...You always know what you want to be. We know this as children but somehow forget this as we grow up. Look back to your childhood what did you enjoy? I was always reading, writing, playing with my dolls and teddys, scheming businesses (yes, even before I was 10 year old!) and being a teacher to invisible children. I still remember my handbag, whistle and empty mug of coffee lol. I love writing and always knew I was going to be a writer amongst other things. I'm writing, teaching and helping people find their unique purpose. Know your purpose and you'll lead a life of peace and happiness
...I seriously dislike competitive people especially those who get jealous and want to see others fail. Success is from sincere hard work and from God alone and there's plenty of room at the top for everyone to succeed. I'm inspired and motivated by others energy and zeal which pushes me to work harder - it inspires me to believe in me and motivates me to achieve. Note to competitive and jealous people - I'm extremely nice - but, seriously, don't push it as I won't even look at you twice. I have zero-tolerance for such souls and I'll make sure they know it. To the rest of you awesome souls who are inspired and motivated to be the best - remember, theirs something so uniquely special about you that only YOU can offer that to the world. Believe in you and go achieve it. You are only YOU and not no one else ever!
...Focus on what you do want in life and not on what you don't want. Energy flows where intention goes. Most times we believe we are not worth it or don't deserve it so we put all our intention, energy and focus into the 'I don't want/can't have' so we don't get that which we want. Start right now and focus on achieving your goals, dreams and ambitions insha'Allah and you'll soon see doors of opportunity open right in front of you.
...The only one you need to compete with or prove yourself to is yourself - not no one else, EVER! Work daily on being the better version of you. It's between you and God only! No one else has or will walk your path and no one has a right to tell you how to live your life. You're worth it and perfect just the way you are!
...You are not a nobody - you are a somebody - somebody very unique and special and what you specifically have to offer to the world - no one else can! Don't be fooled by others achievements and accomplishments and think you can't - YOU CAN! Live your dreams and believe in yourself.
How do we deal with each other? Have a personal reflection moment as non of us are immune from our ego. We're human and a work in progress. However take inspiration from the following and get motivated to become the better version of you now insha'Allah. “The manner you deal with people in is the same way Allah will deal with you, both in this world and in the hereafter.” Ibn Qayyim. Now THIS is powerful!
...Everything happens for a reason. There are no accidents or coincidences. Each incident is linked to another. Each person is linked to that situation. Everyone comes into your life for a reason. You're sent to someone's life for a reason. I've learned so much in such a short time. All those who were once 'random' souls are linked to my world in one way or another today. And once again my unique purpose in life is renewed. Never dismiss a situation or person. We're all linked. And I believe in miracles. Watch them unfold right in front of you
...There are no coincidences or accidents. Only Qadr. So it was written - so it shall be done!
...Compliment each other - not compete with one another - and if you compete then compete in goodness and deen - aspire to be like our pious predecessors. JazaakAllah khair to YOU beautiful soul who inspires and motivates me daily!
...Who said you have to change yourself or fit in to succeed? Who said a Muslimah can't succeed with a hijaab and abayah? Almost all my coaches/mentors and teachers/trainers (expect for my Islamic Sciences/studies) are non-Muslim. Non of them have ever said I need to dress or act in a certain way to 'fit in' or 'succeed'. They respect me for who I am and what I stand for and are actually more welcoming of me than most Muslims. Moral - sell yourself to the devil himself and you'll lose both this world and next. Stay steadfast holding God's hand and success in both worlds is yours. Try it and just be YOU!
