Rule #1: change

No one can go back and change a bad beginning, but anyone can start now and create a successful ending. Even if the guilt from the past still haunts, you have to move on. Life goes on and on and it waits for no one. Allah, grants us the serenity to accept things that we cannot change; courage to change the things that we can – within our hands and wisdom to know the difference.

13:11 [thinking that] he has hosts of helpers-both such as can be perceived by him and such as are hidden from him [24] -that could preserve him from whatever God may have willed. [25] Verily, God does not change men's condition unless they change their inner selves; [26]and when God wills people to suffer evil [in consequence of their own evil deeds], there is none who could avert it: for they have none who could protect them from Him.

Hey, you have the power to change! There is nothing impossible for a willing heart. People begin to question themselves; why are there lots and lots odds things in their life? They did not realize that problems are created by God to make them stronger. Well, of course people sometimes will have hard times in their life. No pain, no gain. Hence, we should do anything, by any means to overcome those problems. Do your best in anything and leave the rest to Allah.

Rule #2: ability

We have the ability to think, create and be whatever we choose to be, we have the power but time and time again we choose not to. Come on, why do we have to take the chance when the chance passes by and why when we have been given the chance we take things for granted?

Wake up people. This is not going to go away until we do something about it. Why are we even here on earth? Is it just for entertainment? Is there something more to it? Have you ever stopped to even think about it? What do you want to take out of this world?

Let me create an entertainment analogy since it is easier. Which football team wins the championship? Is it the team that works the least hard? Is it the team with the worst players? Is it the team that takes the month off? Man, we are so smart with entertainment but so stubborn with life. It's almost as if it's been planned that way.

It's just crazy. You tell people things time and time again and nobody gets it. Alas, that’s human being a.k.a homo sapiens sp.; they need to be reminded again and again. Always ask yourself to be better each day. Be grateful, act like one.

For many will look with their eyes but not see, and will listen with their ears but not hear, and with the heart not get the sense of it.

Rule #3: winner

Everybody is a winner; since our early existence from the fertilization of sperm and ovum. From millions of sperm, only one is capable of fertilizing the ovum. So, if you’re not a winner back then, you won’t be here now – common sense! Therefore, you should not feel as if you’re a loser most of the time, being left behind in studies or anything that keep you feel down. Move on, learn from the past. Just bear in mind that you’re a winner, stay positive and be optimistic about life. People get what they deserved and what they need.

Take a break, look a round your room. Let us imagine - Roof said: aim high. Fan said: be cool. Clock said: Every minute is precious. Mirror said: reflect before you act. Window said: see the world. Calendar said: be up to date. Door said: Push hard to achieve your goal. It’s a long way to go, Dr.!

Success is never ending, because it is a process. It is a process discovering and developing your potential as well as seeing the new opportunities born all around you everyday. Whatever you do today, do it better tomorrow. Tough time never last but tough people do. Choose it! Seek it! For success is finding a need and filling it! Finding a hurt and healing it! Finding a problem and solving it!

Rule #4: together

“United we stand, divided we fall”. We compliment each other. Stop labeling others and don’t look down on others, for he or she might know things that you don’t. If he or she is being left behind, don’t leave them be. For the sake of brotherhood let’s help each other in every aspect of life. You are not perfect but it’s the people around you that make you perfect. Everybody lacks here and there, but when we are united – we compliments each other. Being away from family, friends are your family.

Rule #5: courage

Nobody ever loses courage. Courage is something you never lose, because courage is something you will always choose. The truth is that courage isn’t a gift. Courage is a decision. Courage is not the absence of fear; it is the presence of calling – a dream that pull you beyond yourself. Hence, it is something you can never lose. It is something that you can always choose. So, choose it today!

We have power to change. We have the ability. We are the winner. We are together, have each other, right? Let us choose courage! Therefore, say it out loud: We’re not weak!
