"In order to succeed, you must work hard to put yourself in a position to take advantage of the opportunities that comes your way."

Joe “the trick star” Odhiambo grew up around Mathare Valley in Kenya, one of the largest slums in the world. In such deprived environments, it is easy to give up when you have nothing to look forward too. Students around the world face different situations some more dire than others; however, that does not mean it is the end of the road to success.

You cannot believe in yourself without inspiration. When students are inspired, they believe that they have what it takes to succeed. This leads them to set goals of what they want to attain with the help of positive role models. As they work hard to achieve their goals, they learn that that there are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going. They have to persevere, endure hardship, and keep working hard to be successful. In the process, they also realize that they have to be patient because it takes a long time to achieve success. When one is inspired and truly believes that he or she has what it takes to succeed, he or she becomes responsible, and does what is necessary succeed.

Stop, look and listen to find your inspiration. There are many things in our day-to-day lives that are inspirational; however, people miss them because they do not take the time to stop, look and listen keenly. When you stop to look closely, you will see what other people do not see. When you stop and listen closely, you will hear what other people do not hear. This keen behavior allows you to see inspiration in your daily life that otherwise goes unnoticed.
