Nigerian author and activist, Reno Omokri, has stressed the importance of being refined in a recent social media post.
The author made his point on Instagram, where he used the current crude oil price as a fitting illustration to drive his point home.
Crude oil sells for $51.62 but once refined goes for $150, which is three times its initial value.
Outlining the important ways to be refined, Omokri noted that the way people dress, act and use language will affect their value.
Read what he wrote below:
"Today, Crude Oil sells for $51.62. Once you refine it, its value increases to $150. Just by refining yourself, you can triple your value. Dress refined. Don’t sag your pants. That is not COOL. That is FOOL, Act refined. Don’t give people attitude. Give them altitude. Let them see that your character is up there. Use refined language. Avoid slangs and expletives. The F and S words should never come out of your mouth. Do this and your value goes up."
