Growing up in the turbulent Niger-Delta region of Nigeria, the author experienced first-hand the ravages of political and social instabilities. He also saw the limitations of underdevelopment and uninspiring existence arising from illiteracy and ignorance. In this setting, he found education to be an immense tool of individual and societal emancipation and growth. This was greatly influenced by his study of the lives of great people such as Helen Keller, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, and other great spirits who shaped the socioeconomic landscape of their countries.
Owing to lack of financial support for his legal education, he started working as a teacher at the age of 19 - that was how he discovered his passion for teaching. He taught a total of 10 hours most days. The money the author saved during this period was enough to cater for his tuition and living expenses for the first year of his undergraduate study. He continued teaching part-time for the rest of his university days.
During his sophomore year he dreamed of becoming a world-class scholar, to serve as inspiration to millions. Being intellectually curious, his reading was eclectic: He studied not only Law, but also took Liberal Arts courses such as Philosophy, Logic, Psychology, Classics, and History. He also studied tons of self-help books in his search for the secrets of success and excellence. He was nick-named "Aristotle" partly because of his voracious appetite for knowledge and partly because he held tutorial classes for some of his classmates.
Today, he works as a law lecturer and runs a youth foundation where he teaches success principles.
This little pamphlet is written with a view to awaken your spirit.
It is partly the result of the author's 'wandering' in books in search of excellence and partly the result of meditation over life.
It is written to guide you, to reassure you of the dignity in labor, to encourage, to uplift you from life's incessant falls, to revive old and forsaken dreams, to speak life into your being, to reawaken the giant that slumbers in you, to stabilize your faith, to clarify your noble and glorious vision, to help you out of your trials, to spark the solitary dream that sings softly in your heart, to ignite your passion, to give wings to your dreams, to thrust you into the fire of motivation, and to help you triumph in life's turbulent journeys.
This pamphlet is written for great spirits tabernacled in flesh; it is written for every individual who truly wants to transmute his life from trials to triumphs; from bad to good; from vice to virtue; from rags to riches; from a nobody to a somebody; from grass to grace.
It is written in realization of the fact that we owe a debt to make life easier for others. It is written for YOU with great love and respect to live a truly amazing life that is beyond limitations.
