PostSubject: Advice To Students: Start Now To Prepare For Life After School   Sat Jan 16, 2016 7:48 am

Let's make something clear,
“students think". In fact,
students think a lot about
money, drinks, parties, opposite
sex and so on but most
importantly students think
about their lives after school,
which is good.
The bad thing however is that
what they think about life after
school are majorly unrealistic
thoughts like, "hey, I am finally
in 100 level studying economics
in Kogi State University, and I'll
graduate in 4 years’ time, then
go for service and probably do
some masters and PhD thingy
then get a job and make
That's so unrealistic that its
makes WWE wrestling more
real. Its plain garbage thought
you need to start getting out of
your head. This life isn't
Hollywood, and when you're
born into one hell of a country
like Nigeria you need to wise up
and start thinking with your
If you can take your time and
look outside your window to
see millions of graduates
roaming about the streets you'll
probably understand that it’s
not as easy as you think it is, if it
was that easy your parents and
your friends parents and all
parents in Nigeria will be multi
billionaires and you may not
even need to go to school.
Life isn't easy, and Nigeria is
making life even harder for
Nigerians. The labour market is
so choked up, it will take extra
power for an angel to pass
through. There is hardship in
every corner of the country and
the earlier you realize these
things, the better for you.
So instead partying and smiling
all around school why don't you
sit yourself down and not only
think logically but also plan
logically. These topics might get
you onto the right path:
- First and foremost you need to
realize you only have one life to
live, every circumstance you find
yourself will most definitely
come once, you don't go to
primary school twice, well,
except you're going there the
second time to teach or
something. My point is, in every
situation you find yourself you
have to try hard in making the
best outta that situation, if you
don't succeed, it’s okay, at
least you tried.
- Ask yourself questions, like
why are there few rich people in
the country, what can I do to
get there, what are my
potentials, what are my
weaknesses. You have tons of
questions you should start
asking yourself.
- You need to start tasking
yourself. Are you too young to
make money?? I mean, there are
lots of unemployed graduates
out there who still depend on
their parents. I know you don't
want to belong in that category
when you're done with school.
You need to know what you
have to do to make that money
so you do not have to depend
on anybody.
God has given you a talent, why
don't you discover it and start
using it to make money now.
There are tons of things you can
do as an undergraduate that can
cough out money for you, you
just need to think and plan on
how to strike a balance between
your academics and what you're
It's not how petty the job is or
how little you're earning. It’s
about knowing for a fact that
you can do something to
improve your situation.
A lot of OND, HND, BSc, PhD
holders are out there (those
certs are common these days),
some even have all those certs
with them at the moment but
have nothing to show for it
because they failed to realize
that school is not about learning
on how to work for a boss, it’s
also about how to develop
yourself to being your own
- You need to stop thinking
about your future and know
that the future you are thinking
of is "NOW". You have to start
thinking and planning logically
from now on.
- You need to start encouraging
yourself to do things that'll
make you big. Forget where you
are now, it doesn't matter, its
where you're going to be when
it’s all said and done that
Forget the fact that you stay in
Dagana or you stay in one shady
place around KSU, and your
fellow mates stay in billionaires
lodge or exquisite lodge (it’s
probably not their money
anyways), it doesn't matter.
What matters is that you are
formulating a plan that will
change your situation when
four years is done and dusted.
- All in all you have to think of
doing only what's necessary to
get that money, not something
people like or what they don't
like, not what brings shame to
you or doesn't bring shame to
you, you don't have to care
what people think about you,
'cause at the end of it all it's you
and only you that matters.
Nobody remembers the
disgusting or not disgusting
things Dangote has done in the
past, because it was necessary
to get him to where he is now,
“the richest man in Africa".

Life is full of change, and that
