If you are young, please don't buy into Nigeria's gerontocratic culture or the entitlement ethos. Stop waiting for handouts and for people to help you. Chart your career & life and just start EXECUTING. Create opportunities and be aggressive. If not, life will simply pass you by.
"Waiting for things to happen", is why some people wake up one day and their mates are so far ahead of them. Also people don't realise that not taking a decision is already a decision. They think things will just "happen", if they wait long enough. Stuff will align, miraculously.
Also note that everytime you "passively" do something corrupt, you are taking a decision. Your soul is changing; your values goal post is shifting.
One day, life will force you to pick a side: the light or the dark side. You better be ready for the consequences of your decision. If you choose the dark side, it comes with the willingness to steal, kill and destroy. There is no middle ground to achieve success, the dark way.
Achieving success the dark way comes with stuff people don't say outside - loss of family, sleep, peace & respect and Russian roulette with eternity.
Choose to be excellent. Train to be the best. Become bigger than Nigeria. There is a larger world out there that appreciates excellence, goodness and values. You can access it when your reputation precedes you, when people recommend you, when you build a brand on #socialmedia.
