Lesson No 1: Learn to fight your fears

At the age of 21, Muniba lost her legs in an accident. This made her marriage life completely destroyed. This made her think for a moment about why she has to live anymore. But she stood up and found the motivation to live a happy life. She got rid of all her fears and learned how to fight off her weaknesses and remain strong.

Lesson No 2: Turn Adversity into Opportunity

For some people, it is hard to forget the difficult past they have gone through. Muniba, although she was disabled, she made use of her artistic talent as an opportunity to be a source of inspiration for others. She sets out a perfect example for all those people who are in a condition similar to hers.

Lesson No 3: Never show hatred to People you leave

Muniba got separated from her husband after the accident. But still, in her several interviews, she talks about how her husband had supported and remained with her through thick and thin before the accident. She had always spoken positive words of affections for her husband. No person leaves you for no reason, there is always a reason behind it.

Lesson No 4: Start loving yourself:

Staying in the wheelchair all the time could definitely take a toll on your self-esteem. A disabled person, of course, could develop a tendency to feel bad for themselves as they have to live on others’ help. But no matter what flaws you have in your outer beauty, your inner beauty should be pure and beautiful.

If you will accept yourself with all your strengths and your weaknesses intact, then no one can stop you from rising into a stronger and more confident self.

Lesson No 5: Don’t give up

Never let any sort of failure put you down; this is exactly what Muniba has taught us in a beautiful way. After the accident, Muniba was not even able to brush her teeth by herself. But she worked hard and with complete recovery, she is now able to paint again! In simple words, she is a complete inspiration.  Keep trying hard and hard and never give up – it’s all about perseverance!

Lesson No 6: Motivation for Others

Try to be a piece of motivation for others. You should be acting upon as a piece of strength for someone if they have been somehow going through the same situation as you. You should revive back the actual meaning of life in them through your example.

Lesson No 7: Inspire Others

Life is incomplete until and unless it does not have the spice of being an inspiration for others. Muniba had gone through one such phase of life where she could not even think about one single reason of surviving.

But she stood up, fought off and proved what real women power is all about. Today she is a true inspiration character for the women of not only Pakistan but the entire world.

Lesson No 8: Never Lose Hope

God might put you in the middle of difficulties and test your patience, but at the end of the day, he is the one who gives you the victory. Losing hope always takes you closer to the failure line.

You should have a belief in yourself and most importantly you should have faith in your Almighty who is always standing by your side in your good and bad times.

Lesson No 9: Smile even if you Fall

Lastly, Muniba Mazari taught us the everlasting lesson of life which is all about keeping a smile on the face no matter what comes your way. Do you know what your enemies hate? It’s of course when you are happy and smiling in your life. Give them a defeating answer with a charming smile, but never expose your sorrows and weaknesses to the world.
