I am a Work-in-Progress

I know many people look up to me that he is great, amazing, hardworking, passionate, change-maker, and refer me to many other good things.

As I continue to reflect on the praises, I hope to continue to live up to that standard. To be aware of the praises and to not get carried away but constantly work on myself. That humans will always be humans. That praises are good but I can get better. I can be better than what I am.
I know many would also think I am a superhuman, I am not one. I have also battled with my rejections, with my failures. There were times that I had absolute confidence in my ability and I still would fail. I once went through a four-stage recruitment process last year and didn't get the role. I had absolute confidence in myself but it was still a learning moment for me, a point to be better than myself.
There were also times that I doubted myself. There were times that I don't also believe in my ability but the self-awareness to understand that it is possible. That I can represent possibilities. And that is what keeps me going and trying and not disqualifying myself for anything.
And as you read this post and thinking that I am this and I am that or he is the best. I would like to say a silent prayer and a prayer made by one of the prophet (SAW) Caliphate Abu Bakr. He used to say “O Allah, You know me better than I know myself, and I know myself better than these people who praise me. Make me better than what they think of me, and forgive those sins of mine of which they have no knowledge, and do not hold me responsible for what they say.”
