Hey!!!!???, it’s been a long while. A really long while, I just finished my exams and I don’t have anything to do with school for the next six months and counting, that’s because I’m going for IT and I can’t wait to have fun, lots of fun. I don’t mind getting hints about the good places in Lagos???.
Something has been on my mind all week, I’ll really like to get your views too. What stage are we supposed to get to before announcing or celebrating success? How much are we supposed to celebrate our success? How much of our success are we supposed to let out to the public? How long are we supposed to hide our success? These are questions sensible people should ask themselves and a thousand people will have almost different thousand answers.
First of all, I believe some kinds of success can’t be hidden and I also think letting your success speak for itself is way better than announcing it. Starting from there, I just feel we should learn to keep quiet, like keep shut most times. But social media will not let our mouths be shut, we’ll be tempted to show off the little we have achieved and be expecting people to celebrate that little thing.
Learning to keep quiet saves a whole lot of headache, you don’t have to keep reporting how far you’ve gone or the stage you’re in presently. If people get to know, fine and if they don’t, it’s still fine. One of the disadvantages of celebrating half baked success is, people’s comments and reactions will become major catalysts in pursuing your dreams, your desires and your dreams won’t fuel your happiness again, you become very desperate and that’s a really bad thing.
A very good example is someone who just got converted and is already announcing to every Dick and Harry that he’s a changed man, people will want to see changes immediately and it doesn’t work that way, it’s a continuous process, something that happens gradually. He might get discouraged when he sees the disappointment on people’s faces when he still acts otherwise, but if he keeps it to himself, starts growing gradually, leaving behind certain habits that are obvious, people will notice by themselves and commend. That’s the kind of success that’s worth celebrating.
Don’t get me wrong, you can still share your success with your friends and family but always use your discretion on how to say it and how much to say. This is just my point of view, I’ll like to hear yours when you read this.
Please subscribe to my blog????, I’ll really appreciate it. Have a lovely day????
