SCOTTISH author and reformer Samuel Smiles observed in his book ‘Self-Help’, that 'it is not ease but effort, not facility but difficulty that makes man.’ As what written in olden scripture of almighty 90 /4 ‘We have certainly created man into hardship ‘that is to struggle for the survival. This statement is based on a natural fact and history has proved its veracity. All those men who attained greatness, regardless of which walks of life they came from, were the products of difficulty and not of facility. They faced challenges and emerged as super achievers. But the question is why is it that difficulty has a greater role to play in the building of a personality than facility? The reason is traceable to one of the laws of Nature. According to this law it is the mind that is the master of the human personality. It controls all of our activities. Studies show that all our performances depend totally on our minds. The fact is that all of our actions, big or small, are directly related to our minds. It is the mind that directs all the activities of our personality.

The human mind is greater than all of the great things of the universe; it has amazing qualities. The mind has unlimited reserves of energy. When we decide to do anything, the mind at once releases energy and we perform with the aid of this energy. The mind is the prime source of energy and whatever we do can only be done with the help of this energy. If we choose to do some easy task, then the mind will release less amount of energy. And, if we decide to do some difficult or great task, then the mind will release greater amount of energy. The building of a personality depends on one's own efforts. If one is an easy-going person then one is bound to receive less energy from his mind and the result will be a weak personality. If one is ambitious and choose to embark on a great task, then certainly the mind will release greater amount of energy, resulting in the development of a strong personality. Everyone is born with the same mind that is full of energy. But some people fail to utilize their energy and die without developing their personalities so god almighty will question human being what he had done in this world in chapter no 89/24.

The other kind of people is those who set a great task as their goal. Thus, their minds release a greater amount of energy for the performance of this task, and so they become super achievers. Man himself is the master of his destiny. It all depends on how much a person has unfolded his mind and how much energy the mind has released. One achieves greater or smaller successes in life depending on how much energy one’s mind releases. And it is He who has made you successors upon the earth and has raised some of you above others in degrees (of rank) that He may try you through what He has given you. Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful. (Quran 6/165)

Every man is a self-made man. But the quantum of success depends on one’s own planning. Wise planning makes one an achiever while unwise planning makes one lag behind in life. The mind of man is like an energy reservoir. If one’s target is ordinary then the mind will open the door of energy on a small scale. But, if the target is a high one, the mind will open the gate of energy on a larger scale. It is this difference that decides the level of one’s achievement. Try to utilise your mind, and you will certainly achieve anything you want to in life.

Man himself is the master of his destiny.
It all depends on how much a person has unfolded his mind and how much energy the mind has released.
And how much he is utilising it.
