Everyone needs a break from time to time. The mentality "always on" sounds cinematic, but it's dangerous!
I feel that now is a time for self-reflection. Have you felt a little frustrated in yourself lately? Maybe you haven't progressed much in the past year? I want to go over a checklist with you today. Let's figure out why we might feel this way and discuss how we can improve. We can laugh about it while we're doing it! Shout out to Felipe Bustillo (instagram) @pipe_fx for the photos!
I feel like I need to consume something as part of my checklist. Maybe you've thought something like this before - I need to finish this movie because I started it. Just take a second with me and wallow in how pathetic that sounds, this is entertainment. You don't have to watch this thing! You don't have to finish your list of movies you've saved on Netflix. As simply as I can put it, you will not feel better when you watch all of that content. You will not be a better person. You gain nothing.
The first night of practice/trying is usually a major let down. It doesn't have to leave you wanting though! Read this for a few quick tips on getting the most out of a first practice/try out.
If you are wondering what is holding you back from what your dream, I think I have the answer, and you should feel dumb for not knowing it.
I know you want it! But is that enough? Obviously not! You need to do the little things EVERY DAY!
