Sunday Exits and Entrances

Sunday Exits and Entrances 

Dancers know all about exits and entrances when it comes to stage performances. But what about life? There are exits and entrances in life, too.

Sometimes they are good things, sometimes not. Entrances are almost always good things – a promotion allows you to enter a new world and encounter new challenges as well as making you feel pretty good.  But exits are a different matter. Failing to “make the cut” for a cast list, or failing to “move up” a class level is, in effect, an exit. You are exiting, or not being allowed to enter, another territory, often one that was greatly desired. You are exiting a dream.

Let’s turn that around. Every exit is an entrance. It just may be an entrance into something you had not anticipated, or have yet to experience. Not getting a part may free you to accept something even better down the road. Or, it may cause you to step back and re-evaluate what you need to do to improve your chances next time. Either way, exits can be good things too. It’s all a matter of how you perceive them.

Remember, every exit is an entrance.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #106:  
Every exit is an entrance.
