The road to success is not always an easy one especially for many South Africans who live in the direst circumstances. A young man recently helped other people from poor backgrounds see that where there is a will to succeed there is definitely a way to succeed.
Taking to Facebook Maake Shadrack shared an inspirational post about how he had slept on the floor as a student working hard to obtain a qualification that would catapult him from his poor circumstances to a better life.
"*2 years of sleeping on the floor at 25 Mathivha Street, Mankweng Zone 1, and one year of being a squatter on-campus taught me to never give up in life and continue enduring even when there's no sign of change.
"However, even if you pray day and night if you don't work smart and diligently...You will never move to the next layer."
South Africans were left feeling super inspired and both congratulated and commended him in the comment section.
Mokgadi Mamaregane said:
"At times I need motivations like this, so when you felt like giving up, how did u pick yourself up? when everything was against u?"
Tebogo Phakedi said:
"So inspiring. It's not about falling. It's about standing up."
In more inspiring Briefly.co.za news, a woman, Bunmi Oyebamiji-Ojo, was greatly affected by the global coronavirus pandemic that she became a roadside food seller. Humangle reports that the 48-year-old woman lost her job as her place of employment downsized due to the lockdown.
All that the primary-school-leaver knew about Covid-19 were things she had heard from conversations around her. When she was called at work about the need to let her go, Bunmi’s supervisor promised her the disengagement would only last for a while.
After the lockdown was eased, the woman’s hope of returning to work was dashed as no call came. Before she lost her job, she was managing a R1100 salary with her son who is an undergraduate at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho.
