This is a popular greeting amongst the Kanuris’ of Borno
State, North-East, Nigeria; however I do not know the meaning but the response
is ‘Kelewa sele’ if you meet a black
man with tribal marks that runs from the forehead to the nose and also another
long one on the cheeks; you may try this greetings. That would make you
appreciate the diversity of Nigeria.
Let’s proceed into today’s discussion; playing roles versus
real roles. At a point in time, we have had the opportunity of watching a
movie. We would definitely have known that the play series of roles in
different movies with different story-lines but this does not mean that they act
out these roles in real life.
Playing roles is a situation wherein you act according to
the rules of the particular scenario in which you find yourself. This example
cut across board; you could be a grandchild, a child, a sibling, a parent at
the same time but you play these roles as the need arises. This is also similar
in the workplace; there are many people who naturally do not consume the
product they sell but they have the task to market these products to others.
Real roles are the things that we find ourselves doing with
all pleasure. These roles cannot be taken away from the person’s heart. The person
would resolve all the challenges around his innate roles. The person would
carry out those tasks with dexterity. One’s flair would keep one soaring
regardless of the challenge. Real roles are those things that one does not
complain about. There are different talents that manifest to show one’s real
roles. Many people find fulfillment in their real roles.
Either of both roles, you have to skilfully manage both and
ensure that you do not give up in playing both roles. The roles you play might
be your daily living while your real roles are the hobbies that you carry out
with dexterity. You have to be great in both roles and ensure that one do not
suffer because you cannot afford to waste the heavenly deposit in you.
Be dexterous; be a great and skillful manager!
Enjoy your week.
