The story of a friend’s brother
I have a friend whose brother is very brained in terms of academics they have their parents sponsoring them and this brother of his have been doing so well in his academics so suddenly they lost their parent they both died
And there is no hope for them but with the look of things his brother decided to take responsibility of his life and he has to go do rough works in order for him to send himself to school thou the journey is not a smooth one so far
But after a long-suffering and hustling, he graduated from the University with a first class result now he became a hot cake for industrial companies because they want him to work with them
What I learned from his story is that imagine he’s a kind person that believes his responsibility of succeeding in life lies with his parents, then after their death, he would believe that is the end of everything for him in life
I want you to learn from this little story I gave as an illustration just to make you understand what it really means to take responsibility for your life
Not until you stop believing that there is someone somewhere hindering you form Succeeding you can’t make it in life, not until you stop believing your success lies with your parents or guardian making it in life might not be easy
Not until you believe you are the one making all that is happening to you in life happen you won’t take a step to explore because life wished you whatever you wish yourself and it brings upon you whatever you bring upon yourself
Making it in life is easy if you take responsibility for your life and believe you’re responsible for the actions of life that is when you can do exploit and make better things out of yourself
Let’s end this with a concluding paragraph
Every great man in our society today took responsibility for themselves and they make better things out of themselves, you also should learn from them and take responsibility for your life in order for you to tell good stories in the future.
