Put Yourself in an Environment where you are appreciated, otherwise You are wasting your time.

A violinist played for 45 minutes in the Washington D.C. subway.

Of the 1,097 people who passed by, seven stopped to listen to him, and one recognized him.

He collected $32.17 in tips from 27 passersby (excluding $20 from the one who recognized him).

Only one person knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. In that subway, Joshua played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.

Two days before he played in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out a Boston theatre, and the seats averaged about $100.

The experiment proved that the extraordinary in an ordinary environment does not shine and is so often overlooked and undervalued.

There are brilliantly talented people everywhere who aren’t receiving the recognition and reward they deserve. But once they arm themselves with value and confidence and remove themselves from an environment that isn’t serving them, they thrive and grow.

Your gut is telling you something. Listen to it if it’s telling you where you are isn’t enough!

Go where you are appreciated and valued.

My takeaway: put yourself in an environment where you are appreciated, otherwise you are wasting your time.

Know Your Worth.
