Many times, when we don’t have the means to achieve a dream, we tend to let go, especially when it looks like all odds are against us.

Media personality and entrepreneur, Shade Ladipo in a series of tweets explained that not giving up is the only way to make it.

According to her, she didn’t have any advantage growing up, but she didn’t let it define her. Today, her hard work is paying off as she is making a headway in her career.

She wrote,

Early this year I spoke to my friend @_deyemi & he said Shade produce your own movie….I thought how? Which audacity, who am I? Well I did I am co-producing my 1st movie….with all warts & lack of experience plus cray schedule I did Don’t ever limit yourself, just do it

Will it be the best movie ever produceth eeer probably not but I’ve started & the odds will ever be in my Favour bcos I’ve begun.

Every single thing I’ve dreamt of doing in my lifetime I WILL DO not bcos I have the most influence or money but bcos I’m ready to work

My life isn’t perfect but I’m loving & accepting the imperfections & that makes it perfectly perfect plus Oluwa is involved BIGLY

Speak words into existence….Write down your dreams….Meditate on them day in day out #ItWorksForMe

I didn’t grow up with any advantage, in fact, I’ve had the most horrible things happen in my lifetime but I’ve never allowed them to define me.

It is possible to Make money, Do Good, Make Change, Be Happy and Have Integrity. The minute you think you can’t, then you can’t There’s nothing stopping you but YOU….

There’s nothing stopping you but YOU….

I’m truly grateful for all the Family & Friends who inspire & support me, without them I would be wallowing in self-pity.

Surround yourself with Positivity & people who push you & criticize you daily Don’t allow Yes-Friends be around you…you need to be pushed.

Don’t focus on Money pls I beg you lose your focus from Money, that’s the biggest mistake you can make if you ever want to be successful.

Don’t get lost in the Social media flash & forget to work on your Internal growth…. Measure your growth against yourself….

Measure your growth against yourself….Measure your growth against yourself….

Measure your growth against yourself….

Invest in yourself…real investment, not material things…I’m not saying don’t love the good things but they mustn’t rule your life

In all, Be Grateful There’s nothing as amazing as being grateful. I remember wanting to go school in the US so bad over 15yrs ago.

My SAT & TOEFL scores were lit, I got a cross-cultural scholarship everything was set but my parents couldn’t afford the tuition and I had to settle for the University of Lagos.

Fast forward and I am thankful because I doubt I would be the person of character I am today if I had ended up in the University of Minnesota like I wanted I was hurt & felt betrayed by God at that time but I thank God it didn’t work that way.

Now I am studying at the University of San Diego fully sponsored by the US State Department & I’m not even paying for food.

Sometimes you have to let Go and let God…Work hard but don’t be fooled & think your hard work will be the end of all

The hard work will prepare you for the great things ahead but Gods plan is totally different from yours.

I’m grateful & entirely blessed.
