SO many times we let the environment, the circumstances and our problems get the best of us.
For instance, if a student does not pass his or her examination, he or she thinks that is the end of his or her life.
Late Dr Myles Munroe stated in one of his books that the richest place on earth is the cemetery.
This is because in it lies all the hidden talents, potentials, the skills, the knowledge unused and even the ideas that never took physical form.
What is your contribution to this country?
If we blame failure as the blockage to our contributions, then let’s see a few examples.
Thomas Edison never had a chance of formal education beyond three months.
Yet he contributed light bulbs that he invented and we use to this day.
Wilbur and Orville Wright never had the chance to pass their high schools, but today we are enjoying our flights on planes because they contributed by inventing the first plane. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard University.
He never passed most of his school subjects, yet, today we are using personal computers in offices and at homes because that is his contribution.
Failure should not the reason why we think we have nothing to contribute.
You all have potential talents, skills, ideas and even gifts inside you.
Potential is what you can do but have not yet done.
Potential is what you can be but have not yet become.
