I've recently had a lot of people in the skating community ask me for tips on building confidence on the ice... my best advice: practice with purpose and share your passion with as many people as possible. The two most important things for me every time I step on the ice are 1. Setting a reasonable and achievable goal to better myself by doing something that is beyond my comfort zone and 2. Sharing my experience with others. Skating is a highly competitive sport... do not compete against others- compete against your best self. Step onto the ice confidently, knowing that your journey is your own, and the only person you have to worry about beating is the skater you were before you stepped on the ice. When you practice with purpose and passion, the people with the same desires will find their way to you... and before you know it, your confidence will come from knowing that your journey positively effects the journey of others. Be humble, be supportive, and be dedicated to the process! Figure skating is a lifestyle- live it up!
