Thank you for your question. Islam sees human beings as endowed with the potential to reach the highest levels of perfection and as such charts a path for them to reach that perfection.
If someone is able to understand and practice the teachings of Islam, it will enable them to rise above their current situation and pursue a path of purity, balance, sincerity, and righteousness, through purification of the heart and the development of the illuminated intellect.
But a human's responsibility to better themselves in Islam is not all that makes them better human beings. They also have a responsibility to help those around them and society at large.
By improving themselves and having a positive effect on those around them they secure happiness in this world and the hereafter.
May you always be successful
