These two words – progress and development are synonymous and are geared towards prosperity which should be complimentary in any society. Whether as an individual or as a group, it is necessary to set up our goals in life towards progress and development, for our personal lives and that of our communities. Again these tenets equally attribute growth in any societal realm.
As a result, in our personal lives, specific activities and leadership charges or roles, it is expected of us to aspire and strive towards progress and development with out which we can not attain or achieve social longevity which will definitely lead to better living conditions such as - fundamental human rights, social justice, free opinion and expression, economic independence, empowerment and equality.
We are also expected to access whatever we do, any charge or responsibilities bestowed on us and employ all our efforts and utmost to attain constant progress and development that are quite evident. I find it sad to absorb the fact that, most of our nations branded underdeveloped, seem to be quite contented and do nothing or little to thrive to be qualified as developed. It puzzles me why they even struggled for independence in the first place, when they are still dependent on other nations for sustainability and survival. Instead, their national debts increases, but citizens are still in gross need, living in precarious conditions and abject poverty for lack of socio-economic development.
What irk me is that, most of these nations are naturally blessed with lots of resources which is even exploited to make growth eminent, yet the growth of these countries are stagnant or prone to regress, shifting their economic situation from good to bad and bad to worst. The wealth and economic powers are usually in the hands of just a few.
However, those with foresights and zeal towards progress and development should not relent to bring about changes and through our individual precepts, drive and efforts, no matter how small, we can contribute in making an impact and bring about progress and development, if not in a larger scale but at least for our immediate community.
I uphold here at World Pulse, we have embarked on a mission and journey to speak out and sort solutions and resolutions geared towards progress and development. Let us therefore not relent in our struggles to bring about social equilibrium.
