How Do I Get From A Low Level To The Top In Life?

Moving From From Nothing To Something
Moving From Nothing To Something
The general belief of  weak people is that; you can’t create something with nothing. And if you can’t create something, you can’t get anything in return. If you are the type that always think ; you want to start up a business, but you don't have any business idea.

You want to be educated, but you have no sponsors, you want to change from one career to another but you don't have the idea. You always want to be the a star in what you do, but you don't know how-to. 

When I was a bit young, the only question I used to ask myself was ''How will I get to the top in life with virtually nothing? How do I get from where I am to where I want to be if there is nothing to build on in the first place? I was the type that Always doubt myself of been educated, because of my background.

If you are my type that always feel like this about your goal in life, I personally recommend this post for you. This is because I will be sharing the secret of how I made it from nothing, with nothing to something.

You Just Have To Start From Nothing
If am to ask you, GEJ (formal President of Nigeria) do you know how he started? Was he a rich manor a son from a wealthy family? Do you know he had no shoe while he was in the elementary school, and he had to trek barefooted to cover a long distance to school? And yet, he was able to make it to the top in life with such a poor background.

The essence of this example is to tell you that, everyone starts from nothing. Rich people, top bloggers, top businessmen, top players, and top investors all these people started from a place where they had nothing. And they were able to make it to the top, that you admire today.

You Success Depends On The Following:

1) Your past achievements: This is what it takes to build your future success. You were once an achiever, you've made it before and you've actually achieved so many great things in the past.  Let me remind you of your your first achievement.

Remember, you are naturally a successful individual by making it to your mother's womb out of  a million of competitors. This was the first achievement you made, while you have nothing. If you can make it to the top, then, without hands, leg, eyes or strength, why not now that you have everything?

Just like you are, everyone starts from a place of nothing. Everything is acquired through time, whether with a rich background or not, whether you have something or nothing now, as long as you take the steps to make it to the top, you will get to where you want to be.

 2) Count your blessing: You have many things, but you never know they are in your disposal because you've never live to appreciate them. You have to change your wrong impression that you have nothing. Am saying this because, every time you say you have nothing, it’s always not true.

If you don’t see what you have today as something, that’s because you’ve always been failing to realize your in built potential. Or let me say you are just taking what you have for granted.

 You’ve developed a mental blindness to the value of what you have. I will only advise you try as much as possible to find out those special potentials that lie in you. Instead of giving unnecessary excuse on why you will not make it. 

If you really want to be sure you have something. Try to visit the hospital to see a patient suffering from a terminal illness with few days to live, visit the dead in the graves, or a jail to see a convicted innocent person sentenced to death. This will encourage you to count your blessing. 

I once felt like I had nothing in life to achieve my goal, but when I visited prison in Zamfara State in 2009, I suddenly changed my mind and I realized that I had so many gifts which am yet to use. Believe me, since then, all the things I have that I perceived as nothing suddenly became something special to me.

You have all these and you think you have nothing?  Your health, your freedom, , your family, your friends, your knowledge, your skill, your abilities, your sense organs and many more. All these are real tools for you to achieve your desired goal.

They are your own assets. Do you know there are many people who wish they have these, yet they don’t?

3) Forget About Physical Assets: Most times, our problem come penetrate us well because we felt we can only deal with such a problem only with physical material. You must accept it, that whatever tangible asset you possess is nothing compare to the intangible ones.

You are a human being who is capable of achieving anything in life. You are dynamic in nature and can create, synthesize thoughts, break down problems, form solutions, build structures and even move mountains. It does not matter if you can't do achieve your aim today, but you can do it, if you are determined.

I was worried on how to acquire a sound education, because I has no sponsor, no money, no connection, no experience and virtually nobody will offer me job. But yet today, am here and have achieved what I wanted to achieve educationally.

 I need to tell you that, all these my worries were absolutely irrelevant in whether I was going to achieve my dreams. The reason was that, I was determined.

4) Be determined: Determinations does it all. Once you are determine to achieve your aim and get to the top without nothing, nobody can stop you. I started this blog with the hope of reaching out to people, get them inspired and tell them they can make it.

This was never without obstacle, even till this moment. Few of the challenges are - its Time consuming, financing, and even traffic's problem. But am not thinking of quitting.

The point is that this is my passion. Is my dream. I knew that as long as I put my whole self into achieving the goal, I would achieve it. That's why I do feel satisfied each time I receive a mail, text or call from my readers to tell me how my post has helped them. Then I see myself as an achiever. You can also do it.

You've been unable to get to the top because you are limiting yourself based on what you have and what you have not. You become a function of your past and turn you to a shadow of your past.

Your current state is not a determinant of who you can be or what you can have. Remember, you have unlimited power in you. Focus on what you want, and you will get it even though you have nothing.


  1. "Determinations does it all. Once you are determine to achieve your aim and get to the top without nothing, nobody can stop you"withn this you can break boundaries.
