Thank you Rabbi Tzvi for reminding us that when we give up control, we gain a lot more than you lose! Remembering that we "drive the bus," makes for a much smoother ride.

Inspirational words of wisdom
Truly inspirational. Both at work and at home I find myself 'taking control'. It's a double edge sword: taling control ensures productivity/results,, but when results are out of your control you find yourself running into a wall. This video speaks to me in every way. Thank you for sharing.

Sooo true. Good to be reminded to keep the right perspective - especially during tough times. Its not about us - its about us learning how to give the reigns back to the Almightly

It's a huge level to be on.....to just let go. Something for us all to strive for, especially in the month of Elul !! Thanks for the invaluable message & Shana Tova

This video totally summed up what I figured out not to long ago. I work for a minimum wage paying job with tips. Needless to say the pay check does not even come close to meeting my needs and sometimes the tips are not much better. So every month I was completely stressed out trying to figure out how I was going to make the ends meet. Then one day I just decided that I was not going to worry about it any more. I like the Rabbi looked up and told Hashem my needs and finally admitted to him and myself that he was in control. From that day forward my needs are always met. It may be at the last minute and most of the time I do still worry about things but never to the point I did before giving it to Hashem. Thank you so much Rabi for a wonderful video.
