The A,B,C’s Of Success And Why Your Education Get’s You Nowhere.

There are many people with the highest degrees from the best schools that are still working dead end jobs. Being well educated or emersing yourself in information does not lead to success. Don’t get me wrong, education, information and learning about a subject are VERY important. However, they are not the most important aspects of your success. So what is it? What is the one thing that will determine your path to success? It’s summed up in one word…..ACTION! I like to keep things REALLY SIMPLE, because I’ve found that if something is complicated, it’s not being done correctly. Life, success, and creating a reality that exceeds your dreams are all simple, if you follow these simple steps. We’re going to use the A,B,C method from now on to break down everything you want to achieve into small, manageable steps. Here is the A,B,C method in simple terms. A = Action B = Belief C = Consistency If you combine these 3 elements, you’re guaranteed to find success in what you want to achieve. So now I’d like to break down these 3 elements a bit to explain exactly what I mean by each one. These points are the foundation of this guide and must be the basis of each and every thing that you want to acheive from this moment on. Action – Taking action is the point in time where you stop trying. It’s the very moment when you realize that “Trying” doesn’t exist. You simply can’t “Try” to do anything. You either are…..or you’re not. To make this point I’d like you right now, to take a pen and place it in front of you and try to pick it up…..Go ahead and try. Now, did you pick it up? Yes? Then you didn’t try, you did it. Place it down again, and try again. You’ll quickly see that you either are…or you’re not, picking up the pen. The same goes with “Trying” to do anything. People say it all the time….”I’m trying to lose weight” – “I’m trying to quit smoking” – “I’m trying this….I’m trying to do that….” It’s a habit that has been formed over time. The reality is, if you say that you’re “Trying” to do something, you don’t have the second critical element of success that we’re going to talk about next. Belief – Belief in yourself, belief that you WILL accomplish...

Quran Is the Guidance for Those Who Fear Allah and Believe

(In the Name of Allah (SWT), Most Gracious, Most Merciful, all praise and thanks are due to Allah, Lord of the Realms and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger (SAWS) and upon all his family and companions) Quran is the last book of guidance which was revealed on Our Beloved Prophet Rasulullah (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam). The Quran deals with the ultimate goal of mankind. Allah Ta’ala has clearly explained the goal and aim of our lives as Allah Ta’ala says in Quran: “I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me”. If someone wants to understand the core and essence of the Holy Quran he or she must have some characteristics and beliefs. Here are they: • first: who believe in the Unseen • second: who steadfast in prayer • third: who spend money in the way of Allah • fourth: who believe the Holy Quran and other books of Allah • fifth : who have the assurance of the Hereafter The second chapter of Quran talks about these characteristics as Allah says: “This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah. Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them; And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter”. the companions (Sahaba (Radhiy allaho anho) of Rasulullah (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) used to say first we learned Imaan (belief) from Rasulullah (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) and then we learned Quran. one can’t really understand the core of Quran without Imaan however it is such amazing Book that it opens up gates of guidance for every single human being no matter he/she is a Muslim or not. Quran says that the people who have the above characteristics would not only get guidance but also they are the ones who will prosper. The fifth verse of Surah Al-Baqarah / The Cow states: “They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.” on the other hand there are some unfortunate people who would not get guidance at all. Allah says to Rasulullah (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) that whether you warn them or not they will not become Muslims as Quran says : “As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to...

Perfectionism is Debilitating When You Have Bipolar Disorder

Learning to Thrive with Bipolar Disorder Many of us want things to be just right, but when it crosses over to needing to be perfect all the time, it becomes an impossible ideal that can never be reached. That becomes very frustrating and exhausting. What is “perfect” anyway, is it what you believe or what someone else believes? This becomes even more exhausting if you are trying to keep up with what is perfect for someone else like your mother-in-law or maybe even your own mother. If someone else is driving you to be perfect, you need to stop letting them rule your life. Once you have got all the other “voices” to stop pushing you to perfection, you then just need to work on yourself. Sometimes “Good Enough” is good enough. So what if you have a few spots on your dishes after they’ve been run through the dishwasher? Unless you’re having a major event or party going on, let it go, it’s good enough. So what if your house isn’t spotless and completely cleaned top to bottom? When you are in a depressed state, it’s hard to get out of bed sometimes, much less clean everything. So quit kicking yourself when you’re down. Your house doesn’t have to be perfect all the time. What other areas in your life are striving to be “perfect”? Finances, relationships, health, education, and your job are all areas that are important , but you don’t have to strive for perfection. Perfection is only an ideal that someone has arbitrarily set for themselves. What is good enough to be satisfactory may vary from person to person, but it should not drive you to a point of hopelessness because it’s not just right. It is okay to lower your standards. You may not get the highest grade in the class, but a “B” is still a worthy grade. So what if you are not the top athlete at the gym; if you are working on your goals, then it’s good enough. If you have goals that you are working on, whether it’s just to get out of bed today and take a shower because you are depressed, or to lose 25 lbs this year, then you are already ahead of many people that aren’t moving forward in their life. And those of us who have bipolar disorder, may have to shift our goals day-by-day...

If Being Ambitious Makes Me a Bitch – Please Capitalize the “B”

As I get older, and hopefully, wiser, I tend to become more of a rebel. The one way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t. I wish I could say I’ve always been this way but that’s not so. It’ a trait I’ve developed along the way, likely because I’ve had to take risks and I’ve found that much of the time, I’ve been successful. Until recently, I didn’t think of myself as ambitious. I thought of myself as surviving and doing what I had to do. I also followed what has been a trait for as long as I can remember. I don’t like to do the same thing for too long. So, I was always open for a new task, challenge or project. The more different things I did, the more I began to realize what I enjoyed doing. Because the job I was in, at the time, provided me with many benefits in my single parenting, I did the best I could to find new challenges within that setting. Again, I didn’t put the tag of ambition on this behavior. That is, until a man I worked with, said to me “You’re so ambitious”. Now, this was not in any way meant to be a compliment. It was clearly a negative judgment. We had the same job title. He seemed to be content to just do his job, while that wasn’t enough for me. At the time, I wasn’t sure how to respond to this, and to be honest, I didn’t think about it too much. However, not soon after that comment, I made the decision to have a home built. I can’t tell you the number of people, male and female who tried to convince me that this was too ambitious for a woman who is also a single mother, and to be honest, not at all wealthy. No matter how much research I’d done, initially these people had me questioning myself. But then something happened. I’m not quite sure where it came from but I’m sure glad it did. For the first time I can truly remember, I become totally rebellious and decided “I’ll show them.” And I did! I’m still living in that house. I love my house for many reasons but one of them is that it was the gateway to my overt ambition and my pride in...

Growing Wings

My wife and I were privileged this week to participate in a Se’udat Hoda’ah, a Thanksgiving Feast, offered by a family that had been pushed to the edge and experienced a great miracle. Their extended families and incredible friends held onto them for dear life, and saved them from stepping over the precipice into hopelessness. Debbie and I were convinced that God was observing the gathering, deriving great Nachas, pleasure in the mutual love and support, faith and determination, of His children. On our way home, inspired by the event, I realized that the great miracle was not that the family was saved from falling over the edge, but that they stepped over the edge, and rather than fall, they grew wings, and soared to unbelievable heights. I’m convinced that their miracle was God’s response to their new wings. My close friend who, battling his second bout with cancer was, with his family, pushed over the edge, but he did not fall; he flew. He didn’t just survive; he grew wings. He is stronger, more attuned to life, perhaps even funnier than before. Torah, as life, speaks differently to people who know how to fly: “Moses began explaining the Torah (Deuteronomy 1:5),” five weeks before he died. The verse doesn’t say that he continued his explanations of the past forty years, but that he began the explanation only now in his Final Lecture! Moses could not have begun his explanation any earlier because the people had yet to grow their wings. As long as they had the greatest prophet in history, they could always turn to God for answers. They had the love of Aaron and the vision of Miriam. They were secure. Step by step they were pushed to the edge. Miriam died. Aaron was gone. The generation that experienced Sinai was gone. The final push over the edge was the realization that Moses would die, and they would have to go on without him. The people were sad, but confident. They were frightened, but ready to move on. They grew wings, and now Moses could begin explaining the Torah as it is; not as an instruction book for dealing with straightforward situations, but as a manual for people who want to grow wings and fly with independence. This moment was the real beginning of Torah. The first Tisha B’Av was when the spies returned from Israel with a...
