How courage, hope made me: A practical example.

Hope pays off, “A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.”

Mary-Anne-Radmacher-Courage

It was 6 years ago when my mother left me; till now I can never tell where she went. I remember one morning when I was awoken by a very loud voice. I had never heard a man cry before; at first I thought it was an animal entombed in a hunter’s trap in our neighbourhood. I walked downstairs in my under wear to see to find out what the problem was only my Father facing against the wall like there was a dressing mirror.

The first thing I noticed was the ash tray, there must have been like a hundred cigarettes in there and just next to it lay a bottle of whisky whose brand I don’t still remember and the TV was on as well. Speechless as I was, my pop turned to me in my underwear and said “your mother is gone, and she’s never coming back.” What was I supposed to ask or add? I ran back to my bed room and locked it up.

A year ago, Jack, my dog, was returned by a Virtuous Samaritan, Pius after he read the posters I had made as one of the labours I had in place to find him. I therefore assumed she, my Mother, would return or be brought back home just like it happened with the dog but I was unsettled, that wasn’t the case.

My father married another woman a while later who technically became my step mother but practically was my worst nightmare. She did every sort of bad thing you can imagine under the surface of the earth but since my father wouldn’t listen even when I reported them to him, I decided to modestly endure; something like suck it up.

It was not so long until my “step mother” realized that I had gotten too smart for her trickery so with time, she slowly started transforming from the monster that she was to the most supporting woman that my mother would have been.

I realized that reporting her constantly was not changing a thing so I simply had to work with her. By this tactic, I managed to soften her solid heart to a butter state. She contributed the first a hundred thousand shillings that I used to start my chicken farm from which I got my tuition fees even as I write.

I couldn’t believe that one could make their worst enemy become one of their most supportive friends in life; I practically made it happen. I became my own example in life. I was pleased with the increasing transformation of the situation that started remodelling the mood from stable to successful, from selling a tray of eggs to 13, 20, 100 respectively.

This however wasn’t the case with those that were closely related to my step mother so they invoked what the elders in my clan called witchcraft that remoulded the mood from stable to negative. This was the most trying moment of my life.

What would you do if you were me? I felt so useless and hopeless at that time. It was at that time that I visions of all the things that I had lost prevailed; the death of mother, my favourite cousin Kenneth with whom I went to school, with whom I sang American rap rhymes, with whom I saw the world, with whom I had developed a bond like we had survived the titanic. This was the left thing that I had left with; my poultry farm from where I had buried 200 broilers and 74 layers.

I was be-left, would I fight a war I had no idea about or would I sit and wait for the death that attacked my farm to attack me too.

Like any other believer in times of helplessness and hopelessness, I had to place my faith in a seemingly non-existent super natural entity called God hoping that somehow things would turn out good. It was with this courage that I proved to myself and to everyone that monitored the escapade that on every occasion one door closes, possibly another opens so crying and grieving over the closed one doesn’t make sense like embracing the newly opened one.

I decided to start over; by any standards I was considered an entrepreneur so backing off would be letting the young revolution of entrepreneurs down.  It was the moment that my life would never forget. With the bantam chicken I had been left, I fake like nothing had happened and moved on and believe me, whatever test this was; I passed it without watching back. I remembered this quote “A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.”  Elbert Hubbard.

Envisage me fighting back, would it bring back the tremendous success that I came across, or would it make me feel any better or satisfied with the quench of revenge? It wouldn’t; how different would I be from them if I carried a machete and chopped their plantations down? How different would I be if I hit back at them?

My courage and diligence were the only counter reaction tools or mechanisms that I had at my disposal and I knew that “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”

I came from rearing just chicken to Dairy Farming and somehow managed to turn my used to be haters into partners in business and in work. It was a realisation that discovered recently that even your enemies could eventually become your key allies in life. This is certainly due to different but somewhat compatible interests.

Here’s is how I managed to overcome turn negativity into opportunity: a few tips.

  • I didn’t have negative thoughts of things I couldn’t control. Instead I invested my energy in the positive present moment.
  • I viewed envy as a waste of time. I already had all you needed.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
  •  I realized that life is a school and I was there to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  • Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.

Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy.

Always know that “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” ~ Thomas Jefferson.
