Persistence in Skateboarding
The other day I was at the skatepark and decided, “Before I leave I am going to do a Kickflip Manual to Tre Flip out.”. After 20 times of trying to land this trick I thought to myself, “Why haven’t I landed it yet?”. I had landed this trick before, matter of fact, I had landed this trick a bunch of times. why couldn’t I land it now?
This got me thinking about how in skateboarding, persistence is key.
Persistence means that you are going to keep trying no matter what comes up. It doesn’t matter if you fall, it doesn’t matter if you get tired. It doesn’t matter what happens, you keep at it and don’t give up.Aaron Kyro
That is a really cool part about skateboarding. It teaches us to keep working at what we set out to do and no matter what happens stick with it until we do it.
If you ask a good skateboarder how they got good, they didn’t just wake up one day and were good. Their skill came from persisting for a long time, try after try, months and months or years and years of work. They never gave up! That is the key.
If you learn how to persist through anything, it will not only help you with skateboarding but it will also carry over into other aspects of your life.
That is one of the reasons why skateboarding is such an awesome sport.
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this video and moral of the story is- Don’t give up!
