Reflection propels progression. In this session of The DancePreneuring Studio, I share the best of what I’ve experienced in 2015 to encourage you to make 2016 your best year yet.
- Step to Success: A step to your success is anything that moves your life and your business forward. Whether it’s an app, a book or an idea, you can apply something today that can help you succeed. Even though I am not a graphic designer, I love seeing the different tools and templates that are available to create things online. Today’s step to success is a site called Creative Market.com and they offer stock photos, graphics, templates, fonts and if you sign up for their email list, you get some free resources every week.
- Dancer’s Dialect: The Dancer’s Dialect is the dancer’s language. I share dance terminology and concepts from different genres to see the correlations in your life and in your business. Today’s word is isolation.
Isolation means pretty much the same things across all styles of dance. You isolate one part of your body, which moves, while the rest of your body remains completely still. This term got me thinking of focusing and isolating one task at a time when you’re working on a project so that you stay creative and productive, which means that multi-tasking is not so ideal. Check out this article from Fast Company on what multitasking does to your brain.
- Freestyle Flow: I talk about making mistakes. As I was going through past sessions, I discovered that I talked about tango twice on two different sessions of the Dancer’s Dialect segment. This won’t be the last time I make a mistake and I need to be okay with that. I used to get so worked up over mistakes that I had made. I remember my first attempt to get my driver’s license and I failed. My auntie asked how I did and I burst into tears like it was the end of the world. I laugh about that now of course : )
- Feature Presentation: I recently met with my mastermind group and we shared the following. It’s so important to surround yourself with like minded people that challenge you and are moving forward with their projects. It’s like having a success vacuum and you just can’t help but get sucked up into this whirlwind of goodness. I hope that in sharing some of the things that we talked about, that you can reflect on what you’ve been through to prepare for even a more impactful year.
