The first pillar of Islam is “Shahada” which means a declaration of faith or bearing witness to the faith.
Bearing witness is to show that something exists or is true.
This should be the first step in whatever we want to achieve.
Perhaps it is aligned with the famous Napoleon Hill’s quote: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
But how on earth we can achieve anything by only believing?
If you declare your faith or your dream, you eliminate unnecessary things. It gives you a target and shows you the path to your dreams. In the journey, failures will show you the way by giving you the wrong directions. Nothing is wasted.
Declare your destination definitively, believe it will exist. Keep it on your head at all time. Watch how eventually you will see the clear path to your dreams.
