Sunday Limitations

Sunday Limitations

There is a saying by Richard Bach, that I have paraphrased today. The saying is: “Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours." 

What does this mean? Well, how often have you focused on what you can’t do, instead of what you can, to the point of pulling yourself into a pit of despair. Ouch! Well,okay. We've all been guilty of this. This is arguing (if only with yourself) for your limitations.

So, stop arguing. If you argue about how horrible your pirouettes are, or your extension, or whatever, it prevents you from working to change it, and thus “you’ll get to keep” it. Instead, work to improve the weak areas consistently, but don’t obsess about it. Always work on the whole picture. And don’t forget to let yourself feel good about those things you are accomplishing or that you do well. It’s okay.
From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Motivational Secret #38:   
Don’t argue for your limitations or you’ll  get to keep them.
