This morning, I was party to another conversation around all things students are 'good' and 'bad' at doing. This happens a lot in the studio, usually when they hear they have to do an exercise that is difficult or unfamiliar. My favourite response? You don't have to be good at it, you just have to do it.
Don't get me wrong. Form is important. Super important, in fact! Without proper form, you may risk injury. Without proper form, you may be wasting your time. So yeah, maybe there's an element of 'good' involved.
Which brings me to the most important part -- the doing it. Some days you will not want to do it. Other days, you will doubt you can do it. Some folks have been programmed to think they cannot do it. But in the face of all this, you muster up the courage to try. It's in the trying that you learn, not just how to do the exercise, but that you had the power all along. You just had to do it.
