As far as believer is concerned he should/will be alert of his actions. The reason is fairly simple that he is answerable to each and every single action of his in the hereafter. He should feel in the depts of his soul that he is in constant need of the help and support of Allah, no matter how much he may think he can do things by himself/others help. He knows that it is Almighty Allah Who is in control of the affairs of the universe and of mankind.
So, it is the matter of complete submission to Allah and His Messenger. When there is a doubt in the submission to this, then there is a concern to be addressed as the hadith states: Each of you is a shepherd, and each of you is responsible for his flock (i.e. those owe whom you have authority).
But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make you judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against your decisions, but accept them with the fullest convictions. ( Quran 4 : 65).
The sincere muslim is convinced that belief in the will and decree of Allah is one of the pillars of faith. Whatever befalls him in life cannot have been avoided,because Allah has decreed it.  His acceptance of the divine will and decree will earn him a great reward from Allah, Who will count him as one of the successful, obedient believers.
 The muslim may find himself becoming neglectful and slipping from the straight path, so that he may commit a sin which does not  befit him as a humble and vigilant believer, but he will soon remember his Lord, turn away from his error and seek forgiveness for his failings.

The sincere muslim seeks to earn the pleasure of Allah in everything that he does. He is not concerned with seeking the approval of other, and indeed he may incur the wrath and hatred of people in the course of his efforts to win divine favour, as the prophet (pbuh) said:
Whoever seeks the pleasure of Allah at the risk of displeasing the people. Allah will take care of him and protect him from them. But whoever seeks the pleasure of the people at the risk of angering Allah. Allah will abandon him to the care of the people. (Tirmidhi).
The believer is concerned about his prayer and the pillars of Islam, with out which his faith is not complete.  Serving and worshiping Allah may be accomplished through every deed of man that is aimed at building a civilization establishing the authority of Allah on earth and living according to His commandments. The sincere believer will feel that his worship is lacking is he does not strive to achieve the purpose for which Allah created Jinn and men.
I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me. (Quran 51: 56)

No wonder that a believer joyfully embraces this mission and eagerly devotes all his resources- his time, his energy and his wealth- to fulfilling it. It is the distinguishing characteristic of his life, for it entitles him to draw closer to Allah, by his ibaadaat, understanding the purpose of his creation, reading the message from Allah, and not deviating from the path of Allah as Messenger taught him.
Can then any Muslim ignore his Creator ?
