GaryVee takes on HAPPINESS

Aku melihat

Aku melihat hidup orang lain begitu nikmat,
Rupanya dia menutup kekurangannya tanpa perlu berkeluh kesah.

Aku melihat hidup teman-temanku tak ada duka dan kepedihan,
Rupanya dia pandai menutup dukanya dengan bersyukur dan redha.

Aku melihat hidup saudaraku tenang tanpa ujian,
Rupanya dia begitu menikmati badai hujan dlm kehidupannya.

Aku melihat hidup sahabatku begitu sempurna,
Rupanya dia berbahagia dengan apa yang dia ada.

Aku melihat hidup jiran tetanggaku sangat beruntung,
Ternyata dia selalu tunduk pada Allah untuk bergantung.

Setiap hari aku belajar memahami dan mengamati setiap hidup orang yang aku temui..
Ternyata aku yang kurang mensyukuri nikmat Allah..
Bahawa di satu sudut dunia lain masih ada yang belum beruntung memiliki apa yang aku ada saat ini.

Dan satu hal yang aku ketahui, bahawa Allah tak pernah mengurangkan ketetapan-Nya.
Hanya akulah yang masih saja mengkufuri nikmat suratan takdir Ilahi.

Maka aku merasa tidak perlu iri hati dengan rezeki orang lain.

Mungkin aku tak tahu dimana rezekiku. Tapi rezekiku tahu dimana diriku berada.

Dari lautan biru, bumi dan gunung, Allah telah memerintahkannya menuju kepadaku.

Allah menjamin rezekiku, sejak 9 bulan 10 hari aku dalam kandungan ibuku.

Amatlah keliru bila bertawakkal rezeki dimaknai dari hasil bekerja.
Kerana bekerja adalah ibadah, sedang rezeki itu urusan-Nya..

Melalaikan kebenaran dan gelisah dengan apa yang dijamin-Nya, adalah kekeliruan berganda..

Manusia membanting tulang, demi angka simpanan gaji, yang mungkin esok akan ditinggal mati.

Mereka lupa bahawa hakikat rezeki bukan apa yang tertulis dalam angka, tapi apa yang telah dinikmatinya.

Rezeki tak selalu terletak pada pekerjaan kita, Allah menaruh sekehendak-Nya.

Siti Hajar berulang alik dari Safa ke Marwah, tapi air Zam-zam muncul dari kaki anaknya, Ismail.

Ikhtiar itu perbuatan. Rezeki itu kejutan.
Dan yang tidak boleh dilupakan, setiap hakikat rezeki akan ditanya kelak, “Dari mana dan digunakan untuk apa”

Kerana rezeki hanyalah “hak pakai”, bukan “hak milik”…

Halalnya dihisab dan haramnya diazab.
Maka, aku tidak boleh merasa iri pada rezeki orang lain.

JUJUR Lah Berkata2
HAYATI Lah bila Membaca
IKHLAS Lah bila Menerima.

SAYANGKAN SEMUA.

[10:51, 3/27/2019] +60 19-985 0920: Semalam, saya pergi jumpa kawan lama. Beliau ada banyak bisnes tak popular. Contohnya beli hartanah dan sewakan di sana sini. Facebook beliau pun berhabuk tak ada update.

Saya tanya dia 2-3 soalan tentang murahnya rezeki dia. Kerja tak sampai 10 tahun, namun selepas berhenti, terus buat bisnes, kencang bukan main.

Dia beritahu saya beberapa benda sahaja yang dia buat.

  1. Setiap minggu (setiap hari jumaat) dia akan transfer / bank in duit ke isteri dia sebagai hadiah. Buatlah belanja atau nak simpan. Apa-apalah.

Masa kerja gaji RM1,600 dulu. Dia hanya boleh beri RM70 sahaja seminggu.

  1. Dia juga buat benda yang sama untuk emak ayah dia dengan jumlah duit yang sama (waktu itu).

Dia pegang pada pesanan gurunya, hadiah kepada yang tersayang dan terdekat ini akan memurahkan rezekinya sendiri.

  1. Sentiasa beli lebih untuk agihkan kepada orang lain. Asal dia beli nasi untuk sarapan di pejabat, dia akan beli 2-3 lebih. Letak di pantry dan tulis ‘siapa cepat dia dapat’. Kadang-kadang beli kuih.
  2. Masuk surau, masjid, mesti solat dua rakaat. Mesti. Jika nak ke tandas sekalipun, ambil wuduk, dan pergi solat sekejap. Biasanya itu adalah jemputan Tuhan. Waima masa nak ke tandas, kebetulan terjumpa surau / masjid.

Dan kemudian, letaklah duit di tabung.

  1. Setiap bulan, beliau beli 2 naskhah buku dan poskan ke sekolah-sekolah yang beliau cari alamat di sosial media. Belasah sahaja hantar atas nama perpustakaan.
  2. Setiap kali keluar makan dengan keluarga dan kawan-kawan, dia kata dia akan berusaha pergi bayar. Melainkan masa itu memang tak berduit.
  3. Tak boleh berkira. Awal bisnes, jika job yang dapat itu semurah RM50, ambil. Pelajaran lagi besar nilainya dari duit. Dulu, RM50, sekarang dah naik berpuluh kali ganda.
  4. Baik sangka dengan Tuhan. Sekiranya ada sahaja ujian yang melibatkan habisnya wang. Ingat balik, adakah bulan / minggu / hari tersebut ada yang termiss beri hadiah atau sedekah.
  5. Meminta-minta dengan Tuhan. Ini wajib. Mintalah setiap hari. Tak boleh jemu, tak boleh biar, tak boleh malas. Minta minta minta. M

Hari ini, beliau ada 4 buah kedai 3 tingkat yang disewa. Setiap satunya dapat dalam RM16,000/bulan.

Kemudian ada beberapa rumah juga dijadikan sewaan.

Nak kata beliau kaya raya, tidak juga. Masih ada hutang bangunan yang belum selesai. Namun, hutang peribadi dengan bank semua dah tak ada.

Ada lagilah bisnes beliau yang nampak biasa-biasa dan tidak popular.

Hari ini, pagi-pagi hantar anak sekolah, kemudian pergi minum dengan orang rumah. Cuti-cuti balik kampung tengok keluarga.

Rasa cemburu pun ada. Pesan beliau kepada saya:

“Asal namanya kebaikan, buat. Walau hanya ada RM10 dalan poket, entah-entah RM5 adalah untuk beli kuih / makanan kepada kawan di pejabat. Mana kita tahu dia tak makan kerana tak ada duit, dan datang kerja setiap hari hanya minum air kosong.

Aku pernah rasa semua itu. Jadi aku buat semula kepada orang lain. Dan hari ini, Allah balas satu demi satu dengan cukup tersusun dan bergaya. Alhamdulillah.”

(Blogging) Blogging is about more than money

investing in yourself, the key to happiness and fulfillment

It’s More Than Money

Investing in something bigger than yourself can bring happiness and fulfillment, just as improving other people’s lives can imbue your life and business with purpose and meaning. You can adapt these ideas for giving through your business to suit any budget:

  • Create a “giving budget,” and choose organizations to support.
  • Donate a percentage of your profits. The founder of Country Gourmet, a goodie-basket firm, gives 10% to 20% of her income to charities and organizations that help orphans.
  • Treat a single mom or couple to a night out by paying for a babysitter.
  • Express gratitude.
  • Buy grocery cards, and donate them to families in need.
  • Assemble bags of toiletries, and donate them to a local hospital.
  • Purchase items for resale from entrepreneurs in developing countries.
  • Volunteer at your place of worship or a local charitable organization.
  • Donate your skills, such as photography or graphic design, to help a worthy cause.

Satisfaction at work is by far the #1 thing that makes men happy,

​A new study of 5,000 American men found that the #1 factor that makes men happy is being satisfied at work – ranking far above health and income.

The study was sponsored by the men’s grooming company, Harry’s, in partnership with Dr. John Barry of University College London, with the aim of identifying the “values and priorities” of American men, as well as the contributors to their emotional, physical and mental health, and general wellbeing – in short, their happiness. The men ranged from 18-95 and lived all over the country.

The values American men most desire, the study says in its introduction, are those of “everyday heroes: “fathers, father figures, respectful co-workers, mentors. There are hardworking, loving, friendly men with a conscience … ” These gentle, Christ-like values, combined with the existence of a conscience, it is explained, is “great news for the men, women, and children in America.”

But really, it’s good for jobs, and vice-versa. Onto the data.

The strongest indicator of a “positive mindset” in men is being satisfied with their work – it’s three times higher than the next-strongest indicator

The “positive mindset index” used in the study included feeling more “optimistic, happy, motivated, emotionally stable, confident, with a sense of control.” Therefore, the more fulfillment at work that men felt, the more they felt those emotions.

94% of men with the highest job satisfaction rating had normal or better levels of mental positivity compared to 49% who gave the lowest rating for job satisfaction.

After work gratification, the things next-strongest indicators of a positive mindset were:

  • their health
  • income
  • age – men get happier as they get older
  • being married
  • sports and leisure

The top event that made this group of men satisfied at work wasn’t income – it was making a difference: Engagement matters.

Give Up Our Fears

In order for us to experience joy and embrace our life, we need to discard fear.

We have a limited amount of time to live. Just before we die, we will realize what we really value. We will recognize that only love matters and fear has no substance.

But we don’t need to wait for death to gain this insight. Because everyday, we can leave behind yesterday’s fantasies and create a more vibrant life. 

We can abandon the things we feared and fill our life with affection and happiness. We can give up what no longer benefits us and reaffirm our ability to love.

We should strive to see the world as a child does. Examine the world with curiosity and affection. 

We will find that fear exists only in the future or in the past.

Stay in the present.

Legendary musician John Lennon said that life has two “basic motivating forces, fear and love.”

All other feelings are subcategories of these two emotions that is love and fear. With love, we’ll experience happiness, delight, satisfaction and peace. While with fear, we’ll fear anxious, sad, depressed and tired.

However, these two emotions, love and fear can’t coexist.

We need to choose which one to discard.

p.s. Choose love over fear.

Give Up Our Past

Learn to let go.

The moment we conclude that we’ve had enough pain and suffering, we can begin working toward a more fulfilling and fruitful life.

Learn to let go.

Commit to forgiving what lies behind you and appreciating what lies ahead. Our adventure won’t end until we dies. We can work toward great happiness if we make a promise to ourselves to stop fixating on the past. Instead, do our best to make the most of the present.

“STOP FIXATING ON THE PAST”

If we push to make life to turn out exactly we wish, we are creating the potential for unhappiness.

We need to learn to think in ways that enliven us and don’t bring us down. If our life were painful in the past, use our energy to try to heal ourselves.

Try to accept what happened and what we’ve confront in the present. Because only with acceptance can we create a new and hopeful tomorrow (future).

People think that the moment we choose to forgive someone who harmed us, the person gains from our generosity.

However, in actual practice, the person who gets the most out of forgiveness is the forgiver. Forgiveness allows us to achieve peace and tranquility.

Don’t concentrate only on what went wrong. But rather seek what we can learn from our experiences.

Look for the positive instead of the negative. Feel gratitude toward those who treated us shabbily. They have shown us how not to act.

When we start acknowledging life without reservation, life in turn will accept us. 

Let’s look at one part of this beautiful verse

“. . . and let them pardon and overlook. Would you not like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [Quran 24:22]
