Hawaiian: “E ho’a'o no I pau kuhihewa”
“Try it to end the panic”
At the beginning of each big wave winter, “Clean Break” cast member Crazy Todd Robertson paddles into the first twenty five foot face of the season and, as he is about to drop in, instead of getting to his feet and surfing away from danger he steps up and leaps into the pit facing all of his fear in an act of total commitment of letting go.
In this weeks “Clean Break”‘, Chase turned ghost white as he faced his fear of jumping out of a plane from 15,000 feet. As a father his concerns rested on his young family more than fear for his own well being.
Many of us are so afraid to fail or to die that we never truly live. We never step out of our comfort zone and so are dead already. If we are not failing at something we are not taking risks. If we are not taking risks we have stopped growing. If we are not growing we are dead.
Think about what fear of failure you may be avoiding now. Determine to be bold and go for it. Feel your palms. Are they a little bit moist? Is your heart beating a little fast? just like Chase, means you are really going to do it. You are going to “Try it to end the panic!” Facing your fear becomes a rush. It sets you free.
Comment back to us about what you are going to do to step our of your comfort zone. What is the wave face you are about to dive off?
Go for it!
