I watched a Chinese drama called Princess Weiyoung and there is something that I learnt from the drama. There are different types of people; genuinely kind and honest, crystal clear evil or dare devil and the third group is the cunning ones. Combating the crystal clear evil is way much better than the cunning ones. A cunning and sly person can appear as your friend, who is doing something for your own good but actually the evil intention is laid underneath which you won’t be able to see, just like the iceberg theory. Beware, guard yourself from falling into the hypocrite’s trap.

when things get out of your hands

Sometimes, trivial things, which are not worth your attention, can go out of your hands. People are just waiting to do things out of their selfishness. When this happens, how will you manage the situation?

If it’s out of your hands, it deserves freedom from your mind too.

-Ivan Nuru-

I believe this is the best thing for me to do at this point of time. Get them out of my mind.

To please Allah or to please …

The answer is very obvious

Rasulullah P.B.U.H said, “He who displeased Allah for seeking the pleasure of people, Allah is displeased with him and those people are also displeased, for pleasing whom he had earned Allah’s displeasure. And he who pleases Allah, although by it he displeased people, Allah is pleased with him, and also those people whom he had displeased for pleasing Allah become pleased with him. Allah makes him splendid and his speech and acts in the eyes of others beautiful.” [Tabarani]

To please those who are not pleased

My goodness. This task is not easy for leaders. The saying ‘you cannot please everyone’ is true. You might be able to please one person, but others might not be happy with you. Nonetheless, as leaders you cannot ignore them. More importantly, leaders must possess effective communication skills to comfort the unhappy ones. All the best.
