KETIKA MEMAAFKAN, KITA MENANG OLEH NAQOY

Orang-orang sukses selalu pandai memaafkan, yah baik memaafkan orang lain maupun memaafkan dirinya sendiri, berikut adalah gambaran hebatnya memaafkan , Adapun kemenangan yang didapatkan dengan memaafkan sebagaimana ditulis dalam buku The7Awareness dan diperkuat dalam buku 21 Days tobe Transhuman adalah sebagai berikut :

1.      Kemenangan dalam rezeki, bagi siapa saja yang mudah memaafkan tentu saja pipa-pia rezeki akan dibuka sangat lebar sehingga  banyak rezeki dari yang tiada disangka-sangka. Bicara rezeki sebenarnya bicara tentang energi, jika senantiasa energi negative yang dipantulkan maka akan membuat kita mudah lelah dan frustasi dalam mencari rezeki yang halal sehingga menghalalkan berbagai cara untuk sukses, cara-cara maksiatpun menjadi lumrah baginya, baginya dosa hanya sebatas ukuran di dunia, rasa takutnya akan dosa hilang dan diganti dengan rasa percaya diri yang terlalu sombong. Baginya rezeki itu tergantung kerja kerasnya bukan karena keridhoan dari Allah. Mereka terhipnotis oleh dunia modern yang menjadikanya budak dari kemodernan. Pertanyaaan sederhananya adalah jika rezeki tergantung kerja keras, maka mereka yang bekerja di bangunan bahkan sampai lembur harusnya lebih kaya dibandingkan mereka yang duduk di kursi-kursi kantor. Kenyataanya rezeki itu adalah rahasia ilahi, kita bekerja sebagai rasa syukur kepada Allah dan sebagai jalan untuk mendapatkan rezeki tersebut, urusan besar kecilnya rezeki tentu saja ada takaranya masing-masing, kecukupan sebuah rezeki justru terasa ketika kita bisa bersyukur dalam kehidupan ini.
2.      Kemenangan dalam hati, tentu saja hati yang menang akan lebih baahagia dibandingkan hati yang kalah, mereka yang memiliki hati yang menang dari belenggu adalah ketika bisa memaafkan dan mudah meminta maaf. Bagaikan ruang kamar yang sesak dan penuh oleh barang-barang yang tidak terpakai namun tetap disimpan di lemari dan rak, memaafkan itu bagaikan membuang satu persatu barang-barang bekas anda sehingga ruangan lebih longgar dan lebih sehat, tentu saja lebih rapih dan indah dibandingkan sebelumnya. Keindahan dalam hati akan terpancar kepada keindahan fisik bagi kita, boleh saja wajah kita tidak terlalu tampan atau cantik, boleh saja kulit kita hitam jika dalam hati memiliki keindahan maka akan berdampak tidak membosankan dan menarik.
3.      Kemenangan dalam bertindak. Banyak orang yang sulit bergerak, melangkah dan bertindak bukan karena adanya larangan dan batasan dari orang lain atau sesuatu dari luar dirinya namun justru ada penghambat diri yang membuatnya sulit melangkah. Penghambat diri yang menjadi belenggu bagi dirinya sehingga beratnya melangkah dan bertindak. Dalam buku The7Awareness dijelaskan mereka adalah manusia dalam kerangkeng, manusia yang diluar dirinya tidak ada yang mengekangnya untuk berhasil namun jiwanya terikat oleh ketidakberdayaan dimasa lalu. Trauma dari satu kejadian ke kejadian buruk berikutnya terus menjadi sisi gelap yang dirinya miliki, sebuah kebahagiaan tentu saja jika kita memiliki kemenangan dalam bertindak, menentukan jalan mana yang akan kita tempuh untuk sukses diatas rata-rata.
4.      Kemenangan dalam bersosialisasi dengan masyarakat. Banyak orang yang mengalami kemunduran di era modern ini, yang dekat terasa semakin jauh dan jauh akan semakin terasa dekat dengan dunia teknologi (maya), kita sering menyaksikan satu keluarga yang sedang duduk di ruang tamu namun mereka masing-masing sedang asyik gadget (hp) sehingga kurang merasakan nikmatnya suasana tersebut. Dunia Zaman Now membuat banyak orang ramah kepada nitizen namun rapuh dalam bertetangga, bahkan bisa jadi menyapa tetangga dalam sehari bisa tidak dilakukan sama sekali.

Kemenangan hati bagi siapa saja yang memaafkan, jika hati sudah bisa memaafkan maka dunia akan terasa mendukung dirinya, sementara jika hati susah memaafkan maka dunia seolah-olah tidak memihak dirinya. Keterasingan dan ketidakberdayaan melekat pada dirinya, nasib sial menjadi baying-bayang nyata hidupnya seolah-olah dirinya hidup dimasa lalu, masa sekarang yang penuh kebaikan, kesenangan dan keberkahan sama sekali tidak terasa ketika yang ada adalah kebencian dan sakit hati. Manusia diatas rata-rata memiliki komitmen untuk menjaga dirinya agar selalu bahagia, sukses, penuh cinta dan kasih dengan melakukan afirmasi harian seperti ini:
“Terima kasih Ya Allah, Ya Tuhan saya  dimaafkan orang tua
Terima kasih Ya Allah, Ya Tuhan  saya bisa memaafkan orang yang mendziolimi saya
Terima kasih Ya Allah, Ya Tuhan saya layak sukses dunia akhirat
Terima kasih Ya Allah, Ya Tuhan saya tenang dan penuh energi
Terima kasih Ya Allah, impian saya pasti”
Terima kasih Ya Allah saya berjiwa besar
“Terima kasih Ya Allah atas segala-galanya”

2 RESIKO MENJADI PENGUSAHA SUKSES




2 RESIKO KETIKA ANDA MENJADI PENGUSAHA
Oleh : NAQOY

Tak terbayangkan oleh saya akan mendapatkan penghargaan sebagai santri of the year 2017 bulan Oktober lalu, terlebih katagori yang dilombakan adalah kewirausahaan (Entrepreneur), saya percaya bahwa setiap orang adalah bisa menjual, hanya tinggal apakah menjual barang orang lain atau miliknya, setiap hari bahkan tanpa disadari kita mempromosikan sebuah warung yang enak, tempat liburan yang bagus, makanan yang nikmat, mall baru yang luas, tempat sekolah anak-anak yang terbaik dan masih banyak lagi sehingga orang yang kita ajak bicara akhirnya setuju dan percaya apa yang kita bicarakan, itu bagianpenting dari bakat seorang entrepreneur. Bagi seorang entreprenur ketika melihat ada kesempatan maka cara berpikirnya adalah "bisa ga yah saya jualin, saya tawarin".

Dalam buku yang sedang saya tulis "GREAT ENTREPRENEUR, CHANGE YOUR LIFE" dituliskan ada 2 resiko ketika anda memilih menjadi wirausaha. Apa itu 2 resiko itu, pertama adalah DITOLAK, semakin banyak orang yang menolak anda itu artinya anda sudah bekerja, anda sudah menunjukan identitas anda walau kekuatan mempengaruhi orang lain masih dianggap minus, hanya saja ini adalah sejarah anda untuk memasuki resiko yang kedua. Resiko yang terakhir adalah KAYA. Jika semakin banyak anda presentasi dan menjelaskan tentang nilai-nilai mulia anda dan banyak orang bergabung dan ikut membangun masa depan yang hebat tentu saja resiko kedua tidak bisa anda hindari yaitu KAYA.

Persoalanya adalah jika ada orang yang ingin kaya namun malu dan malas menerobos rasa nyamanya, tentu saja hanya berakhir dalam angan-anagan besar untuk sukses dan kaya.

RAHASIA SUKSES BISNIS KULINER BERSAMA NAQOY








Bisnis Kuliner
Oleh : NAQOY

Pada dasarnya prinsip bisnis kuliner hampir sama saja, hanya saja ada modifikasi di beberapa bagian yang dilakukan oleh masing-masing pengelola bisnis kuliner. Saya sendiri bersama istri sudah beberapa kali membuka bisnis kuliner dan jawabanya adalah gagal. Mengelola bisnis kuliener paling utama adalah mitra usaha kita, ada seseorang pernah bilang kepada saya bahwa mencari mitra bisnis ternyata lebih susah daripada mencari pasangan. Jika kita sudah punya mitra bisnis yang tepat langkah berikutnya adalah bagaimana kita bisa mengendalikan 3 pintu utama bisnis yaitu :

1. Keuangan
2. Marketing
3. SDM

Jika ketiganya bisa dikendalikan dengan baik tentu saja bisnis akan mudah dijalankan, selamat mencoba yah sahabat NAQOY. Love hamesya.

This novel is inspired by the writer’s true life events when he found the “One Minute Awareness”. A motivational novel that led him to give an enlightenment speech to as many as 18,000 audiences in the Senayan Sports Hall, Jakarta, in September 2009, so far recorded in Indonesian history as the biggest gathering in a motivational training. All the main characters mentioned in the story are the ones who have made the writer to become an inborn inspiring and motivational speaker.  
For my father who is called, “Bapak”, who gave me inspiration to create this book.
For my mother who is called, “Emak”, who always prays for me to be a successful person.
For my beloved wife, Dewi Umronih Yusuf, who changed everything from ordinary into extra ordinary.
For my twin kids, Zaara and Zyvaa, who have become the most wonderful gift from God to me.
For Zeliyaa, my third daughter, who has given me a refreshing spirit to finish this book.

Greetings of the 7Awareness from Indonesia

My greatest gratitude expression and blessed feelings is forwarded only to the Almighty Allah who has bestowed me His Blessing in the art of writing continuously, that I have the feeling of a tranquil and peaceful world when I enter it with full of ideas and thoughts.

Your beauty is everlasting and your moral support has changed me drastically not only to become good but also to become great.  For my twin daughters, Zaara and Zyvaa, who are my greatest bounties from Allah, and my youngest daughter, Zeliyaa,   which means: SPIRIT, her birth on November 16, 2012, has become a turning point for the birth of this book.

BETWEEN SENAYAN SPORTS HALL AND LOSARI, BREBES, CENTRAL JAVA

Senayan Sports Hall (Istora Senayan), September 26-27, 2009
The seminar stage which had the size of 30x10 meters seemed to be a huge one for me. It was built by BSI (Bina Sarana Informatika), a private educational institution that has many branches nationwide. “That is the stage where I am going to deliver my motivational speech”, as I mumbled to myself. I sat at the back waiting for the master of ceremony to invite me to come to the stage. It was the time for me, the moment of truth, to speak in front of 18,000 audiences that broke the world record, according to MURI (Indonesia’s Museum Center for Record Breaking), back in September 2009.  As long as nobody in the world claimed a bigger number of audience in a single gathering of motivational training, this was, and will always be, the greatest gathering of motivational training ever held.   

I sat silently and was speechless. Suddenly tears fell on my cheek as I remembered the moment I left my hometown in Kalibuntu, Losari, Brebes, Central Java, leaving my ailing wife who had been resting for one week. The doctor told me of an unknown origin of her illness. I kept on confirming myself that everything would be OK and these 18,000 students in Jakarta needed to be enlightened and in return God will heal my wife as I only had a sincere and earnest intention to these students.   Suddenly I heard the voice, ”Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, the youngest motivational speaker, the author of best selling motivational books nationwide, Nanang Qosim Yusuf!”. Loud applauses were thundered through the sports hall and echoed everywhere.

Flanked by four escorts I walked past the audience, with full of confidence.   Never in my whole life have I given a talk to more than 10,000 people in a single occasion. These new and fresh college students would listen to the best content of the 7Awareness program from me, which is the drive to get out of the comfort zone.      

I believe that everyone will be reluctant to jump out of his or her cozy comfort zone. Only when a person finds himself his own One Minute Awareness (OMA), he or she will believe that not a single minute is to be wasted for leisure. The twenty four hour given to us for a day seems to be insufficient. There will never be enough time to do good things and to develop the legacy of good deeds. These were the messages I conveyed to the 18,000 audiences who attended the two-day seminar, September 26-27, 2009, from 7am to 5pm.

As soon as the seminar ended, Mr. Jaya Suprana, the founder of MURI (Indonesia’s Museum Center for Record Breaking), conferred me the certificate stating that I have made the Indonesian record for becoming a public speaker to the biggest number of audience.  As I finished giving my motivational speech, I hurried directly to Kalibuntu, Losari, Brebes, Central Java, to meet my family, especially my ill wife. On the way to my hometown, a message buzzed, “Brother, thanks to Allah that your wife is now recovering’. I suddenly burst into tears, as another message buzzed,” Brother, your wife has now started to recognize everyone, including mom and dad!”  Another message buzzed, “Your wife wants to meet you”. Therefore spontaneously I replied,” Don’t worry; I am on my way home. Thanks Allah for this miracle!”

I read the message slowly, letter by letter. It was such a mixture of feelings that I had to endure at that moment. As I recalled it, I remembered it was sent by my younger brother, Hambali, who is ten years younger than I am. I was 29 years old at the time. I directly replied to him, “Please be patient, I am on my way home, thank Allah everything is OK”.

I really wanted to go home first to my home in Serpong, South Tangerang, but due to the urgency that I faced the only thing I had to do was to go home to Kalibuntu, Losari, Brebes, Central Java.
On the way to arrive at my hometown I recalled all that has happened in the past. In my 7Awareness book I wrote, ”we cannot change the past but we can learn from it”. My past is not attached as an accessory to my outer heart (my shadr), but it is truly engrossed deep inside my inner soul (my lubb).
 
****


Who  am I?

I am the first son in the family, and I have two younger brothers. My first brother’s name is Halimi Yusuf and my second brother’s name is Hambali Arief Yusuf. Our family’s name ends with Yusuf. People might think that our father’s name is Yusuf, but actually it is the combination of my father’s name and my mother’s name. Theirs are Sufyan and Siti Daryunah. When combined, it will become Yusuf. It starts with my mother’s name, as I recall Prophet Muhammad said that as Muslims we have to honor our mother three times higher than our father.

Previously before I had the last name Yusuf, people would call me, Nanang. It means a boy in Javanese language. When I was a little child I got sick easily, so my neighbors suggested an idea to my mother to conduct a peculiar method in the village to cure a little child illnesses: to bare the kid in the open air under the bright sunny day on a bamboo pan, so that neighbors would come and watch the kid with amazement.  It is hoped that by doing this act all relatives and neighbors will pray for the well being of the sick child.  

It really worked. All neighbors came to meet me and they all watched me with amazement. There was an old lady with the name Nyai Sadiyah who came and saw me, and she said that I was a really good looking boy and I will become a successful person in the future.  She even asked my mother to take me into her custody. “Since he is a boy he should be called: Nanang, which means a he is a young boy. He will become a successful person, more famous and prosperous than my descendants. “

My mother shed her tears when she heard this. That was really a moment she cannot forget, and that is why I heard about this story from her regarding my name’s background when she believed that I was mature enough to understand it.
When I reached the age of seven years old, my father enrolled me into the government primary school in Karang Tengah, Losari, Brebes, Central Java.  My father dropped me at the school’s gate and he told me to stay here while he would wait. “Don’t be scared as a young man, there is nothing to fear. I may not be able to read, but I want you to be the smartest boy, son”, said he confidently.

I kept on crying as I did not want my father to leave me alone at school.  However he keeps on asking me to be a strong and a brave boy so that I will not face the same fate like what he has become now, a pedicab driver.  My father’s words seemed to be like passwords for me to fight against my fear. The spirit to fight against meeting total strangers has become my inner strength ever since my father told me not to be scared. His words seemed to be my biggest boost as I grew bigger, that I am supposed to fear nobody but Allah.

Let me tell you a little bit about my father. He is a farmer who farmed on somebody else’s farmland. After plowing the rice field, he went on working as a pedicab driver in the city.  Definitely his income is far from sufficient to support his family. However, we never complained about the sufferings that we had to undergo under such conditions. The whole thing came for a reason. I may have a poor father, but I believe that the fate of everyone’s life is not inherited. Therefore, I believe that my fate can be changed, too.  

When I was a little boy, my father used to take me to spend the night in the makeshift hut in the middle of the rice field. It was located near the railway station. We could wait until midnight as the train passed by and watched the speedy glow of the light that the train brought. It was an unforgettable moment for me as the coldness of the shivering night caught us in the middle of the rice field. While we were watching the train passed accompanied by the thundering noise of the train’s engine, my father told me silently, “Son, as you grow I want you to be as fast as that train. Go forward with the lightning speed and forget about everything behind you!” My tears dropped as my father hugged me strongly while we were watching the speedy train passed in front of us.   

I asked my father whether Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, is as bright and luxurious as told by my friends. My father said that Jakarta is bright and luxurious, but he told me to work hard to be able to live in the capital city.  He was only a bicycle rider in the old town area of Jakarta, who tried to find passengers who needed his service.   It was far from sufficient what he earned every night, but that was what he did when he stayed in the city.

As the morning dawn approached, we went into the nearby mosque which was quite far from our hut. We had to do the Morning Prayer (Subuh), and it has always been a wise advice from my parents not to abandon the compulsory prayers regardless of the situation. Even when we are sick, we also have to perform the prayers.
“If you want to be a successful person, never abandon our daily prayers,” said my mother to me one day. "As your parents we may be uneducated and illiterate, but we want you to grow up as educated as possible.
