James has written JAMB four good times yet he didn’t make it. His mom was tired of the situation, she has tried and tried but nothing seem to be working; she employed several lesson teachers just to prepare James but each year his failure seem to be on the increase. He registered again as usual but there was no assurance that it would be any different from the others.

The night before the exam, James and his mom went to visit his uncle; Enock who is a pharmacist, to seek assistance concerning his exam. After narrating everything to Uncle Enock, he looked straight into the eyes of James with much intense and said: "James, what exactly is the problem?" James replied in a low voice "Uncle, I don’t know, I do read but I always fail. No matter what I do, I always fail." Uncle Enock was silent for a while, he sighed and then said "Aunty, I think I have a solution to his problem. There is this new drug I purchased recently. It helps increase your IQ. If James can take it, it will increase his IQ and he will be able to reason very fast and sharp; and pass his JAMB without stress. The only thing is that, the drug lasts for just 5 hours." James and his mom were excited that they have found a solution although they were a bit skeptic about the drug and any possible side-effect. But uncle Enock assured them that it was safe. Besides, they barely had an alternative. He handed over a whitish-powered substance to James and told him to take it few hours before his exam.

The next day, James took the drug and went to write his JAMB examination. After the exam, he returned with a smile on his face expecting to see the result after 24 hours. Result came out and James went to check; "What??? Impossible!!!" exclaimed his mom when she saw the result.. James scored 267. "Oh, the drug worked" exclaimed James. They rushed to Uncle Enock’s house to share the good news. James could not control himself; his mom was just dancing and singing, thanking God and also appreciating Uncle Enock for his help. After the jamboree, uncle Enock sat James and his mom down and said: "James, what you took before going for your exam was not really what I said it was; what you took was 'crushed paracetamol tablet'." James could not believe it; his mom was dumb-founded. H-o-w is th-a-t pos-si-ble? (Stuttered James). "Boy, you had it in you all this while, you were just scared of the unknown, the fear of what people have said about the exam... All you did in there, it was you all the way. You did it yourself and not any drug. You just needed to know that you have what it takes to undertake the task. You needed a confidence." James and his mom were speechless...

If you never knew or no one ever told you; permit me to do justice to that: No matter who you are, where you are, what you have been through, what you or anyone thinks of you or what you think you can and cannot do, I am telling you with all certainty that YOU HAVE GREATNESS WITHIN YOU. 

If you fail to explore in life, it's not because you don't have what it takes or you are not qualified, it's because you fail to activate the greatness deposited within you!!!!

    Greatness, Confidence

    Because you are doing a lot more than others doesn't mean you are getting a lot more done than others.

    You don't get ahead by pulling others down.

    If you wake up without a goal or dream then go back to sleep.

    Tomorrow is a product of today's activity.

    In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first... Change yourself then you can change the world!

    Always be ready and willing to do more than what is expected of you.

    What occupies your thought per time will determine your end in life.

    What seems to be our major problem today is not the unavailability of resources but the confusion of purpose.

    Without expectation, satisfaction/fulfillment can never be attained!

    What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination.

    Defeat never comes to any man until he admits it. Never admit defeat over your dreams and you will never be defeated!!!!!!

    Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world. You too can change the world if you have both.

    A winner is not a person that wins but a person that never gives up..
