About to get there
My focus is on the category of youths that have the desire to create their success story in their prime through hardwork, honest, legal, innovative and creative means notwithstanding the socio economic or political backward societies they come from.
We will be going on a series together, it is important to note that I am just starting, I do not have any extraordinary citation to my name as i have hardly achieved anything out of the ordinary so it is a group of thriving "not yet there" but "about to be there" youths and we will help and encourage each other to start weaving our aspirations into fabrics of reality.

One of the most important prayers we do pray as humans is to have the wisdom to discern the right and perfect time to act after all even the bible says there is time for everything.
Despite how important this prayer is, it is actually the reason why most people never get to act on their dreams. There are a thousand and one perfect reasons to convince us that the timing is wrong such as; I do not have sufficient funds, I am not old enough to act on such great idea, I have not met the right set of clientele, let the kids grow a little older, let me achieve my dream figure and size first, let me get done with this academic pursuit first, let me get a less stressful job first and the list never ends. They all seem logical and are sincerely rational reasons to probably wait a little longer but I am so sorry to inform you that there is no such thing as a perfect or best time that can be better than right now!
Right now is your best bet for the following reasons;
- Time waits for no man
- There is no guarantee of a better time
- The first attempts to success most times ends in failure so why not make your mistakes already and move on
- There is no better time to be the worse in your game that you will end up being a pro in later than now
- The only time you have a 100% chance at failing is when you make no attempt
- The best ideas, strongest determinations and Wills, readiness to succeed and passion to profit come when we are at our lowest
In summary, stop planning alone, stop looking for the perfect time, Act now! No matter how little, large, messy, incompetent or perfect it will be, now is the time to Act. Make the mistakes already so that in a few years you will start reaping.
