Ep. 5 Interview With Will Asher Show Notes
In this inspiring interview, Will Asher, a 2x World Champion, a 5x Masters Champion, and many more achievements in his career, gave My Boss My Mom an inside look into the mindset of a true Master. Will questions everything, tells us how to overcome a plateau, and why being clear in your goals is important for training.
- In water skiing, there is no reason really to turn a ski if you’re not going to go around buoys. Meaning, if your goal is to learn to run the course or get better at running the course, learning on open water to turn a ski only means you will have to unlearn things when you put a course in front of you.
- It’s important to understand what you are practicing for.
- Natural talent can get you pretty far, it takes work, practice, and dedication to go to the next level.
- Sometimes the industry standard of the way things are done needs to be challenged and blown up, sometimes it just comes down to principles. It’s ok to prove or disprove an industry standard.
- Repetition is important to understand and be confident that you can get out of things when things aren’t going well. It keeps you from panicking and teaches you how to get out of bad situations.
- If you are a person that can only visualize yourself crashing, maybe it’s best not to use the practice of visualization because you don’t want to visualize the things you don’t want to do.
- It’s important to remember that if you are starting something later in life, don’t try to do too much learning at once to “catch up” it actually slows you down and dilutes the training.
- When your competing or even not competing, it's important to learn how to lose and not stop progressing forward.
- Self-worth shouldn't be tied up in winning or losing.
