You can't soar with the eagles if you're digging for worms

Updated: Dec 14, 2020

This was something my ballet teacher used to say. She was referring to the ability to really soar in a grand jete (that's the big leap where dancers launch into a flying split that carries them across the stage). Dancers who looked down could never really fly even if their technique was otherwise perfect.

I still have dreams that I am leaping like I did in my dancing days. It was the most glorious feeling. It never occurred to me to envy the birds because I thought I already knew how to fly.

To soar you must elevate your focus.

Elevate your focus
