You may think that people who came to listen to you play are here because of you but make no mistake they ALL came because they feel you can lead them where THEY want to go.
Slight difference - big change in the perspective of how we approach our work.
They are here not because of you but because of themselves. If you can provide a guidance of some sort or leadership or charisma - they will embrace you and won't let go.
You know why?
Because you help them FEEL better people and because you actually help them BECOME better people.
And you do this not only through your playing of course.
You do this through conversations that happen between you and your listeners outside your recital and more importantly, through conversations between your listeners and their friends who trust them.
They need you to lead them.
That's how you create purpose, mission, and meaning.
Without them we might all just stay home and watch TV.
