Emancipation “the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.”
Today people value sexy breasts and nipples or six packs over brains and principles. And that’s why more Nigerians prefer to watched Big Brother Nigeria than CNN or documentaries. How did we get here? We got here by thinking entertainment is valuable (please don’t get me wrong, entertainment has its place in our life).
That’s why more Nigerian pay for VVIP for a comedy show and think that a seminar, workshops but say book is too expensive.
Most single ladies wants a sound and responsible guy, yet all she has is a wardrobe of designer clothes, but no library or a book of her own, and the gentlemen the same.
Asked many students when was the last time they read a book, and they will say “during examination”.
They can buy the latest phone or gadgets different types of hairs, clothes, jewelries…. But when it comes to EMPOWERING themselves, they will say price is too high or I don’t this now.
No matter what you have, you are what you value the most.
I challenge you to emancipate yourself, invest in empowering your self and your mind. Invest in books, seminars and workshops, build networks.
Trust me, there’s a huge potential here, even in a growing country of over 160 million people managed by mediocre and leaders of nuisance value, if ONLY you and your team can stand out, we can go further ahead as we’re building minds, businesses, people and brands.
The revolution is here and now but not by guns or protest or violence but in self liberation.
