13 Lessons From 10 Years Challenge in Ghana

  1. God Changes Destinies

Never underestimate the power of little and humble beginnings. The fact that your life doesn’t seem to be good today does not mean that it will still be that bad tomorrow. So long as you serve the God that changes destiny, He will turn around your situation for the better.

  1. Never look down on anyone

Never look down on anyone today if they do not look honourable. The God of destiny can put you to shame. In the next 10 years, the people you may look down on them could surprise you and your servant today can be your employer tomorrow.

  1. Many have come this far by grace

The 10 years challenge is not only funny and serving as entertainment but a gentle reminder that we have all come this far through the grace of God alone. Let no man boast.

  1. A lot of body enhancement took place.

After observing pictures of some celebrities and some women in general, I realized that some women deliberately “changed their skin colour” and “altered their body shapes” over the past years. Some of them have undergone the knife (surgery) in order to have some kind of attractive and “killer shapes” that can draw all attention and followers on social media.

  1. A lot more have come that by crooked means

After carefully observing the 10 years challenge pictures of some celebrities and individuals, one thing was indirectly too obvious, your past life is a mirror of your current situation. Some people accused of playing the harlot in the past years have now advanced in their harlotry. Others too started with crooked means, illegal business and criminal activities and their 10 years challenge pictures are not only entertaining but reveal the genesis of their lifestyle.

  1. Your story is a motivation to others

When people know how you struggled in life and yet made it within a period of 10 years, it will serve as motivation to other people in same or similar situation. In fact, 10 years is even too much. God can totally transform your life with few months and people may not even recognize you.

  1. Beware of those who change their sex

In the past 10 years, some people were known to be men but they have now changed their sex and now known as women. This is a bad idea. You can change your sex but you cannot change the true identity of who God created you to be.

  1. Your next 10 years could be mixed feelings

You have no idea what lies ahead of you, even the next 30 seconds. Though we wake up each morning with hopes of a better day and a better future, the next 10 years could be laced with mixed feelings. That is the

  • Good – When everything falls in its rightful place
  • Bad – When bad times show up to mess you up
  • Ugly – When the worst happens causing tears to fill your eyes.
  • Anything that happens could be better or bitter lessons, learn from it.
  1. Taking pictures help to tell your story and history

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Taking pictures frequently from time to time gives you the opportunity to see how you have developed over time and it helps to tell your story better with evidence.

  1. Some friends are missing or dead for life

Cast your mind back and have a snap check whether all the people you knew for the past 10 years are all alive and doing better. The 10 years challenge is not only entertaining but also brings bad memories as some people glance through their pictures and realized that it is exactly 10 years when they lost a fellow they took a picture with.

  1. Don’t criticize until you know the full story

One of the biggest lessons the 10 years challenge revealed is to know the history behind some people before you begin to throw jabs at them. Until you know someone’s story and what they have been through and managed to survive, don’t be quick to point fingers at them and judge them.

  1. It’s all a matter of time

Time is one of the most powerful forces we have in this world. The 10 years challenge and how some people have managed to leave abject poverty and have now become millionaires or at least, managing life is just a matter of time. Time will surely tell and gives everyone a fair opportunity to turn situations around.

  1. No one can tell your story better than you

You knew exactly what you have been through. People can say just anything about you but no one can tell it better than yourself. You are the best author of your life’s story.
