I was at a restaurant today, I ordered for a plate of pounded yam and egusi soup. When the meal was served; I complained to the attendant that the meal will not satisfy my appetite. He smiled at me and said, “Sir, if you need more, you can request for another plate”.
I smiled back at him and joked, “I guess your suggestion is a promo (pay for one and get one free)”?.
This encounter reminded me of an important life lesson.
Are you comfortable with what life is serving you right now? If NO, ask for more! More comes at a price.
I leave you with the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Heights by great men reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight but, while their companions slept, they were toiling upward in the night.
Your dreams will come true, if you get to work. The best time to work is NOW!
