You have the amazing ability to tell yourself, "With every breath I take, I am breathing in courage."
As you breathe slowly and deeply, feel yourself taking in oxygen and at the same time feel yourself taking in more and more courage. Realize that oxygen is a gift to you from the Creator, as is the capacity to take the oxygen into your lungs and from there have it sent to all the cells of your body. This is a magnificent and brilliant system.
The Creator of the entire universe is All-powerful. Allow your awareness of His power to empower you with the courage you need to accomplish all that you can in this world.
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.
