If you don't know what you want, you won't know when you've gotten it..

 When it comes to your life, what do you want? 
How does your money fit into that?

If you can't answer these two questions, you won't ever know when you've been successful. In fact, it might be worse than that: you might achive what you thought you wanted, or what all of your friends want, and suddenly realize that it doesn't satisfy. In order to make sure you're going the right direction for you, it's important to figure out what you want from your life.
We're all going after something. That's part of being alive. As long as we're living and acting, we are headed towards something. Even if we don't want to live, we're going towards our goal (yes, death is a goal la beb!!). Our lives are going somewhere. We're caught up in the stream of living and we'll end up somewhere. We don't where it is, but its sure, am i rite?

Luckily for us, we have some say about where we can end up. Sure, we all die in the end, but we have the abilitiy to decide what is important and make choices towards that end. If you're saying, "Sure, JMR we all know that. Make this entry worth reading, already!" then tell me what you're living for. Go ahead, tell me what your life's goal is. Tell me why you're on this earth and how all the different parts of your life fit into that. If you don't want to answer me, definitely, " Ada aku kisah? " for you...hehehe..
If you can do that, you're ahead of most of us. Deciding what we want, what we're about, takes a lifetime of deliberate, focused introspection. But we can figure out different parts of this whole at different times in our lives, and we can live deliberately towards them.

and..... ALLAH knows BEST.....

Make sure we are heading in the right direction before you start running. No point to move fast if we are going the wrong direction.

Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. has shown us the direction. Follow it.
