Assalam o Alaikum (Peace be on you). I’m Ahmed Faraz Khan and I hope that you’re doing well. Thank you for taking your time to know a bit about me and my work.
I have been passionate about self-help or personal development for more than 15 years. The first self-help book I read as a teenager was “7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens”. It spoke to me and since then I’ve been hooked to self improvement.
Over the years I have delivered trainings on self-help topics and worked as a life coach. In recent years, I’ve found writing to be my calling and decided to gradually transition to becoming a self-help blogger as well as a content creator on YouTube.
As of now, I’m not coaching one on one, as I realized I could help more people in less amount of time through creating content digitally.
I bring my years of experience in the field of self-help to my guides, articles, and videos, as I try to put as much practical value in the content as possible.
My purpose with this blog is to produce genuinely helpful content, that will, at times, coach and guide you through the topic you’re reading about, unlike a lot of the articles on the internet providing shallow content written by hired writers with the sole purpose of ranking on google, not to help people in need.
Sometimes it would take me weeks or even months to write an in-depth guide, as I gather my experiences and reflections, as well as studying the topic in-depth and gain wisdom from other experts.
Other than writing, I am an artist by nature. You’ll find some glimpses of my artistic side in my illustrative/animated videos on YouTube.
Reflection and observation on life and human behavior is one of my favorite hobbies. It is where I love to spend a good chunk of my time. When I’m not reflecting, you’ll either find me writing, reading, sketching, making digital paintings, working out, learning some new skill, working on some new project that nobody knows about, or just watching some lame reaction videos on YouTube.
Fun Fact: I often keep my phone off much of the time. I don’t like using social media, unless it’s for work purposes (if any), and a simple seasoned chicken steak with plain white rice is one of my favorite comfort foods that I love to eat most of the days.
My primary motivation for my work lies in the time when I was soul-searching and I couldn’t find anyone who would guide or mentor me. Hence it took me a long time figure things out, with hundreds upon hundreds of trials and errors over the years.
My journey began around 2010 when a day came that I started to ask bigger questions of life. For several years I was consumed by this “soul-searching” journey. I tried different fields of study and different universities and institutions, but eventually ended up leaving my academic studies as that didn’t seem to serve much benefit in my journey and purpose.
Instead of following the conventional and traditional paths I decided to craft my own route. I took charge of myself and resorted to self-education which turned out to be a better choice in the long run for me personally. Even though initially I faced a lot of resistance and adversities but I had faith in God. I chose to be true to my inner calling even though apparently I lost everything. Faith was what kept me going.
This was the process of not only my intellectual but spiritual reformation as well. In fact, spirituality was where it all started from. I started to realize the real value and deeper essence of life in comparison to the superficial bling of the world.
I sought many people for answers to life but was never fully satisfied, until after several years of endless seeking I realized that the answer lies within and with God. I started to study Qur’an and that became a beacon of light for me. Everything started to settle down and become very clear. All questions were answered. That is the reason my content is sprinkled with references from The Quran and the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
As time went on, I grew more and more interest in human psychology and mind sciences. I was always curious about the limitless possibilities God has put in the human mind. I got into academic Psychology, Neuro-Linguistic-Programming (NLP), Hypnosis, and Life Coaching.
As for OnlineLifeGuide.com, I intend to make it beneficial for anyone who has a desire to grow and become a better version of themselves, regardless of race, religion, or nationality.
Whoever and wherever you are, I hope you’ll find value in it. Just have a curious mind and an open heart.
I deeply believe in preaching with my life, not just with my lips. Most of the things I talk about come from my own real experiences, challenges, and struggles, and from the experiences I had helping my clients and other people overcome life’s challenges and become a better version of themselves.
My own share of struggles and challenges have enabled me to relate and connect with other people on a deeper level and hence provide appropriate solutions.
All praise be to God. I ask Him to take His work from me. Any benefit that someone receives through me is originally from Allah, alone. I ask Allah to keep increasing any good that He has put in my work, minimize my errors, flaws and mistakes, and allow me to serve Him and my fellow humans till my last breath.
I wish and intend the best for you, and I hope I become a source for adding good value and quality to your life in some way, shape or form. God Bless.
