Monday Morning Motivation! #8

Monday Morning Motivation!

Today’s motivational quote is about something that everyone should take a moment to think about because it is relatable in every aspect of your life – what happens when something doesn’t go your way. You didn’t get that job you were hoping for, you didn’t nail that audition, you didn’t get that call back, your relationship isn’t working out, etc.

I know that in my life, earlier on in my vocal journey, I wasn’t picked for solos in choir at college. So-and-so who always got the solos, “always-got-the-solos”. I wondered if I changed an aspect of my personality, stayed after rehersal to chat up the conductor, or worked and practiced harder that maybe I would be selected.

Looking back on it now, there was nothing that I could have done, as the conductor had his favorites, and I was just not one of them. Also, college was not my time to shine. Something better was waiting for me. My quest to better myself and my voice has lead me all over the world, learning from master teachers, and in turn sharing my knowledge to my students…that has value.

I hope you enjoy today’s quote below.

“I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         –Hermann Hasse, Siddhartha
