I vividly recall the story of a man who became popular for engaging in money rituals just to buy the 1980’s edition of the Honda Prelude; you wouldn’t buy that car for 50k today
A guy brutally murdered his brother, just because he wanted to acquire the rave of the moment – Pathfinder Jeep. That same vehicle is now better described as a coffin…. Vanity
I remember as a kid, my whole street gathered at a neighbour’s house to watch a”drama” shown on a “double-door black & white television”. Today there is plasma television and its almost found in every student’s room….. Vanity
Some ladies left their true loves because some rich guy then persuaded them with a Benz 190, which turned out to be the only car they ever owned till date. They found out too late that true love is invaluable….. Vanity
What about Santana, Mercedes Benz V boot, 505 Evolution, Toyota Crown?… All overtaken by latest models of Camry, Honda, Bugatti, Bentley, X6, Acura and Infinity…. Vanity
A guy declared drinks because he launched the Nokia-3310 phone in 2002. Today that phone would embarrass the owner and is a joke compared to the low cost and everyday phones….. Vanity
What about the MTN SIM card that many people went extra miles before they bought for over 30k, today you will not buy it anywhere because all networks are begging people to even take it for free…. Vanity
People are still making the most horrific sacrifices over ‘vanity’ and make enemies over worthless material things. What can I say? Look back at that one thing you want to kill or die for today, and see what becomes of it tomorrow. There is absolutely nothing you can’t achieve. … Take it easy
Sometimes we don’t have to be too curious towards acquiring material things when we vividly know we don’t have enough purchasing power to do so. We don’t have to perform any immoral act to acquire such.. Because.. whether you like it or not.. as time goes on,so long as the clock ticks, new, better, more advanced and more updated version of the one you will kill for now.. will still come out tomorrow. If you killed someone to acquire a Lexus 350… how many more will you kill to acquire a Benz or even the now trending Rollsroyce.
Yes, we all like material things, yes we all likes to follow the trending things. We will want to brag infront of our friends one day on what we have achieved.. but a better approach to this is to sit down.. And think.. look for better ways to make Money easily and engage in them.. . if there is no employment opportunity in the country.. you can still start up a trading business and grow from there… Some will say that there is no money in trading but one thing about the business world people fail to understand is the power of turnovers.. You can start up a small trading business with as low as 20,000.. All you have to do is to save up and invest more.. Grow… yes growth is very important. You need to grow and workhard . and I know you will get that amount of money you need to buy all the material things you want .. I believe in you.. You can do it
All you need is a little time and PATIENCE and you would thank God without regrets. There is actually nothing in this world that is worth going to Hell for, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
TAKE IT easy
Don’t run after the world because you will never catch it , the world will always outrun you
