“We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe.”
-DAVID BLAINE, magician
The great David Blaine once stood atop an 80 foot pole for over 30 hours and then proceeded to jump off into a pile of cardboard boxes.
How did he do it?
He practiced at twenty feet. Then at forty feet. And finally at eighty.
When he performed the stunt, he imagined that he was jumping off and landing on air mattresses (which is what he did when he was training).
Why did he do it?
Because he had a fear of heights and wanted to overcome it.
That’s mental cross-training at its best.
What can you do today to put yourself into an uncomfortable position so you can be more COMFORTABLE and perform at a higher level?
The only way out is through.
