Today, I’m focusing on the many advantages you can gain by competing and performing in skating.  My own competitive skating career helped me develop many good traits, such as increased self-confidence and discipline.  

Here’s an article from Raising Figure Skaters about increased self-confidence and my sister, Chrissy: Self-Confidence Makes Everything Better.

And here’s an article from Raising Figure Skaters about increased self-motivation, Chea, and me: Success after Competitive Skating Isn’t Just Luck.

I’m also focusing on getting the most out of a skating competition. If you haven’t read my previous articles on being prepared for and getting the most out of a competition, be sure to read them before your first – or next – competition.
