By right, she should be pleased that her life was spared. However, honestly, at that time she had no clue whether to feel joyous or miserable.
For one whole year, Zai dreadfully lived her life with no direction. She had the victim-mindset as she recollected those moments. She took almost one year to recuperate and get back on her feet again. She knew she was meant for greater things and setbacks like these should not stop her from fulfilling her dreams.
“It is up to you to be a victim or victorious. You may have a physical disability but you are still gifted with a sound mind and a strong, loving heart to take action. Give thanks for life, help yourself and move on to help others.”
An event is just an event. Feedbacks or setbacks are not equal to failure. Life rolls on and life is too beautiful and has a lot to offer. A setback is a gear change, a brake to take a break from the norm, from the routine. A moment to stop and smell the roses. A moment to take flight and with an eagle’s view to relook life, to redesign, rewrite what your purpose, what you truly stand for, and where you are headed to.
Magic happens with heart and action. Zai learnt this through trial and error and has discovered that service to mankind is the way to go. That was the same moment she bore the idea to create a ‘Heart N Action’ Foundation, starting with mini-projects, with the intention to empower, educate & enrich one and all.
In 2007, Zai spotted a demand for fashionable hijab (veil) for Muslim women and formed ‘Miztiq Hijab BoutiQue’ through Facebook marketing which later included men and children apparel so she re-branded it ‘Miztiq Shoppe’.
In 2012 she had a calling to pursue her Arabic studies and travelled for 2 years, and upon her return, she crafted a ‘read.write.speak’ Arabic program, which she taught at Singapore Management University.
In 2014, she discovered many insightful business and self-discovery lessons coupled with the aid of government support to assist budding entrepreneurs, and for present small-medium enterprise to grow their businesses. She decided to put together the lessons acquired and with her 14-years of entrepreneurial journey within and outside of the nation to share with the strong-hearted what they can achieve through her experiences. They can safely avoid the hard-knocks and swiftly and strategically pursue their passion and turn them to profit almost immediately with little or no money.
I am a woman in the process. I am just trying to be like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience and learn from it. Life is never dull. – Oprah Winfrey
With the same alignment, the objective of the first book, ‘Turn Your Passion to Profits’ is to spread the message of love, peace and freedom. We acknowledge the fact that woman should understand their roles and responsibilities drawn upon them. And we focus that woman do not have to do what they are forced or succumbed to. They have the choice to abide to it with faith and love.
Despite having been through an almost fatal accident that could have lead me to paralysis, life rolls on. Having picked the self-up and now having established several businesses, I am set to empower, educate and enrich woman and girls from all walks of life.
“Life is too beautiful for you to depend on anyone to make you happy!
Choice is yours. Life is short. Live it to the fullest!”
