Taking a Flying Leap

Sometimes, the act of creating something new feels like jumping off a cliff, doesn't it? The ground beneath your feet completely disappears. All the familiar reference points are gone and you need a ton of courage to proceed. And so... in the spirit of "a moving picture is worth a thousand words," check this out, oh aspiring innovators...

PS: How does this relate to your life? It does, but only YOU know. If you make any connections, let us know. Happy leaping!

Great video!

Here are ten possibilities for starters:

(1) Fearlessly trusting in your own abilities
(2) Having faith in the journey
(3) Becoming comfortable with what you can control and what you can't
(4) Having your eye on the end goal
(5) Enjoying every moment of the ride
(6) Not being deterred or swayed from your vision or dream
(7) Following the path YOU wish to take
(8) Taking YOUR life in YOUR hands
(9) Finding the courage to make choices and decisions; however tough or frightening
(10) Letting go!


That said, I personally won't be volunteering to take the leap they did! I wonder if they are insured for it?

Regards

Paul
