I’ve never had a baby while having covid.
I’ve never been a mom to 3 kids.
I’ve never been in social isolation.
I’ve never had to feed, pump, feed (tripel feed).
I've never had to stretch my baby's wounds.
 
This episode is on productivity.
 
The challenges that I am facing to overcome the brain barriers to living an intentional life.
 
Money is 20% knowledge and 80% mindset.
 
Achieving the right mindset is truly being wealthy.
Acquiring the right mindset is continuous work.
 
Our brains like to be efficient (lazy), seek pleasure, and avoid pain.
 
I re-started my journey on productivity by reading "The Productive Muslim" by Mohammad Faris.
 
This book is full of gems, I'll share more words of wisdom in later episodes.

The secrets to wealth are simple and they have not changed.

One of my favorite books is “The Richest Man in Babylon.”

It offers cures to poverty: 

  • Start thy purse to fattening
  • Control thy expenditures
  • Make thy gold multiply
  • Guard thy treasure from loss
  • Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment
  • Insure a future income
  • Increase thy ability to earn

Let's discuss what meaning they hold in today's economy.

In this very special episode, Uzma Jafri and Zaiba Hasan, hosts of the "Mommying while Muslim" podcast, join to talk about the giving circle. 
 
This model is very similar to the vision I have of a charity organization:

Ep #64: Let Adults be…

Ep #64: Let Adults be…

November 27, 2020

We usually carry around an instruction book for how the world should behave so we can feel better.⁣

Instruction manuals for ourselves and for other people around us. ⁣

-My husband should come home on time. ⁣
-He should take the trash out. ⁣

And when the other person does not follow our manual or doesn't do it right, then we are distraught. ⁣

We go back to emotional childhood where we are blaming and depending on others for our emotions. ⁣

The worst is when we have manuals for ourselves and then beat ourselves up for not living up to our expectations. ⁣

How can you take full responsibility for your life and take all the power back? Tune into this episode. ⁣

p.s. I will be taking a little maternity break to heal, connect with my family for the next 3-4 months. ⁣

p.p.s what goals did you set for 2019 and how much were you able to accomplish? I also discussed a few of my financial goals and how 2020 has been a special year full of challenges. ⁣

p.p.p.s. Please don't forget to subscribe, rate, and share the podcast. ⁣

Ep #63: Don’t leave..

Ep #63: Don’t leave..

November 20, 2020

At times, we are in a rush to leave a situation to make things better for ourselves. 

  • Leave an unhappy marriage to find the next prince charming.
  • Leave a job, due to a "bad" boss.
  • Move to a new location to find happiness. 

When we do things in a rush and desperation, we are making decisions from a negative place without really exploring what is making us unhappy. 

Most of the time we end up in a similar situation again. 

Why? Because the external world is not responsible for how we feel. We end up giving too much power to the external world. 

To get our life back:

We need to learn to manage our emotions internally. Make our decision from a place of responsibility, because only we are responsible for how we feel. 

(Disclaimer: NOT speaking about abusive marriages. If you or someone you know is in an abusive marriage, please seek a professional therapist.)

Ep #62: Don’t Criticize

Ep #62: Don’t Criticize

November 13, 2020

We are speaking about creating healthy relationships this month.

Relationships are one of the greatest assets we have. We want a healthy relationship to help achieve our goals, and to avoid big financial setbacks including a divorce.

Relationships are our thoughts about someone. They are not dependent on how one behaves. This is the secret to the universe.

You can improve your relationship with someone by having great thoughts about them.

When we start to complain and criticize, people become defensive.

I hope you enjoy this episode, do let me know what you think.
