Discipline is NOT a dirty word!

Apr 25, 2022

No one is motivated all the time, but the good news is ballet teaches us discipline...

One of my students asked me the other day, "How do you stay so motivated?"

The truth is, I'm not motivated all the time.

I don't know anyone who is motivated 100% of the time.

Sometimes I don't feel like going for my morning walk.

Sometimes I don't feel like doing my calf rises.

Sometimes I don't feel like coming into the studio.

But the good news is that ballet taught me discipline!

Ballet taught me how to show up for myself even when I don't feel like it. 

There's some misconceptions around the word discipline...

Discipline is not a dirty word.

Discipline is not about control. 

It's about having the sense to do what's needed at any given time. 

Discipline simply means that in any situation you're able to do what's required to achieve the goals or tasks you've set yourself.

Remember, mood follows action.

Not the other way around...
