allison burke EP65.PNG

Allison Burke is a TRUE HIGH PERFORMER in life.

She is a professional dancer who performs full time as ensemble dancer + artist coach for Cirque Du Soleil's Beatles LOVE show. 

She is a fitness model as well as a pilates & HIIT trainer for TruFusion (my favorite hot studio in Vegas)

Allison has been dancing, performing and competing for the majority of her life. 

She is a proud graduate of Chapman University with a Bachelors in Dance + in Advertising.

She’s traveled the world training, assisting + dancing with some of the most revered choreographers in dance and has earned several performance awards over the years, for great reason: she is the ultimate representation of talent that gets backed up all the way by hard work driven by relentless passion.

There’s no quit in this growth-minded artist who is constantly discovering ways to expanded herself into a greater expression of her Self that touches ALL areas of her life, starting with the connection and love she holds for herself. 

Some takeaway mindset gems in this episode:

  • Discovering your strengths + your deficiencies for better performance

  • Dismissing the constant need for perfection while keeping standards high

  • The importance of Self-Investigation for constant growth

  • Eliminating “imposture syndrome” and owning your outcomes

  • Learning how to trust yourself under pressure

  • Beating body-issue challenges with true nourishment and self love

  • Operating from an open, abundant mindset vs a restrictive controlling mindset

I LOVE our conversation so much.

Not only is it a deep dive into the challenging journey she relentlessly maneuvered through to become an artist for one of the worlds most revered entertainment shows in that lives in Las Vegas, but it is a real conversation with a real woman who is authentically working through the process of constant self-discovery with an honest, curious and open mind.

Its deep, full of laughter and I really believe you will love + be inspired by Allison journey + her mindset; I most definitely am.

Enjoy.

I hope this Instasode drops into your life at the perfect time to remind you to stay on your team by encouraging and acknowledging all of your efforts regardless of how much more you want to produce and gain. We always want more. How we feel on the way to generating  "More" for our lives is of equal importance as gaining it when you believe that the journey IS the reward. 

ORIGINAL POST:

F L O W

There’s some days when I enter training feeling low in energy or straight up unmotivated. But regardless of how I feel stepping into it, I know that while it’s going down Im going to ask myself to give it my best effort- no matter what.

.

And here’s the thing: 

this idea of “best” is not a straight line, it’s not static- it, like me, is constantly shifting its state. Some days my best is fucking powerful, it produces an amazing feeling + results. And then there’s those other days when my best is simply great effort that gets me through the motions + is an act of consistency. .

Honoring the daily shift not just in your physical performance but in any + ALL aspects in your life where performance is required of you, is such a crucial tool to advance your best. 

I don’t think there is ANY stronger form of a resistance that can act as a road block to growing our best selves + lives than that which we can mentally place upon ourselves. .

Being on YOUR team means backing yourself up with encouragement. It means honoring the moving waves we ride in all areas of our lives WITHOUT being judgmental on ourselves in the process.

I LOVE to challenge myself + excuses are actions I choose not to allow in my life on any front.  Ever.

But that’s even more reason why I know it’s so important to respect the days where showing up is the best I got to give that day. Understanding  it’s a temporary moment + not a dictator of my ultimate “success” It breathes space in my mind so that I can ask myself to keep reaching for better. And for me personally, it’s that continual reach that IS real success. 

Never giving up. 

Backing down. 

Never settling. .

The TAKEAWAY:

Respecting the days that are messy or tired in any area of life by not being hard on yourself for it, is like a fucking magic trick that doesn’t allow those days to STICK to you, to slow you down + get in the way to whatever it is you aim to accomplish. 

No, instead when you show yourself support by honoring those days but not allowing them to define you, you are LITERALLY WINNING all the way to accomplishing what you’re aiming for.

It’s what I call:

SUCCESS IN MOTION👊

BDAY SOLOSODE PIC .PNG

A U T H E N T I C I T Y .

.There is nothing more provocative to me than the idea of living as many days as I possibly can being PRESENT + to be living from the expression of my most AUTHENTIC SELF.

✨That is my personal interpretation of TRUE SUCCESS in life.✨

.And on the note of “Life” this new #BlackBeltBeautyRadio Solosode was inspired  by the shift into a new year of my life via my #birthday last week.

.In this new podcast episode I share my perspective on “age”, doing the “smart thing” in life + why it’s so powerful to live from your most authentic self- No matter what.👊
