- A man named Tshilidzi Nenzhelele has shared the success story of how he got his PhD on Facebook
- Tschilidzi weathered all odds to show that when one's mind is set on something great, nothing is impossible
- The achiever signed off his story by saying that anybody make it as long as you are fed up with being low
A man has taken to social media to show just how full of possibilities life is to those who work hard.
Tshilidzi Nenzhelele started off living in a mud hut but did not let those circumstances stop him from obtaining his PhD.
Nenzhelele shared his story on the Facebook #ImStaying group. He narrated how he used to live in a mud hut and ride on a donkey cart for transportation.
Despite these circumstances, he studied further and managed to obtain his PhD.
"You can change as long as you are sick and tired of your current status. Almost every person who broke a world record was once sick and tired of seeing the same record," he said.
He encouraged fellow South Africans to reach beyond the minimum in order to achieve a better future.
"Focus, act, it’s possible."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported thatrepresenting the country well in the diaspora.
He came from a very humble beginning as he was the son of a taxi driver. Though he was based in Illinois, he was given a big significant contract to renovate an airport in Chicago.
Some of the projects he handled were at the University of Illinois Medical Center and the University of Illinois.
The most inspiring thing about his story is that the airport he renovated was the same place his father used to scout for passengers.
He is the head of BOWA Construction, the building company that led more than 25 subcontractors to change a warehouse into a sterling piece of artwork.
