Remember a book should not be judged by its cover. So are many people who have been considered by others too weak (maybe handicapped, retarded or any life issues..) to succeed but time after time we have seen those same people living an impactful life in the midst of the difficulties. Google 'life without limb', it will give you a great insight.
What’s your excuse for being on a spot for so long? Do you think you’re not capable or you feel you do not have the ability? The thing is; everyone is capable of doing something. You just need to be smart enough to know what that is. So if you’re weak and need to get to the top, let me remind you of some of the points to take you there.
Make attempts: I believe there’s hardly anyone who do not have a dream of who and what they want to become. However, until you make an attempt, there will be no actualisation. You need someone to believe in you then, believe in yourself by venturing out to pursue your dreams. Start by; setting goals to guide your move and every step. When you succeed at one, set higher ones and keep moving. Yeah! You might fail but learn to let your failures lure you into success by learning not to make the same mistake twice. A fresh failure should bring along with it refreshed knowledge depending on how much you’re willing to stand. That brings us to our next point...
Willingness: Your success in life is based on your willingness to learn and be better. Your will is your drive and will continue to make a new turn at every road block. Remember the bus driver is in charge driving the bus and the conductor help with collection of fees. That is the situation, no one will drive the vehicle meant for you. They can only assist you in making the journey easier.
Self evaluation: What you think of yourself is what will reflect for others to see. Do you think you look different or life hasn’t been fair to you, too many challenges? I will tell you that; you’ll be great in life. Hey! Only if you let the world feel the positive effect of how different you are. I once saw on ‘moment with MO’ some years ago of a lady who's retarded but a successful lawyer. She was laughed and scorned but what that did to her was that she always gets to be noticed and singled out. The rest is her appearance on such a prestigious show. I wonder what her mockers will be thinking at that point if they’d saw her.
The others you should be very familiar with such as determination, courage, hope and faith and the need to work smart and hard.
Above all, let the Lord come first, for the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all, Ecclesiastes 9:11.
Have the most fruits bearing week ever! Cheers!!.
