...Being patient is one of the most highly valued virtues we can have yet it is one of the most painful when our hearts and souls are broken. What do we do? Turn to the Creator of our soul and ask Him to grant us that patience. We have to train ourselves and eventually it really does become a virtue :)
Things happen. Their supposed to happen. Its life. So things happen and we get thrown off track. We thought we were moving forward but no back to square one! Why? Maybe there's a lesson we haven't learnt yet? In moments like these its always good to reconnect with your purpose again. Why were you created? Where are you going? What should you be doing? These questions will help you back on track each time insha'Allah.
...Anticipate change in life and don't become too complacent in your ways. If things don't go your way then you'll find it difficult to move on or think of new ideas. Keep learning always. Learn something new every day. Learn a new subject, a new language, sign up to a new course. Have a strategy for yourself - for all areas of your life. If you need help on that then sign up to one of my coaching packages now and that's right let's get you living the best version of you now insha'Allah :)
...Don't become a victim of blind loyalty but follow the truth. When your hero/heroine falls it'll devastate your soul leading to either severe depression or severe anger - and you don't wana fall down either pit. You're worth way too much for all that. Always stand for the truth!
...When someone (especially loved ones or young ones) talk and go on and on about a particular topic or subject just hear them out and encourage them in it - especially if it is a subject at school or a new hobby. What has happened is that they have now discovered something that has struck a chord and aligned with their soul. Each of us are unique in our ways and we have what we enjoy. That's right. Don't put anyone down. But encourage them to learn. It will develop them and enhance their growth. Just because we may not like it - that's ok, is it not, as we would want them to respect what we enjoy as a hobby too! :)
Don't be too harsh on yourselves. Give yourselves permission to be human. We all make mistakes. That's how we learn. Give yourselves permission to learn. This will help you move forward much quicker. That's right. Give yourselves permission to be you! :)
God gives us the same lesson over and over again until we actually learn from it and then we will be ready to move on. But when will we learn from this lesson? Its up to you - you decide :)
...Sometimes we get so caught up in our own bubble that we forget others around us. Yes, do look after you - you are priority. But if someone knocks on your door then be the light to shine in their darkest moment. God has chosen YOU to be that light for them. And trust me, you'll get your turn too! :)
...Quality and professionalism comes at a price. If you want to ExCel in your life then you have to pay for the courses, workshops, lectures with not only your time but actual 'money'. That's the only way you'll create the life of your dreams and truly use your skills and abilities for the greater good. Stop settling for less or always wanting free stuff. Invest in yourself and life.
...Not happy with the status quo? Change it! Make your own path. Follow your heart. Who said you can't do it? If 'they' can - so can you! ;)
