You as a source of inspiration for Africa
If If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent the night with a mosquito.” African proverb
Do not look at your current circumstances because it is not set in stone for eternity. You can make a difference. Here is how.
With 31% of the world’s remaining resources found underneath Africa, you should ask yourself, why the hell aren’t things better? You can go on saying it is corruption that has us not properly utilizing it, or maybe it’s our leader’s incompetency or lack of education or its……….the list goes
But instead of blaming and trying to pinpoint the exact problems, why not work on what you want to happen? Visualize it, write about it, illustrate it, then share it!
You as an Idea Generator
Every great deed ever accomplished was inspired by the idea that they came across in the unlikeliest places. So be the voice that is found in those places. If you are not a creator, then at least you can do this. Share what’s on your mind. Tell us what you would like to see. Every idea has value, no matter how big or small it is. We have seen time and time again the craziest realities that humans are capable of no matter where they are from. So do look into your RICH culture, society, and even into our collective past and be inspired. Be inspired but do not duplicate because more historians will not solve our problem.
The time is now.
The time is now. Africa and its Africans have many things that have started going for it them that no one can take away from them because it is happening everywhere at the same time. Shackles are being broken. Not metal ones but mental ones.
If you are passionate about Africa, I say to you, my friend, start making a difference in your community. Start today. Be the change. You got this.
