Few years ago, I had the privilege of being elected and served with these amazing people at the University. Though from different cultures and backgrounds, we conquered together against all odds.We made an indelible impact collectively as a team on the University whilst in office. I'm always proud of the team and the amazing moments of discussions, disagreements, agreements anytime I remember our time together. It all made sense in the end.
The point here is, there's unity in diversity if we look to harness our talents, gifts, abilities and skills for the collective good of our communities. Irrespective of your skin colour, tribe, ethnicity or religion, you are designed/created for impact. Personally, I believe God has blessed every individual with something you can give. It doesn't necessarily have to be monetary. Just a little act of kindness or compassion can make a huge impact on someone's life.
We all have something to give no matter how unimportant or poor you may think you are. Serve where you can, contribute when you can, lead where you can especially when there's no reward attached to it. You'll be shocked when you start reaping the seeds you've sown after now.
I remember my active years in Junior Chamber International, the Polytechnic Ibadan. JCI taught me how to sacrifice or give back to the society without expecting anything in return.
Service to humanity is indeed the best work of life. Think of what you can give back to your community/country without expecting a reward. If we all have this mindset, the world will be a better place to live in.
Decide to be an agent of positive transformation anywhere you find yourself. Don't wait for the government, don't wait for anyone, just go ahead to do your bit as I do mine.
Be intentional about giving back and helping others out of the little you have! You can, I can, we can!
