10 Steps To Greatness

Avigdor Miller

I found the following list in the form of a magnet on a babysitting employer’s fridge, and I was inspired enough to copy it down. Now, looking at it again makes me want to share these amazing ideas with the rest of you.

By Rabbi Avigdor Miller, ztl.

1) Think about Olam Haba (The World To Come) for 30 seconds or more each day.

2) Say “I love you” to G-d privately.

3) Do an anonymous act of kindness.

4) Encourage another person.

5) Think about yesterdays actions.

6) Make all of you actions Lsheim Shomayim (for the sake of Heaven); say it once.

7) Look at a face. Think, “I see the image of G-d.”

8) Give someone a full smile.

9) Spend 30 seconds in the morning appreciating your clothing and say out loud “Malbish Arumim” (a blessing that thanks G-d for clothing the naked)

10) Sit briefly on the floor and mourn the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash (Holy Temple).

Keep UNraveling!
