“Your beginnings shouldn’t be compared to someone’s 10 years of experience” – Timi Dakolo advises beginners to give themselves time to grow
Popular Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has taken to social media to give important advice to people who are just starting their careers.
He urged beginners to give themselves time to grow while reiterating that nobody was really good at the beginning.
According to him, most people learn on the job, and it’s normal to make mistakes and flunk on the first try, but it will only get better with time and consistency.
In his words,
“Just so you know, nobody started really really good. We learnt on the job. Your beginnings shouldn’t be compared to someone’s 10 years of experience. That’s so unfair to what you are building. Give yourself time to grow.
“The truth is that you are going to mess up a lot at the beginning. Flunk at your first try. Your first work will look like nothing you have in mind. That’s ok.
“We all didn’t get it right at first, it is possible the people you admire now were worse than you at the beginning. That part wasn’t just shown to you. So it’s ok if you are struggling at first, it’s part of the process. Nobody was really good at the beginning.”
