Fail to plan is Plan to fail
Plan your work and Work your plan
We always heard to the above statement. It is an encouragement to make a plan to be a better person. Planning actually is a preparation to face unknown future life, but not all plans will become true, it is just a plan, the rest will be the effort of a person to make the plan successful.
I'm still remembered during my secondary school, one of the motivators encouraged to all of us to make a plan of what you wanna be in the future. He said, the person who makes a plan will be more successful compare to those who does not has a single plan. He also said that those plans should be written down to be remembered all the times, because imagination unable to achieve the plans. So, write the plan, and work on that plan...!
Since 15, I wrote my own plan what I wanna be in the future. What I wanna do for 10 years in the future. I think, even though I didn't achieve all that plans, but I'm satisfied with myself right now. Last year, my age was 25, and I never regret what happened in my life along last years.
So, becoming 26 years old this year, I have to make another plan for 10 more years in the future. The plan is done but the important thing is my effort to make all those plans succeed, because hard efforts will determine the success. Ralph Waldo Emerson said; ''Life is not a destination, but a journey..". That's why, I make this blog as my journey of life, but not all that has been written here showing my true identity...
Allah, The Perfect Creator, The Best and Ideal Planner..
Nevertheless, how great our plans are, there is a greater plan which is written by He The Most Knowing, al-'Alim wa al-Khabir. Yes, we have the right to list down our plans, but we do not have the right to decide those plans and make them come true no matter what happen. Because the decision is in the hand of Allah. He plans everything and has the power to make those plans successful or fail. Allah has mentioned in Surah al-Anfal, verse 30: "They plot and plan, and Allah too plans; but the best of planners is Allah."
But I'm sure Allah will plan the best for those who try to do the best for seeking His pleasure and avoiding His anger. That is our own effort to ask Allah to give us the best, even though it seems not good for us, but Allah knows everything. He might give something that bad to us, but indirectly He wanna us to think the reason behind all those things. Isn't true that Allah said: "But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not."
Anyway, do not give up early... Please plan anything that best for you and your future, and do not forget to pray hard and hope that Allah will give chance to achieve that plans and dreams...
May Allah help me to achieve my plans..
May Allah make every journey in my life easier in the right path...
**Future life, is there long-lasting happiness for me?
