Here is a personal program geared toward reaching goals:
"I am now committing my mind and resources toward taking positive action to reach my most important goals. I can see myself speaking and acting in ways that enable me to reach my goals. I will feel great when I take action to accomplish what I want to accomplish. I will have the necessary wisdom to know what to do.
I will feel joy and happiness because I am making progress. I will enjoy every step that I take. I will find it tremendously pleasurable to do what I need to do. All blocks and obstacles will melt away. I will find it easier and easier to take action. I pray for Divine assistance in reaching my important goals. I will keep learning the knowledge and skills that will enable me to reach my goals.
I am grateful for all the goals that I have already reached. I will greatly enjoy the process. I am thankful to those who have helped me so far and will help me from now on. I will do all I can to help others reach their positive goals. I will be calm and serene about the entire process. I thank you, My Father, My King, Creator and Sustainer of the universe, for your assistance."
(from Rabbi Zelig Pliskin's book: "Conversations With Yourself", p.211) [Artscroll.com])
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.
