Overcoming Life's Disappointments

Start your week off with this talk from Rabbi Harold Kushner, the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People. Rabbi Kushner discusses one of his latest books Overcoming Life's Disappointments. He uses stories of Moses to illustrate ways of confronting moments in our lives which don't live up to our dreams. He emphasizes that without failures we can't really have successes, and that those who fail to have disappointments in life are often those who failed to try to realize their dreams. This talk is available on streaming video through FORA.tv.

Overcoming Life's Disappointments

From Harold S. Kushner, the author of "When Bad Things Happen to Good People," an audiobook that shows us how to be our best selves even when things don't turn out as we had hoped--that is, how we can overcome life's disappointments.

Kushner turns to the experience of Moses to find the requisite lessons of strength and faith. Moses towers over all others in the Old Testament: he is the man on the mountaintop to whom God speaks with unparalleled intimacy, and he leads his people out of bondage. But he is also deeply human, someone whose soaring triumphs are offset by frustration and longing: his people ignore his teachings, he is denied entrance to the Promised Land, his family suffers. But he overcomes.

Through the example of Moses' remarkable resilience, we learn how to weather the disillusionment of dreams unfulfilled, the pain of a lost job or promotion, a child's failures, divorce or abandonment, and illness. We learn how to meet all disappointments with faith in ourselves and the future, and how to respond to heartbreak with understanding rather than bitterness and despair.

This is an audiobook of spiritual wisdom--as practical as it is inspiring.

Available on MP3 Download.
