Tip of the day on Being More Positive with a verse from Al-Quran:
Day 14: Seek Your Will, And You Will Find Your Power.
Allah s.w.t. says in Surah Al-i-Imran, verse 159:
فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِّنَ اللَّـهِ لِنتَ لَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ كُنتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لَانفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ ۖ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ
﴾وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الْأَمْرِ ۖ فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّـهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ ﴿١٥٩
So by mercy from Allah, [O Muhammad], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult them in the matter. And when you have decided (found your purpose and will), then rely upon Allah. Indeed, Allah loves those who rely [upon Him]. (159)
Surah Al-i-Imran, 3:159
There are so much lessons to be learned from the verse above. Especially in terms of management and leadership. Like you, I am still a student in learning the principles of leadership and management. We will discuss these 2 topics in other opportunities.
Today I would like you to look at the verse above and focus on the word ‘azm. In this word there are lots of meanings but for this context I chose the word WILL. Will is a very powerful word, it is the word that summons the power to change a person, move people, build future and grow an empire!
Where does will power comes from? Will power comes from PURPOSE. The Higher the purpose, the higher the will power. For us Muslims our purpose of doing the things we do is never only for this world, it is also connected to attaining the pleasure of Allah in hereafter!
You may want to ask why do we need to seek our will power? The secret is this. Life, my friend does not always choose the best. Life always choose the MOST WILLING! If you are willing to connect to Allah s.w.t. and find your higher purpose, life will do its very best, to make sure that you become the chosen one for that higher purpose.
Yesterday we plant the SEED, today we nourish it with the WILL POWER by connecting our intention with PURPOSE.
Today, list out the names of people that you feel close to and write beside their names how can you be a miracle to them?
I pray to Allah s.w.t. that you will find your WILL POWER by looking for your HIGHER PURPOSE.
Have an energetic day filled with purpose, power and positivity!
