Actor Jericho Rosales and other personalities—Bea Alonzo, Kim Chui, Gerald Anderson, and CNN Hero Efren Peñaflorida—shared their thoughts on success during the press conference for Chowking's latest ad campaign called "Tikman ang Tagumpay."

The Chinese fast-food chain launched its newest dishes and announced the Ambassadors of Success at Plaza Ibarra on Tomas Morato last Thursday, August 26.

The celebrities were chosen as worthy examples of what life can bring  through hard work and perseverance. Jericho certainly knows what it's like to overcome obstacles. Long before the actor tasted the glitz and glamour of being in front of the cameras, he helped his mother sell fish in the market. Sometimes he delivered pizza to earn an extra buck or two. He has come a long way in showbiz, and he told Christine Bersola-Dabao, host of the program, that he'd like to do more.

PURPOSE IN LIFE. "Gusto ko pang ipagpatuloy yung pagpro-produce ng mga bagay-bagay—pag-produce ng album, TV shows, ng concert. Gusto ko makapag-produce din ng movie. Pang-long-term na ang plans ko, kasi kung gusto mong tikman ang tagumpay, every day dapat may certain goal ka."

The 31-year-old actor explained his idea of success. "Ang success ay iyong nafu-fullfill mo iyong purpose mo. You are successful when you think that you have a purpose. Like for example, sa mga artista, pag nakikita namin na may purpose kung bakit kami naging artista, ibig sabihin nun successful na kami.

"Next ay successful ka pag nase-share mo yung talent mo o kung anong meron ka, sa immediate family mo. Like for example, like for me, blessed ako with the ability na lumabas sa telebisyon at makapagsalita sa harap ng maraming tao," Jericho said.
