Opportunities are everywhere. Some may be presented to you, some just happen to pass you by, some are open and made for you. It's how you make do with it that matters in the next course of your journey. I heard this somewhere and it made a lot of sense..
"Give OPPORTUNITY a CHANCE." Many times, we shut off things that we are unfamiliar of, or things that we've had a bad experience with. Based on that little prior knowledge or information that we have, we choose to assume and let that opportunity fly past us. I am guilty of that. I wasted 2 months, considering about this business because I was sceptical. However, I was lucky enough to be given a second chance at it. I am blessed to have been presented with this opportunity and will continue to strive in it with passion.
Along the course of these couple of months, I've had people who either support me fully of what I do and also, those who question and mock my cause. It's OK. We can't please everyone and we can't change the minds of these people. However, I have refined the way I react to these small minded individuals. Barking back all the time will not help, BUT, if you step on my toes, don't expect me to just watch and let it be. I am nice, but I do bite when necessary.
Criticising individuals OPENLY, especially on social media, truly reflects the kind of individual you are. Yes, we are all entitled to our own opinions, but if you cross the wire and step on many toes, then something must be wrong with the things you are saying or doing. There is also such things as criticising/commenting with a strong basis and stand, that one, I have utmost respect for. You need to be responsible for what you write. You can't just splash out words and not own up for it. Such cowardice acts are not appreciated, especially by me. It's funny how some people say without much thought. That, we have to work on. I'm not here to disturb your rice bowl, and I hope will you not do that to me or my team. *peace*
Just remember this, "Jangan jadi orang yang hanya pandai mengkritik sedangkan kita sendiri terlalu banyak kelemahan. Belajar mensyukuri segala ketetapan Allah SWT, walaupun kita mungkin tidak menyukainya..."
This also serves as a reminder to myself. We might not always like the things we hear or see, but we need to learn how to respect others.
This new business has also enable me to make more friends, widen my network of contacts and meet inspiring individuals. A meeting with the founder, reassured me to why I entered this business. He made me see amazing opportunities ahead. As a team, I will ensure that everyone will grow and be better individuals then before they stepped into the business. I'm also now like a big sister to many of my team members which is such a great feeling! Alhamdulillah! ;)
I started a sceptic and is now a believer. My hands were trembling at the ATM machine when I wanted to withdraw my first payout. I told myself, if this were true and not a scam, may this rezeki that I receive be a start to many more great things ahead. The husband took a video of me giggling in front of the ATM machine, he said, this is a milestone in history. This payout is the first of many more to come, Insya'Allah. And so, I took that money out and flashed it, because I want people to see that it is NOT as scam. What I took out was what the company gave me. I did not purposely do that just to show off. It was to state a point, that what I am doing is for real. This business might not make you a millionaire, but it allows you to have that extra passive income, just so you can lead a more comfortable lifestyle, the kind that will allow you to breathe and enjoy life a little bit more, Insya'Allah... Thank you Allah for this amazing opportunity. It has been a challenging but a very fulfilling journey. I want people to see my vision and if I'm able to do that, then something about what i'm doing, is right. Subahan'Allah. ;)
My team is growing steadily but surely. And I will do my best to be with them, guide them with the right knowledge and skills to grow themselves.
