We are all in the middle, so ?

It was ome of my artisans that called my attention to the fact that  Monday, the first day of the week is at hand. I had promised that we will be back to our school of Life this Monday. And,  so when he made the statement that whatever position you are " " , We are all in the middle". The idea struck me and I said whao!.. He actually called my attention to it that it was time to write as I had promised and I told him, you have just given me a topic to dwell on. And,  there we go.

He was of the view that if you built a  two storey building, there are people with five storey;you will see people with skyscraper. You will see those who built just one room and then, those who just used container to serve as their abode,yet we are all in the middle...

Going forward , what type of car will you use that you have not seen anyone using the type or the one that is better. We are all in the middle.. How much does Dangote worth in billions of dollars that we are all referring him as a big man and billionaire. In the circle of Ellon Musk with over 300 billion USD or Jeff  Bezos worth 200 billion dollars, Dangote with just 15 biĺion USD is an errand boy. So, this is just reinforcing the fact that we are all in the middle. No one is greater. A Yoruba adage captures it succinctly when it says " There is no rich man in the bathroom. We are all going to use sponge. It is the soap  that will be different". So, what is the fuzz?. No one parrot is bigger than  the other,except the one that climbs the ridges . So, lower your shoulder and cut off the ego. We are all equal. Just little little differences . The real deal is that God is the greatest. God is the ultimate. No one or nothing can be bigger than God..So, no matter how big your asset is  or whatever level of success you might have attained in life, you will meet some people in the front and those in the front will also meet some people in the front..it is a cycle...Again,i say cut off the ego, afterall we are all in the middle.

Tomorrow is another day.
