Here’s a terrific new article by Center Director, Dr Lorne Ladner that contains inspirational advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche:
Lorne interviewed Rinpoche for a forthcoming book about low self-esteem — something that many Westerners experience at some point in their lives. Rinpoche explains how to develop self-confidence and how by starting with small tasks, we can gradually work up to completing large projects that seemed impossible at the outset. Read the article, turn off the TV, and go out and change the world! : )
P.S. So my personal advice on this snowy day when we’re expected to receive record breaking amounts of snow is to get out and shovel a little bit at a time every few hours. Don’t wait until the snow stops and you have hundreds of pounds of snow to remove — that’s intimidating. And when you’ve finished shoveling your sidewalk, go help your neighbor.
