Check out this video of young Green Day playing at a high school gig:

Recently I also saw some young days photos of the Iron Maiden when they were kids and man it really is amazing when you think more about it. For example above we can see Green Day playing at a high school with bare minimum of gear and everything. The truth is that we ALL (musicians) start at the same place and to through the similar path. In the video above we can hear a young band playing their songs and they rock. You can hear that they are really good and love what they are doing even with very few people in the audience. They did what they loved, played all the gigs and look what they did. I saw them live few years back here in Belgrade, Serbia on a huge stage and they've put on a great show. Now what is amazing is that if you'd tell those kids at that time about what they are about to accomplish and do with their music and where it would take them it would probably seem over the top, crazy and impossible. But, they did it! I really believe that nothing is impossible, especially when it comes to music. We just need to believe and dream. Worst thing is to get stuck dreaming and never give it a try. As long as you have dreams, you can do it you just need to try and give your best.

I think that the above video is very humbling and gives a good perspective on some things as sometimes when we look at successful musicians, there is a tendency to skip or forget how they got there. They didn't teleport there or just miraculously did it rather they must have gone through all the practice, ups and downs, frustration, crappy gigs, composing tons of (bad) songs and then more practice till they got where they wanted to go or dreamed of. Everything is in our own hands.

Now another video here:

There we can see a 7 years old Novak Djokovic, currently ranked number 1 tennis player in the world. What is noticeable is that he really knows what he'd like to do. He used to dream about the Wimbledon title and would practice lifting the make believe trophy. At that time, it (becoming world number 1) was something which most if not everyone would consider impossible but yet, he did it. How? Practice!

Where did he start? At the same place everyone else did.


Here are a few photos from my personal archive (can you find me in them? smile.gif ) :

In this one (if I remember correctly), we should be able to see Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki both ATP ranked players.

I think that there is young Novak Djokovic in this one as well.

Both are from tennis tournaments organized by Tennis association of Serbia played at the coolest courts in Belgrade. Those courts are now completely rebuilt, owned by Novak and bear his name. If you'd tell that kid back then that he would make it, well - it would seem impossible right? It's NOT! smile.gif

This is just something to think about, I hope that it will inspire you as much as it inspires me when thinking about practice, music and making progress. The only wrong thing we can do is not to dream big and try.
