In life, challenges come. Pain, trial, failure, adversity, setbacks are all a part of human life. And they are a good part too…. Sadly 😦 however, we fail see the good in bad situations. We tend to discard both baby and bath water by condemning an ugly looking situation as incapable of producing anything positive.
We forget that a farmland may be barren because it is fertile with gold.
We have to take whatever life gives us, whatever form it takes, because we’ll be making a big mistake letting go of whatever we’re meant to hold on.
We shouldn’t be quick to sell off a goldmine as a wasteland.
We shouldn’t treat adversity with fear, challenge with cowardice, failure with discouragement, or ill fate with resignation
Imagine what would have happened if David had cowered from his Goliath, if Thomas Eddison had resigned to be a failure, if J. Rowlings had taken it as her lot not to be a writer…
Maybe those are too far fetched, what if President Buhari had quit trying? What if the Great Mama MEDILAG (the much loved provost of CMUL) had not risen up to the challenge of failing a course while in Med school.
I’d rather not imagine life without electricity (even if NEPA leaves little to the imagination)… And errr… Harry Potter is such a great franchise…
Agreed, life may not always be a bed of roses, sometimes it may be water leaf… Make the most of it (roses are not edible sef… And ewedu is delicious 😛 )… Champions are made out of challenges, legends emerge from tribulations and the greatest human inventions were made to solve PROBLEMS
So, the next time you feel you’re not up to the task and want to quit, here’re some tips.
Read about David and Goliath (Google it if you don’t have a bible)
Watch Harry Potter
Reminisce on Nigerian politics especially in the last decade
Or just simply look up at a light bulb and remember that the genius who invented it could have given up, but he didn’t!
After all this has passed, I still will remain
After I’ve cried my last, there’ll be beauty from pain
I hope I’m talking to somebody…
