Many of these people are honest.
But, some have waited too long while some are still waiting.
Those who have waited too long are now eager (and desperate) to achieve success.
The school fees of their children, the family financial responsibilities, the need to take care of their parents, build house, buy good cars are so real and pressing
This group of people want nothing but success NOW
I’m sorry, most time these people are failures.
These people are failures because they are not ready to pay the price.
They want to succeed NOW, today.
I once hosted one of the people in this category in my house for few days.
He asked me, “What can I do to start making money NOW?”
I replied him with my usual answer, “I don’t know!”
Unfortunately, he went home without doing anything (because what I encouraged him to do cannot bring money NOW)
The second group of people are people who are still waiting.
Unlike the first group, this group are not under much pressure (everyone is under some pressures)
But these people are procrastinating and they are likely to keep on procrastinating till they will be overwhelmed by pressures, just like the first group.
I know another man in this group.
He has procrastinated for more than 9 years and he’s now desperate about starting a business.
What do I want to teach you here?
If you’re not under much pressures now, go out there and do something CRAZY with your life
Stop making excuses!
Stop complaining about what you have and don’t have
Go out. Get your hands dirty.
Do any ugly thing you can do (as long as it’s not a sin)
As you do this, keep on reading good business books and develop relationships with business-minded people.
You’ll breakthrough and succeed.
If you’re in the first group.
If you’ve procrastinated and complained the last 5-10 years.
The first thing you need to understand is that nature doesn’t give room for short cut.
Most people think they can take short cut. That’s why they get involved in pozzi schemes, gambling etc.
Unfortunately, these people always end up becoming poorer.
Forget the hope of making million TOMORROW.
Nature will not allow you to do that and if you try to do it in some illegal ways (drugs and harm robbery), you know the implications.
If you know you’ve procrastinated many years before now, the best thing you can do now is to stop procrastinating.
Start focusing your energy on building your own empire.
Don’t believe it’s too late
Colonel Sander started Kenturkey Fried Chicken when he was 65 years old, yet he became a millionaire before he died because he focused on what he wanted to achieve.
No. He didn’t have the money.
He simply had the passion and the willingness to pay the price.
Don’t believe in get-rich-quick
People who believe in get-rich-quick end up become poor all their live
Be willing to start (small), NOW, with whatever you have.
Keep on learning and keep on believing in yourself.
I believe in you and I believe in Africa
I believe Africa can become a better place if you and I stop complaining and start doing something great with our lives.
Don’t think you need Africa to become better
Africa needs you to become better
Don’t think you need Africa to become richer
Africa needs you to become richer
Don’t think of what Africa can do for you.
Think of what YOU can do for Africa
You Friend and Lover,
