I have mixed feelings about this pandemic.
On one hand, I feel there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
On the other hand, I was wondering if we all can survive the ‘forced’ vaccination.
I remember watching this one Gary Vee’s video. (The video is not about the pandemic though)
He said we need to be optimistic. Keep being positive no matter how bad a condition is.
Surround yourself with people who keep being positive, who keep working on getting out of a bad situation, not just complaining about it.
(p/s: Gary Vee curses a lot. Eventhough I emulate his business model in creating my content portfolios, I prefer not to listen or read his advice that much as I don’t want to absorb his cursing vibration..)
Back to the pandemic stories.
Years ago, I was reading and listening to quite a lot regarding Eschatology (ilmu akhir zaman).
I even bought the book Book of the End – Great Trials & Tribulations – by Imam Ibn Kathir (I read the English version).
I also attended a lecture by Sheikh Imran Hossein in UPM in the year 2014. (He talks about this Eschatology a lot).
So, when PKP began in March last year, I had a thought: Is this the beginning of an end?
Adakah ini permulaan akhir zaman?
Long story short, now back to 2021.
Previously I read again about what is really going on. There are complicated terms to describe everything.
To summarize it: apa yang berlaku sekarang adalah untuk ‘reset’ the current system.
I don’t want to explain in details here, it might scare the readers. Trust me, you don’t want to be scared.
My advice would be: just focus on contribution.
Life is fragile. We don’t know how long we will still be alive.
But we already know from Surah Al-Mulk, Allah created life and death to see which of us is best in deeds.
Exalted is He who holds all control in His hands; who has power over all things; who created death and life to test you [people] and reveal which of you does best––He is the Mighty, the Forgiving[Al Mulk 67: 1-2]
Yang menjadikan mati dan hidup, supaya Dia menguji kamu, siapa di antara kamu yang lebih baik amalnya. Dan Dia Maha Perkasa lagi Maha Pengampun.[Al Mulk 67: 2]
So, just be the best version of ourselves.
For myself, I always think I am good in creating content.
So I need to be the best Content Creator & Content Marketing Strategist. I should keep sharing my contents through various platforms (including this blog) and help those who seek for help.
What are you good at? How will you maximize your contribution to the world? Comment below. (Ok I’m just joking. There’s no comment area below.)
