Is it about money or riches,
about health, looks or intelligence?
These are some of the things
very difficult for you to achieve
but something else is the most difficult.
People have been doing hard things
all their lives,
may it be in business,
in pursuing a healthy lifestyle,
or achieving that perfect look
or having that sought-after intelligence.
and making a lot of money
is very hard to achieve
especially if you start from scratch,
if you come from humble beginnings.
But so many have already made it
from rags to riches.
In the pursuit of health and wellbeing,
people have been doing exercises
that are grueling to sustain
and sporting fat free diets
that are almost impossible to maintain
and in the end,
they're rewarded with the results
they've been working hard for years.
Getting the coveted "looks"
is easier these days
especially when you got the money
to pay for dermatology and surgery,
along with diet and exercises.
Intelligence is the hardest one
among the money, health and looks.
It takes years and years in school,
and countless times of reading,
surfing the web, research
and a variety of experiences
for one to be truly considered intelligent.
All of those ones above:
getting rich from rags,
becoming fit from fat,
transforming to beauty from ugly
and going intelligent from foolish
are common everyday occurrence.
You can always find at least one
in your neighborhood.
They're very hard to materialize
but not impossible
and involves a lot of determination,
patience and perseverance.
what's the hardest one to achieve?
To become good, period!
That is definitely the hardest
and the most impossible for anyone.
You can be poor today
but rich tomorrow,
you can be ugly today
but beautiful in no time,
you can be overweight and obese
but buff in few years time
and ignorant and foolish
but smart and intelligent when least expected,
but not becoming good.
One lifetime is not enough
to become good.
Even if you're given 200 years to live,
your chance of becoming good
is almost nil or nothing.
To be good is not necessarily to be perfect
but involves so many things
all at the same time.
You have to be loving, caring,
sharing, generous, forgiving, respectful,
honest, sincere, kind, humble, benevolent,
considerate, passionate, compassionate,
gentle, friendly, merciful, helpful
and the list goes on and on.
And most of all,
you should have fear of God,
always acknowledging His Holy Presence
by being your most humble,
by bowing to Him,
by praying to Him,
above anyone and everything
and always giving Him thanks and praise.
If you look around you,
you can never find a truly good man.
A truly good man is godly
and doesn't live the worldly life.
He doesn't care about material things
but concentrate himself
on things divine and heavenly.
He doesn't care about business
and making money,
and ignores the pursuit of health,
beauty and intelligence.
He leaves everything behind
without looking back
and concerns himself
with the commandments of God
and the teachings of prophets.
His sole purpose in life
and his sole reason for living
is to follow God's laws all his time on earth,
and giving Him thanks and praise.
