A few things you’re probably not taking serious in your early 20’s #beforeyouturn25
Timely discoveries are the pathways to timely elevations. Discovery isn’t the same as timely discoveries. A student who wasn’t aware he had so much funds to play with and went on a compulsory fast , only to discover he had so much money five days later had a discovery; but a man who received the bank alert as soon as the money was wired to him had a timely discovery- they are myriad of worlds apart.
I love to drive a lot but I am yet to find a driver who drives faster than the brightness of his headlamps. This is to say that we go farther in distance in commensurate terms with the timely discoveries at our disposal. One of my favourite quotes goes:
“…the best time to plant a tree was 25years ago; the next best time is now’ Talk about timely discoveries!
It’s in my character to pen down a few lines every morning before getting out of bed, and in one of such times, I was immediately amazed to find out that life was divided into segments; each segment with a specific set of identified goals which if not attended to could hamper one’s growth hinder the success of the next phase.
Take for example a man who lived to be say 90 or 100years made it into the 4th quarter of 25years each- the first quarter being 0-25years and the last being 76-100. How you begin a building determines the height it would go.
It however becomes apparent to realise that the first 25years of a man’s life is possibly the most important for him as that sets the pace, tone and depth for his whole life. The secrets of men are definitely in their stories.
In this series I will be sharing a few of the things I’m persuaded you must prepare for, discover or learn ‘how to’ before you turn 25.
However, here’s the DISCLAIMER: life isn’t factored into human timing. The Bible makes us understand that swiftest person does not always win the race, nor the strongest man the battle…Eccl9:11 (TLB).
Remember I began by saying ‘the best time to plant a tree was 25years ago; the next best time is now’.
Even if you are well above 25, a lot of ground could be covered. If Moses got it right, If Abraham did, if Paul did- anyone, with the help of God and great commitment can – you too can and I believe you can.
