I’ve decided at the ripe old age of 56 that I am going to teach myself how to play the drums. You see we just bought a drum set for our 16 year old son’s recent birthday. I played acoustic guitar a bit when I was in high school. I had hoped to be able to play an electric guitar by the time I was 50, but life happened. Now my son, who has taught himself how to play guitar, is teaching himself how to play the drums. I would learn how to play guitar now, but then I would have to have short fingernails, and that ain’t happening.
From my experience in life I can testify to the fact that those that progressed, advanced, succeeded, etc. were those that did not act like they knew everything. As a matter of fact, they were the single most annoying person to be around. I have spent considerable amount of time in deep contemplation about this topic lately and have come to a conclusion: acting like you have life all figured out and you do not need nor ask for help or advice is a treacherous row to hoe.
It wreaks of arrogance and conceit and is NOT confidence in any form, shape or fashion!!! Let me repeat myself…acting like you have life all figured out and that you do not need anyone’s help is not confidence! Practice humility and seek out those with more experience.
This article talks about why not having everything completely figured out is okay!
