Its really interesting
I like the quote from the video..so inspiring! MashaAllah..
Change Ur thought, then U can change Ur world
Then I think, if we can change our world or in other words, ourself-
There's no doubt we can change the world or surrounding! InshaAllah..
I guess, its all about our mindset
At least that's what I understood when watching this video..^_^
The ninja, at first, thought that the flies are the problems
He tries very hard to kill its and actually, by doing that
He lets the flies distracting him
Ok, try this
In life, problems, obstacles are not something that can be avoided
Each of U will be faced it no matter who U are or where U come from
Hey, Allah already said it in His Love Letter Compilation! Look here
E.V.E.R.Y.O.N.E will be tested by our Rabb
But, what makes the difference is the way we handle it and if we handle it improperly
The difficulty could distracting us and of course, will make our head blown up!
Back to the video
Did Mr. Ninja manage to kill the flies?
Nop! U watch the video rite?=)
The flies are keep increasing!
But later, he realized something
If he keeps killing or cutting the flies into the pieces,
It worth him nothing
The flies will keep rising, he will keep fighting and his body and time will pay for it
His body will lost a lot of energy
And his time will be wasted and he could not focus on his meditation
So, what he should do now is changing his mind setting
Don't see the flies as the annoying one
But as the beautiful petals and the sound of bugging flies is like a streaming of water
So calm and peaceful..
By doing this, he succeed to overcome the distraction
I've learnt something from this..
When facing a difficulty, there's a situation U have to face first
Whether to think positive or negative
Either to be an optimist or a pessimist
It reminds me with the story of half empty or half full glass
If U are the optimist type, U'll see the glass as the half full but
If U are the pessimist one, U'll see it as the half empty glass
So, in other words
For the positive thinkers, the difficulty is a challenge for them
Its also a test for them to rise up to the upper level
Also one way to drag them to move beyond the limit
Get out from the comfort zone
Discover the new potential that sometimes we don't even realize that we able to do that!
Don't be the pessimist one.. Which takes problems as something that can let their spirit down.. Its like tomorrow never comes or that is the end of the life..
Yes, I do know that some people have this questions in their mind
- Why i have been tested in this way? It's just so hard for me..
See! Allah will give us a test because He knows that we can overcome with it. Its like when U have been given an important task from Ur leader, what would U feel? I'm sure all of us will feel proud, feel like we are important to our leaders because they trust on U. They realize that U have the ability to perform the task better than others. The same thing happened here! When U face a challenge and U feel like want to give up, always remember that Allah knows U can face it. He knows that U can overcome with it. That is why He gives U this test especially for U.. not to the others!
- How I should face it? I'm clueless and helpless =(
Nay, seek (Allah's) help with patient perseverance and prayer: It is indeed hard, except to those who bring a lowly spirit (2:45)
This ayah mentioned about those people who only serve Allah when the good things happened to them and betray Him when a trial comes to them. Allah also said that these kind of people will lose both world and hereafter! Subhanallah.. May Allah protect us from becoming one of this people and let us be the one who will be with Allah through thick and thin.. Ameen
- Why I fail to succeed? I've put all my efforts but still, the result is not like what I want..
Again, Allah knows the best. He is Ur Creator, my Creator and our Creator.. Put Ur full faith on Him. It is not impossible that Ur wish will bring harm to U.. who knows? This is not Ur time yet. Take that failure or the challenge as a lesson straightly comes from Allah! Maybe U've done something bad for examples, U forget Him when U're so busy preparing for Ur exam.. or maybe U have hurt Ur parent's hearts or hurting others people feeling with Ur acts! Think about it for a sec...or even better, Allah might want to reward U for Ur patience and that is why He gives U all the hardships.. Come on. Think positive with Allah s.w.t. If U can think positive to other people- His own creations, why can't U think the same way to Our God? Don't forget, He is the MOST COMPASSIONATE one!..Just stick to Allah's way and U'll never stray to wrong path since He'll be there for U.. He will..
My last words here, let's change our mindset. Don't be scared about what will happen in future. How can U touch the sky if U don't fly? How can U know it's a mistake if U don't try? I have watched a TV series which one of the actors said sometimes the big mistake is when U don't give Urself a chance to know whether the choice U made is a mistake or not..Well.. I guess the point is clear there. And also, how U're going to change the world if U failed to change Ur own world due the failure to change Ur own thought?
