Every time you need to buy something and you have the money to purchase it, feel pleasure and gratitude that you have the money you need.
When waiting in line in a grocery store, instead of focusing on how slowly the line is moving, focus on how fortunate you are to be able to buy the food you need. Thank G-d that the food is available and you have the money to buy it!
(see Yesod Veshoresh Hoavodah: Tzava no.32; Gateway to Happiness,
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.
