Mind is the praiseworthy gift of God. Every individual in this world has a will power in his reason. God has given us this precious and phenomenal thing and it is up to us to utilise our minds in a right way.
If we look at the world’s great, genius and marvelous personalities (either in the field of science or literature or in any other field), they all have had higher thinking and have put forward their thinking and concepts which are beyond the comprehension of our minds. Now if we look at ourselves, nowadays our main problem is that we have short-sighted ideas and therefore narrowed down the capacity of our minds. If we don’t evoke interest and involvement in any field, we may end up in trouble.
Our main problem is that we concede that everything is going to be difficult, and unhelpful, hence we do not look upon this needy and voracious world and don’t realize the need of an hour. So to assess our grades and status, we need to be optimistic, enthusiastic, and have encyclopaedic mindsets.
Those who have so far proved themselves in their fields and have achieved their goals, they are the same creatures of God as we are. If we look at the IT toppers, KAS toppers, professors, engineers, scientists, journalists and others, we come to know that they possess the same kind of minds as we have. And if we look at the English people, how they achieve their goals so easily? It is only because of their high imagination, determination and dignity of work, which we too have to some extent but need to be improved and capitalize in a proper way.
“If there is a will there is a way”
Nowadays our main problem is that we are under the bondage of time. We are not trying to follow the main, sophisticated and reserved ways, to experience a new path, a new thing or a valuable position, it seems obvious he/she achieves that level and fame which he/she wants and straight forward his/her worthwhile life.
We need to think higher and higher and try to prevent ourselves from these unruly and dishonored activities taking place in our society. We must look forward and increase our interests in any field and effort again and again to achieve our goals. If we want to complete with this world and want to live a prosperous life, we have to think individually and frame the paths, so that a lot of new ideas may arise and come in front. “Be like a pearl, round and rare not like a pebble, rough and found everywhere”
