In everyday life, we face different situations and have different attitudes in both situations. One can be more formal, like having dinner with your extended family or meeting with your professor. The other is informal, which is being with your friends or taking a bus ride. In these aspects of our life, we may interact with different people and act completely different from each situation. You may even have a different status that you occupy while in each situation. Also in these settings, there are expressions that are given and given off. It all depends on the people you are with.

For the family dinner, being there in the atmosphere with everyone and the energy you give off is when the performance is happening.

In these settings, my expressions given off can change depending on the mood and what’s happening around me. In practice, I am usually smiling and happy to be in the gym with everyone. But when it comes time to do the actual skill, I am more focus and try to not let ...
