My story is one of extremes. Extreme pain, extreme joy. Extreme darkness, extreme light. Rock bottom to mountain top. Rags to riches.
My story teaches me some lessons about life. Top amongst them, you can rise from oblivion to stardom. You can go from a hut to an ivory tower.
How can that be possible? I will share that secret with. First, my story:
I was once in rags. I never knew what it meant to wear a new dress, new shoes, and new whatever.
I went for days without food. I would watch people with a mixture of envy, bitterness, wonder and sorrow as they wined and dined like lords.
It looked like I was not born for the good things of life.
And many people, without saying so, made me understand I could never amount to anything; that my place was at the bottom; that I had no choice but to accept my lot in life.
But I refused to accept this declaration. Some voice within me, silent but strong, kept telling me I was not born to be among the downtrodden; that despite what I was going through, I had a place at the top which I needed to gun for and claim.
This was what I did. That was the voice I listened to. I set out to create a new story of my life.
I told my God in the silence of my heart I knew he had a great plan for me and I would leave no stone unturned to make it come true.
I asked him to be on my side; to help me; to guide me to my destiny as designed by him.
My decision taken, I went to work. Each time someone or something told me I was meant to be at the bottom, I refused to listen. Instead, I told myself I was meant to be at the top.
It was with this belief in mind that I kept working. Day in and day out, I worked.
I worked. I sweated. Even when I was tired, I continued to work. I strained every nerve.
I met with disappointment. I failed many times in many projects I tried; but refused to call it quits.
Many times I reminded myself that quitters never win and winners never quit.
It was a long, hard journey. The road was not smooth. Many potholes paved my path. Many times I slipped and fell. But I did not stay down. I got up and continued.
It went on and on. Then, before long, I began to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
And before I knew it, I was living a brand new life. I was living in an ivory tower. Today, I rank among the richest men in the world.
I have given my story that you may learn if you want to make life me. There is no reason for you to waste your life in misery. You can become whatever you want to be.
Get what I did to become one if the richest persons in the world and follow the same steps. You will become as rich as me, if not more.
