If you want to learn the secrets of skateboarding, progress faster than all your friends, and amaze them with all your new tricks put these 3 secrets of skateboarding to use:

1. Think Big

All highly successful people have big aspirations.

If you’re going to dream, you might as well dream big. Same goes for what you think you can do. Think as if you were a professional skateboarder. Imagine all the possibilities of what you could have, do, or become.

Big thinkers set goals. If you don’t have any goals, you’ll have no direction, and you will probably never reach your full potentialAll professional skateboarders set goals, consciously or unconsciously, that lead them to where they are today.

Know the outcome you want from skateboarding. Don’t be afraid to imagine all you could have. Let your imagination go wild for a minute. Write down all your goals and see yourself reaching them.

2. Visualize Success

See yourself reaching your goals daily. Make it an obsession for you to reach your goals.

Picture your tricks happening perfectly over and over in your head. See this as if it were actually happening. Imagine how it would feel, what it would look like, and then practice doing the trick in your imagination enough times for you to believe you actually can.

It’s not practice makes perfect, its perfect practice makes perfect. -Tony Robbins

Something you can do to remind yourself of what you’re working towards is to create a vision board aka. inspiration board. You could hang this on your wall and everyday imagine what it would be like to reach those goals.

3. Feel Good

Think positive and expect favorable results.

A large part of feeling good is avoiding negativity and focusing on positivity. Use positive words when thinking or talking. Never say you can’t do something because it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Instead, you could say “it’s a possibility” or “I could learn how”.

In time, your mental attitude will begin to change everything around you, including your skateboarding.

Feeling good is the best way to bring more things for you to feel good about. Spend time hanging out with people with good energy, instead of associating with people who only whine, make excuses and talk sh*t. Skate with friends who inspire you and you’ll see better results, guaranteed!
