Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has taken to social media to celebrate the New Year with fans as she shares an insightful post to advise them.
The film star just like many Nigerians seems ready to take the right step forward as the year begins.
In a lengthy post shared on Instagram, Tonto said that nothing will change in the New Year if one does not change his or her ways.
She then proceeded to sharing nuggets that will help her fans in the next 12 months of the New Year.
One of her points stated that her fans should not focus on buying the latest phones or gadgets when they do not have investments. In her words: “As the New Year begins, please be wise and strategic. Nothing is going to change because it’s a new year. Forget about the whole “New Year new me” mantra, if you don’t change your ways, you’ll still get the same result.
Here are some nuggets to help you this year. Stop comparing yourself with people and focus on your journey. It’s easy to stay in your corner and feel that the grass is greener at the other side, but the grass is greener where you water it. Focus on your journey, we all have our time. Don’t let people’s success pressurize you into looking for an easy way out.
Stop buying the latest phones, bags and material things when you lack investments. Many young people are caught up in material frivolities that they don’t even realize what matters. iPhone 11 is good, but how the heck do you not have any investment no matter how little bit you’re killing your self over buying an iPhone 11? Don’t try to look rich! Be rich and how do you get rich? By investing wisely!
Have friends with benefit! Yes! Evaluate your friendships and kick out people you’re not also benefiting anything from. I’m not saying you should be a leech, but make friendships with the intentions to grow. Friends that only call you to drink and party? But never talk about how to grow mentally, and get better? Cut them off! You don’t need 1000 friends. One real friend is better than 20 casual friends. Don’t start any relationship with “Let’s see as it goes…” Define any relationship and know what you’re getting into, you can’t waste your time trying to see how it goes. It’s either they want you or not. Finally, put God in everything you do. Remember that everyone won’t like you, everyone won’t help you, everyone won value you, but focus and trust God. Cheers to a better 2020.”
