Madziyire told NewsDay recently that in the book — which he dedicated to young leaders across the globe aspiring to make it big — he shares his personal experiences: the joy, the pain, the smooth and the hardship he endured in his leadership journey.
“I am grateful that with God’s hand I have managed to complete writing my first book which took me almost two years as I was also involved in Zimpraise Choir projects, which I could not afford to abandon,” he said.
“The book seeks to correct systems and govern us on how to walk a straight path to achieving the goals set before us as young leaders.”
Madziyire said it was not easy being a leader, urging people to be resilient in the face of insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams.
“Our generations must build on from what we have founded. I wrote this book based on my life experiences and lessons that I have undergone without any professional leadership training or mentorship,” he said.
“It is my prayer that after reading this book it shall take someone five years to achieve things that have taken me about 10 years, it should take one about two weeks to achieve things that have taken me a month and down to 12 hours to achieve things that have taken me a day. The world is getting busier, smaller and our days are numbered.”
The book’s foreword was done by Bishop John Francis of Ruach City Church in London, UK, and it was endorsed by David Molapo, the president of John Maxwell Foundation (Africa), as well as Dr.Terry King of Bridge of Life, Hagerstown, Maryland, US.
