Walking through life, it all seems like a rat race, from the time of birth, to this very moment, we are always seeking towards something higher than what we previously had or achieved.
We started out crawling as a baby, started walking, for the privileged ones- attended kindergarten, went to primary school, enrolled in secondary school, advanced to tertiary institution and then graduated into the real world. Then after going through all of that, we now venture into the commercial world and ended up ‘JOBLESS’.
The term Jobless in this post does not necessarily mean someone without a Job, but it’s being used as a general term for people that are not exploring close to a quarter of their potentials, you might be employed and be underutilised or not getting the full reward of the work you putting in.
There are a lot of ways to kick you out of the ‘Jobless Zone’, and one of the key ways is motivation. Motivation can be sourced by reading or learning someone’s success story, someone that has passed through similar route you seeking, or just a story of triumph that will make you understand what’s possible when isolated elements are brought together in a ‘functional’ eco-system.
