Finding the Missing Link in Your Life

By Mubita C. Nawa

There comes a time in every man and woman's life when they have to ask themselves deep introspective questions. Questions that can be uncomfortable at times but necessary none the less. Why am I sad? Why am I the way I am? Why does my life seem cylindrical or circular? What must I do to move forward? These questions will lead you to the missing link in your life.

Few people realize the happiness that comes with the realization of purpose and vision combined.

The first time I purchased a brand new car was in 2000. It was a squeaky Toyota Corolla with almost zero kilometers. I was the first driver ever (except for the test drivers, cleaners and official Toyota staff). It was twenty five years old at the time. The car was flawless, impeccable and simply a delight to drive. It was different and in sharp contrast to my first car ever; a Fiat 127 I purchased from someone in Lusaka. People usually talk of second hand vehicles. But my Fiat was probably a four hundredth hand vehicle. Very few things in it worked. I was 21 when I purchased it. So it mattered less. I was just glad to drive a car even if it did not drive (Be careful you may be happy with things that don't even work).

Here are seven suggested missing links in many people's lives. It is up to you to do a self-analysis and determine which one is synonymous with you.

Link # 1: HAPPINESS- Talking about happiness is similar to talking about sex in a marriage counseling session. Everyone looks at you like you are guilty. Yet happiness is as relevant in our lives as oxygen. You must find happiness. Work to keep your happiness and protect it from people who want to see you sad and miserable. Without happiness, we lack the fuel to move forward.

Link # 2: INGENUITY - Many have ideas but no courage to start. Even those who know do not want to because they are scared. No matter how great your idea is if you do not start you will always give good things to others.

Link # 3: OPERATIONAL NETWORKING- I have enjoyed my stay in South Africa. This place is big. It feels like me. It is amazing. You know what is greater, the people here work in teams. They understand that no one succeeds alone. You need to plug yourself to people who are going somewhere. I promise you God will not bless you sufficiently if you are just a lone ranger.

Link # 4: GREAT RELATIONSHIPS- There is no better way to say this. But being in a poor relationship drains us of energy. Energy we should be using to move forward. Be careful who you commit to as you may just be saying goodbye to your bright future.

Link # 5: POOR WORKMANSHIP- Have you ever seen a new building that looked old or an old building that looked new? The difference is quality of workmanship. Always remember that cheap is expensive.

Link # 6: LACK OF FOCUS- I enjoy the work of snipers. Snipers stay in one place looking in their binoculars waiting for that target to materialize. As a result they earn more. In 2015 you can't be everywhere. Be in specific places and do your best to maximize your results and potential.

Link # 7: ABILITY TO SAY NO- In 2015 the biggest yes you may say may be a NO. You do not have to be difficult. But you do have to be selective. You have one life and you must maximize it.



Each human being is endowed with gifts, talents and proclivities that if exploited can take you to the highest mountain in the world. The excitement of pursuing something that one is passionate about brings such joy and happiness.

Missing links come in different shapes and sizes. What matters is identifying what it is that bothers you and drips your energy. I pray that God reveals to you what you need today so that you can be successful and happy in future.

God bless.



-          We are five days away from the biggest motivational and inspiration time of your life. I won't say much. But I pray that you make it on Saturday January 17th at Government Complex in Lusaka. 9:00am to 11:00am

"The people you interact with will define your limits or will inspire you to go to the next level in your life. Your attitude to that will either be defiance or conformity." Mubita C. Nawa

The Stage is set for a Great 2015

May I welcome many of you who are new to the family of Stand CHAMPIONS News Letter Nuggets. Mubita You will receive this letter weekly on every Tuesday. Please feel free to encourage friends to sign up and it is completely free. Every leader needs a inspiration and motivation. I pray that we will continue to inspire each other.

On September 18th last year I had announced my desire to step out of public life. After fifteen years of traveling and speaking I realized I had gotten tired of public life and wanted a little privacy. Clearly I was wrong. My life now is Gods and other peoples. I still have my life but I am also a servant to the people.

And that is what I will do. Not for the next fourteen years but for the rest of my life. I will do the one thing I was born to do and I will do it fervently for it is my number one passion.

"You never know what you have until you almost retire from it. Going into retirement sounded great. But then I realized the people were not going to let me. Because God was still using me in their lives and I was being enriched by their lives too. We were connected by destiny. I am so glad to be reconnected to once again." Mubita C. Nawa

Odds represent boundaries and limitations. These limitations are often a result of defined parameters in our lives. Often these are picked up from social circles, spiritual associations and even intellectual stimulation.

The people you interact with will define your limits or will inspire you to go to the next level in your life. Your attitude to that will either be defiance or conformity. A lecturer at a certain university always welcomed his freshman students with the following words:

"Today you are at university and I do not care where you were yesterday. In my 25years of lecturing I have only had a few excellent students. The rest have been failures and I don't think today will be different."

This lecturer was renowned for brutality and negativity. His mental conditioning dictated that his greater satisfaction was derived from failure rather than success.

"If you are not careful, people with negative mindsets will limit your growth, your faith and your reality. It is your responsibility to defy this odd. If something does not fit say it. But if it fits don't let go of it." Mubita C. Nawa

The question of how is both easy and difficult. But in order for you to make this year a great you must be cognizant of the beacons or the corners of your limitations so you can quickly move them. If you are scared of heights you must defy that fear by finding yourself at a mountain side or on a rooftop. It begins by identifying the what Mubita then the how will follow.

Speaking of the What, How, and the When, I am so excited about the first motivational talk in 2015. It feels as though it is my first ever. I will be at Government Complex on January 17th 2015 from 9:00am to 11:00am. I am personally inviting you to join us. It will be a morning you will not want to miss. You and your friends, family and colleagues can all come.

The talk will focus on how to achieve the exact results you want in 2015. Many people missed their goals in 2014. And they need to know why they missed those so it does not happen again. I will be on top of my game for this historic moment. You certainly won't want to miss two hours of life changing nuggets.

One of the reasons we sometimes get discouraged is because we allow discouragement to set foot in our hearts. We permit the defined reality of our "lecturers" to speak in our minds. In 2015 you have to set new appetite levels. Bring yourself to the front of all things and overcome the very discouragements that surround you. You are a blessed person of grace and integrity. But your appetite will lead you to new things. When you want more you achieve more. If you are satisfied with little nothing will matter in your life.

To return to the story of that lecturer; some of the students in that class believed in the set standard of failure that they found. They tailor-made their input according to the expectations of others (they feared to offend anyone). So they stopped at the first discouragement. But I can confirm that a few of those students (for some special reason) decided to go against the flow. They decided that there was always a possibility, a way, and provision wherever there was a way.

Today I urge you to go back into your prayer room and recommit this great year to God. Tell Him that this is not the year for quitters nor is it a year for the timid. But that this is the year for defying the odds of life. If it's medical, defy it. If it is physical defy it. Whatever it is, I am praying for your spirit to believe and for your stamina to withstand- go out there and defy the odds of life in 2015.

May God bless you and see you on the 17th of January. Make plans to attend and together we will answer the what, where, when and how of your 2015. This is the first year for the rest of your life and I am here to break it down for you. Talk to you next week when we discuss 'Eliminating the Missing Link in Your Life'.

Let them deal with it


By Mubita C. Nawa


There are people who love you and those who don't. Often we work so hard to be liked when we can just do what God wants us to do and the right people will come our way.

Never compromise on who you are to accommodate those who may never even like you no matter what you ever did. Here is a simple recipe on how to deal with those who may dislike you.


Forgiveness is a liberator. Let them be. Do not hold on to anger as there are no permanent enemies in life. People who may dislike you forget that they too have human weaknesses that we too may not like about them. So forgive them and let it go. It is for you freedom and liberation.


Success is a painful thing to failures. So pile up success and let failures be. Failures (and there are no permanent failures) are those who refuse to rise from their setbacks. And we all experience setbacks in our lifetime.


The Kenyans say even silence is a defense. It is painful to see people gossip behind your back. But let it go. God will fight your battles. Listen to some of the things people have to say because no man is an island. But never dwell on that. Don't give attention to cheap shots whose goal is to make you fall from your podium of grace.


There is no such thing as bad publicity my friend. As long as you are being talked about your name is moving forward. What we must do is repent from our mistakes and change our lives. But there after you have no control. If I got pregnant (and I have never been pregnant) out of wedlock and have a child in the process. I have repented of my wrongs and have moved on. But you dislike me for that, then you are the one who must deal with that. As for me I am raising a brilliant child who I love and who I believe positive things for. So go ahead and advertise me all you want.

Their talking about you is helping you grow, mature and humble yourself. Most of all learn from them. Share this if you like it. You may bless someone.


Life is not perfect. Adam and Eve brought us challenges and trouble. But it is this trouble and these challenges that make us who we are; human. Anyone who pretends otherwise is not real.


May God bless you and enjoy the gift of life, the zest and zeal of getting up and the vivacity of believing God for a better tomorrow. I will see you on top where champions dwell.

Discover Your Passion

8 Ways to Discover Your Passion and Live a Life You Love BY Ashley Wilhite 1. Slow down. When we slow down, we are able to tap into the best version of ourselves, which is most often when we find the answers we’ve been searching for. This might mean practicing yoga, going for daily walks, or setting aside time each day to meditate. Slowing down allows you to quiet the outside voices and listen to yourself. 2. Change your story. We all tell ourselves stories about who we are, what we’re capable of, and what we deserve. If we can identify our self-limiting stories (I’m not good enough; I don’t deserve to be happy, etc.), then we can begin writing new stories that are grounded in confidence and courage, and map out actions that move us from one to the other. 3. Own your uniqueness. We are here for a reason. No one else has your unique blend of talents, wisdom, strengths, skills, and creativity. We all have something great to offer, and learning to accept and own what makes you unique is crucial to sharing your gifts with the world. 4. Cultivate confidence. If we are continually telling ourselves we can’t, then we will never believe we can. There is a chance you may fail, but it will be impossible to succeed if you don’t believe in yourself. You can create affirmations, focus on the things you want, or make a vision board that shows your future success. 5. Find the themes. Recognizing the recurring themes in our lives creates a pattern for us to either follow or change. What themes or lessons seem to constantly surface in your life? What are you drawn to again and again? What areas of life seem to be full of discomfort and pain? What areas are full of joy and light? 6. Write. Ideas flow more freely when we write without an agenda. New inspiration may appear unexpectedly and it becomes easier to connect the dots. Spend a few minutes of quality time each day with a pen and paper allowing yourself to process your thoughts without influence from the outside world. 7. Focus on the fun. Too often we get wrapped up in the expectations we set for ourselves. We focus on the details and the to-do lists instead of what is most important. What do you love to do? What makes you smile? If money were limitless, what would you be doing today? 8. Push past fear. It’s so seductive to tell ourselves that’s we’ll go after what we want when we have more experience, more money, or more time, but the truth is, that will never happen. We must identify these excuses as masks for our fear. It’s only when we get clear on our fears and recognize how it is holding us back, we can begin moving forward.

A new post for you from Mubita C. Nawa Business Ideas for YOUTHS By Mubita C. Nawa First thing first. This post is for those who are hungry for more. Let's drop this like its hot. 5 BUSINESS LAWS 1. A tree is better climbed from the roots going up. 2. Profit is not just money. 3. A little profit is better than no profit. 4. Experience is not just a great teacher its an investment. 5. No illegal businesses. Zero. 6 REASONS TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS 1. Freedom of choice and of management. 2. Unlimited income. 3. Respectability. 4. Diversity of income and better spread of risks. 5. Stability. 8 Reasons Why 80% of SME's fail in the first five years. 1. Greed. If you run before you walk you know what that does. 2. No mentorship. 3. Over commitment. 4. Lack of sufficient research. 5. Over confidence. 6. Poor strategy. 7. Over borrowing. Be careful with borrowing even money for pencils and pens in your business. Remember the borrower is always a slave to the lender (Proverbs 22:7). 8. Pride. Business is for the humble. Showing off is for music videos on not real life. REALITY CHECK 1. Your parents money is not your money. Your parents money is also being eyed by your grand parents, lawyers and many others. 2. Hips and Lips don't pay bills. You won't always be this cute. Fine nails, fine this and fine salt (lol) will one day end. 3. You are young once. Start now and see God take you places. 4. There are fewer and fewer jobs. In 1972/1979 Zambia had 500,000 formal jobs with a population of two million. Today Zambia has K700,000 formal jobs with six and half times the population. At this rate by the year 2044 Zambia will have about 1.7 million formal jobs with a population of 59million. 5. Successful people rarely tell you where the honey came from. If you don't research no one will help you. 4 INSPIRATIONS ON STARTING YOUR BUSINESS 1. Always start small. Facebook,, Virgin this or that all started small. Why is it that you mind starting small but praise others who do? 2. Seek your own idea. I get asked all the time, "what business can I do." Quiet frankly if you have to ask what food you must it you are probably not hungry. 3. You can't be Lazy. Businesses are marathons. Tryathorons and Iron contests. If you allow laziness to come in you may not succeed. 4. Research. In the multitude of counsel there is wisdom. Seek help. 10 EASY TO START BUSINESSES Remember any business that you can't control or manage is not for you. Always remember that. 1. CLEANING TOILETS- How many dirty toilets do you know? Lol. As if they are people. On a serious note, we all complain about dirty toilets but who is ready to make money out of it? 2. RESTAURANT- Mobile restaurants are in. You can make so much money feeding people. Make sure you compliy with council ordinances though. 3. HAIR PRODUCTS AND HAIR CARE. We all want to look good and most people are willing to invest in their looks. Be careful here though. You want to control a lot of what goes on. 4. AIRTIME SELLING. Small profit but great business. I spend close to K7,000 a month on airtime. Imagine if you only supplied me. 6. MIDDLE MAN/AGENT Just find a buyer and link them to a supplier and eventually you win. All business by the way is based on this philosophy. We buy and sale to and from agents. Shoprite and Walmart are middle people. Some even buy from people who bought from Shoprite. 7. HOSPITALITY- Your smile is worth millions. 8. TRANSPORTATION- Be careful though with minibuses. They come with panadol and asprin. 9. CONSULTANCY- Tuition is consultancy. 10. RECYCLING- GO GREEN. I am exhausted. I wish this was a live talk. But I pray you are blessed. Remember business is a very personal thing. Only you can fully decide what you want. If one business fails go to the next. Experience is an investment into your future. God bless.

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am currently away concluding some work assignments. I shall return soon. Recently I gave a lecture on Enterprise Risk Management. In it I talked about the risks that come with pursuing your own dream. One of the businesses I started in 2013 has exposed me to some of such risks. We designed a business that would help people achieve their dreams of car ownership. We succeeded in empowering many who still enjoy that benefit. Unfortunately along the way we were defrauded of thousands of dollars that were both ours and our clients. A matter which we communicated to nearly two dozen clients who were affected.

My absence over the past few weeks has not helped much. I am fully responsible for the information gap created by my absence.

We have soldiered on to right the missteps of our journey. It has been a difficult time for me and an introduction to unchartered personal and corporate experiences.

Many companies have gone under in the world and in my country. From airlines to energy companies to simple store front shops. Any company that goes under dashes many hopes. Ours is no exception and we deeply regret this. It is our prayer that the homes and individuals we have affected continue to see the positive conclusion we also see.

Speculations and rumours are part of any private citizen's life or public figures domain. We treat these as other individual's rights to self-expression.

I look forward to returning and to addressing questions that any significant matter raises.

I ask for your prayers and for your consideration of my entitlement to privacy and to the communication of my side of the events.

May God bless you all and remember what makes us truly great is not how we climbed the last mountain but how we scale the trials of the valley ahead of us.

Be the Great Person You Are

A new post for you from Mubita C. Nawa To become somebody great you must despise the mediocre person you have been in the past. To become somebody noble you must forgive yourself for the mistakes you have made. To become someone legendary, you must learn the art of opening doors for others. Greatness is both a destiny and a choice.

The Better You; How to realise your brighter side this week

By Mubita C. Nawa

The morning began at 4:20am today. I was quickly in the car to be about my business. One phone call to my driver. In minutes we had converged by Crossroads Filling Station refuelling all our school buses. I was ready. So were they. My head driver shook his car so it could fill to the bream. One by one they sped off yonder to fetch the precious children who attend our schools.

I sat there alone after they were gone. I often get amazed at God’s work in my life and other people’s lives. We have been fortunate and blessed. It’s our last week of school. We are truly blessed and set up for greatness. We started this school five years ago with just six children.

All the buses are back. All the children are in. All the children’s attention focused on me. Two hours later after my pre-dawn call, I was conducting chapel and devotion. “Good morning leaders.” I greeted them as if I was a king-pin. “Good morning Mr. Nawa.” They answer in unison like an orchestra resounding to a maestros call. They captivate me as much as I do them. They symbolise hope in my life as much as I symbolise mentor-ship and transformational ecclesiastical vigour. Together we converge at our common point of inspiration. We dance in the heavens as angels celebrate our efforts. Efforts to positively commingle and be each other’s catalysts and keeper. Even the greatest among us need stimulus.

Each one of us needs a person or persons who inspire us. We need someone who can provoke us to great works. Even a green plant needs sunlight. Even a fish needs oxygen. Even a great horse needs a jockey.

The simplest way to discover the better you is by finding a person, a group or a situation that inspires you. The greatness in you demands greatness in your environment.

Today in my brief letter, I came to remind you that there is a better you. There is a brighter tomorrow. Your story cannot end today. This is just the beginning of a greater chapter in your life.

I will pray for you as you soldier on. I will speak favour in your life that victories may be certain in your life. I will ask God to strengthen your inner resolve. That your neck bends not and your feet falter not.

You are a star destined for the galaxies. You are an arrow shot in the sky to shine and to glow. You are a brilliant person who has just had one or two challenges but those do not define yourself. You are promotion destined material scheduled to be elevated.

This week may it represent your catching up week. Everything lost shall be recovered and everything fallen shall rise. What stands shall be strengthened. Even your enemies will return and apologise. Even those who doubted you will express their faith in you and your abilities.

God bless you my champion friend and never forget how great you are.

Happy Valentines

Happy Valentines

Greetings to you my legendary friend. This week I had the pleasure of speaking at chapel and devotion at Inspire Leadership School. On Saturday I was a guest on a TV show called Lets Talk with Mary. It was an amazing week.

I desire to conlude this week by sending you a message of love and encouragement. I will share seven points around love.

Love Point #1: Love is Not Permanent

Love is like moisture. It demands certain conditions for it to stay otherwise it evaporates. Love wants people who engage in it and contribute to its thriving. Like solar panels love must be pointed to the sky and the heaven. We must enjoy the love we have with whom we have it right now for love is a moving target we must move with it. Never take love for granted.

Love Point #2: Love loves Forgiveness

Love is sensitive and thrives in an environment of forgiveness. When we forgive those who have wronged us, we liberate the better side of us to move forward. When I was twenty four years old some fourteen and half years ago I used to make rediculous statements like; "Me I cant tolerate this and that. If anyone hurts me here or there they will see." Lets just say I have ended up seeing that life is not a perfect road. Life is full of people who break our hearts and whose hearts we bruise. Forgiveness is the lubrication with which we water the joints of relationships. This valentines day one of the gifts you can give is forgivenes even to those who have hurt you and I. Just let it go so you can be free.

Love Point #3: Love Overcomes

It is a force and a benchmark that opens closed doors. Ask yourself this question; "What is the worst thing I ever went through and how did I make it?" Love is a bedrock that creates determination and commitment to the resolution of disputes, the overturning of cases and the release of freedom when lifes shuckels press againts our wrists. Love has given prisoners hope that one day they will walk freely on the streets of earth. Love has given barren women hope and importent men the beliefe that they too can cuddle their babies. Love has given teachers hope that their students will pass and become somebodies in society. Love is a weapon often under utilised.

Love Point #4: Love Love Begins with You

The magic of love is that who ever wants it can have it and whom ever gives it first is the stronger. Unlike lust which often is a parasite kind of feeling, love is a leadership oriented choice and commitment to the welfare of others. Like a match stick, it must be lit before it lights a candle. You are the 'match stick'. Light yourself up. Learn to praise yourself and be kind and nice to you. Forgive yourself when you error. Alexander pope said "To error is human and to forgive is divine." Love yourself. Love every aspect of who you are. By the way you are not perfect and that means you come with flaws and defects. You cant just love an AK47 for the way it shoots but hate the noise it makes. Love both.

Love Point #5: Love Gives

This is the most powerful point in the firmament of love. God showed us what kind of giving love can give when it loves. Its sacrificial. When you connect with others you end up oppening your vault to give. Love loves to give. A young man I have mentored for the past six years asked me yesterday to be the master of ceremonies at his wedding. I gladly said yes. Another young protege of mine made a similar request about four months ago and we married him off gladly. These are young men and young women who have laboured with me side by side. There is not many things I would not give them. Love gives time, resources, and its care. Allow people to entre the general areas of your space and let them windowshop your warmth and love. May God give you grace to give even when it hurts or even when there is little left. Miracles sometimes come when we give our last.

Love Point #6: Love Celebrates

This valentines if someone in your office or church or community receives a larger bouquet of flowers please do not call them satanists. There is a human tenderncy to downplay the successes of others but to blurb our own. We downplay the pain of others and broadcast our own. This attitude is counterproductive and often sets all of us back. Celebrate others and let the smartness of others overtake you. Its ok to be second best. Just remember you are still amoung the best. We cant always win. Sometimes while God is teaching us how to be champions he lets us taste being second so we can value being number one when that time comes. Stop calling people bad names just because they are better than you at something. Love celebrates and congratulates others from its heart.

Love Point #7: Accept Love

I am not asking you to be promiscuous. All around us there are love fountains speaking to us and asking us to sip. Sometimes its a newspaper vendor who just says a warm word. In some cases its a homeless child who encourages us at the time we are about to lose our home. The idea is that when we accept this overflow of love we then regagitate it to others who may also be waiting to accept love from us. Love accepted is love given. Love given is another tree of hope planted twenty years ahead of ots time.


So what is love? Love is Gods way to reveal himself amoung us. Its a commandment that we love one another. It begins by accepting the greatest love of all; the priviledge to be alive. Then doing something with that life to love others. This after all is the function of all life, the charter of all human undertaking and the perquisite of authority. Love is a remnant free gift from God. So give it freely.

Happy Valentimes and Gods blessings upon your life, your business and your family.

How to Fight the Spirit of Fear when in Danger

How to Fight the Spirit of Fear when in Danger
By Mubita C. Nawa

Good day soldiers in the faith. We are in the second month of this new year. I pray that God is blessing whatever you touch and that you are courageously marching into your space and season.

This week a very sad thing happened to a good friend of mine. He was my intake-mate in secondary school and we were in the same executive in the debate club. After a long legal battle my friend was sentenced to five years in prison with hard labour. I am worried about his health and I pray for his family as well as himself. As leaders we must always pray for others regardless of whether we agree with them or not.

What effects does fear place on us? Some say fear is the absence of faith. I actually think that fear can co-mingle and co-exist side by side with faith. The presence of one does not guarantee the absence of the other. Semantics asside, let us examine five reasons we must eliminate fear's choke on us?

1- Fear is a Thief: I have never seen any assets in the balance sheet of fear. All I see are liabilities. Fear robs us of impetuous. It freezes our focus and stifles our energy. It is a catalyst to stagnation. The antidote for fear is not eliminating it but embracing and releasing the potential within. It is accepting that though fear exits you will not worship it. Fear must be ignored and not celebrated. Fear in my opinion is like an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend. The less you talk about them the faster you move on.

2- Fear Blinds- When we are afraid we act like little children. Fear speaks to us words that frighten us and take away our sight. We suddenly stop seeing what is good and what is possible and we focus on what is negative. We become like aviators flying without instruments. We become dancers who cant hear the sound of music. Fear blinds us. If you can just say to yourself that fear is not worth your attention you will be amazed at what you will see. You will see solutions, you will see the giant in you and in others. You will see a life as it was meant to be. We are all possibilities thinkers and we are humans who love and value success. Fear is like the other woman (or man) we never married who has nothing good to say about us. Open your eyes dear leader and see greatness all around you.

3- Fear is Unfaithful- Like a pimp or a casanova, fear likes 'quikies'. It matters not with who but desires to propel its host into a state of discombombulation. At the end of the day you have to divorce yourself from this unfaithful force. You are better than this. You deserve better. Your hair is falling out because you are afraid. When will you enjoy your life? Say to fear "It was a pleasure knowing you. We promised each other things but we are not compatible. I wish you well and I hope it works out for you." Fear does not like people who are ready to walk away. But walking away is the only way you can attract the faith you deserve.

4- Faith is ready for you- Faith is a plus. Faith is your kind and you it's kind. You and faith look good together and you achieve more together. Faith is attracted to you attract it to you by saying yes today.

5- Faith will build you and others- Faith is like cement. It solidifies and strengthens. It builds and boisterously takes you up where you excel. Unlike fear which operates on the principle of the more the better, faith operates on the principle of "the mustard seed" (luke 17:6 He replied and said "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed you will say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and be planted in the sea,' and it will obey." NIV

I have spoken of faith and of fear in the third person as if they were human. Forgive me if that is wrong. What ever they are they are real. They affect people negatively (fear) and positively (faith) in different ways depending on the level of the individual. But the reality is we must manage ourselves and concur any hindrances in the presence of danger. Fear will never go away. We all get afraid. I am a motovational speaker and have been speaking and writing professionally for forteen years. But I still fear. I am afraid right now wondering if what I am writing will make sense. Yet I know better than to listen to that voice. I would rather listen to the voice that says, "Mubita just write. There is someone out there waiting for this newsletter and will be blessed."

For me that is the fomular to success. To do whatever it takes to win and to let faith speak first and to also have the last word. Faith hugs us in the midst of the storm. Tears streaming down our faces and our limbs shaken by danger, fear desires to spoil our party. But faith comes in and says "I still believe in the dream and in the vision. I have been with some 'unfaithful' people (fear) but those days are gone. I know who I deserve and who deserves me. My days of running around with 'pimps' are over. I am a changed person and I am no longer afraid of danger."

"That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day." 2 Timothy 1:12 (NIV)

"The Lord is my light and my salvation .... whom shall I fear? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?" Psalm 27:1 (NLT)

The 7 Gifts God Gave Every Man

The 7 Gifts God Gave Every Man
by Mubita C. Nawa

Greetings champions. We are blessed of God and thanking God for every moment. Three days ago I was the master of ceremonies at the biggest function of my life. It was attended by high profile guests in my country and to me that moment represented a baptism in a new relm of my life.

I pray that God is blessing you and that you are enjoying the gifts of God in your life. Here are seven gifts that I believe every human being was given by God. Some have all seven in manifestation while some may have less or more. The pursuit of these gifts is in and of itself a gift.

Gift #1: The Gift of Consumption
Our mouths as organs represent this gift. We can eat things we generally call food. We can drink fluids to replenish our bodies. Though this gift is rudemental it still represents a place where a lot of people end up. We consume time, the environment, energy, space, joy, entertainment and more. We are all consumers. At individual, community and even national levels. The trouble with being an expert at this gift only is that it can be a wasteful gift if not controlled. It can disfigure your body, your wallet, your home and even your life.

Gift #2: The Gift of Productivity
This is the relm of champions. This is the place of investing and believing in the art of result orientation. This place is the place of co-relationships. Productivity is the understanding that the life I desire requires an input equal or in exceeding the results I desire. In my simple analysis, success is the ability to produce more than you need so that others can benefit from you and you from their trade with you. The reason a lot of us are less productive is that we lack the motivation to make things happen.

Gift #3: The Gift of Reconciliation
Reconciliation is the art of bringing together two or more worring or disagreeing parties to a place of mutual understanding. There are many disputes and perceptions around us. It is not your responsibility to make people love you or to like you. It is their responsibility to make sure they understand why they dont like you. However as a leader you and I need to do our best to be at peace with God's people (Romans 12:18).

Reconciliation also involves the understanding of times in your life. Be prepared to face matters head-on and see success in your life. Some results of reconciliation are immediate while others take time. Be patient and be filled with faith.

Gift #4: The Gift of Problem Solving
The Nation of Israel inspires me so much. They, like Dubai, Japan, and even Iceland have created solutions where there were no solutions. Problems rarely know how to go away. Solutions chase problems. That skill of thinking like Dubai or Israel is priceless. Robert H. Schuller once said, "Again and again, the impossible problem is solved when we see that a problem is only a tough decision waiting to be made."

Gift #5: The Gift of Transition Management
The word transition means the movement from one key area or stage to another. How we move in between the stages of life dictates our success at those new stages or for that matter our success at the old stages. Don't be depressed when time to move on or to staying on comes. Manage your transitions well so you may preserve energy at the next level. Much work awaits you. Don't let transitions overwhelm you.

Gift #6: The Gift of Retention
How many people have you noticed receive a great thing and then immidiately waste it? They lacked that intricate ability to "hold" it. In today's world don't just retain it grow and expand it.

Gift #7: The Gift of Spirituality
Many are endowed with this gift but few utilize it. Some are scared to even use it. I am one of them. Spirituality varies from person to person. We must seek out our own levels and pursue the pleasures of connectivity to Gods spiritual abundance.

From a young age I found myself intuitive, telepathic and discerning of the times. I have the ability to read peoples past and futures. I can tap into the energy signature of a person and explain to them exactly what may be right or wrong. But I am scared. Five years ago at a retreat I evoked this gift. My audience almost ran away. I almost ran away.

Conclusion: God gave and edowed each one of us with more gifts than these. Yet many of us operate on average less gifts than we should and it often upsets our very existence. To be gifted is only the beginning, to enjoy the benefits of a gift is much more fulfilling. Explore the gifts in you both known an unknown and let the world benefit from your gift. The world is desperate for your gift. Don't keep us waiting for too long.

Tony Robbins Reveals The Top 6 Leadership Blind Spots That Cripple Business Success

Tony Robbins Reveals The Top 6 Leadership Blind Spots That Cripple Business Success

Article by Kathy Caprino, Contributor at Forbes covering career growth, leadership & women's professional development

Throughout my 10 years as career and leadership coach and trainer, I've been continually intrigued by Tony Robbins' messages, programs and extraordinary business growth. Ranked by Harvard University as one of the "Top 200 Business Gurus" in 2003 and reaching over 4 million people from 100 countries with his life and business mastery books, products and services, Tony overcame a deeply traumatic childhood with an abusive, alcoholic mother to become a powerful agent for change. A multimillionaire (his net worth is estimated at $480 million dollars) who strives to change millions of lives around the world for the better (watch this for a glimpse of his true life calling), Tony has a great deal to teach about overcoming significant personal limitations and reaching our highest potential as individual contributors, leaders and innovators.

I was thrilled then, to catch up with Tony, and learn his views on the most common — and damaging — blind spots leaders have that can unravel business success today.

"The most common thing that occurs during tough economic times is that entrepreneurs shrink, rather than grow. If you look at the Fortune 1000, you'll see more than half of them were businesses that began in what I would call an 'economic winter' (a depression or recession). Look back to Disney – born in depression. Exxon — born in depression. Pizza Hut, Apple AAPL -2.19%, Microsoft MSFT -0.67% — all born during recessions. If you can find a way to do well during the toughest times, you take market share and when the financial situation improves, you're the established, go-to brand. But there are significant blind spots that keep business leaders from reaching their potential and creating the success they dream of, even in boon times."

Tony's take on the top 6 blindspots that leaders need to address in order to succeed are:

1. The failure to innovate and market during tough times

The importance of innovating when times are hard can't be overstated. Here's an example: my dear friend Steve Wynn came to my Business Mastery program to speak and then decided to attend the program. As a result of attending that day, he discovered that his greatest competitive edge after 2009, when travel to Las Vegas had dropped through the floor, was the ability to find a way to add more value to his clients. When all of his competitors were shrinking their services and providing less value, he decided he was going to find a way to produce more.

He designed on the spot this idea for building a giant beach club that would attach to Las Vegas Boulevard and attract another market segment into his casino. He invested his time, energy and effort in achieving great results from the core belief that, "If I find a way to add more value to my clients today during the down times, I will earn market share, and people will come to the Wynn or Encore instead of other competitive hotels. And when things get better, they'll be our clients and they'll stay with us." His strategy has already paid off.

2. Realizing that YOU – the leader — are the most important sales person on the team

Peter Drucker was right — innovation and marketing are absolutely critical, but there's one more leg to the table. If you're a business owner, you have to tell yourself the truth, and that is, YOU are the most important sales person on your team. You have to sell everyone in your organization on your ideas to get the funding you need and to create the culture that's going to make it run. You have to sell the public on the value of what you're doing. All I really mean by "sell" is cultivating your power to influence. Sales means "influence" and influence is the #1 leadership skill on earth. Most people have forgotten that. They are too excited about their Facebook page and their company's website, which is all well and good, but without sales and influence, your business dies — end of story.

3. Not understanding that people buy identities, not products

Whether you're talking about business mastery or life mastery, the key is to understand that your mission (if you wish to be successful and find fulfillment and purpose) is to help people meet their core human needs. Sales and marketing teams have to know specifically who their ideal customer is and not only what they want, but what they need at the deepest level. If you're able to meet these needs, you'll develop a raving fan culture.

Understanding human needs psychology is what gives Louis Vuitton the ability to sell a $5,000 purse. The idea of this would sound ridiculous to most manufacturers. Why would someone spend $5,000 on a purse that might cost $50 to make? They clearly don't understand that what people need is different depending upon their specific need structure. Some people are looking for comfort and certainty; something that is a "good buy" and allows them to meet their basic needs. But others are looking to stand out and to feel they are significant somehow. And Louis Vuitton understands the power of helping those people fulfill their need for significance through their products and services. These individuals aren't buying a purse for $5,000; they are buying an identity.

4. Failing to anticipate

Anticipation is power. Leaders anticipate; losers react. We live in a world where all business owners have to be able to run two businesses: the business you're in today and the business that you're becoming. The world is changing constantly. Finding a way to meet clients' needs at a higher and deeper level than anyone else requires being aware of new technology breakthroughs, new insights, and changes in culture and economics. The business leader who is constantly anticipating rather than just running the business they're in now is the one who will thrive and grow.

5. Not understanding that problems are gifts

Another blind spot that leaders have is they become easily overwhelmed and distracted by the sheer number of problems that a business creates. Everyone has a certain threshold of control. Some people control a certain amount of uncertainty in their lives, a certain number of challenges before they become overwhelmed. Other people have a larger capacity to deal head-on with problems. This capacity can be expanded by understanding how to solve problems quickly and effectively. But a large impediment to business owners' success is a mindset that they shouldn't have any problems at all. Businesses by nature are creators of problems. Anytime you're trying to do something new where you're adding value, there are going to be new problems or at the very least challenges that arise.

Your new problems are proof that you're innovating and evolving and outgrowing your old ones. That's the secret to success. Your biggest breakthroughs in business will come from what you once thought were the greatest problems or crises. The truth is, problems are gifts.

6. Letting your psychological limitations constrain you

The psychology of an organization's leader is the difference between success and failure; it's the difference between a one-time success that is never followed up with anything and a consistent habit of meeting and exceeding customer needs.

To be successful in business, a leader must learn to destroy the limitations in his or her mind. We all come up with a story when things aren't going well and the story is about something that is not our fault or something we can't control. But to be a leader in your field, you have to master your psychology and make sure you acquire the skills that you're missing. Success is actually 80% psychology and 20% mechanics.

Challenges are inevitable but we have to train ourselves to focus on what we can control. There is no shortage of risk and uncertainty in today's world of government mandates, high frequency trading, and huge stock swings because somebody fires off 140 characters on Twitter. Still, it's remarkable just how much we ARE able to predict just by considering what point a business is at in its natural lifecycle. Just like teenagers and 40-year-olds have predictable problems, a business too has foreseeable challenges. A business might have all the right ideas and the mechanics to do the right thing, but without the psychology to do the right thing at the right time, it's a losing battle. I've seen the right initiative at the wrong time put a lot of talented innovators with a great product out of business.

This crucial ability – knowing how to do right thing at the right time — is what establishes you as a real player. Smart business leaders have thought long and hard about what business they are really in— and what's more, have both the psychological preparedness and the creative vision to know what business they need to become if they want to stick around – and flourish — in today's volatile times.

13 Leadership Lessons from 2013

13 Leadership Lessons from 2013
By Mubita C. Nawa

Greetings champions.

I pray that you have had a great year. I have had a great year. One in which I harvested many leadership lessons from my successes as well as many treasures from my failures. A leader is a person who learns both from their good times as well as challenging times.

Allow me to pass my heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been on this newsletter data base in 2013. This newsletter has been in existence for the past twelve years and we have readership in over 100 countries around the world including Russia, Saudi Arabia and even India and China. My staff and I say thank you. Here are the thirteen lessons.

Lesson #1: There is only one Mandela- Early this month a legend was put to rest in South Africa. I do not recall a funeral and memorial so publisised and so well attended by national leaders. I was so inspired. As leaders we can only be who we are and that is what Mandela was. He was just himself. Obama's speech at the memorial was the most moving of them all. I pray that your life becomes legendary like that of Mandela.

Lesson #2: Stay Strong and Stay True- I will never forget the challenges one of my businesses and my personal life have gone through in 2013. When I conduct a florensic postmotum of 2013, it is clear to me that in those moments where I violated my own ethos and creed, I also created unnecessary troubles. Yet my honest desire to arise from those quagmire situations was the wind beneath my spirit. Be honest with yourself in 2014. Be truthful and never compromise on who you are. Say no when you must and only say yes to those people and circumstances that only deserve your full attention. You are a rare commodity and never take yourself for granted.

Lesson #3: Politics are Limited- In 2011 our nation went through a political revolution. As in Cuba, China, Israel or Greece, politics present opportunities for social justice, economic emmancipation and many jurisprudence decisions. Yet I have concluded that though politics is a needed virtue or vice, it can't change a human being. Human beings can only truely change by their own personal choices and convictions. We must never 100% depend on politics nor politicians for they are also human beings and can fall short in their promises.

Lesson #4: Be Humble- I have watched with great fascination the two dimensions of power between the humble and the pride-ful. People who are proud are like buckets of water with holes in them. How does pride come into our hearts? When we feel we are indespensable and when we feel that we are better than everyone else then pride has come in and power is saying goodbye. Humility on the other hand galvernises itself in power. It envelopes itself in grace and an understanding that simply says "All that I have I only have it because God gave it to me."

Lesson #5: Be Prepared for Anything in Life- Pilots teach us a lot if things. They fly with one goal; to safely transport people and/or goods from one place to another. Yet their flight paths have plans for anything. They don't desire to crush but are ready to crush at any moment with procedures for landing on water, in the desert or in communities. That kind of leadership may seem negative but it remains preparatory and positive. Plan for anything. Plan that your business will prosper always but think about what you will do should it fail?

Lesson #6: Celebrate Your Victories- It is a pitty that with just a few days before this year ends some people don't even recognise the great victories they have had. Believe me you have had some good days and some great moments. Count those and learn from the bad ones too. I am reminded of the song we sung many years ago. "Count your blessings name them one by one and you will be suprised what the Lord has done."

Lesson #7: Grow your Territory- Be careful not to grow too fast but be just as careful not to remain in the same place for too long. Expand your territory. I have concluded that all the rich and successful companies, preachers, politicians and innovators became successful by growing their territories. Just imagine, I receive an email every week or two from The White House informing me on the plans of Barack Obama and the current US Government. I wish I could get an email from my own country even once a year. Why would Obama write to millions each week in his own country and beyond? He is expanding his territory.

Lesson #8: Fire the Incompetent- Donald Trump's favourite line is "You are Fired." I must confess that it is easier said than done. From today onwards consider hirering competent people in your life and business. Incompetent people tell nice stories but they spoil our party and full story.

Lesson #9: Believe in Your Family- In 2014 may God bring your family closser to one another. Start with your immediate family and expand to your extended family. Believe in them, love them and sharpen rheir understanding of you and of life. Be careful though not to expect too much from family members. They do not always come back to say thank you.

Lesson #10: Think Positive- Fill your heart with good thoughts and your mind with victorious precepts. Remain positive. Being great begins
with thoughts of greatness and a general desposition of grace to ones self. Positive thoughts geminate into positive actions and results. Don't intoxicate yourself with negative self dicapitating thoughts.

Lesson #11: Face Your Demons- It is so easy to run way from our mistakes in 2013. But what good does it do to us? It is easy to make our bed but much harder to sleep in them. Own up to your mistakes and fae the consequencies head own. It may be embarrancing, frustrating but that is what great people do. Answer your phone, meet people and deal with the issues you have to deal with.

Lesson #12: Do Better in 2014- I believe you have no choice but to do better. This year has your name on it so make it fresh and dynamic.

Lesson#13: Let God be in the Center- By the end of 2014 may Gods name be glorified in your life and mine. May we all say God did it.

May God bless you in the coming year. I pray for you and your businesses and your family that you may reconcile yourself to the greatness that awaits you. Happy 2014.

Lemonade anyone?

"The best of times and the worst of times sometimes come at the same time. What do you do when your life is both sweet and sour? You do what any great chef would do. Cook up the best meal ever. Enjoy it and neither apologise nor regret. Sometimes when life gives you lemons yes you can make lemonade. But when life gives you lemonade I say look for some ice cubes. Now get up and fight this battle. It aint over baby. God did not bring you this far to kill you. God brought you over here to LIVE. Someone please get me a bucket of ice. And if anyone has a problem with that then they just have to deal with it." Mubita ? Nawa, Life Coach and Author

How to Change Your World and How to Diversify

Good morning Leader,

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

I See a Great Nation

"I see a day in the future soon, when young people will not knock on doors to ask for opportunities. But will knock on walls to create opportunities. I see a day when the dynamic minds of our country shall pride themselves in self empowerment rather than self deprecating tenderncies. I see copper not on track beds being exported in cheap form. I see value added copper flying out of the country at value added levels. I see a corupt free generation that cares about its people first. I see a nation walking in justice and prosperity for all. I see humble leaders motivated by legacy rather than comfort. I see a revolution not of the ballot nor of the bullet but of the heart. A redemption in the minds of the people to celebrate and to overcome. I see a youth educated in justice, peace and non violence. I see old people giving wisdom to the young rather than fighting the young. I see the young proud of their fathers rather than insulting the shade under which they sit. I see a better nation. A modern nation driven by ideologies that progress rather than retard. I see budgets balanced from reality not from proposals. I see children in kindergarden learning enterprenureship side by side with physics and civics. I see democracy not as a subject but a way of life. I see leaders who share power with others rather than those who styfle oxygen out of others. I see a great nation." Mubita C. Nawa September 25th, 2013

Keys to Success

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.

Is Your Spirit Contaminated

Is Your Spirit Contaminated
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.

Don't Miss our Holiday Tuitions

I am so excited about our Holiday Tuition Program starting next week!

Would you buy a pair of shoes for your child worth K200 or worth K500? What if I told you that for the same amount we will help your child improve in writing and reading, mathematics, sciences and geography for two weeks. Next week we start our intensive tuition to prepare your children for success. 

During the school holidays, Inspire Leadership School offers examination geared training for the scholars. from upper primary tuition, school entry exam preparations, as well as remedial courses of tuition in math and science from our Woodlands school. These courses of private tuition are different than tutorial college or group revision programmes in that they are tailored to the pupil's individual requirements rather than the conflicting requirements of a larger group. Taking place in the pupil's home (or holiday destination), they also achieve more in far less time, leaving the pupil with more leisure time rather than less. 
Our tutors start by identifying areas of weakness and provide a customized programme of tuition with targets for improvement. This is a highly efficient way of revising or catching up, with the pace being set by the pupil and tutor rather than the slowest pupil in a group. Taking place in the comfort of the student's home (or chosen location), it cuts down on unnecessary repeatitions of grades.

Call today and schedule your grade 5 to 7 and grade 8 to 12. 0976130005

School Address: Inspire Leadership School, Plot # 7779 Buluwe Road in Lusaka.
