A piano will just sit there and let you bang away at the keys and make a lot of noise, or allow you to use it to product beautiful music. In fact, it’s like that with every musical instrument. The instrument doesn’t care what you do to it. The difference is the musician who approaches the instrument.
The quality of music an instrument will yield is based solely on how the musician approaches the instrument, with regard to experience, skill, desire, passion, and attitude. The more of these qualities the musician approaches the instrument with, the better the quality of music the instrument will return and, in the long run, the better the musician will become.
I think it’s a lot like that with life. A significant portion of what we receive from life is largely dependent on how we are approaching life. Imagine how different a person’s life would be if they chose to approach their life with:
- Eagerness to learn
- A positive attitude
- An expectation of good things to come
- A bent toward action
- A mindset of joy, abundance, and love.
Versus an approaching life with:
- An expectation of bad things to come
- A mindset of pessimism, and fear
So what are you receiving from life on a regular basis? Are you receiving beautiful music or harsh disorderly noise?
If you don’t like what you’re receiving from life, consider changing your approach.
