Everyone of us has a different definition of what success is. Some has it defined as when they finally achieve what they’ve been dreaming of ,others define it as when they overcome a fear of theirs. Success is pretty sweet, and in that moment when hit the target after many times of shooting happiness and pride will fill your heart. We all deserve to feel that happiness but in order to get there one must aim before shooting, set a goal and be determined to reach it despite all the difficulties one must never give up until that arrow hits the red circle, until you get exactly what you wanted. Setting your aim is not an easy task and sometimes you just don’t know what you want. There are times when i want to be a doctor, a surgeon to be exact then I try to convince myself that its just from the grey’s anatomy overdose, I tell myself that i don’t have a heart that strong to handle being surgeon but the truth is we are all capable all we need is that moment of confidence , that moment of determination and acknowledgment that nothing could stand in our way and that those fears we have are just bumps in the road and who knows i might turn out to be a great surgeon one day. Setting your goals does not have to be choosing your future job or picking a major in college, setting your goals is knowing that no matter what happens you’ll make one hell of an effort to get what you deserve and for your hard work to pay off. You might want to be a doctor one day and a lawyer the other but that doesn’t make u naive it makes you a person who seeks a bigger goal every day, someone who is determined to get more and more successful but when the right time comes and you have to choose make sure you choose something that you’d love to do for the rest of your life because as long as you love what you do you’ll always do it the right way. The first thing that you have to do is believe that you can and the rest is coming your way so be prepared to taste that pretty sweet taste of success.

Obstacles make our foot tremble but what’s a win without a fight and what’s a joy without a struggle. Even if we don’t reach what we want sometimes , just knowing that we tried our hardest gives us a warm
feeling in our hearts , a feeling that makes that fall a little easier. Whenever we are not at our best place we tend to strive for better days because we do not dare to settle for what is less than we deserve. We do our hardest to make our journey smoother because it makes our goals easier to reach and the image of our future that is drawn before us a little clearer. I strongly admire those who never give up, those who accept the struggle just to reach their target. They’re fighters who never quit, fighters who would make the impossible happen with their determination and they would stand along the hardest storm just waiting for the rainbow that follows. So are you a fighter or quitter? Do you fight for what you want or do u just settle for whatever life throws at you?
That answer is yours to make because its you who decide how to take the path of life. Every step of the way will determine where you reach in the end and how you get there determines who you are. Start now and make it an unforgettable journey, fighter!

Many people take life too seriously, they put all their effort in life’s troubles and forget that this world is just a test allah is putting us in and that its just a temporary life. Most times they don’t realize the fact that we are put into this life to prepare for the everlasting life, Will it be the happily ever after in janneh? or will it be the misery in Jahanam? This is what should keep us occupied in this life, We should put our efforts in achieving our happily ever after!
Throughout life we will always have troubles on our shoulders, bumps in the road that could bring us down but with our strong imaan we should not let it shake us, we should raise our hands up to the sky and ask allah to make it easier!
وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُواْ لِي وَلْيُؤْمِنُواْ بِي لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ(186)
Allah is here when no one is, he is there right above you waiting to give you some of his mercy and forgiveness! It is never too late to start over , open a new page and dedicate your life to allah and to the ever lasting life! So start now, start drawing that image in your mind; The image of you living your happy everlasting life surrounded by your very own paradise ; Start now and make that happen!

I have never experienced driving so for me its an easy task that only consists of steering the wheel to your direction but the truth is driving takes a lot of effort and patience. The same thing with life is that if you haven’t really experienced something you would never know how it feels like or how hard it is . People may think that what you’re going through is something easy , something you should “get over” perhaps ; They judge not realizing that life’s view is different from eye to eye.
There are many things that are left unsaid in our hearts, things words fail to describe .Those things define us, they make us who we are and uttering those things can take a lot of effort and is sometimes impossible. Yes, we use words to express ourselves but they don’t always serve us right.
People always use the phrase “Put yourself in my shoes” but the truth is you can’t , even if you try you’ll never know how it feels like until life throws you in that position.
