If you are a gambler you will understand what I mean by “sure odd”.
which one is sure?, your intelligence or sure betting odd? If you say your intelligence, then I can say you are not a gambler or you are not a chronic gambler and if you say sure betting odd then I will say you are a chronic gambler and that’s when your intelligence will suffer.
Do you believe that high percentage of people living the world are gamblers, you argue? Remember, anything you can’t apply your intelligence to affect it outcome or change it cause is gamble or anything that it outcome lies on luck is gamble. So how are you living the life you live, in a gamble manner? or are you applying your intelligence? For instance, do you get married because your pastor says “if you do not marry this year, you can’t be successful? if that is the case, then you just gamble with your marriage, are you planning to sit down with a class mate for help during an examination time or someone assured you he/she will help you in an exam time? If that is the case, then you have just gamble with your exam, someone promise you work in shell and since then you have not been doing anything rather waiting for the promise to come true? Stop gambling with your life. There are many things people gamble with, even with the most simplest things in their life, know this, that gambling reduce the level of your intelligence and that’s one reason you need to be very careful on how you navigate your life.
To me, the sure odd in this life is the outcome of the application of your intelligence not the sure betting odd because no mater how sure a betting odd is, the outcome remains possible outcome or luck. Live your life in the faith of your intelligence not the faith of possible outcome.
Expand your horizon, think deep, believe in your potential, analyze, experiment and live in a wider space to achieve more in life rather than living in a confine space of luck. Stop deteriorating your intelligence because it is the most important part of your life.
