Counterfeit money isn't real. Neither is counterfeit courage. Exaggerating one's brave and heroic acts in order to prove to others that one has courage, is a sign of a lack of courage. This applies all the more so, if someone were to fabricate an entire incident.
Ask yourself: Do I ever try to give others the impression that I have more courage than I really do? If the answer is, "Yes," see this as a sign that you need to increase genuine courage.
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.
