The importance of relaxing and remembering to have fun is absolutely true. If I'm worried about doing everything right or psyching myself out because it's steeper than I'm really comfortable with, I'll wipe out all over the place (mostly because stressing out leads me to keeping my knees too straight). As soon as I relax and remember why I'm doing this in the first place, everything becomes much more fluid and I gain a lot more confidence.
