Patience Ozokwo has taken to social media to disclose how lonely and hard the journey from being a nobody, to somebody is regardless of any particular field or area of life.
Truly, to achieve success is difficult because it often requires a lot of hard work, perseverance, and sacrifice. There are usually many obstacles along the way when someone sets out to achieve a goal or to make a name for themselves.
Also, it is particularly difficult, lonely and hard moving from a “nobody to somebody” because of the fear of failure, rejection and criticism. These can easily hurt a person’s self-confidence and motivation.
Many who have found themselves in this situation will tell you that breaking away from the expectations and norms of society can be very difficult.
However, despite the challenges, success will come but it involves time and effort but could lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness.
So it is easy to understand the point Patience Ozokwo was trying to put across. She wrote;
“The journey from nobody to somebody is often lonely and hard. Advisers, critics , supporters, friends and enemies usually missed the whole story.”
