Do you remember Red Bull Stratos?!

So if you remember back in 2012, on October 14th, Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner made a daring, but AMAZING jump from the Stratosphere, 128k feet above Earth. Not an everyday challenge for a skydiver! The project name is Red Bull Stratos, and done with the sponsor of Red Bull! Recently, I’ve been so inspired by the whole project and have literally watched every single video there could be about him! It’s so crazy what mankind can achieve, and goes to show that there is quite simply no limit to life! Some of the quotes he said are super inspiring:

‘Sometimes you have to be up really high to understand how small you are…’

‘The only thing standing between you and your dream is the bullsh*t story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it’

‘The only limit in life is the one we set ourself’


The main reason I am posting his achievements is that recently I have felt so self conscious and broken, worrying about what people may be thinking of me, and if I can ever achieve my dream. Felix dreamed of becoming a helicopter pilot and eventually achieved it at age 38…. You are never to old to achieve something you’ve always wanted so make those dreams a reality! We are often too afraid to exceed our comfort level on fear of failure, but it is TRULY worth it…. NEVER give up! ❤

Check out the highlights’ clip if you want; it’s totally motivating! –

And I entered a competition where you had to write a small monologue on someone who inspired you and I chose Felix Baumgartner, with his feelings just before plummeting safely back to Earth. Here it is –
