Daily Lift #975

Have Courage to Change

Whenever we have repeated a pattern many times, it is difficult to change. But all patterns ultimately can in fact be changed. It is a question of having a clear goal - and then being motivated to take action.

It is easier to change patterns when two parties are willing to work together. If you are the only one, it takes more strength, more courage, and more resilience. That's why cooperation is essential in a marriage.

The Almighty leads a person on the path on which he wants to go. May He give you the wisdom to make the right decisions and choices, and the strength and courage to follow through!

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book entitled "Marriage" - ArtScroll Publications, 1998, Chapter One, p.64)

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.
