PostSubject: How to strengthen your will power?   Fri 6 Feb - 19:37

Many people fail to get ahead because
they have no willpower to do what they know they should be doing. Nor
can they help themselves to avoid the things which they know will ruin
them. Many such people would like to give up smoking, to stop using
drugs, or to avoid affairs outside of marriage. Many find that gambling
or alcohol addiction is wrecking their lives. Yet these people have no
willpower to set their life on the right course. They feel helpless.
And have to deal with a nagging conscience the pricks them with what
they would have done, or should have done.

Yet there are some
strong-willed people who seem to be able to do what they know is right
and avoid what they know is wrong. Such people experience peace of mind
knowing that they are doing the right thing. Their willpower is
obviously working for them.

But how do they do it? What is the secret? The secret is that you can train your willpower.

you made a resolution to skip lunch for a month and actually stuck to
your decision. You may save your lunch money, lose a few pounds,
develop sympathy for the poor, and give your digestive system a
much-needed rest. More importantly, you will strengthen your willpower.

reason this works is that you teach yourself to avoid lunch even when
you know you could have it if you decide. Your stomach may growl, but
you won't listen. Thus you train yourself to ignore the calling of your
lower physical self and reach for the higher goals of real human
achievement. Doing the right thing even when your desires are calling
for something else.

Every year, for one month, able Muslims go
through a similar fasting exercise. They observe the fast as a
compulsory practice which God prescribed in His revealed messages,
especially in the final revealed book. One of the many benefits they
experience from fasting is its training aspect.

The willpower
they develop in that one month helps them to continue doing the right
thing and avoiding the wrong throughout the year. They find the fast
such an effective method of spiritual training and of achieving
closeness with their creator that many Muslims also keep some
additional, optional fasts on other days of the year.

They eat
an early breakfast before dawn and a late dinner after sunset. From
dawn to sunset they would have no food or drink; they would also
refrain from sexual activity. Whereas the baser selves regularly call
for these things, Muslims train themselves with the help of God to
fulfill their natural needs in the time and manner that God declared
suitable for human dignity and well being.

During the fast
Muslims also train themselves to always avoid lying, cheating,
backbiting, and all manner of false speech and immoral actions.

Who can own that solid and willing soul to go on through that "hard" test?

How few they are!

Thank you Mrs. Imane
