Tiny Changes #18: pick a hero
We all have heros. They can be great motivators.
For Joseph Schooling, it was Michael Phelps. He met him in 2008 when he was 13, and just beat him in Rio. You can read about the entire story here.
Who is your hero? Is it a soprano with an international career? A music teacher from your high school whom you revere? An athlete who overcame incredible odds? Choose one.
Now learn about them. How did they get where they are? What did they do in the practice room, in school, what auditions did they win, etc.? Learn from their successes and failures, and realize that you can learn similarly, too.
Now become your own hero. Someone may well be nipping at your heels, and you don't even know it yet. Let that motivate your work.
Today we will all be together in Hulsey Recital Hall. Bring your calendars! We have items to discuss.
