Abdullah Asim whispers secrets of succeeding as a “tween-ager”
Being quarantined for so long really makes us feel sluggish and our lives dull. Let’s break this charm of monotony and find out something dynamic yet powerful. In this article, using Abdullah Asim’s story, we will explore what it takes to be a successful person in our “tween-age”. Yes, you have read it right – the twenties – mark the figure.
Who is Abdullah Asim?
Abdullah Asim is a young lad, a well-known social media marketer, and the cofounder of Coboot Media, a digital marketing agency. The boy succeeded, and by success, it means earning a handsome amount of money, owning a Honda City, and courage to pursue bold dreams. How?
What was Normal?
Born in a resource-less remote area of Southern Punjab AKA Bahawalpur, the boy grew up just like any other common child. Everything went normal like he cried when he was born & sucked his thumb for quite a time.
Things diverted from the normal track when he was studying in the 8th grade.
The internet was rising in the locality, and it fascinated our boy just like any other common fellow. Normal? Yes.
What was not Normal?
While commoners were using the internet to find Ben Tennyson games, install VPN (and watch YouTube because it was banned back then in Pakistan) and “creating a new account” on Facebook. Our boy came to identify an equally exciting revelation. Normal? NO!
The revelation was that he could make money out of the same internet. WOW! This was where life started taking a “U-Turn” for better.
What was even Crazy?
The boy struggled his way out and kept following the internet path when everybody used to mock him. Even his family taunted him by saying that “tis a child’s madness”. Normal? Yes. Most of us complain about being not understood by our families.
But he didn’t give up! He kept listening and spinning all the chatter into his motivational matter. Whenever someone laughed at him, he internalized it as a pat on his back. Whenever someone mocked him, he felt as if they were saying, “Hey, yes, you CAN do it”. Normal? No? Crazy? Yes!!!
This slight paradigm shift enabled him to grow exponentially into a “successful” “tween-ager”.
Today we know him as one of the best social media marketers among the country. A ready-to-go option for celebrities & brands who want to level up their social media game.
Plus, he has co-founded a digital marketing agency AKA Coboot Media. Coboot provides a complete solution for developing, designing, and growing your business ONLINE. He plays his role by working as a social media marketer.
Do you want to be the next?
Do you think you have got what it takes to be the next Abdullah Asim? Easier said than done!
Fortunately, you can follow the approach given below & maximize your odds of becoming the next Abdullah in your field.
1: Remove the old lens – Don’t be TYPICAL
Recall the changing part of the story. He didn’t use social media the way commoners were using it. He thought of it as an uncommon way that helped him change his life.
Always be mindful of that:
“Life is 10 percent what happens to you,
And 90 percent of how you respond to it.”
2: Surround yourself with Believers
Things would not have been the same if Abdullah were occupied with naysayers every time. He had believers, too. Society ain’t that cruel bro.
There is an Arabic proverb,
“The companion pulls”.
The second important part is to find believers in your life who believe in you, your mindset and your goals.
3: Have faith – Be persistent
Last but definitely not the least, the most important ingredient of the success-smoothie is faith. Why?
Almighty said in the Holy Quran,
“And that the man will not get but what he endeavors.” Chapter 53, Verse 39.
Things do not change overnight. Though human beings always want this to happen to owe to the built-in laziness. But the actual world demands more than just dreaming and planning.
It demands consistency and that my dear would never appear without faith. Therefore, if you want to take something away from Abdullah Asim, take away the principles of Unconventional thinking, sympathetic company, and unshaken FAITH.
