Lilongwe-based entrepreneur Misheck Chapasuka has published a book titled Die Empty which provokes individuals to find out and achieve the one thing they are passionate about.
In an interview on Wednesday, the writer traced the genesis of the book, saying the idea to publish it was born from his passion and a calling he has to help people discover their God-given purpose.
He said he believes that every person has the potential to live fully and accomplish great things that would make a difference and leave a mark on earth.
“If you believe you were born to make a remarkable difference in the world for God’s glory, not just to let days of your life pass by, then this book is for you–because it will show you how,” Chapasuka said.
Writing in the book’s foreword, staunch Pan-Africanist Patrick Lochi Otieno Lumumba, a renowned motivational speaker, describes Chapasuka as a young African whose courage and “celerity of mind can’t be gainsaid”.
Lumumba says using his maiden book, Chapasuka has handled a sensitive subject whose essence is the value of a service to humanity.
Quoting the late Martin Luther King Junior who once said “if a man has not discovered something to die for, he isn’t fit to live”, Lumumba says such an axiom finds meaning in Chapasuka’s book.
“Combining his role as an evangelist, an innovator and entrepreneur, Chapasuka exhorts the readers to search in the inner recesses of the heart and mind to discover his or her purpose of life,” says Lumumba, who holds a PhD in law.
According to Chapasuka, the book is set for launch soon in Lilongwe on a date yet to be announced.
With his book, the youthful Chapasuka, who plies his trade in the real estate sector, has already won the hearts of many.
In the book, he asks the key question: “If you were about to die today, what would be your regrets? What would you have accomplished on earth to present before your Creator?”
He takes readers through a rare expedition to discover what each person was born for in a bit to accomplish their respective missions on earth.
Chapasuka, who is also the founder and chairperson of a real estate company called Arch Housing Developers and microfinance company Link Finance, outlines how to discover personal identity, origin, purpose, vision, potential, destiny; and how to cultivate personal character as the foundation to personal success.
