Have a meaningful Aidilfitri - Friday in The STAR

 I hated every minute of training, but I said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ – Muhammad Ali

Have a meaningful Aidilfitri: Make Malaysia GREAT

Thank you for following our advertisements. We find your feedback and support touching. We try hard to bring forth what is in your heart and represent the conscience of the nation.

We have just concluded our Ten Principles for a Moderate Malaysian series. Today marks the beginning of the Make Malaysia GREAT series.

1.    Why set a goal for greatness?

Striving for the best with clear, meaningful expectations will help us achieve our true potential. The goal to be great connects what is deep within our hearts, providing a worthy reason to put aside politics, parochialism, provincialism and racial goals. When the nation achieves greatness, everyone benefits. We are ready to suffer now to be a champion later. A shared goal towards greatness clears our minds and hearts to clinically detail out key values, skills and behaviours needed to move forward.

2.    What makes a great nation?

We need to agree on what makes a great nation. We must define good citizenship and who is the exemplary Bangsa Malaysia. What is needed at the family and school level? What can be considered a successful economy? How should our infrastructures be built? Do we amass military might or develop diplomatic excellence? What about sports, arts and culture? How do we define maturity in politics? How do we organize social relationships? How do we define Unity? What are our standards for excellence, for values, skills and behaviours?

3.    How you can assist zubedy?

Start a conversation to Make Malaysia GREAT. We want to hear from you. Write to us, talk to us. Share your thoughts, experiences, hopes, fears and dreams. What should change, what should stay and what should we modify? Suggest alternatives. Focus on the positives and offer constructive criticisms and possible solutions. Not grumbles and complaints.
