Hello nairalanders

Am 19 years of age, few months to go before I leave teen age behind.

That brings me to ask for your opinions to follow or path to follow to guarantee you being successful in life. No one wants to be unfortunately in life so its better planning ahead at least to give you hope towards the future.

Please all contribution are accepted thank you.

If you are about to get into the university please put in for computer science. While in the university, be the best programmer you can possibly be. Take your core courses like data structures and algorithms and systems design very seriously as they are the Hulk of programming interviews. You would be spoilt for jobs when you graduate. Don't go for any engineering course. Medicine is good if you can leave Nigeria sha.

At 20, I was in NYSC.

I have known everything I know now since 20, no regret no mistake. I'm just growing in those knowledge now.

What can I tell you to do? Nothing, life is unpredictable many times, just make sure you scrutinize before taking decisions

First thing first edit what you wrote up there
Then
Always keep improving yourself academically and skill wise never stop.Do not ever consider yourself too young for anything serious.
Keep good association and have genuine people who can reset your brain whenever you go astray.
I was basically advising myself and that's the best one can give.Goodluck

Lol let me drop a secret for you.

Cos I've been in your shoes and I had to study and find the real spine of your question.


1. Find something you can buy at a cheaper price and sell at a higher or slightly higher price. I can't explain more but there is either a time difference between the time of purchase and sale or the location.
Sort this out by yourself. So basically you need money to make money.

2. You must be smart and constantly evolving with the factors around you.

In making money, you must not stick to let's say shoe sales, you can always jump to food or gadgets. The only thing you need is for the stars to align and only smart people will notice this.

You can also sell your skill but wise people will hire others to do that and eat the lion share. Note that selling your skill alone is a slow journey in most cases.

Listen to advice but strategize and find your place. Nobody will give you nothing. I've read so many books and found out that luck is something you need. Get it by all means.

What is luck?
When the stars align for you at a time you are prepared. So stay prepared. If possible save capital from today for a business you have no idea about. One day the idea will come and you will be lucky.

So technically luck only exists when you are prepared.

Welcome to that age bracket that's full of distraction and peer pressure.

You need to

1. Believe in yourself

2. Be focus and hardworking

3 Be discipline

4. Have few friends of like minds

Go online search for engineering jobs any field of engineering then go and search for programming jobs and come back and let me know which is one is more. For every one engineering job, there are 100 programming jobs. Some fields of engineering have like no jobs at all. Fields like petroleum engineering but they are seen as hot cake in Nigeria.
