AM I STUPID?Monday Utomwen
I have always known that in the course of life it is compulsory and definitely unavodable that at times we slip and fall, and in some instances we run down the descent that is called a steep valley only to successfully collide at the bottom and either end up faced down, whispering to the muds of life that has formed a creamed cake of forlorn and despair in some persons intelligent QUEST for POT of DESTINY or we end up faced up, with the sky of opportunities open wide before us and light, the sun and the moon, to give us hope. Sometimes it does baffles me that while many are seeking for answers to their present state of dissatisfaction others who definitely become great are asking themselves questions.
QUESTIONS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Many times when I was caught in the web of uncertainty and doubt about my quest for wisdom and skillful knowledge in the possession and creation of wealth, I indeed made a startling discovery that it was the questions I asked myself and not the answers that were more important. Let’s consider these lines of thoughts:
Q1-IS THIS THE BEST I CAN BE?
A bird cannot grow bigger than its cage neither can the fish in a pond understand the beauty in the perilous ocean; certainly you cannot exceed your expectations in life when you feel you have arrived and
this is the best you can be. If the only pool of success you know is yours, my friend you need to step out and see the vastness of the open ocean, better still you need to fly higher to see the unending horizon, what will take you from this state of stupor or from what I term the rigor mortis of the brain is the question you ask yourself…….’IS THIS THE BEST I CAN BE?’
Q2-WHO SAID IT COULD NOT BE DONE?
I have often had my great dreams and visions brought down to -30oCelsius by people whose minds are numbed with littleness and by those who see only the impossibilities in every quest. Anyway I don’t blame them, how do you expect your vision of 1000ft by 2500ft to be comprehensible to a mind of 10ft by 5ft, but I am able to wipe clean the slime they spread over my dream by asking myself the question….’WHO SAID IT COULD NOT BE DONE? And tell me what great victories does he have to his credit which qualifies him to judge what can and can’t be done’.
Q3-WHAT’S STOPPING YOU?
Have you ever had these great feeling that comes like a thief in the night which makes you feel that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to do, a good form of superiority complex, but shockingly that feeling is gone and you are still where you don’t like to be, I do know that greatness is like the waters of the ocean and everyone has the opportunity of drawing a cup-full, so may I ask…WHAT’S STOPPING YOU?
Q4-DOES THIS LOOK LIKE WHAT I WANT?
At times at the restaurant we order a food and when we see
