Lasting Change That’s in Your Hands

If you’re struggling with personal growth and the results you’re getting in life, I  want you to know, one of the greatest things that Allah (swt) teaches us throughout the Quran, or through Revelation, is that you have a power beyond the power that you’re using in your life. 

One of the prerequisites to tap into this God-given power is obviously Ilm (knowledge). But, actually obtaining the knowledge that opens the doorway to transformation comes when that knowledge leads straight your mind.

As I take my students, coaches and therapists, and clients through this journey with the Science of the Nafs, one of the fundamentals we focus on is actually getting our minds ready for an amazing life. 

Many of us find it hard to envision a life of real transformation because we’ve been stuck in our current patterns or habits for far too long to be able to envisage anything else.

It’s frustrating to invest time, effort and taking the time out to learn and educate ourselves to creating the life we want, only to feel like we’re not truly progressing or receiving the recognition we deserve.

You’re probably wondering why after all of this effort and time of working so hard to get to where you’ve got, you feel this lack of progress, you feel undervalued. 

However, I don’t want you to dwell on the why, as this will only keep you stuck in a cycle. 

What I want you to focus on is the important next step, which is actual transformation.

Transforming the state of your mind, emotions, life, outcomes, results, and everything that you want in your life.

The greatest outcome you could get, is you win in the Dunya, and you win in Akhira. 

In the Science of the Nafs Coaching school, I teach three principles that you must succeed at, in order to have a happy life.

A life where you don’t feel as though you’re hard done by.

The three important principles to master;

  1. Our connection with Allah (swt), the Divine source of mercy and love
  2. Taking ownership of your life
  3. Taking control over your mind

 Allah (swt) taught us the Dua,

رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ ‎

“Our Lord, give us in this world [that which is] good and in the Hereafter [that which is] good and protect us from the punishment of the Fire.”

So, we taught in this life guide to ask Allah to give us in the Dunya and to give it to us in the Akhira. There’s a reason why Allah taught us this eternal Dua. 

You have to nurture your mind on the connection to your Lord as this is the source of the power you have within.  

This is where the true power of change lies.

Allah (swt) gave you the ability to manage yourself and your life. 

To become empowered and create the results we want, we absolutely need to focus on that. If you nurture your mind, you flourish spiritually, psychologically, and physically.

Everything’s up for grabs if you’re willing to do the work, and it’s not a lot of work, it’s about being prepared to do the mindwork. This is what we do in the Science of the Nafs. This is empowerment. 

It’s just about making a decision. 

This isn’t about completely abandoning who you are; it’s about recognising that change is possible, and with effort and intention, you can create a life you truly love.

The Quran teaches us that change is possible, that you have the strength to shape your life, and Allah’s promise and help is true and ever present in our lives. 

You have potential, you just need to step into your life and Insha’Allah the rest, Allah (swt) will take care of it, as He (swt) always has done and as He always will do. 

It all starts with your decision to take control and make choices that lead to growth, success and the amazing life you want.
