At a blog conference last January 4, Piolo was asked a number of questions about his accomplishments and what he would still want to do. He was also asked what makes him feel young. 

"I'll always feel young no matter how old I'll become," Piolo said. "Because you only live your life only once, make it count. Feel young. When you feel old you're going to be limited doing things. When you feel young then you're still going to conquer it. I always tell my friends, I always tell my mom, I always tell whoever I'm with, you only have one life to live. Make it count, feel young. Because otherwise, mariristrikta, malilimitahan ka (you'll feel restricted, limited)."

Aside from hard work, Piolo also said that those who want to make it in showbiz should have the passion for the job.

"Make sure that your heart is ready. Make sure that you are prepared to fall. Because once you get up, you'll be a more experienced person, you're a better person and learn from that experience, carry that with you and try again. You'll just have to try. I never broke on my first, my second, my third attempt but I always never waiver," he said.
