The writer has pointed out that sometimes it’s not about the figures you earn but if your passion lies in what you do then sooner or letter you will be successful.

She explained this using the life experience of Mai Atafo the designer of Banky W wedding suit.

Betty said that Mai Atafo called her that he wants to work with her as an employee but she refused telling him the firm can’t pay him, but he said it’s not about the money that he just want to follow his passion. She also said that he was so humble, he received the little we could afford and he also run errands not minding his prominence an experience.

“This is how to be INTENTIONAL.
Ohimai Atafo @maiatafo left a 7 figure paying job as Brand Manager of Guinness Stout to chase a fiery, burning passion in Fashion In 2010. When he called me that year to say he wanted to freelance as Genevieve fashion editor, I told him we couldn’t afford to pay him. He said it wasn’t about the money.

So Mai came on board as the Fabulous Fashion Editor of Genevieve on a monthly allowance of N250k. Some of his fashion ideas were too crazy for us but hey we probably needed some crazy in our fashion editorials. We hit some and missed some. And that was ok too. At Genevieve, he was just another regular member of the GTEAM and not the boss guy from the corporate world although he was cruising into the office in a Mercedes SUV! He ate “mama put” with his team and ran errands when called to do so. By the time Mai left two years later, he was well on his way to becoming who he set out to be in 2010.

He knew what his end game was and he didn’t leave anything to chance, he worked towards it and knows that even now he is still work in progress.”

So how intentional are you in the attainment of your goals? Still standing by the poolside and testing the waters with your big toe or still Praying without actions or Waiting for the mountain to come to you and blaming everyone for your lack of drive? Won’t or can’t take a risk?? Ok, here’s the thing; Nothing moves until you move! How badly do you want IT? Then what are you waiting for. Go on, stir things up. You have wasted enough time already!” she wrote
