So many people woke up this morning and searched Google for motivational messages to keep them going. My friend, the biggest motivation in our lives today is John Mahama-Nana Akufo Addo
Whether you like Nana Addo or not, he is a living testimony that, if you keep knocking, a door shall open. If at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up. Keep trying. In this life, our greatest weakness lies in not having the courage to try again. The most certain way to succeed is to always try just one more time. There is an opportunity for every willing heart and light at the end of the tunnel.
So many people wonder what John Mahama is looking for in this life. My answer to them is very simple. “You are a hypocrite.” Are you not the same person who tells yourself, your kids and friends that when you fall rise again? So why doesn’t that apply to John Mahama? So everybody in this life must rise up when they fall except John Mahama?.
You see, there is nothing wrong with falling or not being able to achieve set goals. Not having the courage to rise back up when you fall, dust off the dirt and try again, that is a disgrace.
There can’t be any “never give up” quote or motivational message on the internet better and more practical than what Akufo Addo exhibited when he decided that he wanted to become president of Ghana. He put up a good fight and kept the momentum till he was declared president. Hero!!!
Do you know why Rawlings is still loved by many irrespective of what people say he did? It is because he staged a coup and failed, was arrested and about to be executed, came out of jail and staged another coup and was successful. Handed over power to Liman, came back and staged another coup and won again, won two straight elections and handed over power to Kuffour. Yeah!!! That’s what men do.
Kuffour lost the 1996 election but never gave up. He came back in 2000 and won and went ahead to win two elections. Prof. Atta-Mills lost 2 times and won on his 3rd attempt. Nana Addo contested Kuffour On 20 April 1996 and lost, came back in 2007 and won the presidential candidacy, lost the general election, was reelected as flagbearer, lost again in 2012, went to court and lost but he didn’t give up. He came back in 2016 and won with the biggest margin in the history of the 4th republic. Today those who asked him to give up call him a hero.
Some Ghanaians will make fun and even insult you. But deep down their hearts, they love people who are strong and never give up on their dreams. You may not like their policies and leadership style, but if it is “never give up” motivational messages you are looking for, don’t go to Google, just look at Akufo Addo and John Mahama. There is a lot of “enjoyment” at the presidency. They will get there or die trying .
Rise, keep moving, be courageous, never give up. Don’t be distracted by pessimistic people. No miracle awaits you. It is your hard work that shall pay off one day.
