The Attitude of Great Skateboarders

September 9, 2013

Let’s face it, if you don’t have the right mindset for skateboarding, it’s going to be tough being a skateboarder. It’s going to be a constant struggle trying to learn new tricks and it’s going to take an enormous amount of confidence for you to even think about landing certain tricks.

Having the right attitude is key for skateboarding success. This will give you the ability to land tricks quicker & easier, your style will improve, your confidence will increase, and you will also be able to land tricks more consistently than ever before.

Anything Is Possible

You have the potential to be a great skateboarder.

To tap into that potential, you have to believe that you can do anything you set your mind to.

“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.”

You can choose to believe that you’re no good at skateboarding, or you can believe that you were born to skate, and that you are on your way to becoming a great skateboarder.

Whichever you decide to believe will become your reality.

There Is No Competition

Trying to be someone else all the time limits what you can do as a person.

“From this point, your strategy is to make everyone else get on your level; you’re not going down to theirs. You’re not competing with anyone else, ever again. They’re going to have to compete with you. From now on, the end result is all that matters.” – Tim S. Grover

If you accept your uniqueness and express your creativity through your talents and abilities, there’s no competition and no comparison.

Being yourself is the greatest asset you have as an individual. There is no one in the world out there exactly like you. Use that to your advantage.

Accept your uniqueness, be creative and express your individuality.

Skateboarding Is Fun

For the love of skateboarding, have fun.

Getting into a state of curiosity and playfulness is the best way for learning new skateboard tricks.

By having fun and enjoying the moment you tap into a creative state of flow, where you can amaze yourself, and your friends, with all the new and amazing tricks you begin to learn.

If you’re not having fun, then you’re not doing it right.

Skateboarding was meant to be fun.

Summary

For you to become the greatest skateboarder you can be, you have to adopt the attitude of a professional skater.

  • Anything is possible if you believe in yourself and take action.
  • Being yourself is your greatest asset because there’s no competition or comparison.
  • Having fun allows you to tap into a creative state of flow where everything becomes effortless and natural.

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!
