The First Student Who Joins Zumba Class
The Person That Gives The Idea of Where The Zumba Instructor Will Go
Today’s confession is about my Zumba classes experience. In July, I started the certification process and finished it in August. It was my dream to become a Zumba instructor since I actively danced for three years.
I have always loved dancing and writing. It’s not a surprise I started to work seriously on my blog and Zumba instructor training at the same time because my emotional luggage was too much six months ago.
Looking back, I feel proud of myself. It’s a fact my earnings and class students are not many, but I feel motivated to wake up every morning, working as much as possible for my goals. My inner fuel is almost neverending because it has always been my dream to inspire people with my words, and energy to become the best versions of themselves.
One of my close-to-heart people said I am like a shaman and the readers or students, who follow me, are mad. I took that as a compliment because knowing it, I feel free and happy to find my purpose in that lifetime. Madness always leads to a great life.
After I got the certificate as a Zumba instructor, for a few months I practiced as many steps as possible. Copycats have never been a favorite theme of mine, but sometimes to build confidence in something new people start, they need to watch and learn. Until I played hide and seek with my Zumba classes, doing them on my own without promoting it much, something unexpected happened.
It was Sunday when my first Zumba student joined the class I led. My conditions were not good – I dance on the terrace, usually at nighttime, and listen to Youtube saved playlist with all the steps I need for my training. It was surprising someone came to my online class that night. I used to stay alone in it without a doubt I am on the right life path. I finished the training, gave my energy to the student, and now she joins me every time on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
The bond between a Zumba instructor and her student is unbreakable, bringing out the best in both parties.
My student was shocked by my way of leading classes, and I was motivated to do better. Starting then, I continue to do my best to give an emotional, energetic, and proper performance the best way I can even if it’s not perfect.
After seeing I inspired someone’s evening, now nothing can stop me from doing what I love to do. My Zumba love is displayed in my daily routines, and my motivation for it is beyond financial. I never do anything only for the money. There should be a fire in my heart to keep doing what I do, both in my love and career fields. That’s the reason I do everything with a passion that is too intense for people to understand it.
It’s an undeniable fact that mad and genius people have their unique ways of living and doing things. These personalities are the greatest leaders, mentors, and life game-changers.
After I got my first Zumba student, my improvement as an instructor and person started at high speed. I love what I do and joined many webinars to make my business a success. Zumba should be taken seriously. There is a lot to learn from that sport: charisma, leadership, professionalism, and human attitude. Regarding fitness part and earnings, they are not the main points. Inspiration, positive energy, and releasing the body’s organs from negativity are a must in every business. Another strong reason for me to teach Zumba in my way is to have social human contact and improve my authenticity as a person.
I am uncertain how far I will go with my Zumba instructor career, but my feeling is that’s my thing. That alone is a great starting point and it’s understandable only by those who dare to leave their comfort zone and pursue the unknown.
Are you one of them?
How the first Zumba student acts after joining my class is a clue of how I will do as an instructor in the future – loyalty and acceptance of circumstances are pivotal. The greatest trainers have students who believe in them. Even if there is only one believer in one human, there is a strong candle that enlights life and gives the motivation to keep going.
Look for your one follower, reader, student, faithful person, associate, team member, or colleague that gives the light in your daily living. That’s a strength that keep you going when times are challenging. That makes people overcome their failures. Keep the faith.
