           The Fire and Passion For Success Is Greater Than The 'Success' Itself
Hey fans of the Nitty Wall. I welcome to another episode of 'Life is An Art'.
I decided to share my little story with you on this segment.
I was on a journey yesterday. I went to my Place of Primary Assignment and travelled home the same day. Because of that, I arrived Lagos very late in the night. I live in estate and the 'okada' riders are usually reluctant to ride inside, most especially in the night. Those that are willing charge extra for transportation.
An 'okada'rider stopped by me and I insisted that I pay hundred naira for transport.
"Don't worry. I go carry you home unto say u be corper oo". He said accepting the money I gave him.
On our ride home, he told me about the value he has for corpers.
"I like the uniform...I like am well well". He said matter-of-factly.
I asked him. "Make I borrow u my own? I fit borrow u oo".
"No o. I wan wear my own".
"Yes oo. I dey take lessons for morning. Na for evening I dey do this job. I wan finish school, graduate and wear this uniform. I no say e no easy but I wan wear am".
"That's very good. Have you written WAEC?"
"Ehenn na. I don write WAEC and NECO and the two results good. I wan read law for university".
"Ah. That one na  too much reading oo". I exclaimed.
"To study law, one must do well in Literature, CRS and government and I do well in these subjects. I don dey prepare for university. Na for my state Ebonyi, I wan go school".
"Oh that's good. Have you saved for school?" I asked.
"Since when? I don dey save tey tey".
"Okay o. All the best. Goodnight". I paid and waved at him before entering the gate.
What amazed me about the simple 'okada' rider was his passion and striving attitude toward success. He was willing to work extra hard and remain patient just to become a graduate.
One of my most popular quote goes by, "What the heart conceive and believe, the heart achieves".
Being successful is not only about dreaming but working towards achieving that dream.
The real success is the belief, faith, hard work, fire and passion you put towards being successful. It creates a good success story for you, so that when you tell the world how you became successful, people would strive to follow your footstep and have you as their role model.
 I hope you learn one or two from this story.
 Life is an art. It is very beautiful and lovely. Although, behind those lovely designs are mistakes and errors. Life is not always the way we want it to be but it is our duty to make ourselves happy.
Remember that life is very short to be unhappy. So forgive quickly, love truly and never forget anything that made you smile!!!
