Today I would like to share with you one of my favorite quotes from the legendary ballerina Dame Margot Fonteyn.
“The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous.”
Some sage advice right there.
So if you are interested in taking up a particular pursuit (whether it be ballet or anything else), but worry you would feel silly doing so, I implore you to take yourself less seriously and learn to let go of all those inhibitions. I promise you won’t regret it.
Now for my question to anyone reading, do you have any favorite quotes you would like to share? Let’s hear them!
