I am certainly not what most people would consider a “Daredevil.” Sure, I’ve been known to take on a double-black diamond trail or three at local ski resorts, but I’m not the dude who is going to huck a back flip off of a 30 foot cliff. Nope, not even on a powder day.

THESE guys, however, blow my mind. Again, while I wouldn’t say I’m afraid of heights, I would never choose to place myself on a thin rope hundreds of feet above the ground!!! Making the conscious decision to go after putting yourself on a high line and walking across takes a certain amount of mental “zen” and strength that I’m just not quite sure I have.

Life will often times present us with challenges and situations that instill fear in our hearts (such as waiting for the CrossFit Games Open workout release each week.) As they say in the video, though:

“It’s not about eliminating the fear. It’s about finding the courage, within the face of fear, is what matters the most. And then really, it’s just your ability to stand up and put one foot in front of the other. Kind of like how you should do everything else in life.”

Rock on, GoodLineFilms. I LOVE this clip.
