Follow Your Dream, Day #496: A Lockdown Message from Michael Flatley

Staying motivated as an Irish dancer when the world is in lockdown can be a challenge. Let's hear from the man who worked thirty-five *years* to become an "overnight" success.

Focus on improving yourself and making the most of your time. The road ahead is never easy. You'll come across every kind of challenge you can imagine -- and a few you never could have imagined. It's okay to get knocked down; just pick yourself back up. You may not be able to control what happens around you, but you *can* control how you react to it.

Never underestimate the power of one mind, focused and determined, to change the world. *Be* that change.
