10 Choices You Will Regret

“If only…” These two words paired together create one of the saddest phrases in the English language.

Here are ten choices that ultimately lead to this phrase of regret, and how to elude them:

1.  Wearing a mask to impress others. – If the face you always show the world is a mask, someday there will be nothing beneath it.  Because when you spend too much time concentrating on everyone else’s perception of you, or who everyone else wants you to be, you eventually forget who you really are.  So don’t fear the judgments of others; you know in your heart who you are and what’s true to you.  You don’t have to be perfect to impress and inspire people.  Let them be impressed and inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.

2. Letting someone else create your dreams for you. – The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find.  A big part of this is your decision to stay true toyour own goals and dreams.  Do you have people who disagree with you?  Good.  It means you’re standing your ground and walking your own path.  Sometimes you’ll do things considered crazy by others, but when you catch yourself excitedly losing track of time, that’s when you’ll know you’re doing the right thing.  Read The 4-Hour Workweek.

3. Keeping negative company. – Don’t let someone who has a bad attitude give it to you.  Don’t let them get to you.  They can’t pull the trigger if you don’t hand them the gun.  When you remember that keeping the company of negative people is a choice, instead of an obligation, you free yourself to keep the company of compassion instead of anger, generosity instead of greed, and patience instead of anxiety.

4. Being selfish and egotistical. – A life filled with loving deeds and good character is the best tombstone.  Those who you inspired and shared your love with will remember how you made them feel long after your time has expired.  So carve your name on hearts, not stone.  What you have done for yourself alone dies with you; what you have done for others and the world remains.

Do not run after gold while ignoring the diamonds in your pocket, you might drop them


By: Mohammed Zeyara

Humans are greedy. We always want more. We always want what we do not have. We do not appreciate what we have. We do not appreciate our blessings.

If we have rivers of gold, we will beg for seas of gold. And if we have seas of gold, we will beg for oceans of gold. And if we have oceans of gold, we will beg for oceans of diamonds.

Do not miss a precious opportunity thinking you will find better. Do not ignore that good girl because you want prettier. Do not ignore that good man because you want a stronger man. These cases lead to regret.

10 Life Lessons You Got to Know About


As we all journey through this chaotic road called life, we often learn valuable lessons along the way. I might not be the oldest man you will find in the world, but I have learnt my fair share of lessons. From positives to negatives, life’s lessons would sometimes bring a smile to my face and sometimes a crack to my heart. I have decided to browse through my life and pick out 10 of the most important lessons that I have learnt. “Why would you do this?” you might ask. Well, unlike certain realities in life that occur to certain people at certain times, these realities will occur to every person. That is why I want you to read this carefully and alter your life in a way that you cater for these realities. So let’s get right down to it…

    1. Parents and family stay, friends don’t – Now I do have quite a bit of friends. The thing is, none of my friends today were with me 10 years ago, and none of my friends 10 years ago were with me 15 years ago. The point is, you will come across many friends in your life. Some will be very good but due to our ever changing lifestyles, very few will stay. Your parents and family on the other hand, will always be with you. They were with you the day you were born, they are with you today and they will be with you the day you die.


    2. Dua can move mountains – There is no time to go into the details but I know of a man who literally took what he wanted with Dua. He sat up at night, he cried and cried until he got what he wanted. It took him about 2 years to get it, but he never gave up. There were a few people who thought it was impossible to get what he wanted. I, myself, at times doubted if it would ever happen but what many thought to be impossible, became possible with the will of Allah. I know all this because he use to confide in me and we were very close. That one incident thought me that indeed Dua can make possiblewhat people see as impossible. I know you burning right now to know what is it that he wanted so much, right? Well, he wanted to marry a certain girl. She was not interested at first and it seemed like there was no hope. Long story short, today they are happily married.


    3. Old habits are here to stay –We often have bad habits that we wish to change but we trick ourselves into believing that it will happen later in life. You might have a habit of listening to music but you keep telling yourself that you will stop listening once you get married. Or you might have a habit of missing Salaah but you tell yourself that once you complete your studies you Prayers will be in order. The reality is, you deceiving yourself my friend. It will never happen unless you start today, right now. As we go through the different stages in life, it’s the old habits that stay with us. By making a change today, you turn your bad habits into good habits thus allowing your good habits to become the old habits that will stay with you for life. This habit of telling yourself “I’ll change one day” is a powerful tool that Shaytaan uses on all of us.


    4. We can never have everything in order – I’m sure, just like me, you long for that day when everything in your life will be in order. I don’t necessarily mean being wealthy and rich (I’m still coming to that point). I’m referring to the usual “things” that we have to sort out in life. Things like taking the car for a wash, fixing your phone, getting your studies in order or closing down an old Facebook account. The thing is, it never gets done. If you finally get your phone fixed, all of a sudden your MP3 player starts giving problems. If you finally get down to closing down your old Facebook account,guess what, you receive an SMS from the bank that an old bank account is in arrears. Yes, it might not be the most important things in life but I have learnt that these are chores, it’s part of life. It never ends.
