Well it has been an interesting week! This time I wanted to tell you all a story about subs (no, not the subway 5 dollar foot long ones). As you get to know me you’ll learn I can be oooo so shy. Every time I show up to instruct a class I always get a little nervous …literally every time. So showing up where no one is even expecting you, knows you, or any of the routines your about to teach… was terrifying!! Please understand I do this because I love it, not because its easy!!
In fact, a friend asked me, “So are you sure you want to do this again?”. I initially said “yes of course!” but after some time, I really sat down and thought about it. Man, it would be so easy to just quit; It would be less stressful, less worry, less vulnerability. I mean, IS ANYONE EVEN READING THIS! But later in the week, I got messages from two people, saying how watching that first video reignited old passions and dreams of their own. I don’t think I can even express how much comments like that mean to me. THAT is exactly why this blog was created. I like to say dance fitness is only a tool I use to bring a change. My real purpose here is to get YOU to believe in YOURSELF again! So when I answer "yes of course!", know that I mean it with all my heart.
What are your dreams in life? Is fear holding you back? Whenever you decide to get in the game and off the sidelines of your own life, you will find there are always obstacles that try to hold you back. Whether it be others opinions of you, resources, things, monetary needs, there's always that pull to stay in your comfort zone. Let me tell you something .. All the great things destined for you to achieve will never be accomplished if you only operate out of where you are most comfortable. To truly fulfill all you are purposed for you must find the strength to stand, learn, grow, push fear aside and take that first step. The great thing about it is, you were already designed to win! The only thing that can stop you from your purpose is your own doubt in yourself. So when you have an opportunity to get in the game, take it! That uncomfortable, unsure of yourself feeling is all part of the process.
