Daily Lift #43

Good Deeds Elevate Us

When you are engaged in a mitzvah, you are not just doing a mechanical action. Rather, you are transforming yourself into a more elevated person. You are not just "doing," but "becoming."

Today, think of three good deeds you have done in the past that have given you a better feeling about yourself. Remembering these will increase your good deeds and increase their positive effect on you

(see Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz - Daas Chochmah Umussar, vol. 1, p.115)

NEW BOOK!

Rabbi Zelig Pliskin's new book has just been published by ArtScroll: ENCOURAGEMENT: Formulas, Stories, and Insights.

We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need encouragement.

Now, in this wise and charming new volume, we learn how to effectively use the massive power of encouragement, to encourage ourselves and others, particularly when we feel overwhelmed or depleted.

In Encouragement, Rabbi Pliskin shares meditations and affirmations, inspirational true stories, and his trademark wise, practical advice. He shows us how our words can help others - and ourselves -- become more confident, optimistic, and upbeat people.

Rabbi Zelig Pliskin is the author of 25 books with his specialty in mastering happiness and other positive inner resources.

His last 15 books include such titles as: "Taking Action", "Happiness", "Kindness", "Courage", "Serenity", "Building Your Self-image" "Conversations with Yourself" and "Marriage." These books are available at: Artscroll.com.
