Two sales men who work for a shoe company were sent on a market survey in a village with a population of about 30,000 people. The two sales men came back with two different reports .They both got to the village and discovered the people their don’t wear shoe, sales man A reported that since the people don’t wear shoes, there is no need shipping shoes to the village. He concluded that the company should look else where to expand the market. while sales man B reported that since the people don’t wear shoes, that it’s a great opportunity for them to expand their market to the village and also ship more shoes to the village. The difference between marketer A and B is that one saw obstacle while the other saw opportunity to make more money and make a difference the lives of the people.
The same scenario is what is happening in our country, while many Nigerians are waiting at the different embassies to travel out of the country ,many foreign business men are coming in to settle down to set up and run businesses because they have discover a huge opportunities. nkon ta wa lo si sokoto ,wa ni sokoto wa ( A Yoruba saying) meaning what we are looking for a far of is right where we are.
What are you seeing? Are you seeing challenges or opportunities? Because in the midst of our numerous problems lies solution if we can see. Indeed there are many problems around because there are many Nigerians too around to provide the solutions.
Let us Quit the blame game and take up the challenge to see and think differently.
I pray that God will open the eyes of Nigerian Youths to see. Amen
