Julianne Hough: Being active makes me feel incredible

Julianne Hough feels most like her true self when she’s exercising and building up a sweat.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Actress Julianne Hough believes exercising and feeling alive creates success.

The 27-year-old star first found fame as a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars before moving into acting. She maintains her slim figure with daily exercise sessions.

And in a new blog post on her website the stunning blonde admitted fitness makes her the happiest, not how much money she makes or how famous she becomes.

“The dictionary defines the word ‘success’ as: the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame,” Julianne wrote on Tuesday (13Oct15). “Wait, what? That’s certainly not my definition of success. Strayer University brought attention to this interpretation of the word and they didn’t just give it the ol’ eye roll. They’ve actually started a campaign to redefine the Webster Dictionary’s meaning of success. How cool is that?!

“I don’t believe success has anything to do with wealth or prestige. Someone could be extremely well off financially, able to afford anything money can buy, but not have a great group of friends or a family to enjoy it with. That doesn’t sound very successful! To me, success has more to do with the moments that make us feel spectacular, attaining personal achievements or goals, and finding happiness.”

So when Strayer University asked to shoot footage of Julianne doing something that makes her feel the most successful, she opted for a workout. While she could have chosen to be shot on set or at a photo shoot, exercising was an obvious choice for the star.

“It was a no brainer,” she continued. “I chose to let them film me being active, working out and dancing since that’s what makes me feel alive and like my true self. Those feelings are the makings of personal success.”

Julianne is currently being kept busy in her role as a judge on Dancing with the Stars, having previously been on the receiving end of the critiques.
