Nigerian Multi Millionaire and Award winning Blogger, Linda Ikeji shares motivational story of how not winning the Miss Nigeria Title that she desperately wanted would later lead her to a career path that would make her millions and place her as the highest paid blogger in Nigeria.
” This is me participating at the 2003 Miss Nigeria Pageant. I desperately wanted to win because i believed i could use the platform to achieve my other dreams. But i didn’t even make top 10 and i remember thinking it was the end of everything i had planned for my future. I felt like a failure for weeks following the pageant. I was mostly in a daze, wondering what to do next. I thought being Miss Nigeria was the best thing that could happened to me. If only i knew that God had a better plan for me. Because you see, If i had won that pageant, i never would have, 3 years later, thought of starting a gossip blog. i probably would have thought it was beneath me as a former queen lol. you see, sometimes, some of the most amazing blessings happen when things don’t turn out the way we hoped it would. We think its the right path. you have to that God knows what He’s doing in your life. Trust Him and trust your journey. All the best”. Linda Ikeji wrote as she posted the picture above.
