When you upgrade your brain in any single context, you get a
free upgrade in each and every context of your life.
When your brain enables you to feel confident and empowered
when interacting with one person, your brain can enable you to
feel this way in all contexts. If you can be creative in one area,
your brain can be creative in many similar areas. If your brain
can concentrate when you read one thing, you can
concentrate in other areas as well. If you were able to cope
well with a specific difficult person or difficult situation, it
means that the inner resources that enabled you to do so are
stored in your brain and your brain can access them with other
people and situations. When you are able to create or access
the states of happiness and joy at will, it means that your
brain can do this over and over again in many other contexts
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.
