Show Notes

5 year-old Mia learnt how to play piano, she kiiind of thrived. Then her sister joined and she uuhhh pivoted, QUICK. So, is piano just not Mia's sister's cup of tea or did she not give it a fair shot yet? (I swear this isn't me trying to diss my own sister.)

The point is, sometimes we may close ourselves off to a new experience or may give up too soon. How do we know when we haven't tried hard enough vs. when we're ACTUALLY not good at something?
