    Well done brother. I am proud of you. Let me know when the next HAHD edition begins. I want to be part of it. I am planning on a serious writing drive for 2011 with a couple of books in line. This may make the work easier actually.

    Rabson my initial reaction to the Greatness Manual was aaah, anoother writer of “inspiration”. Everyone and anyone believes they have the right to say something to everyone…. but then i actaually read it. I then realise the best thing about most of the articles is that i can relate to most of the feelings coming from it, not only from being a fellow christian or zimbabwean but its like advise coming from my brother. You are not only saying it but living it too. So thank you for being that flag bearer of inspiration.

    May you be reachly blessed for allowing God to make you the inspiration you are today for not only me but soo many others out there. And congratulations for all the achievements so far.

    Truelly blessed Monalisa

      My sister and very good friend. Thank you for the times we shared when you still loved Zimbabwe. Thank you for sharing in the pain and joys of my life. Indeed, I strive to be what I talk about. I live it out first and then tell others how it worked or didn’t work. I have seen that as a writer the temptation is to say what makes people feel good and remain immune to the advice you give out. I strive to live and say my experiences.

      Once again, your feedback is like fuel to my endeavors. As I follow my purpose, my desire is that I get others to follow their own purpose. I discovered my purpose not so long ago and I was wondering what on earth I was doing all along. I don’t consider it time lost but a lesson learned.

      We will see you in Joburg soon as I have a speaking engagement at a friend’s church this year.

      God bless you and your family. Tell them I love them and appreciate them.

    I like the idea of 1000 words per day…May be we could all try to do that… The problem is where to get the words. I have started posting my thoughts on face book. Thanks for the encouragement.

      Dr George. Thanks for connecting and commenting. I am glad you are inspired to write more. I have slackened a bit due to pressure from studies I have been doing but the whole of 2010 i was able to surpass 1000 words a day. The idea is to just get started. Post what is in your mind. It does not matter if the thoughts are unrelated. Just keep writing and arrange later.

      Once more, thank you for touching base
