During a recent shoot with Vinicios "Vinny" Silva of ANP Stunt Association, I was reminded of a quote by Bruce Lee: "There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. A man must constantly exceed his level. If you're not better than you were the day before, then what are you doing—what's the point?"
Practitioners of freerunning and parkour aim to overcome obstacles in their environment, using their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves. This involves not only athletic skill, but also discipline, training, and confidence. To me, this is synonymous with overcoming obstacles in life. What obstacles stand in the way of you and your dreams? Of you becoming a better you? Whether your dream is to become a better photographer, mother, father, friend, musician, athlete, dancer, or simply a better human being, have confidence in yourself and in your abilities. Propel yourself forward. Take one day at a time and simply strive to be better than you were the day before.
Overcoming obstacles is something that we must all deal with at some point in life. What obstacles will you overcome today?
By the way, you can catch Vinicios overcoming obstacles (hint: he plays the goalie!) in the new SK Energy Shots Colin Kaepernick Commercial.
Have a wonderful week !
