As parents we work hard to buy our children things we never had while growing up…but much better it is for us to TEACH them what we were never taught. It is better to prepare a child than to repair an adult. And so here goes my shot in the dark, wish me luck…?.
My dearest Son, #RonnieTheGreat, today is a special day, a day you’ll someday be celebrating, either by choice or by force…”wink”. All the same, as I have told you before, A GREAT LEADER HAS SPACE ONLY FOR ONE WOMAN! As a young boy who wants to go far in life, and become a leader someday, you should never make women your priority. No man becomes a respectable leader by his ability/skills to seduce and play women. Rather focus on developing your talent and learning new skills that’ll distinguish you as one of the great men in your generation. Dream BIG and aim to be among those who changed the world for the better!.
Young men who discover their purpose early in life seek to score high on the radar of success but purposeless men seek to score high on the number of women they can get. Be different, my child, don’t fight to be the boy who got the girl(s) but fight to make a difference in the world even at your young age. Don’t allow peer pressure, lust and attraction to deceive you, success and influence will seduce more women than your words. Seek to build yourself first and never be afraid to make mistakes. With every mistake that you make you discover more and more about yourself and that’s how you grow. But Paulo Coelho said, “A mistake repeated more than once is no longer a mistake but a decision.”?
Of course, One day you’ll fall in love my Son, and that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone?. When that time comes, you’ll KNOW and don’t let anyone make it small or light to you. But don’t put your life on hold, love never stops anyone from following their dreams. True love releases in you strength, courage to take on the world, goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had. True love is the outpouring of everything good in you. However, life is not a straight line. It might happen that the love you have is not returned for one reason or another – but that does not make you less valuable my child. You’d still be amazing as always. Your worth is found in yourself NOT in another person.
I’ll conclude with these words in the bible, Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love, integrity and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.” “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” Proverbs 22:1
