Understanding Competition-- Mindset

Within the competition arena there are rules that must be in place to separate the average from the superior. Being good at your craft doesn’t make you GREAT and/or outstanding. 
*Being late is not being the best… Even if you cannot help the circumstances that made you late…
*Not maintaining the proper professional attitude is not being the best. You have to be able to read the situation and change your attitude to play fair and be a good competitor.
*Not being prepared with the proper equipment is not being the best… You need to think through your planning and execute properly so you will be on time and have EVERYTHING YOU NEED. It is not the responsibility of Bronner Bros. to help you have what you need, only to provide what is stated in the rules and regulations.
*If the competition is below your expectations —that is where your creativity and ingenuity should step in to make your creation outstanding no matter what you are given.  We cannot control each competitors expectations. This is our “Competition Mindset.” 
The Competition promise:
Not reading rules and regulations, arriving late, arguing with the staff, disrespecting fellow competitors, using your phone when told not to, not being present (competitor and model),  not having your head in the game (physically and mentally), and coming unprepared will lead you to point deduction and you will not have enough points to place or qualify as a winner. Don’t start out in the negative with point deductions… Be positive that you are prepared.
