I really love his work with freedivers.
Just reposting this so I can find it in the future since the vimeo version was taken down.
The video is kind of overly dramatic but the message is sound. How honest are you? I run into people all the time who lie to themselves about what they can accomplish, what holds them back, why they stay content. For me, it’s frustrating to talk to someone like that. It’s frustrating because I see myself in them, my past self. Oh, I can’t do this or that for “blank” reason. The walls of disillusion we put up just to keep hold of what we currently have, but without the understanding that the only thing one can hold on to is self. People come and go; Materialism is just a perishable over time.
Oh! you can let go though! You just need to be able to sacrifice what you currently have for the potential of something greater. And, even if you fail at trying to obtain that greatness, you would still have succeeded in gaining the lessoned learned from failure to try to reach that greatness once more. If you have a dream, follow it. If you get to your dream and find it to be a nightmare, aim for a new dream. No matter what, remember that your existence is literally a blink of an eye compared to the grand existence of the stars, so take your time lightly. Be vigilant and strike swift on the mark.
