I’ll be the first one to admit that I know nothing about skateboarding
and I wouldn’t have the first clue on how to coach it!
I’m the father of three girls that have zero interest in skateboarding, but
I’ve seen the wounds and scars of many nephews over the years that have
taken to the sport.
The only way to become a better skateboarder is to fail and fail often. To
advance your skills one has to be Fearless.
So coaching skateboarding?
I don’t think so…
The only coaching going on here is self coaching.
…try it again
…try it again
…and so on until you master the skill(s)
Sound familiar? Can you relate?
Even though the skateboarder’s failures can be external in the form of wounds
and scars, whereas yours are typically more internal. In either scenario our
confidence can and will be shaken from time to time. Causing us to be afraid
of making a mistake.
You Must Remain Fearless!
When you’re in a Fearless State write down what you’re feeling, and how
you think you got into this mindset. Did you have any triggers that prompted
you to perform fearlessly? If so, write them down too!
Too many times we focus on the failures vs creating a consistent and repeatable
mindset that will decrease or eliminate them altogether.
Know the how and the why of the Fearless Mindset.
Fearlessness Conquers Failure
