We discussed earlier that those who trust in G-d constantly have peace of mind.
This does not mean we should sit back and refrain from taking action for our welfare. Rather, it means that even when you do take action, you realize that the ultimate outcome is up to the Almighty. Hence you will have peace of mind regardless of the outcome.
Moreover, while you will take action, you will not panic. You will do what is necessary under the circumstances, but will not act out of anxiety and "desperation."
(see Daas Chochmah Umussar, vol.1, p.10; Gateway to Happiness, pp.81-2)
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.
