Leonardo Da Vinci was left handed and his personal notes were written from                         the right side of the page to the left.

Claude Monet’s father disapproved of his painting. He wanted him to be a grocer.

Micro-sculptor Willard Wigan creates artwork so small that he once inhaled one by accident. His sculptures will run you about $40,000. Here’s one in the eye on a needle.

Vincent Van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works during his life: 900 paintings and 1,100 drawings and sketches. He only sold one painting while he was alive. That is some serious persistence.

On December 3rd, 1961, Henri Matisse’s painting “Le Bateau” was put right-side up after hanging upside-down for 46 days without anyone noticing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) had a room in his house full of crazy hats, hidden behind a bookshelf. Theodor put hats on his guests at parties and asked them to embody that character for the evening. He used his hat collection to take on new personas and overcome creative blocks. In addition to his commercial artwork, he was also a prolific painter and sculptor. His “Unorthodox Taxidermy” sculptures were inspired by what he imagined animals would want to be reincarnated as.

There’s a rhythm in you.

Dancing Is the Fast Way to Make Yourself Happier

Dancing is fundamental to being human. We know this because there is no wallflower culture, no part of the world where rhythm is ignored. We also know this because we tap our toes to songs we hate. We can’t help it!

Dancing is  linked to a whole bunch of physical, social, and mental benefits. It is basically a super fun (if you’re doing it right) vitamin.

dance personal zumba

Dancing with other people is connected to emotional competence, self-esteem, and healthy levels of trust. Don’t trust the researchers? Just ask a dancer.

When you take dance lessons or classes, you are always learning something new. It might be to “bust a new move”, learn new choreography or a new approach to an old technique. Learning a new skill or new approach will help your self-esteem.

According to research, dance is an adaptive behavioral pattern that communicates beauty, health, strength, and attractiveness .Men and women described as dancers receive higher ratings than men and women described as non-dancers.alicia vikander shimmy dance dancing vogue

Think of dancing as a super-battery for your brain — it integrates kinesthetic, rational, musical, and emotional brain functions all at once, which increase your neural connectivity.

Take dance classes or go out dancing four times a week, dance as much as you can! Dance is essential to start building cognitive reserve.

tips to raise your child to be a leader

We would like to share these practical tips on how to raise your child to be a leader.

 

Tip #1

1).  Let your child make choices.
Give your child choices, not hard ones, just choices that they can make on a daily basis.  “Which of these TWO outfits do you want to wear tomorrow?, “Which cereal do you want to eat?”, “Do you want milk or water with your dinner?”

Tip #2

2). Let them take chances.
 I learned this while reading my favorite parenting book, “Love and Logic Magic for Early Childhood: Practical Parenting From Birth to Six Years”.   If you are always there to stop your child from making a mistake, they will rely on you forever.  Let them take chances.  Let them see that falling on the ground wasn’t so awful.

Tip #3

3). Don’t over compliment.
Yes, it is GREAT to be proud of your kids, but give them the chance to really show you their greatness. If we are always telling them how great they do, for every tiny thing, our word will start to become something that they NEED and it will also lose part of its value. Lets not teach them to rely on others for positive reinforcement.  Let them do a job on their own and they will see how great it feels to be proud of themselves!

Tip #4

4).  Have a “Go get ’em tiger” attitude with your kids.     If they want to try something, tell them to go for it!   If they are thinking something might be too hard…  ask them “Why not just give it a shot?   Whats the worst that can happen?”  Don’t let them try dangerous things, but do encourage them to try things that they might be reluctant to try.
Encourage them to just GIVE IT A SHOT! 

Tip #5

5).  Don’t expect perfection.    Don’t expect laziness, either.   Teach them to try their best (and make sure that they do!)

Tip #6

6).  Lead by example.   The best thing that we can do is to SHOW our kids.
Teach your kids to lead by being a leader!   (& teach them to listen by being a listener).

Tip #7

7).  As the parent, you have to be willing to do things that aren’t the same as everyone else.
It might be the ‘expected’ thing to go to a certain place or do a certain thing, but show your kids that you don’t have to follow the norm.   You can do something different and you can be great at it!

Tip #8

8). Believe in your kids!
Tell your kids that  you KNOW that they  can do things.  Believe in them more than they believe in themselves, at times.  Never tell them that they can’t do something.

Tip #9

9). Parent YOUR Child, not someone else’s child.
What on earth does that mean?  It means that YOUR child might learn by ‘doing’ while someone else’s child might learn by ‘listening.’  Learn what makes your child ‘tick’.  Learn what makes your child the leader.   Build up that part of your child.   Parent YOUR child.

Tip #10

10). Develop your child’s potential by engaging them in a good  Leadership workshop that will  empower them essential character and life skills needed to face everyday challenges.
