I grew up in a house jammed with music. Or drums, anyway. My dad was a drummer, so a drum set was part of the living room furniture and a part of my childhood.
In fourth grade, it was finally time to join the school band. My classmates and I lined up to select our weapons of choice.

We hear well intentioned advice about being more confident, which seems to erode our concept of humility – and vice versa. This keeps many people stuck. (“Who am I to say or do this?”)

People who had a choice!
