What are you looking for?

I love quotes, popular and meaningful ones and I always wish I could write quotes that will make sense and be used all around the world. It’s a way for one’s name to continue to live through generations even when one is long gone. With this said, I release my first quote publicly.

‘When you don’t know what you are looking for, even when you see it or it sees you, you will never recognize it and you will keep searching’.
My mum called me into her room sometime ago and asked me to look for a particular cloth, she described it but I just couldn’t picture it in my mind. So many cloths she had fitted the description and at that point, I knew that I would never find the cloth even if I saw it. So I showed her everything that fitted the description she gave me but none passed the test so I just pretended to continue searching, even looking in irrelevant places but deep inside of me, I knew that the only person that could find it was my mum.

The cloth was later found by my mum and guess what, it was among those I brought out earlier for her. I had seen it but I didn’t know I had because my mind just couldn’t capture it.

A wise man once said, ‘if you don’t have an idea of your destination, how do you know when you have arrived?’ many of us have no clear vision of what we want or where we are going to. We just have vague descriptions and unrealistic expectations and therefore, golden opportunities pass by us times without number and we later cry out saying, ‘life is not fair’.

Most people in this life are only happy when they have what they want. Therefore readers, if you want to have what you want, the first step is to know it. Have a crystal clear description of it and the next is to have a realistic plan on how to get it or if it’s a destination, have a plan on how to get there having first the destination in mind and the rest is just like following a road map!
