA, Philippines – They say that dreams do come true, only if we are courageous enough to strive hard for it. This holds true to one dreamer who finally achieved his “big dream” at the age of 26.

Jhay- R Reyes proudly posed behind his 2-storey mansion and car as he inspires everyone to dream big. At the age of 26, he has achieved a lot and is now a “millionaire.”

The young millionaire share that his journey to success was also a “bumpy ride with ups and downs.” Reyes shared that after college, he quit several jobs and had 5 employers within 4 years. He also had to endure 2 heartaches and worse, his father even got sick. But Reyes held on this dream.

The young man explained that he is always reminded of the dream he made back when he is college. Reyes said, “ I had this goal to be a millionaire at the age of 25, with a car and a home I can call my own.”

While still studying as an “iskolar ng bayan” at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), Reyes started investing in stocks. He said, “Started with an investment of 4 digits (9100+) exactly 10 years ago while studying as a iskolar ng bayan in PUP and trade I guess more than 1000 buys and sells to make it what it is now.”

10 years after, Reyes is proud that he was able to reach his dream with “pure hardwork, loyalty and honesty.”

Reyes said that he built his credibility over the years. He said, “Every cent, peso I have now came from investments, stocks to be specific. This house came from one stock, and that car came from one stock also. Without any debt, without fooling other people.”

In the end, the self-made millionaire motivated everyone to never give up on their dreams, no matter how impossible it may sound. Reyes said, “When you dream, make it a goal and for you to achieve your goal, you should move to achieve those goals and stop complaining and whining about the things you can’t control.”
