I just finished listening to Nims Purja on Joe Rogan. Nims' film "14 Peaks" is a must-watch for any dedicated LoW member and I'd highly recommend the Rogan podcast as well. Nims completed what everyone else thought was absolutely impossible - climbing the 14 highest peaks in the world in a span of six months. He beat the previous record by several years. He's a wildman.
Listening to Nims share his journey made me reflect. Yes - he did something incredible that was thought to be impossible. But haven't we all done things we thought were impossible? To me - the difference is in the magnitude versus the absolute difficulty. If we took the time to really think about times we had to push beyond what we thought was possible, no matter how small or trivial it might seem, we are capable of much much more.
It's more about how hard something was for you as the individual instead of trying to quantify difficulty on an absolute level.
Thanks for listening!
