Qn. no. 1 :- Do we really need Self Confidence ???
Qn. no. 2 :- Do we really have to make ourselves believe that we can accomplish anything ???
Qn. no. 3 :- Why do we have to lie to ourselves to increase our self confidence ???
Let's study reality for a second. Consider the example of turning ON a light bulb. We switch it ON and the light bulb immediately glows. We think that WE turned the Light Bulb ON. That gives a lot of scope for Self Confidence. But did we really!
What exactly happens. There are millions of things happening from the moment we pressed the switch till the light bulb glows and after that. Most of things are invisible to us. So we do not know about it. Let's try to visualize what happens.
Do you know the world of electrons. There is nothing as much chaotic as that. Its so chaotic that we cannot even determine where an electron is at any given time. We only talk about chances when we talk about electrons. We say, there is high chance that an electron might be in this area or that. Contrast that with the high accuracy with which we calculate the position of planets or the moon.
Now, as soon as we turn on the switch, the electrons flow towards the light bulb. The electrons that is so out of our control. So much out of our control that we cant even know where each electron is. We cant see it too. But it flows towards the bulb. The flow towards the bulb is also not in our control. For some reason, it flows in conducting materials. We didnt make the electron do that too. Finally, when it touches the light bulb it makes it glow - emit light. Now nobody even knows what Light is today. There are lots of things that happen to make things work. Why then, do we ever think or be Self Confident in feeling that we are the ones doing everything!
Why cant we just be humble in front of all the invisible mechanisms that make the world work today and say Alhamdulillah.
So what really happens is
[ We Switch ON ] -- [ God does millions of things to make the light bulb glows ] -- [ Light bulb glows ]
So is it us who makes the Light Bulb glow or is it God ? Why cant we give thanks rather than feeling self confident.
This applies for everything else in our Life too. Next time, when we feel low or feel that we cant do a task, let's remember that we are not doing anything else too. Its God that makes things work. He is capable of making anything work and accomplishing anything. All we have to do is connect with God.
So , forget Self Confidence and Connect With God for wonders in your Life. Do what you have to do, in the Best way you can. Leave the rest to Him. Be Humble and Thank Him.
Some people even talk about their Self Confidence being crushed by others. Now, how can your self confidence be crushed when there is nothing called self confidence in the first place. Its not you who was doing it. It was God. Now can someone crush what God is doing!!!
Remember, Prophet Moosa Split a Sea using just a stick, With God's Help.
36:80 [It is] He who made for you from the green tree, fire, and then from it you ignite.
36:81 Is not He who created the heavens and the earth Able to create the likes of them? Yes, [it is so]; and He is the Knowing Creator.
36:82 His command is only when He intends a thing that He says to it, "Be," and it is.
36:83 So exalted is He in whose hand is the realm of all things, and to Him you will be returned.
