ITS NOT YET OVER!

Some of your classmates have gone out of the country, some are now graduates, some have married, some have given birth…some are dead (don’t forget that too) and some haven’t even gained admission into the tertiary institution or found employment.

But you know that feeling when you meet your classmate, and it seems like he/she has reached his/her dreams and you’re not yet close to yours. Yea, it somehow feels like jealousy.

It’s a normal feeling. 

But, you must not regret your life. We all are different and our paths to greatness is not same in distance. 

Some might reach before you, some might reach after you but whatever level you are presently, please keep trying to break limitations and move further. Celebrate the success of others, its an application for yours. Your friend buys a car now, be happy with him/her. Remember when you get yours, theirs would be the latest again.

Life is not by competition, if at all it were, we’d all be born into one type of family, one religion and same everything. 

The passion in you, never quench. The desire in you, keep it burning. What you pass through write it down because one day the world would be ready to read it. 

There’s no height you cannot attain. Just believe. Define your goals. Recognize distractions. Spend time teaching yourself, because the things that mainly take people to the top, is the things they devoted time to develop. Don’t be intimidated by your fellow’s success. The sky is too wide that the birds can fly without touching themselves.

We will all meet you on top.

  1. I try to avoid jealousy whenever possible because it just isn’t productive. If someone has something that I want, I make it happen in my life. Just yesterday I was tired of seeing people walking around with Chinese food from the restaurant on campus so I cooked some for myself! I’d like to think I turned something negative into something positive.

      1. No but, honestly, I just don’t think jealousy is worth the negativity it brings. There’s nothing productive or healthy sitting around coveting what everyone else has. And if you can’t get it for yourself, you have to learn to be happy with what you have. Otherwise, you’ll never be at peace.

      2. I have had such friends… all the time talking about that one wants what I have… that one got this… and just like I said, life ain’t a competition you know…nobody is meant to have the same path as the other, even though you are twins…. so this jealously thing, some people can’t control it….
