To start off with my story I started building up a hobby of breakdancing about half a year ago. I practiced nearly daily in my room and I was absolutely in love with it. Although it was alot of fun for me I started to get tired of dancing just in my room. I had thought many times of breakdancing at my school dances but I was terrified to. For starters I definitely do not look like the type of person who would break dance. I am a girl and I am also taller than the average dancer. I was also scared that I wouldn’t be good and that everyone would laugh at me.
I decided that considering I was too scared to show anyone my dancing that I would do it in my mind instead. This had been after I had seen The Secret and the thought that I was actually applying it didn’t even cross my mind. So every single time I listened to music I would imagine myself at a school dance, dance battling someone else and beating them. This was absolutely not a chore for me because it was so much fun! Every time I did this I wouldn’t even think “oh wait I should be thinking of me at a school dance right now” because I would end up accidentally imagining it! I could even feel the adrenaline throughout my body when I played it out through my mind. During this whole thing I also noticed that I had gotten better at breakdancing as well.
I had done this for quite a few months untill another school dance came up. I had seen this guy breakdancing and I had this huge urge to ask him to battle. And that is what I did. It ended up with me winning! I also got so many compliments, many of them couldn’t believe that me of all people could breakdance like that! I still continue to visualize even though I am not scared to dance anymore, because visualizing brings me such joy!
