Ep 18: Finding Rhythm and the Bailando Journey with Alienor Salmon

Alienor Salmon and I are exploring what it means to chase after your dream, and there is probably no one more qualified than Alienor to share their journey. She literally wrote the book on it.

Alienor is a French Britt who dreamed of dance and working for the UN. Not only did she beat her goal of working for the United Nations by 30, but she was also already preparing to leave for her next grand adventure: dancing her way across Latin America. 

The American dream is often boiled down to what your title and how much do you make. By achieving some preconceived level, people expect they will find happiness. Did you know there is a science to happiness? As Alienor explains, 24 character traits are needed at one time or another to experience happiness. Kindness, love of learning, appreciation of beauty, honesty, optimism, and humor are just a few character keys to unlocking true happiness.

While sharing a glimpse of her journey with us, Alienor drives home the truth of being truly happy. We all have dreams, and those dreams deserve fulfillment. It takes courage and planning to give up everything you know to pursue what is in your heart. Take away the boundaries of time and money, and the possibilities are endless, not impossible.

Standing out can be summed up by identifying your dream and pursuing it in a way that only you can. Stand-outs don’t ignore obstacles; they identify and overcome them. 

If you can take anything away from Alienor and apply it immediately, it is this: Anything is possible as long as you take the first step – in dancing and in life. Find your rhythm and step into your destiny.

Rise. Shine. Impact. Define your success, don’t let it define you.
