Eyesight and Mindsight

Eyesight is judging on what you see... ...judging according to appearances... but mindsight is how you interpret what you see.

One guy said, "its not possible, it's over, I'm finished! I can't do it. I can't make it." He surrendered!

"I've faced rejection again and again, I'm not going anymore! There are no jobs out there!"

But this other guy, he felt that in spite of the "no's" and rejections .... in spite of how bad the economy is, in spite of what the newspapers are saying ... that it's possible. That "somebody somewhere, will give me a job." He just kept going! Thinking it was possible. That's what we have to do with our dreams.
Because things happen to you in life, that you can never ever anticipate. And many times when those things happen, we give up! Easy is not an option. It's hard living! Life is hard... See it's hard when, when you are forty-nine years old, been working on a job for seventeen years ...... and they come in and tell you "you're finished" and give you one week's severance pay. And you have to start all over again. It's hard handling just the tragedies of life. It's hard. When you're working on something, and you put everything you have in it ..... and it doesn't work out -- you lose your money and other people's money.
Know what I discovered? When you're working at your dream, somebody said: "the harder the battle, the sweeter the victory!"
It's good -- why? See......what you become in the process that's more important than the dream! That's far more important! The kind of person you become, the character that you build, the courage that you develop, the faith that you're manifesting!
Oh it's, it's something that -- you get up, you look yourself in the mirror... you're a different kind of person, you walk with a different kind of spirit. You've got to have that kind of courage, that type of determination, if you want to make it happen. It's you. You've got to take personal responsibility to make it happen. You must have faith! You've got to believe in yourself! You've got to believe in your abilities, you`ve got to believe in your service, your company, your ideas! Unquestionably! You`ve got to have faith, and that faith gives you ... patience!
But it`s not going to happen as quickly as you want it to happen! 
New Voice: It`s your dream -- if you want it to happen -- make it happen! If you want it to happen -- rise and grind! I dare you not to go back to sleep! I dare you to get up! And I dare you to chase your dreams!
Old Voice: It's possible you can win!
Whatever comes to you, don't run from it. Don't try and duck it, like most people do......drive toward it!
You want to make your dreams come true? You got to stay focused!
Some people would rather get even, than get ahead!
Stay focused on where you want to go! Where're you going with your life?
Jinhain Mein Dhondta Tha Asmanon Mein Zameenon Mein
Woh Nikle Mere Zulmat Khana-e-Dil Ke Makeenon Mein
The one I was searching for on the earth and in heaven
Appeared residing in the recesses of my own heart


mam Ali (AS): "Whoever has identified his self in reality has recognized his Creator." 
When someone is mean, don’t listen. When someone is rude, walk away. When someone tries to put you down, stay firm. Don’t let someone else’s bad behavior destroy your inner peace.
