Ep. 7 Austin Abel Interview Show Notes
Austin Abel trained like he has never trained before for the Malibu Open 2017. First, it was cancelled due to the algae bloom at the site in Milwaukee. Abel reset his whole training to a different ski site only to get hurt just two weeks before the event. Watch how he copes with the disappointment, but also some of the positives that came out of the ordeal
- He thought of every scenario he could think of to train for the Malibu Open.
- When he hurt his back, he came to the realization after a few days that he would not have trained any differently. Sometimes you just get hurt.
- During his mindset process, he brings up a good point about a home lake vs. an away lake, same idea as home court advantage vs. an away game.
- Home court almost brings you to a complacent place if you let it.
- It can be rather distracting because you know everyone and the amount of people that wants your attention is more, so focus time is not as prevalent at a home lake.
- The way you perceive things can really impact your mindset
- Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.
- There are only two options, do or don’t do.
- He came up with a Personal Best (PB) tournament for his ski school and what happens when everyone is out to compete only for themselves, the surrounding environment is much more supportive.
- When you have a supportive environment, it tends to breed people going beyond what they think they are capable of.
- You get to be the best version of you
