Do you want a promotion at work or special evening with your spouse? Instead of waiting for your boss to come to you with a raise or your husband to make dinner reservations, Dr. Robin says you need to take the first step and approach the topic. "If you want to do the two-step, you have to do the one-step first," she says. "You have to take that first step."
Just as in the world of dance, Dr. Robin says in life, those who truly succeed are the ones who have the courage to take risks and know the importance of the first step. "Let's grow ourselves into human beings who are living something more than waiting for someone else to do their own dance so that we can find ours," she says. "Become a director, the producer and the originator of your own dance and your own story."
