Searching for my way;
I want to go away
From where I stand;
I want to move;
To another land;
To the promised land;
So I am searching
For my way;
Failure is not my land;
Poverty is not my lot;
For a life of wealth,
I am ordained;
I want to go
To a land of riches;
Where abundance flows;
And poverty unavailable;
That is where
I want to live;
The rest of my life.
There, I will live.
And so I will search on
For my way till I find.
The person who gets money
is like a bird that hatches eggs
it didn’t lay.
In the prime of life he will lose
and in the end he is nothing but
Yadingo cried as he had never cried before. He found it hard to believe that his stay in college had come to an end.
He loved the institution. It was his dream college He had worked for it; and prayed for it; and both his hard work and prayers had been rewarded. He was among the few who passed the interview to go to the prestigious institution.
Great was his joy when this happened. He saw a bright future for himself. He knew he would keep soaring higher and higher; and for that, he thanked God.
Unfortunately, his joy was short lived. Small as the school fees was, his father could not afford it; and the principal asked him to leave. He had no choice but to obey.
First, he wailed as if someone had died. Then packed his bag and left.

Yadingo was poor; but refused to let poverty put him down.
He had a dream, and was determined to fight for it come true.
He had read many’from- rags-to-riches’ stories which narrated how people with very poor backgrounds found their way to ivory towers.
inspired by such thrilling stories, Yadingo decided that he would, someday, be somebody in his country to reckon with; why not beyond?

“Are you among those people that I hear others calling self-made men or who boast that they are self-made? That is not true. No one is a self-made man. If you see someone sitting at the mountain-top of success, know that they did not get there by themselves. Unless other people help, you cannot get anywhere.” Romilia Quotes
“To love money is not an evil thing as many of us tend to paint it. We are the ones who have made it look so. It is only by loving money that we can attract it to us. If you see someone who is rich, that is someone who loves money. There is a law of nature which attracts the things we love to us and repels the things we hate. You must stop blaming people for loving money and start loving money yourself if you want to be rich. If you don’t, I can guarantee you will die poor.” (Romilia Quotes)
Poverty is a problem to many people. People’s success has been hindered by poverty. Many young people drop out of school because their parents cannot afford to sponsor them. A lot of people with business talents cannot do business because they lack business capital. Some go into business but soon close it because they lack the capital to keep them going. Still, others dance on the same spot because they do not have enough money to expand. From all this you can see that lack of money or poverty is a real problem for many people.
If that is your problem, I do not want it to continue to be. I have no way of pouring money into your life but I have the power of encouragement. Encouragement is at times more powerful than money. Many people have gone from grass to grace because of the power of encouragement. If lack of money is a hindrance to you, I want you to benefit from the power of encouragement and move from where you are to where you like to be.
Those who benefit from the power of encouragement and move from poverty to riches are those who are open to encouragement. They accept encouragement. They open themselves up to encouragement. This simply means they respond to encouragement by doing what they are encouraged to do.
If you are open to encouragement and do what you are encouraged to do, I am confident you will overcome poverty (that is if you are poor) and go on to do marvels with your riches. \
Bear in mind that riches are not just physical cash. People are riches. Through people you can do things that money cannot do. Through people also, you can get the money you want.
If money is your problem then, I encourage you to overcome it. To do this you have to start by taking a decision to overcome it. Next, begin to explore ways to overcome it. Third, if you find difficulties, seek help. You may not do it all alone, but with good help you can.
I want to assure you that this works. Make it work and it will work for you. How do you make it work? Very simple: when you start, never stop until you have made it. Keep going. Keep searching. Keep exploring. Keep falling and rising until you are up to fall no more.
I encourage you to fly on the wings of poverty to riches. Let the fact that you have a poor background or are living in poverty be the reason for your outstanding success in life. It is possible. It has been the case with many people. It will be the case for you if you make it work; and you have what it takes to make it work. Bring it out of you. If you have any questions, ask. You will find a lot of people around here who will give you answers not just me.
Thanks for reading. Now, to action. Do something now about it!

As I look critically at society and its people,
On my journey to find how people
Make the most of their lives,
And how people can
Make the most of their lives,
I find many people
Who are unable to get to the top
Quick to think negatively about
Those who are at the top;
Or who are making their way to the top;
It’s not everybody who gets to the top
Through foul means;
It’s a false belief that the good guys
Always end last in the race of life;
One mustn’t be unscrupulous
To get to the top;
One mustn’t dirty one’s hands to make it big;
I have never believed in getting what one wants
Through unscrupulous means;
To enrich oneself through foul means
Or to gain power through unscrupulous means
Is to make oneself an elephant on sandy feet;
It is possible to become rich
Without cheating anyone;
It is possible to rise to power in a clean way;
That is what I want for you;
That is what the world needs;
That people realize their full potential in clean ways;
In ways that are right;
In ways that don’t break any law, human or divine.
