The Financial Vicious Cycle


Back to the real matter, quality thinking yields quality results so spend time with individuals that would influence your thoughts positively. Your mindset goes a long way in helping you achieve your goals. Some people might try to discourage you, just because they couldn't achieve it does not mean you can't. Henry Ford says if you think you can't then you can't and if you think you can then you can. I am challenging you all to achieve financial growth. By being in a vicious cycle, I mean spending time with people whose thinking pattern are not of high quality. When you tell them about pursuing a goal, or when you start pursuing a goal, they come up with reasons for you to not go after that goal. You can do two things, face them and let your positivity rise above their negativity or just avoid them. The people in a vicious cycle remain stagnant and never achieve growth, cause the productive thinking of one will be discouraged by the thinking of another. So if you spend time with people that you notice that anytime you want to do something that will bring you growth ,they will just say something to discourage you then challenge their thoughts, you can help them leave their stagnation that way.
For individuals who are always coming up with reasons to not go after your goals that are good for you, for others and the community as a whole, you need to start challenging your thinking pattern. Remove the emotional barriers by taking steps toward achieving the goal, never procastinate. A lot of individuals have beautiful goals, beautiful ideas but let their thinking pattern discourage them from going after their goals. 'A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new' Albert Einstein so do not worry about mistakes. Aim for excellence not perfection.

While some people don't get tempted easily, others do. So if you get tempted easily, limit your contact with people who like spending money all the time (like wanting to hang out all the time) or people who can't stop talking about things they own. This will prevent you from spending money lavishly. Some cultures encourage people to use money to oppress others, please, do not be oppressed. Money should not be used as a tool to oppress others. Take steps toward your financial growth one step at a time through clean processes. Do not let the thoughts of others discourage you from achieving financial growth. Anyone can achieve financial growth with the right mindset. Good Luck. Challenge for the month for you all, save $300 in a halal bank account. Cheers!

Halal means anything that is lawful Islamically.

Work-life balance: all should attain it

Hello readers, today I will be writing about work-life balance. According to businessdictionary.com, work-life balance "is a comfortable state of equilibrium achieved between an employee's primary priorities of their employment position and their private lifestyle." All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, thus, you should find a balance between work and play. Here are some tips to help you achieve it.
1. Do not check your email (work) after working hours, this will help improve the quality of time you spend with your family and friends. Thus, you should not be distracted by work when spending time with your family and friends.

For example if you do not get to spend time in the evenings with your family during the week days due to coming back late from work, you should decide to spend one day a week and gradually increase it to two and then three till you get to spend the…
