Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition. – Abraham Lincoln
You have some advice? Give it! You have something someone can benefit from? Offer it! You have ideas worth sharing? Go ahead! You have a solution to someone’s problem? Tell them! You have a piece of knowledge that affected you in a positive way? Share it!
One day … everything you gave, offered, shared, or taught, will be remembered by all and will be important when it really matters and when it really counts be it in life or in the life hereafter.
Don’t worry about what people might “think”. Don’t worry about how people will take it. Don’t worry about looking self righteous. And no … you are not a hypocrite! unless you are totally doing the opposite of what you advise or share.
Have a clear, sincere intention to make the world a better place for the sake of god and leave shyness and worry aside, and be the best you can be under god’s light and guidance using the best of manners and the best of language.
On this blessed day of Ramadan, I wish us all strength, courage and generosity to share with others what we wish others can share with us.
