Rising Above Your Foundation
I used to know a boy who had to start his life at the age of 16 after he completed secondary school as tables turned for his dad who had retired and spent his gratuity on a building and failed business. It was so glaring to him that if he would even attempt to further his education no one could be of help as there were still two of his elder siblings in higher institution with severe financial struggle to scale through. He had no choice but to look for job and he started teaching. It was just the beginning of a journey stormed with chronic stagnation, failures, delays and struggles. It took him 4 years before he could successfully gain admission into university, he would not give up at 18years, he started his first business, registered in Nigeria, at 20yrs he was admitted to university programme, at 23yrs he partnered with a Surveyor in one of the leading Estate Management company in Lagos to acquire an Acre of land for agricultural purposes. At 25yrs he started a third business which was a Music school. Made his first million at the music school at 26yrs etc; suddenly, tables turned again, all businesses went bankrupt, the family who sold the acre of land came up with a dispute which resulted in the loss of land, had to sell the cars for a fourth business venture to no avail also. At 30yrs he had lost all he ever had as a young chap. What went wrong?
