Challenge: Write a short paragraph (100 words or less) daily on a topic beginning with the sequential letter of the alphabet.
As a singing teacher, I eliminate two words from my students’ vocabularies as soon as possible: Can’t and impossible. Anything’s possible, if we only believe in ourselves and our abilities; sometimes it may take someone a bit longer to reach the goal, but if they’re willing to learn and be persistent, they can reach any goal they set. The only students I’ve ever had who couldn’t reach goals were unteachable ones; those who came to a teacher so they could claim training, but weren’t willing to be challenged. But I’m teachable – I’ve learned not to squander time with such students.
