object on an inclined plane

Force caused by gravitation will be split into two components depending of your inclination. One will be opposite to the normal force, but other will make your object accelerate if friction force is surpassed.
Oh thanks this makes a lot of sense :) so one of the component is to overcome the weight then the other component is to overcome the friction is there is any movement at all. But when u draw the free body diagram I don't split them up right?

Thanks so much u rock!
