Give a person enthusiasm and you have given him a key to success. Enthusiasm isn't everything, but it goes far.
When a person goes for a job interview, enthusiasm will give him a better chance of getting hired. Of course, enthusiasm without knowledge and skill alone isn't enough. But an enthusiastic person is more likely to gain the necessary knowledge and skill.
Enthusiasm is energy. And energy is what you need to get up and go. Unfortunately, there are many of whom it can be said, "His get-up-and-go has gotten up and gone."
Don't let that be said about you. Be enthusiastic, and enthusiastically increase the enthusiasm of others.
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.
