9 lessons for rock climbing

       This TED talk talks about the important life lessons from rock climber called Matthews Childs learned from 35 years of rock climbing 9 important lessons from rock climbing.

     he talked about 9 rock climbing lessons that I learned and I actually thought they were pretty helpful are ,don't let go never let go because you always feel like letting go way before your body does and hang in there and you will find a better way than falling. lesson 2 hesitation is bad, the last thing you want to do is momentum is good and never stop because of hesitation. Life lesson 3 have a plan When your climbing, you always want to plan ahead because when you plan ahead towards the hardest part, you know what to do when you reach a hard part and it will lead to success. lesson the move is the end- each individual move you have to complete. lesson  5 know how to rest  you always have to take time to rest to regroup, calm yourself, focus and keep going.  lesson 6 fear sucks fear always take your mind to worst possible decision and destination. lesson  7 opposites are good- the easiest looking destination and choice isn't the best, sometimes the opposite is good. lesson 8 Strength is not needed Having strength means nothing to rock climbing as typically people think you need arm and leg strength to have success but balance is more critical then strength. lesson 9 know how to let go  once you know you can't keep going and you know it's going to happen. This TED talk was great and showed me all of effort it takes to rock climb and how terrifying  it can be. I would recommend this ted talk to anyone who likes rock climbing or would be rock climbing in the future.
