There are so many sleeping potentials in us that we can really awake. As I have always averred, knowledge(both of yourself & things around you) can generate ideas. How do you get knowledge? Go for it.
After acquiring knowledge, then what?
You must activate your knowledge by putting it to work. Exercising your knowledge is as important as going for knowledge. A dormant knowledge is not better than ignorance. Putting knowledge to work requires you yielding yourself to practice, learning from mistakes while trying to solve problems. Problems are hidden solutions that can be unveiled.
Practice is nothing more than preparation for outstanding potential maximization. I failed not because I didn't know what to do, but because there was a loophole in my preparation. Abraham Lincoln will advice that, when given ten hours to cut down a tree, it is wise to devote your first six hours sharpening your axe. Nothing beats preparation.
To be relevant and useful to the society you must activate your knowledge by putting it to work.


I subscribe to the school of thought that, determination births possibilities. The mountain top is for the few who are ready to take the first, second and the rest bold steps to the top undermining the challenges that attracts giving up. Determination activates focus, enthusiasm and confidence in you. It caused Thomas Edison to invent the electric bulb after many failures which he described as the processes needed to make it work. What about Abraham Lincoln who failed in eight elections before he became the 16th President of United States? Or have you forgotten Oprah Winfrey? Hey, I am not trying to feed you with these biographies for writing sake but to let you know that you have no reason to give up. If you fall nine times, rise up ten times. Be dogged about that you so desire. With passion, determination can be built and with purpose, passion can be generated. I enjoin you this day to stay driven in purpose and shine bright like diamond in the realm of greatness.
