Everyday we see examples of what we would like to do, be or have. These examples are so close we could reach out and touch them. They drive by us on the road in their flashy vehicles. They sit next to us on the train dressed to the nines, iced down, looking ‘rich’. We take part in the projects and programs they introduce and wonder why them and not me! Ironically enough, the only person who can truthfully answer this question is you.

Why them and not you?  What are you doing or not doing that is prohibiting you from ‘becoming that person’ – the person you want to be and have the things you want to have?I can’t answer because I am not there with you during the private, non-public moments of your life. The private you is who or what makes the public you. Even if you have a family or co-habitate with others, there are still those private moments, actions and habits that combine to make you the person you are. What kind of person are you? What is done in the dark, will be brought to light – to refer to the old proverb. And, this doesn’t only apply to negative things. The things you do in private & secrecy are the elements that, combined with your public self, create your nature, habits, your actions and influence the kind of decisions you make. All of these combined ingredients working together are what make you the person you are! Having an idea of some of the elements, or determinate factors, that produce personality – or the make the person, so to speak, – you can now take this information and use it to ‘become the kind of person you want to be’.

My suggested first step. Spend a little time dreaming about the ideal you. Next step, make it happen, inshaa ALLAH (God willing).

  1. As-Salaamu ‘alaykoum, Ukhti, wonderful post, Allahumma baarik laki! It is indeed true that we can see examples of people who are similar to who we’d like to become and it is indeed inspiring and motivating, but what is even better is when you actually become that person yourself and you inspire and motivate others to be great people too!


    1. Wa Alaiki as Salaam Sis. Khadijah,

      Thank you for the feedback. I whole-heartedly agree with your insights. We are here to first develop ourselves fully in the abilities ALLAH has blessed us with and then insight inspiration for those around us to do the same by ALLAH’s grace!
