Momodou Sabally, a Gambian author, last weekend launched another book entitled: ‘Instant Success Ten Key to Personal Achievement’.
The official launching, held at the Paradise Suites Hotel, was attended by government officials, intellectuals as well as friends and relatives.
The 72-page book holds a formula for success in ten chapters starting with the first step - Be Yourself - to the final step - Be Coachable.
In reviewing the book, Latirr Carr thanked all those who attended the launching, saying that the book is styled to be a simple, yet research-filled transcript that follows a blueprint that lends ideas from sports successes to academic.
With serious biblical reference and the genius of simple math, Mr Carr added, the author’s book tells its readers they can be ten times themselves.
Not stopping there, he noted, Sabally again lends from famous words of poverty and uses as reference one of the living legends of the black race.
“Doing my review on the book, I could easily tell that the book targets an audience of young to relatively older people (19 years - 45 years) knowing that the hunger for success is more evident in a generation with growing competitiveness and lesser competitive advantage,” he said.
Momodou Sabally, author of the book, thanked all those who contributed to the success of the book in one way or the other.
He said the basic building block of success is to be yourself. “Two simple words whose significance are underscored by the fact that when the late Pope John Paul II visited my country The Gambia in 1992 these are the same words he offered as his message to young people in a service that I attended,” he said.
“We are all blessed with talents suited to us and it is the duty of every man and woman to know their calling and to go ahead to develop the talents and skills needed for self-fulfilment.”
Other speakers at the launching included Youth and Sports Minister Sheriff Gomez, Sahel Invest CEO Alhaji Abdoulie Touray, Sana Sarr, Khadija Aja Tambajang and the author’s wife, Jainaba T. Sarr, who all expressed similar sentiments.
