Utilize all that happens as an opportunity for growth. When your spouse makes a mistake, you have a chance to be compassionate and sensitive. You have a chance to judge favorably. You have a chance to fulfill the mitzvah of loving another person as yourself by treating your spouse the way you would wish to be treated when you make a mistake.
You have a chance to communicate love and concern. You have a chance to elevate your power of speech by helping to alleviate any distressful feelings over the mistake, instead of adding to it.
Self-confidence allows you to create goals -- and reach them. It lets you learn from your failures -- and move on to triumphs. It helps you
transform your potential into real achievement. With the help of Rabbi Zelig Pliskin, you will gain that self-confidence.
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: "Taking Action", "Happiness", "Kindness", "Courage", "Serenity", "Building Your Self-image" "Conversations with
Yourself" and "Marriage." These books are available at: Artscroll.com.
