Can anyone please offer me some advise on my mental block? It's gotten to the point where I'm almost in tears due to being really frustrated at myself. I've been cheering for 6 and no joke, my best tumbling skill that i can do properly is a cartwheel. I can do other skills like round offs and handstands but they're not good enough to be placed in a routine. My previous gym was no help with establishing my skills and I was with them for 5 years- majority of the time they wouldn't teach us any tumbling skills in a lesson. My new gym is very good. Most of the girls have never cheered before so it's frustrating seeing them advance while I'm still stuck. My coach tells me I'm doing everything right I just need "more power."- she makes sure we're perfectly doing a skill before advancing and I did into doing round offs. But last week I got pushed back down to handstand pops. I got really frustrated and was about to cry in the middle of practice because I couldn't do it!! Can anyone offer any help on this? I think it's a mental thing too because when I can't do something I start telling myself things like, "you'll never get this," "you won't do it, you'll fail." Please help!
