"The world was created for me" (Talmud - Sanhedrin 37a), and
"When will my deeds reach the level of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?"
The Torah attitude is that we are obligated to be aware of our greatness. Feel proud that you are created in the image of the Almighty. Pride in the elevation of your soul is not only proper, but is actually an obligation to recognize your virtues and to live with this awareness.
(Toras Avraham, p.49; Gateway to Happiness, p.119)
We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need 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

optimistic, and upbeat people.
