So things have been generally difficult for a lot of people in 2016. The exchange rate went to hell and is still currently in the clutches of Satan.- since we always blame him for all things bad anyway. Many things we use in Nigeria are often imported so this affected us in so many ways. It made many of us poorer- if you had N500 million at N200 and N50o million at N485 your purchasing power has more than halved.
Back to the point – many of us are so caught up in our struggles that we fail to even just stop sometimes and appreciate what is going on around us. In the midst of all this madness, people are getting creative. Some people are making money, some others are setting the foundation for their future etc. What have you been doing?
I came across a satchet of powdered egg and I just sat and though to myself – this thing is made in Nigeria. If the price is the same with or cheaper than regular egg, can you imagine the market for it? People without electricity can buy it and keep it, people without refrigerator can buy it instead of fresh eggs and not run the risk of the egg turning into a chicken or just going off. Also people who cannot quite afford a whole egg can use it multiple times after it has been opened. You see how I listed some of the reasons the product will sell?
I have gotten to the point where I am tired of hearing myself complain. So I have decided not to complain anymore and simply enjoy my life and look closely for opportunities as easily as I find problems to complain about.
I am making a decision to be positive. What is your current situation and attitude?
