I my many years of observation, I have found 10 things that are common with great people. The greater height you see and aim to attain doesn't just come on the platter of gold.
Never envy a mans wealth if you can't go through his suffering/experience. What differentiate a successful man from an unsuccessful man is the secret one was able to get and hold unto that the other couldn't.
Being great today is one thing we all hope to attain and as a result we try all sort of means to climb up this ladder but may I put it to you that becoming rich does not make you great.
You will agree with me that there are lots of rich men in nigeria today that people don't even know or Recognize. Becoming great goes beyond the things you acquire and flaunt.
Great people are people who make impact in their generation. They make differences, distinctions, inventions and innovations.
Great men dies but their name never dies.
You know it interests me to challenge something in you, to bring out an orientation that goes beyond let me just go to school, study and feed my family. NO!
You owe the world an amount you must pay. As big as the world is and as numerous as its there are people who's names can never be mentioned and you won't regard them.
You would agree with me that there are people who are dead but the way they are been mentioned and talked about, it seems like they still live.
I have read about people(great men), I have heard about them, I am also taking up that courage that coming generations will speak about me.
Come to think of it, the people we choose as mentor and role models today, why do we choose them?
To be factual, its because they have impacts to to their world. Ask yourself,
" Will I not be part of those nigerians who die and just go without an impact or legacy"
Most of us conclude that Nigeria don't support talent and you back it up with various examples, you start something, do your inventions, bring out your concept and see what will follow.
Your luck might take you high but what if you fail to bring it out. Let it be that I tried something but it didn't go viral but without doing anything, do give any excuse.
Its not a must you build a machine, there is a difference you can give, there is something in you nobody has ever thought of.
My motive for creating kayodesblog.in is to meet the needs of people, give them tips for greatness, motivate and inspire, give advice and so on. It might look small now but you can't judge its tomorrow.
