Why I Need To Be A World Champion In The Writing Fraternity - By Sir Article

"My vision is to be a rare titan in the world of writing," Sir Article proclaimed. I have always emphasised the need for me to emerge as a world champion in the writing fraternity. Oh am I speaking like a typical braggart in a self-aggrandising way? Damn it, "No matter how vast one's potential is, without self-confidence, one is already defeated in the battle of life," Gordon Asubonteng wrote in 'Mining the Gold in You,' stressing that, "The fact is no human being under the sun knows you better than yourself. If you want to wait until people express faith in you, you might be disappointed. It is very important, therefore to develop faith in your own self as a means of unleashing your capabilities." That is why I talk the way I talk because I exude self-confidence regardless of hopeless circumstances.

Folks, I mean business as a gifted creative writer brimming with rare passion bound by excellence. I am destined to reach dizzy heights, and even do the unthinkable with the art of writing. Okay, our Ghanaian society is fond of mediocrity, and thus my dream of becoming a global icon in writing circles seems unrealistic. Yet my eccentric spirit believes otherwise, so I strive to accomplish my inalienable purpose to the max. I also seek solace in Eleanor Roosevelt's declaration, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." What can kill my burning ambition to be a world champion in the writing fraternity: my teenage capacity, the scepticism of my family, the indifference of my friends, my natural weaknesses or the mediocrity of our system? None!

Therefore, here are the 5 reasons why I need to be a world champion in the writing fraternity:

(1) I was born to be a world champion.
My pure intuition prompts me to press on with the pursuit of my priceless vision to be a world champion, because I was born to be a world champion. Honestly, I will be "crushed to death" when I stop writing permanently - for the art of writing is my lifetime commitment. God has anointed me to be a world champion to glorify His name and to serve humanity. And I am now a slave to the art of writing so that unending blessings will be open to me.

(2) To impact a multitude of souls on earth.
The way to true success begins with impacting lives in your chosen field. No wonder Pastor Chris Oyakhilome stated that, "Success is causing the world around you to aspire to your inspiration and it starts with impacting lives." My primary aim, therefore, is not to purposely amass wealth, but rather to positively influence the minds and attitudes of many people around the world.

(3) To make Ghana and Africa proud.
God bless Azumah Nelson, "The Professor," for being the greatest African boxer ever. Indeed, he has made Ghana and Africa proud in the world of boxing. I also want my "third-world country" and my "dark continent" to regard me as the pride of Ghana and Africa at large one day. I mean, I seek to be one of the greatest writers of all time even as a typical black African.

(4) To inspire future generations to aspire to global greatness.

I hate getting stuck in local championship. Yes, I am now 19 years old and the acclaimed UCC's finest blogger yet I aim at becoming a world champion in the writing fraternity. So that I can inspire future generations to aspire to global greatness, and not national prominence. For in Ghana and Africa, creative writers are often treated as the downtrodden and local heroes, but I will change this silly perception by emerging as a world champion one day.

(5) To make the art of writing a necessity in everyday life.

I always tell my good friend, Augustine Amponsah, that, "I will make Ghana and Africa a reading nation and continent respectively by publishing and distributing hundreds of life-changing books for decades, so that almost every home in Africa will testify to my good works as a writer of genius." That is how I plan to make the art of writing a necessity in everyday life, at least in Africa, and the world at large.
