It would be nice if we all could succeed in all the things we want to see accomplished. It would best be to be realistic and always to see matters from the right perspective and by a righteous self-evaluation.
Only few are meant to succeed
So it goes in creative fields
Only few will reach the top or earn enough to keep things up
That’s just how it goes
For every star there are uncountable comets
But somedays a comet is the main attraction
Even though it doesn’t shine as bright
One has not to fool your brain about your exam, as is written in this article, but one has to find the inner strength and capability to do things, trusting in the self.
Concentrating on the material to learn, taking away distraction tools is much better than to fool your brain because you will be fooling yourself.
Ther conclusion of the article is right: the vibe should be to study. To read, learn and think, study and study.
Honestly people who are both enjoying and suffering from covid situations are students. They are enjoying their no school time + chilling at home but at the same time struggling to keep study track.
Now why are we struggling :
Why is it necessary? For example you are struggling to do regular exercise . Now imagine One day you wake up to see no clothes fit you , you weigh 80 kgs , everyone bullying you, your favourite dress no longer fits you, you are driven into eating disorder and depression. Now , will you face that same struggle of irregularity ? Or would you be working extra hard to to burn off extra calories , to have your dream body, or that 6 abs … Now the same applies with your exams. I know no one of us want to…

Life often goes by faster than we can grip it.
Man often forgets his Creator, or does not want to know about Him, Who gives life and all beauty found around. Too often man wants to compare to others, who have gathered more money and success, though who did not always find that happiness they were looking for as well.
Too often man forgets he can not take anything with him into the grave, up to another life, because when man dies everything for him comes to an end. Then it will be too late to change roads or to get on the right track. Therefore, he better find the right track before, and chooses to follow the Right One, instead of the world.
Day by day
As a rapid stream of time
It tightens the circle
Day by day
He runs away
My false desires
The weave falls
Infinite fertile garden
Eternal thought the Masterpiec!
I would like to respect heaven
Ground forehead to slope
But I am ungrateful
That imperfect …
They feed each other
Wrapped in a net
I am ashamed of these
Which is not ashamed
That it is over
The graves will make us equal
Once on our way in life we are confronted with lots of things, of which some seem difficult to tackle or which are disturbing us.
All of us search for the better life and have their goal put on marvellous things we dream of. Many people think a good life and happiness lies in gathering wealth, but they are mistaken.
Many think they have to look for luck by others around them and think the world can offer them peace within. They do hope to achieve great success, and some even can do so but in the end do not feel very happy. Several who seem to have reached the top within themself do not feel really satisfied or fulfilled despite becoming a multi-millionaire or a star. Oh, so many go looking for luck and happiness too far away out.
Too many people do forget that answers should be found within themself, becoming self-aware and having the right spiritual goal.
It might not always easy to accept we failed in something. But we should come to understand we better learn from any failure and go on avoiding it in the future by not falling in the same trap or by not choosing the wrong direction.
Lots of people do not want to know they are created in the image of their Maker. The majority of the world population even does not want to accept such Eternal Spirit Being would exist. But if they would learn more about Him and read His Words, they would be able to find the most valuable Guide for life (in His given Word: the Bible). That century assembly of books gives enough wisdom to mankind to find the best way to live and shows the path to true happiness.
- Failure =/= failure < > brings a lot of experience + maturity in our brain and mind set = > a way towards success.
- willpower matters a lot
- believe in yourself + never give up > you “can do it”.
- Think Positive
- Trust in Hard Work
- Set your goal > set a milestone for yourself. Every target and milestone has some requirements = think, find the story, model them, and then try to better them
- empower your will power with greatness you have achieved in your life.
Nothing is impossible, I mean to say that “Everything is Possible”.
Do you have dreams in your mind and do you work hard to achieve those Dreams?
Have you observed people around you in their daily life?
There are 75% of people we noticed that they are happy with their current status. They do not want to do something new in their lives. They even didn’t bother to think about something that is better than their current status.
Why? I asked Why? Let me tell you, it’s because they are so much comfortable in their current status. They don’t want their selves to get outside of their comfort zone. Keep in mind, YOU were born for a special purpose.

Growing up we have to face different roads and more than once, need to make difficult choices which direction to take. That’s not always easy and sometimes we come to know much too late we took the wrong road.
Our path of life may be very bumpy and with a lot of difficult and even dangerous corners. Handling our own driving wheel we must learn from our experiences, but may never forget we can learn also from the experiences of others. Therefore, it is always also very important to have ear and eyes open for what others felt and did and to look back at historical facts.
Let us not only learn from own experiences but let us also from everything we can hear and see around us.
- Life =/= so easy >Every day facing new challenges + hardships => rarely a smooth + problem-free life.
- always hurdles and difficulties in life +> making us stronger.
- Life = challenge every passing day teaches us a new lesson.
- Bumps in life, the problems, and challenges of life make us stronger to face every kind of situations.
- Without these little hurdles, life would be meaningless for us.
- Need to get out of your comfort zone + select a good milestone for your life.
- Success requires to conquer many fields of difficulties.
- For every problem in life, there is a solution
- Difficulties in life make us learn that how much we are capable of facing those hard times in life.
- After facing all challenges > feel proud of ourselves
- Thoughts + fear in our mind > to tackle
- Every day a new challenge to learn something new => will learn to live a life in a meaningful way.
- Accept the challenges of life.
- Always a positive + negative aspect of everything.
- Negative parts of our lives teach us so many things that make us more sensible.
- Hardships make us more mature to deal with the problems.
Life is not so easy. Every day we face new challenges and hardships. A person rarely has a smooth and problem-free life. There are always hurdles and difficulties in life, which makes us stronger. And that is the real picture of life. If we always face easiness in life, we can never know the reality and pain of life. Life is like a challenge every passing day teaches us a new lesson. So if we don’t find any hardships, then we can’t get any real experience from life. Straight roads can’t make you a great driver. The bumps in life, the problems, and challenges of life make us stronger to face every kind of situations. Without these little hurdles, life would be meaningless for us.
You need to get out of your comfort zone and select a good milestone for your life. Success doesn’t comes over night. We are required…

This is your thought of the day:
Any person can be successful on smooth seas – but – it is the victor over the storm who gains true honour.

Uit de Oude doos: 2008 Er was een tijd dat Israël zich moeiteloos staande kon houden tegenover de omringende Arabische wereld. De oorlogen die het moest voeren om te overleven in 1948, 1967 en 1973 werden betrekkelijk gemakkelijk gewonnen, ondanks de numerieke overmacht van hun vijanden. Dat werd in de daarop volgende conflicten geleidelijk moeilijker, […]
Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? God openbaart Zich als de Heilige, die de zonden niet kan verdragen en deze veroordeelt. De meeste mensen vrezen God echter niet. Hun denken en doen is gericht op het voldoen aan hun begeerten. Door deze aardse, vleselijke gezindheid is de mens onheilig en […]
According to Catholic Catechism, the Catholic Church professes to be the “sole Church of Christ,” and that all duly consecrated bishops have a lineal succession from the twelve Apostles. In particular, the Bishop of Rome (the Pope), is considered the successor to the Apostle Peter, from whom the Pope (so called) derives his supremacy over […]

Om de wereld met haar vele problemen aan te kunnen zijn wij best ons te laten vormen door de Allerhoogste God. dit vergt openheid, vertrouwen en goodwill om ons door Hem te laten verbeteren en te leiden.

Iedereen krijgt in het leven zaken te verwerken en wordt op allerlei gebieden gelokt om bepaalde dingen te doen of niet te doen, te geloven of niet te geloven. De vele verleidingen kunnen ons verstikken en daarvoor moeten wij ten zeerste opletten om al hetgeen rondom ons door een juiste filter te laten gaan.

Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]

The fall Feast of Tabernacles is an “ingathering,” a celebration of harvest, and of thanksgiving for the provision God has given. In Israel, families will spend the week of celebration living in, or at least gathering in, temporary dwellings, rejoicing together while remembering the days of old.

Met Rosj Hasjana kijken velen naar een nieuw jaar met veelbelovende voornemens. Waar plaatst u zich in deze wereld vol onzekerheden?
According to Mishnaic teaching, the New Year festival ushers in the Days of Judgment for all of mankind. Despite its solemnity, the festive character of Rosh Hashana is in no way diminished. In Scripture it is called “a day when the horn is sounded”; in the liturgy “a day of remembrance.” Again this year there […]
De aoristus (Grieks: ἀόριστος, vertaling: onbepaald, vaag) is een tempus die voorkomt in verschillende talen, zoals het Oudgrieks, het Sanskriet, het Oudkerkslavisch en het Georgisch. In het Nederlands is er geen formeel equivalent van de aoristus, maar wel zijn er werkwoordsvormen die dezelfde betekenis kunnen uitdrukken. In het Latijn wordt dezelfde betekenis uitgedrukt door het perfectum.
Met Rosj Hasjana denken wij aan de wondere scheppingsdaad van de Allerhoogste. Spijtig genoeg moeten wij toegeven dat de mensheid van die schepping een janboel heeft gemaakt.
In these days of natural disasters that defy our regions, it is good to know that we have the Etz Chaim or Tree of Life within our reach.
Door de eeuwen heen zijn er steeds mensen geweest die inzagen hoe alles rondom hen mogelijk was en hoe er geloof kon gesteld worden in Die Maker van alle dingen en hoe ze Hem als het ware als een schild en toevluchtsoord konden gebruiken.
In en met hun geloof durfden zij te spreken over hun geloof en wat de wereld mocht verwachten in toekomende tijden.

Does one need proof to come to a certain belief? We can look at the signs in nature and find out what happened to certain people in the past, such as Noah and Paul. With the Book of Books, Allah has provided the world with His Interpretative Word.
Heeft men bewijzen nodig om tot een bepaald geloof te komen? Wij kunnen naar de tekenen in de natuur kijken en nagaan wat er in het verleden met bepaalde mensen, zoals Noach en Paulus is gebeurd. Met het Boek der boeken heeft Allah de wereld van Zijn Alzeggend Woord voorzien.
When we speak about “Faith” (iman) we look at acceptance of the Belief in the existence and oneness of God (Allah).and the existence of the Book of books of which God is the author, existing of five main parts, the Torah (revealed to Moses),,the Psalms (revealed to David).and the Writings of Kings and prophets as well as the Gospel (revealed to Jesus) with the writings of his apostles,
Wanneer wij over “Geloof” (iman) spreken, zien wij op de aanvaarding van het Geloof in het bestaan en de eenheid van God (Allah) en het bestaan van het Boek der boeken waarvan God de auteur is, bestaande uit vijf hoofdstukken, de Torah (geopenbaard aan Mozes), de Psalmen (geopenbaard aan David) en de Geschriften van Koningen en Profeten, alsmede het Evangelie (geopenbaard aan Jezus) met de geschriften van zijn apostelen,
