Chairman of Cubana groups, Obinna Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana has admonished youths on ‘selflessness’, ANAMBRA PEOPLE reports.
The cosmopolitan businessman, in a post via his Instagram page on Monday, recounted a book he once read on ‘selflessness’ as he outlined its characteristic.
Obi Cubana also highlighted a society void of selfless individuals alongside its demerits as he tasked his readers to live selflessly.
“Good morning my fellow Nigerian Youths!! Today let’s talk about SELFLESSNESS!!” the 47-year-old nightlife boss wrote.
“Once upon a time, I read a book “for their tomorrow, we gave our today….” This is a clear definition of selflessness.
“Selflessness is where u think more about the next person than yourself, or at least think about them as much as you think about yourself!
“You’re concerned about how the next person is faring, how he/she is surviving, how he/she would feel if u do certain things. How your actions/inactions affects the next person. Save someone else from dying of starvation? Can u sacrifice some luxury, to ensure some kids of incapable parents go to school?”
Obi Cubana added: “The society we live in today is more of “cat eat cat” than “be your brothers’ keeper.”
The level of very unhealthy competition amongst “friends” leaves one wondering the essence of life generally.
“People who should normally collaborate to make the world a better place are seriously competing unnecessarily thereby brewing hate, envy, wickedness and bitter rivalry. What does this lead to??
“The generations after us are keenly watching and learning and these things will be replicated in hundreds of folds! Are you not worried about the society you will leave behind for your children?
“The very essence of life is to live, not just exist. To love one another, and to leave the environment/society better than we met it!!! Nothing ever lasts forever…….only peace of mind if you work towards achieving that!!! Be a selfless human, think about the world and let’s make it a better place!
“Na enjoyment carry me come this world ooo, and I go dey enjoy am dey go!!! Have an amazing week.”
