Daily Lift #685

Enjoy The Effort

When you toil in Torah studies, feel joy in your efforts even if you have not achieved your desired goal. It is a mistake to feel discouraged and to consider yourself unsuccessful if you have sincerely toiled in your studies. The toiling itself is success and you can feel satisfaction and joy.

(Rabbi Noson Wachtfogel, of blessed memory, mashgiach of Lakewood Yeshiva, Sichos Mussar, p.71; see Rabbi Pliskin's "Gateway to Happiness," p.99)

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.
