You are the strongest that has ever been, Believe in Yourself!
You might say, ‘The youth are the leaders of today’ or say ‘They are the leaders of tomorrow.
I agree with any of the two.
I’ve never been a fanatic of time travel but I’ve surely watched some movies about it.
the current set of youths, or generally the young people will at some point be the people driving the economy. They’ll will be the people under watch in terms of setting the pace for innovation and technology. The transition has already started and the takeover has already started.
If you had twenty days to cut a tree, spent the first nineteen sharpening the axe, right? There is need for thorough preparation by the youth today, if they want to have a sit at the change makers table in the future.
Thinking of it, are we ready yet? Are we doing what it takes to reach the other side? Or we’d still wait till the last minute to sharpen our axes? We have to be ready to tackle the substantial changes in our society, economic, social and demographic changes. We have to get our ideas in place and ready for implementation.
As at this age, we should be setting achievable goals in preparation for the future era. The youth need to believe in their ideas, put them into action and impact the society positively. There is a lot we can explore and new fields we can venture into. As I recently wrote in my last blog, sometimes we have the ideas, but never work on actualizing them.
Lest I forget, grab any chance you have. Thinking of vying for a political seat, go for it! Looking for scholarships, apply, don’t let the drive in you varnish, go for it! The victor is the one that went to the battle field, they’ll always be remembered for trying, even at the times when they lost. More often than not, many live to be haunted by the much they could do when they had the chance. They however in one way or the other, let the chances go.
You have something in mind? You are not late, this is the time to work on it.
The first thing to do once you have an idea is to believe in it, for it is unique and from ‘YOU.’ However funny it is, trust you me, it is unarguably yours. The first phases can be tricky but just say, IT IS MINE, then step forward head up. Gather all your courage and guts and face the world, share your idea and you’ll be surprised to find that’s what they have been waiting.
You have been writing music scripts or even record yourself with your phone. Take a bold move, go to studio have your first audio out. You never know, it will terrorize the local waves and you can win a collabo with already established artist. That’s how your journey will move up the ladder will start.
Maybe you coded an app, which you shared with a friend then stopped. ‘My friend’, if WhatsApp was never developed just because Facebook and Instagram where operational, we could not be chatting from the comfort of our zones. To let you know actually, WhatsApp and Instagram were initially startups and with time, they got bought out by Facebook. You never know the future actually, your start up or idea can grow up to challenge even the existing ‘giants’. Or still, who knows, you get ‘bought up too’ by other large companies too, right? It’s a two-sided coin, you benefit, they benefit too.
Believing in yourself also entails closing one ear and nots listening to negative people.
There are people who are very conservative and do not believe in change. They will always discourage you and you will end up abandoning your idea. They are kind of people who will tell you, do not study law, they field is already full or with only Kenya Airways operating in Kenya, why study piloting, you will never be employed. They are the same people who will tell you your blog will not attract views and traffic since there are other established bloggers and will think with Diamond dominating the bongo music east Africa you can’t sing bongo and be successful.
I can spend hours and hours on the need to believe in ourselves and take action. It’s actually the theme of my blog too, believe in yourself.
You are the strongest that has ever been. See you on the other side!
