How To Discover Your Purpose As A Dancer

Do you know what your life's purpose is?

Last night, on our weekly #LetsTalkDance Tweetchat on Twitter, the topic was, Passion and Purpose. We had in-depth discussion about what we believe our life’s purpose is as dancers, and we had to answer some pretty tough questions, like…

  • What is your purpose as a dancer/dance professional?
  • Do you have a personal mission statement?

  • What are the top 3 things you are most passionate about in your life?

  • How much time do you devote to pursuing your passion and fulfilling your purpose everyday?

  • What do you want your legacy to be?

Have you ever asked yourself these questions?

How To Discover Your Purpose As A Dancer

  • One of the best ways to discover your purpose, your passion, and your mission, is to simply ask yourself these questions, and write down what comes to mind. Then see if what you’re thinking, and feeling, are in alignment with your daily actions.
  • Take a moment to think about the things that bring you the most joy, and that you would spend the majority of your time doing, if money was not an issue.
  • Think about your core skills and abilities, the things you are really, naturally good at, no matter what environment you’re in, and who you think will benefit most from the value that you bring to the world.
  • Pray and ask God to give you wisdom and show you what His ultimate plan and purpose is for your life. After all, He created you for a reason, and a purpose that is greater than anything you may have even imagined.
The answers from our Tweetchatters last night were insightful, funny, and heartfelt. I just had to share some of the responses with you, and I’d love to hear your answers to these questions too.

Read below to see some of the responses to two very important questions.

How much time do you devote to pursuing your passion and fulfilling your purpose everyday?

My answer: Working on spending more time in 2012. So many incredible blessings  to come! I can feel it!

@ShaunaFarver: “Time devoted to pursuing my passions-large majority! Fulfilling my purpose-opportunity for improvement!”

@mochazina: “Not nearly as much as I would like. Still working the masterplan to be free to do so!”

@morphing: “So many hours, I’ve gone back to keeping cold cream and tissues by the computer to clean my face.” 🙂

@Nick_Kelly: “When #music#dance are a part of your life, time isnt the right unit of measure. Love is.”

What do you want your legacy to be?

My Answer: That I was a woman of faith & integrity, & dedicated my life to bless & uplift people all over the world.

@DanceinaBox “To inspire those who will inspire others to inspire others…that’s how your legacy lives on!”

@ChinaCatDance “In honesty, what dancer wouldn’t want to leave a new technique or an exquisite piece of choreography?”

@Morphing “I want to leave a better world for the next generations.”
