    Hi Barrie,

    I enjoyed your story. My gosh what a confidence basher you had. But we all had them in our past. What we need to do is to overcome all those negative bashers from the past. I am so glad to know you did and took the plunge to be doing what you desire. That makes a happy life! Good for you.

    We all have certain ambitions that we may have not applied in our lives, but one we do, it is like taking off chains. We become uplifted and happy.

    Persistence does pay off!

    -Donna

    Hi Barrie, It’s sad that we have people in this world that are discouraging to us at pivotal moments in our lives. Fortunately, you’ve been able to come back to that thing you love, Music. This is a very inspirational post that will help lift anyone up. Thanks for writing this. It’s a great way to start the week off. I’m glad you were able to reawaken your love of music and thrive in it.

    Wow those were pretty heavy blows to throw at a young person’s passion. No wonder they brought you down.

    We all must work hard to build ourselves and others up. That is why personal development is so essential.

    Thanks for sharing some of your music.

    So glad you got that fire and passion back!

    Too many people never do get it back.

    You are certainly a wonderful inspiration today to many of your friends

    Mary

    Oh Barry, what an inspiring story!

    It takes a lot of courage to open up like this and discuss mistakes or weaknesses (which we all have but often find difficult to discuss). I’m so proud of you! You have come so far!

    I’m especially proud that you were able to see that a negative frame of mind can be so harmful to you as a person and you turned all of that around, no matter what anyone thinks.

    I have to check out your videos! Thank you for sharing all of this with us!

    Deborah

    A very fabulous post Barrie,
    There is a saying that “If you desire it so much, you will find a way but if its not important to you, you will find an excuse” and this is so true.

    Indeed, persistence is really one of the best formulas to achieving greatness. If you really want something, you must desire it so much that no hurdle, distractions or difficulty will be strong enough to stop you.

    Therefore, just stay focused, persist at your goals and at the end of the day, you will be happy you did.
