To get through his needs, Henry worked hard day and night with a determination to become successful. He started in a small business with his sari-sari store which helped him provide with his family their daily needs.

Henry Sy also coped in the Philippine with hard living for he has to learn the English language.

After the collapse of the economy in the Philippines because of the World War II, their store got burned down and made Henry Sy's father go back to China. But because of his determination to become successful, he stayed throughout their struggle and rebuild their fortune through his own shoe business in Marikina.



He also had to enroll himself to go to school to have an education but gave it up for his business. He also changed his legal name to get through it and many other things that put him through hardships but he never gave up.

Even with all his failures in business, he still pursued his career on it and never backed down a bit. He persevered to gain success and endured a lot of trials. All of his hardship bear fruit and made him successful.
