Rejoinder--» Life is All about survival of the fittest


{An interpretation of the phrase "survival of the fittest" to mean "only the fittest organisms will prevail". Any individual organism which succeeds in reproducing itself is "fit"}

I read through Ayobami Sholola's "#ThinkingOutLoud - My Perspective on Life" It was quite inspiring like most of my oga's posts. Clearly, I agree with almost everything he said. From the concept of being an onlooker to being a difference maker, he made some great points.

One thing that stood out from the post and which I do not agree with is when he wrote, "Life to me is not about the survival of the fittest". He described the difference maker as "those with a passion to be different, to do something new, they have visions,  they have purpose, they are goal setters, they aim to  meet the targets that’s been set," they were "warriors" "overcomers" men who have almost  gotten to the pinnacle of their lives. Like he said "They are everywhere but yet scarce". Sounds cool? Yes; it does. But my question is, why are they scarce? Why don't we have them in abundance? Oh, before you rush to crucify me, ask yourself, how does one become outstanding among the crowd?


Let me say this, YOU MUST FIGHT TO BE DIFFERENT. The road to the top is narrow and only those who fights and in this context, only those who are "fit" will make it to the top.  Listen to the words of Anne frank "The weak die out and the strong will survive, and will live on forever.”Your survival in the race to succeed isn't just for you to be "fit", but I dare say that you must be FIT ENOUGH. And hear this again, you must be better equipped for surviving.

“The spirit finds a way to be born. Instinct seeks for ways to survive.”― Toba Beta

You must possess all the strength - physical and mental smartness to survive in this world. The reason most people after a Bsc, go for a Masters, PhDs, etc is simply because the world itself is all about competition for the few available choice resources and positions. It is "likely" that the more qualified you are, the more your chances of getting what you want.

"Almost all 'difference makers' were once onlookers, but what distinguished them is their hunger," he said. It was their instinct for survival that created the hunger, and how do they distinguished themselves? By being fit enough for a world of competition. Go back to be basics and build yourself, because you will need all the strength you can get to survive in this world.

Why and what is it that makes one survive and succeed no matter what the circumstance?  This is for you to answer.

 Life as a matter of fact is not only about Survival of the fittest but Survival of the fittest enough.

  1. Nice writeup,its truly the survival of the fittest,because in Nigeria today,the higher you go,the better you become which goes in line with the saying that"The reason most people after a Bsc, go for a Masters, PhDs, etc is simply because the world itself is all about competition for the few available choice resources and positions. It is "likely" that the more qualified you are, the more your chances of getting what you want".its all about what you can offer in life(sacrifice)in other to get what you want.keep the good work going Mr Famuyide.its a nice one.

  2. Hmmmmm.........I totally agree with this.

    "Almost all 'difference makers' were once onlookers, but what distinguished them is their hunger,"......and may I add - and how far they were willing to go to get that hunger satisfied-. The seeker always finds! but it takes a lot of guts to be a seeker! a whole lot of guts!

    This has a lot of depths in it. You got me thinking hard. Thank you.

    Dear Mr. Reader, I may not totally agree with your point of analysis neither will I disagree with it. I will rather challenge you to it because of my different perspective I craved. One thing I am sure of is that 'weakness and limitation only exist in our mind as a result of variables around us. Let me reply your rejoinder in my next write up.
    Salient points sir!

  7. good read but may I add my little honest opinion, different people dont strive or fight to be different or should I say we shouldn't fight to be different, like no 2 snow flake alike we are made differently. I think the we ought just be ourselves as created by God. The difference is essentially in the BE-ing.

  8. I disagree to an extent,life being the survival of the fittest using the PHd/masters for example is subjective. It's not on a world scale. You don't need all that to be somebody in most developed countries. If your statement is totally true,how come some people with all d above listed qualifications still remain a failure/unsuccessful. To my best of knowledge,I believe if you make it a competition you might succeed--'might'but if you treat it the other way,you won't only succeed,you shall become an exceptional success itself.
