Thank you! So much...Mr. Harry.

You stated " It doesn't happen overnight...we grow a little each day till one morning ? We look at ourselves and can't believe what we become" This was in my thoughts after many,many years apply myself vertically ,day by day till one morning I felt stronger in the things of the Lord..studying the Word each day...I give all the glory to God.......we can become like in the book of Job....."though He slay me yet will I trust Him"....nothing will be able to defeat you! morning Job woke up? and found he had twice as much as he had before ...spiritually and earthly...and the good part he got to enjoy every part of it with long life.....on earth ? yes!, also,eternal life as well.

To clarify exactly HOW to do what the clip suggests, I think that at 2:40 minutes, the text should read 'When our SOUL focus is bringing out our own unique potential'. Our comfortable Ego may try or pretend, but it will never succeed in what our Divine Soul wants to and actually CAN do. As Human beings we must learn to reach up and search for our Higher motive, even though it may hurt.

Wonderful message!

Mr. Harary, I remember that you spoke this message in June 2010 at a Shabbaton that I attended in Lawrence, NY. It really spoke to me and proved to be a great inspiration. I'm very pleased that it's now in video format. I've shared it to my Twitter and Facebook feeds. Thanks again!

EASY (Button) Does It, to Build Momentum, Charlie!

Yes, it is important to raise the bar, but it is also important to gradually build momentum, Charlie....In fact I know a fitness trainer who is a champion weightlifter. He also teaches at a Yeshiva. He gets impatient with students, perhaps because he expects too much of them, all at once. As a result, he struggles to motivate his students.......I gave you an EASY button (from Staples) to suggest that small easy, repetitive steps are key. THANKS MUCH

Excellent! Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for this video! I really needed to hear this message this week, as I was feeling down when comparing my job/school/relationship situation to some of my peers. You are so spot on and so right about everything here, and anyone from any faith can benefit from this message. Keep these videos coming! They're great!
