Pleased to have the founder of Facebook Inc, and one of the most successful people in the world, Mark Zuckerberg in our country Nigeria. It is amaaaazzzing to have such a genius & an inspiring figure at this time where there’s need to invest on potentials,skills and talents.
The need to find our passion and natural abilities, believe in it and in ourselves and take risks necessary for exploring cannot be over-emphasized.
“If you just work on stuff that you like and you’re passionate about, you don’t have to have a master plan with how things will play“~Mark Zuckerberg.
In one of his quotes, he said ” people can really be smart or have skills that are directly applicable, but if they don’t believe in it, then they are not really going to work hard“.
This just explains the need to be confident in yourself and love what you do. If you don’t, you aren’t going to put that extra effort to take you to the extra mile. You aren’t going to have the necessary persistent spirit to move ahead.
life is about risks and exploring new things, ways or ideas. You grow by allowing your imaginations run wide and effectively putting your ideas to use and then taking the plunge. In an October 2011 interview in Palo Alto California, Mark quoted…” In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks”.
I guess it is reasonable and beneficial to emulate some habits of successful people such as Mark, especially for us the youths of today. I did a post on that HERE.
Always remember, if you can think it, it is possible!
