Ep. 160 – Achievement Mindset

Episode 160: How Goal Setting Transforms your Performance on Stage


 Goal setting isn't just about saying something you want to achieve, writing it on a sticky note, and then going for it. That's why a lot of goal setting falls apart. We mean well and we set some big goal, and then somehow it never happens. How you think about goals and how you approach them makes all the difference in making goal setting work for you. I’ve seen hundreds of dancers learn how to use goal setting properly and then turn around to have their most successful season ever, and it’s time I share the insider info with you!

This episode is part one of a two-part series about goal setting. Today, we’ll set the foundation of the achievement mindset. Then next week, I'll share with you my exact goal-setting process that has changed my own life and so many dancers and coaches I've worked with. In this episode, you'll learn the three key ways that an achievement mindset combined with good goal setting changes your performance!

“Dance teachers, I know we all want our dancers to be better at overcoming challenges because, as a dancer, you will have setbacks. You will have a solo performance that doesn't go well or an audition where you don't get noticed. But goal setting teaches you how to handle those setbacks and allows for your achievement mindset to see this as a blip in the road, but your path is still in front of you.”
