ALL HIS EMPLOYEES
JUMP OUT OF A PLANE
One of the reasons I engage, and have my employees engage, in extreme sports (summitting mountains, jumping out of planes, cave diving) is because this forces you to face your fears. Once I, or my employees, have completed an extreme adventure and faced our fears, we walk away with a renewed sense of “anything is possible.” By forcing your body to do things that your mind is afraid to do, it is impossible to have a negative mindset. Why? Your mind is programmed to support your survival. Worrying never gets you off the mountain or out of that plane; action does, one step at a time.
I have asked them to push their physical limits using the power of their mind. Every time we have come down the mountain or touched the ground after their free-fall, they have been happier and more productive.
