Assalam alaykum warahmatullah,this is the first article under these series of awaking muslim sisters.As every one who is touching this magazine must have his or her own ambitions in mind,may this article act as a leading pace to all of you inshaallah amiin.
Unless you shape your life,circumstances will shape it for you.you have to work,sacrifice,invest and persist to get the results you want.choose them well.you can’t start your planning until you know where you want to go.your are the sculptor of your own image.Have others already done what you want to do?study them and do what they did.start any where,at any time.stop worrying about what others think about what you can or cannot do.Believe in your self and your abilities.Have the self-confidence to challenge your current situation.This is your life to live,its day by day and step by step.
Write down your goals.Only three percent of people have written goals and only one percent review those written goals daily.Be in that elite one percent.Visualize the attainment of your goals often.you will only become great and happy as the goals you choose. In setting goals remember not to complicate matters.Think before you act,look for the simple ways or answers first where less again and again.The difference between the successful people and others is not whether you make mistakes or even temporarily fail,but how you respond.
In setting goals one has to be frugal.separate your wants from your needs.you want to work for all your need,not necessarily for all your want.you do not have to sentence your self to a life time of hard labour for the false trapping of status.living on less can eventually yield much more.The simpler you make your life,the easier it will be to maintain.Think in terms of moderation.it is easier to buy things than to sell them.you can make a confortable life your self by finding contentment in the things you already have and holding reasonable expectations.
Make today special.many people enjoy using their first few minutes of the day for their reflective time.How did yesterday go?what do you do to accomplish today?what will be the most important?This,ofcourse,becomes your prioritized to-do list.How will today vary from your usual routine?can you think of any small things that you can do?perhaps there is some thing that you’ve been avoiding that,if you do it,would make you feel especially proud of your self.Give each day a specific pursose.
