From Inner Resistance to Exponential Growth

In this episode, we explore this and I dive into how to start the process of change. 

I’m the sort of person that throws myself deep into whatever I’m doing. And my thinking is that if I’m in it, then I’ve got to swim.

So picture me at the pool, learning to swim, receiving all the instructions from the swim coach, and then I thought I was smart, so I jump into the deep end, realise that my feet aren’t touching the ground and of course, panic sets in. 

But survival mode kicks in automatically and you know you have to use your skills and make it work. Until someone notices and pulls you out. 

This experience taught me a huge lesson. 

We’ve all been a bit too daring at times and it’s our desire for growth and success and wanting to be excited about life. 

You want to be accomplished, have the most amazing relationships, you want to be happy and content. 

We want to experience new things and it’s exciting at the beginning but it gets to a point where it’s the same old thing over and over and the excitement wears off. 

Before you know it, there’s a feeling of being constrained by your circumstances, your business, your relationship, your career. It’s like you get stuck in stagnation and the pain that comes along with it. 

You actually forget about the beauty of life. 

But there’s a solution for this. You have to step out of the stagnant state and into a future that you really want to create.

Allah(swt) tells us repeatedly about the Akhirah, Jannah, Firdaus, and the beautiful state. And when we focus on it, we become enriched with emotions that we call contentment or excitement or drive.

You feel a different energy because you’re in a different state. Next thing, your behaviour is different and you start taking different actions. 

Even though life can get a little out of your depth sometimes, you’re always safe and the safety is your connection to Allah. 

When you step out into the discomfort of something new, you start to grow. Your life just grows and what makes it happen is the Sabrun Jameel; beautiful patience that you develop.  

You learn to keep going and not give up on yourself. You get used to that discomfort.

We weren’t created to stay stagnant or be stuck in pain. You were created to be a winner. Allah (swt), your Creator, created you to be the best. 

All you have to do is show up and be there for yourself. 

Every year I take myself and my students through a different phase of up levelling in life. We do it through the Science of the Nafs. 

“Like it or Lump it,” is not in our Framework. It’s not the language we speak. 

I’ve been loving my life, I’ve been loving this experience, because I can see myself growing. And I know that Allah (swt) has always got me. 

This is the foundation of life and every year I take my students through this journey. 

Come and join us if you want to grow and master your future. Don’t just sit there waiting for it.

It’s not going to just come to you.

You have to take the steps towards it.
