Where Can I Make It in Life?
From the beginning of time, man has always looked for purpose to their existence, with questions like; who am I? Why am I here? Where do I come from? Is there a meaning and purpose to my existence? What is that purpose? How can it be achieved? Where can I make it in life? Where can I find peace? Where is my promised land? And many more; whys, wheres, whats, and hows to answer. Some of you reading this post have probably asked Google for answer.
Some have even argued that the best place is your country and that you do not have to migrate to other countries. While some have argued the exact opposite. Both sides have reasonable back up for their proposition.
I will not and and cannot answer those questions for you. Just as I have to figure the answer for myself, likewise you. Neither can I tell you that the best place on earth to make it in life is; U.S, U.K, GHANA, NIGERIA, SOUTH AFRICA, LIBERIA, ARGENTINA, etc.
I rather will guide you to your surest source of pure knowledge.
It is often said that Thomas Edison failed 1000 times before successfully inventing the prototype of the light bulb. When a reporter asked Edison how it felt to fail 1,000 times, Edison replied: “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention of 1,000 steps.”
The question is where did that light bulb knowledge come from? Is it from books? Google? Friends? Family? Professors? Philosophers?
If you probably think it’s from friends. Then, I would flash your mind back to Guglielmo Marconi (1874–1937). When he announced that he had discovered a principle by which he could send messages through the air, without the aid of wires or other direct physical means of communication, his friends had him taken into custody, and had him examined in a psychopathic hospital. The fact that he did not dream in vain, is evident today, with the invention of radio, television and most recently, the Internet.Now, where did he get the knowledge from? – Siahyonkron Nyanseor (Happy Holiday December 25, 2001)
According to Socrates: the mind is not a blank slate. He proposed that man has innate knowledge. That’s why as a great teacher, he used the method of questions and answers to bring out the knowledge from each students (The Midwife Strategy).
Back to the title of this post, you can find out the right answer by first finding out who you really are? What are your adaptable features given time and circumstances? what works best and how you can accomplish greatly?
Knowledge is what you seek. It is the reason you are still reading. The best source of the knowledge you seek is not in books, philosophies, theories etc. But the best means is Personal Revelation or revealed knowledge. Revealed knowledge is higher, knowledge that controls the lower forces. It comes from God and God is the Source of pure Knowledge.
To reach out to this kind of knowledge, you begin from the known to the unknown. You must practise the truth you know now, truths like; Faith in Jesus Christ, praying to know, honesty, chastity, love for God and all men, forgiving etc, as you apply the known, you will arrive at the unknown, therefore discovering 1,000 ways to get good things done and you will arrive at superior intelligence with every trial.
In conclusion, where can I make it in Life? Ask God and Keep His commandments. For there is no success in the hussle of life without God -No matter the quantity and quality of hussletips received.
