Executive Director of Salt and Light Ministries, Dr.Joyce Aryee, has advised the youth to exert themselves to be able to reach the top. According to her, there is no short cut to making it in life.
In an interview with Rev.Erskine on the YLeaderboard Series, she stated: “There is nothing like flawlessly rising to the top. The whole earth is flawed so the ability to go through the flaws of life is what sets us apart”.
She likened life to a puzzle. In her opinion, life is chaotic just like a puzzle. But spending time to put all the pieces together can be rewarding.
“Puzzles are total chaos. But you are to put all the pieces together to get the picture. It is time consuming but imagine the joy you feel when you get the picture. Pain doesn’t always kill. Sometimes pain helps us to get other ways of doing things”, she added.
She noted that even when a person becomes a leader, the most important thing is to lead by serving.
“A lot of us see leadership as lording it over people. But leadership really is about serving people. A leader has to provide opportunities for other leaders to emerge without feeling threatened. If you had to do all the thinking how are you going to cope? You will not know everything. We need to have that kind of humility”, she stated.
Dr.Mrs.Joyce Aryee also known as “Auntie Joyce” is recognized for having served Ghana for more than 40 years in both the public and private sectors.
