No one will be awarded a gold medal for running on the wrong track even if he comes out first.
No one can get to his destination on the wrong lane irrespective of the the speed he is driving at.
This was exactly what happened to me in year 2013. I had a wedding of someone very close to me to attend at Ogbomoso town in Oyo state on a beautiful Saturday morning. I had the plan of going and returning back that same day.
That would be the first time I would be driving to Ogbomoso by myself and alone. I set sail, got to ibadan in no time, I found my route to Oyo Road. No google map as at that time so I decided to ask for the road from anyone.
The first person I asked for the route gave me one funny description and rounded up by saying "e ma lo bahun" meaning just be going straight like that. Trust me, I was on a high speed and the road was still good at the time.
However, unfortunately for me, my cruise was on another direction. What a waste of time, fuel and energy. It took the effort of another person to assist me in navigating my right route back, so I ended up taking a longer route to my destination.
Long story cut short, I was lucky enough to still meet the final part of the wedding.
This is how many of us are on the high speed of life but driving in the wrong direction. That is why you are still not convinced you are right. That is why you still have that hole in your heart.
That is why many still see you as a success but you see yourself as failure because they are measuring your success on the platter of what you acquire but not on fulfilment. They forget that fulfilment is key. That is why you are still in search of the true meaning of life.
That is why you are still in confusion.
On the contrary, another man on a normal speed on the right lane will definitely get to Ogbomoso (destination) faster than myself on a high speed but on the wrong lane.
Listen to me, we have been taught so much that we need speed to get to our destination but forgetting that that speed can only amount to something if only we are on the right track.
You have driven your life far too enough that you are not sure of the destination you are coming out from. You have options to either continue accelerating on the wrong lane, or decelerate to see how far you have gone to think about what to do,...
Or apply your break to stop by asking for the right direction to your destination or turn back to where you are coming from (give up). The choice is always yours but left for me, what was lost in the wrong direction is not as much as what to gain in coming back to the right track
To begin with the process of finding the right track to your destination, one first thing you need is your MINDSHIFT...
And always remember that when a man finds himself in the wrong direction, speed becomes a disadvantage.

I stumbled on a short animated video clip yesterday on a WhatsApp group titled "I am sorry" and ever since I have been thinking on that short sentence "I am sorry".
After thinking seriously on that simple statement, I think many of us need to say I am sorry for too many things we have done. We need to say I am sorry for countless opportunities we have abandoned. We need to say I am sorry for the responsibility we have failed to carry.
We need to say I am sorry for the relationship we have let go. We need to say I am sorry for the hurt, disappointment and betrayal we have caused others. We again need to say I am sorry for our selfishness, ego and pride.
