The Key to a Captivating Performance


We admire great performers.

Whether in sports, business, or any other field, we can all appreciate true greatness.

But do you have to be born with unique talents to achieve it? Is there a magical gene lottery?

If you take the mystery out of the equation, you are left with a simple truth. 

That path to greatness requires hard work, dedication, and preparation. 

 It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. 

For this 5-Minute Friday, I revisit a conversation I had with Valentin Chmerkovskiy, where he shares how to achieve your “Personal Greatness.”

Valentin Chmerkovskiy is a Ukrainian-American professional dancer, best known for his appearances on the U.S. version of ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ where he won twice. He is a two-time World Latin Dance Champion (Junior and Youth) and a 14-time U.S. National Latin Dance champion.
