This is #LordOfTheDance lead dancer Erin-Kate Mcilravey.
This photograph is the culmination of decades of work. She began dancing as a child. She was trained by a Team Lord OG (Caroline Greene-Parfery). She committed herself to the strenuous physical fitness requirements to be not just a pro dancer, but a Michael Flatley dancer. When the pandemic hit almost a year ago, she didn't stop training, didn't stop drilling. She stayed focused.
And, as a result: last month, she was one of only 90 #IrishDance pros on tour anywhere in the world, performing to packed stadiums, appearing on terrestrial broadcast TV in front of millions of people.
There is absolutely no difference between her and you. Whatever you want in life, put in the work when no one else will. Go harder when everyone else eases off. Take every "Yes, but..." thought and throw it away.
It's 2021. It's a new year. Get to work.
