Be Proud Of Your Legitimate Hustle - An Advice To Young Nigerians by yinkuscious(m): 2:12pm On Jan 03, 2019
DON'T BE ASHAMED OF YOUR LEGITIMATE HUSTLE - There is dignity in labour

One of the reasons why our society keep on experiencing the heart breaking stories of internet fraud, rituals and all sorts of unbelievable quest for getting rich scheme is our societal response and reactions to young people who desired to start small.

Few days ago, my sister reminded me of the saying "there is dignity in labor". That is, whatever you're doing, that is bringing food to your table, that is giving you joy and is not at the detriment of others, you should be proud of it.

But, reverse is the case these days. The process no longer matter, only the result, regardless of how you get the result.

Attentions are been given to those who are showing off and not those who are showing up to promote their trades.

Social media got it all blasted - In recent time, I noticed that if you post a picture of you in an exotic restaurant (even though you didn't buy anything) your social media connections will bless you with lots of reactions and comments, but if you post things about your business or services, you'll be given little attention, less reaction, no comment.

What is this data saying about our society? People don't care or give little attention to things that add value to your life, they don't want to support or show interest in your process.

Then people (victim of the societal judgment) decided to go into the get rich quick at all means, or die trying schemes.

And we all can see what this has caused us as a society.

Dear your people, be proud of your trade. Even if family and friends don't support you. Even if they pay no attention to you, God is a rewarded of hard work.
There are people who are taking note of your consistency, your ability and your sagacity.

It won't only give you peace of mind, it will allow you a beautiful legacy and a good place in history.

Don't fall for it, embrace your small beginning - those who look down on you didn't create you, they won't pay your bills for you.

To your shameless execution.

I understand that there's dignity in Labour buh this country doesn't recognize that. Our problem is leadership, structure too. Imagine you working in an European country as you do here, you're making it.

Nigeria has been thrown into a furnace. It's burning daily.

OP, may the good Lord bless you. Of course, just like ur well written and honest write up, it won't get much traffic and attention. undecided

This says a lot about the mindset of an average Nigerian. The whole nation itself is rotten from the top to the bottom. angry

You'll see fools on here singing praises and adulations to corrupt folks and illegitimate wealth. angry It's the typical 9ja way.

Again, God bless you!

Labour is a gift from God, no matter the level. Don’t let anyone talk you down as long as it is legitimate. Keep focus. The devil always sends distractions and some come as friends, others as mockers. Pray for wisdom to discern.

Fun facts: 90% of you here were raised directly or indirectly by Yahoo money. You think that your rich uncle got all his wealth from selling clothes, or you think that your elder brother in diaspora is working in oil and gas?
