Pole dancing has a bad name, it’s a fact.
The second you tell someone you’re a pole dancer they automatically assume that you work at a strip joint getting paid to wiggle that booty.
The truth is, pole dancing has evolved over the past years into something so much more and the dedication, skills and beauty it takes make it a shame that people hold it in such low regard.
Now, as times are moving forward I’ve noticed that a lot of people understand the beauty in pole dancing and have taken it away from the sleazy side of the wheel, but there are still so many people who have narrow minds and assume the only way you can pole dance is for money… Jokes on us, we actually pay loads of money to learn as pole dancing lessons are expensive.
So, I wanted to voice my opinion and share our philosophy with all you people who want to try something new like pole dancing.
Our Pole Dancing Philosophy
The second you try something new that people fear will make you better than them, they start hating you.
The human body is riddled with chemicals that cause jealousy and envy and these chemicals are far easier to create than dopamine and serotonin boosts (happiness chemicals).
So, when you try something new like pole dancing and tell your friends, there will be someone who asks to come with you, there will be others who are interested, but there will always be some that look down on you and answer you like… “POLE dancing?!?! Really? Didn’t know you were that kind of person” these are the people who secretly want to do it, but just don’t have the confidence, never let this % of people tell you what is right and what is wrong.
It’s the same % that has been battling against equality and it’ll be the same % that fights against anything that may cause change, no matter whether it’s good or bad.
Ignore these people and remember one thing: Someone’s judgment of you is their problem, not yours.
So, do what you enjoy, don’t fear change and always look for new and exciting things to try.
You’re one in 8 billion people, do you really think you’re special enough for people to care if you dye your hair pink, start pole dancing and go parachute jumping?
What Helps Build Confidence In Order Follow Your Heart?
Doing things you don’t want to do,
It takes confidence to do the things in life that are hard. Cold showers are hard, but after you feel amazing. Exercise is hard, but after it feels amazing.
You often find that our little monkey brains are programmed to reward us for doing the things that are hard, but help with are all round wellness.
Start with the little things like a cold shower, a 5-minute meditation session, not avoiding someone you don’t want to speak too and then learn the power of no.
The power the word no will give you is magical, if you don’t want to do something just say no, don’t say yes and then think of a way to get out of it, instead say no and if you change your mind, send a message, call, it’s not hard and the worse that can happen is the person you said no to, says it back…. Scary? nope.
