The First Time
In the previous few days of street luging, quad biking and bungee jumping I came across a quote that I is important for people to think about every now and then; “when was the last time you did something for the first time?”
We are so easily pulled into the monotony of our day to day routines that we can easily forget the excitement of doing something for the first time. It’s a different feeling of achievement when you don’t kill yourself, or better yet perform admirably in something foreign. Using your brain and body in ways you previously couldn’t imagine to conquer the unknown can remind us of how many things we are capable of if only we chose to extend ourselves.
A great man once said “For me, life is about continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, and to conquer.” I urge everybody to step outside of your known world and accept the challenge of doing something for the first time; no matter the outcome you’ve already achieved something great.
