Henry David Thoreau wrote: “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them.”
Are you singing your song? Are you able to? If not, are you looking for a breakthrough in your life? Has it eluded you thus far?
Chances are that – like the rest of us – you have fallen into one of four common traps that impede progress.
But here comes Pesach to the rescue.
Pesach and Shevi’i shel Pesach, like all Jewish holidays, are not merely nice days of celebration. They bring us new energy, open new doors, reveal unprecedented opportunities – in short, they exist to transform our lives. And in particular, the Seventh Day of Pesach offers us a fresh new path for dealing with all our challenges.
As they say, half the cure is diagnosing the disease, and half the solution to any problem is knowing what it is. So we must first identify the factors that block us from growing and excelling. And this, too, is taught to us on this holiday. For on this day, 3324 years ago, an event transpired that illustrates the four most common mistakes that people make which prevent them from achieving a breakthrough.
This sermon examines these four mistakes, and presents a decisive strategy that can make all the difference. When properly applied, it can actualize our potential, transform our lives and help us sing our own special song.
