May Peace be Upon You
How are you feeling right now?
or just feeling down?
Nevertheless of what happen to you, I pray to all of you so that you will be in peace and prosperity the entire time. Today I just want to share about how to improve your motivation by follow what the most successful people did to improve their motivation in achieving their dream.
The most important thing that you must set in yourself is your intention. You must buried your intention deep down in your heart so that in whatever you do, you will remember about it. Next, the intention that you have set in your heart must NOT be solely purpose for you but it must be set for the sake of mankind. What makes it different between success people and extraordinarily success people is the purpose of their intention.
Let's take Bill Gates for example here. After 5 years Microsoft had been established he had set his intention "I want in every single house, there will be at least one computer sitting on the table". From here, we can see that he wanted everyone to be able to access the information easily at the tip of their finger.
Next, we take our famous martial arts actor Bruce Lee.
"I, Bruce Lee, will be the first highest paid Oriental super star in the United States. In return, I will give the most exciting performances and render the best of quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end of 1980 I will have in my possession $10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve inner harmony and happiness.
Even he died four years after wrote this letter, he still succeed in achieving his dream and whats more interesting is that it exceed his goals where he gains more than 10,000,000 USD and had been considered the most famous Asian American Actor. Although his intention is for mankind, his retribution of effort also need to be done in such a way that it is equal with his dream. This is one of the knowledge that you need to absorb and practice.
There is also a video that I saw yesterday which states that "You reap what you sow" which means if you did not take any action, then there will be no outcome. On the other hand, if you work hard on it, surely you will get the outcome and even it can be more than what you can imagine. May Allah ease.
For the last example, I quoted from our prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H. hadith which is the first hadith from book of 40 Hadith.
"Actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended. Whoever migrates with an intention for Allah and His messenger, the migration will be for the sake of Allah and his Messenger. And whoever migrates for worldly gain or to marry a woman, then his migration will be for the sake of whatever he migrated for."From this hadith, it states that if your intention is for Allah, then you will get Allah bless which you will earn his rewards but if your intention is other than Allah, then you will get it but you will not earn his rewards. So in whatever intention that you have decided, please fixed in your heart that it is for the sake of mankind and for Allah. May Allah ease your effort in achieving your dream.
Lastly, what I want to point out are
1. Your intention must be set for the sake of mankind benefit and Allah bless.
2. Your retribution of effort must be equivalence with your dream.
May Peace be Upon You
