Keep Smiling, 4th Tishrei, 5771

To those who read “Keep Smiling” before, I hope you will enjoy reading them once again…
Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Schwartz

       Raise Yourself

Be a king or a queen. Be noble. Be gracious. Be kind and friendly. Have a generous word to say to someone — especially someone who would like to hear a generous word. Have money to give someone — especially someone who would like to receive money. Raise yourself beyond feelings of envy or resentment.

We often ask, “Why is the success I so want, not mine? Why am I not attracting the people I want to myself? Why do I not draw the money and promotion I want into my life?”

The reason we don’t draw all we want to ourselves, is because we aren’t yet the people we would like to be — we aren’t yet the people we know we can be. First, we need to be what we can be. Then, we’ll enjoy the privileges and pleasures we want.

Therefore, be a king or a queen. Be noble. Be gracious. Be kind and friendly. Have a generous word to say to someone who would like to hear a generous word. Have money to give someone who would like to receive some money. Raise yourself beyond feelings of envy or resentment.

Have a growth-filled, uplifting day!
