And she said, “I didn’t perform. I’m about to!”***She died at age 42 in 1986. She’s one of the greatest cellists in history.But that day, at age six, she was so excited to perform that she was running TO something.She was running towards an exciting and uncertain and even scary future (“I have to perform and do well!”).
She wasn’t running with relief and the fading of fear. She was running towards the fear.She grew up to be one of the greatest cellists of all time.I have to give a talk later today and tomorrow.
