Here is a summarized version of Hichilema’s talk when some citizens visited him
Today I want divert from politics and speak as a businessman. The desire of every young man or woman is to be successful in life. So today I want to share the following 10 things which can help you my dear Zambian Youths in your journey through life.
1. LITTLE THINGS MATTER
If you can do small things right then you can also manage big thing. Everyday you wake up start with a PRAYER, even when you don’t feel like praying just say ‘Thank you Lord for this day in Jesus Name.’ After this clean your teeth and take a bath, when your body is clean it gives you extra confidence. So number one thing always complete small tasks in the morning.
2. FIND SOMEONE TO HELP YOU
You can’t make it in life alone, you need friends or companionships that is helpful. So if you want to succeed choose Friends who are building and helping you.
3. RESPECT EVERYONE
In my journey through life I worked with people of different color, race and tribe and together we have achieved so much. Don’t Judge people by their tribe or race because every person has a God given potential that you can benefit from.
4. KEEP MOVING FORWARD
You need to accept that Life is not always perfect so each time you fall just pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
5. DON’T BE AFRAID TO FAIL
Sometimes life can test you beyond what you can handle but remember what can’t kill you can only make you stronger. Personally, it is the toughest problems in life that made me a strong person so I encourage you that don’t be afraid of failure coz it only makes you better
6. TAKE THE RISK
A coward hyena lives longer but poorer. If you want to succeed in life don’t be afraid to make risky investments.
7. FACE YOUR ENEMIES HEAD ON
Not everyone wants you to succeed in life others Will just hate you for no reason but don’t fear such people. Always face your enemies Head on and fight back, remember bullies are the worst cowards.
8. BE CALM IN THE DARKEST HOUR
Remember it’s darkest before Dawn. In the most trying moment of your life always remain calm and composed but at the same time step up and be at your best. Remember Joy comes in the morning.
9. NEVER LOSE HOPE
In my journey through life I have seen the power of hope. Mandela never lost hope, Michael Sata never lost hope. So I say to you today never lose Hope, keep up the faith.
10. NEVER GIVE UP
I started my life in the village as a cattle Herder and walking long distances to school on barefoot. Some of you today say HH is very rich but I say am a poor man who never gave up.
Whatever you do never give up! There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Let me also take this opportunity to wish all the women a HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY God bless you and God bless our beloved country Zambia.
