Someone once asked me why do I pray “In Yeshua’s name, amen!” I actually have very many answers for that question, so many in fact that as I thought about it, I answered, “Why don’t you pray in the name of Yeshua?” Of course the person doing the asking was really asking why I did not pray in the name of Jesus? Therefore, I decided to write a series of posts on why I pray this way and title it, In Yeshua’s Name!
The series, In Yeshua’s Name!, is a thoughtful consideration of what name the Original Bible tells us to pray in.
“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”

As David Tait has said, “The true work of a con artist, is to make you believe, you don’t need to pay attention.” To pay attention is one of the key principles to becoming a success. You need to pay attention, to see what no one else sees. You need to pay attention, to hear what other people ignore. You need to pay attention, to be a Success in Life, Love and Business!
The best thing to do is to always compete with yourself
and not to compete with others. ~ Kelly Cutrone ~
The con artist pays attention to you, in order to learn how to gain your confidence. Remember that con artist is actually short for confidence artist, his “art” is in paying attention. The salesman works, more honestly, in much the same way. He pays attention, listening for you to tell him how to sale you his product.
“Never give in
and never give up.”

Most things you try won’t work the first time. When what you are doing doesn’t appear to be working, don’t think that means it failed. It likely means it won’t be a success in the method you are trying.
Life isn’t fair, so why play by the rules? You make your own breaks, your own rules, under the law!
Instead, life gives us the chance to make our own fate. To strive, to fight against all odds. I was a street kid, so poor that sometimes days or even weeks would go by without food. Drinking muddy water from the street just to survive is an experience I have that few others understand.
A lifetime may seem like a long time. However, it does not seem so when we examine it in terms of “miles” and “milestones” rather than years. Only one person in 10,000 lives to see their 100 birthday. Most people die within the Age of the Bonus Mile (right after the Age of the Last Mile).
