Doing a “Felix” The Ultimate Leap

Can you imagine doing something ~ anything; so big and outlandish that your name has the potential of going down in modern lexicon as a verb.  How would it feel to be at the center of an accomplishment that instantly becomes a metaphor for achievement an achievement that is beyond anything previously imaginable?

I suspect this is going to be the fate of Felix Baumgartner, Austrian skydiver and daredevil who literally stood on the edge of the stratosphere and jumped into the great unknown. It really is mind boggling to imagine jumping into space 24 miles above the earth and falling at a speed greater than the speed of sound,  prepared to endure the physical force of 2.5 g’s (that’s 2.5 times the force of gravity) WOW!

Obviously this event took great planning and preparation by a team of World Class experts. A team that included some of the smartest and greatest minds in the world who came together to mitigate the risks, calculate the probabilities, develop viable solutions and diminish the odds of disaster or loss of life. Clearly, all of this could not have happened without the significant financial sponsorship of Red Bull. The fact remains that after all the planning was done and it came to take that step into the great unknown, there was only one pair of shoes on the door step of the capsule. Felix stood there alone, steadfast and committed, then, he jumped.

Ask yourself what is holding you back from doing a “Felix”, holding you back from taking that giant leap forward toward the goals that you have yet to pursue.
