i was listening to this lecture tonight, and it answered the bulky questions that lingered in my mind. they were tangled, and needed departmentalization. they require prioritization and Brother Omar Suleyman has delivered the speech in such a way, it is simple to start with - the heart.
key points mentioned - something to do, something to love and something to look forward. Actually, all the three points have been highlighted in the Quran (please listen to the video clip) so they aren't new to me. i thank the Brother for the reminder as it fed my tired mind and refreshen my spiritual level.
there shouldnt be anything that matters to bother our hearts, as our Creator says the world isnt enough for Him SWT to put the benefits/rewards prepared for the 'mukhlisin' for their deeds :) pleasing Allah SWT must be put as the top reason for doing anything in our lives.
for muslim coaches/anybody, this is another approach to drive us all in achieving our goals - happiness.
