Sunday Motivation

Sunday Motivation

What does motivation mean to you? What do you do to stay motivated?

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the word motivation means:  “the condition of being eager to act or work : the condition of being motivated. : a force or influence that causes someone to do something.”

How does a dancer stay “eager to act or work” in a competitive, challenging and often discouraging environment? It all comes down to desire and that desire will be different for every person. What do you desire most out of your dance training? Identify it, and then find ways to push yourself toward that goal. Ways to inspire yourself might include:  a motivational song, a mental image of a future job or role – or it might be relishing the simple joy of a daily accomplishment in class, like mastering a particular step.

Think about what motivates you, then focus on it.
