You Can Be Your Best

The truth is that tens of thousands have fallen by the roadside; hundreds of millions have drowned into the abyss of life, some have even crashed into the ever widening ditch between the rich and the poor and are not so comfortable with their decisions. Had they had this kind of orientation, perhaps things would have turned out brilliant for them. So endeavour to torchlight this excerpt and be assured of a futuristic change. Remember,

‘only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go’  – T.S Elliot.

Many a man have come to believe that ‘success’ is but a mirage; that it comes only to those who have in one way or the other engaged in illegal religious activities. They seem to look on themselves as a cow on a farmland; which has no other than to get fed on daily basis, even though the progress of the farm can be credited to its restlessness (from cultivating to harvesting) but the gain in the outputs moves towards the farmer. Moreover, we need to understand that ‘no man is destined to be a slave forever. Everyman is born to be great, to be the best you can be if only you will put in place the right strategies.

In prologue, one major step you need to take to attain your best or succeed is to figure out one’s perfect discipline. You need to know in what aspect in which you do perfectly with little or no stress. So as not to become a ‘jack’ in the figure of speech ‘jack of all trade, master of none’. If you really want to achieve success, then you need to specialize in a particular field to be amongst the best or even the best in such aspect. Let’s take for instance the experience of two musicians. One of whom plays only the sax as an instrument and the other plays all kind of instrument (including the sax). We would notice that the former will be a better sax player than the later.

The later will be equal to several number of social network handlers whose bio reads thus;

   ‘I’m a Web Designer, Author, Business Consultant, Computer Engineer, Private Solicitor, and I also have a flair for fashion designing’.

The first impression this gives me is that the individual is confused as he isn’t sure of what profession it does, thus, he definitely can’t achieve outstanding results among of the mentioned field. Thus, I can’t contact him/her for any; rather will I give my works to a more competent personnel. Even though, there are brilliant people who end up being best in several of different aspects that they do, those are but exceptions confirming the rule.

Moreover, you need to build a perfect force in you to combat the greatest militating gladiator to human success. A gladiator with the sole aim of crippling your advancement which it does in a scintillating styles ‘laziness’ it is called. It makes you distracted as to do what you are meant to do. Be it as it may be, laziness can be curable by effectively avoiding ‘procrastination’. Do at the right time what is meant to be done. In essence, remain focused as you need to understand that ‘blessed are the hands at work; there is dignity in labour’.

In addition, an individual’s negative attitude towards achieving his Ambition (which erupts via friend influences, high level of socializing, etc.) thus warrants him to continue being an under-achiever like usual. One needs to understand that to achieve success is the function of the mind. In a situation whereby you have developed, towards your work, a weak faith; who knows, if that vision of yours is the light in which the world would be saved. Thereby making you a world embraced hero. In this sense, I’ll advice you not to underestimate your strength no matter what.

To be your best in life, your ability to persevere and to be patient is a test to victory. You excessively need these keys to open those locks of success. Do not always expect your works to come out perfect just after the first try; consistency is what you shouldn’t throw away.

‘eel on the try till you carve out the best. Imagine if Muhammad(SAW); Isaac Newton, Abraham Lincoln, Graham Bell, Lord Robinson and many more of other great minds, had lost courage and hope just at their first try, would they have being so great, even after death? Even the word

‘Impossible’ says ‘I’m possible’.

In addition endeavour to search for knowledge no matter how stressful it might take you. Just as the holy Prophet Muhammad has compelled us to do even if it is as far as China. Knowledge is a phenomenon that has no specific location; you only find it when you restless.

Above all, ‘you are nothing but pencil in the hands of the creator’. He, in His infinite power has the ability to swing you in any direction he wishes, therefore, to be that successful visionary; you need that divine touch on your work. Be very close to God, the Almighty as He alone knows best. Vast, Prayer is the master key for anyone who wishes to remain standing and even fly. Allahu Akbar!

With these mind-catching excerpts, I believe you can attain that height. With faith YOU CAN BE YOUR BEST!
