I am always happy when I see new buildings and infrastructural
developments embarked upon by individuals. It gives me joy and hope that
inspite of the harsh economic condition in this country,people are
progressing and becoming successful everyday. I love progressive people
because I know I will get there for sure. What inspires me more is their
mindset. They don’t see problems rather they see challenges. They see
opportunities to improve and become better. They capitalise on what
others see as failure to rise above normal human expectations. If you’re
progressive,I respect you.
We need more people who will give us hope that we can still do the right
thing and succeed in this nation. Pessimists are really eating deep
into our polity these days and it is not healthy for our younger
generation. Why? Because when a child grows up with the notion that
things are bad and may never get better,the person does little or
nothing to improve his life. That is why you will hear things like,”my
father never succeeded doing that,and he warned me not to try it because
I will fail”. Another will be brainwashed that all rich men soiled
their hand and he will end up getting more confused than his problems.
What we need are progressive individuals who will always inspire us and
inform us on how to turn our problems into opportunities. I have had the
luck of meeting several progressive people and I owe a lot of what I
have become today to them. I’m grateful.

I love progressive people because you will feel the aura of
perseverance,consistency and hardwork when you’re with them. When faced
with challenges,they never speak ill of their situation. They simply
brainstorm and find ways out of the challenge because they understand
what it means for a situation not to be permanent. They understand that
you have to pray to God and hand over everything into his hands. But
they also comprehend the fact that God will not do for us men what he
has ordinarily given us power to do for ourselves. That is wisdom and
the progressive spirit in action. They may not have enough,but they will
always share the little they have and will not fail to motivate you to
work hard because a glorious future is ahead. They’re already into the
Promised Land,and I’m hoping that one day,I will get there and share my
glass of water with them as we thank God for the gift of grace for the
race.
