THIS IS HOW I RATE MY SUCCESS: I DON’T WANT TO LIVE LONG BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
“If I am successful that means I should serve you and help you to come up to where I am” – Sunday Adelaja.
May I never get to the climax that will make me despise the people around me. No matter where I’m now or where I would be years to come, may I continue to be conscious of the fact that some people’s contributions in one way or the other gave me a leap. Some by their words, books, prayers, encouragement, criticisms and love.
I’m conscious of the contributions of my parent, siblings, mentors, friends of like passions and foes. How can I forget the prayers of my mum, the beautiful smiles of my younger sister, fellowships with men of like passion and critisms that takes me back to my table to accelerate my motion?
I don’t want to feel successful by the millions in my account, the property I would acquire, the nations I have visited, times I appear on the T.V, numbers of people that knows my name, what Wikipedia has to say about me or posters of me across the globe. All these can be achieved so cheap even by irresponsible acts.
I want to rate my success by:
How I have been able to effectively harness all the potentials God has embedded in me with proven results.
How I have made life convenient for the earth’s populace even when I go through the rigours on behave of mankind.
How much of me that humanity have benefitted from.
How I have made investments in myself to make virtues and values readily available for others to draw from.
How I have helped others to avoid the pains, neglects and failures I went through.
How my prowess and expertise has been solutions to global ills.
How I have helped others, young and old to be where I am and even better than me faster than I could have done.
How people have smiled in situations where I once cried and almost gave up.
I’m responsible to this “HOWS” and working tirelessly daily to see it accomplished.
I DON’T WANT TO LIVE LONG
Please if you see me soon on your T.V screen spearheading protests against ungodliness and decadences in nations, don’t join others to say I have lost my prayer life neither did I backside.
If you hear on the your radio that I have been arrested for taking actions for global transformation in any quota, please don’t say God is punishing me for my sin. If it would cost me that being a convict, it’s worth it.
If you read on the dailies that I was shot dead for refusing to sign documents that would cause my children and the coming generation to exalt immorality as a norm; don’t cry, rejoice because I happy to stand for such legacy in expense of my life.
I have made up my mind to fight impunity, ungodliness and decadence with my last blood. I have been preparing myself, reading, praying, fasting, writing, protesting, taking actions and so on till Revival, Spiritual Re-awakening and Global Revolution becomes a reality and the way of life of the people around me.
I don’t care how many people are with me neither do I give the thoughts of others against me a concern. What has eaten me up has done so much to me that I have no room to accommodate the neglects and beefs of others.
