One Choice

 

One Choice

One…
One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,
And…one choice can change your life.
Think about that. One choice, just one, can change your life forever. Simply put, your life today is what your choices have made it, but with new choices, you can change directions this very moment.

One Choice

That’s what this powerful, life-changing book is all about…how we’re always one choice away from changing our life.
In One Choice, you’ll meet people from all walks of life who made life-changing choices, whether it’s switching careers, losing weight, finding financial freedom, adopting a child, giving back to others and many more. I wrote the book with one goal in mind…to give people ideas and courage to choose better lives for themselves.
For me, the idea of changing your life with a single choice is highly motivational. It offers tremendous hope, regardless of your circumstances, for a better tomorrow. And, that’s why the book is filled with inspirational stories from people, like you, who had the courage to make that choice and to change their lives forever.
You’ll be inspired and you’ll be motivated by their personal stories. You’ll think, if they can do it…why can’t I?
Here’s a "snapshot" of the table of contents so you can see the themes behind the stories…

Increase Your Empathy

Increase Your Empathy

In order to empathize with the suffering of others, make mental images. When someone experiences suffering and pain, make a picture in your mind as if it were happening to you. Whatever you would want other people to do for you in such a situation, you should do for others.

This is the way to master the attribute of compassion and sharing the burden of others. Compassion may cause us a bit of pain, but it enables us to alleviate the far greater pain of others. Because when someone sees that you are suffering with him or her, it helps alleviate some of their pain.

Today, think of someone you know who is in great pain. Then ask yourself how such a person would most appreciate your help.

(see Rabbi Simcha Zissel Ziv – Chochmah Umussar, vol.1, p.2)
