Your success should never be about any individual

I read an article about someone saying someone called her a nobody and because of that she had to work hard to become a somebody. First of all no one is a nobody, we are all creations of God and that makes you special. No one can make you feel inferior without your permission. Only a shallow person will call someone a nobody. Secondly your quest to be successful should never be about anyone.
I watched a movie and the woman said in the movie (I don't want to go into details) because of what you did to me, and that is why she worked so hard to be who she is today. A guy once told me he wants to be very rich and famous so his name can be in their faces (the people that wronged him). His friends blanked him when he needed financial help. When someone makes such statement all I see is pain and bondage. Like you have locked yourself up. You want to be financially successful to prove a point to someone or some people. My dears when you do that, you are attaching unneccessary importance to the individuals and you have not forgiven them. When you hold on to things like that, you are just going to suffer, you have to let go, forgive them. Forgiveness does not mean you have to reconcile with them. It means you have nothing against them.
Your motivation to be successful should come from a good place. You want to do something so as to be productive. Allah loves productivity and it should never be about anybody. I want to share my successes with my loved ones definately, its not because I want to prove a point to them but because I want to share the joy with them. Some individuals are successful but are not contented. Some are contented with what they have but they know that there is always a room for growth and that is what it should be. Focus on enjoying successes from the inside.
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. 2. When you decide to improve the situation of your work life balance, take it one step at a time. 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…
Hello readers, it has been a while. Hope you did not miss me much, the good news is I am back now. Today, I will be writing about competence. Competence is the ability that enables a company or an individual to deploy its resources effectively. It is neccessary for a company to have a competence target in all its business activities so as to deliver value to its customers. This will help create a competitive advantage for the company. Competencies must provide value to customers. It must be unique or able to develop greatly or be better than that of competitors. New products and services must be able to be developed as a result of the competence. It must be difficult for other competitors to obtain or imitate. Continually producing high quality products can make a company become a market leader (which is a core competence) as it provides a company with a competitive advantage. With high quality, higher prices can be demanded by the company from customers and the company will also be able…
