Determination is the Key to Success

In the Name of God; We Start:

  • Everything in life that is worth getting is worth fighting for.
  • Success is often reaped by those who are brave enough to seek it, and is rarely achieved by those who fear the results.
  • Success does not end, and failure is not the end.
  • I always like it when people tell me, “you cannot do it,” because it gives me extra reason to work harder to prove them wrong.
  • Big ideas come to great minds, while everyone experiences great work.
  • Obstacles are the challenges that you face when you are sidetracked from pursuing your goal.
  • It takes a strong fish to swim against the current. Even a dead one can float with it.
  • You will not be able to find the time to do anything, unless you create your own time.
  • Delete failure from your list of options.
  • When you see a successful work, know that behind it a brave step was taken.
  • The road to success is up hill.
  • To succeed, you have to go the extra mile.
  • The true measurement of success is to compare what you do to what you can do.
  • The way we see an event is sometimes more significant than the event itself.
  • War is easy for those who watch.
  • Success is to achieve what you desire, while happiness is to desire what you achieve.
  • To succeed, you have to first develop passion for what you do.
  • Never give up under any circumstances.
  • Our best success stories follow our worst failures.
  • Determination is the key to success.

I wish you all the happiness always …

Happy Events

One morning

Promises of joy dance in the horizon

The fruits are harvested after all these years

By those who deserve them

Today, smiles are drawn on the lips

Today, our efforts are rewarded by promotions

And our patience is met by glory

Glory that takes us towards excellence and success

It is about time we show gratitude to our management

They threw joy in our hearts

And in return we serve our dear Emirates

And make EIDA stand out among other authorities

By our efforts and collaboration, EIDA shall rise

Until work is accomplished efficiently and goals achieved

This is our way to show gratitude

To Their Highness Khalifa, Muhammad, and Saif

God bless them and bless UAE’s people

And bless this promotion for the employees

Respecting Others’ Opinions

It is sadly true that most of us cannot accept others’ opinions. Many of us have yet to embrace such civilized attitude of respecting the opinion of other people. We strictly cling to our opinion while holding others’ opinions as being worthless merely because they are different.

My question is: “Are we, as employees, fully convinced that opinions may differ?” I will not exaggerate by trying to embrace the saying “I might not agree with you, but I am ready to die so that you may express your opinion”. My aim in the very least is aiming to embrace the saying that “Disagreement does not yield resentment”!

Accepting and respecting other people’s opinions without spite or bitterness is a key component of civility. Such attitude should be fostered in us from an early age and embraced in dealing with all employees. It is not a spontaneous attitude that can be acquired in a day or two, but rather an attitude that is expected to develop as we grow up. There are scientific techniques to nurture and consolidate such practice that we are in dire need of.

We need to convince all employees to accept others’ opinions without any sense of resentment or defensiveness. We need to overcome any prejudice or stereotypical barriers, and to differentiate between d with disagreeing with the opinion of another person and personal grudge. We also need to define the line between disharmony of ideas and disharmony of personalities.

We need all the above in order to form a sound public opinion for all our issues. Through such public opinion, solutions and ideas are born that can address all matters, however big or small they are, in this authority. They also help us reach the authority’s desired goal and achieve its strategy in a successful manner.

Last Call

In his distinguished daily column “Sabahul Kheir”, Ibn Al Deera on Thursday, June 2, 2011 wrote a significant article about ID card titled “Last Call” in which he extended a fresh call to every individual to register and get an ID card.

Due to the importance of the article, the Emirates Identity Authority’s website is republishing it in full for the benefit of everybody.

Below is the article:

The ID card is in itself and as part of the population register system a great step that found its way to success, thanks to the co-operation of the competent authorities and individuals. Yet, there is still a lot to do in this connection before the objective is fully or almost fully fulfilled.

Thanks to the current sovereign and government support for handling the demographic problem, the launch of new strategies for comprehensive  development and the UAE investment program, bolstering the idea of ID card in the full sense of the word is a national and moral duty.

We are a short period away from the end of the grace period given to nationals to register for ID cards before fines will be actually imposed. Most residents are waiting to register in the ID card program whenever they wish to renew their residence. This kind of delay is not positive. What is positive is to take the initiative and proceed with registration due to the fact that obtaining an ID card is extremely beneficial and leads to more security, safety and stability for individuals and the society as a whole.

The ID card, which contributes to holding the demographic problem under control, helps to a great extent in the planning process and in bringing crime raters to a minimum, not to mention the services provided through the ID card through the foreseeable future.

This is a fresh call to register and get an ID card. Those who have not registered yet are requested to hurry up. The Emirates Identity Authority has given our society, both nationals and residents, many opportunities and grace periods but a firm decision must ultimately be taken. Tomorrow or after tomorrow, those who have not registered for ID cards yet will feel that their life is actually in chains. So, are there any respondents to my appeal?
