5 Things To Avoid As A Young Man If You Must Make It

We all have our struggling days. Most wealthy people you know in the society today all had their struggling days; except you were born with a silver spoon. It is nothing to be ashamed of because as the Bible puts it: 'Do not despise the days of humble beginnings'.

Truth is, you won't even remember your struggling days when you finally attain success.

If you were born with no spoons, you need not despair. Success is not only achieved by physical strength; it also has to do with your mental strength. Your level of rational thinking matters a lot, for without it, your physical strength will be equivalent to pouring water into a basket. I believe you know what that means.

Below are some things you should avoid as a young man who desire to make it in life:

1) BEER PARLORS/DRINKING JOINTS: You can have a drink or two occasionally (that's if you drink). What is killing is when you make it a habit to be there everyday to oblige your urge for alcohol! These spots are pocket-drainers for struggling guys. At the end of the day, you'll discover that you've not been able to meet most of your important needs. Why? Your habit is draining your meagre resources at the expense of self-development. Also avoid football gambling.

2) CALL GIRLS: Once you entangle yourself in this unfavourable market where deposits are allowed but no withdrawals, you can be completely compared to a fly that's entangled in a spider's web! If you spend thousands of naira monthly on prostitutes, my brother, your future is not brighter than the back of a cooking pot!

3) FINANCIAL WOMEN: If you can afford a phone of N280,000 for your girlfriend without waving, very fine. After all, we give in love. But not when you are in the process of building a life. There's a time for all things. Leave these set of people for those who are already comfortable, rich or have enough to throw around. Life is not and has never been a competition. You too will get there if you strive. Don't be fooled by flashy appearance. Women are created with brains too; they can work and take care of their needs. Don't kill yourself to make a woman look super fly while you are struggling to survive. It makes no sense, for tides and times come and go. 

Let whoever you are with know your present state. The good ones will encourage you but the materialistic ones... hmmm.

4) COMPETITIVE LIFE: This has never been a helpful friend to young guys. What will it profit a young guy if he spends thousands for a bottle of beer in club, knowing the neighbourhood shops sell same for N200? The kids who spend lavishly right in the club or elsewhere trust their account balance (either thrugh Yahoo, credit card fraud, babalawo, music runs, etc). Trying to compete with them is useless. Regret is a personal thing. Nobody regrets with you Ogbeni, experience na the best teacher but to learn from anoda man own go make you escape paying the high price.

5) MULTIPLE AFFAIRS: Just like patronizing call-girls (Point 2 above), engaging yourself in multiple affairs as a young guy is a fatal blow that can slow your progress. Apart from wasting resources, you will become less focused. My brother, wetin you dey find go Sokoto dey inside your Shokoto o! Even if she's a 'village girl', you can 'package' her as far as you both love and understand each other. Look for an understanding and emotionally mature lady to date. Stop running after these so called slay queens! They need yahoo-yahoo guy who can throw free money.
