Honesty Can Get You Out of Poverty this Eid Ul Adha (Ileya)
Are you a young man feeling frustrated about life because
you can't find a job or the one you have earns you little and you can barely
save N1,000 at the end of the month?
Let me give you an idea of what you can do this Eid ul Adha
(Ileya) season. A lot of your successful kinsmen and neighbours will be more
accessible around this time, whether you are celebrating Eid in your home town
or city. Find time to socialize with them and be helpful to them. Ensure, that
you let them know that before they leave town you just want their advice and
assistance on an idea you have to better your life.
Pitch the idea of them facilitating your access to a car to
do e-taxi work, let them know that your 5-year plan out of poverty involves
working to earn money from this business either by paying the car owner rental
or purchasing the vehicle on hire purchase over 2-3 years.
This is where your honesty comes to play. The investor would
be interested in knowing if you are trustworthy and will not run away with the
car, misuse the vehicle and do other
things to cheat them and break your agreement. You are likely to need
guarantors, again, it is your trustworthiness that will encourage people to
stand for you.
Of course, you need to be a good driver and have a license
for this to be feasible but you can always work on these if they are lacking.
You might need to talk to a few people before finding anybody, but don't be
discouraged by initial scepticism or rejection, keep asking, keep trying and of
course, pray for divine intervention.
You are not interested in e-taxi? No problem, replicate the
same process with whatever you need to do to make progress in life; be-it a scholarship or a business grant.
Leverage on your honesty and keep to agreements, your
breakthrough might not be far away with dedication and commitment to work.
