Not having a child was my greatest challenge in life
According to Dickson, his family's inability to have a child after several years was a big challenge for him. His words:
"During an interview with a CEO of a Banking firm, I was asked the question: “What has been your biggest challenge in life? I didn’t have to think long to answer that question. “Being married for 6 years and trying unsuccessfully to have kids.” There was an awkward silence in the room before he responded and said. “How have you dealt with it?” I said “It will only never happen if we stopped trying”.

"That was 4 years ago, and 10 years in total to date since my wife and I tried to have children. 2 months ago we welcomed our miracle boy into our family and what a joy he has been to us."
Don’t ever give up despite the many setbacks Mr. Dickson advises people
The latest father used the opportunity to admonish his followers never to give and not to accept rejection and failure as final. He said:
"It’s the constant month-on-month “rejection” that makes me understand that some deals will go through and others will fall through. It’s trying different things in marriage and during the journey of childbirth that teaches me that change in inevitable in business. It’s having to wake up every day despite the challenges and having to show up every time that builds resilience within me in the professional space. Maybe this isn’t for you, but for the very few people who can relate, I have one thing to say: If you’re believing for something great to happen to you, don’t ever give up despite the many setbacks. It took us 10 years, it might take you less or even longer but remember this, we’re cheering you on. Your win is not just for you but for others as well."
