We all are going to deal with negativity in our lives. Sometimes from our parents, sometimes from our siblings and sometimes from our coworkers but don’t ever, ever, ever, ever, ever let this deter you away from your goals. Negativity is going to come with success and negativity is going to come with those who are blessed with talents others aren’t capable of or they think they aren’t but don’t work hard enough to acquire that skill. One of my favourite boxer says “Hard work – dedication” and that is all there is to life. You have to put in time, put in effort and dedicate yourself to what you love in life. Some days, you’ll wake up and all the negative energy that you are surrounded by will break you down but you have to keep on going. Not because you have a lot of people to prove wrong but because this is your life and you are destined to accomplish these goals. Anything you want to do in life, it requires you to be positive. It requires you to plant a seed in your mind and believe you are capable of it. Not because you are arrogant or full of yourself but because you are confident in your talents, skills, abilities given to you by Allah SWT.
People in this world can assure you of your talents and skills but you must believe in them as well, in order for you to see them for yourself. Time is everything and everything happens at the right time but you must work for everything you desire in this life and the hereafter. Jannah (heaven) is not easy and shaytaan prevents you from that goal and dream and also, whatever your goals are in this life, people are going to prevent that too but you are your own person. The ideas you plant in your head, into your mind, you’ll live out. You see yourself as ugly and believe me, that is all you’ll ever be, is ugly. How you view yourself, how you speak to yourself, is how you’ll carry yourself and carry out your life.
Don’t carry yourself in a negative way nor view yourself in a negative way. Be optimistic about life and be optimistic about your capabilities and what is in store tomorrow. It’ll make living much easier and breathing much easier. Be confident and don’t surround yourself with those who are negative, they’ll do you more harm than good and don’t surround yourself with those complain about life either. Surround yourself with those who are positive as it’ll enable you to be positive and surround yourself with those who appreciate the blessings in life, it’ll help you appreciate yours too.
A positive mindset means everything to a person who wants to succeed and who wants to achieve their goals. This is you, a positive person but you must think of yourself in that manner. You must be confident. You must believe in everything you are capable of. Put your work in with hard work and dedication, make duaa (supplication) and insha’Allah, everything will fall into place. Either Allah SWT will protect you from an evil or bless you in this life or bless you in the hereafter. Whatever it is, it starts with a positive mindset, so be positive.
