Let me not sugar coat it for you because that will make you happy and finally, become a total and irredeemable failure.

Oga, you are currently a failure and a loser. The sooner you realize it, the better for you. Any man who is 27 years old, lives with his mom and have not skill for which someone can pay him enough money to live by himself is a loafer. Add alcohol, marijuana and ashawo to it and you are on your way to becoming a vagabond. My best advice to you is to escape from nigeria to USA, Europe, Australia etc and make something out of yourself. If you don’t fix your life within 6 years, Na only God fit save you from penury
u are just an idiot,where will a broke jobless man get money to travel abroad?
Don't even mention sourcing from family cos if he had them he would have started a lil business a long time ago,u useless motivational speakers who are only good at talking thrash

I didn't read your post, but with the title, no, you haven't failed. As long as you're alive, you're a winner. The only person who is still alive and a failure is Buhari.

Of all the useless posts that I've read today, yours is the most useless. The way some of you type at times, one can't help but wonder if you reason from your anus. angry angry

There's nothing absolutely wrong with someone who hasn't achieved anything at 27. He still lives with his parents. So? He hasn't got a job or a wife? Ehn? So long as he has his education, skill and focus (not deviating from his goal). He will definitely make something out of his life. For your information, at 27 too, despite being a graduate, I was still living with my parents. I was working tirelessly but still earning less than today's minimum wage. Whenever I heard the word 'marriage', my soul will depart my body in fear. Fast forward to this moment, the Lord has been extremely faithful. Man is balling and enjoying life. How did it happen? I never lost sight of my goal and the day an opportunity came knocking, I was at home to receive it. No knowledge or certificate is ever a waste unless the bearer doesn't understand what education entails.

PS- Dear graduates (both fresh & old) please keep your spirit up and never lose sight of your goals. The Lord will answer your prayers.

I read something really inspiring a few days back, I can’t find that picture now, so I will try to quote it to as much accuracy as possible
I’ve seen people falling in love at 18, getting married at 21, having kids at 24, and living the perfect life. I’ve seen people starting their college at 24, and not getting married before 35. I’ve seen perfect relationships turning into beautiful marriages and I’ve seen perfect marriages falling apart. I’ve seen people having paid jobs at 21, and joining college at 23, and I’ve seen people graduating at 25, and not having any job till 31.

The point is it’s not that someone is winning the race or someone is lagging behind. The point is it’s not a race, but life. It goes on, and it won’t go on according to the other person, it will go on according to you. Everyone’s life has different pace, and different phases, just because you’re still struggling, doesn’t mean you’re behind someone. You are working on your own pace.

See, everyone has problems. The people you think look perfect on the outside, are the ones who are fighting bigger issues on the inside. It’s you who has to tackle your problems, and tackle them one by one. If you look at the problems, it’s like an army and you have limited ammunition to kill them all. If you will panic you will throw your ammo on one set of problems, and later regret because you’d still be surrounded by it. So say plan.

Plan and tackle them one by one. One ammo on one problem at a time. No money? Get a job. No job? Study and prepare for interviews. Plan your life, and your schedule and routine, and do things one by one, and I’m sure by this time next year, most of your problems would’ve been gone!

You’re not a failure and no one is, all I see are soldiers fighting for a better future ahead with much enemies disguised as Unemployment, Poverty, Lack of support etc.

Less I forget, always stay connected to positive friends or better still business friends.

Do things that can give little money for the short term not minding the nature. NETWORK, NETWORK NETWORK among your friends and family. Get something that will make you active. Sitting at home will worsen your condition.
