My Aunt Dianne once said to me “Nothing succeeds like success.” The key to gaining that first little success that flowers into larger success is simple. Take one little step in the direction you desire. What I find edifying about the Suzuki method is that the little steps are built in, each new step adding a small detail that strengthens the steps already taken – the result is momentum. And what applies to learning guitar will apply to life. The smallest step in the RIGHT direction IS a small SUCCESS!
