A lot of people complain that things are not working out or them. Whether it be academics, work or relationships. Verbal reactions are uttered such as ‘how could I fail?’, ‘why did he dump me?’, ‘why the heck am I not attracting potential employers?’ or even ‘my business is going nowhere!’
Dear readers, what you really are missing are the basics of success.
Rule no. 1: Be proactive. Having a reactive mindset is going to take you nowhere. Use the thing which is gifted to you which lies inside that skull of yours. Think before doing anything whether it be uttering a simple phrase or sentence. Don’t act on your instincts.
Rule no. 2: Time! Yes time! Things cannot change overnight. If you are expecting things to change instantly then your mistaken buddy. Alright there are lottery winners but is that really SUCCESS? It takes a full 365 days for the Earth to orbit the sun. How can one be successful overnight? So give your effort some space.
Rule no. 3: Take blessings of the people who really matter. Whether it be your teachers or parents, guardian or ustaad, listen to their stories and struggles. Do not react negatively towards them. Many of you might disagree that this has got to do nothing with success. Sorry there, you are mistaken again. There is always a heavenly touch in every success story.
Rule no. 4: Listen! No I mean you need to listen to whatever is being said. Instead of butting in and letting that tongue go blah and blah, press that pause button. Give the thing between your jaws a rest. Listening enables you to grasp information and ideas and what not.
The fifth and final rule is to BELIEVE! You can do this! If you do not believe in yourself, you are not going to go nowhere. Belief in yourself, your abilities will work for you. TRUST ME! Be truthful to yourself and keep crystal clear and positive intentions.
