Creating a Figure Skating Community
There is something INCREDIBLY POWERFUL about coming together in community with others.
As human beings it is just natural to want to be around others who share like-minded ideas, goals, ambitions, struggles, advice, etc.
Figure Skating is an individual sport that can sometimes feel so isolating.
“I am competing against you so I can’t be your friend, my daughter is your daughter’s biggest competitor so we can’t sit together in the stands, my skaters are your skater’s rivals so I can’t share advice on how to help your skater land her double axel.”
Does any of this sound familiar?
LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE
When we focus on our competitors doing poorly or treat them disrespectfully, i.e.. wishing they will fall in their long program, hoping they get injured before Sectionals, hoping they have a bad day we actually attract this negative energy into our own lives and this often becomes our reality!
When we adopt the mentality of THE ONLY THING WE CAN CONTROL IS OUR OWN BEHAVIOUR we take ownership of how we treat each other in the locker room, in the stands and on the ice.
YOU WANT MORE POSITIVE THINGS TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE FOCUS ON POSITIVE THOUGHTS TOWARD YOURSELF AND OTHERS.
FIGURE SKATING COMMUNITY
So, getting back to the idea of community……we are so lucky to have the technology of today to allow us to create a virtual community with the click of a button! I have created a Facebook group called
Figure Skater’s Mind-Body Performance
and I would like you all to become part of it! The objective of the group is to create community between skaters, parents, and coaches who love Figure Skating and want to learn more about the mental training side of the sport. Join, pose questions, interact with others and become part of this community!
*If you can’t find us then simply “friend” me on Facebook ‘Rebekah Dixon’ and I will add you.
**If you know others who would be interested in joining share the group with them.
See you there!
