My lovely girl,
How are you today? I hope you are fine as usual. That is my prayer for you always.
I hope you continue to take note of the things I tell you. Millions of young girls who are your age today will grow up into great women in their countries. They will be responsible parents who will bring up their children to be responsible citizens as well. Some of them will be rich and powerful and will enjoy the respect of others around them. What about you? Shall you be one of such outstanding women?
Many girls who are the same age like you now will be well married tomorrow; will live in comfortable homes and will drive luxurious cars. I see some of them becoming Directors, Ministers, big business women, multi-millionaires. What about you?
I want you to know that all depends on you. In this world, we each determine what we become. You are the one to determine what to become. Do not fold your arms and wait for people to give you the things that you want. Go for them. Go for what you want and make sure you get it.
If you sit and wait for others to give you what you want, you will end last. I can assure you. Those who stand out on top, who get to the top of the ladder are those who go for it. They are the ones who decide what they want, work hard for it and make sure they get it. This is what I like you to do.
There is no doubt that many of your classmates and age-mates will end their lives at the bottom simply because they will not make the necessary effort to emerge victorious in life. Lazy people who refuse to fight hard to win always end at the bottom.
Look around and you will find many of such lazy persons. They are living in poor homes, eating poorly, cannot send their children to good schools, and are even unable to afford money to pay their hospital bills when they are ill.
I encourage you to do everything not to fall into this category of women. Life is meant to be enjoyed. We are not here to suffer, but to enjoy. To enjoy, you must work for it. Work for your future. Be determined. Nothing beats someone who is determined.
I am confident of you and will continue to pray for you. Once again, my best wishes to you this week. Stay well and feel good.
Your loving dad.
