If you are in my FaceBook community you probably already know that very recently I started taking piano lessons.

(if you are not in my facebook group yet, click here, it’s awesome 😀👍)

I had my first lesson a couple of weeks ago.

I didn’t even get to touch the piano – that’s how very far at the beginning I am.

I was set to the task of learning notes, getting to grips with tempo and trying to read sheet music.

It would be fair to say that currently I have zero skill in this area.

So it is a challenge, to put it mildly.

I have always wanted to learn the piano – so cool to be able to sit down and play something beautiful or entertain with a fun song.

But for some reason I have lived under the assumption that playing an instrument was not for me. (my family is not musically inclined, we are more sporty by nature)

Then I had a conversation with my (very musically talented) brother-in-law.

He said “of course you can do it – you just have to change your mindset” 

-“anyone can learn to play an instrument if they practice”

My mouth dropped, I slapped my forehead ——— of course!

It is all in my mind.

How had I missed that?

I spend most of my working life helping people to remove mindset blocks and take action towards their goals …

Yet I had been completely blind to my own block.

This story I was telling myself that I could never master an instrument.

So I decided to change the story 

from “I could never …..”

To “with practice I can do this!”

And even though at the moment I can barely imagine ever being able to sit in front of a keyboard with confidence and play something that anyone would actually want to listen to,

I now believe it is possible.

And that makes all the difference.

So I will learn and practice and a year from now I will be able to play that song.

Watch this space 😀🎼🎹
