It is always inspiring to witness the spectacle of the annual Eurovision contest each year, watching the artists who create music, movement and colour through their interpretations of songs they perform.
The aim of the event is often linked to breaking down barriers, smashing perceptions, stereotypes, and unifying cultures as translated by each group or contestant.
Away from the colour and fun is the hard work that is put into the whole event which is planned every year in advance.

Shattering illusions and breaking moulds seems to go with the territory for those dedicated souls who put their bodies and hearts on the line to achieve their long held goals and dreams.
It seems to ring true that in achieving success in business means achieving success in life depending upon which you way you look at it.
When there are setbacks along the way– which there will inevitably be; it could feel to the athlete/artist/ or business owner that disappointments are laid bare in front of them as splintering pieces that have shattered into a million pieces without hope of being put back together in the same way.
However, there is an upside to breaking down in order to rise again. Setbacks can be opportunities for new and different ways of doing things that may not have otherwise come about on an alternate pathway.
Breaking the glass ceiling could mean mastering a new level of income, landing a contract or tender with career advancement possibilities or breaking down barriers or expectations that will have endless benefits for others beside yourself.
Learning a routine can be tedious and make you feel like you will never reach your dreams by doing the same thing over and over but is preparing you for the next stages that will come even with your eyes closed its so well rehearsed.
I am certain you would remember many times as a child thinking that you would never master the skills you and I often take for granted as adults!
