“Music is the medicine of the mind.”

“Music is not to hear it is to feel.”

The inexorable Stirling, as happens when individuals push the boundaries of what’s popular and accepted, was told time and time again, that there was ‘no way’ that Violin could become ‘cool’.

Over the years, Stirling faced many rejections and setbacks, but unflinching in her resolve, kept steamrolling towards her dream.

In keeping her faith, not only did she storm towards her dreams and achieved her dreams of success, but created a whole new genre of music that echoes Emerson’s timeless adage:

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.”

I got nothing but respect for this woman.

When seeking goals and dreams, it’s not uncommon to hear by conformists, because only a conformist could ever think something isn’t possible, that someone can’t make it, or that someone will never amount to nothing, and yet, undaunted, Stirling eventually achieved her dreams.

That’s why its important to always keep in mind the timeless words by Dalai Lama that:

“The only way to fail, is if you quit.”
