Fourth Grade Girl Talks Herself Into First Ski Jump

Facing your fears is part of being human. We’ve all had to talk ourselves into doing something, whether we actually verbalized the encouragement or just played it silently in our brain.

The fourth grade girl in the video below is a verbalizer. With a camera running, she methodically convinces herself she has what it takes to make her first ski jump.

“I’ll be fine. I’ll do it. Here goes something, I guess. You can do this,” she says. After getting herself in the right mindset, she’s off with a simple “I’m going.”

What do you know, but she absolutely nails the jump. “It’s so fun”, she says upon landing.  Then she lets out a mighty roar of well-deserved joy.
