Success IS Mental

Whether you think you can, or think you can’t- You’re Right.

~Henry Ford

I have been told this ALL MY LIFE, but I had never actually believed it. How could success be mental? Isn’t it physical? What does this even mean? Throughout the past year, I have discovered the truth in these wise words…

*I think back to November when I had to perform a difficult turn onstage. Out of all of the rehearsals, I had only successfully landed the turn ONCE before I had to take it to the lights. On the day of the show, I was terrified that I was going to fall in front of such a big audience. However, my attitude completely changed when I reached the spiraling moment. I told myself, “I am going to do this, and I CAN do this”. Without hesitation, I took off and landed that turn without fail! Was it just pure luck? It couldn’t have been, because I did the same thing with each of my 4 shows and landed them all! How is that for some mental success?

I am not going to bore you all with my large list of mental-success connections from this season, but my point is that you can do a lot more than you think you can! Sometimes all it takes is a really tough situation to prove to yourself that you CAN do it and you WILL achieve it, as long as you BELIEVE it. 🙂  Happy Saturday guys!

Studio to Theater


Rehearsal season is back up and running at full speed again. Typically, our schedules get super packed around October and March, as we prepare to be back under the lights… I am always MENTALLY ready to be onstage, but PHYSICALLY is another story… It has been almost a full month since I have stepped in that theater; I am already missing it, but our dances still need to be finished.

From Night of Variations Showcase, Beauty and The Beast Ballet, competitions, and festivals, let’s end this season strong on MAYSA ROSE. 🙂 I am thrilled to bring you all along with me, from studio to theater. Thanks for all the support guys!

Go ‘GREEN’ or Go Home!


You heard me!! GO ‘GREEN’ OR GO HOME!! Happy Saint.Patrick’s Day everyone! Don’t forget to wear something green today! 🙂

Today’s wardrobe: Green eye shadow, green earrings, green ribbon for my bun, and green leotard… Lots of green. Join me!

Hence I cannot be silent, and indeed I ought not to be, about the many blessings and the great grace which the Lord has deigned to bestow upon me.

Quote It!


Lately, I have read some incredibly moving posts that have really changed the way that I look at situations in life! I wanted to share part of Josiah Harry’s post…

Be Phenomenal or Be Forgotten!

“Not long ago, I was that person who was living beneath his potential. I was the person who watched success from the sidelines while everyone else was winning. That was until I decided that I had enough. Today, my life is no longer defined by the word average. I have taken the leap toward greatness. I have made up my mind that I will be a best-selling author. I have accepted that I will become a multimillionaire. I have decided that I will own and operate a multibillion-dollar brand. I live in the pursuit of excellence—I’m ALL IN—giving 120% effort all day, everyday.

The prevailing theme of my posts is that YOU are powerful beyond measure. But you must believe that for yourself. I cannot want success for you more than you want it for yourself. So, I implore you to activate the greatness that lies within you. No more excuses. Be the person you were meant to be. Don’t worry about your past, just focus on the promise. Go forth and live your life as a conqueror because that is who you are. You deserve to experience life’s best. The choice is yours. Be phenomenal or you will be forgotten!”

Be Phenomenal or Be Forgotten!

“You are what you make yourself to be”


Have you been told this before? It wasn’t until just recently that I really started trying to understand the meaning behind these wise words…

Now that I took time to think about this, I know that you are the outcome of your hard work and effort. You may not have natural born talent, but that doesn’t define your achievements and how far you can go in life. Honestly, you can spend days feeling sorry for yourself because you feel like you aren’t as talented as the people around you, but that isn’t going to do anything other than break you down. The truth is, if you want something, you must work for it and put in all that you have to achieve it. Nobody else around you really matters, and how fast they improve has nothing to do with yourself. As my parents have always told me, ‘The only person that you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday’ (unknown) … You are what you MAKE yourself, so make yourself great! 🙂
