How pole dancing is like life.
By Rebecca Louise Miller
The biggest breakthroughs generally come with significant bruising.
You can make a ton of money, but you might have to do some things you’re uncomfortable with.
Sometimes it’s necessary to throw your weight around.
Momentum is more important than strength.
The softest parts of you often prove to be the strongest (hey there, elbow pit!).
Fear is normal, but you get stuck when you pay too much attention to it.
A well-timed hair toss makes almost everything better.
Flight only looks effortless.
You can take it seriously without forgetting it’s supposed to be beautiful.
There is a thin line between perfectionism and self-hatred.
Everybody thinks it’s all about sex. It’s not NOT about sex.
It’s important to know when to hold on and when to let yourself fall.
There are times you’ll need a spotter.
Everybody screws up; but the greats know how to incorporate it into their next move.
Progress is usually pretty painful.
Worry is an unhelpful substitute for practice.
You can only fake your way so far. But you can fake your way pretty far.
When in doubt, clap it out.
