It’s true that success is not a day’s work and Rome was not built in a day, but everyone is expected to have attained a level of balance by 10 years, 20 years, 30 Years and even by 40 years.
We take a look at 10 things every Nigerian man should achieve on or before 30…
1. Be Matured – Maturity has got nothing to do with age but if by 30 years, a guy isn’t matured; then he’s on his way to multiple failures on all front.
2. Be in a serious relationship – If not married, then a matured man should be in a serious relationship and getting ready to settle down soon.
3. Be Educated (formal or informal) – The bedrock of every success is education. A man should have attained his first degree or should have a qualification in his chosen field.
4. Have a Home of his own (rented, bought or built) – We don’t expect that by 30, any guy should be living with his parents and feeding from their pot, he can, however, live in a property built by his father/mother if he has a flat owned by himself alone.
5. Have a paying job or business – He should either have a good paying job, even when it’s below what he thinks he deserves or he should be in business, building a fortune for himself.
6. Be responsible – He should be responsible and live a responsible lifestyle.
7. Be Independent – He should take his decisions (with or without advice). He should be his own boss in that department.
8. Have a set goal – He should by this age, have a set and defined goal, a picture of where he wants to be in the nearest future.
9. Learn to Drive a car – Even if he doesn’t own a car, every 30 year old man should have attained training in driving to a large extent – an opportunity could open up or in the case of an emergency that would require him to drive a car.
10. Have a saving – He should have a saving plan, for the future, his family and a retirement plan.
Start planning today, every day counts – and if already you’re above 30 years and yet to achieve some of the things highlighted above, start now to aim and work towards achieving them.
