It’s Saturday. You wake up and it’s 11am… You
are heading to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee.
You have only one and a half days to rest before
returning to school on Monday. But you are
happy because it’s finally Saturday. You have
one and a half day of relaxation before another
Tiring and exhausting week so you take
your coffee and sit on your matress.
You turn on the laptop and watch some movies,
then you order bread with beans(just like me,lol)from the
local fast food and start scrolling your Facebook
timeline as you eat and watch movie.
The afternoon you go to a colleagues house to
watch football and chat about the girls in your faculty.You come
back home and go to sleep.
This scenario is repeated on Sunday with a
minor change. Then it’s Monday again… aww, you
have to wake up at 5am, go to a place that you
hate and spend half of your day there.
But What’s Your Purpose?
If you felt that the above story relates to you
then you lack purpose in your life. You hate
what you do but you continue the same way of
living even if it’s destroying your soul day after
So why do you keep doing it?
• Because of obligation.
You have a family to feed and no other way to
make ends meet. You need to work at a
disgusting job that makes you sick of yourself.
• Because you are afraid to follow your own
You can’t stand the criticism of taking your own
path in life. So you force yourself to take a
predetermined road that others set up for you.
You follow the path that society tells you that
you have to follow if you want to be respectable
You see other people acting the same way,
following the same path and you assume that
it’s acceptable as long as other people do it as.
They might now something right? However you
still can’t understand why you wake up feeling
sick of yourself.
• Maybe because you don’t even know what
How would it be possible to know what path is
right for you before you even passed your
twenties? Even if you feel that you know what
you want you fall into the second trap and give
it up because of fear.
Then you don’t have a fucking clue about what
you should do. So what’s the best option?
The option which guarantees the most
money. You sell your soul to the devil in
exchange for a huge paycheck. No, money is not
evil but you arbitrarily assume that more money
will make you look more “cool”.
Unfortunately, you end up being more miserable.
THE 10 MILLON NAIRA QUESTION YOU SHOULD KNOW !!
Before I tell you the 10 million naira question
you have to understand why it’s important to
have a mission in your life.
Without a mission, you are a nobody. You have
no reason to improve yourself
because you simply exist . You just walk your life
like a robot which doesn’t take its own
decisions. A robot programmed to act in a
If you are breathing it doesn’t mean that you
are really alive. You have to discover your
purpose if you want to give your life a
Ask yourself: Is that really what I want in my
No, it’s not that question. The answer in the
question above could be a disgusting lie to
But let me ask you something else.
Forget your financial insecurities. Let’s assume
that you have 10 million naira in the bank.
What would you do then?
Check out some possible options:
• You would spend the next year in a beach in banana island.
• You would buy a new house, car and fulfill your
• You would do nothing for a year except
sleeping, spending and partying.
• All the above.
But what would come after that? What would
you do after an extended period of rest,
partying, shopping and traveling?
You might think that you could never get bored
if you had all these riches. That’s a lie. You
would get bored, 100%.
Why do you think so many rich people are
miserable? Most of these rich miserable people
are the ones who have inherited their huge
They don’t have a purpose, just paper to spend.
When you don’t have a purpose you feel empty.
Sure, it might be fan for a while but after 1-2
years (or less) you would get sick of your own
life. You would feel the same misery with an
average man working on an average job even if
you have all these riches.
The fact is that almost everything like going to
school, college or working is done because we
want to make money.
As a result, we get compromised with doing
things we don’t love. Things that make us sick,
like working on a soul-crushing job or trying to
get a degree in a field that we aren’t even
But you do it because you have to survive. You
give up on your dreams because you have to
survive and make ends meet.
But what would you do if you didn’t care about
money at all? What would you do if you had 10
millions in the bank?
Beyond spending, sleeping and partying you would
have to find something that could fulfill you. You
would find your passion and you could have all
the money you need to support you to fully
commit to your dream.
You would be FREE to live your life and follow
What would you do if you had 10 million in the
bank? If you never had to care about money
Would you do X? Then X is what you HAVE to do
in your life if you want to be truly happy.
X is your life’s purpose!
Only when you remove the money insecurity,
you can truly listen to your heart. You can
discover your mission, what really matters for
If you are not sure about the path you are
following in your life then ask yourself: “would I
follow the same path if I had 10 millions in the
If the answer is YES then keep doing what you
are doing. Otherwise stop it right now or you
will regret it in the future. Repressed emotions
will be too much for you to handle, they will beat
you to the ground.
Stop what you are doing right now, no matter
the consequences, and start following X.
Because X is your purpose, X is your mission.
Without X you will never be completely fulfilled.
You will never be free, you will be just another
cog in the system’s wheel, a robot programmed
to wake up the same time every day doing
nothing more than simply existing.
This article might seem harsh and nailing but, once in a while; we should be sincere to one another…
MANY OF US ARE VICTIMS!!
