Hi people, I trust you’re doing great. Again, I don’t have any reason whatsoever to complain, life is beautiful. Had a most stressful weekend but it still turned out good.
I was in one of such moods when I go hard into the thought-lane and a thought occurred to me. As humans, we are insatiable. When we want something and eventually get it, we always want something more. We always aim for something higher. My boss was saying when he makes N500 million he’ll move to make N1 billion. This is what makes man the ‘head’ of animals though. Birds don’t worry about making money, as far as they can get seeds or fishes or insects to feed on. Goats don’t bother about status, as far as there are grasses around its immediate environment and also a she-goat.
However, out insatiability gives rise to complains. Someone who has a pair of pants/trousers would be complaining about not having a shirt. Meanwhile someone who has a pair of trousers and a shirt would be complaining about not having a pair of shoes. This is how man thinks, he always thinks. Our starting points and indeed our beliefs drive us to want to achieve and take it a notch further. Dr.Ben Carson was raised by a single poor mum, this was a drive for his achievement, he decided he didn’t want to live that kind of life. His mother even functioned as a drive for him. He turned out to be a great surgeon. President Goodluck Jonathan didn’t have shoes, I’m sure this was a drive that has made him achieve so much. Some of us haven’t gotten to the stages of these people yet, we’re still working towards it. Along the line there were and prolly still are obstacles, challenges, sleepless nights, tears, frustrations. There most definitely were and still are laughters, love, friendship, family. Take a good look at your life, do a little introspection and answer this question; If your life were a dream, what would you do? Would you continue sleeping and pray never to wake up? Or would you gladly jump off the bed? Have a nice day and week ahead!
