This is my special morning greetings to you in Kulere language of Bokkos local government area of Plateau State, Nigeria. It is another good time to share with you. Hope you are earnestly looking forward to the end of the year- the most expensive and fun – filled time of the year?
Today, I will tell you the story of my friend who had an entrepreneurial drive; he went to his uncle to discuss his intentions. His uncle, gave him ten reasons why he should hold on to his career as his boss would reward his loyalty down the line. What should he do? However, as a convinced young man, he moved on with faith. Let’s think together on Paralysis versus Ellipsis.
Paralysis is the state of being extremely analysing till the vision of the person is killed. There are many people who over-analysis situations using copious examples till they discourage others. Unfortunately, every organisation grew out of someone’s vision of daring the odds.
Ellipsis, in this sense, is the state of starting out and trudging along till everything fall into the right position. In this age of information, there are a lot of things that can be checked on Google while some would be learnt from experience. Many people would tell you that they need millions of naira to start up a business while some people started up the same business with the idea and a few thousands.
Like the story of Moses in the scriptures, what is in your hands at this material time? It could be all you need as you move towards you and others whose destiny depends on yours to proceed to Promised Land.
Being courageous and determined, is the first step in the direction of success.
