10 tips to stay motivated and inspired along your dance practice

* Being inspired awakens us to new possibilities and new experiences *

This summer for 10 weeks I have shared with you 10 quirky tips to encouraging self-motivation and inspiration every Monday!

When I first founded Unique Tay – my very first mission was to Engage, Embrace and to Empower. I wanted to create a platform reaching the next generation of aspiring dancers & artists to aspire above and beyond. And one way I pulled through was due to consistent motivation.

So now my 10 week #MotivationalMondays #uniquemondays has ended, I have decided to hand over my affirmations to you all in one. Since Mondays is typically a gloomy start to the week, what other ways are there to boost your happiness and motivation along your dance pracrtice??

1) Embrace your uniqueness.

Yes identify your qualities. Embrace it. Own it. Flaunt it. There’s only one you, so embrace what makes you special and uniquely different.


2) Aspire to Inspire.

What are your aspirations, your goals, your dreams? Whatever it is, remember its only YOU who controls your vision. Start reaching for your aspirations today and stop talking and start doing. Take action and inspire others to do likewise.


3) Take tiny steps to success.

There is nothing wrong with taking a tiny step forward, as apose to taking a leap. What holds us back from taking a step, is laziness. That ‘what if’ ‘but’ ‘ummm’ thoughts that’s circulate in our mind, distracting us from being proactive.
To ensure you reach the TOP of your ladder is to be consistent and focused.

4) Too blessed to be stressed.

Avoid over commitment and instead prioritise tasks. Remember to set aside leisure time and be spontaneous!!! Count your blessings for every achievement you make…..I certainly do.

5) Stay true to yourself.

Stay true to what you believe in and to what satisfies you. Along your creative journey, invest your energy & time in YOUR practice. Know who you are and who you want to be.

6) Wait long live long. 

This is one of my favorite quirky tips so far. It is special to me as I got this tip from my grandmother (R.I.P.) who use to say ‘wait long live long’ (in patois) when walking across the road.

Strangely over the years I  have twisted & turned my grandmother’s motto and used it day by day when making choices, especially along my dance practice. Which is to not to rush and walk far forward without looking left and right. Be observant with your artistic choices. Always question ‘is this for me..will this make me happy?’

7) Positive energy creates positives vibes.

Start your morning off with a positive, can-do attitude  do not dwell too hard on any negative experiences, that’ll only drag you through the week…. So instead for every negative thought, SWITCH IT UP for 5 (YES 5) positive self compliments instead.

(I’ll give you a kick start..) *Be happy & content with where you are TODAY!


8) Self love. Self determination. Self worth.

Every choice you make and every step you take, all starts with the way you think & feel about yourSELF. Our behavior and attitude contributes towards our lifestyle…it all begins with yourSELF.

Be spontaneous and take a risk, be confident in your decisions, trust yourself and love yourself enough to see worth in all of your efforts and achievements. Learn to love yourself first.

9) Focus on you.

Oh yes that means to Focus. On .You. (As simple as that may sound), my unique way of staying focus lies along the lines of ‘Visualisation’.

To visualise your future, use your creative imagination to envision your end goal. What will it look like and where will you I be?


10) To Engage. To Embrace. To Empower.

Our last & final Unique Motivational Monday tip!!! 

Engage – yourself in what satisfies you. Be grounded in your career prospects & dance practice. Create a platform for yourself and simply express ya self 

Embrace – and appreciate dance as an art form

Empower – others around you to do and BE better!

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    1. Hello Jan, apologies for the late reply. I have been offline but thank you for your kind comment 🙂 Glad you like my blogs and tweets. I have not tried AdSense yet to promote my site but I have tried out Facebook Ads too and yes it is quite expensive. However it certainly did the job.. How about Instagram? Are you active there? I will certainly check out your website too no problem and I am always up for connecting with future young entrepreneurs too!!!
