“Danger is men roaming our streets” – Chinese Proverb
I came across this ancient chinese proverb recently and after thinking about it for a while I couldnt help but concur.
Come to think of it, every of our problems as individuals, a society and even as a Nation has always been as a result of two things, either Somebody is not doing the right thing or Somebody is doing the wrong thing.
Take a deep thought from the dreadful Boko Haram sect that has become a thorn in our national flesh, to the dilapidated states of our infrastructures, epileptic power supplies, armed and unarmed robbery incidents just name it, every of it is traceable to a “value chain” of individuals or group(s) of individuals who has decided either to not do the right things or do the wrong things.
As a change-agent, I then asked myself the question : What is the way out? Then i came across a quote by the great Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi of India. He said
“Be the Change you want to see in the world”
Putting it in my own words, I came up with two a simple sentence :
“If something is not working around you,Fix IT“
Develop a Fix It mentality today and always remember
“Things will be RIGHT, if we do the RIGHT things” – Seun Ogunmola
Let me end this with a quote from my latest mentor; Leke Alder
