Growth and Comfort Cannot Co-Exist.
You can either step forward into growth, or backwards into security. You just have to choose one
Growth means learning. It means working, doing, creating, resisting, failing.
Comfort means safety. It means stability, protection, pleasure, and feeling good.
Growth cannot happen as long as you choose comfort over learning. Growth and evolution are incubated in pain and discomfort.
Most people choose comfort over pain, and so remain in average, mediocre lives.
If you want to succeed and experience true, lasting success, you need to know that all the necessary growth and evolution you must experience cannot happen while you’re comfortable.
There is so much you need to know and need to learn. The path to success is paved with obstacles that can only be overcome by reading books, gaining mentors, failing and trying again, and learning from your mistakes.
These cannot happen if you continue to mindless numb yourself through TV and drugs, sleep in longer than you should, or cling to what is “easy” instead of what is “challenging.”
Please note this —— Growth and comfort cannot co-exist.
If you want to become a new, better, healthier, richer, stronger, smarter person, it cannot be achieved while you choose comfort over growth.😊

My sincere advice to recent graduates and undergraduates

It’s no news that thousands of young Nigerians are unemployed.
After the grandeur of the graduation ceremonies, the bachelors and masters degrees, and then NYSC have not translated as expected, to employment for scores of young people.

The worst thing you can do is insist you already know everything.

There was a particular restaurant that was struggling but failing gradually, I found out that it was led by a stubborn and arrogant chef who refused to change his menu or learn new tricks.

The owner decided to bring in another chef, try him/her and follow up on the outcome, that was how Ramsey came in and began cooking marvelous new dishes for the restaurant. He prepared a particular bitter-leaf soup for the owners, which they loved.
However, the chef refused to try the dish. “I already know what sea bass tastes like,” he argued dismissively. “I’ve been cooking for 20 years.” Lol

#priorities let’s talk!

If by now you are not sure of what your top priorities are, you might need to sit down and list everything important to you today!

At the same time...
It takes having a clear list of priorities to effectively manage your time and know what counts while advancing in the direction of your goals. You might eventually stress yourself out if you continually take on too many tasks.
There is different between being busy and being productive. Your goal is a target you want to meet in the future, Priorities are those things you need to establish and focus on to meet that target. Try to always set your priorities right

20s. For some, it’s the best time of their life (or at least that’s what they’ll remember when they look back in their 40s). For others, it can be a decade of heartache and hard times. No matter the experience, your 20s are always a time of adventure and change, don’t shake!
Friends are supposed to make you feel good about yourself. If the people you’re hanging out with don’t, they aren’t your friends. Find people who make you a better person and spend time with them.

There are so many perks to being in your 20s, especially in the early 20s when most of us are still in the university, trying to get our relationships right, trying to get a bearing for our financial life and stability, and many more. It’s really very challenging.
The question is—Are you worrying about the right things? Are you where you should be now?

The best way to prepare for these questions and answer them to the best of your abilities is to make sure you spend time on what really matters and what may help you in the future.
