Growing up as a child I was told that if I read and study hard then I could become someone successful in the future. Without much argument I went to school, even during the days that I felt like sleeping home my mom would scold me....well it was not an option for me to stay home except I was ill of course. Then most times when I saw people who are successful in their various fields of work, I felt motivated to study hard to make my parents proud. I graduated high school, moved to college there I began to get different interesting revelations...."it is not about the certificate of what you studied". Well it may seem strange to you reading as I do not know if it is the same everywhere but in this world where am from..... **no connection, no job**. A world where if you do not know the managing director of the company or the head of HR then you are not getting hired irrespective of if you have a first class or a second class. <center><img src="https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmUVQo3cuThVJeMKDN3TqPQXVamnqmfF2XKfmvdEQsM5Ut/dark-1869803_1280.jpg "></center><center>Image by <a href="https://pixabay.com/users/pexels-2286921/">pexels</a> at <a href="https://pixabay.com/photos/dark-face-girl-person-woman-sad-1869803/">pixabay.com</a></center> We are now in a world where a graduate have to worry about getting a job after fulfilling all the requirements of going through school. A world where colleagues who do not even know how to write a Cv or do not have as much qualifications as you do get the upper hand in everything because **"his/her father knows someone in a high position while your parents do not**". --- ***Then why do we keep disturbing ourselves??*** --- # Who is to blame? <br> **Do I blame my parents for not having friends or connections in high places?** **Do I blame the government for doing nothing to better the country they swore to make a better place?** **Or do I blame myself for trying to aim high?** This world has become a jungle where it is more like **"the survival of the fittest**", if you are not strong enough to fight for your place in this world then you would most likely get trampled upon. It is now a thing of **Me, my family and I,** which keeps making things worse although I would not blame anyone on this path because that is the reality we live in now. Well, each day opens up a new opportunity, each day comes with it's own battle. We are still going to keep fighting for our dreams and make a better place for our families. You know why... **when there is life, there is hope**. <center><img src="https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmdxRW5bRt35rGxijCySU6Ema4j86JAEjc6PZWXLKWJVWB/hands-1838659_1280.jpg "></center><center>Image by <a href="https://pixabay.com/users/pexels-2286921/">pexels</a> at <a href="https://pixabay.com/photos/hands-macro-nature-outdoors-plant-1838659/">pixabay.com</a></center> <br> As for me... I won't back down and there are two options for me, which is..... **it's either I make it big or I make it loud..... either way I am going to build my own place in this world "jungle"**. # Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your day.
