...What you focus on increases! Energy flows where intention goes. So if you focus too much on the negative you'll experience negative things. You have power over your thoughts and you can snap out of a negative state straight away. No one is controlling our thoughts except ourselves. So focus on what your really want in life not what you don't want!
...Do everything with ehsaan - excellence! The reason why our pious predecessors achieved so much with so little is because they believed they could achieve -they believed God would help them - they understood their purpose and they gave it their all! So, forget 100% - its all about 150% ExCel Mode!
...The only and best self-help book for us is the one from the Creator of the heavens and earth Himself. Yes, even I read a lot of inspirational and motivational books and yes they do help me - but firstly and foremostly it is the Qur'an - because it has all the answers! Pick up your physical copy or your mus'haf (not digital/online version) and reconnect back to God through His words. Now THIS is pure heart and soul therapy. Try it and feel the change and the difference :)
Everything in moderation. When both the soul and body are aligned then we can feel peace throughout. Don't look after the one and neglect the other. Usually we spend so long working on our outer appearance or our body that we neglect the soul. Or we become uber spiritual and fail to fulfil the rights of our body.
"You say that you are just a body, but inside of you is something greater than the Universe." Imam Shafi (rahimullah)
...Don't blindly follow! What's stopping you from living your life? God created you for a great purpose. We all have to work hard to make our dreams a reality. Don't just be inspired and motivated by a speaker and their words but be motivated to actually take the first step towards positive change and making a difference in your own life, the life of your loved ones and then the world!
...Still looking for happiness? Where to find it? Happiness is in the NOW - its in the PRESENT - its in this MOMENT. No excuses. You're online now - so go read something inspirational and motivational. You can change your state from unhappy to happy - the key words are YOU CAN! You're alive so be happy God gave you a chance to do something with your life - something good and beneficial insha'Allah :)
...If not YOU then WHO? If not NOW then WHEN? What's stopping you living your dreams? What's stopping you living your Purpose. You got one Life in this world - make yours count! :)
...Learning doesn't stop when you leave school at age 16! Real learning begins when you're out of those class rooms and into the world. Yes go back to college and university - I totally recommend that - but learning isn't restricted to a classroom. Each waking day has a lesson to teach us and the biggest one is that we are breathing and so we have a chance to make mends and make our dreams a living reality. Give thanks to God for this wonderful opportunity and become a life long learner :)
...Even my emaan has its high and low points. Because I'm a human and something may happen that will bring me back down. I see it as a reflection time and reconnection time. Reflection time on what or who is emotionally draining me or whether I've stumbled somewhere in my worship and reconnection time to reconnect back with the word of God and to reconnect back to Him. Never despair in the mercy of Allah! ♥
God doesn't leave us - we are the ones who are ungrateful for all His blessings and turn away from Him! When in bad times we want God to help us and when in good times we fail to give thanks. Why? To God we belong and to Him is our return. Let's have an attitude of gratitude. For which of our Lords favours will we deny? Have a Blessed day.
