With Thanksgiving just a few days away here in the U.S., I was inspired to talk about gratitude and readiness with you today.


If you’ve read my book or been a long-time listener of the podcast, you know I am a former dancer. During my time as a dancer, I had the honor to work and tour with Lucinda Childs, a modern dance legend.


Today, I’m sharing what this experience taught me about being grateful and the importance of remaining in a state of readiness.


In this episode, we’ll explore:


  • Why I view all of the speakers I direct through the lens of a performer

  • The unique opportunity I was given as a part of the Lucinda Childs Dance Company

  • How I stayed in a state of readiness and gratitude despite a challenging circumstance

  • Why gratitude and readiness help you overcome limiting beliefs and fear
