Ep. 140 – Reality Gap

Episode 140: A Message to Dancers Who Are Afraid of Failure


Dancers, how far is the gap between what you want and what you actually have right now? If you have big dreams, I hope there's a gap between where you are now and where you want to be. But how big is that gap, and do you have a real sense of the hill or mountain in front of you, and are you willing to do what it takes to close the gap?

I usually talk to dance coaches and teachers, but today’s episode is a short and important message for dancers. We’ll break down the four things getting in the way of dancers’ dreams and discuss how you have the power to turn these around. By the end of this episode, I hope to help you bridge that gap between where you are now and where you want to be!

Focus on positive motivation, not punishment. Remind yourself what your goal really means to you. Truly hold that picture in your mind. Remember how good you will feel if you give it everything. It's not about what happens at the end. It's knowing you did everything you could and saw growth. So focus on the positive future you want, how proud you will be of yourself if you put in the effort it takes to achieve those dreams.”
