Be the you you can be
By Alma Namene Amunyela |
Back then in the day when our mothers were growing up, there was so much limitation on what a lady can be.
A lady could be a teacher, a nurse, a cook, an office cleaner and domestic worker and others related to those. This was because women were not allowed by the system to become anything or everything of who they wanted to be.
But now things have changed. Young girls have every opportunity to become anything. You can become the best version of you no matter what. The only thing which is holding you back is the fear of failure, the fear of trying, the fear of becoming the best you can be.
My dear sister, never doubt yourself. Hard work and commitment will take you there. You have everything necessary for you to make it if you are committed to what you want to become. If you want to become a doctor you only need commitment to your studies.
If you want to become a professor, you only need commitment to your books. If you want to become a lawyer, accountant or anything, you can become one through commitment. If you want to become a top business woman, you only need hardwork and discipline.
And, of course, if you want only to be the best hairstylist in town, then without any doubt you can be it if you are committed to the job.
Never listen to those who say you can’t become the person you want to be. Never listen to your fears. Never listen to anyone or anything that says you can’t become the you you want to be.
Becoming the you you want to be is the best thing you can do for yourself, your family and for your country too.
