Africa needs innovative leaders. There are too much business oriented, one minded, unpatriotic, and old expired brains out there yearning to be presidents, ministers, senators etc. If Africa is to wake up from its long sleep of poverty and un-recognition, then it needs innovative and radical leaders in every sectors and industry.
Nonetheless, our problem is not the leaders because I personally believe that every one is a leader in his or her own little right. As the first-born child in my family, I am a born leader to 2 other strong-headed siblings. In schools, we become automatic leaders when we are a year above and so on. So whether we like it or not, we are already leaders just in different capacity. But as I was saying, we ought to stop looking outwards for some magic to happen and start looking inwards for the magic to start happening.
I still wonder why people do exactly the same thing as their ancestors and expect a different result. Wake up people, wake up because it doesn’t work that way anymore. Same way we don’t send letters anymore thanks to Facebook, emails, twitter etc. is the same way sitting at home from a day-to-day or 9 – 5 job with hands folded in will never make you successful (depending on what you term success).
Stop telling me you want change when you are far from change yourself. Don’t you think it’s funny how people want change, they cry for change, they seek change, they hope for change, they beg for change, they pray for change and for my Christian folks, they’ll speak in tongues for change yet they possess a porous,stagnant and static attitude themselves.
If you and I can’t be change ourselves, then who do we expect to change? political leaders? The economy ? The banking system ? Our parents? Our teachers? Our pastors ? Our friends? Exactly who should start this change thing?
It is about time we as individuals start exhibiting an attitude of change else we’ll be stuck in this everlasting traffic of ‘waiting for a change’
