Peace be upon you, beautiful human being!
You don’t even how how powerful you are. I mean, I discover something new about the human potential every single day, and yet, I feel…
Like I know nothing. That’s how incredibly infinite the human soul is…full of endless mysteries.
There is, like, SOOOOO much to share!!! Sometimes, I have to admit, the fact that there are so many reflections and lessons to share often stopped me from posting consistently.
The old me would make excuses limiting myself. I used to think about how long it would take to put everything together.
I would ask myself, “Who am I to be a #1 NYT Internationally sold-out best-selling author? Who am I to share all of these brilliant ideas? Who would want to listen to me? These ideas are so simple, everyone probably already knows them. Someone way more brilliant and talented than me will share them. Who do I think I am to deserve this???”
And uncomfortably, this would stop me from taking any action…and then, nothing would be shared…which would benefit no one…
This held me back from being consistent. This led me to procrastinate. This led me to the mistaken belief that I needed to be perfect before I started!
Not anymore, folks. After listening to inspirational podcasts with people I look up to, I’ve realized that everyone goes through this…the difference is, the people who make their dreams come true don’t take it as an excuse.
My dreams are MY responsibility. I am cheering myself on! And I believe with every fiber of my being, from the depths of my heart’s core, I finally believe…
In me. ❤
Today, a new level of Motivational Mishi has been unlocked! By The Infinite Grace of God.
Today, I look in the mirror with all of my perfect imperfections, and fill my own cup to the BRIM with self-love, with an unwavering belief in me. There is no one out there who is “me-er” than me!
Today, I take my power back!
*does a little dance & twirls around* Hehe.
I’m going to follow the brilliant advice that I received in full just yesterday…and start small. I am just going to start.
And then, I’m going to keep going, even when it’s uncomfortable, even when I don’t really want to…one small, consistent step at a time! And with God’s Infinite Grace, He Will Make every single one of my dreams a reality, beyond my imagination!
In sha Allah! (As God Wills)
Over 1400 years ago, my beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him ﷺ) shared:
“Do good deeds properly, sincerely and moderately and know that your deeds will not make you enter Paradise, and that the most beloved deed to Allah is the most regular and constant even if it were little.“Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) ﷺ
God Loves consistency! And what’s more…He Loves it even if what you’re doing is taking one tiny step, every single day!
After all, it takes time for the sun to rise and light up the whole, wide world 🙂
But…if it didn’t start peeking over the horizon, one ray at a time, we would forever be in darkness! And that’s definitely not a world I would want to live in…thank God for the sun’s faith in God, and simultaneously, in itself!
OK, so I wanted to share another HUUUUUGEEE tip that really stuck with me. When you start an instagram to have a positive impact on the world, even if one person watches your live, or no one does, so what?!
As long as you’re getting your “reps” in, getting your practice runs in, you are WINNING allll the way! You get to practice in front of yourself, and you get to cheer yourself on! Your heart soars with love and joy, and you know that…God Is Smiling upon you, too ❤
It doesn’t matter if you’re ready or not. You were designed to win at the game of life, so just get up and play!
Yes, you might make a thousand mistakes, or even a million! The only “but…” you should remember is this:
But as long as you don’t give up on yourself, you’ll keep getting better. Ultimately, victory is guaranteed for you. Accept this reality, and embrace it fully. Absorb it into every pore of your being.
It is so refreshing to hear from humans (just like you and me) who are crushing their personal goals, and are vulnerable enough to admit that they still make mistakes…but that’s never stopped them! They just keep going. One small, consistent step at a time. And that’s the key to their success.
One thing that has always helped me is really laying myself bare on the prayer mat. Telling Allah alllll of my problems, anxieties, deepest darkest fears, and even the feelings I’m ashamed of having…I spill out everything that makes me uncomfortable, or disturbs the peace of my heart.
You have nothing to hide ‘cuz guess what? He Knows it already!
On the other hand, when you become like a water bottle that submits humbly on the ground, you ease the burden on yourself. You empty out what’s in your heart so that you are free to receive His Infinite Love. And that is how you change the world!
Remember, all heroes start from zero. Allah Is The Most Generous Lord, and He Is Also The Most Just. Everything balances out. So yes, all heroes start from zero, just like you & me, but they (we) make sure to start!
It’s time to get out of my own way. It’s time to let my heart shine. It’s my time!
Bismillah! (With the name of Allah (Arabic: God), The Only One Worthy of our Love & Devotion)
With a cup full of fierce passion & SO much Love!!!
Your up-and-coming #1 NYT Internationally Sold-Out Best-selling author (in sha Allah!!!),
P.S. The brand-new Mishi answers to herself, and she will be posting 2x weekly starting already: Monday and Thursday! Looking forward to being held accountable, and being forever consistent – like I was destined to be! In sha Allah!!!
Here’s an inspirational poem to help you realize who has had the free will, the power to become all along:
