I bring you greetings from Lusaka Zambia in the name of Christ Jesus my Lord. I am well and God continues to challenge me and inspire me. Recently a few things happened to me that I wish to share. The first thing is that I watched a video on You Tube of Carlton Pearson. As some of you remember, he used to be a leading preacher and has since converted to other forms of religion. I could not believe. I was so moved to tears that a man who once revered God would today question the very God he proclaimed. Which led me to one conclusion; non of us is safe or bullet proof. We must endeavor to remain steadfast and focused. The world may change but we are the salt and light of the earth. We must remain focused and never be ashamed of our faith in God and in particular in Christ.
The second thing that happened to me was that I got an email from a student at University of Zambia. This young man got 10 points and was accepted into school. School has commenced yet he cant report. He has no money and his parents have done their best. Again teary me I cried. I realized then that though I am blessed spiritually, physically and mentally, I am not as blessed financially. I think real financial blessings must change the lives of others. I want to be so blessed that I can send money to my grandmother in the village without my bank account complaining. I want to be so blessed that I can sink a borehole at an orphanage without blinking. Many of us are only as blessed as the three meals we ate yesterday but we can not change anyone's life.
Come January 2014 I will start my Africa tour to raise awareness of the educational needs across Africa and to start implementing one of my greatest dreams; to establish a scholarship for children in Africa from preschool to university. I will do it and I will do it well. I am tired of the African child being left by the wayside by broken promises and broken systems.
The last thing that tickled my feathers was the conversation with a man I recently met. This man is young probably in his forties. He owns over 20 flats. I was trying to purchase property from him and that led to our deep conversation. Have you ever met people who just sink so deep into things they immerse you and baptize you into their philosophies and ideologies? That was me at the helm of that mans power.
At the end of our chat, we concluded that you and I need to diversify our incomes. You do not need to be a one income person. You do not own one pair of shoes nor one clothing. You own many. Same with income. Don't just have one business nor one job. Do many things.
The world has changed. Do not do too many things but do enough to change your world.
I am asking for your prayers as I travel to Asia in a few weeks for work and business. I cant wait to go to that part of the world to go and be transcendent.
May God bless you and remember to take risks in business and in Life. All that I am today and all that I ever hope to be is because I took risks. Yes I have failed some times but I am also successful many times over because I take risks. The biggest risk we can take is the risk of trusting in God and allowing God to take over our lives. In the end we realize that trusting God is safer than not trusting Him. You don't have to be perfect but have a perfect hunger for true greatness.
God bless and please forward this newsletter to friends and family and encourage them to subscribe atwww.mubitacnawa.com

The 7 Indisputable, Irrevocable, Ingredients to Success: unlocking the already open doors of Africa by un-blinding the African.
By Mubita C. Nawa
I have read many books on success. Each one of them exclusive and wonderful. From books like The Capitalist Niger by Dr Chika Onyeani promoting the emancipation of the African. To The Millionaire Next Door By Thomas Stanley which promotes simplicity over extravagance. One of my fondest of Books are books Like Dig Your Wells before You are Thirsty by Harvey Markey. A book on the power of strategic networking. I can't express how I felt when I read Maximize the Moment by my former boss for nearly eight years Bishop T D Jakes who strengthens readers to capture every opportunity in their lives.
Not to bore you but a list of great books is incomplete without classics like Acres of Diamonds by Russell Conwell. It’s a fascinating book about how we often look for good things elsewhere when they are literally under our feet. My religious convictions will be betrayed if I did not mention the greatest book of all; the Rhema and the epitome, the zenith and the quintessence of all revelatory logos: the book inspired by the Master creator Himself: The Holy Bible. It’s not even a classic, its classified.
So why would I introduce this subject thus? I am glad you asked. It is to debunk a myth that has existed for many millennia. That success comes from reading. As much as I value reading and education, I must say that my 13 year experience has taught me that true success comes from doing, acting, requesting, knocking and hungering for something so bad and so long that it eventually comes to you or you go to it. Reading alone may make you a scholar but doing turns you into novelty.
1. Ingredient #1: Not Money
There are far too many people who believe that money is the key to success. We can all agree on is that money changes our lives. It enhances our standards of living. It certainly makes owning a car more enjoyable because when you have money you can afford the fuel for example. Yet money ends there.
If you travel, you will meet people who had no money and in the end became very successful. You will also meet people who had money once but in the end became very poor and lost it all. They run into money but eventually the money runs away from them. Money alone is not enough. Money may open some doors but something else. keeps them open.
Africa’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has shown significant growth over the past eight years. According to fact sheet jointly published by the United Nations Office of the Special Advisor on Africa (OSAA) and the NEPAD-OECD Africa Investment Initiative African economies are growing on average by over 5% per annum. In contrast European economies such as Greece, Italy and others with the exception of Germany, are shrinking by about the same percentage per annum. We can argue then, and I doubt that many would oppose our argument, that Africa is the next frontier of economic development. Both at the consumer level and the raw material supply level.
The problem is not whether or not we have money but rather whether we have the capacity to manage, grow and equitably distribute this money to all the one billion occupants of this continent.
2- Hunger for Success
As a child I watched in horror on our local ZBS TV the starvation of Ethiopia. I remember in1986 the release of the great song "We are the World." This song raised not only awareness but funds to help the Africa in general but in particular Ethiopia. The hunger I saw in those malnourished children and mothers and fathers was a hunger for rice, wheat, bread and water. Like any Africans our hunger starts and ends with food.
Could it be possible that there are just not enough Africans hungry for success?
My father never drunk alcohol. Yet As a child one of my best friend's father enjoyed a 5 liter container of opaque bear we called "chibuku". So Lawrence and I would take the 15minute walk to Chelstone tavern to buy the bear. At only 8 years old I would wonder why so many men, grown men, adult men. Fathers and uncles would sit in a dimly lit room, drinking all weekend long. What if we took the energy a typical man or woman puts behind their drink and social life, and exerted it into science, literature service improvement and delivery, what would it do our economies?
Some say Africa’s are under performers. I would only agree with that if I had not lived and worked abroad. I saw Africans who would dodge work in Africa work long hours abroad. I saw people who had no desire to stay a minute longer at their African job beg for extra hours on their time card abroad.
When we hunger fir success, success comes to us. Success is kike a magnet attracted by hard and smart work, but repelled by laziness and bad attitude.
3- Risk Taking
I have never been a white person. I have always been black. I was born black. I usually listen to conversations by black people about their white counterparts. They go something like this: "Whites are so stupid. Why would anyone go white water rafting, or banji jumping, or jump out of a moving plane?" I must say I too have been guilty of calling whites stupid over such baseless accusatory words. In actual fact, being White or Caucasian in Africa is synonymous with risk taking. Being black is synonymous with timidity and overly exaggerated respect.
Is courage a trait of color? Is intelligence a trait of color? To a certain degree though, it’s the whites who colonized us who made us believe that there was something wrong with the color of our skin when in fact biology teaches us that one of the reasons we do not require tanning or sun burn protection lotion is not because our skins are burnt. But it’s because we possess something right in our skins.
What is wrong and what we need to fix is not the color of our skin but the perception of risk, embracing of more adventurous activities in our lives that hiring thrill and exhilaration.
Ferdinand L. Oyono the Cameroonian writer and scholar wrote an award winning book called The Old man and the Medal. It’s a book about the awkward relationships between Africa and its colonial masters. Chinua Achebe the Nigerian scholar summarizes the lack of courage in the following quote by Okonkwo in things fall apart:
"The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart.”
― Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart
4- Being Organized
There is nothing inspiring about disorganization. There is nothing fashionable about disorganization. It is a symbol of dysfunction rather than one of pragmatism. Yet we love it so much we have even inverted or coined new phrases such as African time, Zambian time. Since when did time become regional or tribal or continental?
When the Chinese hosted 2008 Summer Olympics, they were at the time the most expensive ever. Why did the Chinese spend so much? They had a point to prove. And sometimes when you have a name to defend or name build you have to go out of your way. In the end The Beijing Olympics were renowned as some of the best organized ever. Surprisingly for me, the top ten countries in medals in China did not include any African Nation? Why? Is it that we are so bad we can’t compete? Not at all. It’s that we are so disorganized we can’t compete. A time has come for Africans to arise and get organized. We need to set the record straight being straight in our recording and planning.
5- Thinking About the Future
the beauty about the present is that it’s temporal. The beauty about the past is its past. The attractive thing about the future is that we can create it.
6- Stop Begging
if you ask a Zambian student what they want to do in life, nearly half of them will tell you they want to get employed. You can not blame them. They desire to serve under someone and one day spring into their own. The majority however desire to stay in the same place for a very long time.
7- Create Your Own Airline
We are a great people and a great nation. We can have our own airline.

By Mubita C. Nawa
Good day my great friend. It has been three weeks since I last wrote to you. Sorry for taking so long. If you missed the newsletter know that it missed you too.
Contamination is defined as the co-mingling of one subsatance with often unwanted substantances. This is sometimes deliberate and other times unintentional. If you take for example the air we breath, scientists may disagree on many things but at least they agree on the fact that pure clean oxgeen is rare these days. it is indangered by extra carbondioxide and many other ozone layer infiltrations. In the end, bad air results in poor health, and poor or low productivity in our nations and economies.
By comparison, the spirit of a human being needs to go green and be purified. As the body detoxifies itself and cleanses itself every minute and every moment, the spirit of every leader needs a self reflecting and self correcting process.
Before I become too technical allow me to define the human spirit. Its the essence of who we are. As a motor vehicle has an engine, the human being has the spirit which is host to our personality, our devine concepts, our emotions and our intuitive selves. The spirit is the fibre and the motivation for all activity. Having a contaminated spirit is similar to having a bride in a clean wedding dress playing in dirt on her wedding day. When our spirits are contaminated we loose direction and can destroy families.
Here are seven contaminations you must rid your spirit of.
1- Bitterness: Bitterness is like chili. You only need a bit of it. We become bitter the most when we are betrayed, disappointed and frustrated that things are not going our way. As justified as we may be, bitterness has never built anyone. So we may just rethink all this by letting go.
2- Laziness: There are few people who can confess that they are lazy. Most would professionalise it and come up with wonderful excusses. Yet laziness sets in when our spirits are contaminated and we stop believing, dreaming and becoming. We settle and accept the now as our final place.
3- Infidelity: this is a tough one and a bitter one for many. An infedile is one who diverts from ethics and values they trully believe in or should be believing in. We become infediles when we betray our true callings. I will leave it at that.
4- Discontentment or ungratefulness: As many of you may know I have four children. One of the things I do not like is when my own child cant even say thank you. To say thank you is to appreciate the sourse and to recognise that there is potential for more where that came from. When is the last time you said thank you?
5- Division: How many things are you working on? Division comes up when we stop embrassing our first love and first expectation. How many times have people gone to the market to buy one thing and forgot what it is they went to buy? When we stop being focussed we contaminate our spirits to a point of delapidation.
6- Gossip and Rumor mongering: I used to be 100% against gossip. But lately I have been defenseless to the suttle form that comes as testimonies and information sharing. It creeps in and before you know it you are gone. Gossip is like smoking cigarettes. You dont start by smoking five packs a day. You start by skoking one stick at a time. Before long, you are a chain smoker.
7- Stubbonness: the refusal to recognise our own mistakes is stubbonness. No one is perfect. So we must all humble ourselves and be willing to be corrected. I have never met a stubbon person who was consistently wise but I have met plenty wise people who were consistently humble.
Conclusion: In order to purify our spirits we must check our attitudes. We must call upon God to correct us. We must like David in the bible pray the Psalm 51 prayers. We all need a correct spirit reinserted, reignited and re calibrated in us until we shine again. God bless you and just remember, as every good computer needs a software that protects it from viruses so you too need protection. God bless.

There is a Lie Between you and your true destiny and potential
By Mubita C. Nawa
My dear friend good evening. I just have a few moments today. So I will go straight to my point. There is something that stops you from realizing your true potential. Something you have believed.
Take a quick look at all the things around you from your computer to your car your home your clothes your diet and all else. Ask yourself "Is that really the best that I deserve? Is that the best I could do?"
Today I realized that I need new socks. Somehow my socks are mismatched. It's normal that with time socks divorce. One gets lost the other goes with the wrong laundry or whatever. So here I am one of Africa's leading stage invigorators wearing mismatched socks. And I ask myself, "Mubita honestly, is this the best shot?"
And my answer is an obvious 'no'. Then I dig deeper and I realize there is a lie I believed from childhood about being ok with substandard pressing irons, vehicles without starter motors, four plate stoves that only had one plate working and geysers that only had cold water. That was a lie between me and my destiny. If you are not careful you will mistake lies for truth and truth for the impossible.
Tonight my great friend I ask you to break the lie in your life and be the best you were created to be in every area of your life. I am standing in the gap with you believing that the next three months of your life will transcend anything you have ever done. I am even more excited about your next five to seven years. If you destroy the lie in your mind you will achieve more over the next seven years than you have ever achieved in all your life.
May God bless you and go and destroy that lie in Jesus name.

7 Secretes to a Successful Week
By Mubita C. Nawa
Many people wait to change their lives in January using annual resolutions. Yet as nodal as that may sound, it is futile as it's like plowing, planting and harvesting your crop in one breath. God wants you to have something great happen in your life all that time. My formula and suggestion is that at least every seven days in your life there must be a victory. This means after 52 victories in a year you are ready to have a memorable life.
Do you want to know why a lot of people are scared of retiring? It's because they lived such boring lives for years and each week went by without anything exciting. I speak victory in your life. Here are my seven life proven tricks that I use weekly to ensure I live a life of success.
1. Play to your strengths
a. You have a lot of things that work in your life and those that do not work. So focus on what works and work it. That is your strength. We all have weaknesses. Ignore those who highlight your weaknesses as though they have none. Work your magic and see God grow your life.
2. Don't play the game let the game come to you.
a. Sometimes we push too much. We want to sound sophisticated and educated. In my thirteen year experience, I have discovered that simplicity in business and in life is the key to success. Enjoy the thrill of opportunities coming to you because you are so good at what you do. Let the game come to you and be master in your territory.
3. Ride out the storm
a. Storms are part of life. Misunderstandings with loved ones, friends, colleagues and enemies are part of life. Stand strong and know that everything passes. I mean everything. A few weeks ago I went through a small challenge. Today I am so glad I went through that. It has helped me a lot. But it's over now. It did not feel like it would be over then but it is over.
4. Do it all and do it well
a. You are better than this. Take your life to a new dimension. Go to that dimension where you do better, quicker, smarter and wiser. Do it well.
5. Search for the perfect spot
a. There are sweet spots in life. There are pressure points and trigger points. There are "G" spots all around us and we must pursue it. Look for things that bring you the biggest gratification. I enjoy driving long distances. But sometimes when I am tired I just look for a sweet spot to park my car and relax. It may be for just two minutes but the rejuvenation we get from perfect spots takes us a long way.
6. Create systems that will outlive you
a. You don't have to do it all. Success is about creating systems in business and in life where you do not have to be present for things to happen. But things happen because you have created a system to sustain them.
7. Be feisty
a. Be vigorous, elaborate and deliberate. Don't apologize for who you are. Be steadfast and work diligently with each day as if it were your last.
Do not wait for January in order to be resolute. Be resolute on a weekly basis. From today on-wards each week will be filled with announcements and joy in your life. Be great and be gracious. You are a champion and never forget that.
1. This coming Sunday is a special Sunday at our 15:00hrs Sunday class. It is our visitor's day and each one is bringing a visitor. I am inviting you to be my guest. We meet every Sunday for a free business motivation at 15:00hrs in Woodlands at Inspire Leadership School. Call 0978730723 to let someone know you will be coming.

Be all you can be
By Mubita C. Nawa
Good morning friends and champions. It is a beautiful Friday morning here in Zambia where birds fly backwards. I bring you greetings from my family. My wife and I just had a wonderful discussion about our future and our business ventures. Earlier in the day I was romantic enough to send a text to her just reminding her that I plan to grow old with her. I think it worked.
As I write this letter to you, I am thinking about my message tomorrow at ZICTA where I will be motivating the men at on so many issues including sexuality, finances and hygiene. I can't wait to stand and speak there.
Earlier today, we sold another car in our ever growing business of motor vehicle financing. About four months ago I wrote to you telling you about how my vehicle was stolen on December 28th, 2012. Now I am providing motor vehicles to others. One of the customers we supplied a vehicle to last weekend is a young girl who without our help would probably have waited a long time before she could have had a car.
Today was the final inspection day at our driving school which is our latest business venture. We passed with flying colors thanks to God. We have started a unique driving school which provides quality vehicles, quality training and excellent customer services. We are almost fully booked for next week with just two slots remaining. What an amazing accomplishments.
Our Inspire Leadership School officially closed yesterday with closing celebrations in the preschool section and closing reflections in the primary and secondary section. Today we already started renovations and building our new classroom and office space in readiness for next term at the two complexes. We are excited about the quality education we provide at Inspire Leadership School with parents now sending their children to our schools from all over Zambia. We recently enrolled a second grader into boarding. That is exciting as more parents are turning to boarding schools. In a few months my wife and I will be announcing new business ventures that will be just as exciting.
We are excited about the FREE Sunday afternoon business class we are providing every Sunday at 15:00hrs. This class is designed to give back to the community weekly and to empower people at their points of need. Talk about dedication to transforming lives.
I always wonder about one thing; why is that some people find it so easy to succeed while others can't even swat a fly the right way? Why is it that one person's dream is easy to accomplish while others don't even dream?
My answer to this question is simple. Many people in this life have not permitted themselves to dream and to explore their deep potential. We are great creatures and great men and women of God designed to prosper. Many people feel they were born to be last rather than to be first.
This weekend I am praying for you to be all you can be.
How can you be all? Take risks. Learn to step out of your comfort zone and go where others have never gone. Learn to be unique and different. Learn to strive higher and wider each time. Learn to cast your nets into the deep. Stop depending on your education alone for education is not the only key to success. A great attitude, a structured approach to life and a relentless faith are all Gods keys to success.
I will end by reminding you that success is never a guarantee. But failure is guaranteed if you don't follow the rules of success. If you don't attend classes that can change your life then your life will always be the same. If you do not ask the right questions then ignorance will be your position. If you do not make an effort to mix with the right people then the wrong people will be your friends.
I pray for you my friend. Be all you can be. Eliminate excuses in your life and just try something so you can fly. Don't cry or be shy. Just be all you can be.
As for me and my household, we are so determined to overcome any obstacle in our path and be all that God wants us to be. We are all special but we must activate that specialness by being all we can be. You can do it and I believe in you.
God bless you and thank you for reading. Send this to a friend and let them be blessed as well. www.mubitacnawa.com

PRESS STATEMENT REGARDING MEDIA HOUSE PUBLICATION TONIGHT
By Mubita C. Nawa
Good evening great gallants and friends. Tonight our name and car business was dragged into an unverified story.
One of our family friends recently purchased a car from us. It was her second car after she liked the first car we sold to her as a family earlier in the year. In the second case our friend did not appreciate the three vehicles we offered her. She used one of the vehicles on a trip outside town and the vehicle came back damaged. We offered to fix it and she agreed. When time to deliver the vehicle came she refused it. She refused even a higher priced vehicle that we felt would suite her new expectations. Our point to her was that if she needed a new car she needed to pay the correct price for it.
Eventually she asked for a refund. We offered her the refund cash on Friday of K16,500.00. This refund was less K1,500.00 which was a charge for using the car out of town, the damage to the car and the service of the car which she had authorized.
She rejected the K16,500 refund on Friday and opted to take us to the law enforcement where we appeared yesterday. The law enforcement mediated and said we refund her K17,500. We agreed on the dates and amount for the payment of the refund which would be done at the police. We did not know that by that time the media were already involved. When the media called us we refused to comment because as far as we were concerned this was a private matter that was already handled and settled.
As we stand here today, we have already consulted with our lawyers as well as with the key people in our business. We believe there are good people in life and we also believe there are those who desire to achieve their goals around good people.
We will pray for this young lady who we have not wronged in any way.
Over the past six years, our business in Zambia has grown so much because of our commitment to excellent customer service and quality product delivery. We are aware of the impact of such a media publication which was handled unprofessionally by the journalists on duty that day. We understand the desperation of some individuals to score homeruns.
To all our clients, friends and family, we thank you for your support and we look forward to answering your questions over the next few days and weeks. We shall use this chapter in our lives to inspire people in business and in life to watch their backs better as they relate with different people.
My family and I trusted this young lady and we will continue to pray for her joy and success. God encourages us to pray even for those who seek to harm us. Scripture encourages believers to be steadfast and we have never lost sight of our trust in God. We shall soldier on beyond any quagmire.
Thank you and God bless you.

The Spirit of Entrepreneurship: what they never teach you in school.
By Mubita C. Nawa
A motivational speaker is like a farmer; when a famer sees a huge piece of land he sees a harvest. A motivational speaker sees success when he sees a spirit of entrepreneurship.
Just some quick weekend notes to share with you. Friday evening I attended a wedding at government complex for my niece Lubasi who is now Mrs. Kumwenda. Congratulations to the newly wedded couple. I spoke briefly at the weeding on a topic entitled "Finding Your Purpose." It was a heartwarming experience and I must confess I danced so much. I did everything from the 'kopala swag' to 'moon walking' and to my favorite, 'the split'. I enjoy enjoying my life. Today which is father's day I went with my children to see a great movie called "After Earth" by Will Smith. Happy father's day to all the fathers.
The article today is about one of the world's most important spirits; the spirit of entrepreneurship. A spirit is a fundamental and precept of something. It is the basis, the meaning, the air, the grit and the fire behind anything we do.
I propose to you that everything in life has a spirit behind it. Politics have a spirit, diplomacy has a spirit, prostitution has a spirit and so too does entrepreneurship. My aim today is to briefly lay plain the jazz behind entrepreneurship. In schools they teach us business plans, financial tables and logarithms. They teach us ratios and formula in business. So I will leave that to the classroom. My goal today is to touch the untouchable, to shine light on the disposition and energy of a true entrepreneur.
Allow me to start by sharing the story I scantly allude to in my preamble. This car and motor vehicle financing business I have started is bringing so much joy and happiness to my life. It is exposing me to earnest people you would not ordinarily call great until you hear their stories.
So yesterday I met a lady by the name Elizabeth. Elizabeth is buying a car through our vehicle financing. So she invited me to her home to do the paperwork and to receive her deposit. Call after call she guided me to her home. My vehicle which had just been washed was swallowing dust left right and center. The low profile tires were not helping as I hit stone after stone. Never giving up nor worrying about the hits my car was sustaining. I was a hunter and I had my catch in sight.
"Mr. Nawa did you see the turn right after the golf club?" She called. "Yes Eliza I did and I took the turn as you instructed me." I answered without revealing the duress in my voice lest I sounded like a wet blanket. I did not let my discouragement show. Time, opportunity and purpose had collided. She needed a car and I needed a customer. She sounded every bit like my kind of customer. The spirit of entrepreneurship understands its kind and never medals in markets that it does not belong in.
After thirty minutes I saw her in a red jersey as she had described. Her potential and my conscription met. Entrepreneurship was being 'consummated' right in our eyes.
The spirit of entrepreneurship looks for people who are willing to get out of their comfort zone to create chances for themselves. Many years ago I heard a story of a small Asian business man who was being swallowed by a new multimillion dollar complex that was being built right next door to his family business. Then on the official launch of the mega store he put a sign up on his door that read "main entrance." That entrepreneur refused to quit. The spirit of entrepreneurship is self motivated.
The story Eliza told me moved me to tears. She started her business a decade ago with two dollars (seven kwacha). Today she sells everything from game meat to second hand clothes and shoes. The car she was buying is her second car yet does not even have a driver's license yet. Everything in her life was against her including relatives that called her names. When she started her business her highest education was fifth grade. But through determination she has since completed twelfth grade and is now looking forward to going to college.
Can I get an amen for the spirit of entrepreneurship.
Put it simply, entrepreneurship is baldness, organization, patience, endurance, creativity, engagement and participation in the welfare of your own life.
No one will ever make your life great unless you make it great yourself. Stories such as those of Elizabeth and many others I hear week after week move me to continue providing opportunities and inspiration. You are well able. Don't give up. You may have wasted opportunities in the past but it's not over. Get up; decide how you are going to take on this spirit that brings so much happiness. Concern yourself and make a difference. Your family is counting on you and so am I.
My final thought. Entrepreneurship takes away excuses, fear and stagnation. God has so much ahead of you. Some of you on this newsletter are so comfortable in miserable lives. Sometimes that is why God allows us to fall in trouble and in problems so that we can activate the giant in us. Giants are activated by desperation and by choices to make our future better and brighter. I never thought I would say this. But thank God my car was stolen on December 28th, 2012. In one night I lost close to $20,000. But by Gods grace God has shown me how to make that kind of money in a week. You will recover whatever the enemy has stolen from you as long as you allow the spirit of entrepreneurship to consume you.
I pray for you my friend that the better you may arise. The spirit of entrepreneurship creates opportunities, sees windows open before they are open and leaves a legacy for others to benefit. Never look back one day and wish you had done more with what God gave you. Look around you now and do the very best right now.
My name is Mubita C. Nawa and I am high on the spirit of entrepreneurship.

PRICELESS LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE BLESSINGS CENTER
By Mubita C. Nawa
"You can only build something massive by starting with something small to effectively close the distance." - Danny Iny, founder of Firepole Marketing
Good morning champions. It is a great day in Lusaka. Just returned from Livingstone where I spent quality time training staff from the World Bank. God is surely faithful and continues to open doors in our lives. Thanks aunty Catherine and I hope your flight was good. You and your team were amazing. I lodged in a wonderful presidential room and did not want to check out not even once.
Today I desire to briefly draw your attention to one of Zambia's greatest marvels. It is a church cathedral of a multi facet and multi use dimension. It seats on a five acre land (my own estimate) at the Matero and Emmasdale border on Lumumba road. The purpose of this article is to shine light on a great work in our own land and to inspire you to shine your own shine in whatever you may be doing. You can not be a n effective leader if you never stop to recognize the good that others do.
As far as I can remember, that building (The Blessings Center) was always under construction. It attracted so much scorn and ridicule from all corners of life except the people who where building it. Two years ago I was in that service for the official launch when thunder and rain came down on all of us as my mouth fell to the ground in disbelief. One person died in that moment and I traveled at my own expense to Kitwe for his burial and to this day that funeral remains the saddest funeral I have ever attended outside my own family bereavements.
Here are some priceless lessons that I harvest.
1. Never stop building no matter how long it takes: That building has taken the Bread of Life Church family at least fifteen years to build. But they never relented. They kept on building. They did not let the negative words from within and within quench their ambers.
2. Don't depend on anyone to build: One of the reasons the building took so long was that there has never been any major foreign donor. All the funds were raised locally with a weekly fundraising drive. Local people sacrificed and look at what God has done.
3. Keep on preaching as you build: The Hour of Blessing continued on TV. Most of you may not be aware but The Hour of Blessing is the oldest, most consistent, televangelism program on TV in Zambia. Sometimes because we are building we stop living. We stop doing the very things that make us who we are.
4. Ignore the critics: What did we all not call them? Every name in the book of hate and doubt was used. We misunderstood and we laughed. But they kept on going.
5. Dream Bigger than your resources but remain practical: Five years ago bishop Imakando personally took me on a tour of the building. We stood above the balcony and he gleaned as he showed me where the people would seat and where the sound system would be. I never understood fully what he saw. He sounded big but the situation on the ground was so desperate. He never showed it. Now when I visit the cathedral, I can now see what he was showing me five years ago. My cognizance is five years late. His vision was many years ahead. Sometimes the reason misunderstand you is because you are many years ahead of the ordinary person. Don't relent. They will see when you are done building. Can I get an amen?
6. Do it in Style: I don't even need to say much on this. You just need to go and visit the place for yourself and see.
7. Keep on Working and Improving: Yesterday I visited the Blessings Center. It is still a hive of activity. It is looking so beautiful and so magnificent. The car park is an absolute marvel.
8. Use professionals: Often we cut corners and we engage people who are not qualified in the process of building. Invest in peoples experience and pay the premium price so you can save time and usually money as well.
CONCLUSION: I come from a great nation Zambia and it does not always recognize how great it is. The Blessings Center reminds me of another great building The Government Complex which took over thirty years to complete. For years The Government Complex remained in ruins. It was a vision of yesterday. Then someone decided to build and rebuild and remodel. I don't know what your life is going through but it is never too late.
Stop listening to people who have never even built a dog house in their lives. Start building your own blessings center and your own government complex. The beauty about building is that each building has its own plan. Even if buildings may have a similar plan they sit on individual plots or pieces of land. You are unique for a reason so don't stop building.
I can't end without thanking God for the visionary of The Bread of Life Churches Bishop Joe Imakando. The man is just off the hook and is a leading star in ministry, enterprise and purpose. We all just love him and weather we are on roof tops with him, in a boardroom or listening to him on TV, he remains a father, a pillar and an inspiration to many people around the world.
May God bless you and your family and one day your own blessings center will shine and bring glory to God and to your family.
