As Change Agents Let us be Grateful
As a change agents, we should be grateful for what we have. When I was in the United States, I blamed everyone for my situation and as advanced as the country was, I still was broke, busted and disgusted. It was in 2010 I learned the attitude of gratitude; understanding who I am as a child of God who began to understand that I am the master of my fate and the captain of my soul. It was only then that America began to blossom for me. Before 30, I became a director of a Policy think tank in Chicago.
My soul began to draw me home to Nigeria. When my elder brother got married in 2009, I realized it was time to come home. I didn’t make the move until 2012 because of the comfort of always having light, water, and basic amenities like calling 911 for emergencies. Eventually, I took the plunge and came home to Nigeria. I had to get used to pumping water if I needed to take my bath with pipe borne water, and turn on the generator if I needed light to iron my clothes. And let’s not talk about the heat outside because the generator cannot carry the air conditioner.
In spite of the discomfort, I know opportunities are here, and grateful for what I have in my hand. If we have a positive attitude and take responsibility for our successes and failures, no government can stop us from making it in life. They can provide an enabling environment for us to thrive but the responsibility for greatness is still up to us. If you don’t believe me, ask the change agents we have displayed on our website and social media.
My dear people, change lies within you. Let us transform ourselves individually while transforming Nigeria collectively. So tell me, what are you grateful for?
