A treasury of sayings, teachings, parables and stories by the outstanding Chassidic sage, mystic and visionary, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810), whose message of faith, hope, courage, simplicity and joy is essential to each one of us and essential to the whole world.
Translated by Rabbi Avraham Greenbaum
THE ESSENTIAL RABBI NACHMAN
Faith in yourself
You must have faith in yourself!
You must have enough faith in G-d’s goodness to believe that you are important to Him. Have faith that you too are precious in G-d’s eyes. So great is G-d’s goodness that each and every person is great and important in His eyes.
Being humble does not mean you must put yourself in a state of constricted consciousness. Constantly ask G-d to bring you to true humility and to have faith in yourself. Some Tzaddikim suffer opposition only because they do not have faith in themselves!

“And the way to sing the song of joy is by seeking the good in all people, especially in ourselves. Each good point is one more note in the song of life!”
