Make it a high priority to become a person who is consistently grateful. Let this be an important goal. "Nothing stands in the way of a strong will." This principle is the source of the success of successful people. Those who achieve excellence in any area need to have a strong will to take action.
If you are not yet a person who has mastered gratitude, intensify your will to do so. The stronger your will, the more likely you will succeed.
Studies show that people who make goals are much more successful at whatever they do than those who don't make goals. Without making a formal study of it, it appears quite obvious that there are many more people who make it their goal to make more money than there are people who have it as their goal to master gratitude. A person who has great wealth will still be unhappy if he hasn't also mastered gratitude.

MK Ahmad Tibi on Trump's remarks: 'If there will be one state, I will be Prime Minister'
Several hours after the press conference between Netanyahu and Trump ended, MK Ahmad Tibi of the Joint Arab List party stated that if there will be one state for the Israelis and Palestinians, he will be the Prime Minister.
Today (Thursday), MK Ahmad Tibi of the Joint Arab List party responded to yesterday's press conference between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump and the remarks that Trump's administration will not necessarily be promoting a two-state solution. "If this is a regression from the vision of a two-state solution, we are going back two decades," he told CNN news.
"If this will be the case, I will be running for the post of Prime Minister," Tibi stated. "And I can assure you that I will beat Bibi Netanyahu." He added that in such a scenario, the demographic situation will change and there will be a majority of Palestinians. "All Palestinians will vote for me," he added. "Some Israeli Jews will vote for me and Netanyahu will be the loser."

In response to Trump's remarks that Palestinians need to stop educating their children to hate, Tibi said: "You can never ask those who are under occupation to love their occupier- it is unreasonable."
During the press conference, Netanyahu stated that two necessary conditions for peace must be the recognition of the Jewish state and Israel's security control over the West Bank.

"And say: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold I am against thee O Gog chief prince of Meshech and Tubal." Ezekiel 38:3 (The Israel Bible™) Read more at https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/83408/identities-gog-magog-revealed-confirmed-bible-codes/#eEltpB35mKuek48t.99
The war of Gog and Magog occurred when the United States abstained from the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 on December 23, 2016, claimed rabbinic scholar and popular lecturer Rabbi Mendel Kessin in a recent interview with Tamar Yonah, veteran radio host at Israel News Talk Radio.
In the interview, Rabbi Kessin, who has recorded over 25 hours of classes about the Messianic implications of events in the 21st century, said, "The UN is Gog and Magog. The UN is the entire world against Israel.
"They actually said that Jerusalem is occupied territory, which is absurd. Why did the UN do it? Because what God obviously did is He made the UN decree against Israel include Jerusalem (which is nonsense), in order that that institution, and the decree, should be Gog and Magog.
"And the one who did that is Obama… The last job [Obama] had was to accelerate the Messianic process by having the war of Gog and Magog, which is the UN, against Israel. So therefore, that aspect of the prophecy is now fulfilled, and now the rest of the Messianic process can continue."
Rabbi Kessin's assertion is supported by a Bible Codes table recently published by international Bible Codes expert Rabbi Matityahu Glazerson. After hearing a presentation of Rabbi Kessin's claim that the UN and Obama are connected to Gog and Magog, Rabbi Glazerson began looking for a meeting of codes for the UN and for Obama.
He found these codes in the Book of Numbers, chapters 30 and 31. The first code he points out is HaUm, followed immediately by Gog. In Hebrew, the UN is called Haumot HaM'uchadot, which is abbreviated by Hebrew speakers as HaUm.
Less than 10 letters away, Rabbi Glazerson found the Hebrew word oyav, which means enemy. The implication is that the UN is the enemy of Israel. Codes for Obama and Kerry are found in the same small table.
Rabbi Glazerson points out codes for Islamic nations, which fight against Israel. He also found the Hebrew code for Persia, one of the nations that fights against Israel in the war of Gog and Magog, according to a prophecy from the Book of Ezekiel. Many consider Biblical Persia to be equivalent to modern Iran.
Persia Cush and Put with them all of them with shield and helmet. Ezekiel 38:5
Ending on a hopeful note, in the middle of the table, Rabbi Glazerson points out the codes for "Messiah of Israel will take revenge" against the enemies of Israel.
The connection between Gog and Obama was also made more than a year ago, when Breaking Israel News published a viral news story about a 15 year-old Israeli boy named Natan who had a near-death experience. In a video interview, Natan, a previously secular student, returned from his experience quoting Biblical prophecy regarding the End of Days.
In that video, Natan clearly named Obama as Gog. "The person who will start the war will be somebody named Gog… I am certain of who it is. Obama. President Obama. He will be the one who starts that war."
Breaking Israel News asked End of Days expert and prolific author Rabbi Pinchas Winston whether, in his opinion, the connection these three sources have made between Obama and the UN with Gog and Magog is accurate. "It's really hard to know until after the fact, for obvious reasons. But, it's worth suspecting to prepare for what is coming up," he said.
While implying that it's good to be cautious, Rabbi Winston also advised preparedness because "Whatever is coming up is the end of the story."

The Israelite week was established at the time of creation as a seven day cycle. Today we take this for granted, but the idea that humans should organize and track their time around periods of seven days was not always universally accepted. Periods of six and ten-day weeks can be found in a number of ancient cultures. Moreover, in the Israelite/Jewish week, the days, instead of being named, are simply numbered. Only the seventh day has been privileged to have its own name שַׁבָּת (shabbat) - the Sabbath.
How did the seventh day get the name "Sabbath"?
The word שַׁבָּת (shabbat) comes from the story of creation in Genesis 2:1-3. It is said that God ceased/rested from all the work that he had done on the seventh day. The word for resting/ceasing that is used in Hebrew is "shabbat".God blessed that day and it became a special day ever since. In Modern Hebrew, the word for "labor strike" is שביתה (shvita) and comes from the very same root.
