December 15, 2012 at 3:19 PMHow many times have you had someone tell you,"I could never do that; I don't have enough patience." ? It is probably meant to be a complement, but I think it's a tragic confession.
But just think what the average person could do if they just had a little patience!
People don't want to work hard on something to improve...
Music is less and less popular as a class choice among highschoolers according to high school music teacher.
There is something nice in pursuing a goal and improve always a little bit (and very much after every few years).
This is call acheiving oneself and something.
I may not be the 1/100 as talented as my idols but not even their best recordings can play my violin for me! Their hands are not mine lol
One has to do something by themselves to truely be happy and proud of them... and patience is the key element :)
