Despite all that is happening in
Benue State, not political though, I have decided to associate with them today.
I just said my people in Tiv language from North-Central, Nigeria. How it has
been a great day for you? Am trying to try (one of the phrases that I learnt
from my lecturers)
There are certain children that are seen tilting towards a particular skill early in life, for example Olumide
Oresegun, the painter whose work went viral online recently had started drawing since the age of 4. Interestingly, his
parents did not deter them from pursuing his dream while some parents want
children who would be 'learned' professionals. Do you have an inner conviction or
you need outer motivation alone as you pursue your dreams? Let’s reason
Outer motivation is what keeps
driving people to take certain actions. Usually this is money-motivated. They change
jobs often, the change industry at all times, they do not have a focus as they
continue in the journey of life. They want to be everything at every time. They
do not have a pattern for doing things.
Conviction is the still
silent voice that sounds so loud in the ears of people urging them to
keep pursuing a course that seems dark to others. Many times, people do
not know why
they stick to a particular course of study, a particular company, a
profession or a particular craft. Eventually, they run into fortune over
years stick out their neck in the cold!
It is good to be driven by good
things; it is great to have good job but let the passion and focus be the guiding
principle. I was inspired by the story of Fatai Rolling Dollar, he never left
his guitar despite his misfortune after Kalakuta Republic of Fela
Anikulapo-Kuti was burnt and he lost all his musical equipment.
Have an inner conviction, it
might tarry but you will cross the line that others who ran after outer
motivation for decades have crossed with ease and definitely get to the peak in
I am convinced! Let’s go on in
this race without being weary.
