28 steps to winning a pole competition 

For almost everyone FEAR is what holds us back 
Fear of failure
Fear of not being good enough
Fear of what our friends and family might think 

With plenty of time to prepare (minimum 6 weeks)

  • Think about your ultimate outcome
  1. Is it just to compete for the first time ever. 
  2. Is it to be better than I was before 
  3. Is it to be placed 1st 2nd or 3rd 
  4. Or IS IT TO WIN - so think of your winning theme to include
