Living in Luxury!
Observing the lifestyles of the rich and famous is a fun pastime for many of us. We dream of how cool it would be to live in the lap of luxury as they do. Fancy cars, premium restaurants, exotic vacations, mansions . what a life they lead! But, for most people, this dream is quickly followed by the thought not for me. And often some sort of condemnation of the rich follows to soothe our wounded ego because of how we’re not able to achieve what they have.
Several serious fallacies surround the idea that what the rich and famous have cannot be achieved by most other persons. The ideas of scarcity and the moral wrongness of wealth are two of the primary culprits perpetuating the idea that a life of luxury is a pipe dream. The universe is abundantly overflowing with all that is needed for everyone it is individual thinking and feeling that directs the flow. If you believe in lack, lack is what you will get. If you believe in the infinite abundance and love of the universe, that is what you’ll get. The idea of the moral wrongness of having or acquiring great wealth and luxury is absurd in the face of a universe of unending supply.
Dare to think outside of fear-based, limited supply ideas. You can live a life of luxury. There is no wrong in achieving a comfortable and abundant life. Your life is your responsibility. Your neighbor’s life is your neighbor’s responsibility. This is what makes giving to others and gratitude for what you have so rich. Giving to others is not an obligation, it is a choice motivated by love. Gratitude for what you have and what you receive will grow what you receive. Living in luxury can be yours if you choose it. By allowing yourself to enjoy that luxury without guilt, you are simultaneously allowing others the same right. In other words, you are loving others as you love yourself.

Every born soul has an ingrained and deep-rooted talent. Unfortunately, a great ratio of people haven’t discovered the inner gifts in them and many will never in their lifetime. Human beings are far greater than just being a number holding down a spot in the world population figure. They make things happen and they change the world into a better place to live in. But this latter case won’t happen if we don’t recognize our gifts and harness the potential that lies within us.
It’s time to break our shells and come out of our isolation and give room for our skills and talents to find expression because without that, it won’t certainly manifest. Until we get hold of what life really means for every one of us, we will never enjoy it and we will skip a hoard load of opportunities that are delivered to us because life is but an overflowing river, it’s only up to us whether we stand there with a bucket or a spoon.
What we ought to do is merely search for that ability to spot and understand our gifts and embrace them by looking deep inside us. Living a fulfilling life begins with us having clarity about our purpose. Once we reach that place, we will gain back the control to put those gifts to use for indeed that will set us up for a manifest success.
Smile and the world smiles back with you.
Surely, it isn’t just about grinning and showing few teeth. It’s about your own performance within your own area of influence in society. This performance is a key link to what type of people interact with you, how many well-wishers you have and haters that keep on hating you.
As an analogy, it’s much like the scoreboard in a gymnasium that shows and indicates the performance of the teams playing the game. In other words, we make people behave the way they do because they are influenced by our own behavior. It’s that simple and plain.
If you got a pretty charming smile, you should thank the Almighty God for bestowing his grace upon you. As a matter of fact, a simple smile can heal wounds and can captivate people bewitchingly because it’s miraculous. It’s free and as a Muslim, it’s an act of worship, so that’s more motivating and meaningful.
If you are embarrassed about the stains on your teeth or got crooked teeth, I guess you still can smile with your mouth shut because if you don’t you might miss a lot of virtues and goodness. Worse than that you might make your face to face interaction and body language influence the outer world negatively due to the way you behave.
With this approach and principle, and with our excitement and enthusiasm. I think we will definitely get the right and favorable response, and not only that, but attain power to reframe and change the world.

Sorrow gives way to delight and vice versa. Just like sunset makes room for darkness and after a heavy rain there’s a rainbow. The interaction between these sequential elements is what life is all about.
Life is like a rollercoaster, when you head upwards everything seems to be bright and promising and as soon as you head down, it feels like you wish for your coffin to come embrace you and put an end to your miserable life.
When everything goes according to plan, you feel your soul is crowned with a halo but when doors slam in your face, you just sink in despondency and melancholy.
Seizing the moment is the only powerful sort of action you can do after coming to this conclusion that nothing lasts forever and that’s just a figment of your imagination. Personally speaking, I don’t even believe that the let downs I face are meant to be fierce and drastic.
My mindset is kind of on the loose because I set it to firmly believe that everything happens for a Good reason, it’s only us that decide whether to stand with a spoon or a bucket aside life’s overflowing river. To get this much more clearly, I believe that the Almighty God answers in three ways. Yes because you deserve it, No because you deserve better, or Not yet because the best is yet to come.
I know it’s easy said than done because it’s a human nature to get upset and sad after you get knocked down, but we need to learn the art of getting up after getting knocked down and forget history and aim higher.
