Nothing hurts me more like seeing a young agile fine gentle man just wasting his life.
(it’s even worse when such a person is a relative or someone I know very closely)
Just Moving like a fool with no destination. No plan whatsoever. Just occupying space like mata.
Take a good look around you, do you like what you see or you are still dreaming of something better? then keep working hard.
I went to bed thinking about these words… “RRY, Nothing will stop you once you know where your headed.”
Thank God we don’t look like what we’ve been through.
I know your parents died when you were 2years old. Sorry but you have to get over it sweetie.
I know no one is willing to dash you money. Is that such a big deal?
(Go get your own money jare)
Maybe you have mean uncles and aunties. So what?
I know all these are unfavorable conditions but why let it be a ‘show stopper?’
The thing is, whatever you think you have gone through or your currently experiencing, someone out there has faced much worse so get over it sweetie.
Nothing is new under the sun. Period!
Notwithstanding, you can decide to throw a big sympathy party by making statements like… “I come from a very poor background”, I wasn’t privileged to go to the best school like others, I wasn’t this,I wasn’t that, (name all) and remain there forever.
Or better still, allow your bitter experience’ to spur you to want to make something beautiful out of your life.
Lemme ask you something:
Who do you think has time to be encouraging you all the time?
You gotta be your own encourager mehn.
Tell yourself “I can do this” and I will do it.
I asked a young man the same age with me one time what his plans and goals are: he just gave me vague non specific general answers like” I want to be very rich and successful” (very good then)
I asked what his plans for achieving that and he told me, no one plans to be successful, it just happens to you or you grow with it. (I was so disturbed with his answer that I tried to navigate his mindset towards the winning side but he obliged so I let it be.)
…You can useless your life and blame everyone for not helping you.
If you like, drop out of school and yoke your failure to your uncles and aunties or siblings.
10, 20, 30 years from now, if you’re still alive? What will your life amount to?
Will you be begging or lending?
Will you be a problem to your family or a solution? (Think about it)
Are you a blessing or migrane headache?
Are you just existing or you are truly living?
What plans do you have for your life?
What are you doing now to get you to your resting place?
I intend to be very successful and I know what exactly to do to get me there. (They are called principles)
I know we do not have the promise of tomorrow but we will still get to work.
