Winning is a word that is exciting to hear and great to be associated with but only a few people ever taste it. Every person want to be associated with a winner(champion).
People like stars are celebrated in society because they have emerged 'winners' in there respective field. Loosers are shuned and most times loosing is associated with shame. no wonder most people when they loose they cant withold tears.
There isnt any big difference therefor between a winner and a looser. Lets look at two football teams. They all have equal number of players, had the same period in which to prepare, have same chances of scoring but only one team will be crowned.
This shows that life displays the same opportunity to a winner as it does to a looser. The bible says in proverbs that the poor and the rich have one thing in common: God. this means God equips every person with 'equipment' for making it in your life and how far you will go in bring this potential out to be a victor in life is entirely dependant on you.Look at a classroom set up.
The same teacher delivers the topic to all students. they have the same books to study, same duration in which to write the exam and yet they score different marks. Some settle for 40,50 and other get 90,100 percent.The difference is with the way the minds are employed to yield.
Everyone sitted here is a potential winner, potential millionare,potential successful bussinessman, potential proffessor.
The solution is in your hands and not in any one else's. Your background
is not an issue. hey! Check out some of the most successful bussiness giants in the world, they dont have a formal educational background and yet they feed graduates. This leaves you and me with an interesting thought.
Educational qualification doesnt equal to success. We have people with degrees and yet they are not successful. What counts is how wide you engage your mental faculties to advantage you in your pursuit of life.
So the answer you have be looking for is not far fetched. its right above your neck.
you have what it takes to make a difference in your life, family and country. Once you begin to think beyond your current level, begin to see beyond your nose then you will become a force to reckon with.
Someone said 'opportunity is usually missed by most people because it comes dressed in an overose and looks like work'. Opportunities are lying idle every where waiting for men to open there eyes, engage their minds and explore them. Dont wait for a 100million loan to get you started in bussiness, you can start where you are and with what you have. You can start with a 'Kantemba' to a shop to a mall. Starting small is not wrong but staying small is not good. Some people started small and today own airlines, others also started small and today they are even smaller.
You have ideas in you head that are begging to be released and explored. You have potential inside you that is wailing to be unveiled to this generation.
God bless you and SEE YOU AT THE TOP.
