    Just about everywhere I go in this intricate blog-sphere of site's, servers, articles and people, I come face to face with more people just venting out their frustration at the status quo on their personal blogs. But what is anyone doing about it?

    Ranting

    Someone said, "Shout loud and you will be heard", sometimes that's all it takes. Raise your voice and meet the challenges. But it's often people who actually take action, propose alternatives and not being just purely negative about matters that getthings done. One can shout out loud, at the top of their lungs and still not move a single grain of sand.

    Mountain

    Moving mountains requires collaboration, ingenuity, muscle, innovation, sweat, discipline and a LOT of hard work. Before you rant and ramble about an issue, ask you self the following questions:

    • What can I do to make things better?
    • Did I reconsider my conclusion? Am I right in my conclusion or do I need to revise it?
    • Do I have all the information I need to make that choice?
    • Am I qualified enough to understand the challenges lying ahead and be able to overcome them
    • Is this a personal matter, and I'm neglecting the greater good?
    • So this works for me, who is going to suffer from my choice?

    These are essential questions that each and every one of us need to ask themselves to understand the nature of the problems ahead and to come up with brilliant solutions to overcome even the toughest challenge.Candle

    Someone once said "It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness". I find these words fascinating. As many people who continuously shout out their frustrations, fail to come up with viable alternative.

    The truth is, as I would borrow from Newton's first law, "An object at rest or traveling in uniform motion will remain at rest or traveling in uniform motion unless acted upon by a net force", applying this to humans, you will see that people hate change, people hate to be driven out of their comfort zones. Some will do what ever it takes to remain that way. It's called Inertia. We tend to prefer the status quo, until something external pushes us out of our orbits.

    There is few universally accepted rules, one of which is "change is inevitable", despite our most sincere attempts, things will change and new opportunities/obstacles will present themselves to challenge the comfort of our status quo. At this point we need to reflect on that and ponder, why am I against it?

    It's ironic that the upcoming youth, facing all sort of obstacles from older generations hindering their progress and change, would one day be the very generation presenting the following ones with obstacles.

    Ya3ni Allah Yejzeek 5eir,
    I tried to talk about it but I myself got all complaining!
    Here's another question: what can (and should) Middle Eastern societies do for themselves alone and what should they ask for assistance with?
    Actually Peter, that's a very good question, it will require a lot to answer it though
