Nelson Mandela's words and spirit re-echoed in author Suvuku Lukumay's debut work, "Inspirational Transformation"

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." These compelling words by South African Nobel Peace Prize Winner Nelson Mandela reveal the weapon he used to win democracy for his nation. Author Suvuku Lukumay follows in his footsteps and educates his readers to free them from all the chains that prevent them from celebrating a highly fulfilling life. He accomplishes this through his newly published book, titled Inspirational Transformation.

"Today's society needs to have positive and uplifted mindset more than ever. Most people today are hurting and depressed because they lack direction in their life," says Lukumay. "An endeavor to draw their attention to changing course for the better should be more than welcome."

The book builds the case for the meaningful pursuit of life, walking towards one's purpose for existence. This, being a fundamental phenomenon in the life of a person, can only be inspired by God. Faith in Jesus Christ is necessary towards inspirational transformation in the life of a person. It calls for a deliberate plan to undergo a mindset change to redefining one's meaningful pursuit of life.

Lukumay uses his personal life experience to illustrate this case. It contrasts his practices before and after an encounter with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and those of his fellow professionals. He believes that "character formation in the life of a child is very important in a health perspective of life." Majority of the causes of moral decline in Tanzania results from negative societal impact on the youth.

Spiritually uplifting and empowering, Inspirational Transformation is a book that once again confirms Mandela's often quoted words: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God."

Like Mandela, Lukumay is truly living his passion for inspiring people to be the best God created them to be. His book is a refreshing companion for readers who are eager to achieve their own meaningful pursuit of life.
