CAIRO, Egypt (PRWEB) June 20, 2016
“Roadmap to Success: Inspiring Journeys of Ten Iconic Coptic Leaders” (published by Archway Publishing) explores the inspiring journeys of 10 iconic Coptic leaders, five men and five women, who live or have lived in Egypt and have acclaimed success in their respective areas. Author Dr. Shahira Abdel Shahid says these leaders serve as role models for people worldwide, especially youth.
“This book is unique because it interviews contemporary Coptic leaders in depth, and records their success stories in order to be beacons for others,” Abdel Shahid explains. “The book shows how the leaders' characters were molded during stressful periods, which eventually led to their growth and success.”
Abdel Shahid adds that she wants to dispel the fallacy that a person cannot be successful because of personal hardships, negative circumstances or being a minority. “All of these leaders had their shares of challenges, struggles, and even failures, but successfully overcame them with their commitment to their mission, faith in God, hard work, persistence, continuous learning, and a firm focus on their missions and goals.”
Abdel Shahid says the book will appeal to readers because of its message of hope, inspiration and motivation. “It will encourage any person to aim for a successful and fulfilled life. It motivates readers, even if they are facing difficulties and challenges; to remain positive, have faith, tackle their challenges, pursue their mission, and become leaders in their areas of expertise.”
