Have you ever seen a month old baby walking unaided on his feet? I bet your answer is in line with mine: NO. A new born don't just start taking his first steps a couple of months after he was born, there are phases he must pass through before he can take his first shaky steps, he first learn how to crawl, sit, walk and maybe then he can learn to run. In the same vain I feel as humans, there are some phases/patterns we all have to go through in life, I grouped these phases into learning/working, earning and returning..
But you know what? If you look around closely, you will notice many of our youths of today only want to experience one part.. Earning. Let me put it plainly for us, they don't want to work but want to have a Range Sports and in their quest for a short cut to riches they delve into all manner of crook ways for a financial gain. There is no way you can be poor if you follow the patterns of life. See just know in your teens or youthfulness, your primary objective in life should be learning, focusing on your purposes, exploring your God given talents, finding out new skills and learning your trade well. If really you are on track with your purpose and you diligently learn your trade, the earning part will come easy and maybe then you can work on giving back to society..
All these phases have their timing and only you know how to fix them rightly into your life so you can come out a success. Young people are so eager to leave the learning phase these days, just relax and keep working hard at it and even you will be surprised at how the next phase will creep up on you unexpectedly. To my elders who by oversight didn't lay a proper foundation in their youth, don't panic or worry because no one is ever too old to learn.. Keep learning, work hard, because everyone has the potential to finish well in life with the right attitude. Don't give up 'cos you never might know how close you were if you do!
Who agrees with me that there are phases we all have to go through in life as humans which must be followed categorically in a way..
