Happy new year everyone. I want to welcome you great and wonderful people to 2021 with a story. Are you ready?
In a particular village, there lived three friends. Getting water in this village especially for domestic use is not easy as the availability of water in the only source that supplies it is scarce and even when there is water, these three friends will meet a long queue and when it gets to their turn, it is either the water is finished or it isn’t flowing as it ought to. This problem in the village is actually as a result of bad leadership. This people were oppressed by their leaders.
One day, the three friends needed to get water, they went with their buckets but on getting there, they realized there was no water, devastated and frustrated, they went home. One of the friends had an idea, she told her friends about a particular place that had water but was a bit far. The two friends disagreed and decided to wait till evening perhaps there would be water by then but the other friend made up her mind to go to the far place to get water as she couldn’t take any chances. Her friends made fun of her and told her she was going to come back empty handed. The two friends went out to have fun while the other friend took some jerry cans in a wheelbarrow and went the distance to get water and she got it, enough to last her for a week. On returning home, she kept the jerry cans and went out and on getting back, she saw her friends taking water from one of it. She was so furious like seriously, her friends were reaping where they did not sow. She went over to confront them but what was the reply her friends gave her? – Please, we only want little, we need it, just little please.
What am I trying to bring out of this story?
There may be problems in your country, town, community or even village and you may have the solution to these problems but people have told you it’s not possible, it can’t be done, you will sacrifice a lot and end up empty handed. I want you to follow your heart and not people. Don’t care about what other people say, their opinions do not matter, take that leap of faith and when you become successful, the people that discouraged you will run and look up to you for help and assistance. Never give up.
Thanks for reading and happy new year once again and God bless you.
