Find your own melody

Every individual must find his own “melody” – his own special talents, abilities, and character traits that enable him to accomplish his own unique mission on earth.

Stop and think: Three times a day, we begin our prayers by appealing to the “G-d of Abraham, G-d of Isaac and G-d of Jacob.” Why don’t we just say “G-d of Abraham, Isaac and  Jacob.”  The answer is that each of our forefathers served Hashem in his own special way, without comparing himself to anyone else. Each had a special task on earth. Yet each was magnificent tzaddik in his own right.”

Once a person realizes that he has his own special “melody,” he doesn’t have to step to anyone else’s cadence and he doesn’t need to compare himself with anyone else. He serves Hashem according to his special talents and abilities.
