Quotes We Keep In Mind:
“It [Skydiving] absolutely has gotten easier. It’s not that the fear or the anxiety is gone, totally. But it absolutely gets easier with iteration.”
“I’ve continued to be relentless on anything that I want to do.”
“So when I jumped, and I landed, and I was not dead, right? It was like my brain was fundamentally altered, in the sense that not all you can do anything, but anything that I’m afraid of, or I think I can’t do, I have to at least question whether that’s true or not.”
