FIGHTING (NOT PHYSICAL ASSAULT) IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WINNING, FIGHT TO SURVIVE By Godfrey Emeka

Written by Editor

I have traded in this market competitive perfect that I know right from wrong. In the world, we live, that’s full of competitiveness, I know what winning entails. Winning demands ultimate sacrifice of corruption, winning is a smoke that is polluting our world. Our society could have been a better place to live, a place flourishing in gold and diamond, a society free of egoistic animals. Centuries have passed, yet we are not open to seeing the usual, and differentiate it from unusual. We have seen the truth, but we are ignorant of it. The world has been aligned into known and the unknown. The known is the absolute lie that has pulled us far way back from positive changes, and the truth. The truth is the unknown and the ignorance of mankind.

We all have fighting spirit; the innateness of this spirit is what keeps us alive. This fighting spirit makes man test his limit, although, man has no earthly limit. What man calls his limitation is just a shadow of him. Winning has no sustainability, fighting does. And through winning man becomes vulnerable to evil, catalyst to modernized witchcraft. Fighting makes you a better version of you, postmodern version of you. When fighting, you engage yourself into forming layers of changes.

Bill gate is not who he is because he wants to win, Dangote is not who he is because changes in him was not triggered by winning. Winning is not constant, and neither is it stable.

Fighting keeps you alive, and every blessed day you always think of getting better, and moving away from yesterday/past. We fight to survive in this world of economy crises where winning is irrelevant. I am a living witness to absolute/pure changes constant fighting has brought to my life, and I have gone too far to quit.
