The dance teacher

This is a story of dancing, educator and student.

Moral(s) of the story: discipline

Chim loved dancing. It was not just a hobby for her or a way to spend her time, but even at her young age, she was sure that dance was her one true love.

At her dance academy, she was one of the most talented students but she still could not perfect her techniques.

One day, at her dance class, a new teacher appeared. He was just as talented as her other teachers, but the difference was that while the other teachers were young, he was 65.

Chim watched her teacher dance while pouring his heart into it, performing with grace that many younger students could not perfect.

She was enchanted by his hard work and decided to have a talk with him. She learned that her teacher’s last professional dance competition was well over twenty years ago and yet he had stuck to his gruelling training.

When she asked him what drove him to work so hard, he said, “I love dancing. But the discipline is all in my mind.”

She stopped and thought for a moment if discipline can drive a 65 year old man to train so hard and enjoy it, then how powerfully discipline could serve every single human being on the face of this planet?

She realised that to reach where she wanted, she needed more than just passion. She needed discipline, control and a very strong work ethic.


Moral:

Being disciplined in your work can set you free of limitations that surround you in achieving your goals.
