I was blessed to see Nik Wallenda (the famous tightrope walker who has walked across the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and Times Square) perform while I was on vacation.
As impressive as Nik's balancing skill was the message he shared about not giving up and overcoming fear.
He almost gave up tightrope walking after a 25-foot fall during a 2017 rehearsal for an eight-person pyramid routine seriously injured five of his friends and family members. Luckily, Nik and two others were able to catch the rope and avoid falling.
Like Nik, it’s important for us to overcome any fears we may have about pain and keep moving forward.
