"Life is 10% of What Happens to Me and 90% of How I React to It" - CHUCK SWINDOLL
Everyday, every single one of us has things happen to us that are out of our control.
These things range from unexpected emails, to being stuck in traffic, to planes being delayed all the way to family members and friends being hit by tragedy.
A lot of the time, there’s nothing we can do about these things, but we let them distract us from our goals and dreams.
Playing the victim didn’t work when you were learning how to master your instrument (days of zero practice didn’t help you get better did they?), and allowing things you can’t control to step in the way of your ambitions won’t help you take inspired action.
If life is constantly happening to you and you find yourself constantly making excuses and putting your ideas on hold, perhaps it’s time to have a look at how you’re reacting to life.
Your thoughts and words create your reality, so use what you know from your life as a practicing musician, and take ownership of your reactions. ________________________________________________
