success is, like a lot of other things, very relative. it starts with the objectifs you set for you life. and depending on who you are, you your objectifs can varie form becoming the wealthy busynesman who left morale values and religion behind him, to the fanatic terrorist bomber who is going to blow 2000 inocent civilians. it all depends on who you are ....
even the who you are part depends on a lot of variables :
the comunity you were born in
the religion you are following
the way your parents raised you
the set of rulles and laws you controle your life with
the experiences you gained trough your existance on this planet
the people you listened to and the people you liked, hated or admired
the financial athmosphere you lived in, were born in, or would like to achieve.
the heroes that you look up to
the extent of the effect of other people on your mind decisions and thoughts
and many more things that consitutes one\'s personality
the way i personnaly see it is to thrive for whatever you believe in. people\'s laws and most of the laws in the religions usually only shows the way you should treat other people and behave yourself in a general manner , seting your goals in life is the hardest part and the most important. unfortunatly many of us do not have that many choices in the direction they want their lifes to go to, back in the homeland for example where most people just deal with what they can get.
the real question is : would somebody who did not have the luxury of choosing his objectifs in live do the best he can in whatever he\'s doing ???
i do not think so, the proof is also back in morocco where a lot of people are just doing the minimum they can not loose the few things they already have.
that\'s why, i guess, they say: \" al9ana3ato kanzoune la yafna\"
but does that mean that we should just deal with whatever life throws in between our hands and stay happy with it ? if yes what kind of motivation would we have ? what would be that objectif we\'re going for ?pure exelence might be the answer , that kind of perfectness ( i dont think that\'s a word but anyway...) that comes from somebody who does his best in any situation he meets . in this exact case the rewards should not be decided by us in the first place and should not be garanteed . the only real reward that should matter to this kind of person should be the way of life he is living itself .
and here i remembered an old chineese saying that states: \"the destination does not matter, it\'s the path that you choose to take that\'s important \"
and i believe there is something just like that in islam too.
the few things i believe in in this life ( for the moment at least)
are mostly related to the way a treat my fellow human in general, trying to be fair and to do the best you can all hte time.
