The fact that your age mate has bought a brand new car doesn't mean you should set your bicycle on fire; the fact that someone eats pizza every night doesn't mean you should discard your supper of cassava and fish; the fact that your mates are cruising in the city doesn't mean your village hustle is in vain.
Who knows tomorrow?
Pepsi sold 7968 gallons of syrup in its first year of operation. Coca-Cola, on the other hand, sold just 25 gallons of syrup in its first year of operation. Despite the huge disparity at inception, both companies are still doing wonderfully great?
If ten (10) people buy from shop A at a time, does it mean shop B should dispose its inventory or sell same inventory as shop A does? Who knows tomorrow? Perhaps, one customer of shop B alone may fetch her a million revenue while shop A might take a decade to make such sales.
Never do harm or say ill of yourself because you do not know what tomorrow holds for you. The fact that your age mate has been successful at age 20 doesn't mean nothing good can come of you at age 40.
Most often, we focus so much on other people's journeys and successes to the extent that we fail to discover our shine. We focus on people ahead of us and forget to jump the hurdle in front of us that could have made us stars.
Some friends of yours went to college or the university, you couldn't; some were employed right after school, you have none; some are getting married, you're so broke to even cater for yourself let alone marry.
But do you have to make these things dictate and decide your life? Have you asked yourself why you are still alive when friends of equal age are dying?
Who knows perhaps tomorrow, you may own jets while those who mocked you drive in their small cars? Who knows you may be the CEO of that conglomerate you never thought you would be opportune to head.
Concentrate on your journey because nobody knows tomorrow. They may be the moon, you may become the star; they may be the sun, you may control the cloud. As far as you live, there's hope. Be patient. Focus on your path, stay positive, keep learning smarter and stay humble. Something greater will be yours soon
