One Inspiring Lesson from an Interesting Super Story

Mothers —they come in different shades, but let’s not confine this address solely to mothers. Let’s broaden our scope to encompass all parents. Recently, I found myself captivated by the remarkable true story of a mother who accomplished what many parents aspire to but often fall short of achieving. Countless parents have tried and failed, yet she succeeded not once but four times. Such a feat demands our attention and offers valuable lessons.

What did this mother do? She charted a deliberate path for her children’s education, guiding them along courses they would study, and they, in turn, embraced these courses with fervor. She envisioned a future where her children became professionals—a certified accountant, a medical doctor, an engineer, and a lawyer. It’s not merely the achievement itself that astounds me, but the fact that each child genuinely embraced their chosen path against all odds.

Allow me to elaborate on the odds they faced so that you may grasp the magnitude of their accomplishments. The accounting professional was steered away from science, told it wasn’t her domain. The medical student had already invested four years studying microbiology before their mother convinced her to start afresh on the arduous path to becoming a doctor. The engineer had ventured down an entirely different educational trajectory for two years before resetting the clock, taking the JAMB exam anew to pursue engineering. Can you fathom it? The accountant is now certified and adores her profession. The doctor, when reflecting on the journey, attests it was the greatest decision she ever made. The engineer beams with contentment, and the lawyer graduated as the top student. Remarkable, isn’t it?

Rather than fretting over the overwhelming odds, she possesses a proven formula—one that works. Those who possess a forward-looking perspective on their legacy would be wise to glean from her wisdom. Many lessons abound, yet one particular inspiring lesson emerges, resounding in my mind: Pay heed to your children and commence planning early.

This remarkable mother didn’t impose just any course upon her children; she attentively observed them, discerning which profession suited each one best. Early on, she instilled in their minds a vision for their future. The child who shared this tale with me recounted how, from as early as the age of seven, all other possibilities were eradicated from her mind. The blueprint of her future career was not a hasty debate preceding the JAMB exam; rather, it was settled before she even reached primary three.

Do you possess an inkling of what might position your children favorably for the future? Why not introduce it to them in their formative years?

Kind Regards,

Adeolu Akinyemi.
