Good afternoon Readers, it’s been a while I posted here..
I have been abit busy with school and some other side attractions but my mind is always here because this is my little way of contributing to my society.
My article for today was born out of a curious mind, a mind that believed in GOD + HOPE !! And that should be our believes also…. Our HOPe with GOD will take us high even if we have to face enough challenges that would wreck us and bend us…… I believe in No one except GOD !!
Quote for the day :The Solution of Nigeria is not from ASO~ROCK but from YOU and I ! #Ready for a CHaNge ! #rapid #abrupt. CHAnGe !!! #BLASt !
Oops !! That was a powerful side attraction!! Back to my article for today !!
Sit back, scroll through and read in between the Lines, the treasure you seek for might be in between the Lines….
YOU STILL STAND A CHANCE, just try once more !!
My fear : A lot of youths have labelled themselves as “FAILURES” without even trying once more even when GOD already predestined your success story !!
Failure is not a stigma…. Quitting without trying once more is the “SHAME”
Here is a story for you (sent to me by one of my readers), it might not be enough to convince you but atleast it will prove to you that you shouldn’t stop trying, try just one more time!!
Eniola Graduated from Secondary at the age of 16(2007) with the Hope of gaining admission into the higher institution of Learning,even though without a fixed profession but she was sure of gaining admission due to her brilliancy.. Eniola wrote the west African Examination and after the release of the result, brilliant eniola passed all her subjects except for Mathematics … Eniola thought it happened because it was her first trial, Eniola never knew she would be a trial story of failure for years.
Eniola wrote the Waec GCE for that year, the Result was not released…. *a year. Gone* … The Next year Eniola enrolled at a secondary school Far from her home to avoid shame, She read and did her best to pass the Exam, paid for answers during the exam, but all to no avail after the result was released, she failed Mathematics…(2008)
Note: Eniola was not a weak mathematics student, infact her secondary school examination results were evidence to prove.
Her Parents were already bothered , so they decided to enrol her in a coaching class expecting a positive result during the upcoming waec Gce(2008), she tried her best , even her tutors approved her ability to score high in mathematics, But the shocking news was that after the Exam;Eniola’s result was not released. *sad* isn’t it? Her friends were already in their second year at their various institutions , some even mocked her and made it clear to her that going to school might not be her predestined way of survival in life, Eniola faced humiliation at Home,church and in the neighbourhood.. Her Parents forced her to Learn handy works (tailoring) which she learnt for over two Years( late 2008 – early 2011). Eniola was never ready to loose courage and determination of being a university Graduate, after her freedom from the tailoring work; Eniola secured O’level tutorial teachers with her earnings from the first few months in the tailoring industry to take her the core Subjects she needs for Her Waec Gce by September 2011… She also secured a Jamb form which led to uproars amidst her family members
Her mum went against her foolish idea of aiming at admission even when o’level isn’t secured,
Her siblings frustrated her with instances of impossiblilty thinking they were advising her,
Her friends warned her to avoid wasting her money when she knows mathematics is her Limit,
But her Father had believe in her, not because he paid for her enrolment but because he was proud of her Courage !!
Determined Eniola Prepared for the examinations against all Odds, against discouragement from friends and families… She chose Pharmacy for her first and second choice at University of Lagos, wrote the Jamb examinations and had 268 (thank God Mathematics was not required as one of her four courses), She was so Happy, she went for the Post Jamb exam and scored an appreciable mark that earned her an admission into the University to study Pharmacy….. But yet No one believed she would Pass Her O”level courses to proceed for her admission registrations @ UNILAG… September 2011, Eniola Wrote the Waec GCe examination with fear but coined with GOD and Hope… Friends prayed(even though they were against her) but yet Her HOPE never wavered nor diminished …. LATE december, few days before christmas( Dec.25), the Examination result was released ; Eniola could not check the result cuz she had almost Lost courage, not as if she doubted God but she is a weak human who was scared of the future…..
Fortunately Dec. 29, Eniola went to Check her result and behold her Mathematics result was shocking!!! She had B3 in Mathematics, A Young lady who once Had f9, f9, cancelled result,f9 … Had to wait for over two years and yet could have B3 without anyone’s help or assistance….
Presently, Eniola is a 400level pharmacy student of Unilag… She knew she still has the Chance and she tried once more before quitting
Readers, I know most of you might have passed through something more than this and yet you are not yet where you ought or wish to be…. You still stand a chance, try once more before quitting….. Your Hope in GOD and your determinations goes a long way in helping you….
#i Love you for you Courage !!
# stand up tight and defeat your fear !!
