Rise and Shine Column has been in existence since 1st October 2009 – which means it has been around for more than 11 years continuously. As time goes, we need to reinvent the column to ensure it remains vividly relevant to you the readers and followers. That is the reason we have now expanded its reach via the Nation Online news platform and also supplemented by occasional rise and shine webinars via Facebook Live.
In 2020, this year, we are taking another major step – by hosting the Rise and Shine Seminars – physical forum where followers can come and hear verbally some motivational talks that are aimed at helping you to grow personally and to develop professionally. All these different streams and media are propagating the same values, principles and effect of the Rise and Shine theme.
This is therefore a call to you all Rise and Shine column followers to come and attend the seminars. There are two physical seminars planned for December and these are the first ever rise and shine physical seminars, having done four online webinars since June until October 2020. In Blantyre, the Rise and Shine seminar will be held on Saturday the 19th December and in Lilongwe on Thursday the 23rd December. Details can be obtained by contacting Patience Chilinjala on 0998 556 000 who will register your name and agree with you terms and conditions and giving you the details of the venue and so on.
At both the seminars in Blantyre and Lilongwe, the focus will be to share with you the guidelines that you can use to get to the top in your career or in your business. This will be supplemented by tips on how you can maximise your productivity, which means doing more in less time. There will also be an invited guest speaker who will tackle the topic of leadership. You cannot get to the top if you are not an effective leader.
All these talks will still incorporate the usual features of Rise and Shine, including fun, entertaining, educative and impactful elements. When you attend these seminars, you will be equipped with the tools and energy to get to the top. Some people who are capable of getting to the top do not reach there simply because they do not have enough ambition. These talks will amplify your little ambition into the desired amount of ambition that can enable you to get to the top.
Others fail to get to the top because they pray without action – they simply hope that somehow they will get to the top. These seminars will demystify all this and share with you the realities of what you need to do to get to the top including the need to consistently work hard.
You will also find that especially these days, we have many people who want to get to the top via short cuts and at any cost. The Rise and Shine seminars will only teach you the legitimate and morally upright methods of getting to the top. We believe that short-cuts do not offer lasting and sustainable achievement or success. Rise and Shine seminars will teach you the sustainable ways of achieving success in life. Integrity is key to success. You will have seen that quickly rose to fame or in riches only to end up in prison or fighting court cases and going through so much pain and suffering. You ought to admire the genuinely good things that are done following the right procedures and adhering to principles and values.
Rise and Shine will always promote the good values and principles and not the bad ones. Therefore, it makes sense to follow the Rise and Shine column and its associated avenues of sharing for personal growth and professional development. See you at the Rise and Shine Seminars in Blantyre and Lilongwe. Good luck as you rise and shine in ahead of Christmas. n
