THE BARROW PUSHER WHO BECAME A MILLIONAIRE – A TRUE EVENT.

Due to reasons known to him and evident to the economical downsizing trespassing in the country he became a barrow pusher in one of the states in Nigeria, Enugu State. This happened in the year 2017.

An opportunity came to be a millionaire through a promotional offer organised by one of the leading seasoning company in Nigeria, ONGA, and he grabbed the opportunity immediately. This happened in the year 2020.

While pushing barrow in the market, assisting people in carrying their loads he picked sachets of ONGA and when it had gotten to fifty sachets, he would go to the redemption center to submit for his reward. The first submit earned him a reward of Airtime which i supposed triggered his happiness of continuation.

Favour’s ray shone upon him when he tried out the second time submitting another batch of fifty sachets of ONGA seasoning which earned him a reward of one million naira.

What a happy man he became!

During his interview he said something that stunned me. That sentence showed the degree of awareness his preparation had gotten him to. This also means that he was pushing the barrow as a means to an end. Such wisdom!

He said “I implore the company to supply me ONGA products from the one million naira so that i can use it to start up business”

Such an awareness! Such a preparative soul!

He was READY!

He was PREPARED!

He had a PLAN!

What if out of shame he decided not to push the barrow and went into cyber crime or perhaps went into any crime of any sort?

What if out of shame he did not pick up those sachets from wherever he picked it and would probably cast it away saying that it is not worth it.

What if he never took the chance in trying out such thing.

What I learnt from this young man experience was that HE ALREADY HAD A PLAN TO WORK ON but due to circumstances and reasons best known to himself, he had to first try out opportunities that are stacked up around him in various way so that he will use it to get his dream achieved.

Five opportunities that the Lockdown brought right to your door step

Life is not all about opportunities, it is an opportunity in it self. A privilege.

This Lockdown has given us a lot of opportunities to get things right. To step back, examine and strike forward; targeted and precise.

You can check out What you must do to enjoy the lockdown.

Here is what lockdown has given us.

Opportunity to Rekindle

A flame dying off is calling darkness to come along with its veil. But here we are with an opportunity to rekindle our passion for the things we had engaged ourselves in. To rekindle our love for what you are doing. To rekindle our flair for what we are keen to know or do. To rekindle our Love and passion for God.

Opportunity to Relaunch

A lot of times we’ve had ideas worth innovating. We’ve had goals worth achieving and plans worth working upon. But due to some reasons of our schedules, we haven’t been meeting up. Most especially the employees. But here is a chance to relaunch that idea and see how it goes. Just a little touch can settle the scores on your favour.

Opportunity to Reengage your formula

We all have formula to which we operate our board. I have mine; which am currently working on. Nobody’s formula is similar to anyone. Just the way you have individual differences that how your formula is. This is a time to reengage your formula. Your formula is a system of calculated approach towards achieving success in your endeavor.

Opportunity to stabilize

Stability is one of the aspects of our lives that helps us bring forth results. When you are stable, you understand how things are done much better. An unstable mind will always make a mistake. Imagine an unstable hand trying to pass a thread through the eye of a needle. How awful? Well, that’s what instability does to you. This is the time to stabilize your self.

One thing that affects a man’s stability is knowledge. Imagine going to an exam hall without the knowledge of what you are about facing.

Knowledge is power but the application of it is wisdom; that’s where the power is seen.

An opportunity to Love

A Love well expressed is found in giving and sharing what we have with those close and far away from us. Let’s make use of this opportunity to bring back that affectionate feeling that hate or job might have taken away from us. This is the time.
