Utilize your Youth
How much have you utilized your youth? Believe me, whether you like it or not, your youthful days are your days of sowing. What you do in your youth matters as it will constitute about 80% of what will prepare & propel you further for the future.
As a student, the University is not just somewhere you come to learn, but also to gain influence. A lot of us just isolate ourselves here in school forgetting the fact that yes to learn is good, but the connection to others is needed for achievements.
Now a little advice: put in more effort, try everything triable & discover your placement. *Jeff Bezos CEO Of Amazon* said something and I quote “One of the huge mistakes people make is that they try to force an interest on themselves. You don’t choose your passion, your passion chooses you” and I believe this is in correlation with what I said earlier ” … discover your placement”.
Don’t just sit about like most of us do these days and keep dreaming, yes dreaming is perfectly awesome but it takes the input to actualize it.
Do something, if there’s something you love doing, put in more work into it, just like a Pastor-friend of mine Asuquo Victor would say ” Don’t despise the days of little beginnings “, it might seem nothing is coming out but keep on! Don’t stop, there’s light ahead.
Let me leave you with this ” What you do in the days of your youth is essential for your establishment in your personal race “.
I hope this helps someone.
