Success is a relative word which means different things to different people.
However, for one to be called successful, he/she must possess at least one of these criteria; certificate, connection & ‘sabificate’.
Certificate in an ordinary term is called paper qualification. It is achieved when someone undertakes a course in an educational or entrepreneurial institution.
Connection has to do with people in position of authority that one knows.
In our society, using Nigeria as a case study, we see least qualified people being appointed to occupy vacant positions which they have no qualified skill to handle.
But my prior concern is the third criterion; ‘sabificate’ which may also mean creativity.
It simply means using your hands to create wealth.
It is also the adding of value and spice to an already existing thing.
‘Sabificate’ without Certificate or Connection can pave way for an individual to become highly successful.
Creativity such as;
- The art of cake baking.
- Soap making.
- Dry cleaning.
- Carpentry, amongst others.
I’m conclusion, everybody must strive to be successful no matter the challenges that come their way.
- You have to discover where and what your gift and talent is and strive to develop them.
