Having had the opportunity of meeting different
characters and personalities along my life journey,I believe there are some
people we need to avoid if we're ever planning on succeeding in this life. If
you have someone in your life who is always pointing fingers at others and
yelling on them that they're wasting their life and time,run away from the
person. He is always right and does no wrong. In his ignorance,he has crowned
himself king of his own world and if you dare get involved with him,he'll
poison your reasoning. And mind you,many people on this cadre are mostly bitter
with their own life.
More to the list of those to avoid is the person who
always complains of not having money. Yes! We all know the country is hard,you
don't always need to make it a form of greeting for us. These brand of
personality is dangerous to your progress in life. This is because they fail to
understand that there will never be a time when one will have enough money.
They're so negative about life that they'll complain at any given opportunity.
They'll blame everyone else for their failure but they'll never make effort to
They wallow in self pity and will readily manipulate you to their
side. I know them very much and they often use terms like this,"I know
I've failed(even though they made no effort to succeed),but God knows I don't
deserve this treatment...I can't even help myself". That's manipulation,if
you don't wake up to face your life challenges,even God will forsake you and I
will join in the parade.
The grand master is the one who feels everybody on this
earth owes him some amount of respect for being alive;run away from him. He
presents himself as the face of goodwill and perfection but blackmailing and
manipulating everyone to see him as the saviour. If you detest or challenge
him,he will rally everyone against you and you will pay dearly. They come in
different shapes,sizes and positions in life,be weary of them.
Life is short and we have a lot to accomplish before
going to meet our creator. I have made up my mind that I will never pity nor
respect a man, who has failed to live up to his calling in life by virtue of
his own stupidity and nonchalant attitude towards life. The watch word should
be reasoning and not emotions. If you deserve it,you will earn it. Till we get
to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of
water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
