Bisila Bokoko’s Success Secrets By Moffat Machingura

“I should explain why this pretty lady, Bisila, so deeply captured my attention the first time I saw her. Firstly, of course she is stunningly attractive. Secondly, she is intriguingly intelligent. Her life story testifies that beauty and brains can co-exist in a single soul.

When I first saw Bisila Bokoko at Empretec Zimbabwe (28 October 2014) I had the longest question I could ever ask anyone.

How did an Equatorial Guinea woman having grown up in Spain manage to win the Ghana title of Queen Development of Kokofu; and became the only woman of African descent to serve as the Executive Director of the Spain Chamber of Commerce in New York; study Law and Economics at University; Take a Masters in International Relations; Start Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project and be listed among the top ten Hispanic women with most influence in the United States…all by the age of 40???

I am sure you now understand how my infatuation for Bisila is totally justified!

I listened to her with both my ears open, and my eyes too continued to read her lips. I handled this first time as dearly as though it would be the only chance.

Today on I share the Success Secrets that made Bisila Bokoko’s life prove that being an African woman should never be a disadvantage.

  1. Bisila Secret: “You have got to visualize yourself being who you want to be.”

Moffat Comments:

To break away from the past, the future you imagine must be more vivid than the past you remember. Your imagination fuels your desire, and desire is the energy that propels us into the future.

The first step to being who you want to be is knowing clearly who you want and don’t want to be. Take time to close your eyes, disconnect from the hustle and bustle of this hectic world, and ask yourself: Who exactly do I want to be? What story do I want my life to write?

Like Bisila says: You have got to visualize yourself being who you want to be.

  1. Bisila Secret: “You have got to tell yourself that you are going to be international. In everything you do, say ‘I am going to be global’”

Moffat Comments

Always think globally even when you are still acting locally. Only compete with the top ten of the world’s finest competitors in your field. Always ask yourself if the top brands in my industry where to come to establish in my region, how would I give them a hard time? it is this global mindset that will stretch you beyond local action.”
