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.
