#JustStart your Goals
I started working on my business. For this specifically, I decided to do some analysis and look for people who can help me.
I had this goal to be financially independent, to be a successful entrepreneur, to have a success story for the motivation of others, and eventually getting a good lifestyle for my parents In Shaa Allah.
Before lockdown due to the pandemic, I was quite unaware of myself and my interests. I was totally stuck in my life and degree enrolled. But as the lockdown was imposed, I got some time to evaluate and work on myself. I realized I can be an entrepreneur. I started to research the idea of being an entrepreneur.
I thought I’ll do it after my graduation. But right after AMAL’s 1st-week sessions, I was sitting just pondering my experience with AMAL, and key takeaways from those sessions. I was constantly thinking of amal, our first principle, and realizing its importance. I started reflecting on my past that where I needed to do amal, just take initiative. I thought of all those moments, what were the circumstances of applying it or not, out of nowhere an idea hit me. And then I spent three continuous sleepless nights just imagining if amal should be applied or not.
After 3 days I realized why not just start some research whether the idea is executable or not. I thought of the consequences if I start it right now or just wait for my graduation. I after some analysis decided to do it #justnow. I discussed the idea with my mother, she said “do whatsoever you think right, I’m always with you” and then with one of my closest friends who himself became a successful entrepreneur right after his graduation this year. He motivated me and made me believe that IT’S POSSIBLE. He then helped me a lot regarding analysis and survey due to his recent experience. And finally, I took this seriously and started working on it.
It’s been quite challenging for me as first I had to convince and prepare myself, then coming up with such a weird idea in the age where nobody believes it can be done or even thought of. To whomsoever I discussed it, I had to face criticism and a hilarious attitude. But still, I didn’t lose hope and working till now to make this impossible, POSSIBLE now.
Apart from this, I felt ambitious and motivated too. Because I believe in Almighty Allah that He will always do what’s best for me. I just have to work hard consistently, and face challenges courageously, and steadfastly.
I learned how to be consistent, how to face criticism, the importance of choosing the right people to discuss your idea. I realized the truth that “challenging times unveil reality”.
