TEACHERS: Why A Little Encouragement Can Do Wonders

Shawn Byfield teaches the next generation of dancers.

Hey teachers, a little encouragement can go a long way!

Never underestimate the power of your words with your students. The words that come out of your mouth matter. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it… But some of it will *actually* stick!

Encouragement is always memorable. So try your best to make sure whatever you DO say, sticks for the right reasons.

The team has done a super job showcasing diversity in dance, culture and ethnicity the past two years, and there’s even MORE this year. In fact, our organization has set up a CULTURE EXCHANGE. What’s that?
 
Well, I hope you’ve been paying attention to my encouragement to THINK BIGGER lately…
 
…because today, I’m at Canada’s National Ballet School teaching a large private group of bright young students who flew in… FROM BEIJING. How cool is that?! 
 
Come see what the fuss is all about next Friday August 5th, at Toronto City Hall. Event starts at 4:30pm. I’ll be there all night, so be sure to say hi and let’s take a snap together. Most importantly, our next generation of superstar dancers of all cultures would LOVE your support!

A THOUGHT:

It’s true, we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But here’s a secret… People do!

Look the part. If you want people to take you seriously, then a good place to start is by taking yourself seriously.

Make sure your outer world is an accurate reflection of your inner world.

You won’t fly with eagles when you’re dressed like a turkey!

This Is The Simple Way To Not Settle For Ordinary In The 21st Century

JimRohnwisdom

I always notice how one of the most fascinating topics of study is people.

Ordinary VS Extraordinary

Here’s a fun example:

In today’s ever changing and often monotonous world, so many people claim they’re looking for an opportunity to be different. But when someone presents them with an opportunity to be different, those people want to stay the same.

Isn’t that interesting?

My mentor Jim Rohn said it best:

“If you’re not willing to risk the usual you’ll have to settle for the ordinary.”

So many have the potential to do good, be great, and live a happier, more fulfilled life. But having a better life is different than most people, and we’ve been led to believe different is uncomfortable. So many don’t realize their potential simply because… it’s more comfortable to settle and stay the same.

If you want change, you must change.

If you don’t like something, you must change something.

If you want to be extraordinary, you gotta do a little EXTRA!

And if you do nothing, nothing happens.
