Nahbi is 74years old and he is a taxi driver of Limozin car in Washinton DC.I admire a couple of things from his life. Longevity and vitality.That push me to ask him a couple of question that prove the following;
1)Contentment is key to longevity. The bible says Godliness with contentment is a great gain.Dont because of the hustle and bustle loose the joy and peace that comes from being contented with life. He said to Me,I Am a fulfilled man. I have 6 Grand children and I came to America 51Year ago. Who could think that a man driving taxi at the age of 74 will be that contented.Guese what? That’s why he’s still physically strong and excited and he will live long without sickness and disease.
2) Passion. The way he spoke to me,I didn’t even know I over paid him until I took another cab that charge me lesser. I was angry with one of my staff recently, he’s everything except for passion. You have to be passionate about something! A life without passion is a dead life. Some people think their promotion in their place of work is stagnated because their boss hate them,No! Some think their business is failing because the economy is bad,No! All over the world,we have unique challenges. You only think things are bad in Nigeria because you reside here.Visit other countries and you will thank God for where you are.Some people even run out of Nigeria for greener pasture. Your green pasture is a function of your passion.Dont live a boring life. Am very excited about everything I do. If I stop being passionate about anything,I quit and start something am more passionate about. In fact I choose the kind of business to do base on my passion.
Well, I pray that whatever I will be doing at the age of 74. I will be healthy and more passionate than nahbi,My morocco friend. Remember,Anything Good I see in others,I tap into.Thats how to get result.Successful people are not your competition but your compass to success. When I see something I desire in anyone,I don’t care what about race,religion,age or social status. I simply go for it till I get it.I pray everyone reading this live long In good Heath in Jesus name.
