"I'm sure i can do this!"
At 1st, you might be 'confident' enough when you decide on something that you know it could change your life better (in some ways, eventhough it seems not to others)
"Hey, don't you know that's impossible! It's hard.. I'm sure you can't... bla.. bla.. bla (sort of thing)
Then you might be dichotomous, uncertain about your decisions (on anything!). Whether to go with it, or to 'back off'..
Sometimes it's hard to make decisions for our own life, agree? But there's always a solution for this and maybe MORE!. As i'm practising it and it works for me, i'm sure it will too, for you insyaAllah..
1. BEGIN FROM POSSIBLE.
This principle is well explained in a saying of Aishah. She said: "Whenever the Prophet had to choose between two options, he always opted for the easier choice." (Al-Bukhari)To choose the easiest option means to begin from the possible, and one who begins from the possible will surely reach his goal.
(I got this tip from an article posted in Madina.com. MashaAllah. Nice one!)
So, if you don't actually know how or where to start(in making decisions), follow this tip, you know what is beyond your reach, am i right? (^_^)
"Errr...what if what i've decided to do is something hard to do?? Many people told me it's hard and impossible, ya know.."
Well, many people told you it's hard, but for some people, it seems so easy! Eventhough it's hard, some people managed to succeed..
Well, just stop from being pessimist., be optimist, will ya?? Look, observe carefully and learn from those who succeed.. Just like our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).Even Thomas Carlyle said that other than being a hero, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is also the BEST example for human kind.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?? A non-muslim is actually telling you this! So, you should really follow Prophet(peace be upon him) steps as he has shown us the way of achieving supreme success in this world.
"But people are still telling that i've made a WRONG decision because it's not easy.."
Here's something for you then;
2. TO SEE ADVANTAGE IN DISADVANTAGE
In the early days of Mecca, there were many problems and difficulties. At that time, a guiding verse in the Qur’an was revealed. It said: "With every hardship there is ease, with every hardship there is ease." (94:5-6).This means that if there are some problems, there are also opportunities at the same time. And the way to success is to ignore the problems and avail the opportunities.

There, Allah has told you to believe in yourself. Just don't tell me that you don't trust Allah's promises~
Bout the 'hard-tough-decision' that you've made and that many people seem to disagree, you can actually choose..It's all about
'HOW YOU THINK' aka 'THE POWER OF THOUGHTS'.
As what has been said by Ayoob, who has been so positive in his life:
"Each morning I wake up and say to myself,' Ayoob, Allah has given you two choices today.
a. You can choose to be in a good mood or you can choose to be in a bad mood.' I choose to be in a good mood.
b.Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
c. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life."
Ahah! See, told you~
Just look at the bright side of eveything eventhough the 'cloudy-gloomy-dark' side do exist. Hey, it's up to you to choose where to look at. As i said before, eventhough there are people who failed, there are also people who succeed. So, why don't you become one? (^_^)
p/s: I sometimes feel 'down', A LOT! Not certain bout my own decision. This morning i sent a message over the ym and asked my dad bout a TOUGH-goin-to-kill-me kinda decision. What enlightened me a bit was his answer:
My dad: "Yes u can becoz someone else did that too."
It's just that, i am sometimes lost focus. And bout this, my dad had his saying right:
My dad: "U have to be fully commited to it"
Exactly! I just have to be committed to it because i know that Allah is always wit me (and you too!).. As long as we work hard n smart, be committed n istiqamah, be more patient, always try to be better, tawakal.. InsyaAllah the success could be ours! (^_^)
Another Good Day - Bismillah.. Assalamu'alaykum.. I was told off by a teacher on how to do my work this morning, as I missed few tasks due to my ignorance or negligence (and ...
