...Will you settle on being just 'average' and get drowned in the noise or will you finally say enough is enough and I will ExCel? The choice is yours. You were created for greatness. Don't play small. The world needs your talents. You will have to face tough times - i do too. God created you for greatness. So what will it be? Tell me...average or the best?
We, as a human race, just complain too much!
"You say, "The country is messed up." That's like cursing the soil and the seed and the sunshine and the rain, which is all you've got. Don't curse all you've got. When you get your own planet, you can rearrange this whole deal. This one you've got to take like it comes." Jim Rohn
So let's appreciate ALL that Allah has blessed us with as He (swt) asks us; 'So Which Of Your Lords Favours Will You Deny?!'
Let's not be from amongst the ungrateful servants...and let's always have an attitude of gratitude...
...How do YOU spend your moments?
Work, study, fam, friends, kids, hobbies etc.
Know that each moment of ours is the only moment and once its gone it will never return.
Be in the moment, present and focused on the task - so you don't miss out on its importance.
Each moment is our only moment that knows the moment that was, is and will be - so spend each moment in the remembrance of Allah as we don't know which moment will be our last.
By doing good and fulfilling daily rights you're worshipping and in Allah's remembrance.
Appreciate those who you have this moment - for they may not be there in the next moment.
Each moment of ours is very powerful as it only takes a moment for something to happen.
Give someone special in your life the gift of moment today - when you talk to them be fully present, focused and appreciate that they are in your life.
May ALL your moments be blessed and in Allah's obedience - ameen!
Who do we place our trust in?
"Enough for me is Allah. There is no God but He. In Him I have placed my trust, and He is the Lord of the great throne."
Next time anything doesn't go to plan then close your eyes, take a deep breath and focus on Allah and know that He created us and He will get us through. Just hold on tight to His rope and never give up! :)
WBI notebooks ready please...
"Be grateful for what you have, while in pursuit of what you want". Jim Rohn
Important lesson because we often forget all the things we already have and whilst in search of new horizons we forget to utilise, appreciate, benefit and give thanks for what we've already been given.
Why in such a rush? Enjoy the things Allah has blessed you with and iA He (swt) will give you more.
If we rush then we will forget all the precious moments and we may be left with nothing.
So say; الحمد لله على كل حال
for everything we have and keep tawakul that Allah (swt) will bless us with more, iA!
