CHAPTER 1



KNOWLEDGE TO FULFIL MY DREAM



Japanese proverb – Life without a goal is like entering a jewel mine and coming out with empty hands.



According to oxford advanced learner’s dictionary [New 8th Edition]. To dream is to imagine and think about something that you will like to happen. It can also be a wish to have or be something, especially one that seems difficult to achieve.



As we grow in life, we desire to be great from childhood. The issue is this; everybody wants to be great but nobody talks about the hurdles to cross in order to achieve success in life. We never talk about our conceptions, we never talk about the steps to take, the risk to undertake and we never think of the challenges we are bound to meet on our way to become great. If these things are not put into consideration, you can never achieve greatness because you will always think that life is just a straight road to success. If you have such mentality you will be hit by the holocaust of life, not only which, challenges will also hinder you from getting to your desired destination which is fulfilling your dreams.



But nevertheless, everybody is destined to be great in life; the only time where you will not be able to get to the zenith of your career is when you refused to be a success candidate yourself and therefore choosing failure as your companion; which I know nobody will love to travel on such path. I know there is a question going through your mind, “Why must I choose to be a failure rather than become a success”? The answer to this question is; you may not be aware when you are going through the wrong direction, most times it's because of the pleasurable benefits which are not really beneficial to you positively.



Often, we find students who tend to think they know more than everybody around them including their teachers in school, “I think this is a negative perception”. There is no way you can know more than your teacher, the moment you begin to think like that, you are heading towards a wrong destination far away from getting to your desired dreams unknowingly. You can't possess this kind of mentality and expect to be great in life. If you desire to achieve all you have dreamt of being in life, then you have to change your mentality concerning having more knowledge than your instructors and be ready to learn, else you will plateau.



Try to learn even if it’s something you know, having added knowledge is to your advantage, it takes you a step above your peers and gives you an edge over them as well. I always tell people that what is more blessed to receive than to give is ADVICE. Advice in life is capable of making you outstanding, it will also make you to be courageous and give you the opportunities of learning from other peoples mistakes.
