Blogging is becoming more than just a past time to me, I like writing posts and I have lots of ideas that could be started in a minute but I just don’t. I want to say it’s because I watch so many already successful people and I compare them with myself thus thinking there’s no point because someone else is better when really I should be using it as a tool to learn what they do and be amazing myself because no one can be a better me than me. So, with that being said here are a few habits I’m going to put into practice religiously so I feel good about myself to work successfully and feel like I deserve it.
PRAY 5 TIMES A DAY -> I am a Muslim and I believe, there is no God but Allah and Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is His messenger, a pillar of Islam (after believing) is to pray 5 times a day, this might sound insane to some but I believe that I need to do this for Allah to keep me on the right path and to guide me through my struggles. Even if you don’t believe in a religion it’s good to spend 5mins remembering to be grateful for what you have and to think about what you want and doing it 5x a day will make sure you keep in check.
BE NICE -> This isn’t really advocated a lot when thinking of success but when I think of the kind of person I want to be, nice is a word I’d like to be characterised by. It is a must for the future of this world to leave your mark on another’s heart. Be nice to those around you, be nice to nature and to the Earth you walk on, not so it will be nice to you but simply be nice because it is the right thing to do; it can be more work but it is always worth it.
EAT WELL -> This is key to doing good for yourself physically, listen to your body more carefully. For me personally, I’m lactose intolerant so I need to appreciate myself and my body enough to say “No” to foods that contain dairy (yes even pizza) because my body gives negative feedback. There are alternatives for practically everything so if I really craved pizza I can make my own with lactose-free cheese.
DO THE WORK -> If you take anything from this post let it be this, put in the effort, go through the blood, sweat and tears to get to where you want to go. That could be going to the gym on a rainy day or even making a post when you feel like a failure just do whatever you need to, it is hard to but enjoy the process because everything for your work is a stepping stone to your goals; if nothing it adds to a good story. Imagine talking about the struggles and being able to say despite it all, I did it.
Well, that’s it from me, I know these aren’t necessarily practical things like wake up earlier but I wanted to give some more thought-provoking advice to work on myself. I do watch and read a tonne of motivational videos so this could just a mesh of them, either way, please I’d love if you let me know what you consider to be a #1 tip to being successful.
