You may never climb a mountain in Yosemite.
You may never scale 800 feet without the support of a rope or a harness.
You may never trust an inch wide gap in a granite cliff as the only thing saving you from instant death.
But, if all works out according to plan, you will do things you are not ready for.
You will climb new obstacles that are bigger than your current abilities.
You will find yourself without as much support from friends or family members as you might like.
You will face opportunities where the difference between success and failure is only an inch wide.
And when you do, I hope that you’ll remember this ridiculous video because there are two important things it teaches us:
1. There will be moments where you’re not sure what you’ve gotten yourself into. Everyone feels that way when they try something new. Don’t let that feeling tell you to stop.
2. You’ve got to shut fear off if you’re going to reach new heights in new ways. Don’t see the arrival of fear as failure, but don’t listen to it either. It’s a tremendous distraction and will ultimately knock you off whatever mountain you’re on.
