Do you have a story that can change someone’s life today? Hadithi za GIBÉBÉ is a competition to collect inspirational stories from individuals all over Kenya. Wouldn’t it be great to share your story to inspire and positively influence someone’s life? Doing what we do, we have encountered ordinary individuals who have gone through extraordinary experiences; experiences with life altering lessons. We believe everyone has a story…and this is your chance to share your story with the world!
The beauty about this competition is that you get to choose your own topic based on GIBÉBÉ. GIBÉBÉ is a powerful message, brand and framework that inspires and transforms lives. The word GIBÉBÉ is derived from the three pillars it symbolizes…imaGIne, BElieve, BEcome…in Swahili, the word JIBEBE means to uplift yourself, in this case it would be relevant to think of it as improve yourself or transform yourself.
imaGIne, your foundation pillar, focuses on who you are, your strengths, your purpose and vision. You are who you are for a reason and there is greatness within you
BElieve, your defining pillar helps you define the mindset and attitude that will make a difference in your life by showing you that the impossible is possible and you can truly achieve whatever you desire.
BEcome, your breakthrough pillar helps you discover critical success skills such as leadership and branding that will help you realize your “imagined success path” and accomplish your goals.
Your Hadithi should be based on any of the above pillars. For instance under the imaGIne pillar, your story could focus on how you realized you purpose in life; a story under the BElieve pillar could talk about how you found and kept hope against all odds and a story under the BEcome pillar could focus on a drastic decision you made that changed your life for the better. Whatever your inspirational story, it should be based on any of the above pillars.
