O Prophet, urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty patient men among you, you shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred, they shall overcome a thousand unbelievers, for they are a nation who do not understand.
To obtain success, passion and patience required is ingrained in us. People with high spirit, but lack the patience, it will quickly fail when facing exams. We always want quick success, but many obstacles that need patience to deal with it.
We can see, that the great people gain success in a way that is not easy. Bill Gates, founder and owner of Microsoft Corporation, must have dropped out of college before he bench success. James Watt, inventor of the incandescent lamp, must have failed thousands of times before finally able to make lamps. They can succeed because it has two things, namely the spirit and patience which is very high.
There is no other way for us to succeed in addition to maintaining the spirit and patience. There are 4 ways to maintain the spirit and patience, including:
1. Join the people who succeed and fail.
2. Studying the successes and understand the failures.
3. affirm belief in Allah SWT.
4. Abandoning sloth.
Among the above four points, which should be our concern is the word lazy. Most of us are always a failure for not being able to leave laziness.
Sloth is a very dangerous disease. If this disease resides in a person, then this can make it not want to do good things and useful, keep him away from the success and prevent it from all the grandeur and glory.
Therefore, anyone who wants to succeed it must be hard, work hard, serious, seriously, would not sleep tonight in order to achieve glory, a race with time and compete with others.
Dr. Aidh Abdullah Al-Qarni said,
“The desire and hope can not be achieved with only dreamed of. But this world can only be achieved by people who want to try hard and earnestly.”
Prayers are conducted with people who are lazy, then the prayer is not valued and there’s no point. Learning and reading are done with the idle will not benefit anything. The work done with her lazy, it will not work.
It has become sunatullah, the industrious, energetic, sincere and willing to work hard, then he will achieve success. He who planted, then he will reap, and if any one patient and tenacious, he will succeed. Therefore always cultivate the spirit and patience, because it will make us successful.
