Congratulations, Gen Buhari . Your story is that of HOPE .
LET'S THINK :
The story of Buhari is simply that of PERSEVERANCE. He tried presidency but "failed" after two years as a millitary leader. But knowing that he has a passion deeply nailed to his heart and well-mingled with his mind , he gave the presidency another shot seeing that democracy has opened another window of opportunity.
He tried in 2003,2007 and 2011 all of which he failed. But did he give up? Doubly No !!
Fellas, we have no reason to stop trying whatever we feel strongly about. Doing it three(3) times and quitting is not the wisest decision in life. SUCCESS is friends with those who don't give up- -people who persevere.
Life is like an Election: there will be many infractions , tricks , propaganda. Other times there will be rigging, that is, what is yours may be given to some one else. Your boss may shortcircuit you. Your foster parents may pay for the fees of their dumb children or even give "that breakthrough opportunity" to their children or family members even when you are smartest. That darling boy( lady) might have disappointed you badly but u you still don't have to lay down your tools. Keep honing your skills, sharpen your tools ,train your brain and your tongue.
Many times your finances will discourage you. Perhaps you have expended all you have on that project or exams. Nonetheless , never base your dreams on how much money you have personally. There is a God who provides. And if you can solely and easily fund that vision then you cannot call it a BIG DREAM; start dreaming bigger beyond your financial abilities and talents. You can make the impossible happen.
Finally ,after all your hardwork, persistence , diligence and prayer. Success can't help but admire you.
At the end , who would have thought that Jonathan would call Buhari to congratulate him ?
Fella's Talent has never been the magic thing . It has always been hardwork and persistent determination. Keep giving that project a trial , don't stop working on that degree (relationship) . That song, book can be published. Work on building that church,degree or institution and GOODLUCK (SUCCESS) will give you a victory call.
