It`s better to work hard for achievements, rather than rely on others for help, because often, when the help comes, it might be less than what you wish or expect. (Meaning)

As we enter the year 2016, we can only achieve much if we work hard and be focused because self-reliance is the mother of progress. In African culture, helping each other is encouraged because we need one another. However, begging, which involves much courage and perseverance, is encouraged only if one is genuinely in need or adverse conditions (eg. In the case of sickness, handicapped, pestilences, money shortages, famine etc). Otherwise, over dependence is discouraged as it is believed that self-reliance discourages laziness and helps one not only materially but psychologically as well. Often, over-dependence might lead to a situation whereby the giver might not be in a position to give away much or the receiver feels insulted that the giver has not given the receiver as much as they asks for. Furthermore, culturally or religiously, unnecessary begging or over-dependence is discouraged because an idle mind is a devil`s workshop.

The year 2016 is in your hand. First of all, be grateful you made it alive! You must decide how you want this year to be for you ““ A year that demands honesty, tireless work and success or you prefer to fold your hands and give up easily? Life is full of challenges; you can only solve problems by confronting them. Definitely, not by postponing them or running away from them.
