Ireland-based Malawian TV host for a popular talk show, Harifa Daly, who carved a new career as a motivational speaker, has released a book.
The book seeks to inspire people in re-discovering their inborn talents.
The motivational book which is available on www.amazon.com for promotion purposes pending its launch in May, has received a rave review on international publications because of its inspiration approach to the youth and content on Malawi culture.
“I grew up in Nalingula in Phalombe District and life was unbearable. A place without electricity, television, just streams and farms. Life was not easy in the village and I was abused and humiliated but I swallowed my pride with my child selling tomatoes in the streets. It was through this business that I raised money to travel to Europe,” said Harifa as reported by amebobook.com.
“No! I will not allow myself to be a victim of failure. I am ready to conquer the world because I know who I am. You must be free to make mistakes, never be afraid of making them because what you are today and all you have achieved are results of your mistakes.”
She wrote on her Facebook page: “My friends and family be among the first 50 people to support my work as my book is ready for purchasing. Share the link, tell a friend to tell a friend.”
In an interview with On The Arts, the author, who is also a sister to Ireland-based hip-hop artist Popp Dog, said she is blessed to share her real-life experience and motivational words to people through the book.
“Hope and faith is the currency that takes one to accomplish all things you want. People should not give themselves limits in life. They should keep empowering their minds and should read as often as they can to enrich their mind,” she said.
She said she discovered how valuable life could be when one focuses on what can be done to live a life full of hope and peace.
Harifa added that it was through motivation that she moved forward and realised that there is no need to worry about things one cannot change.
She advised that people should learn to take care of their minds as it is the number one creative tool.
“Those who care about their minds know how to nourish it so that it executes its duties with perfection,” said Harifa.
Harifa said Malawians, in greater numbers than ever, continue to suffer in absolute poverty but with inspirations they can do something in life.
The red-carpet host added: “This includes understanding that we don’t have to be a product of our broken and poverty-stricken environment. The key for living is to find the desires that one has in one’s heart and finding the courage and faith to pursue them.”
She feels that the greatest concern people have in their lives is that they are often willing to compromise on just about everything.
Harifa said the 76-paged book will help people to realise that everyone has God-given desires that are supposed to be fulfilled and attained.
“This is to help everyone understand that there is a process that was designed to follow in order to achieve and live the life they have always been dreaming of having,” she said.
According to the author, her desire is to bring the book to Malawi, especially in schools to inspire scholars.
“The content will help young people to believe in themselves and the style makes readers feel like they are talking to me not reading, it’s like a conversation with me,” she said.
Harifa is the founder of Miss D Talk show. She also hosts interviews of high-profile people. In February 2012, she was a judge of Miss South Africa-Ireland which was a success. In 2015, she hosted an interview with the founder of Tazorlee Foundation.
