You might know I love parkour, which by the way originated in France. It’s a theme in many of my favorite video games, including Assassin’s Creed (third-person) and Mirror’s Edge (first-person). Yesterday I came across a wonderful quote.
“No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”
I wholeheartedly agree, and could even say the same for our mental training. I don’t know about you, but I have yet to see even a fraction of what my mind is capable of and I’ve had some pretty interesting “coincidences” so far.
It’s a shame we no longer think this way. We take our bodies, our youth, for granted. Ask yourself why. If you haven’t yet, read Entry #4.
The quote may take a while to sink in, but every single one of you has the power to accomplish anything you put your mind towards. Using that power is completely up to you. I always strive to be my best. I hope over time I can help you do the same. Maybe I set my sights impossibly high. But I also know that something is only impossible until it’s been done the first time.
I’ll end with a few pictures of me climbing a tree. I made it probably 60-70% of the way up ^.^
On a side note if anyone can identify this tree, I’d love to know what it’s called!
To awkward endings, Pulkit
P.S. No French and Latin for the next few days. It’ll be back soon though! One more thing. I love seeing my progress in numbers and data. Below I have pictures of the countries I’ve been read in. I want to thank all of you for being such a great audience. If you haven’t yet, leave comments! I love reading your thoughts, and read & respond to all of them 🙂
