Open Letters


Letter to Phebe

Dear Phebe,

Something has been bothering my mind since the last time we spoke about the future, You were full of fear; fear of the unknown and fear of the future. You reminded me so much about other young bright people I’ve met, bursting with potentials. So many beautiful dreams of top notch meetings, state of the act cribs and rides, Chains of oil wells and companies, ”obese”  bank accounts, dreams of becoming president  name it! great aspirations flooding through their minds. But what saddens me is that majority of them wait for the perfect time to start this journey to ”Dream Actualization”, little by little their dreams take a downward slope, efficacy therefore becomes zero (efficacy=0), and when they realize how behind time they are, most of them give up and settle for mediocre lives. Millions of questions might be flooding through your mind, some of which I can guess, and the rest forgive me I don’t have the ability to read minds (Yet). When is the perfect time to do a great thing? when is the right time to start? when is the right time to inspire, help and motivate someone? when is the right time to to learn what leadership truly is about? I overheard you saying you want to be the CEO of the biggest multinational company, (forgive me for eavesdropping). The right time to start is now, doesn’t matter if you are 17, 30 or 40. If you wait for the perfect factors, they will never show up, because they do not exist, You have to create your perfect time, the perfect opportunity and the perfect platform.You may think Its too late now, your friends; Damiete, Omolola, Ogechi and Halima all seem to be ahead of You, its never to late to start your journey to ”Dream Actualization”. ”better late than never”, remember that phrase Mr Columbus uses all the time? sure you do. Wise, Rich Solomon said”I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time”. So don’t give up, trust in God to help You (He never disappoints) , talk to him about any and everything.Oh one more thing, remember that blog we were talking about? it has finally started!!. Finally, as You start a new week, i want You to ponder on all these things I have told You, start your journey to dream actualization, without fear, for God has not given you the spirit of fear but of courage. I will write to you more often.
