Don’t Brag About Certificate; Brag About Progress
Life does not care about what you studied, your certificate or why you studied a particular course in School. Education is important as they say: “it is the vehicle to success”.
But the difference between school and life is that, School teaches lesson and then give a test to determine your next level.
In life, you are given a test that teaches you a life time. No matter, how much certificate you have got, or you want to acquire, make sure you are making a huge progress with the certificate you have acquired.
Of what benefit it is for you to have a good school certificate and start to brag with it without a good steady income, well furnished apartment, and a good ride?
Watch the Nigeria film “CITATION” produced by Kunle Afolayan, and learns more from the scene where mummy Awosika shut down her fellow professor with her achievements [progress] and not just her kpali[certificate].
Don’t think having a Phd or masters or any kind of degree has made you a successful man, there are thousands drop out who are making millions of income every day.
Mind you, having a certificate add to your portfolio or make an organization employ you. But don’t brag with, brag with the progress you have made with it.
“The beginning of bragging with kpali [certificate] with an empty wallets is the beginning of madness” – Boluwatife Odeyale.
When bragging in public among friends, or even in conversation with anyone, be sure to have gone far in life. And don’t forget action speaks louder than your mouth running, so therefore, you don’t need to talk before people knows you are man of value.
