How frustration boosted my desire to succeed

By Afeda Ibrahim


All the time we are bombarded with various and even contradictory kind of situations that affect us and reshape us from the inside. So it’s no surprise that we become perplexed and confused feeling ourselves at the brink of failure.

I am no exception to this as I underwent all such contradictory feeling as how I can be myself and my life flourished again. Here’s what I did and how it impacted my whole life.

Decided I am on the wrong path. This does not necessarily suggest that what I am doing is bad in itself, but would notify me that what I am doing is not suitable for my abilities and my skills that whatever I do, it would lead me nowhere. It was not only about the tools that I use but about the vision itself.

What my childhood memory inspired me of. We all have such vivid dreams that were inspiring enough that tell us more about our future and what we love to do and even how to do it.What I love long before my childhood matters and even helped in my perplexing moments that I could recall my full potential gifts to embrace and revive them again as I am standing on the crossroad!

Keeping myself away from negative atmosphere. Negative circles contaminate our inner peace and cause us to doubt our trust to create the fabulous life that we deserve. I stepped away from negative people as much as possible. Also situations that may stir me up and cause me to get upset without any potential benefit, I  excluded from my list as well.

Suspending social network for a while. This step in particular benefited me far than I expected. As I took a bold decision to permanently deactivate my Facebook account, and quit from Instagram for months. All is fine now as I came back with new thoughts and spirit as how to make it an integral part of my still-to-come life of clear vision and aspirations.

Reading as a way to rediscover yourself. Of course reading is an indispensable part of our life that would keep both our mind and soul active and vibrant. It would give us a sense of fulfillment to grow our minds and wander and to our soul to re-experience emotion in a new perspective. Reading would unite your shattered being into a whole entity that we all need as human beings.

Meditation thrived my soul. We all have been through tough moments that we lost our calmness and ability to generate ideas and enjoy our present moment. As millions of people seek meditation to relax  get in touch with their deepest soul to reconnect and create more integration and harmony. This was a great experience to me, that enabled me  not only to overcome whatever obstacles I encountered, but also helped me a lot to revive my soul to its very beautiful nature.

Attending courses and workshops. Keeping my self in contact with ongoing dynamic world guaranteed me a good deal of knowledge and interaction. This gave me the aid I needed to recreate my vision and explore different thoughts with  all its potentiality to become true. I learned how to be a totally different being relieved from my old thoughts and views. And this has may to do with the person I am today.
