What you can do, what you can offer is what people are after, give it a name, attach a value, place a price tag in all fairness, sell it, sell it to as many people as you reach but it is not a tango neither is it a competition as you cant fool all of the people all the time…just play the game in the safest and fairest mode, catch fun, play, dance, crack jokes, say I AMSORRY, say please, say excuse me for a moment, share a drink, make a toast, do business, learn, support, reciprocate respect and honor, show humility, talkabout it if you can, listen more…its all going to make your life count to you and someone out there when you socialize, synergize and step in the game…that game is life…it means so much when we honestly live it that way too. 9
  13. 13. YOUTH BLISS Succeed through service –E verything you achieve will make real sense and fulfilling whenyou consider humanity by committing to the society. One thing you will surely be forever remembered for – your service tohumanity. When you look out of your window, you will see who to serve – some youth want to go to school but they got no sponsor; some youth want to eat but they have no food; some are sick but no drugs; some youth want to see a movie but got no TV. The youth doctor can help the youth patient. The rich youth can help the poor youth…all in the quest to help…Consider the two sides of life The society calls for a country with responsible youth who are driven by values and not what theycan eat now. Patriotism beckons on you as a viable YOUTH; will you display your citizenship? That is an idea of what you can feel and commit towards. Success is not the key to happinessrather happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will think of the people, the country and the many good you can make out of it. You can only be successful whenyou serve with a heart as genuine as that of Fela Durotoye, Paul Adefarasin, TY Bello and the likes. 10
