Among all living creatures, only human beings who are born into, which can carry out good or bad deeds, mingle into good deeds and bad deeds are. Thus was born a human point reward (Sloka two of Sarasamuccaya)
Sloka above teaches us to be an optimist through life, because man is born into a large fortune. Humans are able to change the bad deeds into good deeds.
Good deed is an act that brings all the goodness such as improving the ability of self, providing the service (seva), giving alms / Punia to the needy, maintaining harmony with Hyang Widdhi(God) and The Ancestor, maintaining harmony with fellow human beings, to maintain harmony with nature, one to maintain its sustainability, in a word, the works which provide a positive output. When we managed to improve ourselves, excel in areas in which we live, personally we will happy and the family also will happy, our friends are also happy, especially our parents would be proud to have us.
Therefore, do something good not to procrastinate, do it now, right now, because only this moment is ours, we do not yet know the future, what will happen, do we still have a chance for it or not, time also has been passed, we can not turn back.
To implement these good ideas then we need a strong will (big will), why..? because in the process there will be challenges and obstacles, both from within and from outside ourselves. Obstacles that could arise for example; Lust act without the knowledge, Loba / excessive desire to possess something, Easy to anger, impatient in running all aspects of life, confusion or doubt in stride, forget about something, either the object or activity to forget about their own health and family, lazy, envious. Do not be surprised if Vince Lombardi said:
“The Difference Between a Successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.” Vince Lombardi
This strong will, made a lot of people who though born in a poor condition, were finally able to be a success skyrocketed. Call it like:
