Daily Lift #437

Feel Joy in Improving your Character

For a wise person, there is no greater joy than that of improving his character traits. When someone reaches this level, he can feel joy even when someone insults him - because he has worked himself free of all animosity and resentment.

Take pleasure every time you: - control yourself from getting angry - are patient with others - overcome your desires - react positively instead of with envy about someone else's accomplishments.

(see Chazon Ish - Emunah U'bitochon, 4:15; Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Happiness," p.110)
