Throughout history how many wars have been fought because of beliefs? Throughout my life how much has been accomplished because of my beliefs? How much left undone because of my beliefs?
Always good to examine our beliefs; good to question and maybe even let them go.
I believed I had performance anxiety so I did. Until one day I was told to trust that music would be there if I was. I believed that the Alexander Technique was something that was valuable when done to me. Now I know that I can direct my thinking and achieve freedom and better use of myself. I believed I was not an improvisor, even though most of my compositions began with improvisation. Now I know I can also take this a step further and I am. Why? Because I believe. What do you believe? Are your beliefs holding you back? Or moving your forward?
