A young man has taken to social media to share some lessons he learnt from a millionaire. According to the man identified as Praise George on Twitter, one of the lessons is to never ask friends for financial help.
According to Praise George, the Nigerian writer and entrepreneur, the lessons he learnt from the millionaire were to never ask for financial help from friends in order to avoid getting looked down on, always look good and never spread one’s problems around. According to him, this was to keep one’s dignity and respect intact.
He wrote: “Years ago, I met a millionaire. He taught me 3 lessons. 1. Never ask your friends for financial help. They will look down on you. 2. No matter how bad things are, always look good. Do not let anyone see you sweat. 3. Do not spread your problems around. People will avoid you.”
“When you are a millionaire and start asking other millionaires for help, that means you have fallen. They will never send opportunity your way because you have become a financial risk. Ask for advice. Don’t ask for money. Your dignity and respect are intact.”
While many people applauded the post which has since gone viral, a lot of people did not quite agree with the first lesson and reacted to the post with opinions of their own, opining that when it comes to tips on how to be successful, what might work for one will not exactly produce the same result for another. This is why success tips vary.
