Don’t forget to smile. A positive mindset is essentia l for success. Use positive words and self-encouragement on the rocks. Mind over matter. You need to ful ly believe in yourself and in success, no matter how tired/confused/scared you are. Be patient while reading sequences (down climbing to a stance is a great way to give yourself more time to f igure out moves). Look at the positive sides of failure, there is always something to lear n and improve on for next time.
