Daily Lift #1241

Recall Your Successes

Right now, think of a challenge that you handled well. What did you think, say, and do that enabled you to handle it well?

There have undoubtedly been many challenges that you handled smoothly - and it might not have registered in your mind that you were handling a challenge at all!

As you remember your successes, you will feel more confident in your ability to handle challenges in the future.

From now on, every time you deal well with a potentially difficult situation, consciously add it to your mental data base. This will serve as a valuable resource for the future.

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book entitled "Marriage" - ArtScroll Publications, 1998, Chapter One, p.56)

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.
