Reno Omokri, a Nigerian author, has cautioned individuals avoid advertising what they are planning to do.
In a recent statement on his verified social media profile on the major social media platform, Twitter, the former presidential adviser stated as much.
He expressed this by comparing life to a game of chess. The following is a quote from the post he made:
“You don’t speak in a chess game.” All you have to do is act. When playing chess, the only time you speak is to utter CHECKMATE. Chess is a metaphor for life. Don’t make your intentions known. Act in a calm manner. Continue to succeed. Your CHECKMATE is your accomplishments.”
The following are some of the responses to the post:
@TangoManrio – You are a huge source of inspiration for me. But believe me when I say that I want to get a “Dear Prince” without insulting anyone.
@hafeez praise – I’ve found that speaking less allows you to act more on all of your ambitions and life goals.
@maduchuddi – In fact, before checkmate in a game of Chess, you must say check to alert an opponent each time the opponent is under check.
— @EUnimawho Thanks for your advise; in the kingdom of God, you say it and work towards it, and God verifies it; while Bishop Oyedepo repeated stating he would never be poor, he didn’t seem to believe it; as winners, we believe that a closed mouth is a closed destiny. Grace isn’t just for confessors; it’s for workers as well.
