Success in this life and the next: How to create the balance
Our belief in the hereafter is one of the six pillars of faith; However, this pillar - if not understood properly - could have side effects including, losing interest in worldly affairs and a lack of productivity.
It seems that many of us fall into one of two extremes: either highly spiritual but not productive in worldly life, or secular/focusing on worldly success while not actively working for the afterlife. We need to learn the balance to get the best of both worlds.
What You'll Learn:
-The importance of having the right OS (Operating System) in order for your mind, body, and soul to function in the best way possible.
-How the Akhirah mindset can boost your productivity, success, and your worldly affairs.
-How the Akhirah creates a fire within our hearts that does not stop at feelings or emotions, but drives us to act wisely and effectively in the spiritual, social, and physical spheres of our lives.
-Clearly define your investment for the afterlife in terms of planting seeds; this mindset should boost your goal setting and help you focus on your goals.
-Creative ways to visualize the time we spend on earth, and compare it with the bigger picture of Dunya+ Akhirah.
