WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT YOURSELF IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT SOMEBODY THINKS ABOUT YOU
…FOLA DANIEL ADELESI
I do not remember if I have told you this story before but it does not cost me anything to relate the story again. When I was a student in class 1 during my college days, I was walking down to the dormitory with two of my friends when I saw the Senior Prefect who, then, was in class six. I admired him so much and I coveted is integrity and reputation as a leader. He commanded so much respect and I remember I once sought a chance just to talk to him. I told my friends I was going to be the Senior Prefect of my set but all they did was jeer at me. Six years later, I became the Senior Prefect. I also commanded respect and people were talking about me in places I’ve vever been to. It’s because I had that picture in mind. The college is Mayflower School, Ikenne, Nigeria.
Create a picture of where you want to be. What matters is not what others think so long as you believe it. You will be there.
