Imagine you’re going to climb a rock. People are watching. You are stressed.

The best thing to do is ignore the audience, pay little attention to the rock, and focus yourself on yourself. Where is your foot going to go? Your hand? How are you going to get them there? How will you move your weight?

The rock should be included just enough to dictate body position, as your hands and feet will match holds on the rock.

The audience should determine little to nothing. Some element of showmanship may be necessary, and if so, a flashy way to climb might be warranted. But merely for the purpose of climbing the rock, the audience should be ignored.

This is easier said than done.
