During this year’s World Economic Forum,the originator/founder of the
summit told the whole world that global acceptance is moving drastically
from certificates to talents. And when I was about smiling and thanking
God that at least I got some talent to take care of me,another master
spoke up. This time,it was John Maxwell reminding me that talent is not
enough. And I will dare to add also that even the certificates isn’t
enough. We need a perfect synergy between talents and certificates. Our
present day education system is structured in such a way that we are
trained to

believe that only those with certificates get ahead while
leaving the real people who can do the job. LIES!!!
When you look at the successes of many inventors,business moguls and
their likes who really made a mark,you will quickly conclude that all
these degrees/certificates is just a packaging that is required to take
you to where you want to go or be in life. Get the certificates;but more
to that,develop your talents. Steve Jobs loved computers as a young
boy,he went to College(University) to study them but quickly released he
was wasting his time…really? No! He didn’t just drop out of school
like many of us publicize today and you can read up his book. He stayed
around school for more six or seven months to garner the “certificate”
knowledge he needed before dropping out eventually. His talents made him
successful,his passion and love became his profession. And no
generation will ever forget the man who gave us all the “i”s.(Especially
our Nigerian ladies who use i pads as cameras and DVD players ALONE)

Connections? That’s perfectly good. Knowing the right people won’t hurt
but you need to make yourself relevant to your employer so much so that
even when your “oga at the top” has left,you can still maintain your
position. Your certificates may try,but when your talents and grace
mixes,you already know where you’re heading to…’DA’ Top.
So today,I invite my fellow youths to take a decision. Will you make
your profession your passion and instill your talents into it to
blossom? Or would you wait around till the wind blows you to your dream
life? I don’t know. Till we get to the Promised Land,I will be waiting
for when you’ll pass me glass of water and thank God for the gift of
grace for the race.
