Beyond The Stars

A story of a little boy who almost gave up academically, but through the help, encouragements and love of his mum, picked up again.

" Come on, my boy, why are you getting frustrated over the whole situation? You are a strong boy, for crying out loud, remember that a strong man is not a man without failures but a man built by his failures; even if he falls seven times, seven times he will rise again" Ma Benita trying to exhilarate her son who had just failed his promotional exam for the second time.

" Mum, please, spare me all these motivational quotes; it will be nice for me to accept my fate like this; I am tired of fighting when I know it's futile" Johnny had barely finished speaking when his mum broke down in tears. " What fate, if I may ask you, why give up when the whole world is waiting to hear your story of success? Fight on for my sake, please; just look at your twin Johnson who is full of positivity for academic excellence," Ma Benita said amidst tears.

Fortunately, with time Johnny began to take his studies seriously due to his mother's persistent encouragement and slowly began to pick up academically, and he eventually won several awards and scholarships from several organizations. At the same time, Johnson became puffed up because of his mum's praises and began to neglect his studies, and was eventually beginning to lose focus on everything. Ma Benita noticed the Changes in her sons and called them together and, with a calm voice, said," The man who loves walking will go further than the man who loves the destination."
