In this episode, I TALK about why one of my mom’s lectures, when I was just eight, has stuck with me all these years, and how it contributed toward me getting my job with Tremaine Dance Conventions.
Mother’s main points:
- Resist counting yourself out by announcing what you can’t do
- Remain willing to say “yes” to yourself
- Always be willing to seize opportunities and to try something new
Mom didn’t care about the fact that I knew I couldn’t hula hoop. She said that wasn’t the point. The point was this: Whenever you’re asked if you can do something, the proper response is either “yes,” “I’ll try,” or “I think so.”
Today, I get it. But when I was a kid, all this went over my head.
