Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar has advised Nigerians to avoid listening to motivational speakers if they want to keep their sanity.
Overtime the country has experienced a rise in the number of motivational speakers who act as life coaches to proffer life solutions to challenges people face everyday, and just like every other profession some of these motivational speakers have done more harm than good by citing really depressing success stories thereby leading their clients to unnecessary pressure and making bad decisions.
According to the actress, taking advice from motivational speakers can make people lose their minds when things don’t work out as intended, she added that if anyone should need advice they should talk to God or their family members.
Taking to her Instagram page, she wrote:
“DON’T LISTEN TO MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS , FOR YOUR OWN , GREATER GOOD.YOUR HEALTH. MENTAL HEALTH, GO TALK TO GOD, AVOID THEM, FEAR THEM.”
She added: “If you take every advice given, you really want to run mad.”
