I was in a vehicle with four other passengers yesterday’s evening, all of them were speaking the same language (their dialect) except me. The crazy part is; it was a journey of about three hours, I don’t understand their language and none of them can speak English. Everything was going smoothly until one of them mentioned the name of the state’s Governor.
Voice raised, the driver joined the argument, the five were speaking at the same time. No one is willing to listen to the other party. I maintained my cool until they started pointing fingers at me. One even tapped me. I was like “Shuu, what’s my business with all of these? Besides, I don’t even understand all they were saying
I guess they wanted me as the judge, I asked them to explain what’s happening, none of them could, they don’t understand what I was saying and all of their words look like they were speaking in tongues to me. It was a frustrating experience. I couldn’t contribute because of the Language barrier
When your Dreams and Preparation aren’t speaking the same language, you’ll end up in a frustrating situation. You can only take advantage of opportunity that’ll lead you to the fulfillment of your dream when you prepare for it!!
You want to build your career? Take up professional courses. Is it Business? Get trained!!! It’s good when you think big but, you must realize that; your preparation and thinking must match!!!
Don’t just think of becoming something without taking giant steps to be better if not best in that field. No matter how beautiful and great your dreams are, people will only pay for the value your expertise can deliver.
Stop wishing, start doing the necessary. What do you require to achieve the dreams ahead? Start paying the price now. Pay to learn, Commit to learning, be addicted to taking actions.
