You’re going to feel like giving up in the beginning. Just know that you don’t have to push yourself through it, but if you do, you may just astonish yourself by doing something you never thought you could do.Kana M.
Failure is OKAY. Sometimes you will work extremely hard at/for something and never make it. It’s important to push your boundaries, but also know what keeps you healthy and sane. It’s okay to switch directions if something is really not working. Know that one failure does not make you a failure as a person.Bonnie
Every success requires a certain amount of failures. Try not to fail the same way twice and forgive yourself for every failure you learn from.NICKELPUNK
When I was taking jazz lessons in Boston, I was complaining to my teacher that I wasn’t as good as I wanted to be and he said something like, “You will never be as good as you want to be so you should only be doing this if you enjoy the process”. The process of practicing and growing. I feel like that applies to much of life. Another useful lesson I got from my college classical trumpet teacher was, “You should be excited to discover your weaknesses. Because identifying them is what allows you to get past them”.SHAWN, NYC
Lean into discomfort, ask what it’s trying to tell you.
