kenalilah akoo dan kamoo..

You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.


Seeing what the saying says.. hurm.. for me, to get the courage to do something risky and extraordinary needs a lot of thinking and strategy. so that we'll not be falling apart. everything has to have back up plans. It's all about how much you understand your ability is.. and how much you want to push yourselves to the limit.

I love challenges as at the end of the day, I find myself learning something about me, how much am I able to do things, to handle thing [my self-efficacy] ...

As Albert Bandura puts it, "The most effective way of creating a strong sense of efficacy is through mastery experiences. Successes build a robust belief in one's personal efficacy. Failures undermine it, especially if failures occur before a sense of efficacy is firmly established."

And how much I can sustain and remain motivated to conduct things through self-regulation and self-control.. as puts it as "many processes individuals use to manage drives and emotions. Therefore, self regulation also embodies the concept of will power".


Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.
Dale Carnegie

yeah. I want to feel that too. I remembered winning GOLD medal for Sparring and Pattern Routines during my Taekwondo years back in school and also when I served as Programme Manager handling Tesl Community Weekend comprising ALL TESLians from Universities around Malaysia, I'm ecstatic! I'm beyond happy although thru the times, mostly I had to endure the pain but in the end, it pays a LOT. i'm not talking about money here, but more to the satisfaction that I CAN DO IT! I'm thrilled even to think about it! :D

and this Winston Churchill continues to convince me that,

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Winston Churchill

you have to be optimist in whatever you're doing. hurm.. sometimes, a little of pessimistic is necessary to keep the thinking going for the plan B, if in case. It's not like we're wanting and waiting for the failure but just to keep our conscious thinking regulates, and make us realise to be in state of realistic and NOT too much of idealistic.

and then, Picasso added,
Everything you can imagine is real.
Pablo Picasso

erk! Hurm.. memang la. We need to think forward so that we did not stuck in a comfort zone for too long, because it may result to the scenarios of laying back, doing nothing, just like what some teachers do [from what i heard].. they are lacking in imagination, imagination to teach their students better, understanding students mischieves and realising their potentials.

An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Benjamin Franklin

sebab cikgu or the knowledge transmitter never realise that what Franklin says is true and that's very unfortunate.. :(

not all teachers are like that and for STUDENTS who failed to perform their roles as a STUDENT, mureed who WANT to learn, also lacking in imagination, of HAVING DREAMS to become better, they dont even recognise their own potentials, how others could? hurm...

as this fella says,

We are born weak, we need strength; helpless, we need aid; foolish, we need reason. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man’s estate, is the gift of education

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

YES! Education! Because education gives human wisdom, paradigms to look upon. and thru education, human can realise their own potentials and work towards it. Sebenarnya, susah nak sedar yang kita punya harapan yang lebih baik nun in the future, because we're too scared of failure. It's better we stay put rather than try something new and these scenarios i see a LOT in Malays including me.. the very me. BUT, the drive to enjoy things differently come about through a societal layer called FRIENDS, PEER.. COMRADES, COLLEAGUES and other various names but carry one and only role, as HUMAN's COMPANY..

They brings out a different us in us. when we're with friends, we acted BOLDLY and sometimes STUPID or baka as japanese puts it, but we didnt afraid to fail because we know we have the support we need. we gain the courage and trust and keep ourselves regulated healthy enough as we are capable of REALISING our own POTENTIALS.

as this famous Muslim philospher puts it,

Manusia yang paling lemah ialah yang tidak sanggup mencari teman dan yang paling lemah daripada itu ialah yang mensia-siakan teman yang telah diperolehinya.
Imam Al-Ghazali

BETUL! manusia memerlukan various kinds of social layers so that they can accumulate their potentials from different angels. we have to make full use of our friends, [note: it's not like taking for granted] as human is developed best true mastery experiences. friends is different from family. we do NEED them both in order to develop better and move to another step, level of life, by trying something new.

but in order to become BETTER person, we need to appreciate them and play also a ROLE of a good and trusted friends for their benefits of becoming a better person too. GIVE and TAKE, that what friends are about. we have to be sincere and put trust as the MOTTO for the friendship. idealistic, aite?

hurm, reality is, terrrrrrrrrlalu ramai kawan makan kawan. kenapakah? that's what i said earlier, TRUST. To generate trust takes time, but it worth it! serious! we all, obviously hated betrayal, aite? as well as stab in the back etc.

Tuhan Maha Adil dan Maha Mengetahui. itu semua ujian and petunjuk dariNya to make us STRONGER to the challenges and hurdles ahead. percaya atau tidak, manusia memang akan belajar melalui kesilapan. tak kiralah the hard way ke soft and smoothe way or anything, yang penting, manusia mempunyai daya pemikiran kritis yang developed resistance "alah bisa tegal biasa" and pemikiran kreatif to come out with strategies to steer the wheel of life out of the tsunami..

as what this man says,

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.
Dale Carnegie

so, kawan2.. let's make a difference!
[or even differences maybe??]

we have our own potentials
jangan sia-siakan hidup

semoga kita di hisab di Padang Mahsyar kelak
sebagai Mukmin yang sejati
mukmin yang fully utilise what GOD has given you
your unique talents,
your true ability

make full use of it..
kerana ALLAH
ketahuilah kawan2,
ALLAH gives that to you,
for/with reasons..
the most obvious one is
because He LOVEs you..
so, try to appreciate the Love He gave
by loving Him back..
by utilising it for the benefit of yourselves and others
try to look for His Love in Your Soul,
it's called The Light

So, make it Brighter, my friend!

kalu research paper ni bgs nie hehe

erm btol tue ku stuju ngn entry ni be optimistic

slaluny negative tought itu dtg dr
syaitan,sbb die suke bila manusia dlm keadaan berduka n resah gelisah
so buang jauh2 rase negative dlm diri itu kerana ia xkn sesekali n xkan pernah akan mendatangkn sbrg kebaikan dlm diri kita..or org lain..

coz kite xtau ape y org lain pikir unless kite directly tny kt org tue..kdg2 kite jek terlebey pikir sbnry benda tue biase jek hehe..

any negative assumption jus akn memenatkn minda n ati n akn membuatkn syaitan eppi..
