Hard work, preparation way to success
BINTULU: ‘No sweat no success’, Assistant Minister of Tourism Datuk Talib Zulpilip told students.
“There is no short-cut to success and continuous efforts are needed for those who dream of becoming successful,” said the Jepak assemblyman when officiating at the closing of a motivation seminar cum solat hajat to prepare students for the coming examinations.
A total of 150 students from three secondary schools — SMK Baru, SMK Bintulu and SM Teknik — took part in the one-day event held at Masjid At-Taqwa in RPR Sebiew yesterday.
The motivation seminar was conducted by Professor Dr Mohamad Abd Majid from University of Brunei, while the solat hajat sessions by Ustaz Mohd Sufian Hassim and Ustaz Samsujunaidi Mat Deris.
Talib stressed on the important of preparedness especially before facing exams.
“There is nothing that can be done properly without enough preparation,” he said, adding that attitude to success was just as important.
Organising chairman Arshad Abang Anuar said this was an effort of RPR Village Security and Development Committee, Pejasa Bintulu branch and Masjid At-Taqwa to tell students nothing comes easy as most things need sacrifices and preparation.
“At the same time, we want to guide our young children to adhere to Islamic teaching, especially in practising ‘solat hajat’ in their daily lives,” he said.
The event aims to boost the confidence of students and tell them they were not alone as the community was ever ready to assist and support them, especially in education.
Also present were advisor Datuk Zenorai Rambli, deputy chairman Abang Norulhadi Abg Zainudin, deputy chairman 2 Abdul Kadir Rambli and secretary Jainudin Ab Rahman.
