Never Look Down On People Just Because You're Doing Better Than Them... by beacon02(m): 7:00am On Aug 04, 2018
Sometimes you see people who ain't doing fine like you, all you can think of is "they ain't smart like you, they ain't intelligent enough, they are bunch of lazy entities, they are this, they are that"
I've gotten to a stage in life where I'm trying so hard to live above blaming people.
I took my time to study the world properly and I discovered that the major difference between wealthy people and the poor is opportunity and greed.
When I say wealthy, I believe you understand what I mean. If you live in a comfy 3 bedroom apartment with your family, owns a car and can afford to feed your family on that 3-spuare meal. You're only averagely OK not wealthy. That is, you're only big enough to live above poverty.
Wealth comes massively by opportunity and greed. Let me explain.
If you study the life of most billionaires who were once broke, you'll discover that at a point in their life, they had the opportunity to be great and they took the chance. That is settled.
But let's come back home to Nigeria. If you check the source of wealth of 85% of wealthy men here, it is massively traced to greed and discontentment. Most of them cover their faces with legit businesses and companies, pretending as if that is the drive behind their wealth... That is a massive lie. Majority of these people are drug Barrons, money ritualists, harmed robbers, Internet fraudsters, political thieves and so on... Only few rose to stardom on a platter of hardwork and favour.
So when you see someone you're better of, do not look down on them. You might be fortunate to have what they never possess. You may think, but he was physically stronger that me. If only that riches come by the measure of strenght, the abokis would be the richest tribe in the world.
You may think, I'm better than him becuase I'm smarter and more intelligent back in school days. Look, there are still loads of your mates who are miles smarter and more intelligent than you, yet they're not doing well like you. If you think I'm lying, reflect back on the lives of some of your very intelligent school mates and check what they are doing now.
If you're in that big office taking millions as wages, be humble, it is by opportunity.
If you're the owner of that multi-million business, be humble, it is by opportunity.
Never look down on those who ain't digging it like you. Everyone with their own time. They may rise above you tomorrow when their opportunities come.
To brothers and sisters hustling hard to live the life they desire. Never give up, keep pushing in hardwork and prayers. God never forgets you, He never gets tired of answering prayers. Do not aspire to be the next Dangote or Otedola, aspire to be the next YOU. Little is needed in life to be satisfied.
Remember this, WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY.
Good morning...
