Embrace Self Making: Nothing Works Better Here

Just like every aspect of our lives, most times, successes in education come by self-making. People succeed in exams, at sports, in businesses etc with more of personal practice, reading and continual learning.

Why waiting for somebody – a teacher, tutor, coach or instructor to put us through? Must we wait to be instructed to read before we can? Why don’t you learn on your own? It’s actually not impossible to self make yourself.

“Self-making” – I will call it. Though we may have teachers, coaches, parents, brothers, sisters and friends around us to push and encourage us, the best (most times) comes to us with our personal efforts.
I made that result, not in the final year in school. I had started the journey to best result from the first year.

After I got my result in the final exam, my teachers were all happy and proud of me. In the last years, no senior prefect had got such grades at one sitting. Even though I was celebrated, celebrating my teachers for their contributions to this outstanding performance was mine.


The town celebrated because such results should award you on its own. Most people attributed my success to my school’s academic excellence because my school was one of the best in town. Some called it luck and others believed I deserved it.

I agreed more with the third class of people who opined I deserved it. That’s my stand too.

I made that result, not in the final year in school. I had started the journey to best result from the first year, if not from primary school.

I can’t count the number of times I had to study for four hours in the days and at nights. In order to be free from distractions from friends and parents, I must leave home back to school on weekends to read. I used my savings to buy books not clothes and shoes.

No doubt about this stand, I had done most of what they called luck by myself.

I made myself.
