Meet Hetty Kate.
Hetty was just leaving the choir I sing with as I joined it in 2007. She had worked for many years on her musical skills and was incredibly good. She had spent a couple of years with the choir to gain the experience of performing within a group and expanding her musical experience.
She would always talk about her dream of being a Jazz singer, singing with well known and regarded jazz musicians and going on tours singing.
Last week when Wifey and I were in Hobart, it was fabulous to see this article in the paper. Its references to how she has performed on four continents, released six albums and sung with James Morrison and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra shows that her dream is now her reality.
I’ve seen the same kind of thing with my clients.
But it MUST start with a dream. Something that inspires you and keeps you going when things get rough (as they will).
So what’s your dream? What are you aiming for?
PS Disney did a great song about this on their Tangled film. You can see some of here
