The peak moment

24 June 2014, 12:20 Jibunor George Chuks

Hard times as it seems is not to break or destroy human life, but this has been found in most cases as a driving force towards achieving one's goals and objectives in life. Challenges of life is a tough one though but still, never meant to kill anyone as we all know. Only what kills are those people heading one post or the other that have made up their minds to frustrate the life's of others. Both in the families and other places.

Where you are is never by your power but by the grace of God. Bright Okocha known as BasketMouth, as we all know. Tells a story about how he started; hardship brought out the talent in him, he capitalised on the disadvantage of the hard times they were facing and turned it into advantage for himself. Now, his friends, families can openly boast of him and can equally benefit from who he had turned into.

Julius Agu, equally shares in the same experience. Your moment of hardship is never a time for sober or giving up in life, but a time for re-collective thinking and reasoning, on how to soar higher. People may downcast you when you are nobody but when you eventually becomes somebody; if they cannot have the opportunity of living lavish with you at that moment, then and then will they start complaining and regretting for having left you.

The greatest and most successful people today are never the ones that were born with silver spoon but those who don't even know what or how silver spoon look's like. Your peak is when you have nothing and is when you start from scratch to the top. Youths should never give up on the right thing of life they believed in, not-minding the conditions and the backgrounds. Just believe, many have crossed-over and your case will never be a problem.
