Is regular self-development necessary?

SHAFAQNA – In a letter to one of the commanders of the army (Sharih Bin Hani), Imam Ali (AS) wrote: Fear God, in every morning and night (at every moment of your life), and fear from being deceived by the world, and never feel secure from this world. Beware that if you do not prohibit yourself from things you like or from what you do not like, the desires will lead you to a lot of harm. Therefore, take control of your soul and guard it, and rule over your soul at the time of anger [1].

[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Letter 56.
