Are U Secure?
My friend published an article on his blog "http://www.deoluakinyemi.com/", titled "Are you Secure?
Below is my comment, so I decided to publish it in my blog.
Being a proponet of employment is not as bad as the author tries to convince us.
I will love to have a deep understanding of the message he is conveying........... so I will ask questions;
1. Does wanting a permanent job over a contractual job reveals the state of mind of an individual with regards to dependence or independence?
2. Are we all created to be enterpreneurs? Do we all have the same giftings?
3. Does wanting a better renumeration, training, etc from a company reveals total dependence on the said company.
We are called to influence (lead) lives, so the pivot in which one makes this action can not be questioned. Let me use an anecdote to potray the message;
Aig CEO, M.D Access Bank PLC decided to take over a bank through cooperate take-over about 14years ago. He initiated the process by working with GTB for about 10 years and all through his working in GTB created various changes which improved the bank- changes that included better welfare package, training, etc. he complained about the system, yet having an independent spirit through his focus to own a bank.His colleagues in GTB could never have guessed his mind as he worked tirelessly for the company and he immediately rose to the position of ED in GTB. The opportunity came when Access Bank declared a public offer and the rest was history. Aig immediately took over Access Bank and he is turning it into a world class bank.
He took a route that is practically perceived as dependence but all the while having an independent spirit.
No one can judge the depth of the mind of any man. Success is an individual opton and perception. There is no general rule, the maker of every human defines his boundaries, and happiness is a choice decided by individuals.................
Below is my definition of success;
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success".
