If you tell some people to take their time to build wealth and invest for a decent life, they will say you are just talking because you don’t want to spend money or you don’t even have money. They will point at others who are spending anyhow they like and tell you that those people don’t have two heads.
Ignorance at work! It is easy to be rich but difficult to remain rich. One of the saddest episodes of life is for you to be rich today and go broke in few years after living large. Such a person will be miserable. I won’t tell anyone not to enjoy life, but I will say make sure that your enjoyment can last. Simple!
Someone who goes by the identity Mushy shared a story about a “big boy” we should learn from:
There was this wealthy politician in Bayelsa State who celebrated One Billion Naira during the reign of late Governor Alamesiegha a.k.a ALAMCO.
I was a batch A corper between 2004/2005, leaving with my uncle in Kpansia area of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. He told me to dress up for a club, that a cousin of the then governor is celebrating N1billion.
I was confused initially but, my people, it was a reality when I got there and saw some of our corper babes in club arena. Behold! the celebration was that the politician had hit is first One Billion Naira.
Those who are familiar with Bayelsa State knows the man slapped GEJ when he was the deputy governor, who later ran to S.A. when ALAMCO was impeached.
Recently, I escorted a friend to his house in Amassoma close to Niger Delta University… take it or leave, the same wealthy guy is broke. When I got to Yenagoa and was trying to talk about it with my uncle’s friends where we’re relaxing, a guy just asked me to forget the talk, saying these days the man sometimes borrow money to fuel his car.
Marvellous! Marvellous!! One Billion Naira? How did he waste all that money?
