This is my first writing here at Medium and I would like to wrote about the relations between purpose, believe, action, passion, manifestation and happiness in our life.
This writing is inspired based from my personal experience and reading on the Holy Al-Qur’an and many books related to it. Some books that inspired this writing is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, Awaking The Giant Within by Anthony Robbins, The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel etc.
Many people struggling with their lives trying to find the path for their life and what is their purpose in this small world. It is a holy grail of question for my self to find out the answer of the WHY and after all this time, I have manage to open a lil’ bit answer to this question.
Some people aligned their WHY or purpose with the religion or faith that they took in their life. For Christians believer, they will cite and refer to what the holy bibble advised. For Islam or Moslem, they will cite and refer to what the Qur’an said and advised in it. This also happens to any religious believers such as Hindu, Buddhist etc. How is Atheist relate their life purpose? They will mostly align their purpose with their primary mission in this world which usually never related with the after life and they just do what they are best to be a part of the world. Despite the relation within one’s believe or religion, it is always curious for everyone to find their true mission or purpose in this world.
So what is truly our life purpose on this world? As a Moslem, I related the purpose of a person life in this world according to what Islam is teaching.
So what does the Creator, Allah, tell us about our purpose in life? Allah states in the Quran that He created man to be His Khalefah, His trustee on earth (Quran 2:30). Mankind’s basic trust, our responsibility, is to believe in and worship Allah: “And I did not create the Jinn and mankind except to worship Me…” (Qur’an, 51:56–58).
Very simple! The purpose for man’s creation is to worship the Creator. The essence of Allah’s message through all of the prophets also was: O mankind, worship Allah, you have no deity other than Him. (Qur’an, 7:59,65,73,85; Also 11:50,61,84; and 23:23,32). Allah further states that He made this life in order to test man so that every person may be recompensed after death for what he has earned: [He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed – and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving. (Qur’an, 67:2).
Besides the Qur’an, the prophet Mohammad have also said that the best person or people in this world is those who can be of value to other or bring most benefit to the rest of mankind. This is what motivate me towards being an entrepreneur. To become a person of value and can help many other people in this world, the best one is to become an enterpreneur. This has made me clear and understand what on earth am I doing here? Yes, the answer is to become a man which has value and can be of help to many other people around me.
After I have known my purpose, I will put strong faith and believe that the purpose of my life is correct and it is meaningful that I did not being sent here in this world without a purpose or just exist. Many people life and only exist. They do not find out their true purpose in life and just go with the flow. Well you know what? Only dead fish go with the flow!
The believe will create a mindset in our subconcious level that this is our mission in life and we must find a way to accomplished it. It does not have to do anything with heaven or hell. Once we know this purpose, we will put 100% believe into it and to pursue it within our life.
After we have find our purpose and put the believe to it, we shall took action to achieve our purpose. But this is not just reguler action, I am refering to massive action! Massive action that you took in order to achieve your target or your purpose. Action is one of the main ingridient to achieve anything that you want in this life. Without any action, there will never be any reaction. It is an universal law.
Passion will comes when we took massive action to accelerate the manifestation process. Without passion, the action process will felt like a plain bread without any taste when we eat those bread. Some people questioning, which should I need to look for firstly? Is it my purpose? Or is it my passion? To me, it is clearly that purpose will always be the first thing needs to be find out in our life. Either way, it is never easy to find the answer to both of the question.
Some people have also manage to find their passion firstly and then correlate it to their life purpose later. This is fine. Either way, whatever path that you all can manage to open the real purpose of your life, it is OK!
The manifestation process will come after we have known our purpose, put 100% believe, took massive action, and do the work with full passion. The buffer time of when we will achieve our manifestation will heavily depends on how big is your dream or purpose. For example, if your purpose in life is to be a person of value by become enterpreneur that can accomodate 10 people working in your company, that manifestation probably took faster than people who had vision or purpose to serve 100.000 people working within his enterprise. The bigger the dream or vision, the harder the work and action required to achieve it. The less you took action and add passion in your work, the more time required to achieve the manifestation or goals. It is all depends heavily on the previous 4 points: purpose | believe | action | passion.
Once we manage to achieve our manifestation, we will feel trully happy and this part of your life is called happiness…
