It Ain’t G-d Like


We were made in his image, that we must never forget. This is a testament not only to our virtues but also to our pursuits and conquests as we seek to build our lives and pull our dreams into the realm of reality.

Great things come to those who wait, but greater things comes to those who work. If we take our inspiration from the bible, we can see that G-d worked six days through and rested when he was finished. Regardless if you are a believer or not, the example set by the story of creation can be inspiration to all to actively pursue their interest.

We are a world of dreamers and we live on wishes. The wish to be at the top of the music charts, the wish to publish our first book, the wish to be at Paris fashion week. Whatever the dream or the wish is, it will never become reality for the majority of us by wishing alone.

Rewards are gained through an active pursuit of our interest. Only by not waiting for handouts and creating your own reality will you ever gain the happiness you seek

It is sometime difficult to begin our pursuits. Fear, indecision, and a lack of self-confidence confines us to our wishes. Yet, if you don’t work for it you won’t gain it. It is nice to enjoy your life and always keep YOLO at the tip of your tongue, but it would be wiser to save YOLO for your own personal Sabbath when the work is done. There is no fear in faith and there is no reward in inactivity.

As you chase your dreams you learn, you grow, and eventually you realize your dream has become tangible and no longer subsist as just a dream.

Dream big, set goals, take action.

There is no fear in faith and there is no reward in inactivity. Your life won’t build itself. You can rest when you’re dead.

 “Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts. By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”
