Assalamu alaikum productive Muslims. Welcome to the show. I'm your host, Lee primary, and I am here with day 13 of the pre Ramadan boot camp. Now guess what everyone it is now round two for the weekly challenge. So if you have been following on with our weekly challenge round one, then great work. And thank you so much for posting your probe progress. Now it is time for round two. Now whether you got Yes, yes, yes. Meaning Yes, for your social, your spiritual and your physical for seven days, or just some of them or even none, then you deserve a pat on the back for being conscious about challenging yourself every day. Because changing going towards personal change is not easy. It is a
challenge. And some key lessons that you may have noticed this last week is that number one, when you're consciously tracking yourself to do something, you're more likely to get it done. Because you see, we tend to live in this autopilot mode. So it and this autopilot doesn't help us do the heavy task of improving ourselves consciously. And so these weekly challenges are meant to help you make the conscious effort to improve yourself. And number two, the dynamics of the group accountability is helpful just by going and typing in Yes, yes, yes or no No, no for your challenge is psychologically powerful to encourage yourself to get the challenge done. So I'd like to see more of
you participating in this. And if you haven't started and you're just starting now then Better late than ever love to see your comments. Alright, so now let's start off with this week's challenge. Are you ready? So let's get started. For the grip challenge, I want to suggest that we foster minimum two days in a row. So one of fasting can be easy, but two days in a row or three days in a row will give you a pretty good idea of what to expect what to expect Ramadan, we feel like so give it a go this week a picture days and resolve that you will fast them. Now I'm going to go ahead and read up the spiritual challenges that we have the physical challenges and the social challenges. So just a
few things before I start reading these out. If you are still working on last week challenges and you'd like to continue then you can go ahead with that. However, if you'd like to challenge yourself further and get new challenges, then you can choose from any of these.
