FREE­LANCE jour­nal­ist, Mu­faro Luck­son Pasi­pan­odya has au­thored an in­spi­ra­tional book ti­tled The Real You — Ig­nit­ing the Dis­cov­ery Po­ten­tial Within.

Al­though far from be­ing fic­tional, the book is in the form of a novel, and Pasi­pan­odya said it seeks to re-en­er­gise and re-as­sure peo­ple that de­spite chal­lenges peo­ple should re­main per­se­ver­ant in pur­su­ing their dreams.

“As a mo­ti­va­tor, I un­der­stand that life with­out in­spi­ra­tion may lose its mean­ing to many peo­ple. The Real You, is an in­spi­ra­tional book that aims at un­leash­ing havoc at the lack­adaisi­cal ap­proach to life by many peo­ple, yet they pos­sess the artis­tic tools to mas­sacre fear of the un­known. The book is a kit to in­spire the ones with hope long lost to re­group their lives and push to­wards bet­ter­ment,” he said.

The book con­sists of seven chap­ters namely Be Your­self, Stop Lis­ten­ing To Many Voices, Live Life Your Way, Dis­cov­ery Is Your Strength, De­velop a Pos­i­tive Out­look, Step To­wards Suc­cess and Pre­pare for To­mor­row.

In a world where coun­tries have be­come in­te­grated and cul­tural pol­lu­tion has largely af­fected African so­ci­eties, Pasi­pan­odya said the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple have al­lowed them­selves to be in­flu­enced by other peo­ple’s life­styles.

“Be Your­self chap­ter mo­ti­vates peo­ple to be­lieve in their own abil­i­ties. There are peo­ple who al­ways copy other peo­ple’s lives. They should un­der­stand that when they give too much cre­dence to other peo­ple’s opin­ions, they are por­tray­ing them­selves as worth­less. The book is ded­i­cated to my wife Sthoe and sons Nenyasha and Ku­nashe. I also ded­i­cate it to all the he­roes, who fol­lowed their con­vic­tion and coura­geously stood in the good and tough times,” he said.

Pasi­pan­odya thanked ev­ery­one who played a role in the au­thor­ing of the book.

“My ac­knowl­edge­ments are due to those who know­ingly and un­know­ingly con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of this book. I would have done great in­jus­tice if I had men­tioned all the names in this re­gard. At the same time, it does not amount to a crime to ac­knowl­edge vet­eran mo­ti­va­tional speaker Jonah Ny­oni who edited the book,” he said.

Pasi­pan­odya is a mo­ti­va­tional speaker, teacher, jour­nal­ist born in Mberengwa. He worked for a num­ber of com­pa­nies in Zim­babwe, South Africa and Botswana after ac­quir­ing a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Psy­chol­ogy.
