Lesson for Success #10: Reverence and Decency

Honour your father and mother; look after your parents.

“And today, mum turns 64! Cheers to the woman whose love, grace, compassion, sobriety and kindness knows no boundaries. Ours is a story resilience, hard work, honesty, sacrifice and modesty; a story too long to be shared in a single post. Wishing you 36 more years of being the finest mother I could ever ask for.”

Never ever discount the role of blessings in a person’s success and how blessings can run away from selfish narcissistic people.

The little science you have read about matter and the big-bang should never turn you into a snob – we are not anywhere near understanding the vast quantity of the forces that drive the universe and there-in lie the blessings that come from being humble and respectful.

With his permission, we are serialising and publishing on our CPAR Uganda Ltd website and social media platforms these lessons for success that were first shared by Dr. Roy William Mayega, on Friday, 2nd October 2020, on his Facebook wall. He accompanied them with the following explanatory introduction:

“I have been working with relatively young people (below 40 years of age) and in my interactions with them, I have found 10 skills that prevent many of them from becoming a beacon of professionalism. Skills not formally taught in school yet so vital. Skills that would transform a young professional into a ‘hot cake’ for inclusion in successful enterprises… As for those of us 40 years and above, I have no advice. Our kind is already irredeemably hardwired in our stupidities.”

Dr. William Roy Mayega, a Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, a the School of Public Health Makerere University Kampala
