Jewish Stories to Build Courage – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Esther Sutton   Two girls stood behind the curtain at their ballet recital. “I’m next. I can’t do it. I just can’t,” one girl said to another. Her friend responded, “Of course you can. What is stopping you?” “Don’t you remember last year’s show? I tripped and fell and what if it happens again? I ruined it for everyone last time and I don’t want that to happen again,” she explained. Her friend responded, “I think what you lacked was confidence. You’re just afraid of messing up again. But the most amazing people faced challenges. You’ll never improve if you don’t face challenges. The girl responded with a smile and said, “You’re right. I won’t make same mistake again. I just need confidence.” There was an announcement for the next contestant. Her friend quickly said, “You can do it. I believe you can and you believe you can. Now say,”I can.” The girl repeated, “I can,” as she walked on stage and shined with her amazing confidence. She ran off stage back to her friends who was waiting to tell her, “I knew you could. You just needed to believe it yourself.
