Perhaps one of the hardest things to do. Discovering one’s true purpose could be a very scaring and demanding task especially without guidance. Growing up in Nigeria as a talented kid, I faced tremendous challenges not just in finding my trueself but developing and maximing my skills.
I’m not naive to the problems in this part of the world, majorly being poverty which has enslaved the way we think. We end up having what I call a survival or slave mentality instead of a domineering mentality by so doing, limiting our dreams and we most of the time, eventually never disvover our true self. I’ve come across all sorts of talents in the streets of Nigeria with extremely pitiful stories. I watched a very good football player end up a cab driver. I saw a talented singer end up a banker. I even had a discussion with a police man who told me his dream was to be a professional dancer and the list goes on. Each day these people carry the frustration of their lost hopes and dreams to their jobs. How then do we expect a functional society? when we have the wrong people in the wrong places. When we have a teacher as a soldier, an actor as a politician or a footballer as a driver. I mean I know a girl with a degree in computer science but can’t operate a laptop, that’s just how lost most of us are.
Dig down through your inner self and find out your true worth and purpose, only then can we do great things, only then can we truly be a great nation. Search for ttrue education and develop your own ideologies and grow with them. Read about great people in your chosen career or profession, the struggles and challenges they faced to succeed just then you will see you’re not alone. The problem of Nigeria is not bad leaders but no great men so there are no true role models. The U.S brags about being the leading world power, but why wouldn’t they, when they have the biggest empires in the world originating from their country. They have the Facebook, Google YouTube, Apple, Microsoft, Hollywood…just about everything that influences our daily lives, they control. These empires were built from scratch by mere citizens not the government. The inspiration and motivation it brings to the average kid born in that society and even to the world at large is unquantifiable. But who do we really have to look up to in our society? Who do we really have to admire as a role model to personal achievement and true success? Be it in sports, music, politics, movies, medicine, police department or in any field so ever.
The important questions you sincerely need to answer to yourself are:
– Have you ‘found me’ in your inner self?
– Are you in the right career or profession?
– Are you great at what you do or chosen to do?
– Are you a genuine inspiration to people in that field and beyond?
– what impact do you intend to leave in that field?
There’s work to be done and it starts with us all. You have much more power in you than you think all you need do is discover it and you can achieve greatness, not just for yourself but for our country at large. You can make great impact in world from where you are reading this now regardless of your race or geographical location. Great things don’t always start up big so never despise your little beginning. Don’t give up in the struggle, the challenges are only there to make you greater. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
I believe in You, Do you believe in yourself?
