Favorite Self Confidence Quote
Do you know why we find the violin such a beautiful instrument? It’s because it’s slightly out of tune with itself. It’s dissonant. It’s imperfect. And we find that attractive, we find perfection didactic.
So, be imperfect. Don’t try to be perfect ‘cause you’ll never ever ever get there.
Find the beauty in your imperfection. And that’s where you will excel.
