Will Rhea: Lessons from Barefooting

20140115-060137.jpg

I love to barefoot water ski. It is a fun and challenging sport. Over the years, barefooting has helped me grow mentally and physically stronger, and I have learned some important lessons about life from the sport.

Barefooting has taught me to be more respectful of my parents. They are the ones who make the sport possible for me. It takes a lot of time and money to compete in the sport, and I am thankful that they support me.

Barefooting has also taught me that if I want something, I have to work hard for it. I have learned not to quit when I fail, but to work harder. I do not expect to get things right away like I did a couple of years ago.

If I had a hard fall when I was younger, I was done for the day. I would get very mad and give up easily. The WBC instructors have taught me that messing up is just part of the process of getting better. I have learned that no matter how many times I fall, I should not give up until I succeed. Now, every time I learn a new trick, I want to succeed no matter how many falls I have to take.

It is a great feeling when I know I tried very hard and I succeeded. That is a life lesson for many things. Barefooting has helped me become more mature in so many ways. I am glad to be a part of this sport.
