What is Moral Fiber? As per one of the definition on the internet --
"The one thing you find that makes you completely happy.The one thing you can't live without. Once you find your moral fiber, you continue to chase after and do whatever it takes to help your moral fiber."

Hmm..what a meaningful set of lines and a simplest of the descriptions to what i would want to interpret as the "Secret to Happyness"( using a "y" instead of "i" in happiness as inspired by the movie "Pursuit of Happyness"). Though it might look easier at once to identify your Moral Fiber but trust me it is not. One big reason why its such a difficult task is because we always have a list of things what we want instead of one single thing, which can make us completely happy and without which there is no life for us. Are you able to think just this one thing now??

The answers could be YES or the answer could be NO. If the answer is YES then you know your Moral Fiber and may be you are already working for it, which is a healthy thing to do as you are clear about the meaning of your life to a large extent and moving closely to the happyness of your life. But if your answer is NO then you dont have a Moral Fiber, you are still a confused personality who does not have a fixed priority in life and you are still searching the answer from thyself about that onething, which really matters to you in life.

There is one another meaningful definition of Moral Fiber which says - "Moral fiber is the capacity to do what is right, no matter what the circumstance". So, it means if somebody offers a bribe to me, I should not take it and do the work in best possible way I can even after declining the bribe. Au contraire, I got reminded of the famous dialogue of the movie "Girl Next Door", which said - "Moral fiber's about finding that one thing you really care about. That one special thing that means more to you than anything else in the world. And when you find it, you fight for it. You risk it all, you put it in front of everything, your life, all of it. And maybe the stuff you do to help her isn't so clean. You know what? It doesn't matter. Because in your heart you know, that the juice is worth the squeeze. That's what moral fiber's all about." Both the statements are in contrast, the former believes in doing the right things, more ethically correct orthodox ways of doing a thing and the later emphasized more on the results than the non-ethical and politically wrong ways of achieving the Moral Fiber. I dont know which one is wrong but what I feel is both conditions are situational, in one I may follow strict ethics and in other I may not.

Moral Fiber is most famously used in America, which is a very correct statement as outside America, people dont even know what it is. American's are so much in obsession with Moral Fibers that they claim - "Moral fiber the core strength of America. Moral fiber is a strong, truthy strength that is found in True Americans. A person with Moral fiber can stand up to anything the liberals of the world can throw at them. People with Moral fiber are always Christians and Republicans. They oppose gay marriage, abortion, peace, and high taxes.".

But I think everybody in life has a Moral Fiber despite of the race, region or cast. Only thing important is how soon an individual realize it or he ever realize it? This is really tricky but almost 85% of the people around the world are not sure of what they want, and they dont have a Moral Fiber and the worst is they dont even realize in their whole lives. Moral fiber can only be achieved by self realization. The sooner we realize, the sooner the life changes and the better life we live. The life filled with satisfaction and grief. So, better find your Moral Fiber soon and live the life of your dreams.
