Creating Momentum in Your Life!

Wow! Just finish sharing some thoughts on Momentum.

This is something we shared with our son's school. It is the importance of maintaining and creating momentum in life to achieve success.

It's a huge word; MOMENTUM.

Anyways just saw on the news apparently there will be a Royal Belum Festival happening soon. Well, if you are a nature lover than you should check out our island lake resort which is near the Royal Belum National Park. You need to visit. It will be a totally different experience. You will discover new things, we guarantee it. Just visit www.BelumEcoResort.com now!

Anyways, back to my sharing for today. MOMENTUM.

Today we want to share with you a great word; MOMENTUM!

We do remember a law in physics defines momentum as; objects at rest tend to stay at rest. Objects in motion tend to stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force.

This statement holds true for everything we do in life especially in working towards becoming successful. You need to create momentum in what you are doing. Be it in your studies, your work, your health, your religion, in short everything you do needs to be built towards having momentum.

Why is momentum important?

When looking at our problems it can seem quite impossible to even budge them, much less make a significant impact. Often momentum matters more than strength, and persistence more than initial impact.

We came across this amazing experiment that was conducted to illustrate the power of momentum!

A teacher hung a bowling ball from the ceiling and told disbelieving students that he'd be able to make the ball swing with a ping pong ball. The bowling ball weighs 8 pounds, the ping pong ball roughly 0.006 pounds - a weight difference of over 1,333 times. Just as the laws of physics dictate that everything has momentum, everything that we do builds momentum. The question is whether or not the decisions that we make build momentum in the directions that we wish to go.

So a couch potato stays a couch potato. While others go out, take action every day and will achieve more. This makes sense. What separates the achievers from the couch potato? MOMENTUM.

It’s something every successful person or business possesses. Momentum is a powerful force that can lead you to all your goals.

The truth is, it’s going to take some time. No matter what you do, you will need time to build momentum. Here are 3 tips on how you can create momentum in what you do.

1.   Thinking consistency. Slow and steady wins the race. The turtle always beats the hare. Think about anything you’ve had success with. We can guarantee that you did it consistently over a period of time.  A little every day instead of trying to do too much too soon.

2.   Develop a routine for daily habits. Decide what new habits or behaviours correlate with whatever you want to have success in.

For example you want to become healthier. You start by changing your meals. Start by taking healthy breakfast. It’s not going too easy at first but once you start and you make it a routine, it will become a habit for you. Your mind, than your body will adjust and you will eventually create momentum. Soon it will be a part of you and you will be amazed how easy it is for you. It will all seem amazing and magical to you later on. That’s what momentum can do for your life!

The same can also be said about other things which are as simple as waking up early in the morning to perform our Subuh prayers. At first it’s going to be a challenge as you will need to fight with yourself to conquer the urge to go back to sleep. But as you build on the momentum it becomes easier with each new day. This can be seen from Ramadan. The first few days might be challenging but as we move towards the end of Ramadan, you will develop a momentum for fasting and you will be able to increase your prayers. That’s why it is so important to carry the momentum from Ramadan into the month of Syawal. But here in Malaysia we tend to celebrate Syawal for one whole month and thus we lose our momentum!

3.   Know why you’re doing it. Having superficial reasons will derail you so fast. That’s why New Year’s resolutions do not last! Think back to all the New Year resolution that you had, how many of them are still on your list? You fail more often than not. The reason being is that you do not have enough why behind those goals. It’s more of a feel good goal but not something that evokes your passion and commitment. It’s more of, if you get it, it’s great if not, you’re ok kind of goal.

If you have a deeper reason, you’ll keep going no matter what obstacles you face. You need to find your why for every goal that you have so that you can create momentum to achieve it.

Find what area in your life you want to have profound success. Use the tips above and find what behaviours in your life you have to change. Get momentum on your side and your life won’t be the same. We can guarantee it!!!

You do it for 30 days; YOU will see the difference.
You do it for 60 days; PEOPLE around you will see the difference.
You do it for 90 days; THE WORLD will see the difference!!!


So, come on! Let’s go and create some momentum!!!

Membina Rumah Di Syurga

Alhamdulillah semalam berpeluang mendengar tazkirah 20 minit bersama Imam dari Mekah iaitu Imam Muhammad Sharif Imrani yang bertandang ke Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar As-Siddiq, Bangsar.

Pada mulanya, ingatkan Imam tidak dapat hadir kerana sampai azan Isyak masih belum tiba. Syukur Alhamdulillah semasa solat Isyak, beliau sampai. Dapatlah kami semua melakukan solat hajat bersamanya diikuti dengan tazkirah santai selama 20 minit.

Walaupun 20 minit sahaja namun apa yang Imam kongsikan boleh terus di praktikkan. Imam bermula dengan bertanya kepada jemaah. Siapa di sini ingin kaya? Semua jawab mahu. Kemudian Imam bertanya siapa mahu jadi kaya seperti Qarun? Semua kata tak mahu :)



Imam seterusnya berkata dia ingin berikan kami beberapa amalan yang membolehkan kita membina rumah di Syurga!

1. Solat sunat 12 rakkat setiap hari iaitu solat sunat Rawatib. Pastikan kita lakukan setiap hari. Tiada kos, cuma masa dan tenaga kita sahaja. Allahuakbar! Apa yang kita perlu buat adalah:
- 2 rakaat sebelum Subuh
- 4 rakaat sebelum Zohor
- 2 rakaat selepas Zohor
- 2 rakaat selepas Maghrib &
- 2 rakaat selepas Isyak

Ada banyak hadis sahih yang menyentuh kelebihan solat-solat sunat ini. Ayuh kita usaha untuk mengamalkannya. InsyaAllah.

2. Baca surah Al-Ikhlas sebanyak 10 kali setiap kali selepas solat fardhu. Nikmat dan fadhilat surat Al-Ikhlas ini juga terlalu banyak, Malah membacanya 3 kali sudah seumpama membaca seluruh Ai-Quran!!! Allahuakbar!

3. Untuk senang apabila dijemput sakaratul maut kerana sakitnya apabila nyawa ini di tarik adalah lebih sakit dari daging yang dihiris dengan pisau yang tajam. Bayangkanlah betapa sakitnya kita apabila roh berpisah dengan badan. Untuk memudahkan kita melalui proses yang kita semua pasti akan tempuhi, Imam memberitahu solat Subuh berjemaah dan yang terbaik adalah solat Subuh berjemaah di masjid atau surau. Allahuakbar.

Ya Allah semoga kau berikan kepada kami taufik dan hidayah serta kekuatan untuk mengejar semua ganjaran dan nikmat yang kau berikan. Berilah kami kebolehan, kemahuan dan kekuatan untuk mendekatkan diri kami kepadaMu Ya Allah. Amin.

7 Secrets to Successful Goal Setting

Today we want to share with you the magic of goal setting.
Almost everybody knows that in order to be successful in life we need to know what we want and what we want to achieve. A lot of people fail because they are not sure what they want to achieve.

A simple illustration would be this. Let’s say you are driving and you do not know where you are going. You are going to end up nowhere and most likely you’ll be wasting your time money and energy driving aimlessly without a specific destination.

But, let’s say you are driving and you have a destination which is to reach home because there is a family emergency. WE can guarantee that you will reach home regardless of the obstacles in front of you. It could be a massive traffic jam or it could even be an accident or road blocks along the way but you will persevere to get home. A road closure will make you change route but you will find an alternative route. Today it is so easy with our good friend waze! J How we wish our life is that simple – calculating alternative route.

We always give an example of playing a game of soccer without any goal post. Picture a match where you have two teams playing on the field and you are one of the audiences. The teams are playing their hearts out passing and running to beat their opponent and when they want to score there’s no goal post. How long do you think he game will last? Better yet, how long will you be watching? One word to describe this would be BORING! That’s right; life without a proper and clear goal would be BORING. We need to find our purpose so that we can strive to achieve it every single day.

A goal has to be something that excites you. It should be something that you can vividly imagine when achieving it. You can almost smell it, feel it and touch it. It must seem so real to you. This will make you utterly desire for it and in the process you will enthusiastically act upon to achieve your goals or dreams. So what are your goals?

Here are 7 secrets on how to help you to achieve your goal.

1.   Identify your goal
·        Make it as clear as possible. Once you have the goal, break it down to smaller task or the things that you need to do to achieve it. Be as detailed as possible. Also provide alternative on how you can achieve the goal so that you will have options when you face challenges and obstacles.

2.   List down all road blocks and obstacles
·        What are the things that will be a challenge for you to achieve your goal? Is it time? Money? Your children? Your assignments? Your family? Your friends? Your attitude? Your discipline and etc. The list could go on and on but it would be great to know them so that you have a better understanding of what you will be facing in order to achieve your dreams.

3.   Think Solutions
·        Now that you have the list of obstacles and road blocks, it is time to put on your thinking cap. How to overcome them. Do not focus on the problems but focus on the solutions. Remember what you focus on will expand. Become bigger than the problem, you will be able to overcome the challenges.
·        For example, if your problem is money, than start thinking how you can make some money. Cultivate your mind and the way will open for you.

4.   Time Frame
·        Set a time frame to achieve your goal. It must realistic and something that you believe is within your reach. But be careful not to make it too comfortable for you otherwise you will not challenge yourself. It should be enough to get you out of your comfort zone.
·        Once you have the time frame, break it down into things that you need to on a monthly, weekly and daily basis. This will make sure you stay on track to achieve your goals.

5.   Reasons
·        For every goal that you have, make sure there is a huge why attached to it. You need a big reason behind it.
·        You need to make it emotional so that it can motivate and inspire you when are not going well for you.
·        One thing we learned is that money is a poor motivator. It has to be more than just making money.
·        One of the most powerful reasons that you can put behind your goals is love. Your love for your parents, your family, your friends and the people that matter most to you. Use them as your reasons.
·        Make it personal!

6.   Affirmations
·        You need to talk to yourself every day. Affirm your beliefs and really put yourself up because you will need the energy.
·        We always love to use the athletes at their starting blocks. If you see the camera zooming on to their faces, you will notice that the athletes are mumbling to themselves as they get ready for their race. They are talking to themselves psyching themselves up, increasing their beliefs.
·        You can do this by having daily affirmations that will help you to stay focus. You can do it!
  
7.   Visualization
·        Last but not least, you have got to see it with your mind. You have to imagine what it would be like achieving your goals.
·        See the smiling faces, hear the laughter, smell the sweet tastes of victory as you become a winner.
·        We love the way Michael Jordan, the basketball legend describes how he plays the game. People often wondered how he could make spectacular plays. What did he replied? He said that the moves were already made in his mind before he executed them. Meaning he visualized it first.
·        As they say, everything is created twice. First in the mind and the second in reality. So start picturing yourself achieving your goal. It’s fun!
