How to avoid to be deceived by the world?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Baqir (AS) who said: Increase in your mind the thought of death, think a lot about it, because the one who thinks a lot about death, will not pay much attention to the world [1]. Of course it should be noted that there is nothing wrong with having or working to gain or own worldly assets/possessions, such as property, family, children, etc. No one will be interrogated for these things; the problem is, to have excessive desires for having or owning worldly assets, and all the time and the efforts are spent for worldly affairs, and there is no opportunity to think about or be prepared for the hereafter.
