So recently, especially as I wrote this on-board one of the fanciful new commercial blue buses in Lagos- those new buses that are known for their cool Air-conditioning and the colorful lights, I sat on-board and thought on different things from work, to career and then politics and Nigeria's transportation system, why we should have more of these on our roads against the old dirty yellow buses… The Ticketer approached from the distance doing a final check...my mind flashed between the thoughts of what to say if I couldn't find my ticket and I was also blaming myself for not learning my lessons enough to have thrown away the ticket, this time, the last thing I remembered about my ticket was ruffling it as I got it...I set down the book I was reading , it was something on Personal Finance: How To Make Your First Million by Albert O. Aina, a turn off I guess for some folks but I have learnt to go for anything on the subjects of business, Wealth and Success...After all , I wasn’t taught a class in any of these in the wonderful 5 years I studied Engineering at the University… nobody was taught much, if at all about money within the four walls of the University while I was there, even recently, the curriculum hasn't changed yet,...
And there in my wallet was the crinkled ticket which showed that I paid my fare and I should be allowed to the destination.
I sat back and then I felt the need to share, to blog this and take this as a lesson in success, goal setting and life's journey.
We are constantly on a journey in life and no matter our destination- success, wealth, fame or true greatness, there is always a ticket that permits our thoroughfare..
It is easy to lose the ticket, to lose, roughen, ruffle it or throw it away especially if it is a long trip and believe me, it usually is a long journey to anything worthwhile , even Nelson Mandela’s book title describes it as a Long Walk To Freedom..
No matter where you are heading, keep your dreams. Your Dream is your ticket anywhere you would rather be, and like your ticket, it validates your reasons to be on-board the bus heading to your great destination and with God's grace, we will arrive safely.
To your outstanding greatness!
