You know one thing, the accident I had which wiped my memory, it caused a lot of problems. Like forgetting my life and struggling with spinal injuries.
It was tough, yet, after a lot of work and starting a new job, moving home etc. The one thing which was a real struggle was self-confidence.

This all changed taking up ballroom/Latin dancing. Learning and challenging myself to talk with others and having contact with women enjoying something which allows you to build confidence and learn something new.
You can do the Same Dancing
There is a problem these days and that is Social Media, it takes people away from real contact with people.
It is something that no matter who you might be, tend to have trouble with.
Online Social Life
Nowadays you can hide behind a computer or your smartphone and have many
- Online Social Life
Then you go out with your friends, and the real world is so different. After all, you can say and do what you like, make videos, comment on photos, and you can wear what you like or correspond where ever you are.
Offline Real World Social Life
Is very different. First, you need to be able to communicate with others. Yet, you will find so many will meet and talk, with their smartphone in their hands. Next thing you will see two people talking and looking at their phones and saying. Look at this, or I just have to answer XYZ.
This is where doing something different is so much fun.
One day you should just turn the phone off and learn how to dance
Many people will think they can’t as
- They look silly
- What do you do
- How do you
- and Who with
For me it started many years ago where going to a dance school thinking, wouldn’t it be great to know how to dance and be able to be in charge?
This helps you in our day to day life as well. It is just not the fitness, the new people you meet, the new moves. It is about building your Self-Confidence.
Many people will struggle and have many reservations and this will come out in the life they have. Like if you go to pub, a social gathering or just with friends.
How often do the Men stay in one corner and the Women in the other corner? This is why it is so important to do something very different.
This is exactly the same in everyday life. People are scared to do public speaking, worried about what others say and think and you will find a negative not to do it
- It looks hard
- What will people think
Life is like dancing, every day we will do something, we either have to, just do it or think how can I do it or get out of it.
If you want to get ahead in life, it’s not about “what if!”, “It’s how do I?”
Looking around me at present there are people in their 50’s and 60’s plus who worked hard when they were younger and made a difference. They have many good things in their life and when you talk to them and see what they have. Some are humble and happily enjoying these years.
Then you get the majority who went through life thinking how they will get ahead. They are in their 50’s and 60’s in struggle street as they just did what was needed to pay bills and get by.
This is why it is important to look at your life and where you are today.
What do you have and what don’t you have?
Life is like dancing in your mind daily, every day you do something, its steps you have learned to get ahead and its instruction you followed, trial and error.
The thing is if you just keep your head down on your computer, on your smartphone. What happens when someone asks you a question offline?
How confident are you in answering or making a difference?
When I won prizes in Samba, Rumba, the Cha Cha etc. It wasn’t because of the what if. It was about needing to learn how to meet and communicate, learning to make a difference with other people.
Maybe you could download an App and learn how to dance. But, will you ever be a good partner on the dance floor?
This scientist Theodor Kaluza in the 1800’s taught himself to swim by reading a book and succeeded.
He was an extraordinary person. Could you do the same in life by reading about it? In many cases I doubt it.
I would suggest you meet up with people, turn off your phones, your computer and go and dance.
No matter what you want to do you have the choice to become awesome and make a difference in life.
- Learn something new
- Meet new people
And become more open to life. The confidence you get from dancing will far outweigh, liking things on FB, Twitter etc.
- When you in online social media and no one hears from you for a week. How many will ask how you are or what has happened?
- When you in the real world and you disappear for a week. You will find the people who care, they will ask. After all they know and see you.
When you look at your life and what you want. Think not of what you want. Think of what you need first as you can get what you want easier later.
