Water skiing is another extreme sport that I was able to do in a close by place. It would be much better if it snowed here, but sadly it doesn’t. So, I skied in the water. I was able to do water skiing, as I had all the requirements needed.
I was instantly able to identify my strengths and weaknesses. As I was aware about it, I could improve much more by focusing on my weaknesses and also gradually improving my strengths as well. Knowing our strengths and weaknesses help us grow. For example, my shoulder’s strength wasn’t adequate in order to lift me out of the water, I had to workout in order to do that, and after many attempts, I was finally able to do it.
It was challenging as it required tremendous amount of upper and lower body strength. Maintaining the position was much easier after you are out of the water, but the start was the most difficult for me. Undertaking this was really beneficial for me as I have another extreme sport I can do when I am somewhere with the appropriate surroundings. It is important to undertake new challenges and learn new skills as they are steps to build the future.
A lot of perseverance and commitment were needed while learning how to water ski, as it is a very challenging task, especially during the beginning. If I gave up in the beginning, there is no way I would be able to learn it.
Normally, it is very easy for me to work with others whom I know, as I know my own strengths and weaknesses as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the others. It was really easy for me to work with others on this as if no one else was there, it was impossible to ski, as someone needs to drive the boat. Collaboration and teamwork are important as when we are doing a task with another person it tends to get easier as the amount of work per person gets lesser.
