When your main concern becomes the Akhirah, earning the Pleasure of Allah then the worldly competitions,prizes, awards, medals,appreciations, acknowledgments won’t matter. You get it or you don’t, it is all the same.
Aim high. Set high goals and strive hard to achieve them. Noble intentions make it easy,you get reward and you get the Help of Allah. In sha Allah!
May Allah make the Akhirah our main concern. Ameen
