Scale Success


How do people measure success?

I observed we measure success with a wrong and biased measuring scale.

We measure what we have achieved based on what another person who most probably have the same skill have achieved.

A man measures his strength based on the weight he can lift compared to the weight another man can lift.

A writer measures his success comparing the number of books another writer has published, or even the number of likes he gets on Social networks as compared to another writer.

No. No. No.

You need only you to successful.

Success is measured by what you can do or could do compared to what you have done.

You know if you want to sit down 8hours and study without standing up, you can; but you only sit for 2hours and unfortunately get a poor grade.

Your success is not to be measured based on how good grades another person has made, because we have different capabilities.

The number of likes a writer gains for a post doesn't matter as much as the effort he has put in, and the lives it has really touched.

If the one knows he can write better than he or she does, but out of laziness to put the fingers and brain to work, does the much that is seen, the one isn't successful yet, or rather his or her success cannot be measured on the basis of what another person has done better.

Most times, out of laziness and other circumstances, we tend to pocket our capabilities, and therefore come below what we can and should actually be.

This happens in every aspect of our lives.

You and God are the two who truly know when you have become successful, because they are the two who knows what your strength can have you do, compared to what you have really done.

I honestly do feel unsuccessful sometimes, just when I have measured my strength, and truly discover that hey; I could have done much more.

What I'm driving at is; don't be envious of other people's success, neither look down on anyone. Be honest at doing your best, and you shall be the best; with a car or with a jet.

Again, we must be ready to bear the consequences of deliberately refusing to put our strength to work!

Sometimes, you are coming from a place of pain in your life. Pain that has been persistent for a while. And you don't know what to do about it. You are always sad. You have thought about taking your life many times, but the thought of how your family

If you plant a Chinese bamboo seed, it will ignore you and sleep in the ground for up to even 5 years. Then within six weeks, it sprouts up to 80 to 90 feet! What?!😮😮🤤 You didn't know right? Oh. Maybe you knew.

This is the question that many ask, and many men are positive about it, but first, the question should be; SHOULD indecent dressing increase the percent of RAPE? In all honesty, let us answer this question like human beings that are not mentally sick

In this world, the people who deserve an applaud for the work they do are those who expose their health for our sake. They are those who get dirty their best of clothes to serve us. They are those who deflect their ego for that job not everyone can

With the help of multi-lingual ability, the power of discrimination can be limited drastically. One would hardly find a reason to neglect or underestimate a global citizen/foreign folk or make him unable to laugh at a local joke in class....

This is a very delicate age, not just for your sister but yourself. If mum, dad or anyone have given you an impression that whatever you do doesn't really matter because you're male, please reset your mindset for your own good! For your own good...

1979 by Blessing Chidinma AMADI

It was a suggestion stampede and laughter filled the room. Many funny suggestions hauled in, but they gave Blake a lot of insight. To end the get together, he introduced Asher as his girlfriend and thanked her duly for the initiative. They were all happy for him. He had succeeded to build stronger the “33 bond" again! The couple decided to start something beautiful with the mixture that left everyone wanting more, and that was the beginning of a company that would later become historic; “33 Export Lager Beer". More historically and memorable, of friendship bonds. Every year, the same time, the 33 class of 1978 came together to celebrate the Blake’s initiative of 1979!

It was time for Nisha to bath us, so we get ready for aluminium pot's birthday, and she decided to finish the little detergent she had left before going for the lime colour liquid soap. Who to go first was the problem! I mean I am a bowl. I am expensive. My adoption took a long while because of my rareness. This was the fight. I explained all these to them and they wouldn't listen.
