“You can determine what your future holds based on how much time and energy you spend working on yourself now.”- Les Brown.

This world is filled with talented and ambitious people. People who can have decillions in their bank accounts. This is real, most people can live in houses made of gold, silver and diamonds. But all that never seems to come true as there are enemies that everyone of us are trying to fight every single day. Those enemies are: laziness, fear and low self-esteem.

The minute you start letting reality rule your imagination you are crushed! Why spoil all the fun? Dreaming is not a crime.

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take the first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” – Les Brown.

Who said you are not worth it? Let’s stop denying God’s will. You are in this world because you are needed. Stop discouraging yourself because you are putting someone’s life in danger. Many of our brothers are in streets smoking dangerous substances. It is your job to save someone’s life in a hospital. Someone, might ask how? Well by taking that first step in high school and choosing mathematics and sciences, without complaining that those subject streams are difficult.

Avoid taking bad comments from other people as some are afraid that your success will lead you to becoming a millionaire. Take it from me, a seventeen-year-old girl who believes in nothing but her dreams. I am talking about a young girl who will soon be the president of South Africa without a doubt. Move from being a nobody to being a somebody. I will remind you again in the coming years not only as your president, but as well as one of the most well-known authors in South Africa. I will raise the flag, you will see.
