    Salam Nawal,I came across your blog from Half Our Deen's FB. Congratulations on your marriage. ;)Nawal, your blog is very inspirational and somehow gives me inspiration and hope to make my life worth living, Insya Allah.If you don't mind me asking, how did you overcome those thoughts or fear of what if your goals did not work out and don't you feel overwhelmed having a lot of goals when people usually say start small? For myself, I tend to give up easily and my next question is how do you motivate yourself to keep going despite the odds? In addition, how do you have time for all these?Lol, I'm too much for asking too much right? Apologies but I would really like to know. I look forward to hearing Insya Allah.Thank you for taking the time to read this.Till then,Rawk on!Wassalam,Nur

    Assalamualaikum Nur.WOW! first and foremost Thank you so so much for reading my posts. I truly appreciate it. I'm glad that my writing inspires you. AS for your questions, I live by with the motto 'NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE AND THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER' For me, I love learning new things and be involved with what life has to offer. I'm sure different individuals have their personal goals and mission. My mission was to learn everything and be able to tell your children and grandchildren 'Oh been there done that..NEXT!' :)I identify things and areas that I want to improve and explore. Of course my top priorities are religion and relationships and the rest follows. About fear..funny thing is..I never thought of that. I JUST DO IT. too much thinking or having a 'what if' thoughts would probably hold me back a lot so for that question : You never know what's gonna happen until you actually do it so fear is not an option.About being overwhelmed : YES! I had that a lot but having a set of solid system (which I'll be sharing in my future posts) kept me sane. You just have to review your goals every single time and ask yourself \”How bad do I want this?\” At this point, faith and the power of your imagination will propel you a step further. For example, one of my goal this year is to memorize the Yaasin. Therefore I imagine myself in front of thousands of audience at a conference, reciting Yaasin, with perfect Tajweed without even looking at it. When I imagine things like that, I immediately work it out. So yes. Power of imagination motivates me.As for time, I have 24 hours a day. The same time given to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Albert Einstein, Donald Trump and etc. TIME MANAGEMENT IS CRUCIAL AND CRITICAL. I decide how many time I want to spend on goals, sleep, rest, studying, marriage and the list goes on. So having a to do list and a schedule is really important. Imagine an airport without a schedule. what would happen to all the flights? how will they be organized? things like that you know.. I'm a strong believer of HUMAN POTENTIAL. We can be stretched and expanded to a length that you won't believe how far it is. So it's all in your head whether you want to do it or not. Whether you want to be an excellent human being or just normal. I chose the former :)Pphewwwhhhhh… I hope I answered your question well though. Please do feel free and ask anytime you want. I love connecting with great people all around the world. Wish you good luck in everything ya!!c ya! and hell yeah! RAWK ON!:)

    Salam Nawal,Hey hey hey thank you for that long and honest reply. After reading it and contemplating, I realized that it's all up to me; what I want to achieve, what matters most to me and most importantly is doing something about it.My problem is doing something about it as my dreams have always been, well just dreams literally.Just would like to update that Alhamdulillah I have sort of started writing down my goals. I copied you 😉 where I used colourful post-its(like your colourful rectangles on your website where you wrote 950 goals) and numbered them and pasted on my organizer that I use weekly.Then I realised, to achieve my goals, I need to plan each out so that I have a good idea of how the process could be like, just like how you shared about ur planning for your room revamp.Slowly but surely, I hope Insya Allah I will be able to achieve my goals. Im scared but excited at the same time.I look forward to reading your posts, Insya Allah.Thank you for sharing Sista Nawal.Und du kannst auch Deustch verstehen, richtig? ;)Wassalam und bis bald,Nur
