Know the value of yourself and never let anyone ever put a value on you. Never let anyone put a value on your success or how you succeed because they are just individuals who are looking in from the outside. They never know what it has taken to be successful and what it’ll take to be successful. You never have anything to prove to anyone except yourself. The competition that you seem to be in, is a competition with yourself. There are no competitors in this race except the mind which you’ll need to overcome when you doubt your ability and where you are going.
It is not about the instant results because they are less satisfying but the results that come from continuous work, a struggle, a hardship, will make you satisfied and proud. Know a hardship is building an efficient, strong minded individual who has endured an experience that has left the mind to grow and mature.
Anything given easy, anything that you didn’t work for, that was just handed to you, will make you lazy, comfortable and will leave you no desire to progress, except to be given more. Comfort is the destroyer of change, so never get too comfortable where you are and always look to where you want to be. The past is building blocks for the present situation you are in and the present itself, will build a future for you, the future you want as long as the belief that whatever comes your way is never perceived as negative to bring you down. To take you away from what you thought was yours.
Always work towards what you want and look to excel in it, no matter what it is. A positive mind, makes for a healthy body and a negative mind will slowly destroy your health and yourself, it will also never let you progress to where you should be in life. Always think positive, no matter the shortcomings in life, no matter the hardships in life. You are being led in a direction that will benefit your life in the near future but you must constantly remind yourself to be positive about what has missed you cause it was going to miss you regardless and what is meant for you, was always going to make its course towards you. This doesn’t mean, you live lifeless with no functions at all but be functional and be functional in a direction of change that you would want in your life. For a life that you will want for the betterment of not only for yourself but for your family as well.
What you think of yourself, is how other will receive you, so think good, be confident and insha’Allah you’ll be received well. Complain less and be thankful more. It’ll take stress off the mind and help you receive the blessings with the fullness they should be received in.
This is just some random thoughts for this evening which I’d thought I’d share with you. Thanks for reading. Insha’Allah, it helps.
