Unlocking Professional & Personal Growth

The way we use the Science of the Nafs is that everything is about leveling up our lives. 

It’s not about accumulating more information or knowledge; it’s about personal growth that unlocks your potential.

Many of us think that if we grow professionally, it will make us personally worthy, or that it will give us more confidence and make us feel good about our lives. 

But it doesn’t.

The personal you and the professional you are closely connected, but the personal you is the foundation. Without personal growth, professional achievements won’t lead to personal fulfilment or happiness.

For example, let’s say you’ve been struggling with anxiety, anger, or frustration and it impacts your relationships and the way you show up. 

Now, when you go to work, everything is fine and no one can tell that something’s wrong. 

But in your personal life, it’s hard. 

So if that’s the case, then you’re never going to grow to your full potential, even in your professional journey because you’re being held back by your personal journey. 

When I take my coaches through business training, they know they have to unlock themselves so that they can grow in the business. 

Only when you achieve personal growth can you unlock your professional potential.

If you’re not focused on your personal growth, then you get stuck in your life. But when you uncap yourself, your professional side will just grow. 

When the two are in sync, you’re able to enjoy your life. When your personal capacity expands, your professional capacity explodes in growth.

The other important thing is change. Many of us are resistant to change. That’s our problem.

We want a quick fix and we want the results without doing anything.

Going for the quick fixes keeps us on a treadmill of doing a million things. It keeps us busy with our long to-do list of overwhelming tasks, making us feel stressed and leading to burnout. 

This is why transformation is so important. Transformation is small, incremental changes every day.

If you’re willing to do this, it will change your life and it will impact the lives of everyone you want to help. 

The Science of the Nafs is the solution to life. It’s the Quran and Sunnah-based methodology for success. You want to learn this stuff and invest in your life. 

And then you want to go out and help other people. 

The last key thing is having the willingness to put yourself first. 

Many of us put everyone else first. The kids, the spouse, the job, your clients, and put yourself last. 

If you’re not willing to put yourself first, then you’ll come last. 

Not because that’s the decree of Allah. But because you chose that.

When you put yourself first, you’re going to be a much better parent. You’re going to nurture your kids and love being around them.

When you’re willing to help yourself first, then you’re going to show up in your job, in your profession, you’re going to lead your team with integrity, they’re going to feel as though you walk your walk, and they’re going to love to follow you.

When you’re willing to help yourself first, then you’re going to build great relationships with your people in every area of life. 

It’s all about you.

So where is your life going this year? That’s the key question. 

Make a decision and go with it.
