Just received my A Can't Post

So I am here introducing myself as a newly A licensed skydiver. I have noticed a new nervousness in myself b4 a skydive with other people, I find this nervousness actually really awesome b/c once I leave the plane it's gone and all I can do is focus on trying to get to the formation and when it goes good it's an awesome feeling knowing I did it. But not making it kinda makes me upset with myself b/c I know I should be able to do it! Anybody else ever feel this?

Congrats, and yes. My nerves have always disappeared once out the door :)

Like many others, I find the plane ride to be the scariest part.

One of the things I love about skydiving is that once my foot leaves the door, I'm not thinking about life's little bothers....GFs, money, bills, assholes, goobermints, dz.com mods, et al.

It's pure, unadulterated fun!

Welcome to the forums! Smile I have those feelings also. Do you have any perfectionist qualities in other aspects of your life?

I think it's natural to feel some disappointment in stuff like that.

Harness the energy and use it to get better. Visualization is an awesome tool to use, even pro athletes use it. Cool
