Maja Salvador approaches work with this mindset: "Walang boss." This has trained her to treat everyone with equal respect and kindness.

"Kasi sa mundo natin, hindi lang po sa mundo ng showbiz, sa kahit anong klaseng trabaho meron tayo, dapat lagi natin iisipin na walang boss," the ABS-CBN actress tells PEP.ph at her launch as the newest face of Jollibee on November 5 in Ortigas.

"Walang mas nakakaangat, pare-parehas lang tayo na nagtatrabaho para sa sarili, para sa pamilyaKaya ganon dapat attitude mo, maging mabait ka sa lahat. Sabi nga nila, 'Always be kind' para tumagal ka kung saan ka nagtatrabaho, kung saan iyong mundo mo."

Maja has been in the showbiz industry for more than a decade. She credits her lasting success to the people around her and the lessons they have imparted. "Siguro suwerte lang ako na iyong mga nakakatrabaho ko, grabe rin ako i-guide," she continues.

"Sa lahat kasi ng mga nakakatrabaho ko, ginagawa ko silang mga inspirasyon din. 'Tapos kapag nakakatrabaho ko sila, talagang tinatandaan ko iyong mga bilin nila o mga advice nila.

"Ako kasi, sa bawat tao na nakakausap ko every day, mine-make sure ko na may natututunan ako. Iyong minsan akala mo walang sense ang pinag-uusapan niyo, pero kapag titignan niyong maigi iyong personality kung paano niya tignan ang buhay, minsan makakakuha ka doon ng lesson."

How Maja stays motivated

Looking back at her 20s, Maja tells PEP.ph the biggest takeaway she got from those years was: "Exciting ang life"

The Killer Bride star adds, "Kailangan mo lang maging strong dahil ang daming mga bagay na gugulat sa iyo. May mga surprises ang life na minsan maganda, minsan hindi. Pero iyong mga hindi, doon ka magiging strong. Iyong mga magagandang sitwasyon na mangyayari sa iyo, iyon iyong babalanse sa pagkatao mo."

As she moves forward into her 30s, how does the actress stay motivated?

The 31-year-old Kapamilya star says, "Always believe. Hindi ako magsasawang sabihin na always believe. Sa sarili mo, sa dreams mo, and kay God kasi iyon, super combination na iyon.

"Kapag kinapitan mo talaga at nag-believe ka, it will happen."
