On Pressure

Do you and be damn good at it! DON'T SUCCUMB TO PRESSURE! DO YOU AND BE DAMN GOOD AT IT!

The subject of pressure is not foreign to any human being because we are subjected to it daily - either from family, peers/friends, society, or even from ourselves (self-imposed). But what is pressure? What does it mean to be under pressure? In my opinion, I see pressure as an attempt at persuading, intimidating, motivating, or coercing someone into doing something. Pressure can either have negative or positive effects on you, depending on how you take it. It is the pressure that has pushed people into doing all manner of things in order to make it.

Pressure, like I stated earlier, can come from:

1. Society (social media falls into this category).

2. Family (parents and relatives).

3. Peers/friends.

'make it.'

At this point ehn, if you no get mind commot body for social media because the kind of things you see can make you question yourself. Social media can make you feel like you're 'dulling,' and before you know it, all manner of thoughts come in, and you may end up succumbing to the pressure. You may see the 'doings' of your friends, those in your age grade, or relatives and think, 'e be like say I escort other people come to this life.' Some people may even come to you to gloat and talk down to you. But...

I believe that no matter how bad something seems, it can be turned into an advantage. You can turn that pressure into positive motivation. This is where the self-imposed pressure comes in. Put yourself under pressure to succeed. Don't settle for less; detest mediocrity; strive to be better, and don't forget to do it all at your own pace. Don't measure your success based on what society, friends, or family tells you. Do you and be damn good at it!
