Sunday Go Ask Step

Sunday Go Ask Step

Today I present three simple ideas, or rules, for achieving goals. 

Number 1:  If you do not GO after what you want, you’ll never have it. This is similar to the saying: You can’t fail until you stop trying.  Although I prefer to think that in this sort of instance, you don’t fail, you simply change direction. And sometimes that can be progress.

Number 2: If you do not ASK, the answer will always be no. Dancers seem to be particularly at risk for this, since we are taught to stay quiet and accept correction. This works in a ballet class, but not in many other instances. For instance, have you ever asked for a scholarship, or something similar?

Number 3: If you do not STEP forward, you will always be in the same place. This is important in a dance class. You need to do a little more, stretch a little further, balance a little longer, etc. Otherwise you are only maintaining technique, not progressing with it.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #29:  
“ Three simple rules: Go, Ask, Step.”
