Perspective

Setiap manusia, memiliki kelebihan dan kekurangannya masing-masing. Ada yang dikaruniai kecerdasan luar biasa, tapi terhambat kekurangan dalam masalah fisik (invalid). Ada yang fisiknya sempurna, tapi kurang memaksimalkan potensi kecerdasannya (malas belajar).

Ada yang face dan rupanya menawan, namun attitudenya sangat memprihatinkan. Angkuh dan suka merendahkan orang lain. Ada yang face dan rupanya biasa-biasa aja, tapi sopan, ramah, berbakat dan disukai banyak orang.

Like day and night. You can’t have it all at the same time. There is no such thing as a perfect life. But there are people who can always make the best out of everything.

Positive thinking brings positive results

More focus on the good sides of you and improve. Jika kekurangan itu sifatnya bisa diperbaiki, mari mengubahnya menjadi lebih baik mulai saat ini. Attitude, karakter dan kecerdasan, insya Allah bisa di-upgrade jika kita benar-benar mau dan bertekad kuat untuk itu. Mintalah pertolongan Allah.

Pun jika kekurangan tersebut bersifat permanen dan menetap, seperti ketidaksempurnaan dalam hal fisik. One thing you should do is accept yourself. It’s a gift from Allah.

Suatu karunia yang Allah berikan (yang seringkali dipandang sebagai kekurangan), namun kadang justru menyimpan hikmah tersendiri bagi kita. Allah created us for a purpose.

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~ Unknown

Allah melebihkan sebagian kita dari sebagian yang lain. Jangan pernah merasa kita harus seperti si A, si B, si C.. No, focus on you only, not others. Be the best version of yourself, not people.

Dengan lebih memfokuskan kepada kelebihan diri, manusia akan terhindar dari kufur nikmat. Hitunglah kekurangan dan hal-hal yang membuat kita merasa incomplete, lalu bandingkan dengan kelebihan dan nikmat-nikmat yang Allah berikan. Mana yang lebih banyak?

Jangan biarkan kekurangan yang kita miliki membentuk konsep negatif tentang diri kita. Kenali diri kita, kenali potensi yang kita miliki, kenali kekurangan yang ada dalam diri, bukan untuk diratapi tapi untuk diperbaiki, to be better day by day.

See from a different angle

Somesay, the only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it.

Focus on the good side of you helps you to feel more complete as a human being. Makes you feel whole. Once you accept your flaws, no one can use them against you.

Let the past be a reminder for the future. To improve the person you are into the better person you’re yet to be.

Good morning!ย ๐Ÿ™‚
