I loved music and singing…but when I got to school, someone whispered to me that Music as a subject was for Sissies! I do not remember who that was, but that human being owes me an apology for having me believe them in toto! In music, we are taught how harmony creates beautiful music. When the instruments being played and the singers singing are in perfect sync, it inspires.Music can be used to change the mood in an instant…Music can be used to blend inspiration, enhance learning and relax the mind. One thing that molds music is harmony.
The very first lesson in learning to play guitar as a music instrument is to learn how to tune the guitar strings. You do not just pick the guitar and start strumming and expect inspiration.That makes you wonder…how come most people in life just move through un-tuned? If I was in church, I would ask you to “turn to your neighbor and ask them, ‘Are you tuned-up’?” (By the way, that is one part of church I do not like…turning to my ‘neighbor’ every minute and telling them something!!!)
So I went to the gym the other day…and this body builder insisted on having his music play in the intercom. I knew that the lyrics were not edifying me at all. Something was missing…or something was awfully wrong. Here I am jogging while being backed up by background music that was spitting out expletives!
My face was a frown. My mental strength to ignore the background music was under a big stretch of stress! So this is what I did. I decided that the very next day I will step into that Gym, I gonna arm myself with my very own Wifey’s jams…and that is exactly what I did.
Can you imagine working out while being inspired by your own wife’s songs? And am not just saying that because she is my wife…no, actually, that gal can sing! The woman is gifted!
But I digress!
The biggest reason as to why most people fail and fail and fail and never learn to succeed is because they are out of tune even before they get started! There is lacking harmony in their lives. Something is discordant in the whole make up. There is no harmony! So there you have it, we largely fail because we do not have harmony That is why we need training. Training is nothing but harmonizing!People fail because…
So there we have it. To be honest, I am still in the process. I always will be in the process. That is why sometimes I might experience some set back..but like a butterfly on its path, my progress to success is herky jerky…but I sure do know where I am going. Do you?
