Many people today are wallowing in poverty not because they never had the opportunity to become rich or wealthy, but because they misused the opportunities that had earlier in their life. In life, they say that opportunity come but once, but I can tell you categorically that many people have had opportunities to become rich multiple times but they never made use of those opportunities that came there way.
If you want to make it in life and enjoy your old age, the first thing you must stop is flaunting. Most young people today cannot do without flaunting their little wealth. When they flaunt, they will forget that their is tomorrow. I know some celebrities, footballers and so many people that were extremely rich in the past, but today they are poor to the extent that they can't even feed themselves. So young people must learn save, instead of them to be flaunting wealth.
Then the next is investment. Young people must learn to invest. So many rich men and women today have no investment to boast of but they have multiples of cars. Let me state it categorically here, if you have 10 cars but you don't have a house of your own, I tell you, you are a failure and a disgrace. Car is not an investment but a liability. As a man or a woman, once money enters your hand, the first thing you need to do is to invest. Buy landed properties, shares and other things that will yeilded something for you in the future instead not buying cars and drinking away your future.
Then the next thing you must know about is the kind of friends you keep. They say, show me your friends and I will tell you who you are. If your friends don't make you, they definitely will break you. If you are a man and you have friends that always take you to joints where you will drink beer and eat Isi Ewu and Nkwobi, and yet you don't have a single investment to boast of, you are finished. The best thing for you to do is to leave such friends and run for your life because the disaster that awaits you in the future will hit you like a time bomb.
Then the last but not the least, is women. Women can destroy a man's life more than HIV and AIDS. Any man that loves women too much, his downfall is near. If you are man and the only thing you do is to hang around with different ladies once money enters your hand, am really sorry for you because destruction awaits you.
I made this article to notify people, most especially men, the need for them to invest and secured their future and make their own future bright.
