Right now there are superheroes ascendant on this planet.
At this moment there are legends in the making.
Consider Ranulph Fiennes
, a seventy-year old explorer whose CV reads like something out of a
fantasy novel. In one life he journeyed around the world on its polar axis, crossed Antarctica unsupported, climbed the Eiger, became the oldest
British person to summit Everest, and led expeditions up the Nile on hovercraft.
After suffering severe frostbite on one expedition, he also had the stones to amputate his own fingers because he was in too much pain and the doctors
insisted on waiting longer.
Or consider Ueli Steck
, a Swiss mountaineer known best for his speed ascents on huge difficult
peaks. Mountains that normally take several days to climb, he solos in mere hours.
Check out his speed ascent of the Eiger here
. I won't give spoiler alerts on how fast he climbed it, but
you'll poo yourself when it shows the time.
Or consider Alex Honnold
, a free soloist who climbs incredibly dangerous routes without any
safety gear (and usually without equipment). Here
you can see him tackling El Sendero Luminoso,
possibly the most difficult ropeless climb in known history.
Legends like these don't arise from nothing.
Lives like these aren't given at random.
The universe won't waste it's energy offering a life with Ranulph Fiennes potential to someone that'll just waste it sitting on the couch watching
It won't offer Ueli Steck opportunities to someone who won't do everything possible to master that existence.
