There is a story my mother told me when I was young. It was about a clan called "Mbari ya Ngeeka." They always wished to do something but never did. Time always ran out before they could even get started. When an opportunity passed them, the Ngeeka clansmen and women were always the first to lament, "We wish we knew." Mbari ya Ngeeka are well spread out in the geographical area that I serve. Many are stuck in powerful countries but in weakened positions because their work IDs expired ages ago. Some are clogged by poor mentalities inflicted upon them by their cousins "Mbari ya Ndiri (the clan of the have-nots)."
I have seen the Ngeeka mentality in many potential applicants. Rules have occasionally changed and many Ngeeka clansmen and women have been dropped from existing eligibility lists. In the year 2010, about 10 of my clients from the US were dropped before we could lodge their applications when the Canadian government decided to remove IT and Finance professionals from the eligibility list. Now, these 2 occupations are acceptable (2013-2014) and the Ngeekas are still thinking...
This is my advise. If your occupation qualifies today, apply quickly without delay.If you wait too long, chances are that the rules will change before your file has been seen by someone who can make a difference in your life. As you remain stuck in indecision, please reflect on these sayings:
- An expensive shoe that hurts the toes is only good as exhibit at an amputation deliberation
- You cannot entrench well in a rented home
- You cannot plan the future while sitting on borrowed time
- Unajifanya ngómbe ukamuliwe na nani?
- Mundu mugi ndari mihere ya uhoro.
