Growing up in a backdrop of communist Poland I developed a strong aversion to structure and societal guidelines... which I realized I never had to be a part of.... if I did exclusively what I loved - rock climbing in far corners of the earth. I literally lived my dream - I was training Navy Seals and galavanting around the world. And yet, a time came where that no longer felt fulfilling.
And then... I had a near death experience...
It was like going skiing on a powder day. No previous tracks were visible. What would it be like to live my life properly? What if I could climb three times harder? Try something so outrageous I never believed I could do before. And so I did. Like in climbing like in life. I started trying some hard stuff, then harder stuff. It turned out that all these years of rock climbing provided me with a spiritual growth goldmine, I use this wisdom daily in my life as a life coach.
I know fear - I thrive in deconstructing it. I know insecurity - It ruled the first 30 years of my life and I now know what it’s designed for. I know courage and I know how to find it. I know that without a scrupulous self observation and rewiring of our brains, change is extremely hard to accomplish.
