SPIRAL OF HABITS

It’s only a reminder for myself. Oh, I’m so lazy now to continue my writing activity, that’s so bad. My lovely friend Papatia Feauxzar, the author of Between Sister,  SVP! said, “you may have writer’s block and it’s completely natural.” You’re right Sister. I’m struggling with it.

I need great motivation, I need spirit…..high spirit!! Finally, I found my spirit from a wonderful book, it’s written by Ustadz Felix Y Siauw. He wrote about “How to master your habits”.

He is a muslim convert, but his knowledge about Islam is very….very wonderful. الله has given him great iman, great brain, great manner, great family,  سبحان الله  . I, who was born as muslimah also learn many things from him, especially about “Life Spirit”. Indeed, I need it so much.

He wrote in his great book, that a habits is likes a spiral.

I have a dream. I want to be a professional English writer. I want to share a little of my knowledge about Islam to another all over the world. I wish. إن شاء الله.

I soon realized, I have to LEARN English more…and more. Learn it from books, videos, websites, online English teachers and native speakers. For me, never old to learn. That I know myself I’m an old lady, he…he. Then, COMMIT to my schedules, and then PRACTICE  them (all part of English skill) a lot. Knowledge is a treasure, but practice is the key to it. Next, I also need REPETITION . Yes, I must repeat these activities, again…again…and again. (always three times). I hope I will get my HABITS. إن شاء الله

Now, let’s see a beautiful words from Imam Syafi’i. He said;

أَخِي لَنْ تَنَا لُ الْعِلْمَ الاّ بِسِتَّةٍ سَأُ نَبِّيْكَ عَنْ تَفْصِيْلِهَا بِبَيَا نٍ : ذَكَا ءٌ وَحِرْصٌ وَاجْتِهَادٌ وَدِرْهَمٌ وَصُحْبَةُ أُسْتَا ذٍ وَطُوْلُ زَمَا نٍ

O my brother! You will never get a science, unless you do these 6 requisites that I’ll explain them to you; you need a good brain, high spirit in learning, read up, invest your gold (fund) , and you need a teacher who can help you in your study, and then you’ll get your science for a long time.

الحمد لله  I’m so excited now. Yups, I have hopes. I hope I can do this pattern. إن شا ء الله

Would you like to give me spirit, my brothers and sisters?!  I’d love it.

    Always here for you, Fatma baji:)
    I like this spiral of habits, by the way. I need to follow it too. I find that I lack commitment. I can’t be consistent in any habit. That’s sad, I know :/
    Share some of your favorite parts from the book, maybe? Or… an even better idea. You could write a book review!
