Unemployment is not only a typical Nigerian phenomenon. It is a global issue. Many are being thrown out of their jobs while the few jobs available is highly competitive.

.
The biggest problem plaguing youths in Nigeria is the problem of being jobless. After searching fruitlessly for a while, many resign to fate and give up. Some go into depressive moods.

.
However it is also worthy of note that this same menace of unemployment has driven many people in to their dreams. It has made them recognise their God-given purpose. Many have accidentally found themselves in other endeavours that are more beneficial and rewarding than the paid employment they were seeking.

.
Paid employment is good. But it is still not a ticket to happiness. Nothing in the world is. But if you are in one, or eventually get one, make sure you retain it especially if its profitable. Learn new skills and add to the growth of your environment.

.
If it happens that you still haven’t found, you are still in luck. Have you been sensitive enough to notice how the universe is arranging things on your behalf? Of course, there is a God that controls the universe and He is in the habit of making things happen.

.
Most likely, he would use what is in your hands to launch you. So, what is in your hand? What skill, lesson, former expertise, knowledge, idea do you possess and have not acted upon?

.

You have prayed endlessly to God and you think he hasn’t answered your prayer. Its only that he answered it a while ago and has nudged you endlessly to move in the right direction but you are still stuck in one spot. You are waiting for a big break. You already have that break, act on it.

.
What is that thing that you love to do without stress? What is that habit you possess which is profitable? What have people commended you on? How can you make this skill your source of daily bread? Do you need to have a Facebook page to advertise this skill or another form of internet presence?

.
Here is why unemployment shouldn’t stop you from your dreams

.
1. Most times, your dreams are greater than your proposed employment. However, if you start imagining where you want to be, you start giving all it takes to work towards it, maybe by offering free consultation, acquiring a new degree, offering yourself for voluntary non paying organizations, then, you are on your way to achieving your dreams. At the end of the day, your dreams doesn’t need your employment status before it comes to pass.

.
2. Unemployment is a temporary phase in your life, no season in life lasts forever no matter how long it looks.

.
There is seed time and harvest time in life. Seasons go and come since the beginning of creation. The fact that it looks so long doesn’t mean your miracle job will not fall at your feet. You are likely going through a test of patience phase. Its just a time of growth, of self development but how much are you utilizing this season? Unemployment is just a bend in your life’s journey. You haven’t seen the full picture yet, so why worry.

.
3.The world answers to people with skills, grounded expertise and personal gifts

.
A man’s gifts, expertise, skills will make way for him beyond what paid employment can offer. Not that employment cannot offer you the same platform, but that is only if your job is in line with your purpose. Skills now rule the world. Men of skills now create employment. People now build apps, they produce games and other fascinating things that has set them apart from all men.

.
Time waits for no man. Unemployment is not about you. It doesn’t mean you are not doing anything right. It doesn’t mean life will not answer to you. It is just a physical state of things. You can take the lead and decide to move ahead with what you have in your hands.
