• Are you going to finish strong?

    in Motivational Minutes

    Brought tears to my eyes…

    He’s joking around in the beginning but around a minute into it, he gets serious. If he can have this much hope and joy for life, then what excuse do most of us have?

    The following two tabs change content below.
    Hi, I'm Jermaine Griggs, founder of this site. We teach people how to express themselves through the language of music. Just as you talk and listen freely, music can be enjoyed and played in the same way... if you know the rules of the "language!" I started this site at 17 years old in August 2000 and more than a decade later, we've helped literally millions of musicians along the way. Enjoy!

    Attention: To learn more about this, I recommend our 500+ page course: The "Official Guide To Piano Playing." Click here for more information.

    This is a great example to follow! Most of the time we complain becasuse of misfortune, but not realize that there are others people ini worse conditions thatn we have. That’s because we focuse only in our live and not think about more options to Finish Strong!

    Any thing in live is possible! We need two things to aploy to accomplish any goal:
    a) Believe in Jesus Christ and understand that through him any thing is possible.
    b) Be confidence we ourself and believe that at the real end we are going to be successful.

    So music players! Beginners or not please, do not give up! Continue to practice even taking time from where you do not have and you will never regret! But about think and practice what those two statements above say.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2009 for every one!

    God Bless You!

    Having fallen in a BIG way flat on my face, and feeling like everyone was pushing to keep me down with their feet, I can understand and empathize with what this gentleman is saying. Sometimes it feels like no hope for tomorrow – whether it is singing, playing the piano, starting a business, or any thing that takes courage to step out of one’s comfort zone and do. He is right. If you never get up, you’ll never walk, play that piano, sing, start that business, etc. Enough of listening to people ridiculing you. Enough of people (especially yourself) telling you that you can’t – you’re not good enough, not smart enough, not fast enough, not able. I’m going to walk! I’m going to run! And by God’s grace, I’m going to fly!!! Thanks for sharing this video – It’s a 5 star!!!!!!

    After watching this video I feel ashamed that I feel so sorry for myself and my lot, when there are people out there with a hundred times the problems I have and they can just pick themselves up. WELL SO CAN I (Now)
    Thank You

    Dear Jermaine-thank you so much for sharing this video. I watched the faces of the kids in the audience and you could see the light dawn as they realized that whatever trial and tribulations they were going through were as nothing compared to Nick’s struggle and triumph over his limitations. Most days I am grateful for what I have, but sometimes reminders like this are needed to bring words of praise to our lips. Again, thank you for the powerful reminder.

    I like your posture in this article. It is actually a instructive journal that is helpful for us to recognise.
