Che All right, you guys Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Assalamualaikum and welcome to our discovery webinar believers vs. Perfectionism how to chase your dream glass without procrastinating. My name is Rosie Namibian and part of the discover you team. And if you're here, because you have felt the very real pain of being stagnant and post Ramadan, you have felt that dip in your momentum, or you have felt that you're not taking action because well, it's not perfect. So what's the point or your fear of commitment, and hamdulillah you're in the right place, because you don't want to wait till things are perfect for you to take action you guys throw around the word

00:13:26--> 00:14:00

motivation a lot and I love the way Sheikh Mohammed approaches motivation. You're going to probably hear him say it today. But you know, motivation isn't something that we wait for it to finally take action so we're gonna bust all of those myths today and tackle you know, fear anxiety that maybe sometimes show up as well and might hold you back. So today is about challenging that internal voice inshallah and really questioning it, especially that idea of you know, maybe when Allah just hasn't written up for me and so that's why I'm not taking after I'm not doing this, and hamdulillah today's about building that momentum, really inshallah establishing habits and I encourage you stay till the

00:14:00--> 00:14:36

end, we've got a special bonus for all of you who are here today with us. So stay on till the end Inshallah, and you're going to hear all about that. Let me introduce you to our teacher.

He's a graduate of Medina University, and also holds a Master's in marketing. Mashallah, and like I said, he's been a pioneer in establishing a lot of the programs and things that you see in the online space. So I am so excited for you to experience Sheikh Mohammed live. So welcome. And with that shift, I'm going to hand it over to you

00:15:02--> 00:15:17

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu. salam ala Rasulillah. Allah Allah. Allah, Allah bad. Firstly, how's the sound? How's the audio and the video? was? Yeah, is it okay? Looks really good che. Alright, let's get started.

00:15:20--> 00:16:11

All right to begin, let's start off with the Hadith of the prophets of Allah you sent him in which he said that if tomorrow was the day of judgment, okay, we've been through very traumatic things. In the past two years, we've been through very traumatic things, nothing can be more traumatic than the entire universe coming to an end. Okay? The entire universe coming to the end, not just the earth, not just all human beings, the entire universe coming to if the Day of Judgment is tomorrow, and in the hands of one of you is a sapling a sapling are those little trees, you know, when they're planting trees? It's a sapling broadside a lot as Adam said, and in the hands of one of you as a

00:16:11--> 00:16:14

sapling, let him plant it.

00:16:16--> 00:17:01

Now this hadith is very interesting, very interesting Hadith, because the Day of Judgment is tomorrow. And there are many things that you could be doing. You could be going to the masjid you could drop everything make dua pray non stop, act like it's later the other night. And you know, you're praying, but the Prophet said a lot is that, um, said that you should take action, that even if technically, if you feel like, what's the point, there's no hope? What am I doing planting the sapling? I need to, you know, have more important things to be focused, the prophets of Elijah said and says no, in times of trauma, that you should be focused on, you know, put that out of your mind

00:17:01--> 00:17:23

and just focus on taking positive action moving forward. Another interesting thing I'd like to start off with is the story of Noah Helene Instagram. So know how Instagram did take action. And he says in the Quran that he called his people for 950 years.

00:17:26--> 00:18:12

950 years. And Allah subhanaw taala says, We're all here ILA no hen and no lady minimum code, 11 code and that no one else will become believers except those who have already accepted. So Allah subhanaw taala told me how this flood is coming. Allah subhanaw taala told Noah to build a boat. So this is interesting, man. And if you've heard me before, I've said this, this statement, a lot of us make draws. But we forget the part about building a boat. We forget the part about building a boat. So Allah subhanaw taala told no Allison to build a boat. And now maybe let's just throw it to your life. You're making the offer marriage, you're making the offer children, you're making the offer

00:18:12--> 00:18:47

business for economics, maybe you need to build a boat. Maybe Allah subhanaw taala needs you to actually take some action to change things up. In addition to your dog, now is dog all about just taking action. So what's the point of dua, right? It's just like, Hey, as long as I put in the effort, and I set my goals, and I review my goals every day, and I take action on them. Now what's the point of Doha? Let's look at the example between Noah Hollis and son and Noah Hallease them

00:18:49--> 00:18:59

they both took action. No, Helene Islam did take action. Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, the nurse told his son in a cup marinara, where to come

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

from and don't be from the losers.

00:19:06--> 00:19:09

And his son said No dad,

00:19:10--> 00:19:48

I will go and climb a mountain I will take action. It sounds scientific. No water never covers up mountains. But the difference we do know how to Instagram and his son is that Noah placed his trust in Allah and took action. And no son who was drowned did not place his trust in Allah. All he did was take action. So now you're here at the end of Ramadan. Okay, Ramadan has concluded we're now in show well, and inshallah well in the month of Chawan. You have come out of Ramadan. And by the way, you just

00:19:50--> 00:20:00

just for the record, I hate it. When people say stupid things like oh, in Ramadan, Muslims get fat. So

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Oh, I would like to say hey

00:20:03--> 00:20:05


00:20:09--> 00:20:21

like is that really is that what Ramadan is about? Like people just eating samosas and then just getting fat? No what happens in Ramadan is you and by the way back in the day you know

00:20:24--> 00:21:09

too long but Muslims have you noticed like eventually non Muslims start saying that what Muslims are doing is so amazing like beards oh now everybody wants to wear a beard covering oh yeah anyways so they get to this point where fasting is amazing and everybody's trying fasting even this lady she did a video I fasted for an entire day this is what happened to me and it's got like a million views on YouTube we're like a billion Muslims fast the entire day every year since the process and you make one video and you've got a million views so Muslims are benefited a lot here are three things your body actually becomes optimized in Ramadan optimize and I'll show you how

00:21:10--> 00:21:52

when you start Ramadan you think to yourself man fasting is hard I can't even fast Mondays and Thursdays didn't you come into Ramadan or like I can't even fast Mondays and Thursdays and then Ramadan comes along and now you're fasting every single day. And if somebody told you isn't that hard, you would say actually it's not that hard. Masha Allah optimize, look at your time. If somebody told you hey, you know what, let's go to the masjid every night. Let's go to the masjid every night for the entire month and spend like two hours there every day. And you're thinking to yourself I don't know do you have time to go to the message tonight for two hours and tomorrow and

00:21:52--> 00:21:53

the day after?

00:21:57--> 00:22:29

The answer's no. But in Ramadan, you did it. So your time is optimized. Now let's look at your productivity. You may have thought well I don't have time to read Can I have time to do vigor I don't have time to you know do charity and go on and this and that end in Ramadan time you did do those things. You had the time to read the Quran you had the time everything was optimized. So right now what Ramadan did and here's like actually one last proof of this if you remember at the beginning of Ramadan

00:22:30--> 00:22:52

you may have gone to a really big really big star and you felt like you needed to eat a lot of food if you felt like you needed to eat a lot of food and towards the end of Ramadan basically you just eating cereal and it's good enough correct me if I'm wrong I'd say in the comments is that correct? Yes sir. Yes please

00:22:53--> 00:22:54

correct yes.

00:22:56--> 00:23:17

He started off I need a buffet and by the way if I owned a buffet restaurant I will try to optimize my money in the first week of Ramadan because I know in Ramadan time halfway through bodies become optimized they don't want to eat buffet except sister Rihanna here who says ate a lot Alma okay good for you

00:23:20--> 00:23:48

so all this optimization your body has expanded your productivity has expanded your time has expanded you're now an optimized human being now after Ramadan everybody goes around or you'll you'll start hearing these these speeches people start saying things like you know what Ramadan is over but you can still fast Mondays and Thursdays tomorrow is over but you can still

00:23:49--> 00:24:07

pray pm a layer so unlike King nobody's fasting Mondays and Thursdays nobody's praying Korea Malaysia and and and then the third one is yeah Ramadan is over you know you can still recruit nobody's gonna read the Quran you know why you know why those things don't continue tell me why

00:24:11--> 00:24:45

numerous as we get busy okay, this is interesting. No, it's not because we get busy. Somebody else why does these things Farhad says there's no community no Baraka missing no shape on is to blame shape on somebody said lazy it's not a priority che Todd has unlocked it's the next it's the man no motivation. France from France. There's no real carrot. Okay, nobody said it. Here's what I here's what I'll tell you. The reason we don't continue

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

is because we have not established habits after Ramadan to maintain this. We have not established the habits to not do

00:25:00--> 00:25:34

I'm continue to so let me tell you this point for those of you so fad says we are weak. Somebody said che Pon got me. Somebody said, you know, like you started beating yourself up. You, my friend are a good person, sister, you are a good person, Brother, you are a good person. Okay? The reason that you feel like you're going back to old habits isn't because you're just a bad lazy person. That is not the reasoning. The reason is that habits have not been established. That's as simple as that.

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

That's something else I was going to move it to.

00:25:41--> 00:25:50

Okay, so let me let me tell you a story. Let me tell you a story on this exact topic. So I have had problems waking up for fetcher.

00:25:51--> 00:26:03

For a good 30 years three, zero how many people have problems waking up for fetcher? Raise your hands or just say me in the comments. They have a problem waking up provision.

00:26:04--> 00:26:29

I'm pretty sure that a whole bunch of you have even if you're good Muslims and you go to the masjid for Lahore and McGraw I'm pretty sure you got federal problems because the Dean has I feel like you know like there's there's you know, the harasser mother, and then to push it like who can be the stronger believer, then you got fetcher.

00:26:30--> 00:26:47

It's like the next level. It's like in Angry Birds. There's three stars and two stars. This is the third star one. So for years, I tried to make I made to ask for, you know, pray in the masjid. I tried to

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

thanks enough.

00:26:52--> 00:27:30

I tried to motivate myself by giving myself like treats. Hey, if I wake up for fetcher, all go get a treat, French vanilla, whatever. And soon, I could care less about the treats. Sometimes I'd walk for Federer. And I'm like, Yeah, Allah, what is the point of this? It's so early in the morning. It's so cold in Canada. And I'm just going praying and go back home, I could have done this at home. What's the point of this? Until I got to the point where I just said, Well, I guess I'm just a bad person. Some of you have said, yeah, it's shape on that's easier on the left, right, blame the shape one, I'm lazy because she Tom made me do it.

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

Lesson number one, don't blame anybody.

00:27:36--> 00:27:51

But I kept making God for it. And you know what happened? Something I kept pushing this pushing this. And by the way, it's not just Fudger if you've got a dog or two, that you've been trying to,

00:27:53--> 00:28:43

that you've been trying to have happen for a long time, you need to pay attention to this. Because Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Allahu Allah, your one year old man or woman had had done your one year umami, I'm forcing him that Allah will never change, this will never change the state of a people until they change but is in themselves first. Now you've been making dua for something for a long time. And there are certain doors, there are certain doors that I know that when you save them, you know that there's action to be taken. So if you're making not to run a marathon, for example, you know that there's action that you need to take. But then there are other doors that we

00:28:43--> 00:29:02

make, somehow we think that it's going to happen miraculously with no action from our part. And so I suffered with insomnia for a very long time, Pamela, actually, in the course, I'll tell you how I turned it around. But

00:29:03--> 00:29:52

I start after 30 years, 30 years of pain and if you guys have insomnia and you've been in this position with me, you know how painful it is. I just gave up on trying to wake up for Federer. Sometimes I'd wait till the morning. Sometimes I'll just you know, one hour before Federer I just knock out and fall asleep. It's so painful and so horrible, and I wish I could sleep. You know what time I went to sleep yesterday, my friends 9:30pm And you know what time I woke up, masha Allah to Allah, Allah 3:45am 3:45am. And I don't do this one day, I do it consistently. I can actually wake up at 3:45am without an alarm.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So what I'm talking about does make a difference. It's habits you

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

wasn't all this mental it shaped lawn, I'm lazy this and that there's actually techniques and strategies to get things done. And what's interestingly at Omarama says, How did you get there? Great question.

00:30:16--> 00:31:07

One thing that I learned is that businesses, like businesses, like say, Apple and Google and car companies and stuff like that, they have to deliver a product on time, the engineers cannot say, Oh, we're lazy O'Shea, pon, you know, Goddess this time, sorry, we didn't make the cut off to ship, this product that we shipped, they always ship on time, always shipping on time, they don't delay, the only one that delays is Blackberry. Because remember blackberries back in the day, they actually are pretty much out a business because they got lazy shaytaan got, but apples and Google's and everybody. And so I studied them. And I studied like habits. And then once I started doing that and

00:31:07--> 00:31:32

putting it together, then Subhanallah, boom, boom, boom, boom, this started taking place, I was able to wake up at Federer, I was able to do this, I was able to do that. And I'll tell you guys that there are certain actions, there are certain behaviors, I'll give you a little glimpse of of how this works. There's a certain behavior. And it's called a vital behavior, that if you do it,

00:31:33--> 00:31:48

if you do this vital behavior, you will deliver, you will go to the gym, you will wake up in the early morning, it's a vital behavior. It's so important that you focus on this vital behavior. And, and I have,

00:31:49--> 00:32:27

like mastered trying to figure out what is that one linchpin linchpin is, you know, in a door, there's this one pin, that if you take that pin out, the whole door collapses, if you put that pin in, the door can close. And that's like, there's certain behaviors that are so vital like that once you figure out what a linchpin a vital behavior is, the door opens for you and you're able to get married, you're able to have children, you're able to go for Fajr vital behaviors, there's more to it than vital behaviors, but that's one of the most important things that that I took care of

00:32:35--> 00:32:42

just some people are telling me how late Aisha is. Oh my god, are you throwing excuses at me right now?

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

She says so late. I should just stop praying.

00:32:47--> 00:32:51

I drew so early. Why can't I just brew when I wake up?

00:32:58--> 00:33:00

Yeah, okay. So

00:33:01--> 00:33:48

here's let's let's get to some action that you can take right now. Okay. Number one is you have to change who's responsible. You have to change who's responsible. And the person who is responsible to make this change is you one of the most dangerous things you can do is blame che pod. Okay, that's che pond made me do it. Even on the Day of Judgment, if you made that excuse, shaytaan is like anybody Oh my God, nothing to do with you. It's not going to be accepted. Okay, so the first thing is take accountability for your action. So if you want it let's do this. If you missed a Salah today or yesterday or a fetcher, tell me why you didn't do it. Why did you not wake up?

00:33:50--> 00:33:51

Go ahead and tell me in the comments.

00:33:53--> 00:33:55

What did you tell yourself

00:33:58--> 00:34:29

that I was up till 10 I went to bed later or slept went to bed late. I'm a heavy sleeper identity. I identity statements are way more serious by the way, it'd be a lot. Take note of that. room wasn't clean, lazy, I was sleeping. I closed my alarm and said that I'm a deep sleeper. You know what I used to say that that that sh also before BS that I was that I'm just not a morning person. I am such a morning person now Hamdulillah.

00:34:32--> 00:34:33


00:34:34--> 00:34:55

the reason that I just did this little activity with you I just told you that you need to take responsibility, and nothing can change. If you think that something outside of you is the one making you miss Federer is the one making you not get married is the one making you not have kids is the one making you not make money in your business. So how about you do this?

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

This is really painful. This is really painful, but it's step number one

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


00:35:01--> 00:35:06

how about saying I didn't wake up for Fudger? Because I chose not to wake up?

00:35:08--> 00:35:08

How about that?

00:35:13--> 00:35:33

Oh, yes mean says no. I chose not to wake up. You know, because yeah, thank you MGT home based solutions Gina, that is the truth. It sounds scary, and it's painful. And I'm telling you, that is step number one is taking responsibility. I like to have other customers that savage.

00:35:36--> 00:35:39

This role says, it's hard to admit that but it's the truth.

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

I chose not to wake up.

00:35:45--> 00:36:11

So step number one, step number one is you need to take responsibility. And but the thing is, yes, it's painful. But that's step number one, if you can accept that you chose not to wake up for Voyager, you can also choose to wake up because you are in control. Okay, step number two is, okay. Let me put that aside. We don't have too much time here. It's just a quick webinar. But we have a whole course on this.

00:36:12--> 00:36:44

Number two is taking intelligent and strategic action. So not all action is, is strategic. Not all action is the same. The thing that I told you about vital behavior, if you can vital behavior is not something that you can just figure out off the top of your head, you actually have to run experiments, you select what is the vital behavior, like if you want to go to the gym and exercise every day, you want to go to the gym, and exercise every day. And by the way, here's another beautiful one.

00:36:46--> 00:36:51

I've been to the gym every day, like five days last week, five days.

00:36:55--> 00:37:10

Like 10 minutes before the gym opens at 530 in the morning, at 530. In the morning, even I was at the gym today. And I was telling the people I'm like, why is it so empty? There's like it's Sunday, only you're here.

00:37:13--> 00:37:27

It's so empty. You serve this day. What's the action that if you take it, it becomes like this is the strategic This is the vital behavior. If I do this, then I will go to the gym. What do you think it would be?

00:37:31--> 00:37:37

What's for you? What's the action that if you do it, you will go to the gym, you will exercise for example?

00:37:38--> 00:37:46

I says waking up early. I don't think so maybe I waking up early. But that's not the action. That's a result.

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

Nora says waking up for energy for Phaedra and staying awake.

00:37:52--> 00:37:59

It's still it's kind of like a result. Okay. Farhat is kind of along the lines, what if you go to bed wearing your gym clothes.

00:38:02--> 00:38:48

So I'll tell you guys a strategic action right now is to change your environment. It's and so it's not shaytaan it's not laziness. If you want to read more Quran, put a Quran stand beside your prayer area, so that when you're praying, you're looking at it. And after you finish pray your environment is right there most half just open and make your goal. I'm just going to open the page. I don't have to read if I don't want to my goal is just to open the page. How long does it take to open the page? Probably five seconds. And if you do that, chances are you'll read more on all right. The last point I'll share with you guys here is data.

00:38:51--> 00:39:20

Data is numbers. How do you know if you're getting better? Or worse? How do you know if you're getting closer to what you're doing? or further away? What are you measuring? How are you getting stronger? If I'm like lifting weights, for example, I measure Okay, what did i What did I lift last week? What should I be lifting now it becomes easier, I can see my progress. I know where I'm headed towards. So in your journey, a lot of people in your journey in life

00:39:21--> 00:39:52

we probably are taking, taking note or writing down metrics for nothing in our life, generally speaking nothing. So if you want to get married, are you tracking any data about that? If you want to buy a house? Are you tracking any data to bring you closer to that? If you want to have children? Are you tracking any data you will ask me well, what data can I track? That's not the point right now I can give you examples of data. Let's give the example of

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

of marriage for those who are looking to get married. The data could be like how many men

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

or how many women have you spoken to this week, and then start having a target of how many people you start introducing yourself to, I'm just giving an example. I'm not saying that that would work, that maybe that's a vital behavior, maybe it's not vital, maybe I haven't really been in that arena to understand. But that's just an example, sitting at home meeting nobody for six months, eight months is probably not gonna get somebody married. And so if you start tracking data, even if the numbers are 0000, or it's like Read, read, read every week, and take it from my experience in this dream, aka program and taking action, it takes about eight months. Let me let me mention that to

00:40:45--> 00:41:09

you, again, eight months of tracking every week, until your behaviors start turning green and start like lock it in. I feel like I need to write that down for you guys. Eight months. That is not one week, that is not two weeks, that is not 21 days later, says if you do add it for 21 days, you'll forever do after

00:41:11--> 00:41:22

that is eight months of track every week, in tracking red like 00. So somebody wants to get married, for example.

00:41:24--> 00:41:31

Eight months of every week saying I spoke to no one this week, next week, I spoke to no one I spoke to no one I spoke to No.

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

All right, I need to

00:41:39--> 00:42:22

Inshallah, tada, this is just an introduction. We are we have a course called raise your habits. And today's a very special day. Today's a very special day, actually. And very soon, because this program is recorded, you have access to all the recordings, the entire program, everything that I'm talking about here is already ready to go for you. It's already ready to go for you to already teach you all of these things to you know, learn about identity to learn about taking responsibility to figure out how to find your vital behaviors, how to make a habit, like what time you're going to do it, how long should it be five minutes, and so on.

00:42:25--> 00:43:09

All of those things are in this program. And it's pre recorded. But I know people like to also have a live component, a live component. And so because of that, in two hours from now, and two hours from now, I'm going to be teaching the entire class in two hours from now in one session, there won't be time to you know, take examples and, and do the action. But I'm going to teach the entire class, live right here, same lighting and all of that stuff into hours from now. So if you want to take this journey, and you want to make changes in your life, my question for you is what you have to lose and what you have to gain.

00:43:10--> 00:43:54

And so just to give you an example, Dream Walker, what I noticed after Visionaire is that there are a whole collection of doors of mine, that just year after year, they wouldn't be happening. They weren't manifesting. They weren't happening. I'm making up for them every year and I pushed so hard push so hard. And I feel that this course raise your habits was the answer to my door. Because after this course, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, a whole bunch of my drives that I've been making for so long. They just started happening. And I took action on them. They happen I can tell you, you know, this one happened that went out. But this one happened now. And I've been things I've been making

00:43:54--> 00:44:37

offered in the five years, seven years, and so on. And then I had a program like Hey, I know how to not, you know, you're not a tree. You're not making Dawn, you're a tree and you can't move you can get up and move. So why when it comes to door, you just sit there like Allah wants you to make dua and build a boat. I understand that some doors don't require you to build a boat, but some do, especially the ones that you have already been trying for so long to to make happen and they're not happening. Maybe you need to build a boat, and maybe just maybe this webinar right now is the answer to your dog.

00:44:40--> 00:44:41

Just maybe

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

there was a mother of nine who who took Dreamwalker with me the razor habits and and from the things that she learned. She was a nine kids nine children and actually I think she has 11 But I'm going on the lower scale

00:45:00--> 00:45:44

There was nine kids. And she was able to go consistently every week, multiple times to her swimming class, and to take up swimming, and to, you know, fix her timing and swimming and do all of that she would have never imagined that you could do that. Now, if that's the mom of nine children, how do you think she's showing up for her own kids, if she's able to take time and have that kind of, this is how you take action type of attitude. So inshallah Tada, I would love for you to hop on with us, Rosie, I'll give it to you. And you can tell people more about the program, raise your habits, which is Aqua hair, che SubhanAllah. Sheikh Mohammed just spoke to you guys.

00:45:47--> 00:46:21

00:47:00--> 00:47:37

That whole perfectionism that we talked about. It's about establishing habits that continue not just after Ramadan but in shallow life long this is a program I myself have gone through, we've had 1000s of students go through our dream aka razor habits program so this isn't something that is new and hasn't been tested mashallah so many incredible students who have come back year after year and not only taken it but have gone to on to accelerate and Hana their journey and what they wanted to accomplish.

So the program starts as soon as you join, you'll get access to your student portal, and you can start inshallah the live sessions are a few weeks down the road, so you have an opportunity to go through it. But the first live session is today with Sheikh Mohammed, so you get a nice overview of what the course is, and key components of it shift. Did you want to add anything else?

00:52:33--> 00:53:18

Let me um, maybe give like a little glimpse of essential fundamentals of what this course has. Number one is, identity who you become. So if you remember in the comments, somebody said that something like I'm lazy or when you make an identity statement, it's much more serious than saying oh che funded, there are excuses. And then there's next level of who are you? So if you took visionair with me, are you talking about de Aza and I spoke about identity like I am statements like, and it doesn't really work in the visionair formula, but it is essential. In this program, I'm going to show you how identity is probably one of the most essential things about you. If you can

00:53:18--> 00:53:26

change your identity and embrace a new identity, then your success is right there with identity a second.

00:53:29--> 00:54:16

A second fundamental and a pillar of this program, raise your habits is that you may not believe that you can make a change. Um, you may not believe that you can make a change. But here's the thing, you're probably only looking at a destination. If you are able to create habits, small habits, I'm talking about like five minute things, something you can do within five minutes. If you can build the habits and vital behaviors, or we'll talk about vital behaviors as another fundamental, then your habits eventually allow you to accept your identity. And if you accept identity, I'm vegetarian or I am I am a better person or I am this or I'm a more avid if you get a

00:54:16--> 00:54:59

good identity on behalf of the people on if you get a good identity like I said done deal you will be successful and solid data. The third thing is well what if I don't do my habits? Yeah, I have nice habits and I started them before but it doesn't continue. That's where the concept of vital behavior shows up. You don't need motivation. You don't need motivation. All you need to understand is what's the one action or two What's this action that if I do it I will be successful. Like what is this? What is this one thing and and my story that I was talking about with waking up professor you went back to vital had

00:55:00--> 00:55:46

Did I know what my vital habit is? And because of that every day, I can like knock it out, knock it out. And I know where to put my attention on this vital habit. So that, you know, everything falls into place. Number four is pillar is perfectionism. You're trying to be perfect. You're trying to get everything done now perfectly. And perfectionism is going to kill all your dreams is going to kill all your goals. Perfectionism is going to have you arrive here next year in the same boat. That's how deadly this dragon of perfectionism is. And so we don't care about perfectionism. We don't care whether, you know, I read a quote on seven days this week, you know, yeah, maybe I'm

00:55:46--> 00:56:04

tracking. But like I said, eight months of 0008 months, that's not perfectionism, that's just tracking data, be neutral about it, look at the data, the data will change, so long as you're measuring and moving forward. So

00:56:05--> 00:56:48

the fifth pillar is, undoubtedly, you're going to fail at some point, and you're going to fall What do you do so that you don't just give up everything like throw, throw the baby out with the bathwater, and everything is like God, how do you stand back up? How do you get back on track, this is also part of raise your habits. And not only that, this isn't just a course for now. These are life lessons that you're going to carry with you, I guarantee you for your entire life. And I'm pretty sure inshallah Tada one day when you're an old grandmother or grandfather, and your young grandchildren are going to come and Charlotte Allah, you will be teaching them these lessons as

00:56:48--> 00:56:51

well. This is what life is about. Go ahead and

00:56:55--> 00:56:56

is that blonde hair Shea.

00:56:58--> 00:57:34

And I just want to give like my own personal journey and testimonial. But if you go to our page, you'll see Marshall students just like you who have walked this journey who had goals and laws that they felt like were so unattainable or wouldn't even take or wouldn't even first of all make law for them because they felt like their path to it was so unclear and Alhamdulillah through this program, I feel like the clarity and handle the hope that it plans is what's so powerful, that we move away from that perfectionism. And you learn to plant small seeds, through those habits that build hope, build momentum and action, we're handed these dots, even if you can't imagine how it's gonna be

00:57:34--> 00:58:06

answered, you feel so hopeful towards it. And I know that's what my journey has been, and so many other students who have walked through that. So if you really feel like you're in a place right now, where at the end of the day you feel exhausted, you really just don't feel like you can feel fulfilled or feel. And you know, proud about what you accomplished. And you just feel like you're not taking any action and you're just stagnant or you've lost any connection that you had during Ramadan, this is your opportunity and I really encourage you in sha Allah to make that investment in yourself. And what I loved about specific example Sheikh Mohammed highlight about that mother is if

00:58:06--> 00:58:41
