GOD DOES NOT BURDEN A SOUL BEYOND THAT IT CAN BEAR.
— Quran (2:286)
It is important to understand that every hardship that we face in life is a test from God. It is a test of patience, devotion and trust in God. God does not burden anyone with any trouble in which they are unable, physically or mentally, to bear. This means that regardless of the situation, God is choosing to test you with that challenge because He knows that you can get through it: that you are strong enough. So trust in that, trust in that strength that God gave you. Because after the storm, comes a rainbow.

It’s always a little bit frustrating to me when people have a negative relationship with failure. Failure is a massive part of being able to be successful.
You have to get comfortable with failure, you have to actually seek failure – failure is where all of the lessons are.
You know, when you go to the gym and you work out, you’re actually seeking failure – you want to take your muscles to the point where you get to failure because that’s there the adaptation is and that’s where growth is.
Successful people fail a lot, they fail a whole lot more than they succeed. They extract the lessons from the failure and they use the energy and the wisdom to come around to the next phase of success.
You’ve gotta take shot, you’ve got to live at the edge of your capabilities. You gotta live where you’re almost certain that you’re going to fail.
That’s the reason for practice. Practice is controlled failure, you’re getting to your limit, getting to your limit, getting to your limit. You can’t lift that, you can’t do that until you get to the point that all of a sudden your body makes the adjustment and then you can do it.
Failure actually helps you to recognize the areas where you need to evolve.
— Will Smith
A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs crowded around the pit and saw how deep it was, they told the two frogs that they’re was no hope left for them.
However, the two frogs decided to ignore what the others were saying and they proceeded to try and jump out of the pit. Despite their efforts, the group of frogs at the top of he pit were still saying that they should just give up.
Eventually, one of the frogs took heed to what the others were saying and he gave up, falling down to his death. The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die.
He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.
** There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day. So be careful of what you say.
Let fear be a counselor and not a jailer.
Success is buried on the other side of frustration.
Begin to live as though your prayers are already answered.
When you are grateful fear disappears and abundance appears.
Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning you give to it.
Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.
Life is found in the dance between your deepest desire and your greatest fear.
Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.
Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.
