Change the Culture, Change the Game

“The first step – especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money – the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.”
Young people are constantly about positive change, perhaps its the notion we have that it’s the key to a blissful life. What is change? See, what young people don’t seem to realize is that culture is everything about change. You change the culture, you transform the habits. HIV/AIDS is not killing us, it is the stigma attached to it. We have to turn around our every day habits to create the positive change we so admire. Are you going to complain of the in-capacities of your government yet you barely complete your class assignments? It is how you do the little things that determines how you will do the  bigger things. So many a times have I taken breaks in my life to evaluate myself and change how i live my life yet i end up in the same place. I’m I stupid? I believe not. I failed to realize that i had to change my negative attitudes, my beliefs maybe, my bad habits to have that turn around in my life. Let’s look at how we do things as a community. Yeah, it’s world environment day, and all green organizations are out in the streets and media rallying people to plant trees. We then plant 10 million trees, But then what? A hundred million trees will be cut before the next world environment day. Is that a difference or negligence? The positive habits we want to see and embrace have to define our everyday living to make a difference. A whole turn over of how we do things as young people is what is going to be the game-changer of our lives. Our every day experiences will determine our culture, it will form the basis of our beliefs, our attitudes, which then determine our actions. Our collective experiences is what will drive the change wave across this Africa continent we adore so much. Let us live the Change experience to make a difference. If at all you want to live the life you wanna live, change the culture of which you do things. We’ve got one life to live, and we have an obligation to live it best. Change the CULTURE to change the GAME.
