I'm just thinking about how much time and training it takes a person to be this skilled to even attempt stunts like these. Incredible commitment or just committed? These attempts are still a great reminder of our human abilities and of our potential. This is basically saying that if you learn, train hard and experience something enough you can use that skill to accomplish some amazing things. So we should all be incredibly thankful for the adventurers who push the limits. They inspire us to keep trying and not to give up to easy. They also show us the many different ways of enjoying the physical world. When we fail at our adventurous attempts it reminds us of the dangers and the difficulties, but we also learn that failure is just another process of learning. Adventure SayingsKnowing your Limits
The greatest benefit from watching other athletes performing amazing physical abilities is that it gives the beginner an idea of what can be accomplished if they practice and train for many months. But the level that you reach and the experience that you have will never be the same for each person. You don't have to be the best in order to enjoy an activity or sport because a sense of accomplishment can happen at any level. Reaching your goal doesn't always have to be about being the best. Reaching your goal is about discovering your own personal limits and not about comparing yourself to others. If you sacrifice to much of yourself just for one thing you will soon discover that you most likely missed out on things of much greater importance. So choose your journeys well and always have a backup plan that includes other goals of similar importance. Don't put all your Eggs in one Basket
