AVOID NEGATIVE CONFESSIONS AND ACTIONS
If you are always complaining about your business, I tell you, you will never do well there. If you are complaining about Nigeria when you are a Nigerian, Nigeria will not bless you. Talk good about Nigeria because you have no other country you come from but Nigeria.
If Nigeria is bad, it is because you are bad. This is because it is human beings that make up what you call “Nigeria.” Think of how you can better your lot. Let me think of how I can better my lot. Let Brother Tony think of how he can better his lot, then Nigeria will become a better Nigeria.
It is very, very bad for one to go about complaining and murmuring; grumbling, grudging, biting your fingers—your eyes all red. It is an advertisement of foolishness. In my own field, I am aiming to become a star there. In my village, I want to be a star. In my compound, I want to set a record that never existed so that it will be credited to me. You see, once you start complaining, you hinder yourself from moving forward. Your achievement is finished. Before you know it, you begin to blame people for your woes. On the road to success, nobody should be blamed for any failure except you. On the way to success, no other person should be blamed for my mishap except myself, for every miscalculation must bounce back to me. I repeat: every miscalculation must bounce back to me.
A lesson to learn: “I failed my arithmetic; I failed my prediction; I miscalculated.” What is expected of me? Re-work; correction. When a child fails in a subject in the school, it does not mean the end of the child’s career provided the determination is there to do correction
