Have you ever wanted to achieve a goal, but didn’t know where to start? Do you want to improve your education or just get to work on time? Having a “worthy goal” is key vital to having success in life.
“What is the value of a worthy goal? It is your innate God potential actualized,” said Polymin Muhammad, a London counselor and the co-author of the book, How to Set Worthy Goals: An Inspirational Guide to Achieving Success. He collaborated with Final Call writer and Editor of Virtue Magazine, Audrey Muhammad, to develop a book that combines some of the best principles of motivation and guidance for goal-setting.
One young woman was inspired by the book after working on it at the printing company. “It has given me hope,” she said. “How to Set Worthy Goals: An Inspirational Guide to Achieving Success,” was the perfect push to get myself set on the right path for personal success as well as reconnect with my spiritual side. Audrey helped me to realize the potential and value that I have as a woman, an individual as well as a professional”(K. Moore- Cary, NC).
What was the inspiration for this workbook? Several years ago, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan sent out an “inspirational” video that challenged brothers and sisters to develop their faith and set goals. He asked the question “What is the problem with our “lack of productivity?” What is the problem with our lack of doing great exploits? Why haven’t we conquered the country already, after having sixty years of having the word of God in our midst? What has slowed us down? It is lack of belief in Allah! Do you know what your problem is? You don’t even have a worthy goal to strive after?” In the video, he gave us an assignment to close our eyes, visualize a goal and then claim it. The book has an inspirational section for achieving spiritual, health, family and financial/economic goals.
God says, “Be! And it is!” Do you know there is power and energy in the words that we speak? In the beginning was what? “The Word” and the word was God and the word was with God. The words we think are part of the power that channels our actions to get something accomplished. Therefore, are we speaking words of life, light, and power? OR are we just thinking about and talking about what we don’t have? If we change the words we think, we will change the WAY we live our life. Remember, our “Father” is a “Creator.” We are meant to believe, conceive and achieve what we create in our minds to be of service to humanity. We are creators…we are destined to create.
“There is no better feeling that exists than when you achieve a worthy goal,” said Brother Polymin. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, black or white, everyone wants to achieve and accomplish something, but we just need to know how or what practical steps to help facilitate achievement. Here is what Dr. Ava Muhammad said about the publication: “In reference to the book, How to Set Worthy Goals, this is translating faith into action. When we write, we activate one of the highest parts of our brain. We are thereby motivated to bring our ideas into reality. Get this book!” -Dr. Ava Muhammad(Oct. 4, 2014)
What is wonderful about the book is that it immediately encourages you to get to work with exercises in practical applications such as “developing a vision board,” or “listing qualities you want to improve in yourself.” The book also acts as a “workbook” because it has plenty of room to write down your goals and the steps to achieving the goal to help you stay on track.
Maxine Muhammad, of London’s Mosque #1, highly recommended the book via Facebook recently. She said the book was a “really good tool.” She stated, “Writing down each step to achieve my goals in this book is really helpful.”
The authors conducted a wonderful “vision planning/goal setting” workshop at London’s Mosque #1 “Live Right to Get Right” Conference and was met with an impressive response of gratitude from participants. Several participants also attended the “one on one” goal setting sessions given by the authors. “Knowledge of self must always lead to self improvement and can with the right methods,” says Polymin Muhammad. The authors are available to conduct workshops on Goal-setting for your organization, mosque or church.
