"Ẹni bá ńjẹ làbẹ́ Jẹ́gẹ́dẹ́ ló ńpèé nígi Àràbà". It's one who profits from a man that hails him as the silk cotton tree. To be considered mighty in the hearts and minds of the people you serve, you must add value to their lives. One of the challenges of doing so is helping your people to achieve the things that are important to them - even if those things are not so important to you. Of course, there are also times when you know what's best for someone, but before they will accept your guidance, you have to earn trust and demonstrate mutual respect. Once people know that you're looking out for their interests, and that you have valuable resources to share, your stature grows in their eyes. Over time, they might even consider you mighty. Live the medicine!
