LESSON OF THE DAY 826
And God punishes whomever God will, and God grants mercy to whomever God will; and to God you will be received. And you won't cause frustration on earth or heavens; and you have no protector and no savior besides God. [29: 21,22]
Hadith of the Day:
Allah Most High abandons the punishment due to anyone who can abandon his own anger. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Laughter always follows tears. Blessed are those who understand. Life blossoms wherever water flows. Where tears are shed divine mercy is shown. [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
There isn't a person anywhere who isn't capable of doing more than he thinks he can do.
Within each of us lies a power center, and we learn to call upon this power as we set out to design our lives according to our will. Power is a natural state of being----it is a force to which we are all entitled and to which we all have unlimited access. Your power is what propels you forward day after day, what sustains you in dark moments, what gives you the ability to do whatever you feel driven to do. It glows within you like a light, beamed outward into the world as needed.
There may be times, however, when you have difficulty seeing that light within you. You may experience "power leaks" that rob you of your ability to manifest reality. In those times you need to identify what is robbing you of your power and patch the leaks. Power leaks come in many forms: intimidation, discouragement and disappointment, setbacks, rejection, or loss, just to name a few. The best way to patch these leaks is to look back at your earlier successes as a way to remind yourself of what you are capable of. You may need to patch leaks in your power many times throughout your life, but once you groove an easy path back to the power source within you and live from within it, you will never again question the idea that what you make of your life is entirely up to you. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Nothing builds self esteem and self confidence like accomplishment. It's not what we have, but what we do is our kingdom. Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve. Every obstacle is simply a course to develop his achievement muscle. It's a strengthening of his power of accomplishment.
