Create that future and believe in the promises of the tomorrow as you sojourn on your career. In the deepest of the night, it takes a ray of sunlight for that curtain to fade. If you are a student, the challenge is to get the best from school despite any obstacle. Look into the horizon and see the promises of good grades. Some say grades do not matter – they are wrong.
Grades measure your focus, tenacity and commitment to set an objective and accomplish it. That your “A” is a validation you can have a WIN. The letter means nothing but the process is what matters. That process shapes you to make As in life!
Many years ago, a young man joined us in Diamond Bank Lagos. He received his first paycheck. I saw him crying – and I asked him what was happening. He told “Somebody, I could have missed this pay if my circumstances had resulted in dropping out of school”. He went to narrate how he ate once for 6 months! I responded, “Pally, that was history, now you can feed a small village. Most here have similar experiences”.
Do not doubt the promises of tomorrow. #TakeAction. And #Believe.---
