Have you ever notice that most of what you see in your night dreams are what you have interacted with in the past and in the present? If you have never been to a place before, the probability that you won’t have a dream about it is 95% because many of the night dreams comes with what you are already familiar with. No matter how instructive and meaningful the dreams are it will come in pictures of what you are familiar with. This is to assist your understanding of the dream if you have a discerning mind.
In the same vein, everything you need to succeed in life is within your reach. They are what you have seen, felt and tasted. Although, many of us are blinded to this simple fact because most time we believe they are in far land and we need to reach out for it. So most times we have created complexity out of it and this is one of the reasons why we have set-back in reaching our goals. It is difficult to achieve anything you have complicated in your heart or anything you believe is out of your reach.
Some years back I used to see successful men or women as people who are out of this world and also people with a special breed. But now my perception has changed and I now see them as people who pay close attention to what is already at their disposal. They are people who don’t start looking for gold in far land but who believe the gold is within and around them. In most cases they persevere on their way to achieving their goal. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not: unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” This is a powerful quote.Anytime time you feel like giving up, take a deep breath, feel the emotion but still persist and persevere. Do not allow that emotion to steal away the success you are about to record if you don’t give up. There is not reward for half done job. Rewards are giving after the completion of a tax. Until you finish that race never give up.Looking within and around always have a way of proferring solution to any of our problems. What you need to succeed is closer to you than you think.
Like I used to tell my students that “what will make you pass any exam is already in your textbooks and notebooks”. You don’t need to look elsewhere, all you need is to focus on what you already have in your textbooks and notebooks and academic success will come. Don’t look elsewhere, always look within
