The Sharing of A Local Successful Businessman

We always heard from successful businessmen saying that we need to be perseverance, proactive, aggressive, hardworking and creative in order to be successful. This is because they have experience and walk through them. I believe it is true.

Nonetheless, we seldom heard they shared that religious is part of the success. I just came to know there is one businessman shared about it. This man gave all of his success and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, no matter anytime and anywhere.

This businessman is Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, the man behind YTL Corporation Ltd. He is one of the most influential businessmen in Asia. YTL Corporation business varies from restaurant, cement supply, property developer, construction, shopping centers, hotels, REIT, Internet broadband up to power and water utilities all over the world. Of course, the most well-known and making money business would be the power and water utilities.

Francis Yeoh’s family is non-believer in the first place. He came to know Jesus Christ when he was 16. When his family business was in deep crisis, a pastor shared with him that the God can help him to solve his problem if he believe in Him and seek help from Him. And the rests are the history.

If you would like to see how a businessman success based on his religious, or if you are yet to receive Jesus Christ as a personal Lord and savior, you may really want to watch 45 minutes of Francis Yeoh and his sons’ sharing. The interview conversation is 97% in English.

You may think it sounds fake, just because you have yet to receive the blessing and help from God. Imagine he is a repudiate businessman and he has to maintain his integrity. I also heard a few successful local businessmen sharing the same thing with me. So I believe them. Once you get the blessing from God, you will like Francis Yeoh and sharing the gospel to others.

Merry Christmas to you all!
