I keep wondering how some make it in life so easily while others tend to suffer through out a life time. During my course of thinking I found out some work hard, prepare their minds, seek information and keep developing themselves, while these are the ones whom are today successful even though elements of luck sometimes come in there are others who believe life is predestined (which is true because we are all destined to be great but it all depends on how hard you work to make that drop of greatness in you appear) and if they want to be successful it will happen whether or not they strive for greatness.
The truth is the poor will always be in the society we live in, but it all depends on you to chose where you want to belong. Take for instance the employment situation in Nigeria today, even those with 3rd class and Pass from either polytechnics or universities still complain there is no job anywhere.. can you imagine that? In as much as no man’s fate should be tied to his or her score in an exam we can still say pass or a 3rd class is below average. Would you want to employ such a person into your conglomerate if you are in a position to?
This brings to mind when I was talking to my boss lately about going back to the university for my Bachelor in engineering program as I am a holder of Higher National Diploma. He was delighted and asked me to carry with the vision as I was already gainfully employed, but he said something that got me thinking. He said and I quote: “those graduate either from the university or polytechnic that are today unemployed did not pass very well”. That’s the blunt truth, because if you passed very well and you are yet to secure that dream job, you would be smart enough to know you have to start engaging in freelancing job instead of sitting down at home. Are we now getting the reason I said some are lazy that’s why they are poor?
WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU CAN DO AS A GRADUATE YET TO SECURE A JOB?
Dear friends, do not be deceived, we are all not born to entrepreneurs, if not, who would then work for who? There is nothing wrong in being hired to help others achieve their dreams in as much as you are being paid very well. Just like STRIVE MASIYIWA would say as an employee you can be an entrepreneur by doing your job daily in an entrepreneur-like way. This means you should always seek for ways to improve on how you do your job daily.
