Are you ready to go pro? Here's our awesome athlete checklist inspired by Dance Moms Abby Lee Miller
#1. You’re the one who hashes out problems and concerns with your teacher or coach, not your mom or dad.
#2. Everything you do is full-out, even if it’s just a rehearsal.
#3. You only need to be corrected once.
#4. You take criticism with a solemn nod and a “thank you,” and maybe a follow-up Q on how you can improve.
#5. And when you feel the need to cry it out, you do it in private at home.
#6. You never miss practice unless you have a really good reason—like being injured, sick or taking the SATs.
#7. Even if you’re benched, you always support the team.
#8. You take it upon yourself to help others…without being asked.
#9. And when there’s someone out there who does something better than you, you ask them for advice on how to improve your own skills.
#10. You love what you do, and couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
