Nollywood actor, Bolanle Ninalowo has shared some dose of advice via social media.
The actor did an inspiring post on his Instagram account where he advised people to take their stand and do what they have to do to achieve their goals.
He stated that people should not just look at what a man as achieved but should make effort to look at the 'behind the scene' that brought the limelight.
It was however not clear if he was talking to a specific person or generalizing his opinion. Read his words;
'They told you, you were better than me. They said go after him, what does he do, what does he know. Whatever he does, you can do better. Well they have inspired you quite alright and thats what we all need brother. Here is the question thou! Did they show you "my behind the scenes" because the basis for your pursuit is simply my highlight reel. Brother i love you so i will tell you the secret.
'The seeds of the success you so envy and pursue are buried in my failures. My success is simply a by product of my failures. My present is a by product of my past. I tell you this because i wanna see you and him at the top for thats where we all belong. Doing our things respectively and uniquely as our finger prints and destinies. The only way we can prosper together thou is to hold eachothers hands and support one another.
'A priceless process that rewards us with limitless events and opportunities. In essence, stay in your lane bro and do your thing. A wise man once told me: first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they hate you, then you win. It takes the glimmer of just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Find your own path or better still, create it. Only God is king and power belongs to him alone.
'That man you idolize aint nofin but a product of Gods grace. The grace of God on his work shines his light and makes him look superior. He is nothing but a pen in the hands of his maker. He is not the best because there is no best bro. Time and chance happens to all. he has only been given dominion over the works of his fathers hands. When he dies, his glory doesnt decend after him. Only the lives he touched keeps his memory. Go and prosper my brother. You aint better than me. You never can be! My only goal is to outdo my past and not you. Make that your motto and lets win together. Enjoy your weekend brother.'
