It sounds naive, but you would be surprised how malleable brain, nerves, muscles and tendons are to suggestion.

Precisely. Telling oneself ďI canít be as good as (((whatever))) is essentially blocking and limiting yourself.

I have no idea how developed I might become, but I continually remind myself not to make any assumptions. None. Iím working on my playing, and that work will continue until Im physically unable to carry on. Even then, I can tell you, Iíll be trying to find a solution that gets me going again.

Dont label yourself an ďadult learnerĒ either. Thereís near always a negative association people apply with it, and itís completely invalid. People do this all the time, and it makes me see red.

Youíre not an adult learner .... your a learner. Period. Your age has nothing to do with anything aside from when you can collect social security (good luck with that) and get a senior discount at Dennyís.

Get back to work; and enjoy yourself ... now. =]
