Adventurous people are risk-takers. They believe the reward of the experience far outweighs any negative. They have also usually learned to control their emotions and live in the moment.
Skydiving is the perfect activity for this exercise for not only control, but focus. Adventurers must not only learn to control their emotions, but they must also be able to focus and follow directions in order to have a safer experience.
Learning to calm your mind and focus on the task in front of you can be applied in so many ways in life.
Facing your demons head-on is so difficult and extremely brave. When you fear something, you must be able to look past the fear and find the stronger emotion on the other side of the fear. Once you find that emotion, do not take your eyes off it. It will be the beacon that guides you straight through the fear.
Once you do that, you are unstoppable, and you can achieve things others would never even attempt. This helps build your confidence in yourself like nothing else.
The view that comes with skydiving is life changing. It is so beautiful and something most people will never experience. You float in and out of clouds and fly through rainbows.
The quiet and calm that comes over after the initial rush from jumping is beautiful. It is pure chaos and peace all in one. That’s really life when you think about it. The difference comes in how you decide to view the experience. Perspective is powerful and can transform a mindset.
Humble and Grateful Mindset
Skydiving can also remind you how small you are in this world and how grateful we should all be for the beauty that surrounds us every day. Even in all the chaos, you can slow down and find beauty and peace.
No person is safe from stress, but we do get to decide how we react. It also connects you to the people who go with you. When you achieve something that awesome with someone, you forge a deeper and lasting bond.
How many people can actually say they went skydiving? Well, it is about .1% of the population in the US. Imagine how bad ass that really is. People look at you differently when they know you jumped out of an airplane.
From an internal perspective, you are forever changed. It might have been a bucket list item or a promise you made to yourself. Whatever the reason, achieving that elevates something on the inside and gives you the confidence to know you can handle what this life gives you.
