How Do You Become Rich? You sit home and add some weight, then money would come. Idiot! How long would you miserably believe in fortune tellers? “You would be rich in ten years.” Yes you are rich, I can see that. You’re rich in carbohydrates and alcohol. I wish your bank account was as protruding as your stomach. Your generation would have to do no work forever. Everything is easy when you’re busy, nothing is easy when you are lazy. That including money. Now before you gulp down that last bottle, ask yourself this question; If I were to die tomorrow would I be happy with today? Life is hard. It’s even harder when you’re stupid.
Dream High. You really shouldn’t care if the glass is half empty or half full, all you should aim at is to ensure it’s filled. There is the story of a preacher who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation: “I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, its still out there in your pockets.” At the end of the service, he had enough money to build two churches. Why? He had an impossible dream of raising the money that day. Poor people always have horrible taste in dreams. If money could talk, all yours would say is Goodbye. You are free to be whatever you want. Don’t waste that chance! You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. Never be ashamed of your hustle. Nobody will feed you if you go broke!!
Sleep Right. Yes, get some sleep please. You look like a barbiefied masquerade. Depriving your brain cells good rest would make them hate you more than they already do. Imagine struggling in these terrible days with a brain that hates you. That’s like going sky diving with no parachute. You’ll break and die in a horrible way. Good sleep and tasty food, that’s my ideal kind of life. Good ideas seem to flow when you have taken enough rest. Let me warn you now, it’s 2:27 am in the morning and I haven’t slept all day. Anything you read in this post, take it like that.
Have Friends. A friend accepts us as we are, yet helps us to be what we should. A good friend is a connection to life – a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world. A wolf without his pack is completely weak. Are you without your pack? You will never forget a person who came to you with a torch in the dark. No matter how smart you are, if you don’t know how to work with people, your dreams will just be dreams. But also remember that if you don’t have at least one hater, then you are not doing something right. You want to come in my life, the door is open. You want to get out of my life, the door is open. Just one request. Don’t stand at the door, you are blocking the traffic. Come on, ADMIT IT: Life would be so boring without me.
Learn From Experience. Every event in your life, no matter how big or small, plays a significant role in your growth. Learn from every experience. Every day that we live can be a day in which we learn a valuable lesson to take with us for the rest of our existence, if only we are willing to make a full fledged effort to participate in and learn from every moment we experience. Do not let your past experiences harm your future. Your past can not be altered and your future does not deserve the punishment. Every experience brings more clarity to your life. As you learn from them you will see the blessings and then give thanks for each one. A good scare is worth more to a man than good advice. Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions. I’ve had good experience with my mum and that explains why I can dodge a slipper from her even in my sleep.
Think More, Talk Less. Admit it, you talk like a broken wall clock. Now that you have admitted, SHUT UP. Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths? You don’t have to watch what you say if you watch what you think. A seed while growing makes no sound..A tree when falling makes huge noise..Destruction shouts, but creation is always quiet..Be quiet, achieve more. Anybody who thinks talk is cheap should get some legal advice. Don’t give your advice before you are called upon. As a vessel is known by the sound, whether it is cracked or not; so men are proved, by their speeches, whether they are wise or foolish. Remember that what is unbecoming to do is also unbecoming to speak of. Four things never come back; the spoken word, the wasted time, the past life and the neglected opportunity. So think twice, act wise. And if you must talk like a parrot, at least brush your tongue for Gods sake. You can’t leave your ooze everywhere.
Resist Anger. Anger is a feeling that makes your mouth work faster than your mind. Anger is a killing thing. It kills the man who angers, for each rage leaves him less than he had been before. It takes something from him.. Anger is poison. You must purge it from your mind or else it will corrupt your better nature. Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. ANGER & HAPPINESS are complimentary..Make your Anger so expensive so that on ONE can afford it..& Make your Happiness so cheap that people get it free. As heat conserved is transmitted into energy, so can anger controlled can be transmitted into a power which can move the world. My Anger is $50 by the way, just thought I should let you know. It comes in different flavors too. Ummm, so yummy.
Be Kind. A kindness received should be returned with a freer hand. A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money. Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle. Deliberately seek opportunities for kindness, sympathy, and patience. Choose being kind over being right, and you’ll be right every time. Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. If the gods listened to the prayers of men, all humankind would quickly perish since they constantly pray for many evils to befall one another. Whatever possession we gain by our sword cannot be sure or lasting, but the love gained by kindness and moderation is certain and durable. But know the difference between kindness and foolishness. She asked for $2 not your lifetime savings. Use your head.
Spend Less. Yes, learning how to save is like building an ark before a heavy storm. Starve while they merry, save while they spend and lavish while they cry in hunger. The best way to go shopping is to make a list and never go with your card. And if you forget something, don’t buy it. Next week, it would be first on your list but you have saved yourself some cash. Unsuccessful people are always trying to impress the world with an empty pocket but successful people pay no heed to unnecessary miscellaneous. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you don’t have; remember that what you have was once among the things you only hoped for. That 5$ you’re about to spend on hot dogs, save it. You’ve got no underwear anymore. Pathetic little thing.
Good Hygiene. Good hygiene is one of the most neglected essential key to a richer life. And you still wonder why your interview lasted just two minutes? No one is trying to die on your turn. Quit the perfume young lady, our nose ain’t here to fight world war with your bi-odour each day. Do not make the oxygen more difficult to breathe in. Least I forget, sundry your shoes Chike, it smells like a grave yard in there. And to think you still comfortably walk with them. If those shoes fall into the sea, the fishes in that sea will start walking on land. A perfect gentleman is described by his appearance and capability. If your appearance says nothing good about you, no one would care to know your capability. Know that as you are reading this post, someone in Ondo is still smelling his boxer to know if he can wear it for the sixth time without washing. God have mercy!!
Get Married. Are you broke and hungry? Are you extremely cold at nights? Do you need a hand to lift those heavy tables? Then get married. Husbands are those powerful money producing machines. Let’s talk about the muscles that would keep you baking despite the cold and to also lift those heavy tables. Unless of course, you’re too stupid to marry someone like you. Broke, miserable and lazy. Now, you have a dozen babies to take care of and a drunkard to top it off. A Good Heart And A Rich Account Are Two Different Issues, A Good Heart Can Win Many Relationships, But A Rich Account Can Win And Sustain Life Long Relationship!!! Marriage is a workshop, where the husband works and the wife shops. Dear future husband, I love you for being you and the way you make me feel when I’m with you! I love you for being stinking rich and the way you make me feel rich when I’m with you. A Good Relationship Is Not When Two ‘Perfect People’ Come Together…But Its When Two ‘Imperfect People’ Learn To Enjoy Their Differences. You’re rich and ugly. I’m pretty and broke. Now, we’ll have two ugly kids and two pretty kids who would be taking trips to America each summer. Nicely done.
Invest In Yourself. The greatest investment is to invest in yourself. Better still, in your family. When I say family, I mean your kids and wife not those blood sucking uncles and aunties. Pay heed to what your body needs, when its time to rest, give your body some rest. Or you would suffer from incurable eye bags like me. When it’s time to eat, eat to your satisfaction. Who knows? When another drama over life would start. Smile often but remember to brush more often. Before talking, please connect the tongue to the brain. Be crazy because every great idea came from crazy people. I see no point of writing this post for you because A word ain’t necessary for the wise,
Only The Foolish Need Them.
