Cherishing Opportunities

When someone deeply loves another person, he cherishes opportunities to express that love by coping with hardships for the sake of that person.
Similarly, a person who loves the Almighty will cherish periods of suffering as opportunities to express his love and devotion.

Jim Collins, one of the great writers on leadership, puts it well:

The signature of the truly great versus the merely successful is not the absence of difficulty, but the ability to come back from setbacks, even cataclysmic catastrophes, stronger than before ... The path out of darkness begins with those exasperatingly persistent individuals who are constitutionally incapable of capitulation. It's one thing to suffer a staggering defeat… and entirely another to give up on the values and aspirations that make the protracted struggle worthwhile. Failure is not so much a physical state as a state of mind; success is falling down, and getting up one more time, without end.

  On Thursday night 12/26/13, I got to reconnect with one my main inspirations of Positiveness and Happiness, the powerful Rabbi Zelig Plizkin. He is still at, making people think about their happiness. At one time I thought it would be worthwhile translating his Religious concepts into modern spirituality. It is still a worthwhile Idea and I do it in my own way every day.
