"Building Your Self-Image and the self-image of others"

This series can change your life. And the life of your spouse, your children, your friends and your employees.

Every success story begins with a positive attitude. This series will show you how you can maintain a winning state of mind --- and how you
can instill a sense of confidence in those around you. And that is sure to improve your life; physically, emotionally and spiritually.

For decades, Rabbi Zelig Pliskin has been motivating people to believe in themselves and to realize their potential. As a counselor, he has
transformed the lives of hundreds; through his books and lectures, he has motivated and inspired many thousands. Rabbi Pliskin explains the
emotional dynamics of success. He shares insights and stories. Most importantly, he gives us practical tips on how to believe in ourselves
--- and how we can get others to believe in themselves. From recognizing
our abilities and appreciating our talents to coping with setbacks and
and dealing with failures, this series has it all.
