This might sounds cheesy and I know you guys might have came across this quote for hundred and thousand of times.
'Be positive and everything gonna be positive'
'Think positive and everything gonna be alright'
I have heard about this quote for soooo many times. But, have we, or you, ever take a second of your time, sit and think deeply about this quote? Recently, I see so many people keep complaining things.
I'm stress. I cannot do this. I hate my life. Why am I so stupid. I give up. Life is always unfair.
Yes, I also have my 'ugh I'm done with my life or WHY.ALWAYS.ME' time. But, as I went through it, surprisingly, I can do that!
You know, don't waste your time overthinking, crying and complaining about what had happened. Life is too short for that. Find a solution instead of whining. Fail for the first time, it's okay, try another solution, fail again, try again and again, until the problem solved. Life goes on. Time is gold, time is precious. Don't waste your time doing things that have zero benefits.
Positive thinking really does help people in so many ways. Positive thinking can overcome stress, insecurity, disappointment etc. I am a girl that has a very high insecurity level. I always feel that I am not good enough for everything. My appearance my work my business and all. But, how long I have to be like that, always live in the dark world that full of low confidence level, insecurity, worrying about things. Then, I realized, that attitude will not gonna change my life, not gonna solve my problem and not gonna change me to be a better me. I complained a lot about my life but rarely ever I thank Allah for all the things have done for me. I don't want to stay in such life. I need to help myself because no one gonna do that for me. Change, change and change. That is the only way to overcome it. Think that you can do that, reward yourself if you have achieve something although it is just a small thing. Start step by step. One thing at a time and focus.
When bad things suddenly hit you, that doesn't mean that it's already at the end of the world. Learn to let go of something in your past, of something that is just an unimportant distraction or of trying to control what you cannot control. It can free up huge amounts of the energy and the time you have to use for something better and more fulfilling.When you worry about what others may think or say if you do something, remind yourself that the truth is that people don’t really care that much about what you do or not do. Bad things will always happen, but it’s how we manage it.
Always remember this:
If you are grateful, I would certainly give to you more, and if you are ungrateful, My chastisement is truly severe (Ibrahim, verse 7).
Sometimes, Allah might send a storm into your life, not to hurt you, but to heal you.
It is not always easy. But it can be life-changing.
