Lau Tzu joins to show today and I tell ya, it is really hard to find actual Lao Tzu quotes but I think I managed to find one. Lao Tzu says to us, "All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small."

WEBVTT 1 00:00:05.639 --> 00:00:12.160 Good Day, my friend. Welcome to a moment with modes. Thank you 2 00:00:12.279 --> 00:00:18.079 so much for downloading the show. The thought of US being here together today 3 00:00:18.239 --> 00:00:25.399 gives me tickles in my belly. Laosue joins the show today and I tie 4 00:00:25.480 --> 00:00:34.880 you. It is really hard to find actual laosue quotes online, but I 5 00:00:34.920 --> 00:00:43.039 think I managed to find one. So laosue says to us all difficult things 6 00:00:43.079 --> 00:00:48.840 have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which 7 00:00:48.920 --> 00:00:57.159 is small. My friend, what is the dream that you had as child? 8 00:00:57.439 --> 00:01:03.480 What spoke to you, what called out to you before life started to 9 00:01:03.519 --> 00:01:10.439 get in the way? I can remember when my guitar career started. It 10 00:01:10.480 --> 00:01:14.879 was in one thousand nine hundred and seventy six. My First Guitar was an 11 00:01:14.879 --> 00:01:25.040 Air Guitar and I got it after I received kiss the originals, my first, 12 00:01:25.200 --> 00:01:30.400 I guess you could be argued grown up record. It was a record 13 00:01:30.480 --> 00:01:38.280 back then, but it wasn't until two thousand and one when I finally decided 14 00:01:38.920 --> 00:01:46.760 to actually learn how to play the guitar. I was thirty five and I 15 00:01:46.799 --> 00:01:52.599 told myself that I could have twenty years of playing by the time I was 16 00:01:52.680 --> 00:01:59.200 in my s if I just got started of course it wasn't. It wasn't 17 00:01:59.319 --> 00:02:04.400 that easy and I hummed in hot about it for a couple of months. 18 00:02:05.480 --> 00:02:13.919 I finally got started. As we get older, it can be very easy 19 00:02:14.360 --> 00:02:23.199 to start telling ourselves it's too late or you're too old, which of course, 20 00:02:23.400 --> 00:02:29.159 isn't exactly the same thing. I just want to tell you it's not 21 00:02:29.879 --> 00:02:35.639 too late, my rend. Look, the time is going to pass anyway, 22 00:02:36.439 --> 00:02:43.039 so you might as well be doing something. Everything starts out small. 23 00:02:43.960 --> 00:02:47.639 A wall starts with one brick. A tree starts out as a seed. 24 00:02:50.199 --> 00:02:57.039 First you pluck one string, then you pluck two strings and before you know 25 00:02:57.120 --> 00:03:02.960 it you're playing chords, then you're playing and songs. Maybe writings your thing. 26 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:09.840 Commit to fifty words a day, after dinner, before bed, and 27 00:03:09.919 --> 00:03:16.159 in five years, my friend, you're going to have over ninety thousand words. 28 00:03:17.639 --> 00:03:23.080 I'm put my money where my mouth is on this one. My friend, 29 00:03:23.479 --> 00:03:30.439 I'm fifty five. If I get started now on my teaching journey, 30 00:03:30.240 --> 00:03:37.919 I'm going to have almost twenty years of teaching by the time I'm seventy five. 31 00:03:38.360 --> 00:03:43.199 If I look at those twenty years, I'd much rather be carrying my 32 00:03:43.319 --> 00:03:50.719 guitar to work then slinging steel panels while run in a machine, like I 33 00:03:50.800 --> 00:03:57.479 mentioned before, my friend, the time is going to pass anyway. Why 34 00:03:57.560 --> 00:04:02.439 not use it to make your dreams come true? I know you can do 35 00:04:02.479 --> 00:04:12.919 it, I know if you just get started. Carpe momentum. I'll talk 36 00:04:13.000 --> 00:04:14.240 to You Tomorrow
