Webfortunes beckon to all who are willing and are aware of the fact that there are lots of avenues to earn substantial income online the legitimate way. Sometimes you make money directly from the web while the money may come indirectly as well. You may come about some valuable items or resources that may pave way for you to enhance your economic status or pave way for you to upgrade your professional status.
         This was the case with a well known educationist called Professor Raphidimo; a specialist in the study of History and International relations. He was invited to speak to the students of a local secondary school in a week-long event tagged ‘Career Week’ meant to enlighten and prepare the students of the school for great future. The speaker was to show the eager students “How to become great in life”; he was to show them the practical methods that could be adopted by the students in order to tread the path of greatness.
        “In order to become great, one of the effective methods is to study the lives of the great personalities-both the present and the past, and apply some of their worthwhile personal principles to your own life.” He told his totally gripped audience that everything about him changed as soon as he started reading about the great personalities; one after the other. His thinking pattern, reaction to issues, willingness and courage to face life challenges –all changed for better; he asserted.
      He asked the students if they ever heard about any or some of the names of great personalities he was about to mention. As he mentioned each of them the students cheered uproariously. He mentioned such names as Chairman Mao of China, Pandit Nehru and Indira Gandhi, both of India; Winston Churchill of England, George Washington and  J F Kennedy of the United States of America, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Nnamdi Azikwe of Nigeria, Barak Obama- also of America, etc. On the religious side, he mentioned the Lord Jesus Christ, D L Moody, Wigglesworth, Billy Graham, Rein hard Bonkey and some others.
           “The most interesting part of it all is that you don’t need to spend a fortune to access the information you need about the great personalities that you want to learn about; all you need is to connect to the web and either conduct a search through one of the search engines or go to one of the rich web libraries and you get even more than you need…”
