Sometimes ignoring all the naysayers is the best thing you can do for yourself. A South African man did this and now his determination has paid off greatly. In a post shared online, @oupapilane explains how no one believed in his business idea.
According to Oupa's post, he had the brilliant idea to place a Lift in a forest which people could climb and look at the view of a beautiful forest area below but not everyone thought that it would work out for him.
"I was told it was not going to work- who will visit a Lift in a forest? I chose not to listen and we went ahead and since we open our doors we have had over 500 000 visitors. Don’t let anyone who has not to build anything tell you it wants work," he wrote proudly.
Locals had this to say about the post:
"Thank you for not listening. This is after my swing. This place is beautiful."
"Went there for the second time this past weekend. it’s beautiful man."
"Thanks for not listening to them."
"Nice work Broer I was there once and I am planning to take my family there this year again."
"I really thought that place was white-owned.....I’m so happy it’s black-owned and it’s the best news ever."
