“Don’t die with your music still in you.”

Last night I attended a lecture at Westminster Choir College delivered by Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Zander is a conductor but it’s not about the music – it’s about life. The talk centered around the topic of The Art of Possibility, which is also the title of his best-selling book.

There are two worlds, according to Zander…the downward spiral and radiating possibility.

The downward spiral is a hopeless world of limiting beliefs, while the world of radiating possibility is filled with glorious opportunities.

What determines which world we live in?

The choices we make. Our perceptions of the situations we are in. Here’s a secret – all of us can change what world we live in at any time. And Zander says all life unfolds from that.

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.”

I know something about you…

You don’t like to go outside of your comfort zone.

Read the quote at the top of this message again.

Are you going to die with music still in you?

Are you going to finish a match with shots still left in you?

Go all out.

And know that you have unlimited potential.

Thanks for reading.
