My son, you can make it.
I can not ride a bicycle, but you can.
I can not somersault, but you can.
You surpassed me in acrobatic and athletic.
Then if I’m very good in Mathematics, you can be better.
I first failed English Language before I became fluent.
If I made it as an engineer, you can be a better one.
When I dabbled into teaching, I’m still making a hedge.
My son, you can become anything you make up your mind to be in life.
There is nothing wrong in being a village boy, but everything is wrong having a village mentality – smallness.
Where you lived or are living is not a factor, but who you are – your mentality.
I’ve read about a village boy that became one of the Nigerian best medical doctors and entrepreneurs.
I’ve read about a village boy that became a world renown neurosurgeon.
I’ve read about a man that couldn’t read and write at first but later became a lawyer.
I’ve heard a president of one of the G8 nations that told the story of when he was a village boy.
An artisan once made up his mind to become a judge and it happened.
An applicant dreamt of having his own company, and it came to pass.
What you want to be, you can be.
What you choose to be, you can become.
You only need to make up your mind, seek necessary help and work at it.
