What would happen if you radically shifted your goals the next time you play piano for an audience?
What would happen if you didn’t worry so much about what everyone thinks of your performance and simply tried to enjoy yourself.
Enjoy the music, enjoy the fact that the piano can make such beautiful sounds, and enjoy the fact that everyone there loves music.
Here’s a little secret: If you can learn to enjoy yourself while playing piano in public, even just a little, you’ll do better in a lot of situations in your life.
You’ll have fun giving presentations in school and at work, you’ll be more effective when speaking in public, and you’ll get a better response from your audiences.
Yes, we need to work hard and prepare thoroughly. But when the actual moment comes, make sure you’re enjoying yourself, even just a little bit 🙂
