Ain't Nobody Like You!

What do you call a monkey who copies from his friends test paper? A Cheetah.

Many people are like monkeys. Monkey see monkey do. We must be original. Rav Solovetchik says that Tzelem Elokim means that just like Hashem is completely unique so must we be. We must forge our own unique path in Avodas Hashem using the special mixture of talents and abilities that only we have!!

Anochi Hashem ElokeCHA - your personal G-d. First "zeh keli vánvehu" this is MY G-d and I will glorify him, and only then "Elokei Avi Váromimenhoo" - the G-d of my father and I will exalt Him. Avraham was call Avraham HaIvri - He was May'ever Echad [on one side] and the rest of the world was on the other side.

Enough of the herd mentality. Follow Hashem - not the masses!! You can do it! Be confident in your abilities. There is nobody like you. You will discover qualities that you have that you never knew about!

Love and Blessings
