Philip Ng Chee Tat is, indisputably, the wealthiest man in Singapore. Worth an estimated $8.7 billion, Philip has been the Chief Executive Officer of Far East Organization Centre Pte. Ltd. since 1991 and is a highly accomplished businessman with years spent as a top executive, steering various companies into seasons of vast profits. But it is not money that motivates Phillip to succeed in the business world, as he told young businessman Matthew Yao, Startup Revival in a recent video.
I had an intimate conversation with my mentor, Philip Ng, recently, which I feel the need to share with you in such a time as this.-I asked Uncle Philip to share a piece of advice for my friends & followers, something he wished he knew when he was younger. Being the #RichestMan in Singapore and amassing a fortune of more than $12 BILLION USD (topping the @Forbes list for the 9th year in a row), trust me, he has some #clout.-With movies like #CrazyRichAsians glorifying wealth, exuberance & excess and #Hollywood media polluting our minds with B.S, we are all too easily sidetracked and too easily derailed from the #truth and what is important in this life.-But the truth is, we are all BROKEN people and we all have a missing piece in us. We try to fill that missing piece in the pursuit of power, money, popularity, sex, alcohol, drugs, achievement or success, and among other things as well. Uncle Philip, myself, and a lot of great men & women in history (think Lincoln, Washington, Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, MLK, Churchill, Helen Keller, Mother Teresa) have come to the same conclusion that THERE IS MORE to this life than just these temporary things, as fleeting as these pleasures may be. That missing piece, my friends, is #JesusChrist.-People ask me how I went from where I was at age 15, getting arrested by police and kicked out of school to where I am today at age 19 – being an up & coming entrepreneur and learning from the world’s greatest #CaptainsOfIndustry. This is how. God can change anyone. He can take you to places you never thought you would go. He can make things possible even when EVERYONE is against you. People talk man, people hate, but it’s all noise. Don’t listen to them. This is my answer to you, my friends. This is the way to lasting fulfilment, peace, love & joy.-REMEMBER: Get rich. Build that company. Become successful. Change the world. But don’t lose your soul in the process.-#forbeslist #billionaire #wealthmatters #mentor #onlylove #billionaireclub #remarkablelife-👉 Follow for more: https://www.instagram.com/matthew_yao/👉 Follow for more: https://www.instagram.com/matthew_yao/👉 Follow for more: https://www.instagram.com/matthew_yao/-👉 My Story: https://www.matthewyao.com/👉 My Story: https://www.matthewyao.com/👉 My Story: https://www.matthewyao.com/-You know someone who needs to see this.

“All of us our broken,” Philip explained. “We all have a missing piece. For me, I discovered that the missing piece was God in Jesus Christ.”
The business leader said he “was always in search of a better life, a better purpose, a better me – a better everything” but that he found himself constantly “just looking at all the wrong things.”
“When I realized there was no better me, or better things without Jesus, then it all snapped in place,” he explained, before encouraging young people “to look deeper” than the world’s prescriptive desire for monetary gain.
“I treasure that more than anything,” the businessman said of his relationship with the Lord, noting that he “wished for everyone to have peace and joy.”
Despite possessing the cash to purchase absolutely anything he could ever possibly want, this giant of world business declared something astonishing as he wrapped up the video: that nothing comes even close to accepting Jesus into your heart. “It sure beats a lot of money and material things that you may have,” he said. “It starts with accepting you are broken and there is a missing piece. For me, personally, that missing piece is our Lord Jesus Christ.”
