filarmonica Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Shafi Lumbee or even will serie, or Humberto Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala Lee was said was sent him to sleep on cathedral cathedra.

00:00:15--> 00:00:15

From Abbado.

00:00:18--> 00:00:19

My brothers and sisters,

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

winning

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

is about staying in the race.

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

It's not about running the fastest. It's about staying in the race.

00:00:33--> 00:00:35

People will ask you what do you want to be.

00:00:37--> 00:00:41

So I want to say to you to be, you must do

00:00:42--> 00:00:44

to do, you don't have to be.

00:00:46--> 00:00:49

But unless you do, you will never be.

00:00:50--> 00:00:52

To be you must do.

00:00:53--> 00:00:55

To do you don't have to be.

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

And unless you do, you will never be

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

people are not equal.

00:01:04--> 00:01:07

Not in his life, not before Allah.

00:01:08--> 00:01:13

Our job is to become winners, and raise winners.

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

Losing is the default. That's called the law of entropy.

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

Everything goes downhill, unless you stop it.

00:01:26--> 00:01:34

The garden untended grows weeds not roses. A house left unattended, doesn't clean itself.

00:01:35--> 00:01:43

A car not maintained by exam, a body not exercised, loses muscle and strength, not the other way around.

00:01:45--> 00:01:50

So you must decide what you want from life and then go and get it.

00:01:51--> 00:01:56

The only thing that comes just by waiting is depth.

00:01:57--> 00:02:05

Everything else needs backbreaking effort, because results are directly proportionate to effort.

00:02:07--> 00:02:17

My favorite coach is Vince Lombardi of the Green Bay Packers. He won five NFL championships including Super Bowls one and two.

00:02:19--> 00:02:29

He has a lot of very wise Quotes and Sayings. He said defeat is worse than death because you have to live with defeat.

00:02:30--> 00:02:46

Winning is not a sometime thing. It is an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while you don't do things right once in a while you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

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

The quality of a person's life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.

00:02:58--> 00:03:06

In 2021, Georgia Tech strength coach Louis Carolla asked his football team a question

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

are you willing to sprint? Are you willing to sprint when the distance is unknown?

00:03:16--> 00:03:18

Are you willing to sprint when the finish line is not in sight?

00:03:21--> 00:03:25

Now that can happen only if you have a deep belief in yourself and your goal.

00:03:27--> 00:03:34

One without the other belief in yourself but not in the goal or belief in the goal not in the self won't work. You need both.

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

If you look at Osama versus a seller, you have examples of people who sprinted when the

00:03:41--> 00:03:48

finish line was not in sight. All the Sava who died before Fatah Monica, then we this list.

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

People who give their full commitment, though the finish line was not inside winning was not sure.

00:04:00--> 00:04:33

Because the truth is that winning is not loyal to you. Winning doesn't care about you winning doesn't care how sore you are or how hard you work. Winning doesn't care how much sleep you get. You will win if you do what it takes to win. It is as simple as that. Just like you get to buy the thing you can pay for you want something very badly. You cannot have it unless you can pay for it. No matter how badly you want it. Your sob story is deeply uninteresting and totally irrelevant to winning or buying.

00:04:34--> 00:04:40

The first thing therefore is to learn to listen to some hard talk without flinching.

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

People do this. Somebody tells you something which can change your life decision on your tone is too hard.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

You speak too harshly, speak softly, who can speak softly I will tell you the most beautiful person on the face of the earth. You are absolutely

00:05:00--> 00:05:14

When you did not do anything, Allah subhanaw taala sent you into this world with your destiny written that you will be the greatest, the wealthiest, the most beautiful, the most influential person in the world, I tell you very easy

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

would that happen?

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

I will guarantee you that it will not happen

00:05:29--> 00:05:43

because, just like in the ring in the boxing ring or the wrestling ring, the one who wins is not the one who can hit hardest, but the one who can take that hard hit and still remain standing.

00:05:45--> 00:05:50

The same route in life resilience is not

00:05:53--> 00:05:53

about

00:05:54--> 00:06:00

how much hardship you face resilience is to stand up after every fall.

00:06:01--> 00:06:06

The most important career and life advice I can give you is to differentiate.

00:06:07--> 00:06:13

Differentiation creates brand brand inspires loyalty, loyalty enables influence.

00:06:16--> 00:06:18

So get five things right.

00:06:19--> 00:06:21

And it will be impossible to fail.

00:06:24--> 00:06:24

Number one,

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

build a reputation for reliability.

00:06:30--> 00:06:36

build a reputation for reliability that means deliver on promises. They start with punctuality.

00:06:37--> 00:06:48

Don't wait to be asked, get prepared to deliver even if nobody asked you. That is what legacy is built on. It is called trust.

00:06:49--> 00:07:00

My principle is I will not allow what is not in my control to prevent me from doing what is in my control. Number two, become a problem solver.

00:07:01--> 00:07:05

Never say I can't do it say I can't do it yet.

00:07:06--> 00:07:29

Figure out a way to do it. People love givers, the head takers and that is what leadership is all about. People look up to those who can help them to achieve their goals that will build your equity give you influence and inspire loyalty. Number three, remember, people are always asking wi I fm what's in it for me.

00:07:30--> 00:07:50

Show them show them how they will gain. People are not interested in you or your goals. They don't care. They are interested in their own goals. Show them how listening to you will help them to achieve their goals and you will have total attention.

00:07:51--> 00:08:05

Remember, this is not about deceiving people. It is about figuring out how to help them in a way that helps you number four, quality is not the only thing. Quality is everything.

00:08:06--> 00:08:11

Quality begins with making your bed as soon as you get out of it.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

Quality your bed and your car show if you are a winner or a loser

00:08:21--> 00:08:23

if your bed looks completely tussled

00:08:25--> 00:08:30

and out of order, and if your car looks like a garbage can on wheels, you are a loser.

00:08:32--> 00:08:34

You are a loser as simple as that.

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

So as soon as you get up, make your bed.

00:08:41--> 00:08:48

Then pray the huddle. Make the Agile further yourself. Then read one piece of Quran and go to the masjid for Salah.

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

Then walk out, go for a walk, go to the gym, whatever.

00:08:54--> 00:08:57

Eat one healthy meal a day not to not see one

00:08:59--> 00:09:07

general rule, eat 1/3 of what you eat today, and exercise three times what you do and you will have a long and very healthy life.

00:09:09--> 00:09:15

Five, last but not the least Manners, manners, conquer hearts,

00:09:16--> 00:09:29

old fashioned powerful manners span boundaries of culture and nationality and generation. People don't know how much you know they don't know your experience or your expertise but they can see your smile to show it.

00:09:30--> 00:09:39

Greetings sincere sincerely and warmly and first, will open doors for you and more doors for you than anything else in the world.

00:09:41--> 00:09:50

Be truthful. Don't lie, even as joke. Be generous. Be thankful. The rest will follow.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

Never chase money, Chase quality and money will follow because people remember quality. We

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

long after the price is forgotten, and that is the Gucci family slogan. Ask Allah Samantha to help us to live lives of quality lives of which leave behind a legacy of honor for us when we are gone for Salah we very early he was a member of the gamma ray
