Positive ideas on youth future

2017-06-08 06:01

Young people be careful of the thoughts that you entertain. I’m aware that many of you are not employed as compared to those who are employed.

But there is a question I would really like to ask: What are you doing about your situation. Are you sitting at home watching movies from morning until sunset. Do you engage your thoughts in positive issues?

Do you participate in community uplifting activities? Are you engaging with the potential employers or funders for your employment or business? What we are doing today impacts tomorrow.

From our parents, we have inherited nothing but poverty, as they didn’t have much knowledge about asset management and leaving behind a legacy.

What are we going to leave behind for our own children? We need to entertain positive thought and concentrate on the future, in order to break the cycle of poverty.

Playing the blame game will not solve our current challenges.

Young people can’t be selfish; we need to unite. We need to formulate strategies to end the cycle of poverty, crime and abuse. We can only do this if we have the right mind-set, right attitude. Our minds must be pure and stay away from substances that destroy the ability to think. Young person be mindful of your own thoughts. Let’s push for positive thoughts so we can yield positive outcomes in life. This is our country and this is our time. Let’s use it wisely.
