It's up to you...
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
...So be courageous!
Friday: I Believe!
...Believe in Yourself - because if you don't then no one else will!
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret to success.” Norman Vincent Peale
Do your best, make a prayer and let God do the rest.
If you believe it then you can achieve it, iA!
"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I don’t have it in the beginning." Mahatma Gandhi
...And as the proverb goes; 'When the Student is Ready the Teacher Appears'.
Believe you can achieve whatever you wish to achieve and make sincere dua to Allah and He will open the doors of opportunity for you - the 'teacher' will appear to teach you all the skills you need to achieve what you believe.
Here's some quick soul therapy for you iA.
...We ALL have that inner 'Peter Pan' - that inner child who embraced creativity to learn and grow - that we buried as we got older!
As a child you do things because you feel like it, you want to learn, you grow and you are happy.
As an adult you want to justify everything and have a reason for doing it - otherwise its just crazy!
This kills our creativity and our imagination - both can also lead to being unhappy (and boring!).
Today do one thing which you did as a child or teen.
Whatever it is from reading a book in the tree house, painting, gardening, lego, board games, go-karting, whatever - it has to be personal to YOU and what made YOU happy.
Sound crazy? That's what adults always say - don't matter - just for one day be crazy and do something you always enjoyed doing when you were younger :)
Thursday: The Path
"Let events flow in their predestined path,
And do not sleep except with a clear mind,
Between the period of the blinking of the eye and its opening, Allah changes things from one state to another.”
*Moral: Do not worry too much about events in your life. Do your best, have full faith and leave Allah to do the rest. For worry leads to confusion, anger and frustration. He who created you will make a way for you. In the end it'll all be ok iA!
Monday: •¤• Time For A Change •¤•
...Thinking about some positive changes in YOUR life?
"Life and business is like the changing seasons. You cannot change the seasons, but you can change yourself. Therein lies the opportunity to live an extraordinary life - the opportunity to change yourself." Jim Rohn
And we know that Allah Himself says that He does not change a condition of a people until they change it themselves - first.
He (swt) will help us, as soon as we decide to help ourselves.
So NOW's the chance to make positive change in your life and live the life you always wanted upon the deen and prepare for the best akhira, iA!
Will you take this opportunity to change for the better?
