Once you master the art of self-reliance, you can achieve as far as your desire will take you, and as deep as your belief in your own G-d-given powers will allow.
So, wave goodbye to your former wimpy, people-pleasing meek self, and burst forth confidently as an assertive winner with healthy ego-strength.
Self Confidence: Based on the Teachings of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov and of His Student Rabbi Nossan of Breslov, by Mohorosh HaKodesh Breslov
“The whole earth is filled with His glory” (Isaiah 6: 3)
The main thing is to nullify every one of your personality traits. You must strive to do so until you have totally obliterated your ego, rendering it into absolute nothingness before G-d.
Begin with one trait and annihilate it completely. Then work on your other traits, one at a time, until they are totally nonexistent.
As you annihilate your ego, G-d’s glory will begin to shine through and be revealed.
