You know those bloggers, student union governors, artists and numerous highly influential people in college. You know them right? There are a lot of reasons why most of them do not end up successful in life. Most of the reasons are contributed to by you. Yes! You.
I will be discussing five reasons why highly influential people during college life don’t end up influential in life.
1. They talk too much.
If you get to stay around popular people on campus, one major problem they have is talking too much. Most of them say a lot of meaningless nonsense and when people hear this daily , it distant their respect from you, discourages them from having to conceive you in their prospective future plans or intending achievement, the first way you lose partner for the future success which will likely reduce you your future achievement is through talking too much. Someone who talks too much definitely will be prone to lying and nobody wants to build a future with an unfaithful person. Soak that in.
2. Everything about them is fantasy.
You know about this attitude of trying to fake everything and always wanting to be every where? That is another major problem. I was reading an interview with king sunny Ade few years back and the reporter asked : sir, how do you do it that people still want to see you perform every time? He replied saying! My talent, popularity and difference goes everywhere but I do not go everywhere. So they do not get tired of seeing me because they do not see me often. I was dazzled. Most popular student in high school mostly the artists goes everywhere, to some of them : their talent has not even being to where they have been too. Nobody wants to build a future with someone you have has enough of. Trust me!
3. Comparison issues
You do not have to tell people why you think you are better than other celebrities. I believe your works should do that. This is where most college celebrities miss the good life. They are always trying to compete not make a difference. I do not want to employ someone I know or have heard about that the major thing he or she does is compete with others, I want someone who wants to make a difference then he is competitive about it. A competitive life is great, it is awesome but behind that competitive spirit should be a mind that wants to make a difference not just to prove that they are better than others. It does not work that way. People get tired.
4. They earn attention not respect
You should read books like influence and power, why I act the way I do, how success almost ruined my life. Then you will understand that attention does not last but respect does. I will not listen to your sing because you are an attention seeker singer, I will not come to your show because you are an attention seeker master of ceremony,neither will I buy your books because you are an attention seeker author, but I will do all of those because I know you have got stuff in you, because I know you are loaded with intelligence things not because you can drag attention to yourself. Every body can do that. Creating attention is fast and easy but earning respect is hard.
5. The cheap business
Twenty percent of college celebrities end up unsuccessful because of this. I want to be every where so you can get me at any prize you can afford. Let me be sincere with you here, people value commodity with fixed price more than the one with a negotiable prize, and I’m not saying you should not be negotiable but I’m saying you should not be desperate because it makes people feel they can do it without you and that is one of the way you ruin your future success unknowingly.
