HOW TO DO A BACK FLIP
Before I was a musician, I was a competitive gymnast. I was actually pretty good and won a couple of High School National Championships. And today... today, I'm going to teach you how to do a back flip in 11 simple and easy steps. Read on:
1 - Remember that people have done them for years.
You are not the first. This is possible.
2 - Acknowledge that your brain is a liar.
Because it is.
3 - Your brain will tell say things like “You’re going to die.”
4 - Your heart will begin to beat like you’re going to die.
5 - You hate the sensation of flipping because you can’t see where you are going.
That’s okay. That’s natural. But, completely ignore this feeling.
6 - Your stomach will begin to feel like it’s turning inside out.
It’s not. That’s just adrenaline.
7 - Your lungs may gasp for air as if you are breathing your last.
Relax, you are not. Things are about to get awesome.
8 - Now ignore the terrible, painful failure scenarios that bounce around like bullets in your head.
They are make believe. It’s just your imagination.
9 - Tell yourself “I can do this.”
Because that’s the truth. You can. And you need to be reminded. At least, I do.
10 - Finally: Tell yourself “I will do this.”
Decide and commit. That’s important.
Your heart flips first, then the body follows.
11 - Jump.
