Would you chance salsa dancing if you had one leg? Or would you make an excuse?
If you think this is crazy, stop reading. This post is NOT for you.
IF you’re inspired by this dancer, take a moment and think about how often you hold yourself back? What do you tell yourself about it? What are the limiting words that you use?
- “That’s too hard”
- “I’m too old”
- “I’ll look silly”
- “I can’t do that”
These are automatic responses. So automatic you don’t even hear yourself anymore. The thing is, those words completely shape your world. They keep you from dancing, or public speaking or karate, or whatever other dream is in your heart.
The thoughts we think BECOME our reality.

This young woman has more reasons than most why dance is NOT an option for her. One thing is for certain, she was NOT thinking about those reasons, she was too busy focusing on what she wanted – being a salsa dancer. Her laser focus led her to find all the ways she COULD do it, led her to all the answers: where to go, the people willing to suspend preconceived notions and rethink and retool the way they work, the support system that got put into place, all the adjustments that were made. Trust me, there were a lot of moving parts to make this happen, this was not an easy road for her.
Everything came into alignment because of her belief, because she never doubted, or used limiting language.
How can I be sure? Because she’s up there salsa dancing.
We can do anything and yet, we keep ourselves in tight, little, controlled boxes.
- Making excuses
And then we see a video of a young girl dancing salsa that gives us the chance to stop for a moment and ask ourselves “are those things I tell myself really true?” In case you are wondering, NO! Those limiting words are NOT true. They are just habits, but it takes conscious attention to remake your habits.
Are you ready to choose bigger and better and challenge the part of yourself that holds you back?
Do you want to know a secret? It’s easier than what you are doing now. If you watched the video, and read the post… you have a longing in your heart, you are ready. Your bigger life is calling you.
So, where do you begin?
- Make a list of your dreams, pick one, and take a step.
- Make a list of a few things that would challenge you, take you out of your comfort zone, and take a step.
Is dance on one of those lists? Maybe even Latin dancing?
