Ever seen those guys at Salsa Socials who wear suits while its 60 degrees outside (600 degrees inside) yet they never take their jacket off??? Well forget about them because being a badass is not as simple as wearing a suit or an insanely hot dress (Even though suits are awesome & insanely hot dresses are my favorite.’ Side Note: expect a post on the different kind of people you meet at Salsa Socials! Coming soon….)
Ok, so now that we have established being a bad ass has got nothing to do with what you wear, how do you become a bad ass? (Note: Badass is being used in this post in the urban term as someone who is calm, confident & in control on the dance floor.)
Well, to answer this question I got 3 pointers for you and then i am gonna compare them against the words and wisdom of one of the most bad-ass people that ever walked the planet.
1. It boils down to technique
Bruce Lee did not kick Chuck Norris ass with luck. He had a lot of technique and literally created his own fighting style.
So if you wanna be a badass, the first thing you gotta do is work on your technique. This includes working on your core, working on your spins, perfecting your lines, improving your balance. e.t.c. To be a bad ass, you gotta work like a badass!
2. To get technique, you gotta practice
Now in order to get this technique you gotta practice, practice and practice. Then when you are done, practice some more.
There is a theory that states it takes 10,000 hours of for someone to master a skill. Mastering a skill is a pre-requisite to being badass.
Now while it may not take 10,000 hours, if Salsa badassery is what you want then guess what? You have gotta put in the time.
There are simply no shortcuts!
3. Not just any practice, but perfect practice is key!
Do you want to know the difference between champions and average people?
Average people do something over & over again until they get it Right.
Champions do something over & over again until they can’t get it wrong!
Remember – Practice does not make perfect, only Perfect practice makes perfect.
Once you embrace those 3 pointers, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
Alright, those are my words of wisdom. Now go forth and become the best bad-ass you can possibly be!
Till next week people, Love your Life and be bad-ass!
P.s. hhmmmm, I wonder how many times I used ‘ass’ in this post?…..
