I haven’t met anybody with a normal mind, who doesn’t like to be great.
Greatness is the aspiration of everybody.
People differ in the degree of greatness they desire, but all is they want to be great.
The desire for greatness is universal.
Of course, not everyone achieves their dream to be great.
A good many people do, though, but the majority never get to the threshold of greatness.
Don’t say it’s because God created some people to be great and created others not to be great. God has not done any such thing. God does not discriminate. He doesn’t favour anybody.
God who has created us all keeps the door open to everyone to get through to where they want to go in life.
It is true that if he doesn’t want it, it cannot happen. He is the architect of all the good that happens in the world.
But we have to choose our destination and bring him on board as a Senior Partner.
That is when he will provide the necessary help for us to get the results that we want .
The issue becomes difficult when we do not know what we want; do not decide what we want; are not determined enough to get it, above all do not bring God in as our Senior Partner; and do not stay long enough on it for the fruits to get ripe for harvesting.
People give up too early and miss the wonderful blessings which would have been theirs.
Time is a big determining factor in achievement. You can start and expect to climb to the top of the ladder the same day.
Anyway, this could happen as an exception to the rule, otherwise you always have to give time for your plans to mature; or your efforts to bear fruit.
Waiting time is not wasted time. Waiting is a necessary knot on the success chain. There is a time to plant and a time to harvest the crops; a time to work and a time to stay and wait. We must give time to the plants to bear fruit and mature.
Every success story has an introduction, the body and the conclusion. The body is usually the longest part. If you make the body one paragraph as the introduction and conclusion, you will fail.
There are many people who have gone on retirement and have produced their best work.
What if they had gone and packed their bags home with their dreams in them?
Of course, the dreams would have died.
The question arises: at what age should one bury ones dreams?
My answer is at no age.
If you are already looking at it to be too late, I stand to say it is not. All the chances are available to you to make your mark.
No one can argue the fact that you may not be as energetic as you were when you were much younger, but you definitely have other abilities waiting to be tapped.
Hence, whatever your age, define what you want; define the best way you know to get there, resolve to get there and set out for it.
We can confidently assert that even on retirement as you may be , the sky remains your springboard. That is definitely mine. No doubt about that.
If this belief doesn’t produce the expected results, it would at least have made me feel better, which in reality, is what actually matters.
