I am worried!!!

I have noticed a trend and what I see worries me a lot. 

The thing of wanting glory without work. The thing of not waiting to hear the work that goes on behind the scenes but quickly jumping to the finishing line using methods other than putting in the work.

I want to tell you what will happen if you are someone who thinks this way. Over time, people will get tired of you because there is no depth to what you are doing. That is because you really did not take time to build your foundation or depth.

Any builder knows the types of building he wants will depend largely on the foundation. Also, any builder knows that building a foundation can be a lot of work but once, that foundation is done right, it becomes easy to build and scale.

The foundations of law and order have collapsed. What can the righteous do?”

To get a taller and stronger building, your foundation needs to be way stronger than someone who is only looking to build a shed or single room. Your foundation also needs the right kind of quality and durable materials. Other than that, you are just going to suffer the consequences of collapsing your building, and then hurting and killing people in the process. From this analogy, we can deduce that one needs to work on their foundation.

48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.

 49 But the one who hears and does not do them is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the stream broke against it, immediately it fell, and the ruin of that house was great.”

The young person is at an exciting time of his or her life. He or she is at the stage where he can dream. Not only can he dream but he has the energy, enthusiasm and even faith to build the impossible.

Did I fail to mention that all things being equal, he also has the time which is probably the most important resource to make all the mistakes he needs to make before adulthood responsibilities approach.

Do not be surprised, when everyone is calling on you to put in the work. You have the energy and the zeal to see your vision come through.

Young people like you are building their world. Young people like you are building Africa. To get more of you to build, we need you to ask the right questions. What kind of work goes into this thing? How can I also do this??

So instead of jumping to glory please ask how much work you need to put in.

Your ambition is great, your dreams are valid.

However, do not forget the work involved.

Coding can be frustrating, late nights can be painful, apprenticeship is sometimes hard. Online courses too can be boring and then taking another degree or certificate can take many months or years.

In all these , remember that the journey is worth it.
