3 Key Takeaways:
- Reject the notion that you’re not good
enough! Success always comes with a little imposter
- Recognize that your choir
is a reflection of your spirit. If you don’t like
what you’ve seen or heard at any point this year, it’s time to look
in the mirror and take responsibility. Chances are it was your own
insecurity at play.
- Remember that you’ll never make everyone
happy, so don’t sweat it!
- Your choir, run by you, isn’t necessarily for everyone, and
- REsistance is natural in the lifecycle of making a difference.

Art, by Stephen Pressfield.

there and focus on those who share your values.

your student(s) “got it”, and pat yourself on the back!
