When you have an important question, but no one available to ask it to, ask yourself: "If I were to ask an expert for advice, what would he tell me?"
Imagining what someone without bias would say, helps you make wiser decisions. This technique will help you access your latent critical thinking ability. In this way, you can have a personal advisor with you at all times!
(Chochmah U'mussar, vol.1, p.21; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.265)
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.
