A Letter from One Skater to Another
I constantly hear people saying “I can’t do it” …. I also have that problem but I try to remember and apply the words of the Mad Hatter..
Alice: “it’s impossible”
The Mad Hatter: “only if you believe it is”
Take the God damn negativity out of your mind! Your mind is more powerful than you think it is and when you put yourself down your performance will dwindle along with your self confidence.
Tonight at practice I was working with someone who said that she couldn’t do something.. I told her to take the word “can’t” out of her vocabulary and sure enough she mastered the concept on her next try. Not everything we do will come easy to us, which is why we PRACTICE!
If we all believe in ourselves then we all will improve and become amaZing!!!! Without self confidence we cannot have team confidence (if that makes sense)
So, next time you hear someone say that can’t do something mention the above Alice in Wonderland quote (one of my favs) and encourage them to try again.
Love you guys,
