The world is full of hypocrite and majolo monweyin e (meaning, am watching your back nothing will happen). As long they are benefiting from your position, they will continue playing eye service and lip service. They will never correct you or call your attention once they know that it will affect what they will benefit from you.

We saw this played out during the time of Nigeria immediate past president, Mr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan when he intensified re-election campaign. The one that surprise many was the one he sat in the midst of Obas (kings) from South-West Nigeria in Ife at the palace of Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade. All the kings pointed their staff of office on him, indicating prayer session. 
Others in various region and group thronged him for the money, position, contract they will get from him but, immediately the election indicated that Jonathan is behind Buhari, one by one the so call loyalist started dumping him and today, only few people, save Reno Omokri that are still with him. Others have since jump to the moving train Buhari for what they will benefit from the president or the fear of prosecution of their various crime. For Mr Jonathan, How time flies.

"When you are in a position, people may be  praising you. Don't let it get to your head or your heart. Be yourself and don't get carried away. Even if they mean to be true and sincere, check yourself that you have not exceed your limits.

The picture above where Austrian-American actor & former professional bodybuilder and former Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger lying beneath his statue is a clear message how time flies.

You may be powerful today but one day you will become powerless, there are many things Arnold can do before but now due to his age he can no longer do them, though his net worth is above $330 million, there is little he can do compare to forty years ago, so be sure that you are doing what is right and what is good. 

Don't place any expectation on others and don't look away at your friends and family or make enemies for yourself. Let your door be open to everyone and open your mind to anyone making a point. They may be your guardian angel. No one knows it all.

Remember that your position is for awhile. The people who surround you to seek your favour will forget you sooner than you can remember. Those who spent time with you are no exception. You may be lonely someday as our former president Jonathan is today. Even some of the people you helped may eventually loath you.

Remember, what you have to your name is your good works. The legacies that you left in the sands of time. That is what will speak for you. Do not assume that every word spoken to you in office will be kept as a promise in future.

Do not trust your position, name, power, money, fame or intelligence as a magic to open doors in future. Only trust in your good work and legacies because nothing last long in life but death.

The above picture posted by Arnold Schwarzenegger on his Instagram, though many on social media interpreted it wrongly by saying he was turned down by the hotel management he was promised a room as a governor but now denied him access because he is out of office, can be interpreted in different ways.
No matter how powerful, wealthy, famous or whatever you may be today, think of tomorrow. Arnold picture is for REFLECTION.

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:11 from Holy Bible (NIV).

Those who are occupying a position today should stop dancing to the tune of majolo monweyin e. Because a day is coming when time will change. Yes, time has changed. 

Live behind you a foot print with a good name for others to follow or emulate.

God bless you.
