Dance is a challenging activity. There will always be someone who has started learning at a younger age, or someone who learned the basics of the dance quicker, or someone who went to more events and hence improved more than you. For those times when you feel discouraged because you can’t make up that time, it’s worthwhile to remember a famous Chinese proverb:
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.
We can never go back in time to plant that tree, just like we can’t go back to start dancing earlier in life. What we can do is start working now. You will never find a better time to start than now, so go out and begin!
