What do you think is the single greatest predictor of worldly success?

00:00:31--> 00:00:34

It's a better predictor of success than physical strength,

00:00:36--> 00:00:42

good looks, intelligence or even a high IQ or even a person's socio economic background.

00:00:43--> 00:01:42

None of those things help predict success. The single greatest predictor of how well a person would succeed in life was actually the ability to resist temptation. It's what psychologists refer to as willpower. Willpower has many names. Self control, self mastery, self discipline, true grit, determination, resolution resolve, patient perseverance, the closest Quranic term is Saba from sabara the root which means to bind, be patient, or constant. It also means to endure patiently to steadily adhere to reason and keep away and restrain from what reason and the divine law forbids. It also means keeping yourself from showing grief and agitation it's the opposite of Jezza which means

00:01:42--> 00:02:04

showing grief and agitation and patience has been mentioned over 70 times in the Quran. And Allah says Yeah, are you Latina, Amano US Bureau was or RB two, what talkin la, la, la come to flee on.

00:02:06--> 00:02:13

Are you who believe persevere and endure and remain steadfast and fear Allah that you may be successful.

00:02:15--> 00:02:24

But how do we acquire patience, the brain gets good at what ever you do with it. If you spend a lot of time thinking it gets good at thinking.

00:02:25--> 00:02:31

If it spends a lot of time having sad thoughts, it gets good at thinking sad thoughts.

00:02:35--> 00:02:39

And if you practice patience, well, it gets good at being patient.

00:02:41--> 00:02:46

If you train your willpower muscles, your willpower gets stronger.

00:02:47--> 00:02:56

Do you have seemingly irresistible urges you don't know how to control? Are you addicted to the internet browsing unsavory websites or so absorbed in social media that you can't even seem to get things done? Do you find bargains so compelling that you find yourself stuck with stuff you never really use? As well as being out of pocket? Or do you find yourself constantly delaying important projects, studies? And cause

00:03:41--> 00:04:06

that's because you only have 24 hours in a day and there's only so much you can accomplish within that limited time. All these competing demands consume time and willpower, any addiction and bad habit you're struggling to overcome and any new habit you want to develop needs willpower. This is why you need to learn how to plan your willpower challenges and manage these different demands.
