Hey reader! It’s mid-week already and the weekend is in sight. So how’s it been? Shh! Before you answer, I want you to go through this awesome story a reader shared with me. I really enjoyed it and I hope you do.
Inspired by ‘a push’.
A man had one very beautiful daughter.
When the daughter was ready for
marriage, the father sent news around
town that all the eligible young men
should come to compete in a test which
would determine who was fit to marry
On that day, all was set, all the able-
bodied young men came out. Some
came with paper and biro and others
with cutlasses and swords.
The rich man took them to his
swimming pool and addressed the men:
“Any of you who can swim from one
end of this swimming pool to the other
would marry my daughter.
In addition, I‘ll give him 15 million
dollars, a car and a house so they can
start life well. I shall be waiting to meet
my son-in-law at the other end. Good
As the young men, all very excited at
the prospect of winning, started taking
off their shirts, a helicopter came over
the pool and dropped alligators and
crocodiles into the pool. Immediately,
all the men turned back and started
wearing their shirts again. Disappointed,
some of them said, ”That’s crazy, let’s
see who would marry that girl, no one
All of a sudden, they heard a splash in
the pool. Everybody watched in
amazement as one gentleman waddled
across, expertly avoiding the alligators
Finally, he made it to the other side.
The rich man could not believe it. He
asked the young man to name anything
he wanted but the man was still panting
Finally, he got back to his senses and
made a request saying, ”SHOW ME THE
PERSON WHO PUSHED ME INSIDE THIS
You don’t know what you are capable of
doing until you try or in some cases PUSHED!!.
Those seeking to push you into the
jaws of alligators and crocodiles may
have helped you to reach your promised
Sometimes it takes going through the
bad moments to bring out the BEST in
Trials are raw materials for Triumphant
Testimonies… The push might take
different dimensions: some people
needed to be sacked before realizing
their potentials and reaching their goals
I PRAY YOU WILL GET A DIVINELY
INSPIRED PUSH in your life.
It’s not over until you win…
Keep on pushing. Your future and whatever you do in life, depends on you. Start now! Do not relent!
