I’ve got a real affinity for the GoPro HD camera’s. I’m hoping to get one for Christmas this year because there is nothing like it out there that compares. The ability to capture moments like skiing down some fine powder in first person is such an amazing thing. Regular people are now able to do this with a very inexpensive camera and traditionally in the past was done via movie equipment. I highly recommend you check them out if your the adventure type.
Why am I talking about this camera and posting this video? This video came across my inbox as I think I subscribed to something around these cameras so I get weekly videos. Jeb Corliss and Roberta Mancino are well known in the base jumping and wingsuit flying community and they share some pretty awesome perspective on life.
What really fascinates me on this video is after the scene you see below it starts off with dreams. I love how Jeb describes his nightmare as “sitting at an office working on a computer, that’s a nightmare, I cannot even imagine something more horrifying”, then Roberta says “or any other job”. (Amen to that!) Jeb goes on to say that “every individual person has their dream, and every individual person has a right to live their dream”. Lastly he says that his dream is no better or worse than anyone else’s, but it is his. Well said. Basically to sum it up, as I’ve mentioned before, it means don’t steal someone else’s dream no matter what it is or what they do to obtain it.
Jed quotes this perfect quote he heard when he was a kid. “The key to happiness is having dreams, the key to success is fulfilling those dreams.” – Anonymous
Lastly Jed ends off by saying, “There really are no limits, the only limits are the ones you place on yourself.” Well said, well said. Whatever it is your out there trying to achieve don’t let anyone stand in your way, don’t take it from me, watch the video and be inspired!
