Life Lessons from the Trapeze Tent
Just the other day, my “flying friend” Nomi and I were discussing our goals at the start of our Trapeze class. She asked me “what should my goal be for today?” Typically we both like to set a focus or goal for a particular class to improve our skills and get the most out of our lessons.
So I responded with a question, “what do you want to do today?”
She hesitated, and shyly smiled. “I want to…well, um, catch my backend straddle off the rise…but that’s not really, I mean…” Attainable. That was the word she was looking for.
So I stated it out loud right back at her nodding my head “You want to catch your backend straddle off the rise. Yes?”
And guess what. She did. Twice. Watch it here.
So if you can be brave enough to state your dreams out loud, even if they seem out of reach, you might just surprise yourself. And it always helps to have someone there there as your champion, as Nomi and I are for each other.
