I recently saw a quote from Chet Walker that really caught my eye.
He is the Director of the Jazz/Musical Theatre Dance program at Jacob's Pillow.
So, in other words, he's amazing.
"You lose your power if you yell and scream. Be clear, it can't be a guessing game. Everyone is there to learn and get the job done."
You can find more of him in this Dance Teacher Magazine article.
What he said really stuck with me.
He was, of course, talking about dance.
But, I really think it applies to everything....parenting, relationships, work, etc.
I know that when people have yelled at me individually or at me in a group, I totally block them out, and don't grow from the lesson they are trying to teach, or from the point they are trying to make.
No one is perfect...I get that....and we all lose it every now and then.
But, hopefully we (mainly I) can try a little harder every day.~
