As the days roll by,boys become men and girls become ladies. Changes
occur and we begin to have a sense of responsibility. We begin to feel
insulted or appreciated and inevitably;we begin the long journey to self
discovery and death. I watched a TED talk and I continued to watch it
over and over again because of the impact it had on my life. When you
have plans for your life,you don’t wait till you are a full fledged
adult to begin living your dreams;start now. 30 is not the new 20 simply
tells us not to postpone the responsibility of being responsible for
ourselves till we leave our parents house. Its really hard learning to
take responsibility for ourselves and stand up to life’s challenges in
our present world. The easiest thing for us to do is to hide under the
shadow of being young,inexperienced and future leaders(not of Nigeria
anyway) to mess up our golden opportunity of becoming great. Mandela is
dead and the world is shaking. When he was fighting and investing in
what he believed to be the truth,nobody believed he would be a world
leader today. Even if you asked him as a young lawyer in the early
50s,he won’t believe he will spend 27 years in prison and later be honored with more than 250 awards worldwide. That is the spirit of a
true investment;the spirit of delayed gratification for the glorious
future that we all believe in.

Many spend their 20s doing nothing and when you confront them,they’ll
tell you there is still time. And the truth is that there is actually
time. But the sad reality is that this time will pass when you don not
know. Depending on the type of life you want to live,now is the best
time to invest in that person you want to become in the future. If you
want to be a musician,start now to learn music.
If you want to be a
medical doctor,start now to cultivate the discipline needed for such
discipline. For everything that we want to become in life,now is the
best time to invest.
Have fun,enjoy your youthful days,party away,fail your exams and buy
your grades. But remember,there is a place called posterity. And when
you don’t sacrifice the present and invest in it,you may be surprised
the hard blow it will deal you. As we work together unto greatness and
achieving our dreams,I will be waiting for when we shall get to the
Promised Land,there you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for
the gift of grace for the race.
