    Many Ways for Blessings to Come

    Sustenance in the form of money might come from any unexpected direction. Not everything can be understood with sense-making and logic circumstances to find where it comes from. Here is an awesome sharing of thoughts from Jamil Azzaini, the inspirator of Sukses Mulia. A friend once asked, “How can I not be so busy seeking for money, but instead money itself is so busy seeking for me?” “Take two ways simultaneously, the professional path and the spiritual one.” The professional way is when we set the skill and continue to sharpen it to become experts in that field. While the spiritual path, do the activities commanded by the Almighty who…

    Sound of Silence

    The sun is surely sliding away over the horizon. The sky is getting dark going straight down to my surroundings and around. And I’m here alone in my room, away from home. Cricket choirs are singing outside, breaking the silence in the crawling night. I close my eyes just for a while, and then I get them wide opened. I try to believe what I’m getting on this time. Once I had to move out of my hometown to work, now I am having the opportunity to take my time a little loose –at least I can distinguish the difference with the circumstances I had before. I know I have…

Routine work bringing about departing in the morning and returning in the evening has left me exhausted. I can feel the blood circulation in my body goes unsmooth. All I have with this flesh is nothing but indolence. I know that the solution is exercise. Just name it jogging, that simple.

    When you find your kid crying, don’t waste your time calming him down. It would be better to distract him from crying by pointing your finger up over to flying birds or clouds in the sky. As he looks up, he’ll stop crying. Why? The nature of persons when crying is when they raise heads down. You want your kids stop playing around. Please don’t say: “All right, it’s enough. Stop playing now”. Use these words instead: “Five minutes to go to keep playing, Kids”. Remind them for more: “Two minutes to go”. And finally, make a closing: “Okay, time is up”. They will stop playing. When you get distorted…

    You Are What You Think

    What’s in our mind is what is about to happen. If we think we’ll reach a success, we will. But if we think of ourselves such a person who never makes the grade, we’re then on our way to being a loser. You are exactly what you think. Psychiatric experts overlook mind as the determinant factor in the dynamics of humans. Most of the parts of our human system, like our gestures ad mood, are controlled by our minds. The same way is applied to our feelings. With informations collected and compiled in the brain, the mind commands the ’heart’ to determine the desired circumstances. When the influence of mind…
