GIVING UP? NOT AN OPTION!

One of my passions in life is radio broadcasting. I have always sought for opportunities to really explore this aspect of my professional life. I wanted an opportunity to be soooooooo freeeeee to make an impact with the spoken word.

My passion therefore sent me on a quest to apply for volunteering in media houses. I thought that since I’m applying for volunteering, naturally I would encounter no challenge whatsoever.

I didn’t imagine any possibility of challenges or disappointments or denials; cos I had the mindset that I would be given the opportunity to learn and unwind my potentials. I turned my applications to some radio firms and was flatly refused on grounds I wouldn’t even consider as an excuse.

Believe me; I began to meander in the precipice of despondence. Simply put, I was discouraged! I had planned so much to receive their approval; I went extra miles to practice presentations so as to gain their approval.

I almost didn’t want to try anymore. But I didn’t; yea you heard that right I did not give up; the realization of my dream won’t just let me give up. The mere thought that I would one day speak to millions of listeners and affect their lives kept me going. And so I kept knocking at doors, as one of my mentors would tell me.

Eventually, a door opened for me. Yea yea. I had the opportunity to be an intern in a media in a TV house which provided a lot of opportunities.

Do you mind ignoring the turn downs and disappointments; they will surely come, sometimes knocking you off balance. Keep in mind that they are building blocks to your greatness in that dream you are pursuing.

Keep the dream alive, keep the hope alive, keep knocking, and keep pushing until you achieve that beautiful dream of yours. Show me a great man; and I will show you man that has passed through the fire of challenges; and at the end, comes out so pure and priceless.

DON’T GIVE UP, YOU WILL SOON HIT THE JACKPOT!
