Recently I’ve learned from Tom – El Rastasalsa Dance about balance while dancing salsa. The tips he gives me are “keep my knees bend, take
smaller steps, don’t rush, break down piece by piece so that I will be able to pause on anytime“. PS, if you want to learn Latin dance, Tom is an amazing dance professor, please contact him if you are interesting (his info is in the following attached media on the right size).
I think this also reflects on life ~ balance. Would you be surprised if I told you many problems we have in life are due to lack of balance? Many couples/life partners have relationship problems due to unbalance of work and family time. Many ladies have mantel problems due to lack of balance about unbalanced time and love management (eg, putting all-time to the family without saving some space and time for ourselves with self-care and relax; and giving all love to our partners/family without any self-love ~ we murdered ourselves to love which will cause the long-term problem in the future.)
Here’s how I think we could apply the balance 平衡 in our lives with these amazing dance tips from Tom. “keep my knees band” — stay low key in life, there’s no need to be angry and piss off when others did not match our level, give them a smile and walk away from the people who walk into a different direction in life. They just simplify walking in a different direction with choice, why do we need to waste our time for them if we are heading to a different area. For example, when someone only complain all the time and didn’t accept any suggestion/recommendation that could help solve the problems, do you have all day to listen day by day, year by year? They choose to head in an opposed direction to my direction, so I will let them stay on their track. “Our choice took us where we are today, and we can choose where we will be in the future by taking responsibility. The more responsibility we take, the more control we have for our future.” —<<The road to Financial Freedom>>
This is a life balance of responsibility and the control of our future. I strongly feel that from <<Who move my cheese>> storybook as well.
The “take the smaller step, don’t rush” is really helpful for balance both in dance and in life. Time flies, and we always try to rush into a better future. However, that’s how we start losing our sight and vision. The most popular mistake we made is under pushes sale pressure, we buy things that are not needed in life. Although today salesmen always tell us that we can return if we don’t want it later on. Do you realize that by returning the items we lose time, which puts us into poor people’s baskets? <<Rich Dad Poor Dad>> mentioned that rich people use the money to buy time, and poor people use the time to earn money. So time is a treasure, and how do you think we should treat our treasure? Rush into buying will cause us more treasure at the end, so take a deep breath, list out 5 reseason that why we should buy this, and list out how often we gonna use this before we buy that. When we take the smaller steps, we have more balance in life without spending too many treasures.
“Breaking piece by piece so that we can pause at any time” is really interesting, because, in dance, this not only helps balance but also make us lighter for the lead. Won’t you think if in life we have more control of ourselves (we keep some time to take care of our health, our body shape, and our finance) will keep it easier for our partner/family as well? Who will take care of the family when you are sick? Who has more control in life with relationship status, in-shape person, or lack of self-care person? Who has more control in their own life, the person who has her/his income or person relaid on their life partner? The balance between self and family is really important for life. Many people who kill themselves to love someone end up losing their partners because they lose all the control of their own life. I also believe that ladies should never give up their own income even they are in a relationship. Although a sexy lady/gentleman in the relationship, your partner saw you every day might still get bored, but if you have your own income source, they won’t be able to take away your living power and put unnecessary negative emotion on you. It’s sad, but this is the power of money and the lace of appreciation to the close one for the human being. If you would like to learn more about self-investing, I have a blog about this.
