SUCCESS OCCURS WHEN PREPARATION MEETS OPPORTUNITY

Late Stella Obasanjo, the wife of the former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo attended a programme close to where she obtained her Secondary School education. After the programme, while stepping out of the venue, she heard somebody shouting from behind, "Aunty Star!, Aunty Star!, Aunty Star!..........."

This was the name her juniors in School used to call her while she was in Secondary School. She turned around and saw the woman calling her and beckoned on her escorts to allow her pass through.The woman informed her that she was one of her juniors while they were in school. Her Excellency was so pleased to meet her. The woman took the opportunity to plead with Stella to assist her as she was a widow and was suffering with her children.

Her Excellency, been a very compassionate woman asked her to name what she wanted her to do for her. The woman replied her by saying "Anything". This question was put to her again and she repeated the same answer!So Her Excellency instructed one of her escorts to give the woman #50,000. After which, she gave the woman her private number and asked her to call her in two weeks time, that she was about traveling out and that by then, she should have thought out exactly what she wants to be done for her. The woman went home rejoicing and even went to testify in Church! However, before the 2 weeks elapsed, Stella Obasanjo died abroad while undergoing a surgery!

Lesson!
Success occurs when preparation meets opportunity. Opportunity is a visitor, when it visits you, try to maximize it to the fullest as it may never come visiting again! Let me join my faith with yours to say this prayer. As we made it into 2018, our destiny helper will not die in JESUS NAME. Amen!!!
