Winston Churchill Never Give UpRun before you walk

Women running

As humans, it’s natural to want to run before we can walk.

Sometimes the bridge just seems too far.

Maybe you’ve come to a point of giving up and are deciding not to cross the bridge at all!

Would you let a fellow student give up?

After you’ve watched her put the time and effort in?

Heard her play well at her level. Seen her happy playing. Watch her stumble at a few blocks.

But you know it can get better for her. Now think of yourself and don’t do it.

You think I can’t do this.

Well, you can.

Take a breather.

Get some perspective and continue.

It is possible to look past the “can’t” and just get on with it.

With a little patience and thought you can go on.

To finish something you started.


Moments of frustration

frustration

Think of something else you learned and had moments of frustration – driving lessons?

Driving is about co-ordination, coordinating multiple facets at a time to get the vehicle from A to B in one piece.

You don’t jump in a car one day and know how to do it.

There is a fundamental practical part to driving but what about all the theory that goes with it.

As an adult that has driven for many years, we almost do it on auto-pilot. But you had to start somewhere.

Learning the piano at any stage will be the same rocky road, no one says it will be easy.

A testing one on the ups but a pleasurable one on the downs.

But as we’ve deduced you have chosen to learn this beautiful instrument so keep going, do not throw what you have done so far away.

You will regret it in later years.

You have put so much into it thus far.

Please keep going.

Never give up on a passion.

Or what has become one.

It’s a beautiful skill you have. Many people don’t put the effort in but so wish they could do what you do.
