Maximizing Destiny

grenepages_Ibukun Abraham MAXIMIZING TEEN-HOOD_Maximizing DestinyEvery grown up man/woman today was once a teenager. It is an inevitable phase in everyone’s life. It cannot be skipped, jumped or deleted. Teen-hood is an inevitable passage into adulthood, so we sensitize today’s teenagers about the importance of this particular phase of their lives and how to maximise it because it has a whole lot to do with what their future will look like.
Every child within the ages of 12 -19 is a teenager, irrespective of the stature, look or weight. Don’t let your stature make you feel too high or less of yourself.
Dear teenagers, this stage of your life is very crucial to your future because at this stage of your life, your mind becomes more active than before;  you gradually begin to build up your own ideas, views and attitudes about life. Such ideas and views gradually build up a new attitude in you, either good or bad, and they determine your sense choice and decision. Now check out the equation;
Permit me to tell you that the things you expose your mind to through what you see, hear or read determine your new ideas, views and attitude, and they all determine your future.
For instance, if all what you mind to as a teenager now are books, music, videos and television programmes that place too much value on money, sex and fame, don’t be surprised when you find yourself having a strong desire for such things. As a matter of fact, such things become your driving force in life. No wonder there are many youths today who despise hard work and honesty, but will rather do anything to get money in order to impress people. This is because they got exposed to such ungodly lifestyle through what they watch, read or listen to. And now they have developed wrong value system which is now affecting their ways of life.
Mind you, many of those celebrities you watch or read about are fake, as fake as the makeup they wear. They make you feel life is all about money, fame and sex, but meanwhile, deep inside them, they are unfulfilled and unhappy. Therefore, be careful of what you watch, read or listen to. To balance the equation of life, check out this complete formula;
YOUR CHOICES AND DECISIONS = YOUR FUTURE AS A FULLY GROWN ADULT.........................................Equation 3
Here are my questions for you;

  1. What kind of future do you desire for yourself?
  2. What are the things you consistently expose your mind, sight and ears too?
  3. Are the things you watch, read and listen to helping you to build good ideas, views, and attitudes as a teenager?

Ponder deeply on these three questions and be sincere in your answers to them. This stage of your life cannot be skipped, neither can it be repeated. You have just this one life to live, and either you like it or not, we all are products of our yesterday’s choices and decisions. Bear in mind that those choices and decisions were also a result of our ideas, views and attitudes that we developed while growing up as a teenager. Never forget that those ideas, views and attitude were not inborn, they were a result of what we exposed our mind, sight and ears to (maybe videos, real life events, television programmes, novel, discussion, magazine, social media, etc.).
Till next edition, ponder on these things and begin to make every necessary correction before it’s too late. Life is a fertile field; it gives back to you in multiples whatsoever you plant in it. What are you planting into your life now as a teenager?
