We lack change. We lack power. All because we lack truth. The mother of all the biggest lies is assumption- little do we know assumption is the mother of all failures. To touch on one of the most controversial matters of the day; the generational dilemma- social stratification.
We talk about changing Africa and prospect to a brighter Africa when the mentality of those who have in their hands is detrimental in all its aspects. We have to change that! Initial to our core business, parents of Africa have two broad choices.
To raise their child to be an impactful African, or to create a book worm who wants to complete the birth, learn, work and death sequence. It’s so unfortunate that most parents choose the latter out of all the choices they have.
Frankly, I do not blame them but l blame the African mentality that has been cultivated till date. The mentality that every child should be an academic prodigy, if not we rely to supressing the talent that the child has. This is one concept that America and others has worked to eradicate.
Africa should too! This is the sole reason why our development will always be stuck to a snail’s pace. Furthermore this is why l say- dear parent, you have a choice; utilise it!
Main matter of the day; on students of Africa having two broad choices, to create or to work on creations. The only way to changing our Africa is not through building or other fallacies people believe but, it is through changing our mentality. Not the mentality of our leaders only, neither of adults nor of the influencers but each and every individual who is African.
Reference to the most common mistake. As a child grows, we ask him or her which business he or she wants to start. Unlike the common problem of asking who he or she wants to work for. Of course not everyone will start a business, but these are the baby steps of change.
We are not to assume as students that I will change Africa, but it is a responsibility we have to carry. From our mentality, extended to our opportunities and other life spheres that need transition.
That is inclusive of every African, because the sun does not forget to shine on a village because it is too small. Dreams of brighter days will not remain dreams through the mother to African change- choice.
