CHANGE is the only permanent thing in life, and change always has to change.
You either live life, or life will leave you.
The law of motion states that, “Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.”
However, at that point of impact, such an object can never define, limit or determine the position it will end up in.
No matter how good a president is, he must vacate after a number of years, failure to do so, usually turns his good deeds sour.
That’s why we should always be like the Boy Scout, “be prepared.”
Don’t assume you would be where you are for the rest of your life.
Life itself has seasons, so you don’t have to wait for the raining season before you buy an umbrella.
The fact of life is that no condition is permanent, for one day, u will have to change or change will change u.
You can’t have 100 friends, and not have one enemy.
You can’t be the highest goal scorer every league season.
You can’t always be the best performer.
And you can’t always be in the good books of everyone forever.
So, should we now wait to be changed? or be the change itself?
The good book says, he who is unafraid to lose his life, will keep it, while he who is afraid to lose his life, will surely lose it.
Usually, you are afraid of losing something when you don’t have an alternative.
For if you had an alternative, you would not want to “ku sibe,” for you will know that “when some go, some will come, so, there will always be some.”
Most people have generator at home, incase NEPA takes the light.
They have fuel stored at home, in case they run out of fuel unexpectedly.
They make copies of their original certificates in case they lose the originals.
Some even have two or three partners, in case the other one(s) refuses to play ball.
However, and unfortunately, most people never have a Plan B, for the eventuality of a job loss.
Waiting till doomsday, before you get ready, is like jumping into the middle of the Ocean in order to start swimming lessons.
Some people will say, you don’t test the depth of a water with both feet.
Others will say, practice makes perfect.
Preparing for Change is about a lot of things.
It’s about increasing your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual abilities.
It’s about increasing your earning power.
It’s about purpose, knowing what you want and going for it.
It’s about action, trying new things and challenges to know your capability.
It’s about having a safety net to catch you when you fall.
It’s about staring at FEAR and knowing, FEAR fears you.
One of the biggest birds in the world, the Ostrich, would rather hide his head in the sand than fight or take flight when danger looms.
The funny thing is that, the bird is one of the fastest land animals, and it also has a very strong kick, yet it always limits its own potential itself.
Unfortunately, some of us will rather play the Ostrich in the face of a “coming eventuality.”
Change will come, whether you like it or not.
For some of those who use to work in Banks, it has come already.
The question is not when will it come, the question is, who is next?
