“The ordinary are here to fit into the world; the extraordinary are here to create their own worlds.”~ Matshona Dhliwayo


A mundane life is no man's dream. The desire to have, the desire to want is an innate instinct in us all. But it is not more that we want, it is the extraordinary that we seek.


Having many of the mediocre does not carry the value of one extraordinary thing. If you were to make the choice between having one hundred ordinary friends and having one true companion what would you choose?


The answer is clear, the one, the extraordinary is what we all seek. What is the path to the extraordinary then?


The only path to the extraordinary is to become the extraordinary. It has been said time and time again, in different ages, in different nations, and in different tongues— things of the same are attracted to each other.


For instance, if you want a truly magnificent relationship that lifts you up high in the sky and makes you feel like in a dream, be a truly magnificent person and a truly magnificent person like you will come your way.


Don't be like everyone, don't think like everyone, don't love like everyone, or you will have what everyone has. If that's what you’re after, then go for it, but if it is the extraordinary you want, you cannot be the same.


Start by identifying a quality that you love in yourself, and be sure that it is something that affects others positively too, like generosity for example.


Take this trait and ascend it to the next level. Make it something that people identify you with to the extent that they remember your trait before your name.


Remember to choose a noble characteristic, one that is not solely centered on you, and you will see that things will start happening in your life. Rare opportunities will come up your way -opportunities beyond your dreams!


Take care for now, and stay tuned for another post next week. If there is something you would like me to write about in my next post, mention it in the comment section below.


Thank you for your time!

There is a beautiful and a true story about a Scholar that began his journey late in his life. When he first started, his master told him that why don't you find another passion? This is going to be extremely difficult for you at this age.


The Scholar had an unwavering will and asked his master to teach him, so the master gave the Scholar a line to memories and repeat. The Scholar spent all his day preparing and learning the line by heart, and when the time came, he reversed the line, and everyone laughed at him.


The Scholar didn't give up and continued his studies for ten years, but he showed no significant progress, and alas he became frustrated with himself and left for the desert.


Walking in despair, the Scholar saw a boulder with a deep, deep hole in it, and as he was marveling the depth of the hole, and thinking of how it came to be, he saw a droplet of water falling into the great hole.


He thought to himself "If a tiny drop of water can carve such a deep hole into this mighty boulder, than too my modest potential can achieve my great dream."


Witnessing the persistence of the drop of water, the Scholar's will was reignited, and so he went back to his studies and dedicated himself to it like never before. And to the shock of everyone, the Scholar became one of the most renowned scholars in the Arab world.


As long as you keep doing what your are doing, eventually you will reach your goal. You will fail, time and time again, but you will come back stronger, more determined, and more prepared than you were.


Keep trying, and keep pushing forward. Your efforts will eventually yield the results that you crave.


This is it for today. Take care of yourself, and remember to never give up.

Is there something more fragile than us humans? We work so hard in life to accomplish, to achieve, to obtain and maintain, and by a multitude of causes that can never be predicted or if predicted cannot be prevented, our lives and efforts can be lost in an instant.


In every move you make, in every action you take, there has always been an invisible, merciful force that protected you from harm and misfortune.


I'm not a preacher, but I want to tell you and remind myself once again, that we are never ever alone!


We lose hope and feel desperation when we think that we are alone against life and its everlasting problems. I can tell you that we are not alone. We have a divine Creator whose mercy is unmatched and forever lasting.


No matter what kind of a problem you face, remember that the one who created you, the universe, and everything you see is with you, asking you to take His hand and lay your burden on Him.


Don't lose hope for you're never alone!
