    Honesty in a World of Deception

    Honesty in a World of Deception

    Why be honest when we see deception everywhere we turn? We all consider truth and honesty as true virtues, and no one likes being called a liar. So why is it that so many people lie? And why is it so easy to lie? Is deception a natural part of the world order, or is it an aberration? Can we maintain our integrity and succeed in a duplicitous world?

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson as he, in his inimitable style, digs into the core roots of deceit and deception. If all of existence and each single being began as one unified, seamless entity (one cell), how did duality and dissonance come to be? By understanding the origins of duplicity we learn how to counter its far-reaching effects, and discover ways to deceive deception and bring unity, honesty and truth into a false world

    Fear is the Enemy of Success

    Fear is the Enemy of Success

    Fear is one of the most powerful and misunderstood forces in our lives. It's formidable impact on virtually all our decisions, and lack of decisions, is compounded by the fact that fear is invisible and silent. You can't see or touch it. And you certainly can't measure it. Even though we feel, at times, palpable fright, most of fear's effects on our behavior cannot easily be traced to fear. We often justify our indecisiveness and lack of commitment with other reasons and excuses than fear, even though fear may be the root cause of our tentativeness.



    Can we quantify how much fear impedes our ability to grow and succeed? How can we overcome our fears?



    Please join Rabbi Jacobson as he takes us on a journey into the roots of the abyss called fear, where does it originate and how can we reverse its effects on us. Discover ways to counter fear and develop the courage embedded within your spirit to free yourself of fears tentacles. Learn how you are never alone, and that there are powerful forces that travel with you even into the darkest shadows.

    How to Forgive When You Cannot Forget

    How to Forgive When You Cannot Forget

    Many of us carry painful memories of hurtful experiences in our pasts. Some of these memories remain etched in our psyches, at times even haunting and disrupting our lives -- in ways that we are aware of, and often unaware of. How many of our emotional fears, insecurities and trust issues are a result of old scars?

    How then can we move on from these deep wounds? Can we free ourselves from the tentacles of difficult past experiences? Is it possible to forgive if you cannot forget?

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson as he tackles these big questions, and offers a method and formula for not allowing painful memories define who you are; not allowing your past define your future. Discover the power of forgiveness -- how it is not just about forgiving another, but forgiving yourself; how it allows you to transcend your experiences and achieve closure even if you may never forget what hurt you. Learn how to access dimensions within yourself that help you liberate your spirit from the forces that keep it trapped, and spread your wings to scale new heights.

    The Art of Connection and Communication: How to Listen and Be Heard

    The Art of Connection and Communication: How to Listen and Be Heard

    Lying at the heart of all relationships -- personal, social, professional, political -- is communication. The manner in which spouses, parents and children, neighbors, friends, co-workers, employers, employees, communities and nations speak and listen (or don't) to each other carries the key to thriving, lasting, and healthy connections. Even when there is concern and love between different people or groups, very often they are lacking the tools to properly express their feelings.

    In effect then, mastering the art of communication is the defining blueprint that leads to family, domestic, national and global peace, harmony, and tranquility.

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this important, fundamental talk on the secret to true and effective communication. Discover that communicating is more about connecting and building trust than it is about expressing thoughts; speaking is more about listening than about voicing opinions; more about empathy than data; and the most successful way to be heard is to listen. Remember, people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.

    Self-Motivation Tips: How to Get out Your Comfort Zone on a Consistent Basis

    Self-Motivation Tips: How to Get out Your Comfort Zone on a Consistent Basis

    Ahh. Comfort zones. They sound so... comforting. Do you anyone that likes to leave their comfort zone? And yet, every form of growth is dependent on going out of comfort zones. As long as you stay safe in your predictable and conventional routines, nothing new will be born. That is why it is so difficult to change and break out of our habits and patterns. The inertia of the status quo generates enormous force. But being an invisible power, concealed in lethargy, we grossly underestimate its impact on holding us back from movement and change.

    Is there a way to motivate and propel yourself out of your comfort zone and reach great new heights?

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this inspiring lesson offering methods and tools to break out of your trappings and discover new openings and possibilities. And not just on a temporary basis, but in a consistent and sustainable fashion. Find out how you carry within yourself inherent strengths that can challenge your tendency to stagnate. Learn how to spread your wings and soar to unprecedented horizons.
