The Real Cost To Great Success

What is success? It is a toy balloon among children armed with pins.

Four years ago, when we started iDebate Rwanda, It wasn’t easy to operate in a society where debate was a new culture. Our project proposals were rejected year after year. But we couldn’t wait for success, so we went ahead without it because we have always believed that the trick to succeeding was to stop thinking that there’s a trick to everything.

Don’t aim for success if you want it; if you do so, you will be limiting yourself and reduce the probability of great success. Just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally. Do not be like some people who dream of success, while others wake up and work hard at it.

We never know, believe me, when we have succeeded best. The World Schools Debate Championship 2016 seems to be the first big Debate competition that iDebate Rwanda is attending, we are excited and are working to win. But this is not the most important thing; the most important thing is to ask ourselves: What is next chapter after we win in Stuttgart?

But my dear reader, as you climb the ladder of success, be sure it’s leaning against the right building.
