Flood

Randy Wagner might have seemed crazy – but he knew what he was doing!

Can you imagine what life was like during the Generation of the Flood? People were going about life as usual, while a lone man spent a year building a massive ark. People would walk by and laugh, “What are you doing Noach?” they would ask. And Noach would tell them, “I’m building an ark. A flood will be coming soon and it will destroy the entire world!”

The Story of The Carpenter and The Two Brothers

Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first serious rift in 40 years of farming side-by-side, sharing machinery and trading labor and goods as needed without a hitch. Then the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding and it grew into a…

The Magic of Our Words – Parshat Balak

Aladdin’s Magic Lamp

Parshat Balak tells us the story about a king ready to destroy the Jewish people. His reasoning – without any provocation or cause – based on made-up images that perhaps only a lunatic could consider. Having seen that Bnei Yisrael were successful in destroying the two kings – Sichon and Og, he imagined that he was next in line. His plan – to hire a magician to curse the Jewish people into oblivion.

Death! A word that conjures up little feelings of excitement – for most. Life – on the other hand, is the very purpose of existence. That word – when expressed in its most fullest manner, takes on feelings of joy and blessing.

Every Kid is ONE Caring Adult Away From Being a Success Story – Invest in a Kid Today! (Video)

Boy Behind Fence
Boy Behind Fence

A powerful motivational speech from Josh Shipp (Below). Once we are mature enough to realise the importance of others, one of our most important tasks is to take care of children, as the Torah teaches, “Where there are no kids (sic), there can be no goats” (Rashi to Isaiah 8:18). Everything about the goodness of this world begins with a child who grows up to become a success and to lead the next generation. When children are well taken care of and supported appropriately, “Educate the child according to his way; even when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6), that child will grow up to become a success.

Never Give Up – a Lesson From Jack Ma of Alibaba (with video)

Success - Set Goals
Success – Set Goals

I am constantly inspired by seeing how others have reached their own success in life. To be sure, success does not equal the dollar amount showing in a bank account. Success can be anything one aspires to in one’s life. Sometimes – for me, success is completing studying a Torah book. When I manage to work through a volume of hundreds of pages in length, it brings me a great sense of satisfaction. I’ve done it! One day – I am at the beginning of the book, unable to imagine ever getting through such a thick work! Weeks or months later – I turn around and say that I have actually done it! Now… I must find the means and time to learn it a second time!

None Of Us Can Make It Alone – Arnold Schwarzenegger

Man on Top of Mountain
On Top of the World

Success – we all want it! We all need it! As each day goes by, each of us strives to attain greater heights in our lives. Life is about growth. Every day should bring with it further success. When most of us are young, we tend to feel our achievements a lot easier. We work our way from kindergarten to primary school. From primary school to high school. From high school, we move onward. Some of us obtain a tertiary education – while others learn a craft. Some of us go on to work – just in order to be able to sustain ourselves. For the most part, this may constitute perhaps only a quarter of our lives.

Katherine’s Beautiful Mind – The Power of a Photographic Memory

Brain
Brain

The power of the mind. The power of the brain. The power of the soul. Those who study the writings of the holy Arizal – Rabbi Yitzchak Luria – as taught by his pupil Rabbi Chaim Vital, especially in his work Shaar HaGilgulim (the Gate of Reincarnations) will certainly know that there are many mysteries behind the process of souls entering bodies. As the soul enters, different powers are given to it to use in this world. Each of us has some sort of different brain power – as well as a variety of other powers (Kochot). The video below is just a snapshot of one person’s powerful brain – a gift from God.
