How do we define a successful life? From Humble Beginnings provides a powerful inspiration in the story of Anthony Norman Sabga and his astonishing journey from poverty and obscurity to become a leader in the business world.

In 1930, at the age of seven, Sabga migrated from Syria to Trinidad and Tobago as part of a family with meager resources, and he could not speak a word of English. But with an inward determination and vision that overcame all odds, he conquered the obstacles in front of him with a persistence and integrity worthy of emulation by people of differing incomes, talents, education, and opportunities.

From Humble Beginnings interviews thirty people who knew Anthony Norman Sabga. He identified these principles of his model for success:

• Complete dedication to one’s vision and intention
• Leadership by example
• Persistence and tenacity
• Balance between work life and family responsibilities
• Nurturing a determination to succeed
• Helping others in need and being kind to others
• Keeping up to date with new knowledge
• Embracing mistakes and learning from them
• Giving the best, and being honest
• Discipline and integrity

One commentator captured the spirit of the man when he said, “Anthony Norman Sabga has shown through his courage, conviction, and commitment to his vision that anyone can achieve his or her dreams by being relentless in their pursuit. Moreover, he was willing to make the sacrifices necessary to achieve the success he wanted.”
