Hey guys, been a while. I heard something from a colleague today that really inspired me and so I decided not to be selfish, I put it together and here we are… I hope you enjoy.
The on air personality Ikponmwosa Osakioduwa popularly known as IK battled with dyslexia while growing up, he found it difficult to read and concentrate in the classroom. His father then started to coach him at home for about 3 hours every day which helped to improve his performance at school. IK had always wanted to be an OAP and in fact own his own radio station so he decided to work with one of the top radio stations in Lagos after school.
When he got to the radio station, the head of presentation said to him repeatedly“I don’t want to say you are not good” and it baffled IK because it looked to him like the man had already said that he wasn’t good enough,and the head then said to him “you might do well outside Lagos” but guess what happened, IK continued to go to that radio station every day for three months because he knew what he wanted to achieve and he did not allow one person’s pessimistic opinion about him stop him from achieving his dream and today, IK is a force to reckon with in the world of Entertainment.
IK was persistent and he believed in himself, he did not encounter success but he made a decision to be successful.
I trust we have been inspired by this short story, always believe in what you can do and be persistent.
