The Egyptian Mentality
Egyptians, the people who suffer alot and do nothing about it. Egptians, the kindest souls of all times. Egyptians, who just agree on what goes on whether it is for their sake or not.
If you ask an Egyptian about his life, the typical answer would be that it is going OK but not in the way he imagined and he would also say that he is happy and satisfied with his life. People just accept the life they get and they don't try to work to achieve something useful for them and their community ("mastoora w al 7amdu lellah"). What makes me pretty sad is when higher educated people think like that.. an Engineer salary may reach 300 egyptian l.e. per month, which is worth 30 british l.e. WOW!! engineers accept it, they live with it, they make families, they live and eat, then their time comes and die!!!!!.. (mastoora wal 7amdu lellah)
It is a good thing to accept your fate, but only if you try hard to be useful to people around too. This would guarentee a good life to your children and the coming generations. BE CREATIVE, achieve your goals and don't just drop it, use your youth time before it is too late to do something.
Life won't change unless we start with ourselves.Don't just sit lazily wondering when things will be prosper again, do something about it.
Do you Like the Egyptian situation?! NO?
Do you want to have a better life?! YES?
Do you want to guarentee a better life for your kids?! YES?
Do you think we are capable of making a change? Do you think we have the resources for it? .. please DONT say no, because we do.
So, we have the ability to change, we have the mentality to change, we have the education to change.. DO SOMETHING, BE CREAIVE..
