Go to what scares you the most!
Go to what scares you the most.
You’re not alone. Life is scary at times. And, yes, we have options:
We can cower
We can put up walls.
We can open up.
All three are viable options. But only one helps you in teaching.
Open up. Go to what scares you the most.
Are you afraid to teach a certain exercise? Practice it. Teach it and do it. Learn to love it because you worked to overcome your fear of it.
Are you afraid to teach a certain population? Do our seniors scare you? Are you afraid you’ll hurt them? Educate yourself not just by reading books, but by asking more senior teachers than you, by asking doctors about what you don’t know and then go and teach seniors! You’ll enjoy because you will be prepared.
Are you afraid to teach on a certain apparatus? Does the wunda-chair scare you? Take a session with your senior teachers and learn more about it. Then make it your mission to teach it more often!
Go to what scares you the most. Then you once you’ve met this fear head on and educated yourself, you will no longer fear it, but love it!
