Hi assalamualaikum. Have you ever felt like you're not giving your best? As if you could be so much more. As if you are not using your full potential. The reasons are either you don't know how, you fear of messing up or you're just merely afraid of social judgement. I know i have. So when this happens, who do we blame? If you give it a deep thought, you'll discover that there's no use of pointing fingers to others, because in the end it is us stopping our own selves. We are the ones tying the knots and chains, binding ourselves from proceeding, from succeeding. If we don't know how, learn. If we fear of messing up, practice. If we are afraid of social judgement, ignore. Remember the ancient phrase, 'a journey of a thousand miles starts with one step. Who's step? Theirs or yours?
Have the will,
plan your strategies,
shed some sweat,
and pray hard.
Screw negativity, and chase those dreams. You are the one who creates your reality. No one else can do it for you. No one else can change you. It is you, just you. As long as what you're doing is right, go for it. Seek Allah's help. Starve to be a better human being. Hunger to be a better muslim. Feed those dreams. Double your effort for it with all your strength and capacity, faith and sagacity. Have the tenacious spirit and inexorable pertinacity. Hold tight to them and never ever let go. Break free, and rebel to your fears. Nothing or no one can stop you without God's will. So on your marks, get set, and go.
Untangle yourself. Get out of the trap that you've created.
Clear your mind and set your thoughts free.
Escape from your own shadow, be brave, don't shrink.
You deserve to be happy.
