important management lessons from 500 Naira

1. It happened some time ago, I was in an audience listening to a motivational speaker. The speaker got out his wallet & pulled out a 500 Naira note. Holding it up, he asked, “Who wants this 500 Naira note?”

Lots of hands went up. Including mine. A slow chorus began to build as people began to chant “I want it!” “I want it!!” “I want it!!!”.

I began to wonder who the lucky one would be, who the speaker would choose. And I also secretly wondered why he would simply give away 500 Naira. Even as the shouts of “I want it” grew louder, I noticed a young lady running down the aisle.

She ran up onto the stage, went up to the speaker, and grabbed the five 500 naira note from his hand.

“Well done, young lady,” said the speaker into the microphone.

The speaker simply said “Most of us just sit and wait for good things to happen. That’s of no use. You’ve got to make things happen. Make a move”

“Simply thinking about doing something is of no use and not good enough”. Our lives are like that.

We all see opportunities around us. We all want the good things. But the problem is we don’t take action.
