What does it mean when people say, Don't be afraid to fall when skiing?
I took a ski trip this weekend and my instructor must've told me a hundred times, You can't be afraid to fall. Umm, what does that mean?
Fear of falling makes you fall more than you normally would. It's like learning to keep your balance while biking for the first time.
Being afraid of falling will invariably cause you to fall more. Being nervous will cause you to make mistakes and it also will take the fun out of it. That doesn't mean you should be fearless either because that can lead to recklessness. Just relax and ski at your ability level. If you do take on a black diamond, you don't have to be afraid, just be cautious.
Well it is probably because there is a likelihood that you could fall but if you focus your mind on that you will be skiing nervously which may cause you to make silly mistakes and cause yourself to fall.
They should probably say instead "don't think about the possibility that you could fall, instead focus on what you are doing and what you are supposed to do to enjoy your skiing".
As much you worry to don't fall, you are putting your energy on the "don't" execept to open yourself for the "do"...."just do it" (like the very famous sport brand said)...When is to much rules, to much "dont" the real magic get lost and the flow stop. If you let the fear lead your life you wont do anything.... so fall when you are skiing is more than alow to succed and will keep you in balance and will put you in track to learn how to do it!!!.
Because successfully keeping your feet under you when sliding down a mountain depends on commitment. Either you're skiing, or you're setting yourself up for a fall. Think of the famous Star Wars quote, by Yoda, "There is no 'try'; there is only do." Of course you shouldn't overstep your skill, but if you're thinking about falling, then you're not thinking about skiing. You could expand this - together with other answers - into a hub, y'know.
