Tell Me Why?

Last week I wrote about a word WHY and today Tell Me Why?

It is about a beautiful song, single by singer Declan Galbraith. On December 9th 2002, the largest choir in history, drawn from all parts of the UK and Ireland joined Declan to sing ‘Tell Me Why’ for a Guinness World Record. The event was organized by ‘Young Voices in Concert’. Funds from the record-breaking attempt were donated to the Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

My facebook friend, Lorna Olitch sent the Tell Me Why video and instantly it strikes my mind to share it here with you guys.

. . . .  The lyrics . . . .

In my dream children sing a song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue and fields are green and laughter is the language of the world
Then I wake and all I see is a world full of people in need

Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand.
When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand.
Tell me why?

Everyday I ask myself what will I have to do to be a man?
Do I have to stand and fight to prove to everybody who I am?
Is that what my life is for to waste in a world full of war?

Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand.
When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand.
Tell me why?

(children) tell me why? (declan) tell me why?
(children) tell me why? (declan) tell me why?
(together) just tell me why, why, why?

Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don’t understand.
When so many need somebody we don’t give a helping hand.

Tell me why (why,why,does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why,why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?

(why,why do we say we care)
Tell me why (why,why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why,why do the dolphins cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die ?

(why,why if we’re all the same)
tell me why (why,why do we pass the blame)
tell me why (why,why does it never end)
can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?

Tomorrow I shall continue with “Successful Mission” series. Stay tune! and Have a great weekend.

The word Why?

Today’s post is especially to remind myself and also to my fellow muslim friends who are here. Since today is Friday, this the best I share a hadith, which is the words from our Prophet Nabi Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam).

Hadrat Ma’adh Johani radi-allaho anhu reports that Rasulullah (Sallalllahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Whoever reads The Holy Quran and acts upon what is contained in it, his parents will be made to wear a crown on the Day Of Judgement, the brilliance of which will excel that of the sun, if the same were within your worldly houses. So, what do you think about a person who himself acts upon it?”

Thus, it is through the virtues of reading the Holy Quran and acting upon it that the parents of the reader will be honored with a crown, where the glow of the crown will far excel the light of the sun even if the sun were within one’s own house. The sun is at a great distance from us and even then its light is so bright. If the sun comes down in one’s house, its light and glow will surely increase manifold in one’s house. The light of the crown to be worn by the parents of the reader will be brighter than that. This is in store for the parents, now ponder what will be the reward to her or she who read the Holy Quran himself or herself. Surely the reward will be more.

But nowadays, we as muslim neglects this reading of the Holy Quran. Now I want you to look into this. It is all about the word “WHY”. (CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW)

Successful Mindset : Mindset of a Millionaire

Guys, I would like to wish you a happy weekend. Today I am writing this blog beside a pool at Berjaya Club. Since it is the first day of School holiday, I am here with my family and I never forget to bring along my HP notebook. Since my children are busy themselves with the pool, let me busy with this sharing.

Okay…where are we? Oh… here it goes.

Remember Late Night Legend, David Letterman, interviewed billionaire Donald Trump not long ago (june 2006) on his show. Letterman asked Trump what he would do if he lost everything and had to start over from scratch.

Trump’s response was that he would find a great network marketing company and get to work.

When he received some hisses and boos from the audience, he looked out at them with complete and total authority and responded, “That’s why I am sitting down here and you are all sitting out there”.

Why? The wealthy and successful think differently than the rest. It’s really quite cut and dry. They have already created the millions; it’s part of their everyday life. There are no belief issues, the proof is in their bank accounts, investments, and assets. You see it in the clothes they wear, the cars they drive, and the vacations they take. There is a confidence about them and they are able to put their head on their pillow at night, knowing that their affairs are in order ( I am not saying that wealth eliminates all problems, but it provides opportunity).

The confidence and belief, which is their reality, must be understood before you can create real, longstanding, stable wealth. This is the first and most important issue you will face.

“How does one think and operate as the person who has already attained wealth, when they are still broke?”

To reach the goal of thinking as a wealthy and successful entrepreneur, and finding your financial thermostat you MUST understand the following:

  • You will never outperform your self-image
  • You cannot earn more than you believe you are worth
  • You will settle for exactly as much as you think you are worth
  • You are the only one that can determine what you are worth

At this stage, many people ask, “What does this mean?” “How do I know where my financial thermostat is set right now?”

Your first step is to look at the average income of your 10 closest friends and family members. Chances are you earn approximately as much as they can. This is where it gets difficult for some people to grasp.

You see, you have been conned into believing that this is all you are worth! It was not done intentionally, people are just accustomed to believing that they should be content with their lot in life, and don’t understand the greater context of the fact that we each control our “lot in life”. For them to think outside the box is uncomfortable. When one starts to think outside the box, it makes neighbors, family and friends uncomfortable too. Your family and friends are accustomed to what they believe is possible in their reality. Fortunately for us, we create, and participate actively in our own reality, ultimately guiding the outcome with or previous decisions. They want you to be safe and feel “comfortable is safe”. Having a job is traditionally accepted as secure and safe, and that most entrepreneurs go broke in a few years. You can see their logic, “Don’t venture outside your own backyard, it is dangerous out there and people crash and burn”. You can use this same logic and say not to fly or drive, because many people die in car accidents and planes could fall from the sky, so you better just stay home and be safe.

Okay guys, I shall continue this sharing tomorrow as my children are shouting for me to join them in the pool. Until my next post tomorrow, just sit back and think about this “Mindset of a Millionaire” and starts to think outside the box!

Successful Mindset

Guys, I am preparing some articles to be fit in this blog for the next one week. It is about marketing online and how to successful online. There are many criteria to talk about this. If I were to talk this in length it will be like a live conference. I do not want to do that. I just wanna share it here, yes, here at my own blog with my own domain name. It is personalize by me, Rosli Hanip at roslihanip[dot]com.

Picture yourself standing on the rocky stone overlooking a crystal clear blue lake . . . the wind blowing in your hair and the sunshine (like in Malaysia..example tioman island) on your face. Your eyes are closed as you relish the moment. You remember that the mountains are in the distance across the lake.

You can hear birds in the air, and waves lightly floating onto the shore. The cabin you rented is about hundred yards behind you as you now sit barefoot on the rock with your feet in the water. You realize that your mind is perfectly clear, like the blue lake water, and your senses are alive and well. You smile as you recall that there is no employer expecting you back to work. You are on no schedule but your own. There is literally enough money in your bank account to allow you to stay right here for the rest of your life . . . . . and at some point, you just might do that. Your life is full of options and you feel at peace.

Stay tune for more juice from this “Successful mindset” topic or sharing for the next one week.
