Some people are more successful than others because they choose to be, hardworking, focused, consistent, disciplined and dedicated to what they know how to do best.
No longer do people depend on just certificates. Skills have opened doors that educational qualifications will never be able to open.
An individual will shine in their greatest area of strength and passion if they harness it, and continue to struggle in their weak areas.
If you’ve got something you enjoy doing, find a way to develop it and build it to the point it starts to pay you. Below are those who have used Instagram to showcase what they love to do, and one thing that is consistent with all of them is that they chased their passions with everything and eventually broke through.
”I like the feature because it gives me a distinct look and voice in my videos, thereby making them to be unique. I had been using the feature on Snapchat but when I learnt about Instagram and that the feature was also available on it, I didn’t think twice before adopting it for my skits. And so far, the feedback from people has been good. People like the way I use the filter in my videos” he said.
On the skit that made him popular he disclosed:
”It was the one I made about people who live on Lagos Island — on how they are too afraid of small potholes on the roads. I ranted that you would see them driving their cars too delicately and swerving at the sight of every small pothole and almost causing accident in some instances. I told them in the skit to go to Lagos Mainland, where there are many big potholes on the roads. If they saw how motorists on the Mainland drove over large potholes, I told those on the Island that they wouldn’t be swerving anyhow at the sight of small potholes”.
