What a wonderful piece of video, I recommend all who are breathing to see it. My passion for the piano certainly kept me enthralled; however the passion of pursuing your dreams and to make a difference certainly pushed me over.

I began to think of the way all my accomplishments have come about, and how they didn't. I then realized a thought that had been stewing in my mind lately. Instead of analyzing each step, each action and each reaction; focus on the goal and realize that you must just push forward. Believe in the end product with no doubt, despite what others say, if you are true they will begin to believe also.

So I am looking at my goals and going back to the basics, do and believe in what you're doing. Otherwise, you are just wasting time thinking of why your goals are not happening. We can all do it, but you must first allow yourself to believe you can.
