Stopping Fear and Anxiety – Creating Certainty in Life
If you’re one of those people you’ll be relieved to know that it’s within your control to change.
There’s a powerful method and I take students in the Nafs Coaching School through it.
Our minds are very powerful. And if we focus on scary outcomes, then those things could very well happen.
That’s why the first step to creating an amazing future is learning to change the direction of our minds and emotions.
Right from the beginning, you have to decide that your future will be amazing. You’re going to create it with the help of Allah (swt).
And of course, within the Institute, we’re going to help you along the journey Insha’Allah.
The Science of the Nafs is the knowledge and framework of how you and every other person work. We understand this through Divine Revelation; the Quran and the Sunnah.
By aligning our lives with these principles, it will give you the best possible outcomes.
There’s something I do daily and deliberately. I don’t let my mind go off on a tangent and follow anything that comes to it.
To be honest, and you already know this, you’re going to be bombarded with information from your daily life, some neutral but also some negative stuff.
Sometimes even the neutral becomes negative because of our thoughts and opinions on it.
So for this to work, you have to decide that you’ll stop allowing negativity to influence your life. Whatever it may be.
Maybe it’s fear, anxiety, frustration, resentment, or anger.
But you have to decide daily, to let it go. It’s simply reinforcing the direction of your mind. This decision will shape your future.
When we talk about the future, many of my students say stuff like,
“I’m just being realistic,” or, “I’m just trying to cover all the angles to make sure.”
It’s not realistic at all because only Allah(swt) knows the future. We don’t know the future.
The common tendency to focus on this impending doom is not what the Deen teaches us. Islam teaches us to sow the seeds of goodness even in challenging times.
I don’t think about my future with this impending doom, because I know that Allah(swt) is Ar Rahman; Ar Raheem, He is the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.
So there’s no need to live life like it’s already over.
My future plans are all positive. It creates an inevitable action that comes out of my behaviour and the way I show up in my day.
This is a simple formula of cause and effect.
Think about it like this. Your fear creates a reaction, the reaction is your behaviour and whatever you do is going to create the results in your life.
To change it, you have to change the fear. Change the cause.
Change what you think right at the beginning of the road, and that will change how you feel and react.
