Recently, it happened that I had to obtain a form for a program.
On the form, there is a part for the University of Ibadan official stamp and signature.
And seriously, I wasn’t really pleased with that because of the stress I’d pass through to get that done.
I thought I could probably get it stamped from my Head of Department but it was a No.
Instead, I had to go to the registrar office and get the form stamped.
It was like a mission impossible.
How would I probably go to the the registrar office?. To me, it was just like going to meet the Vice Chancellor and I looked at how I would probably face him.
I kept thinking of forfeiting the application but I encouraged myself in the Lord to give it a try. 🤪
Therefore, I took the courage and matched down to the building of the registrar office.
I got in front of the official building of the registrar and talked with the security and he directed me into a room.
Lo and behold, I entered and met a man that directed me to another woman. Wonderful!!
I met the secretary to the registrar and she asked me to write a letter directing it to the registrar.
She asked me to sit and I comfortably sat on a lovely chair like that(smiles)
As I write the letter, I tried as much as possible to be simple and correct. I wouldn’t want to make a mistake in the letter.
Letter to the registrar!!!
You get that? 😄😄
After that, the secretary directed me to the general office where I met a woman and two men.
I was nervous and do not know what to expect from them.
Contrary to my thoughts, I was welcomed warmly and asked to come back the following day.
It was as if I shouldn’t even leave the office again.
The following day came and I joyfully matched to the place.
This time with no fear or agitation whatsoever.
I got to the office and greeted them with enthusiasm.
In fact, I had to sit for about 15 minutes while one of them went down to photocopy my form as there wasn’t light.
At that point, I felt so special.
The other man asked me a lot of questions and I flowed along so well.
I got out of the office and I thought so deep.
Do you know I wouldn’t have made any attempt of getting the form stamped simply because I thought the registrar is just someone I can’t easily access whereas it is not so.
I could have probably given in to the fears inside and around me.
But I tried to overcome my fears and took the bold step and it came out well.
Of course, the registrar is an higher authority over me but that doesn’t make me anything inferior.
I have the right of a human as well.
Some of the major causes of setback in life is “the fear of people and looking down on yourself while overrating someone else”
Whereas, you are just human and that person is.
You look at someone in a higher position and you felt inferior.
You see someone having more material things and you concluded you’re destined to be a pauper?
That celebrity you look up to is someone like you having blood flowing through his/her vein.
He/She started one day by pushing his/her fears aside and that’s why you could possibly look up to that particular person today and wish to be like him/her.
Daily, I’ve always learnt to overcome my fears.
There’s nothing I can’t achieve.
To really get to where you want to, you need to live fearlessly.
Brace up and face your fears.
Never be intimidated.
When you need to speak out, do.
When you need to take action, do.
When you need to press forward, do.
You don’t need to look at the position you are.
You don’t need to look at how far people around you are going.
You don’t have to look at the challenges and barriers around.
Love to see you making waves.
Much love from me to you.
