NELSON MANDELA SUCCESS FACTOR: FOCUS (SUCCESS FACTOR SERIES Book 11)
by Abraham MutwolSearch for Abraham Mutwol

Are you presently stuck in the muddy waters of underachievement? Are you feeling that the best years of your life are behind you? Do you wake up every day dreading that long winding journey to your work place? Do you always have the gut feeling that your life is stuck in a rut and that you are powerless to salvage it?
If you answered yes to any of the questions posed above, then you need to press the accelerator and pull yourself out of that self-induced quagmire. Otherwise, you risk dying as a forgotten, hopeless failure. Remember that God brought into this world with one specific goal: to make a difference.
And the starting point of making a difference is to learn important life changing lessons from those who have accomplished great deeds. And one of the most important personalities of our time whom you need to learn from is former South African President and Nobel Prize Winner Nelson Mandela.
Make a decision today, download this book and find out how Mandela used the power of FOCUS to tilt the scales of his life towards a life of principle and courage. It was focus that steeled his gaze towards focusing on anti-apartheid struggle as well as enduring great pain and sacrifice that was occasioned by his long periods of incarceration.
It was also focus that pushed him to him to focus on reconciliation instead of vindictiveness, which many people expected him to pursue upon assuming the mantle of his country?s leadership.
This book is therefore a surefire antidote of elevating your life to the ultimate nirvana of achievement. Take the plunge; don?t let this opportunity pass you, reach for the buy button, and I will guarantee you only one thing: things will never be the same again in your life.
