I booked a Highlander Jeep to Speak at a seminar, no body showed up. See how I reacted

Ordinarily, I wouldn't want to waste a muscle on this, but let's talk about it. I feel bored. 😁.

A couple of a few weeks ago, I was invited to give a lecture at a young people's business seminar, held somewhere in Nigeria, West Africa.

I was given a time to come up on stage to speak, so I arrived the venue in a Highlander Jeep, just about 5minutes before my speech time. 

(Werey! 🙄. Yes I had to include the Highlander Jeep part. We all deserve pampering, don't we😅😂).

Anyway, it was an Uber Highlander Jeep I booked (For a deliberate purpose) oya drop the blood pressure. We still trek together 😅😅😂. Happy?

So... On getting to the venue, the proposed seminar hall was still locked. What? Ah! 🙆‍♀️.

I called this guy who have been disturbing me and telling me how they need me to give a lecture at the Seminar and how they anticipate a great impact after my speech. 

Apparently, someone had talked so highly of me to them. Ok oh!

Oga said he was on his way and asked someone to attend to me. After about 1hour, I was still waiting in a nearby scanty and quiet eatery where I just sipped cold water quietly.

After a while, they unlocked the hall, sent for me and we all got in.  I literally entered their hall with them and had just about 2 or 3 people seated after close to 2hours. 🤦

Apparently, they didn't even bother doing some publicity or adverts to bring people to the seminar.

At first, I felt really embarrassed. I won't lie about that. I felt Dishonored, I still won't lie and the worst was that I wasted over an hour doing nothing. A time I would have invested into my business or personal development.

I now remembered the small money I spent booking a Highlander Jeep just to put myself in the right frame of mind to talk about Money and business.

To cut the long story short, I spoke to the few people and many empty chairs like I had a full room. I lectured with my heart and gave our ideas I won't even bulge to give for free. In the end we had more people join. So in all we were about 5 or 6 😂😂

I know I had a natural tendency to be proud, or be misunderstood as being arrogant, so I consciously work hard to be human first. (If you like keep lying to yourself about who you are).

My passion for people's growth overrode my desire for a full room, which was not bad to ask for giving the time and resources I had put at stake to be there. 

Well, after all, where two or three are gathered, he is always with them. ☺️

I gave my best shot to an empty room.☺️

I'll give same shot to a hall full of thousands somewhere in London soon.

I know this!!!

Anyway, I'm Mr Awesome.
