Motivational Article

My university wanted me to write a motivational article in their magazine. The first thought that came to me was ‘that kind of  awkward’… It was all so sudden and also – unfortunately – I’m the kind of person who can’t say no to requests like that.

So I didn’t say yes… I said ‘it will be my honor’… having nothing in my mind to write about as I said that.

I started to think that maybe I’m not the right person to write about that, it is hard for me to motivate my self even, I remembered the many times I had thought about how I worked so hard to manage in my fields, I struggle most of the time.

Looking at my self I realized that I’m not………… and here it was, my North star. I realized the title for my motivational speak, the rest came out naturally.

So I wanted to share my Motivational Article with you all, entitled (We are not Perfect)….

‘We are not perfect’

     A statement which is true, but sadly, it’s always been used as an excuse. It is what we tell ourselves every time someone, or we, pinpoint a flaw in us. By saying we can’t be perfect, we are just humans, we give ourselves the excuse not to pursue a better us. Perfect is a vast scale that for us seems limitless.

Being fully perfect means to reach a certain limit… why have a limit when we can always work to better ourselves. Our flaws shouldn’t be our excuses to stop polishing ourselves, our flaws are the reason why we go on to correct them, and by doing so, broadening our own horizon, making our journey through life worth while.

We live in the modern world now, realizing the previous concept, this adapted new way of thinking is more realistic today than it was ever before. Thanks to the people who have broadened their own horizon and brought that modern world to us, people who advanced in their fields for the sake of the advancement of the human race. There isn’t any single person who can hear this without thinking of the many Nobel Prize winners and of the many vital technologies that houses or establishments can’t do without. Thanks to them, we have a better chance to achieve success in even more than one field. Today’s gifts – which are presented through the digital world of computers and world web, and through the advanced knowledge compiled throughout the years of addition – had strengthened our once weakened will, arming us with better means to try more for our selves and others, creating not a perfect world… but a limitless one. We can certainly say, that the skies are no longer our limits, we have already reached them.

    It’s funny, I actually saw a motivational speaker just the other day. While this approach is very different, I find a substantial amount of truth in it, technology really has made it a world where we have no limits. It allows a person like me, an engineering student, to find a creative outlet writing. I really enjoyed the article!

    I enjoyed your article very much. But I have a confession to make, I enjoyed the leap of creativity which brought it to your attention – a good illustration, I think, of the thrilling potential of the human mind. Bravo.

      Thank you very much Wanderlust… I am extremely glad you enjoyed my article.

      best of luck to you and your beloved ones 🙂

    Wonderful post Ahamin! Congratulations on your firstborn. Your life is fascinating so I’ve no doubt your books are and will continue to be so as well. I love reading story’s woven by authors who come from different cultures, locations and experiences from what is typical in the US. An authors experiences in life shine through his/her books in much the same way a babe born carries its parents traits. I’m working on my own firstborn. Blessings to you and on the births of your upcoming children.

    This is amazing! Keep it up!

    • ahamin · April 25, 2012

      Thanks… you are very kind 🙂

      • LexoKat · April 25, 2012

        Also checked out that bit of your book and it’s great! 🙂

      • ahamin · April 25, 2012

        Waw… thanks… that’s so sweet of you.
        I released it already but since I’m busy with my senior year, I only placed it in Kuwait and Egypt since I can manage them there.
        This summer I’ll be hosting a book signing in London, and place it on amazon.
        Time is my only enemy 🙂
        Any how, thank you, and I hope one day my book will find its way to your shelves.

        Best wishes for you and for all your beloved ones

      • LexoKat · April 25, 2012

        Well, I’m in Kuwait, so if I have any chance to get any new books I will surely get yours. That’s if, ’cause I’m having my finals and in 2 months I’m leaving. But I will try to get it from amazon if it’s not on my bookshelves already.

        Keep it up!

      • ahamin · April 25, 2012

        All the best in your finals. You should be motivated after reading my article 🙂
        Make sure to follow my blog if you want to know if I released the book on Amazon or any other online bookstore.
        Study well 🙂

      • LexoKat · April 25, 2012

        Without trying to be too full of myself, I’m quite a motivated person, but it’s never enough. So reading the article did help. Thank you!

    Great post! This is my second time in recovery and realize that this is a lifelong process!

    • ahamin · May 17, 2012

      Thanks for liking my post, but what are you recovering from if I may ask?
      Keep going, and be positive and grateful…and don’t just call yourself that 🙂 be that person

    Very good article and it’s true “it’s always been used as an excuse”

    • ahamin · May 24, 2012

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. People have a way in putting themselves down, giving themselves the chance to give up. But I think if ppl change the way they think about their flaws, they’ll give themselves a chance to keep going.
      Thanks for enjoying my post 🙂

      • Indira · May 24, 2012

        Looking forward to read your book. Some day….

      • ahamin · May 24, 2012

        Thanks… May it find its way to your shelves one day
