Pay Attention

Only you are responsible for your success or failure, happiness or sadness, stress or vitality, scarcity or abundance, appreciation or depression.
You choose what you experience.

And you choose by what you give attention to, what you think about, what you talk about and what you do or don’t do about it.

Remember this:

Ignore All The Discouragement

Rabbi Nachman teaches,
“When a person makes a start and tries to bring himself closer to God, he usually experiences a feeling of rejection. It is as if forces beyond his control are trying to prevent him from entering God’s service. Yet in actual fact this apparent rejection is nothing but a way of bringing him closer. But it takes tremendous determination not to become discouraged when you see that the days and years are passing and in spite of all your efforts to draw closer, you are still far away.

If You’ve Got It – Use It

A “wake up” article from here:

In this week’s Torah portion, God gives the specifications on how the High Priest’s clothing is to be made. Since this entire process requires very precise work, God wanted the clothing to be made by:

“…the wise-hearted people whom I have invested with… wisdom.” (Exodus 28:3)

A LIFE LESSON

God wanted those individuals whom He “invested with … wisdom” to be the ones in charge of making the High Priest’s clothing. What does it mean that God invested wisdom? It means exactly what is meant by any other investment – a return on the investment isn’t merely hoped for, but expected. God makes an investment in each and every one of us when He gives each of us a unique and special talent. Would you put all your money into a bank whose policy was never to pay any interest on the accounts? Of course not.

Universally, every person born to caring parents has heard that he is “unique in your own way.” As children, Continue reading

Shun a Gossip

One who degrades another person is a fool, and a man of understanding will make himself deaf to his words(Proverbs 11:12).
When people feel good about themselves, they have no need to enhance their self-evaluation by berating others. Those who do so are exposing their own poor self-worth and to what extremes they will go in order to achieve any feeling of worth.
Solomon points out that the one who listens to such prattle is no better than the speaker. Why would anyone waste time listening to such gossip and slander unless it served some purpose? A person with good self-esteem would turn a deaf ear to such talk. Furthermore, one who listens to gossip provides the talker with an audience, thereby actually encouraging more gossip.
Solomon calls a wise person “a man of understanding.” The wisdom here consists of understanding the psychology of gossips. They need to berate others for their own self-worth, and they are not above lying to disparage others. You can be certain that the person who speaks badly about someone else to you will eventually speak badly about you to someone else. The only approach, therefore, is to completely shun a gossip.
In his epochal work on lashon hara (gossip), the Chofetz Chaim states that the transgression of listening to lashon hara is every bit as serious as speaking it. If someone tries to make a listener out of you, leave, or at least politely say that you are not interested in the subject.
