\”Train and empower your mind right. See yourself as the only architect of your dream after God. Be law abiding. Improve yourself academically and aspire to achieve great things. Work hard. Acquire practical skills that would help you in life. It would also help to prepare and package you as a potential leader for the nation.
To the older generation I say, see yourself as a catalyst positioned by posterity to help people achieve their dreams. Assist the youths to achieve success. We should all see ourselves as one part of the whole universe. Everything we do, say or has done has effect on the whole universe. when this becomes our mindset, we will find out that It is easier to help change the world and also convince others to do the same.
In conclusion, no matter how well meaning the society or Government policies are, you can not achieve much for yourself unless your mind stays sound and focused. you must be objective, constructive, faithful, diligent, loyal, honest and have confidence in yourself.
You must be willing to sacrifice a little bit to reap bountiful thereafter. That is the secret. it worked for me and it can work for you. You must understand that there is no other smoother way for you to reach the top and achieve success in life than the above.
I believe in the youths. I believe in myself that is why I am here today\” – Ugoeze Shirley Ngozi OKWUDIMMA
