Actualising Life’s dreams entails strong determination, says Nollywood actor



Nollywood star actor, Ninawolo Bolanle, says for an individual to actualise any dream in life, the person should be determined to go for what he or she wants, no matter the cost or challenges.

The renowned actor, who took to his Instagram handle @iamnino_b, to make this statement, also encouraged people to always put in more effort by going all the way in getting what they want not minding the cost.

According to him, one can lose stability and comfort in order to achieve his or her aim or desire in life.

“If you want something in life, you have to also want the costs of getting it!

“You have to be willing to put in the effort and go all the way! Otherwise, there’s no point in dreaming.

“This can  mean losing stability and comfort for a while, and maybe even your mind on occasion.

“It can mean not eating what you want, or sleeping in, for weeks on end.

“It can  mean stretching your comfort zone so thin it gives you a case of the chills.

“It can  mean sacrificing certain relationships and daring yourself to make new ones.

“It can also mean accepting ridicule from people, It can mean spending time alone in solitude.

“Solitude, though, is a gift that makes great things possible – it gives you the space you need.

“Everything else is a test of your determination, of how much you want it.

” If you really want it, you’ll do it, despite discomfort and rejection and the odds,” he wrote.
