How to build a positive mindset.

Nobody comes into our life by chance.

It was the case when my friend’s son, 4 years old, came into her life. A kid with special needs like everyone. Indeed, we are all unique with our own special needs and each one his mission on Earth.

That of her son is to help her build a positive mindset.


When he smiles, he reminds her to be grateful to the One who created her for all His blessing and to be merciful towards those around her.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“Whoever among you wakes up in the morning secure in his dwelling, healthy in his body, and he has his food for the day, then it is as if the whole world has been given to him” (Reported by al-Tirmidhi)

«When you smile to your brother’s face, it is charity » (Reported by al-Tirmidhi)

Accepting our fate helps us to move forward and be patient. For that, we have to think positively about our Creator. Thus, we can rely only on Him and not despair.

Our Lord (SWT) said in this Hadith Qudsi :

“I am as My servant thinks of Me. I am with him when he remembers Me. If he mentions Me within himself, I mention him within Myself.

If he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in a better assembly. If he comes near to Me a handspan, I come near to him the distance of a cubit.

If he comes near to Me the distance of a cubit, I come near to him the distance of two outspread arms. If he comes to Me walking, I come to him running.”      

When he makes efforts to grow up and be more independent, he reminds her to be proactive and keep making her best despite the difficulties and obstacles.

Thus, step by step, we will succeed. And in our journey, in order to stay optimistic, try to be better today than yesterday without competing with others. It’s crucial to be surrounded by positive people who remind us of the essentials and motivate us. To encourage each other means, first of all, to adopt a positive speech and value our actions even the little ones.

Each his starting point, each his way, each his goal. Let’s make efforts and never give up!

“Human can have only that for which they make effort” Surah 54 Verse 39

“Make things easy for the people and do not make things difficult for them.” (Reported by Al Bukhari)

When he says “No”,  he reminds her that she has the choice to accept or not, to follow or not, to be present or not on the right way with positive thinkings and positive actions.

“And spend in the way of Allah and do not throw yourselves with your own hands into destruction by refraining. And do good; indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” Surah 2 Verse 195

By saying “No”, we protect our body, our heart, our mind from harmful things.

By saying “No”, we are free and responsible about what we hear, what we say, what we do.

By saying “No”, we respect our balance by being aware of our emotions and so our special needs. And our first special need is to have a serene heart through a positive mindset. Isn’t it?

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
