In the entire universe, no one will ever have your song to sing. Through all eternity it is yours alone. Your primary task in Life is to learn your song and to sing it to perfection. ~Anonymous
It can feel very discouraging to heed the whisperings of our heart and soul, trying to follow through only to see that there seems to be a lot of competition in the world.
And that competition seems to be so much better at “it” than we are.
Especially when the people who are better at “it” than we are happen to be deemed top experts in the field and are lauded in all the media outlets. They then get to write books that stay on the bestseller list for months, they appear on the top talk shows, and they may even get to meet the President!
It’s enough to make us want to pack up and head home and never venture out again!
But if we look at it a little closer, we’d see that there isn’t just one expert or one person seeming to dominate the field, there are many. And, instead of that being discouraging, it’s encouraging.
It’s encouraging because, if you look a little closer, each person has a slightly different focus and shading to what they’re saying. And each experts’ message appeals to a different audience.
In any area of life, we can see this. For instance many people love singers. But some love jazz singers such as Ella Fitzgerald and Louie Armstrong. Others love opera, still others love country or pop or hip-hop. And, on top of that, some people love to sing music, some like to listen to it, some like to play music, and others like to dance to music! So many different tastes and desires that create numerous opportunities for a variety of artists!
Your homework today is to recognize that, regardless of the experts in your field and regardless of how renowned they may be, there is still plenty of room for you to express the dream in your heart and soul. There are people waiting for your type of music. Only you can touch them with your particular song!
Sing your song—sing it loud! Let your music out into the world!
You can do it, I know you can!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
