Write The Story Of Your Life

Write The Story Of Your Life

View each day as a page in your autobiography.

You have the ability to fill each page with beautiful stories of spiritual growth and kind deeds. Past pages are already written, but you can revise their significance by learning from your mistakes. In a panoramic view of your life, those mistakes become stepping stones for growth.

Future pages are not yet ready to be written. Only the present pages are before you. You have the opportunity to be the author of a masterpiece which describes the life of a great person: you.

(Rabbi Yechezkel Abramsky; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.152)

NEW BOOK!

Rabbi Zelig Pliskin's new book has just been published by ArtScroll: ENCOURAGEMENT: Formulas, Stories, and Insights.

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.
